Politics drives forward

Politics drives forwards
In slow motion
Through all that we build
Taking time to bury
What grows from the garden

Some kind of shadow
In man
Some kind of answer
To his godlessness
Some kind of carrier
Of the nations
Into the lava of destiny

Politics drives forward
Over every structure
Over every natural plan
That comes to the mind
Of people
That form a line
Behind it
Like dead convicts
Stripped naked of life

Politics drives forward
The tractor
That drives thru the forest
The tank
That drives thru the buildings
With war and destruction
Politics drives on

And in the end
Its’ greatest achievement
Is to plant a flag on the moon

Politics in a normal world
Is choice
Between teams

Is building a team
Of indestructible power
This is its
Ultimate aim
This is its challenge

There was
The war to end all wars
But evil persisted
In the arms that had held guns
That had felt the vibration of rounds
That had saw the flowers of blood

It was the beginning, not the end
The end is yet to come

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