It's No Vacation..

It’s No Vacation….

How can I vacate from what’s in my head,
Jackanory moments we get now and then.
Dreams or words, I hope to leave in my stead,
they must be written, then read again and again.

For then the truth will always be known,
if I write honest about what I’ve seen.
The young people of today must get shown,
what has really happened, what has been.

The wealthy try to paint their own impression,
where they’re kind charitable, open and just.
But they’ve always created or used subversion,
even amongst themselves there can’t be trust.

Governments lay down to the power of coin,
they use the media and the lackeys for votes.
Then they invite those who are weak to join,
if not, sent them off to Australia in boats.

The part about Australia, also America I’ve read,
written by brave honest men with pen or quill.
Knowing disagreement might mean they’re head,
they’d still write the truth with an iron cast will.

There is so much to write I could never stop,
injustices I’ve witnessed against the poor.
Raw violence ordered from those at the top,
some we’re still seeing now that’s for sure.

Even against animals the wealthy have their will,
when hunting Fox or clubbing young Seals to death.
Nothing excites them like the scene of a fresh kill,
watching animal or man painfully take a last breath.

They beat down our warriors miners brave of heart,
as a relentless media pack back up those they fear.
Cops on greedy wages eager for trouble to start,
men watch their family’s starve an end draws near.

Using our police to protect their position,
no matter the cost to man, beast or mother earth.
They don’t care for scientists or the statistician,
or heed warnings from nature that gave them birth.

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Last few words: 
Can you stop writing what's in your head, i can't..
Editing stage: 


Totally agree! And many are coming to the realisation that something isn't right - hasn't beeen for too long, but their is an awakening spreading its beautiful essence!

The Light will find its way back into the collective Heart of Humanity.

Our next door neighbor, 76, is aware of the poisoning of our skies with chemtrails - she calls them sky scrapers!

The 99% are in charge - they have yet to realise it! It will happen - it is happening!

Roscoe. I will read this fine piece of writing again later!

You may enjoy this article:-

The Abolition of Work by Bob Black.

"Death" is nonsense: what is there to die?
"Life"? How could " life" "die"? That is a contradiction
in terms. Can "light" become "darkness"?
"Light" can only cease to be apparent

Wei Wu Wei

Thank you, and i loved the article. Regards Roscoe... PS Though it takes a bit of reading. lol..

Roscoe Llane,

Religion will rip your faith off, and return
for the mask of disbelief that's left.
