The European Empire

door killea

When the time comes for a new endeavour
the time is never right, or schedules are misaligned
people's faces looking strange into a world so deranged
where most run around not knowing they are lost
in their dreams of a reality with or without a belief
their lives so normal, their values so cheap

And when it is too late for the masses to decide
having slept on the day of the devil's trial
another generation has to pay the price of rehabilitation
savage faces, fighters in the street, fighters using feet
the people hiding in the safety of their homes
in peaceful villages, their reality undisturbed

The fashion industry burns tons of unsold wares
every year bonfires of goods to the taxman's incinerators
food is dumped and subsidized, while hungry mouths shrivel with thirst
all the rich union's dirty little secrets, will they ever be exposed?
has anyone heard of redundancies in Brussels?
the European Empire, the Romans and the Germans fought for it

Like slaves, we handed it to the faceless powers that be on a plate.

    heavy on content so not as fluently in reading and interpretation, but very well put together

    ja, het is eigenlijk om beschaamd over te zijn,
    terwijl wij morsen met overschot hebben anderen de grootste armoede die je maar kan denken,
    knap protest-gedicht J.

    Should I be embarrassed now ? I can't change it even though I don't support it.

    Nice geschreven, maar denk je dat de wereld ooit veranderd?
    Ik geloof niet meer in Utopia.Heb ik eigenlijk nooit gedaan.
    De wereld is niet eerlijk.
