“life on fire”

life keeps burning into Earth’s core
gold-plated pen on imported paper . . .
insane politicians, disguised as humans
don their games of ultimate absurdity
against the wildest definition of sanity
each de-constructs, destroys and destructs
until their own brains shrink day by day
alongside ours, which we have obviously sent
onto lost grounds somewhere else to play

  1. You are speaking in a language that the literate world is finally starting to comprehend, and your economy of words makes it near impossible to ignore reading.Bravo! … and if I may add, my economical two cents worth in reply;

    Politicizing We
    – of subservient naiveté –

    Among leaders politic
    Seek to survive fate,
    Wants befog dyslexics
    With unqualified state,
    Of IQ thin distinction
    Will attempt to negate,
    In a clutter of unction
    Schemes of no define,
    And scant proficiency
    For dispirited minds,
    Who’ll not prod ability
    Makes to politicize we
    Of subservient naiveté!
