The Politician’s Apology

In response to Scott’s Daily Prompt, Shoulda, coulda, woulda

Shoulda done more
Coulda done more
Would have done more
There was this 
And there was that
We did our best
Under the circumstances
We did
Better than them
Better than we thought
We apologise
For earth we left you
We enjoyed it while we could
So now you can’t

Blind (Etheree)

are blind
to the truth
Suffering goes on
And we deny it all
Unable to find a way
Through the maze of our modern lives
To a place where we can be ourselves
And hold out that hand that helps our neighbour

Instead we clench our hand in a tight fist
Holding tight onto what we have gained
Not seeing what we are losing
What slips away from our grasp
Diminishing our souls
Focused on our goals
With such passion
That we are
