‘Our Garden’ by Steve’s Poetry

Butterflies roam
Vanishing atrocities in
A lavish garden

Hiding eerie things
With their little butter wings
Ignored in fly disguise

Skies of sorrow
Industrial darkening
Suffocating mankind

The Man washes brain
Consuming his own meat
Smiling

Once upon a site
Liberal thoughts caged in a
Collapse caused by crude

Evil never stops
War stricken day and age
Taken for granted

We go about life
Doctoring the vile truth
Of the garden’s end
