STORM & STRESS in AMERICA
* * * Winner of "EDITOR'S CHOICE AWARD" - Poetry.Com 2003 * * *

Like a love affair ended
Or Santa exposed
In this land where juveniles rule.

Where strings of a puppet
Pulled by Greed
Makes a man feel like a fool.

Justice prevailed in days of yore
Fresh and honest
As Spring.

Just before leaving the nest
I heard
The Mother Bird beautifully sing.

Harsh and unfair the World outside
Cold and rough
Her Hand.

Dog eat dog the lesson learned
Survival of the fittest
In the Land.

Goodbye forever, you Land of Oz
Kindness and Love
Farewell!

Endure no more
An orphan’s life
Welcome to the depths of Hell!
