Poet's Corner

Posted: Thursday, April 07, 2011


By Celia Cash

The world is groaning, crumbling

moaning, under the strain.

Earthquakes, Floods, Disaster!

Isn't it peace we seek, not pain?

Hard to Keep your Balance

When there are wars on every plain

The Holy Land less Holy

and yet the warriors stop

to Kneel upon their prayer mats

offering prayers of worship

Doesn't it make you wonder

"Whats so wrong with a Democrat

who refuses to choose sides and Blunder

rather shows respect for All Humanity?"

Because prejudice is never where its at.

Makes me Ponder on the Pleas of Millions in Unison

Why can't it Harness power to fight nuclear Rain?

Springtime Arriving with Hopeful Moments.

Smell the Roses, watch the Sunsets

Life is Short and Before you know it

one soul exits as a Brand New One enters

Show Mother Earth and all her Creatures

Respect and Love so Peace can Feature.
