Help!

Knew he was just one of the herd

nothing special so true

never be a big well-known star

in his lifetime never go far

just wanted to help his children

keep away from the villain

in a society that is often corrupt

where man and nature erupt!

 

Violence surrounds us at every turn

endless war a big concern

crimes upon the individual increase

as our rights ever decrease

more struggling to make ends meet

as more sleep on the street

as public services are drastically cut

and needed facilities shut!

 

Pressure on the population growing

strain on their lives showing

the billionaires flaunt their life style

many find it harder to smile

as governments become less united

peace and harmony are blighted

more worry for their children’s safety

authorities show complacency!

 

Around us can we often sense suspicion

as like this father on a mission

being aware trying to give that support

as the young are often caught

in this cycle bombarded with imagery

disturbing and full of treachery

we all should fear what we are not told

believe what has been foretold!

 

Much a mystery for millennia nothing is new!

Inhumane!

They asked for nothing but respect

to be noticed their voice heard

not spat upon treated as inhumane

by the smartly dressed passersby

the smell of their expensive perfume

sitting in the gutter with no room!

 

The big cars going by spewing fumes

unable to eat or stay clean

once had their own home and dignity

but loss of work and debt

forced the young family onto the street

the true society did meet!

 

More found themselves in a poverty trap

the comfortably off sneered

those who knew understood found it hard

realizing their situation severe

as the support now rapidly disappeared

and meltdown for them all neared!

 

A society where the dived was beyond help!

Just!

Just to walk along any road is hard

who is around

uneven pavements rubbish thrown

the impression

of a society without responsibility

or sensitivity!

 

What if you were attacked or ill

who would help

some would go around or steal

respect is rare

any physical health disabilities

or mental instabilities!

 

The vulnerable at risk of abuse

police are stretched

likewise the ambulance services

that feeling of despair

profit comes before any integrity

or real sincerity!

 

The monsters from nightmares

cannot compare

with cruelty humans can inflict

on those with little

taking their self-respect away

when unable to pay!

 

Those on high can never grasp

the term surviving

think they understand issues

by removing funds

squeezing the will to carry on

then hope has gone!

Looking Down!

Looking down at my young clear skin

full of energy and hope

innocent not seeing any fear around

a life time ahead of me

then no internet nor mobile phones

robots and human clones!

 

Less complicated not the pressures

vinyl records and cassettes

shops closed Sundays families spoke

safe for children outside

being able to grow in natural stages

not endless exam pages!

 

Today I look down at my ageing skin

struggling to keep warm

nobody calls or ever bothers to visit

harder to pay rising bills

families split lacking close support

respect no longer taught!

 

The elderly are considered a burden

in this faltering society

where corruption affects everybody

greed no compassion

services shut for lack of funds its said

on egg shells we do tread`!

 

Life may have been hard but people cared

kindness and help freely shared!

 

The Foureyed Poet.
