Lesson #1—Food for thought current US UK Politics

Another poem from my 1997 collection that could be food for thought about the current politics in UK and US .

 

Society creates the monsters
Fear and ignorance give them faces
We build them with our thoughts
Arming them with swords and maces
Their powers are what we give them
Then we build ourselves no shield
We all become the victims
Of the powers our monsters wield
Only ourselves can be the army
To defeat the beasts we make
We build them with our minds
Then their powers our minds must take

Dr. Donald Ryles copyright 1997
