The Bottom of the Food Chain

By Tony DeLorger © 2014


I plead for a semblance of order,

in this, a trying moment of disparagement,

when accusations fly like birds released,

shitting on the silk pin-striped shoulders,

of the elitists who steer the course of our lowly lives.


Whatever remains in place for us,

we'll never know before it ensues,

and we, living in 'democracy' know nothing:

little mushrooms quietly eking out a life,

neck high in bullshit.


Lost in the play of Hollywood dreams,

we gormless beings, filled with starlight,

dumb down into a semi-lucid haze of unreality,

unaware of all the ploys and future set,

for the likes of we of common life.


While wars and battles rage,

creatures vie for earthly rewards,

corporations gather into conglomerates,

and countries dissipate as energy, water and food,

become the property of the few, who will ascend.


Bunkers deep are filled with supplies, ready,

for when the holocaust comes, the elite will survive,

and we will be culled to benefit the new order,

the all encompassing power, the new technologies

that will benefit the new world.


All is in place, and time awaits,

the four corners of earth to meet in compliance,

and we, the pawns of wealth, power and technology,

shall abide or be gone within the new construct,

the new alliance of civilizations, hidden from view.


Humanity sits upon a ledge,

and change is the master of a tenuous future.


The greatest burden is knowing too much, and not being able to do anything about it.

      Lucky you in S.A., we had the 40+ early last week, but the last few have been great hovering around 30. they expect a rise again later this week. We could do with rain badly though.

      Completely agree John, writing is cathartic and healing. I do get stuck on tangents sometimes and have to snap myself out of it. But there is little intention when I write, I just open up and go for it. Its how I've always worked. Have a great day; we've got five days in a row of over 40 degrees. Lots of inside time to write.

      I have been going through the same thing. I'm sure my followers can monitor my moods by the content of my hubs. I usually try and throw a little humorous poem in the middle of my darker stuff though to lighten the general mood. Just write from the heart and what you feel at the time, stay true to yourself, and writing is a good form of therapy as well.

      Thanks John; I have been writing a little dark lately. I find my writing mirrors my moods and concerns, and I never fight it, simply let it all out. It doesn't make me popular on HP, but I remain true to myself as an individual and writer. Glad you liked it and related. Take care mate!

      What a dark and powerful piece of writing Tony. The way the world is heading it could come to that. It will take a concerted effort to turn things around before it's too late. Well written.
