Karmic Ruin

Mothers beware
Your maternal sins
Bide their time
As sons grow into men
The role of dutiful son;
the singular fatherly inheritance
His masculinity a life long performance
Of karmic violence
Without mirrors
There can be no reflection
No understanding
No compassion
Bitterness unleashed
On the old frail woman
Bewildered and hurt
Unable to challenge or run
She can only sit and absorb
The volcanic eruption
He cannot see
Ageing insists
The woman before him
Be understood differently
Without memories
She is not the same
Each sunrise is new
What happened in the past
Is the past
To understand this
Is to let go of the ruin
And forgive



The world is violent
Volcanic hatred
Gushing and searing
Everyone in its path
Leaving charred remains
Of humanity never to heal
As it should with the salve 
Compassion respect and acceptance
But to keep the wound open
For the next generation of hate
To take up arms in the name of
Lest we forget
Heralded savior of all things democracy
A true ideal
Served up each night
To the army of followers
Eager to be King of their world
Based on a serfdom of supremacy
A ladder like any other
Proprietorship and speech
Right to their own life
But not to recognise others
Human Rights
Decades of eloquent declarations
Caged in grand towers
Nobel in their thinking, yet
Impotent in application
Humanity fights for survival
In the face of a global hatred
