Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Will There Be a Dawn?
 

 


The sun has set on a
momentous day,
a day of agony
so morose.

The sad fluting of crickets
seems to say,
“This tastes of a
continuing dose”.

Croaking pond frogs sing
the first chorus
of this dirge cloaked in
winnowing hope.

The wise old owl, reduced to
mewling for us,
sees the world at the
end of its rope.

The scent of impending death
awakens dogs
who seek a clear view of
a howling moon.

Technicolor dreams are no longer
enabling cogs
since the dromedary crested the
furthest dune.

Warring nations, as well as,
tribes waging war
opened the portal to this
infestation of grief.

As each wave of usurpers gains
a coveted shore
the tree of brotherhood sadly
sheds another leaf.
