We Are Being Played
So many flames have been extinguished and
Deprived of crucial life-giving oxygen
While denying Mother Earth of vital
Human heat, warmth and love.
Mankind’s raging rivers of ignorance,
Intolerance and arrogance
Drown everything with its demanding, unquenchable,
But soon there will be a roaring howl of anger
Emanating from deep within the bowels of this planet
We call home.
A fury that will be felt vibrating and throbbing
Within the veins of our lost souls
As we try to grapple with the consequences coming due.
And the demons, they mock us and laugh at us
All the while pretending to be angels.
Or maybe they are just angels
Trying to show us how we’ve gone wrong?
Yet our seething mortal pride and ego keep our eyes,
And our hearts, tightly closed.
We’re just human fools.
We’re being played.
