Grin And Grim: 5 Poems
Author: Colin Stewart
For those of us who had built a fence
around our minds increasingly dense
certain phobias became too immense
when the weather forecast made no sense!
Since the first time man was able to speak
he manipulated the language of the weak
and through the seduction of carefully crafted lies
it would always pay to advertise!
This planet was once covered by blue and green.
The most beautiful colors you've ever seen
but in outer space we will forever roam.
A garbage can has replaced our home.
The chameleon was able to change his face
and lead by example for the human race
in knowing the world can be a smaller place
when compassion acts as our saving grace!
The history of mankind was poorly led
when anger reared its ugly head
and negotiations broke down instead.
It's all been done and very little was said.
