A rant from the heart Stormwolf style ๐Ÿ˜‰

 photo Dark_Spring_by_BabyJoan_zpsqubhp8fi.jpg

Late spring lulls me with melody
and her song is one of bliss and beauty.
An orgasm of green and new beginnings.
The intensity of her lure
comforts and reassures of my connection,
almost stops my breath
in gratitude and wonder...

but I know itโ€™s a mirage.

Perhaps even, a swansong
for a life now severed from innocence
and blind trust

Thereโ€™s a subliminal hum on the breeze
that betrays an underbelly
of intense suffering and unfettered evil
loosed upon a jaded, pre-occupied
and broken world.

While my grandchildren play in the park
mothers in other countries bury their babies.
Heads are severed before a baying mob
jostling for good camera angles.
Humanity trampled into blood-splattered,
desert sands.

Governments are ramping up war rhetoric
dusting off nuclear silos
and putting the finishing touches
to their preplanned subterranean boltholes.
Brinkmanship and double dealing
upon the checker-board.
The chess pieces are flesh and blood
but not theirs, oh no,
never, theirs!

Corruption and fear stifles the weak
renders them impotent, gutless
while politically correct tongues,
betray their fellow man
and tow the party line.
Truth is highjacked (and dangerous)
and 'double speak' takes care of the guilt
of 'colateral damage'
As the farce of elections
consoles the masses
they have any say at all.

I do hold a certain compassion
for those clinging to the normality bias.
Ostrich mentality gets them through the days
and reality TV the nights.
Individual lucid thought, decried
whistle-blowers pilloried.
No boat rocking here, thank you!

The hidden agenda is death,
depopulation, global collapse,
forced inoculations, total surveillance
genetically modified, micro-chipped slavery,
a nightmare scenario.
One World Government
the Trojan Horse.

To see true is devastating
and murders spring.

"It is not dark yet
but itโ€™s getting there."

Bob Dylan

A 'rant' indeed young Storm. I myself cannot allow the end game scenario you predict to live with me. Its not that my head is in the sand, if I thought like this I would become a survivalist. You paint a bleak picture, and as always you paint it well Alison. Great writing, and so good to read you again. Now go and write one of your sexy love poems ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi Mike
Well, I go through the gamut of emotions regarding this. Rage, fear, total frustration that it's been allowed to happen and even at this late stage, people are in denial. Yes, it does your head in but I can no sooner keep quiet about it than I could sit back and allow a toddler to put their hands into an electric fire or pick up a wasp.
It's just my nature I suppose and once the scales fell from my eyes I could no longer pretend or feign ignorance to please others.
My sexy love poems are on a back burner until I do some more field research. ๐Ÿ˜‰
I needed to write something to post, so voila! I got in touch with my inner fire and this is the result. Not to everyone's taste no doubt;-/
I write to express myself and as a form of activism.

As I read this I felt the need to rush headlong towards all those who can actually do something to halt what is fast becoming inevitable and scream in their face 'can't you see what is happening?' I like you can forsee a future that scares the hell out of me and I get so frustrated that no one is doing a damn thing to stop it, my only consolation is that in time if (when) the worst happens, the earth will survive and regenerate. A powerful poem expressing a real need for huge changes, we should all have listened to Bob and his fellow singers/poets and done more then, but no one listened to the meaning behind the words. Great rant Alison, if you decide to march I'll be there! Sue ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi Sue
I have felt like screaming since I understood the plans many years ago now. To see it in its final does almost do me in ๐Ÿ˜‰ Not for me, I have come to almost detest the ways of the world as it is...but I will strive till my dying day to alert people and try to make a better world for my grandkids.
I know as you say, it's going to come...such is history repeating itself ...but this is the end time and good will overcome evil. It's written and I know it in my soul. Thank you for being willing to join in the march.
I would hate my grandkids to ever say "why did you not speak up Grandma? "
Thing is that it's very out in the open now so the scoffers will have to bite their tongues.

My feelings exactly and you express yourself so eloquently- I envy you. Nevertheless- Dylan's words have surely festered in our minds and now it may just be too late.
Dylan is a genius and you are with your words. I an glad that my children and grandchildren are happy at least.

Great rant Alison- extremely well written. And I am not fishing for votes at all I promise. Just getting in to UKA again. It's great! ๐Ÿ™

Hi Pia, I am dashing to catch a train but wanted to thank you now for your very kind and encouraging words. Women are so powerful.
I have another poem written a few weeks ago about such things...may well post it now. I don't care any longer what people think of 'me' It's immaterial in the long run. What matters most is being true to self and having the courage of your convictions.

Good to see you back.

Mike and Sue have said it so beautifully that I have nothing to add here. I read it many times to internalize the murder of spring that is coming out so clear, especially with the repetition of certain words, e.g. severed, double speak. It's indeed a Storm style! Strangely enough, I am reminded of a song of Tagore (a Bengali poet) whose translation of the first couplet goes like this:
Sky has filled me with light
Fill it I will with songs

Fill the sky with your poems Alison! Best. Supratik

Such a contrast to "Blue Nun and Babycham" which I read just before this one. A sign of the changing times, unfortunately. As I glance at my tv screen, it's all too familiar. I believe that the majority of people are good and will do all they can against the evil in this world.
Powerful words, Alison.

Hi Gee,
Thanks for reading and commenting. Yes, I believe that the vast majority of people are good. Sadly that often means they are unable to comprehend evil on a huge scale even although it's only a few decades since the atrocities of WW2 many think the horrors of the Nazis cannot happen again.
However, atrocities are happening daily and the people who pull the government's strings globally do not have humanity's good in mind.

I could (And probably should) agree with every word you so eloquently wrote here Alison. I am, though, the eternal optimist and have faith in the human spirit. Not from any religious viewpoint I hasten to add it's just that I believe in the basic goodness of ordinary folk and their incredible ability to survive.
Luv & hugz

Hi Micheal,
I realise that this is controversial. I also believe in the human spirit but sadly as Edmund Burke said "All it takes for evil to succeed is for good men to do nothing"
That applies here and it is my belief that we cannot just sit back and trust in the goodness in the human spirit. There are times and seasons to all things as it says in the Bible. This is a time to act before it's too late (if its not too late already.)

People should understand the news is all sanitised by the mainstream media who are all under the control of 6 agencies. We are fed a diet of what they all agree has to be reported in order to control the public but the reality behind the news is far more dire than they are letting on. When do we read now about Fukushima for instance? Even that alone is now raging out of control killing the entire Pacific ocean.

I care too much about humanity and my wonderful Mother Earth to say nothing.
My next poem is more hopeful, written a few weeks ago but never posted. I have decided to continue to speak out no matter how controversial it is!
haha Thanks as always for reading and taking the time to comment.
