Caught Between – A poem

Caught Between

 

Between the profits and the greed

Between the money and the seed

Between the madness and the war

Between the illness and the sore

There’s no room.

 

Between the pillar and the post

Between the devil and the ghost

Between the hard place and the rock

Between the explosion and the shock

There’s no room

 

Between the funfair and the ride

Between the hunter and the pride

Between the arrow and the gun

Between the baiting and the fun

There’s no room

  1. Hey Opher, Namaste 🙂

    ‘Between’ is where all matter exists, resists, and persists.

    A very deep and perceptive poem: a wonderful distillation of thought. Great read!

    Namaste 🙂

  2. You are on fire! 😀

    Words have no master: we all apprentice 🙂

    As an aside – possibly because your waxing lyrically in the magical liminal ‘zone’ of deep thought – The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy gave the answer 42 as the ultimate answer to the question of life, the universe and everything. What is your answer – what words would you use to delineate such a monumental idea and impart that deep understanding to the rest of us?

    Namaste 🙂
