On a Bus to Nowhere

On a Bus to Nowhere

                                                              For Closure ~ Philip Brent Harris


As we are all
and all are us,
if we rise or fall.
why make a fuss?
Eating daily is nice
Clothing, shelter, too.
Haves and have-nots
but at what price,
selfish, greedy people
jump the queue?

How do the rest of us,
who far outnumber
those we grant power
not wake from slumber
put them on a bus,
send them farther and
further away than hours.
These are questions
I hope you’ve asked.
If not, now’s the time.

It’s hardly the worst
you’ll be tasked.
The longer we wait
the more we’re cursed
and higher we’ll need
to climb, in poorer state.
If the greedy-guts
on top would descend,
listen, full stop.
Will we sound nuts
if we ask them to place
a portion of their pyrite
on the scale, to brace
our side, soon to fail.
To even the balance
we weigh, the same height
It might become right
Yet, who am I to say?
What’s in a name?

Well, I am all
and all are we,
so big or small,
we’re all the same,
at least to me.


Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment
