rhetoric

a poem by Leif Phillips, Australia - poetry writer, author, poet

Sadness
trailing through the madness
children bled of their souls
by the rhetoric of trolls
while themselves, they bless...

gun control wanes
fear leaves its yellow stains
on the rhetoric of guess
disowning the mess
of human sorrow and remains...

Christmas comes and goes
spring thaws the winter snows
the world sees your lie
you live as you die
a garden where murder grows...

time will eventually lay waste
to all words in their haste
claiming all eternity and light
the wrong silent with the right
children saved from pure distaste...
