The Fiery Furnace

By Da Poet   

Rivers of time
flow through my mind
flooded with pollution
from past decades benign

Battered and bruised
withered and torn
have weathered the storm
as life goes on

Tossed like a kite within a hurricane
dizzy from this cancerous confusion
who seeks a cure all for this mess
when many lives we keep on losing

Drowning in this cesspool of dismal desires
will most assuredly burn within the holy fire
I pray I’m gone before that day comes
for the day of Armageddon will have begun

Not to worry it won’t take long
not to fret it’s the same old song
a betting man’s bet
but the house will win

Forced to start all over again
that bush just keeps on burning
