The Prisoners


Senseless Violence

The Prisoners

Looking warily out

gated windows,

the

multiple locks

are merely symptomatic

lined down

thick wooden

doored domiciles

lining block after block

in the cities

of the

damned

eyed the moving

shadows

ever threatening

out of exposed corners

without fail

fingers point

never realizing

own responsibility

towards  long

dormant

a languid awareness

now where

only

accusations exist,

long a slumbering

people

ever completely unaware

of  already having

been imprisoned

by our own societal choices

staring down at our own shackles:

apathies

addictions

preoccupations

senseless violence

murder

rape

hate

prejudices

drugs

alcohol

ignorance

intolerance

religiosity

  1. This felt heavy on my soul Len, yet we all need to know…nice piece!

  2. Reminds me of a song which you have perhaps heard. If not, give it a listen, you might relate. “Graffiti the World” by Rehab.

  3. Thanks for showing interest in what I put out too. I sincerely hope you continue to find my works entertaining & pleasurable. Be safe.
