Libya; obey

.

I walked for miles ending at a camp

My legs throbbing with pain from all the cramp

The sun scolded me with its piercing rays

Nothing could ever keep that heat at bay

Others famished, spread all around the place

What did we do, what was our mistake

Looking for some help, water for my thirst

I came across some men, seemed nice at first

After time on the road, hard to give trust

All want something in return, that’s a must

One held out a bottle inviting me

I begged on the dirt, I was so thirsty

Arms stretched out clasping the bottle so dear

I felt a blow, ringing now in my ears

As I fell to the ground, helpless I lay

I closed shut my eyes, I could only pray

They would do as they pleased, never enough

They would laugh and snigger, always so rough

No one ever helped or came to my aid

I would be killed if I didn’t obey

Reaching for the water, just before me

Yanked by one of them, back up to my feet

He looked at me, with his gold teeth smile

His breath was putrid, it smelt just vile

Placing a collar, I tried to resist

Showing me his knife, before a small kiss

Led away like a dog, I dared not scream

I wished I could wake up from this bad dream

What was next for me, pissing myself

I wish I were dead, that’s what I felt

Burn

.

I hope you suffer

For what you’ve done

You’ve ruined my life

Before it’s begun

And for what this act?

To mark me for life?

Am I not good enough?

To be someone’s wife?

You’re a coward

You burned my face

You deformed me

Turned my skin to waste

I hope you rot

And you feel guilt inside

I will recover

I will live my life

Ivory and gleam

Drinking at the waterhole

Tranquil as can be

Along came a hunter

Wanting some ivory

Watching patiently

Saw him with his gun

Positioning himself

Gleaming in the sun

Silence before gunfire

Then the animals roared

The poor defenseless hunter

Lay dead on the floor

Never mind

.

Never mind

It’s not that bad

No need to be sad

Be a little rad

Never mind

Life goes on

You could sing a song

Or just sing along

Never mind

No regrets

Place your bets

Don’t get wet

Never mind

It’s dark in there

You must beware

I hope you don’t scare

Never mind

You didn’t mean it

Not even a little bit

Just in the shit

Never mind

He’ll get up

With a bit of luck

Ok, maybe you’re fucked

Run for cover

.

What is that noise?

Choppers on approach

Panic stricken

Take cover like a roach

.

Overhead now,

hovering still

That dirty beast

Contemplating the kill

.

There it goes

That dark heavy mass

See it plummet to the ground

What a blast!

.

It leaves its chaos

As it flies away

Screams, yelling

Where the kids normally play

.

Deafening numbness

Everything so loud

Smell of chlorine

Poisonous cloud

.

People stumbling

Gasping for air

Vomiting violently

People scared

.

I cannot breath

Coughing uncontrollably

Grating at my eyes

Collapsing fatally….

Is this love?

.

Perfection may never come

Maybe it does not exist

The most important thing in love

Is knowing love exists

.

Pass time together

No matter what you do

Talk often and listen too

Let the warmth shine through

.

Watch the sunset

Feel the rays warm your skin

Take a deep breath

Let that oxygen in

.

Picnic in the park

Glass of wine a treat

Look into her eyes

Like the first ever meet

.

A stroll in the park

Hand in hand sheer bliss

Hours pass by walking

Finished by a single kiss

.

Let your heart take flight

Forget insecurities passed

Embrace that chance given

And know it will be the last

.

Independence

.

Independence, we all want it

Not for some not one bit

What a mess that we are all in

Politics to decide who will win

At the end of the day it’s money that counts

Keep or kick is how the countries bounce

Brexit they want out and have to pay through the nose

That is politics and the way that it goes

Catalan want out, Spain reject all

Maybe without them the economy would fall

Then all falls to war, crazy civil mess

All in the name of independence no less!

To be harassed #metoo

.

You know what you need to do

If you want to succeed

Succumb to me

And my sexual greed

I will make you famous

Do what I ask

Fulfill my pleasures

That is your task

Look at you

So innocent and young

Just a little massage

Let’s have some fun

The world is such a disgusting place

That I will abuse

My place of money and power 

Until you will accuse

That is years down the line

I have all the time I need

You are nothing for the moment

I will make you bleed

In jail

In jail

Rotting soul

Sinned society

Achieved your goal

Years go by

Serving time 

Have you regrets?

For your crime?

What did you do?

Are you proud?

Do you crave it?

To shout it aloud

Did you hurt someone?

Someone you love?

Are you missed?

Now that you’re judged

Ghost town

Ghost town

Where are they?

Are the kids

Coming out to play?

All built up

Deserted now

All that’s left

Is to bring the plough

Politics gone mad

Shops, businesses gone

Wealth dried up

Everything is wrong
