Underneath The Landslide Of Time

Underneath the landslide of time
Music and poetry are buried
Do they dance still in the unsettled dust
Like two young graceful sisters

What has happened to our communities?
Where has all the pleasure gone?
Once I saw a community dancing together
As a child I joined in and felt good

But in my heart I felt a great loss
For they danced in a film on the T.V.
But warlords, economists, industrials and estate agents
Are dancing together on the witches Sabbath

Hear them chant their poetry of conquest
See them sacrifice a user-friendly face
As the metal buttons of their soldier’s uniforms
Fall from space into the abyss

Do you think I exaggerate things in this poem?
Do you think my expressions are over the top?
So tell me then where is the community now?
Does it live at the bottom of the garden with the fairies?

I am interested in multimedia work: songwriting, art, and creative writing. I have been involved also in theatre and music performances.
