Decadent lifestyles of

the miffed and heinous

take center stage

with bells and chimes


      Singin’ the blues

 in textured pastels,

they descend to greater

feats of misery

   and mayhem.

Pay them their due

    or suffer

   the likes of a

World Trade Center massacre

    or a despot-led riot.

And quiet the whispers

   of the love and peace

      we crave

      so we remain sane

  in our depths of depression.



Rod C. Stryker

An older poem. Hope you like it.
