    Halloween walks everyday of our lives.
    Grim Reaper at my door.
    Sixty seconds of everyday.
    Twenty four hours a day seven days a week.

    When the senators stabbed Caesar.
    They didn’t commit a crime.
    They all received a pardon all the people looked away.
    They didn’t go to jail that day.
    The didn’t serve any time.

    Isn’t it something we experience to day?
    Our elected officials getting away.

    Lives allowed to rot and decay.
    With murder as our daily power sway.

    Their influence over us in every way.
    Halloween walks everyday.

    Disaster happens we continue on.
    Time and money trying to fix the wrong.
    It isn’t enough to bring things back.
    To make the pain stop hurting front to back.
    It takes a toll on our health.

    Those politicians taking our wealth.
    We swore an oath to live a life.
    Obey the law and cause no strife.
    They live above this profane oath.
    They promise and pledge and solemnly swear.
    To give us back our dignity there.

    It’s a legal oath.

    One they don’t uphold.

    Those elected officials are really bold.
    Taking us for granted.
    Thinking we are dumb.
    Thinking we need to have them crush
    our lives into a crumb.

    Food for flies to take.
    Run our lives into a ditch.

    Damp and wet saliva trips.
    Never kissing the right one yet.

    Easily done ignored.
    Smiling at those who are trapped in their plan.
    Sweeping all others from the land.
    With the blessing of those demon men.

    We swallow what they do.
    We carry on making it thru.
    These convoluted lives were taken thru
    and we are really graciously gallantly screwed.

    Depression touching young.
    Sicking through all parts of the body.
    Can't breath without a iron lung.

    Poison water.
    Crime from their hands.
    Police stomping small dissent
    of those who raise a hand.

    Don't ask me any questions.
    And I tell you no big lie.

    Were in control.
    You gave your soul.
    To those who swore to try.

    To improve your life.
    To do those things to take
    the burden off your chest.

    I think their having a party there.
    Because the lions aren’t at rest.

    Let the games begin.
    Arenas style gladiators
    fighting and never win.

    Not knowing why we against each other.
    Never stopping to wonder why
    we feel the need to kill another.

    Calling names of your sister and brothers.
    Its a madding fight to survive.

    It’s a Caesar type of plan.

    Very timely and on point scribe. If the polititians could possibly give us their all, it still won't even be close to giving us back all that has been lost. But at least, it would be a start. The thought of our present day Caesar ruling for four more years...Quite a scary thought indeed.

    SCARY TRUTH

    :qqb025:

    iT'S THAT sCARY tIME aGAIN

    Halloween permeates our existence in the very games we play.
    They take our lives and self-esteem
    With the very games
    Those are played.
    Like football, any exploitation.
    Creating things from greed to pain.
    The wars
    The support even slavery
    Is part of the scary game?

    Rewards are given when you over power another.
    No rewards for doing well.
    Since the beginning of time
    All war and strife has plagued the straight and good.

    The best selling books are about power.
    It tells how to take and exploit.
    It talks about taking credit for another’s hard efforts.

    It tells you what you should do
    To over take your peers and friends.
    Best seller on the market and the critics shout and cheer.

    Power over another created slavery death and crime.
    The reason they crucified Jesus is the same sick state of mind.

    Halloween should be outlawed.
    It has turned so grey and bleak.
    Those out here hurting others
    Dressed in costumes they call suits.

    Fires burning cities on the night set aside for death.
    Tainted candy for the children
    Hurt the spirit, nothing’s left.

    See the pain we have today is caused by power over another.
    Win that game, take his future and life.
    Crush competition they all shriek.

    Divide Africa, and this entire world.
    No country, land is free
    Of the same scary Halloween stance we see in our own streets.

    Some unfortunately are dangerous when given any semblance of power, and lethal when they are chock full of it. Yes, how scary indeed poet.
