There’s something wrong, with the world, with us,
Went to sleep one night, woke up to a nightmare
Beliefs are now skewered, anger everywhere
Our history ignored, its lessons lost in the fog
A warped projector showing rerun scenes
Nothing changes, expecting different from the same,
We haven’t learned a goddamned thing

    Hi, Mike,

    I’m reasonably sure your words mirror those of a lot of Americans at this point in time. Not to mention the Italians, French, and the rest of the world.

    Your poetry had a nice balance to it, and I liked the rhythm. (That’s about the only thing I can comment on when it comes to poetry.)

    Thank you for sharing,

    Hi Mike

    You are good at this poetry stuff. You say what you think and that’s the way it should be.

    We seem to never take notice of the things that have happened before. Take this darn Corona Virus for example. Last time it was Sars and this one has come from the same place. How did they let this happen and that’s just a brief example.

    I love your work.

      Thanks, P. D. I can’t write flowery, just straight ahead. It’s the only way I seem to be able; and yeah, we never learn from history, especially now that America has a shit president who doesn’t read, and isn’t interested in the past.

    Hello MikeS

    Very true and well said.

    I don’t think a truer thing has been said than, “History repeats itself.” The problem is that we let it happen, I think. Well, somethings are beyond our control, but somethings we can control LOL.

    Well done.
