Cranberry Ichor – sonnet – September 28, 2015

From where does this infection come
To which we all seem to succumb?
Our atavistic fears become
A bony heartbeat – inhuman drum.

Inhale exhale then goose-step walk …
As nebulous hate mongers talk,
Of a dark menacing migrant flock
[Vague figures lined-up on a dock].

Cranberry ichor floods the streets
Under pink jackboot’s metal cleats!
[Save the money of the elite!]
As history’s lessons we repeat.

From the banks of our prosperity
What lessons leave we to posterity?

    • Very welcome for the comment … it’s so sad that each generation has to try to rectify the precedent generation’s mess-ups … and then wind up passing on other mess-ups that complicate the lives of future generations. Actually more often than not we tend to repeat the same fundamental errors or actions that we’ve always made … one wonders if humanity will ever begin to learn from its experience.
