Poetry – No Time To Cry

No Time To Cry

In this plastic world of phony toys

Pink fairy dresses and guns for the boys.

With concrete monuments into the sky,

Artificial lawns – there is no time to cry.

We’re told we’re all worth it

As they batter us with goods

That you can all be king

In your neighbourhoods.

You can join the army

Be sent abroad to die

But they’ll distract you from asking

So you never question why.

In this plastic world of phony toys

Pink fairy dresses and guns for the boys.

With concrete monuments into the sky,

Artificial lawns – there is no time to cry.

In this meaningless sterility

You can fester away

Counting the days

To your next pay day.

In a pointless existence

You can drink yourself to death.

As long as you don’t question

Why you’re drawing your breath.

In this plastic world of phony toys

Pink fairy dresses and guns for the boys.

With concrete monuments into the sky,

Artificial lawns – there is no time to cry.

They’ll send you to the mosque

To be brainwashed and filled

With stories of afterlives

With dreams all fulfilled.

But the reality is

That we’re all being used.

It’s all power and money

As the world is abused.

In this plastic world of phony toys

Pink fairy dresses and guns for the boys.

With concrete monuments into the sky,

Artificial lawns – there is no time to cry.

Opher – 25.3.2021

As the whole world is dismantled day by day, and we are manipulated and controlled by lying politicians and religious leaders, the future is looking bleak.

The power resides in those with the wealth and power. They promise us the earth and an afterlife in order to keep us buying so they can become ever richer!

The whole world is a playground for some and hell for others.

The natural world is being decimated for short-term gain creating a plastic universe and barren deserts.

It is some future they offer us.

In a world full of trivia there is no place for real emotions.

I'd like to hear from you...
