I can No Longer Sing

I can No Longer Sing

I can no longer sing.

                The clouds fill my dreams

                                With wet clammy fingers.

I can no longer play.

                The darkness fills my days

                                With inky swirling pools.

I can no longer vote.

                The deceit poisons my wells

                                With tendrils of greed.

In these clammy, dark days

                We have to hang on to our dreams

                                Before the deceit of others

                                                Poisons our life-giving wells.

You lose your faith in human beings.

Trump, Johnson, Oban, Bolsonaro, Modi, Netanyahu, Meloni, Farage, Erdogan, Putin, Xi and a host of others. Why do we humans become attracted to these  blatant narcissists and psychopaths, intent on grasping power and robbing us?

I'd like to hear from you...
