Watching (poem)

At our ease

Thoughts to please

Peace to seize

They’re watching

-

On the street

Things we greet

Home’s retreat

Watching

-

Words on phone

Moans and groans

All we own

Watching

-

Madness and sadness

Pervades through our life

Meeting our needs

Telling us what we want

Watching

-

Thoughts in head

Might have said

Jokes we spread

They’re watching

-

Viewing show

Mindless flow

Letting go

Watching

Watching

-

Endless and hopeless

Prying ears and eyes

Promising safety

As something else still dies

Watching

-

Lives they saved

Money’s knaves

To our graves

These depraved

Still watching

Watching


Music only
