Pledge
poetic scribble by Bob Axell 2007

 

Pledge alliegance
To this dreadful state
This world we live in
Wretched with painful hate

All we see
Are regretful rainy days
We stay inside our layers
When we should go out and play

Pledge alliegance
Become an armless slave
A soldier blessed
With the hunger they crave

A fortorn world
Is what they to me gave
Now I search for answers
And tried to save

What wasn't already
Lost in the flood
What hadn't been washed
Away by the mud

A silver necklace
Is all I can find
So I sit in the dark
And hear my teeth grind

An eerie silence
Approaches from behind
We tread - on fragile and fearful ground
A silver necklace - was all I found.
