Drowning in a Swamp of Decadence


Do you feel like you’re drowning
in a swamp of decadence
polluted with lies, hypocrisy
and the slimy rot of injustice?

You are.
And you will go under
stop crying for help
stop playing the victim
stop feeling sorry for yourself
stop denying your greatness
follow the song in your heart
written in the blood, sweat,
laughter and embraces
of our ancestors
in the script of our DNA.
It’s a simple song
of life and love
and the love of life
to the beat of the pulse of humanity.
The force of love has no other purpose.
Our group, race, religion, sex, nationality
by itself
defeat the forces of greed,
the masters of inequality,
the rulers of the swamp,
the 1%.
As long as we are fighting among ourselves,
neglecting our humanity
– insulting our souls –
we will remain the pawns,
subjects, serfs and slaves
– the commodities –
of the 1%.
united in respect,
determination, solidarity and necessity
we can open the heart of heaven
and allow its light
to burn away this tiny ulcer
and dry up the swamp.
The light will then
warm our smiles of calm enthusiasm
as we build a global garden
where birdsongs decorate our happiness.



“Race is spice in the stew of humanity.
The racist’s diet is not only tasteless
it has no fiber for the gut
or nourishment for the soul.”

    Answers blindly overlooked by those needing them most. Am still overwhelmed by your talent to expose the darkest reality via use of profound poesy. Thank you; write on, please.
