Glittering Fences


A planet run by certificates,

Approval of the hierarchy,

Nods from the one who officiates,

And a smile from the finest lady.

As the sweaty digs their worms underground,

Cruising the rivers are bundles of money,

Baited by hands covered in fancy,

Laughing all around.

What a pleasing tune of evolution they promise,

A silvery future it beholds,

Words that endear our senses,

Alluring us into their glittering fences.

When we think of a universe the noblesse could brand;

They serenity they could create,

It metamorphoses into papers on fire,

Shredding its dust among our caskets.

    1. True. I notice that someone needs to hold a bachelor’s, or doctor’s degree first before one can be heard. The society leans on these “leaders” too much, forgetting people with full potentials in the lower class. When in truth the silent tend to be more sensible than those who blab all the time.

      And thank you, Tejas. I’m glad you enjoyed reading it.
