Into The Abyss

.

.

“He drove his mind

into the abyss

where poetry

is written.”

.

― George Orwell

Elfje:

.

mind

over matter

seeing is believing

illusions and skulduggery abound

mysticism

.

Haiku

.

rivers to oceans

water the essence of life

naming the seasons

.

Poem:

.

 

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
