Douglas Polk- Two Poems

the recession

paper and promises,
used to manipulate reality,
money to be made,
while people starve,
ideology drifts,
people left behind,
waiting for times to change,
and the sun to shine.

America's Fall

the Middle East in flames,
Washington D.C. divorced from reality,
terrorism on the rise,
healthcare to decide who shall live,
and who shall die,
responsibility not a duty,
but a threat,
to national leaders the world over,
the decline and fall of the American Empire has begun,
sadly nowhere to hide,
no place to run,
democracy on life support,
freedom no longer a concept,
but only a word.
