Promised Values


GREED

High-level criminality persists through to this modern day
The power of greed-money maintains its stay
Politicians of every stripe becoming too willing to play
Opposition to such influence, by death, is easily put away

Universal changes for the good are easily contrived
Yet common sense solutions are forcefully denied
Mainstream Media propaganda reinforcing the lies
So what is right versus what is done are destined to collide

Pressure is building and becoming harder to contain
Extremist to the right and the left making louder their claim
That oligarchic power can no longer be tolerated, be sustained
Use of destructive, deadly force no longer a viable refrain.

The warnings for decades have been visible, evidently clear
The 21st century Peoples common voice increasingly sincere:
They covet what has been promised, values held dear
And willing to fight for their Rights, to death, without hesitation or fear.

The Right to Breath

Right to Breath

Banking of Nature: An insightful and somewhat disturbing look at current financialization of earthly resources that opens the environment to speculative machinations of Wall Street with its dire reputation for the loss of trillions of dollars worth of wealth by the crash of 2008, the impact of which is still being dealt with and, now this greed machine is targeting the natural resources on which to bet.  

Watch this documentary presented by the Passionate Eye:

http://www.cbc.ca/passionateeye/episodes/banking-nature

to which I felt the need to express my distraught via the following poem:
Right To Breath

Financial machinations of white shirts and ties
Entombed in glittering glass and concrete towers
While outside, increasingly, the monetized world dies
Succumbing to insatiable greed of stolen global power

Nations stripped of resources for short-sighted economic gain
Common Peoples’ lives measurably deemed expendable
When barren, deforested land for them is all that remains
A reality scourge that is inhumane and incomprehensible

Irrational reasoning of so-called wise and learned men
Around boardroom tables devise, scheme and plot;
Their foolishness of folly questionably there to defend
When all that motivates is growth of their riches sought

Stock market speculation of all future life here on Earth
Already an experienced, proven destructive ending course
Will lead to all that is living being given its economic worth
A time when the `right to breath’ will be a financial source

Steadfastly Ahead


To view this volatile world by its extremes,
Difficult to define their measure by any other mean,
Essentially, leads to disasters unfathomably obscene
Yet, unfortunately, no other conclusion is viable to glean.

The binary portrayal of all human issues confronted
Demands and delivers an outcome progressively stunted;
Historical records examined validate this presumptive
Yielding a contemporary civilization stagnant and blunted.

Progressive models to humanity’s advance have long been touted
Yet, these envisioned dreams become quickly diminished and politically flouted.
Even though voiced and demonstrated desires are publicly shouted;
Economic and monetary limitations, excuses given, though strongly doubted.

The pessimistic conclusion to all that here can be said
Is beyond the myth of `tea leaves’ to be read;
The future of global, civil unrest and potential for blood to be bled;
Leads to all that is undesirous, with certainty, lies steadfastly ahead.

Gapping Wound’s Bleed


 

world divide

Malignant chaos’ sufferance globally grows;
Chronicling an age of brutality, suppression imposed;
Religion, ethnicity, skin colour given cause to diminish, abuse;
Repetitively spoken with indifference, nightly, by mainstream News.

Political factions volley reason for remedy course to chart;
Pulling the strings of humanity’s ailing, callusing heart;
Hope; a candle lit to a darkened room, looms bright,
Yet, is easily snuffed, its flame doused by hysteria and fright.

The battle between goodness and evil, thought to be ancient foe,
Yet, deeper into a darkening chasm of hate seems the current flow;
Modernity; period of intellect able to overcome these incessant storms,
Renders without precedent; historical antecedent to this expected norm.

The hammered wedge of divineness that grows increasingly wide;
Bought by differing nationalism, theology, moral beliefs and pride;
Need be diffused by reason of intellect, compassion and compromise to succeed
So, the collective of humanity can finally cauterize this gaping wound’s bleed.

World Affairs – Slowly Unravelling


crisis

Epicentre: Ground Zero – SEPTEMBER 11, 2001 a.k.a.: 911

Thanks to President George W. Bush Administration’s knee-jerk response to a planned execution to derive the response it has garnered some fifteen years later, finds the world spinning out of control in a futile attempt to counter every conceivable issue imaginable that is detrimental to the longevity of human existence on this space cycling planet.

Migration of displaced humans a.k.a.: migrants, is imposing untolled hardship on every aspect involved in the issue from the unfortunate migrants themselves, innocent ponds in the senseless and brutal conflicts imposed by out-of-touch psychopathic politicians and bureaucrats, to the innocent citizens of the countries literally being invaded by scores of men, women and their children generating purely hateful, dogmatic reactions on a scale to be considered a crime against humanity.

The following video plainly illustrates the growing, divisive issues gaining momentum as the flow of refugees from primarily African nations, who are primarily Muslim representing all strata of this faith’s beliefs. The result; it creates a two-pronged problem in the eyes of those vehemently opposed to opening their nation’s borders.

Firstly, the threat jihadist elements will be amongst the migrants raising potential for terrorist actions on their soil and second, the direct and physical assault on the civility and traditions they do not wish imposed upon.

The irony lies in what the migrant, questioned as to why Britain and not France states: `Britain is a `Kingdom’, a place where he and his family can flourish. The United States is first and Britain is second.’ This undoubtedly stems from the false and misleading propagandist imagery and rhetoric fed to poorer nations by way of international western media of every sort, now coming to bite them in the proverbial ASS!

In the meantime, the People of Greece already repressed due to unimaginable austerity measures imposed upon they and their government by the European Union principally enforced by Germany, seconded by France, are being over-run by migrant refugees attempting to escape the death and destruction in all parts of the Middle East and northern and central Africa. Though the Greek Islands are serving as a way-stop for refugees targeting Germany as their ultimate destination, here too, the local populace feels unduly pressured to morally respond to the crisis, a crisis created by leaders of other countries. An imposition difficult to accommodate even in the best of economic times.

To where this growing humanitarian crisis will ultimate lead is open to speculation, informed or otherwise but, given the timid international response to the dire state for so many and growing, the outcome in any framework of common sense knows it is not favoured to be good.
