Run for cover


What is that noise?

Choppers on approach

Panic stricken

Take cover like a roach


Overhead now,

hovering still

That dirty beast

Contemplating the kill


There it goes

That dark heavy mass

See it plummet to the ground

What a blast!


It leaves its chaos

As it flies away

Screams, yelling

Where the kids normally play


Deafening numbness

Everything so loud

Smell of chlorine

Poisonous cloud


People stumbling

Gasping for air

Vomiting violently

People scared


I cannot breath

Coughing uncontrollably

Grating at my eyes

Collapsing fatally….

When you hear the word freedom

What do you think?

Speak openly, no propaganda

Work, live eat and drink

We are fortunate, very in fact

Not killed for speaking, protests or acts

We are not in camps, malnourished, ill

Doctors a plenty, pharmacies dish out pills

Pushed into slavery, sex toys, prostitution too

Simple life, coffee, work, family, house, true

Complain, go on, tired, no money, stress

Our life is easy when we consider the rest

We have freedom, we can achieve, obtain

Reflect before contemplating about your pain

Others are worse off in poverty

Others escape war and certain death

Others eat rationed rice

Others live what they call life

Will you think about their freedom tonight?

Their country with practically no human rights

This poem is a thought about them

One day we’ll make a difference, when?

It’s coming

Madness, two leaders doing deranged things

We don’t yet know what it’s going to bring

A country that feels they have to protect themselves

By testing missiles and whatever else

The world is in outrage at their outrageous acts

They refuse to change, they continue in fact

Not even a president of the United states

Who speaks like a dictator and raises the stakes

Kim calls trump mentally deranged

Sorry guys, what you are doing, your both insane!

Madman! rocketman! Let the insults fly

Like the US jets doing their fly by

Now trump is a dotard, according to Kim

Old, mental capacity ready for the bin

Trump fires losers that don’t get results

Kim just shoots them, doesn’t accept insults

Where are we going, what is next for the world

World war three perhaps, only time will tell.
