Into The Abyss



“He drove his mind

into the abyss

where poetry

is written.”


― George Orwell







over matter

seeing is believing

illusions and skulduggery abound





rivers to oceans

water the essence of life

naming the seasons





memories lost, memories rekindled

long timers share their stories from hell

their old faces scarred and wrinkled

of wedded bliss and good times they tell


moments of heroic courage and valor

fox hole prayers hoping to survive

the countries flag their favorite color

what the world was like in forty-five


the troops their  mighty numbers dwindle

some battles only remembered on library pages

their step and cadence no longer nimble

their cause and effort are one for the ages


how soon the next generation conveniently forgets

self consumed by their technological advances

will they eventually suffer agonizing regrets

indifference slowly diminishes their chances


the ego, the super ego, the id, debated

why does man want to destroy humanity

mementos and thoughts of the past desecrated

what will ever end this absurd insanity


don’t be the lemming, be the voice

when the swamp becomes putrid, pull the plug

hope and faith that there will be a time to rejoice

when all men will be greeted by a loving hug


history is know to repeat

can the cycle be broken

will Satan suffer defeat

can peace be the only language spoken


only time will tell



ME and the Boss
