Tomorrow I Will Hope

People Over Politics, World Over Wealth!

Take Your Pick. Too ~ Philip Brent Harris

Pick Your Poison ~ Philip Brent Harris

~~~~~

We act, our worth next to nothing
as many of us struggle to survive.
While mountebanks and madmen
set rules, they always change again.
With religion to say, we must wait
that our reward comes after we die.
Our governments no longer rule us;
I’m uncertain they ever really have.
They fight to keep our world crazy
send our children off to kill and die
while their masters fill their needs.
For need begets need, power craves
power. More addiction conquers us.

Still, I wake up each morning seeking
a hope and happiness I learned young.
mine by right or some other glibness.
And I have never thought I am dumb.
I can see I swallowed down the story
that everyone can be their best, rise or
climb to the top of any mountain peak.
We are fed a steady diet of such swill.
We may never purge our systems and
not because we’re too weak, think we
are owed a miracle or some magic pill.
We consume this tale in our packaged
formula from first breath until boot hill.

  1. I’ve been thinking along similar lines, about how the messages of the system are so powerful that we can’t see the wood for the trees.

  2. Yeah, Some days it’s hard to remember to just look around and judge for ourselves.
