I am the wall,
where daily
they lined up men,
to be executed
by a dictator
who disliked
their beliefs.
I ingested many
of the bullets,
while they
swallowed death.
Their blood spray
marks my stones
in abstract sorrow.
I am the wall,
where men once stood,
now I stand alone.

Heavenly Frustration.

 

God dropped

his free will stamp

on Cleveland,

 
just after seven boys

 

beat a man

to the point,


where his leg needed

seven pins and a plate.


He could have

dropped it anywhere,
Iraq, Afghanistan,

Washington

or the Sudan,
but he chose this city.
Mainly because

this land he loved
is constantly cleaved

by endless violence.
No one was killed,
it is not his

place to interfere,
but he will be

coming back

soon to claim it,
along with all

of his children
from this

chaotic planet.

      MFB- you have more heart grabbing thoughts. I love your compassion.

      I love the way you post your hubs.

      Most are out here in Hubworld learning the ways to manipulate the system of hubbing. They make a hub. They don't publish right away. They don't publish two in one day. They backlink. They play the game and they will prosper more.

      I know that you and I should follow more rules to make a little over nothing at all.

      The hub-editors are not for creation for the creation but they are for creation for profit. It's not for me to judge. I'd like a little bread too. I just can't play in the band. I guess we're more soloists. It's nice to hear your horn above so many.

      Thanks for being here!
