Life, Love, and Longings
A Poem by BR Chitwood
Short, Tall, Lanky, All Sizes, All Colors,
Males, Females, Cats, Dogs, ‘Beasts of Prey’,
Gays, Straights, Old and Young, All Creatures,
Popes and paupers, have precise engineering
Which allow them to satisfy their needs For Love,
For Hate, For Expression – with different styles and Languages, of course.
There are many Specialists who make it their
Life’s work to journey through knowledge fields
To enlighten our minds with new information…
We are landing on the Moon, entering deeper into
Outer Space, Exploring Mars and other planets
With newer technology, giving the US public new
And promising information…
Here on Earth, we live with raw street violence,
Robberies, Murder, wanton terrorism in our cities,
And ‘Politics’ has turned a different scary shade of
Yellow, without sensible leadership, Marxist drivel
Occupying many college campuses…it cannot be
This writer alone seeing our country going to hell
in that ‘proverbial hand-basket’!
I am not the smartest ‘ape’ in this jungle but I need this moment to express my concern for our United States of America… In short, we need, badly need, new leadership to restore border law enforcement, to rid our political representatives from receiving big money from ‘K Street operatives. We need a person who cannot be bought…
