Secrets

Secrets

.

This is a land of secrets

whispered behind closed doors

a raised hand bans lip reading

background machinations

use your imaginations

everything has its price

and money has the power

assassinations are for the taking

murder is for the making

and the price is always right

where is the law –gone before a fall

no longer able to drive a wedge

between good and evil

excise the rot from a bowl of fruit

the weevils from the food

corruption is the name of the game

and the players are able

to sit around the table pushing

kings queens and pawns back and forth

toppling governments

no longer servants but sovereigns

puffed up with their own importance

and the tale continues with whispers

getting louder, becoming shouts

and only now becoming heard

by ones who listen and could take action

the few brave enough to speak out

the rest deliberately blind

too inconvenient to see…

Honesty

Post No. 796

Honesty

.

Seeing through a looking glass

Remembering with integrity

Trying with utmost sincerity

Unmolding from its history

Does the path run straight and true

Or does it take on another hue?

.

Selective memories subconsciously

We continue unaware to place ourselves

In a different light, seemingly forever right

Wishful thinking becomes a fact-or

Allowing us the liberty to ride

Upon that rainbow in the sky.

Caught Up by Life

Post No. 795

Caught Up by Life

 

Living in a world of words

Dizzying whizzing as I lie in bed

While they whirl around my head

A carousel, a wishing well

A spelling bee buzzes in and out

Playing catch-me-if-you-can

Can, can, can, all the rage

With dancers on a Paris stage

Memories are all we have

Smoke and mirrors reflecting

Deflecting through the glass

Champagne bubbles while we try

To read the answers in our eyes

But time has been and gone

Too late to question were we right

Or were we wrong…

Search for Shangri-La

Post No. 794

Search for Shangri-La

.

In vain we seek our Shangri-La

In covert hideaways,

Darkest corners,

Shaded, sweet smelling arbours,

Peaceful harbours…

.

There is no shelter from confronting storms,

Where the wind howls and the world quakes;

There is no haven safe enough,

There is nought but faith on which to clutch

As we pray for those we love…
