Lives Under Siege

written by: Anne G



Tumultuous upheaval

lives under siege

Deliberate disturbance

psychosis en masse

Incessant diversion

reality skewed

Emotional crisis

societal doom

Acrimonious speech

bitterness spurred

Contentious contention

vision obscured

Rancorous disease

population engaged

Obliteration of love

agenda - gangrene

Why write?
I write because I am:
Driven to distraction by the inequities of the society in which we live.
Motivated by cruelty, abuse, ignorance and indifference.
My intention: To poke, prod and provoke!
"Moderation is a fatal thing. Nothing succeeds like excess." - Oscar Wilde
