Something Wondrous

People Over Politics, Survival Over Surrender, World Over Wealth!

Clothes Make the Man ~ Philip Brent Harris

~~~~~

In the early morning hours once again.
Tired enough to be in bed, not to sleep.
I can smile, say it is all good, pretend,
Admit the world’s a mess; it will keep.
When a day slips away and night rules,
Watch eyelid-movies; my mind refuels.

Tired enough to be in bed, not to sleep.
Is there a meter anywhere I can check
That gauges it? Ones I see, not a peep.
Some advice is wise, yet most is dreck.
I suppose now we can no longer stand
On Zanzibar; you may not understand.

I can smile, say it is all good, pretend,
Delusion, the power to burn us down
Causing acts of madness to what end?
History will turn their verbs to nouns.
When some believe every lie is truth,
They think they’re John Wilkes Booth.

Admit the world’s a mess; it will keep
When half the people were never united.
The hatred they hold is not buried deep.
Peace declared, one side never requited.
Stars sit in a field or span two blue bars.
Each was determined by fighting wars.

When a day slips away and night rules,
It’s true for republics and empires, too.
Those who have not learned this fools.
Each knows what the other says untrue.
So brother kills brother, father and son.
Sisters, mothers, too, could be anyone.

Watch eyelid-movies; my mind refuels.
Can we sit quietly, stop saying a word?
No need to clash, riot, to arrange duels
Will we realize there’s sense to be heard?
I can’t know it all, nor, I think, can you.
Perhaps something wondrous will ensue.
