Perpetual wars ravage the battered ground

graves littered with the bones

of billions of corpses with countless tales

each could tell of their misery

harrowing demise through the carnage

of ever fed human rage!


Easily led and guided through their traditions

beliefs by convincing leaders

able to cultivate the hate and violence within

assistants given to promote

inflaming conflicts so they  rapidly expand

to once peaceful and friendly land!


Poverty covers large parts of a weary earth

scared with the warfare

as the environment adds to the desperation

a cataclysmic scenario nears

as the mega rich in their mighty towers rule

oversee us so arrogant and cruel!


What is the truth that surely has yet to be told

what deceptions existed

that we have assumed were honestly authentic

what is there actually to fear

as each day brings another unnerving suspicion

society heads towards decomposition!


Resources dwindling the population on overload

communications expanding

not for the reconciliation of a peaceful civilisation

as death and warfare boosted

technology advancing faster than we understand

life now for most is no wonderland!


The Foureyed Poet.




The Question

Why is this question being increasingly asked

when families are killed?

Not by a stranger’s hand but a family member

committing the fatal act!

The reasons it appears just cannot be found

is there a need to be profound?


Suddenly becoming a phenomena of humanity

that’s beginning to escalate!

Something that’s being reported a lot more

by the news media!

With disbelief of the crimes being committed

where often truth is omitted.


Psychologist try to understand their motives

especially where children are involved!

How loving parents take their children’s lives

brutally slaying them!

Before killing themselves a despicable act

a cruel and selfish fact!


Were they driven by desperation of debt

but most were rational!

Thought of as normal liked and respected

in most cases no warning!

No indication of any kind nor depressed

or violently stressed!


Awful how these harrowing family tragedies

continue to question our psyche.

knowing there is nothing we can do to quell it

humans are a breed apart.

Unpredictable in every action and thought

what solutions can be sought?


Life can be an unpredictable joy or a living hell!


The Foureyed Poet.
