Billy Harfosh                   


This life is beginning to represent something raw and unchanged

The constant rudeness the violence and the collisions

Disease and death-Love and Hate

Tears-and for what?

Where is the endgame

When does she flat line

Torn apart families

Rabid dogs bite innocent children

The ice caps melt and the saints die off

Gloom darkens as the big wave lingers

Politicians politely pollute

Teachers teach what they are taught

The ignorant locomotive roars on

Living and breathing through these lungs

We are all at the mercy of our next breath

Lets hope this is all just an optical
