Recession

Post  Robert Anderson on Thu Sep 01 2011, 13:37

First topic message reminder :


Painting Recession By Robert Anderson, (c) Robert Anderson2011

Recession

I can’t stay within
I can’t stay within

I can’ t be living this thin
Where no-one can win
The worlds got to know
There is ice in the snow
Red rivers will flow

So where is the glow?
When a planets sun walks away?
Why can’t we live for today
And let them know
No, No !

So tell me why?

Why can’t we live our life away
And just forget our yesterday
And be as one

One sun, for everyone?

I can’t live this thin
I can’t live this thin
I won’t live in this bin

Where rodents breed kin
Kin bites my brother
He turns from a lover
Then tears from my mother
No care for the bother
As they kill one another

Why?

I seen all the world
Felt all the greed
I’ve cried at the hunger
And sensed all the need

So why?

Why must we be in disarray
I thought the Nazis were away
And fiddlers played without the stay
Of yesterday

Our way?

I can’t stay within
I can’t live this thin

In original sin?

© Robert Anderson 2011

Modern sentiment written with truthful images in a rather sad piece. it seems, this sentiment is all that is left for the meek. I find no adjectives that would express the sorrow I felt as i read nor describe the images seen. Well done, my man, well done.

Teresa, I remember back sitting in your backseat, Dow driving us home from the Art Festival. I remember you laying it all out so simply for me, and why you foresaw trouble if Obama got into office. It's much worse than we first thought . . .
