“Sycophant leaders
Platitudes that promise Peace
Truth basis impasse

Huddled aides parlay
Negotiate lives and turf
Gain-loss bartering

Politics charade
Plausibility vagueness
Trust fades to despair

Power ploys abound
Humanity pervasion
Sovereignty abuse

Failed integrity
Fading role of government
Relevance demise”

  1. Thought provoking Robert. I think we are in a dangerous time in our history, the world and in my mind it includes the US, many causes for the root of the many problems – as a world society maybe it’s time we all stepped back and really take an assessment of what has happened, is happening and what we don’t want to happen in the future. Very powerful segments in your writing.


    • Yes, the assessment is needed, but many people want to avoid it. I think we need to populate the world with more artists. Maybe would see a little more balance in the system 😉 Thank you, Mary
