They Failed to Act

~~~~~ They spend their money to conceal their shame.Not in the dirt, but beneath piles of filthy lucre.They pretend to think and pray, as they prey onThe souls of youth, offering no hope or succor.They’ll frown, rapidly don their mask to glower.Wring their hands, and deposit our grief in theReliquary of their callous, stony-hearted deceit.

Stop!

M.A.D. ~ Philip Brent Harris ~ CMTM II ~~~~~ It’s hard to know what to think. Has the world gone mad? Or is it that there are just so many people and so much news centered around this pandemic, war, murder, mayhem, disaster, mass shooters and disturbed bombers that we cannot escape for even a […]

Always and Ever?

~~~~~ Where are all the animals hiding? What do you imagine it means? Gone from places they were residing. Has our landscape grown too lean? Is there any way we can change this or is it become it become much too late? Will we exit the stage to a boo and a hiss? Has this […]

U.S. of A. Gun Violence Lament

~~~~~ As we lay on the ground bleeding, we thought of all we were needing. When we knew what must be said, it was much too late; we were dead. ~~~~~ People Over Politics, World Over Wealth! Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength, Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment Unite the World! ~~~~~    

Eons Upon Eons

~~~~~ A train whistle sounds in the distance, shifts and moans, jams with the night. The critters are there, hiding, stalking. Nest of coyote pups yips, demanding now their mother’s home; me first me. We might find the process disgusting, gross, though sometimes, we’re fools, without wit, wisdom of a court jester, or a town […]

Eyes to Perceive

Indoctrinated early, till they’ve lost any imagination, more than lost for the no-longer known arts. Magic, even that which exists, existed, disguised as miracles or science so far beyond the ken of mortal […]

Flowing Through Time ~ Philip Brent Harris ~~~~~ Where are we going? Where have we been? Watch the camera take the pictures now, on our journey to other times and other places. Video to encode sound and feel, language. Music, art, stories and, oh, so many things serve as our time machines, although static. We […]

Until We’re Gone

~~~~~ Must we always hack our way through the most difficult stretch of the world? For, if we look, we’ll find our own path. Our trail may have trials but grants us with treasures we have hidden along the way. Our core expressed as only we can, even while others fail to notice; cannot comprehend […]

If They Can

~~~~~ The children flit from shadow to shadow. Hidden then exposed then hidden again. What’s the danger? It is no longer a game. Explosion heard nearby, as our seas rise. Weapons drumming staccato, as air burns Earth is barren. Nothing will grow hence. Grenades and mortar rounds launch even in a late, glorious smog enhanced […]
