Corners

They meet

On the edges

Of a circle

.

Wall parties of

Jealousy and envy

Pride and ego

Fortune and fame

.

Hiding in

Strait linear lines

Painted disguises sneak up

From behind on American streets

.

Where’d you say it was?

Around the corner

Where dark meets bleak

Where deception meets discreet

.

Patriot is their last resort

The bastion of no retreat

Power cohorts

Becoming harder to beat

.

In their corner

Circling the wins

Losing is the mourners

Battling for free wind

.

Revolutionary solution

Distracted by pollution

Diverted by your income

Bought and sold to- you’re someone

.

Who are we American Eagles?

Sparrows of desire and rewards

Busy little business beavers

Vacationing from freedoms war

.

Circles clinging to edges

At the corners of destruction

A brand new generation

Separating patriotic customs

.

Detour; while freedom is under construction

Nice angst filled verse of disillusionment and despair. The feeling I get from the poem is one I often get. the other day I thought how a country is like a lover or a family member. If you see that loved one going in a bad direction, it is your obligation, your responsibility to let them know, to protest, to insist on a change. Thanks for the poem Vango.

Exactly, nice association. The older I get I just want to slap someone and tell them to wake up- this is your life-your freedom to get control of your quality time, the time to live with wonder, love , children, freinds, lovers, nature, your feelings, rather than get yourself up to face another work day to make money for some billionaire you've never met, for a goverment who gives only lip service. Just so you can live in a box with corners.

It took me a few times to read this to get the whole effect. Your words are becoming more powerful and have multiple meanings, which in turn makes me re-read until I think I FINALLY have something to say! lol As you already know, I believe we have similar views on life and the things that are taken for granted... with that being said... this piece makes me feel the frustration of many americans and well people in general, that we are living life with no real purpose. The outcome of living in a box is, eventually rotting in a box. This piece is an eye opener. I enjoyed it very much Thx
P.S. It would be interesting to see you do a piece about "freedom under consruction" What overhaul would it take to return our consciousness to this circular flow of life? Just food for thought
