Grass Roots

a poem by william andrews, Greece

Grass Roots
Grass roots
stopped growing
a long time ago
when people
stopped thinking
when people
got tired

Of manning the gates
of a real Democracy

Believing
in sad excuses
of broken promises
full of forked tongue
intent

No longer willing
to make the sacrifices
to man the gates

Believing the odd
one man band
can make a change

To stop
all the things
that should not be

Grass roots
stopped growing
a long time ago
when people
stopped thinking
what should not be so

Conveniently
only sacrificing
what they refuse
to imagine
to get to know

the future
of their children
and the slow painfull
not yet
fully felt
Death

of freedom
