Deepening Darkness

Deepening Darkness
With the impending dawn
It did not lighten
Instead if improbable
to discern
Behold
the darkness
 did not
 dissipate
but
deepened
A darkness of a century
Flashes of lightning
ghostly muted shadows
spawning behind the clouds
 still darker
darker it yawned
Accumulating  residue
of a lingering hate
terror in the trenches
seeped into the marrow
resentments seeding conspiracies
perpetual vendettas
Sociopathic rage overflow
From a century into millennium
Hope flickered faithfully fearfully
But old habits die hard
darkness widens
expanding
strengthens
Sins
transferred
indoctrinated
from generation to generation
passing  the odious baton
crime strewn path
mutated m/o
The warrior mentality
Stoked and manipulated
Gun in bloody hand
Under a polluted flag
bombing innocent lands
gangsta’s of capitalism

My side is right
Yours is wrong
What crimes I commit
are absolved and blessed
Yours are never forgiven nor forgotten
so no one learns
but a damned thing
The darkness stays
This unwelcome guest
refusing to leave
Because the ism’s we embrace
Cling to our hearts like epoxy

Support the troops
but your not allowed
to ask
what they really do
or even worse
to see

Christmas charde 2015
mass killings
a hospital
schools
center for the disabled
calls for more bombing

Kill kill kill
war war war
like more evil
will not beget
just more evil

Thicker
spreads the darkness
stifling
suffocating
smothering
snuffing
Descending hate
wrath and fury
xenophobia
narcissism
selfishness
self righteous swagger
Utter disdain
for the suffering
beyond the clique
spiraling violence
evil feeding evil
violence breeding violence
The tipping point
 in paris
marketed and manipulated
by politics via the msm
for nefarious interests
very one-sided
of course
Yemen and beirut
swept under the rug
flushed
quickly
efficiently
quietly
ignored
marketed for patriotic propaganda
Devolution
a young species dissolving
rome
easter island
darkness
deepening
consuming
a global
pandemic

2016
a gloaming
that will not break
gloom
doom
unless…
