Promised Land

Promised Land short poem

Photo by MatHampson

I wish I could escape
to that promised land
Far away from this moribund moonscape
& this callous concert grand.

Where life is sweet like cherry wine
& rivers wash away all the grime
Where green meadows sway & swing
when the sparrows sing in the spring.

So in this race against time
I’ll ride & roar
On that thunder road
& step it out over the line.

Just to reach that Promised land
I’ll rumble across this wasteland.

Too many die every moment around us. Not wounded fatally though, but maimed and left to lurch and die. Too many ‘uv us’re paralysed enough to act. Hamletian syndrome. Too many tongues burnt on pyres fuelling a feudal society. Too
