A chapter in the book Poems from a Pensive Poet

Fear For the Country's Future

by BethShelby

I’m filled with feelings of frustration.
Cell calls show scammers on the phone.
Slick social sites seek to solicit,
through mind games, those who might be prone.

The world,which once was, weeps for wisdom.
What entity has drained mens' brains?
There once was time our senses steered us
to seek for proof, which truth retains.
No one believed unfounded fables,
spewed by unsavory lying lips.
Conspiracies were fancy fiction,
designed like gamblers' betting tips.
Whose henchman hijacked our common sense,
pushed poison causing mind decay;
conceived some chips for our computers,
created to take will away?
Division drives our friends far from us.
Divided nations always fall.
We need to reach for restoration,
before the final curtain call.

Hypnosis sometimes can be broken.
Effects of mind-drugs dissipate.
My fear is folks deny the future,
and sleep until it is too late.
