New Reality

Day Three of NaPoWriMo.*

My offering:

New Reality

I despise the vile duplicity,
the partisan stupidity,
the rank and file idiocy that
purports to be our polity.

I’m aching for tranquility,
serenity, simplicity,
stability, integrity,
sincerity, morality.

I’ll cease my lame profanities,
I’ll work to restore sanity,
take every opportunity
to dignify humanity.

I’ll learn to live sustainably;
this planet my new deity.
I’ll protect its viability
from human greed and vanity.

I do not know my destiny.
Will I go down in infamy
or die in anonymity?
It matters not one whit to me.

I’ll fight the fight tenaciously
with love and light and empathy.
The world will right inequity,
our fate lies in our probity.


*National Poetry Writing Month, Day Three
I didn’t stay completely true to today’s prompt, except for the part that said, “try to play as much with sound as possible, repeating  sounds and echoing back to others using… rhyming and similar words.”
