    Our world has come asunder at a New World pace

    Fluoridated water leaves a bitter taste

    Parties over there diss'n Medicare

    Party right here for ObamaCare

    Ill at ease under seize

    is there no cure for

    said disease...



    The Wrath of God on our case

    Earth objects to nuclear waste

    Food nightmares cupboards bare

    The drug of choice illegal here, yeah ~

    Strangely, Brother Poet 1poetsought, this piece made me feel hopeful.

    To process your poem for publication we need the following:

    1. A photo of you
    2. A brief bio of you (1 or 2 paragraphs)
    3. A blurb about the poem. Just a brief paragraph about what you were
    thinking/feeling when you wrote the poem or pertinent background
    information about the subject of the poem. Something like that.

    Please email this information to [email protected]

    Thanks,
