Neopoet Renga 5

Neopoet Renga 5

Ethnics soon sunder
our forefathers origin
tumult from terra

Gods fight for control north, south
new race emerge to power

Two sovereign one God
appear from the aftermath
the red white and blue

Blood stained forever now
but new ideals bring change

Irishman no stress
it's always dry in the pub
amused by panic

Guinness slow to settle down
Waits to quell the thirst of man

That all nations die
Not knowing our present
Stops all the worry

That we know of their past ways
Endeavor to correct wrongs

The Criminals take
altered apprentices now
not gripped by ethics

Only the thrill of the take
and the lifetime of training

The good push and pull
fighting 'til the last one falls
evil is not alone

A boxer stands in the way
he'll die before he gives ground

For in the flux of evil
men have risen to fight it
the world's nature true

Is the contest being fought
much as it has always been

Figures standing in darkness
breed thorns and nettle
amid promises and hope

Nostalgia the flower child
the family brought an end

This world runs on greed
black suited men know their name
no world left No gain

Grant us the reason to win
a new world for our children

You have a lovely day out there, I guess you are up with the sun this morning, as it is only 7-30am here in the UK.
Spring has finally arrived here and it is just beautiful, not that Winter is dull but Spring is for a new beginning. Take care, Yours as always Ian.T
PS:- I will keep a look out for number six, just wondered if the first five could be sorted and the best one or two readied incase Neo goes publishing ???

Yes I think that a good idea. Maybe everyone who are participants can pick which one or ones they think is best for possible publishing purpose by vote maybe. Just an idea. will be looking for all enrolled to share an opinion.

It's 2:35am here and spring is here to stay. Its a hot one already lol. As for first 5, I have all five saved in a document on my iPad so sorting them is not an issue. I'm going in for the night. Will check in tomorrow or Monday for feedback.

Since none is perfect and all fall prey to the imperfections of others, Renga 5 shows how we can come together and still create renga poems that work.
