Ever Green...those men
By Tony DeLorger © 2013
Ever green the heart of man,
irresolute, accepting sham,
compliant in all of heart and mind,
maintaining the known, no reason or rhyme,
ineptitudes all running wild,
while deluded egos choose vacant side,
and so the lives of mindless men,
dictate a course, pure hearts condemned.
Then, when kingdoms fall and power forlorn,
when justice in balance a line is drawn,
and folly rises to meet its fate,
those green hearted men in shadows take,
and disappear from righteous indignation,
the will of God their noble installation,
and now in view of unjust reward,
they, with their stash and grace withdraw.
And we the brunt of this green brigade,
must pay the penalty of what our votes have made,
and in less than kind and accepting will,
must let them go no penance instil,
no loss of income, no struggle for they,
installed for life their future made,
and we, for all our reasons see,
just what a narcissist aims to be.
So ever green our leaders view,
and what they make of their time imbues,
our lives like pawns so vulnerable and helpless,
the world a simple game of chess, so tedious,
decisions made with all conditions met,
hardly affect the common good and yet,
we stand behind such horrendous hurt,
presented as just and in God's name deserved.
When will man grow up?
It's hard not to be cynical.
