Ruined… by Jeffrey Williams

 

RUINED

its a game of winner takes all
only the clear winner is greed
the desire to want for little sacrifice
the need to have without earning
no its not the only way
it is the easiest way
its how the world forms each day
lifting one to the top
while crushing those below
not too concerned with the damage
collateral or otherwise
its hope without the eternal
its summer without the fall
the ruins have been ruined
with nothing to show at all

 

Jeffrey has been writing since 1996. He was stuck indoors one hot summer day with the heat index so high the mayor of his city requested everyone remain inside. He was bored, watched the Golden Girls and so it began.
