See them smiling

See them smiling
Daggers as teeth
In the lights of the cameras
See as they speak
Words that mean nothing
Their actions are true
Their finger on the button
Their boot on your throat
Men in suits
Playing God in man made thrones

Slowly you are lulled
Into a waking sleep
Running around tired
Ostrich and sheep
Pay your dues and your debts
As they sit in back rooms
Plotting to free you
From death that comes soon
In a cage of their making
Freedom cries from mortal wounds

Is that a typical dehumanization of authority or what! *clap* *clap* *clap* *clap*.

What’s the ostrich got to do with anything?

@beyond Ostrich put their heads in sand as a coping mechanism

@grosshaj,

See as they speak

Their boot on your throat

@grosshaj, It’s a nice poem (I especially like the last six lines), but it’s a turn-off when a writer keeps self-bumping with the same content
Also, there is no proof that ostriches actually bury their heads in the sand as a coping mechanism, or for any other reason. It’s been widely disproven

@rainclouder, gratitude, I wonder if you can see a tiny detail of difference between V1,2,3? We shall see, or should I say hear? ;) Happy Reading

@grosshaj, Ho, oh oh, I see what you did there. Very subtle changes, I noticed the first one but assumed you were just correcting a mistake.

Any more recent poetry to read? Or if you have an account on a poetry sharing site you could just link it to your profile and that would be a double thumbs up

@whowhatwhy, send me a picture

@rainclouder, I occasionally post here, but now that you mention it, exploring new places is a good idea too.
