CORAL DAYS ARE HERE AGAIN

 

Coral days are here again.

The blood red gauge is softened,

the cacophony of traffic …

dampened … and …

the dirt is swept …

out of sight.

 

What was bad, what was feared,

is wallpapered … right over.

The bizzare, and the downright weird,

given soft light …

the impending …

is re-timed.

 

Coral coloured spectacles

tinted the pink … of roses …

spread thinly over the masses

via TV …

while what passes …

stays unseen.

 

Stay put. Stay right where you are.

Your’s is to earn the Dollar;

give all your blood … for the soldier …

and the Banker …

Down-trod classes …

paying fees.

 

Bow down … genuflect the knees.

Exchange your pleasure … for guilt.

Tremble before your elected …

you know … your place!

But look upward …

there are stars!

Coral days are here again.

  1. Goodness Allen – this is enigmatic! I’ve read it several times and like it, but I don’t know why – and that is odd. I’ll let it sink in some more – maybe then?

  2. Another masterpiece, what should I say I cannot think after reading it, it is so damn good. I really liked this poem Allen, it is a tremendous piece of writing and knew of the great ones by you. I already passed your articles In my groups and everyone there was so impressed and everyone really liked them a lot, there are some who regularly read your writings just like me on your site. You are doing a great job and I think you are one the best content writers among those whom I follow.
