Daily missive for Friday the 13th of January.~by Peter Forster



Daily missive for Friday the 13th of January.

Does anybody know
The purpose
To their movement
When mine is so random
As to defeat all logic.
With intentionality
Comes insight
How then are so few aware
Of the consequence
Of action
The significance
Of acceptance
The implication
Of blind ignorance
Over tolerance
Or passive resistance.
What is truth
No more than perception
When so many
Lies are told
To placate the casual
Who determines
What is right
When with riches
Comes power
And the reasoned voice
Of protest silenced
As demonstrating
The politics of envy
And not concern
For humankind.
How can so many
Be short changed
By so few
And yet doff a cap
To their own demise
With the promise of
A better life
That will never come.
What is trust
When following leads nowhere
The predictability
Of disappointment
The only constant.
And if nobody knows
Their own way
Then in all conscience
We are all of us
