Down

    Down

        Down

the rain falls

big tears

but

to whom do they

belong to?

 

Down

   Down

       Down

come the lightnings

and the thunders

bringing terror to

the children

 

Down

   Down

      Down

come the tears attacking people

that dart

in and out

of temporary shelters.

 

Down

  Down

     Down

come the tears

rain adds

to the depression

of a child's mother

alone in the world.

 

Down

  Down

     Down

depression settling in

making homes in the downward

spiral of economy.

 

Down

  Down

      Down

come the politics

and education

and value of a dollar

 

Down

  Down

     Down

go the number

of techers

willing to teach

a wave of children

that don't want to be taught

 

Down

  Down

    Down

goes the socioeconomic allies

that try to

believe us

they dwindle to few

because we forgot strength

 

Down

  Down

     Down

go the memories of what

life waslike

without electronics

lost in convinience
 

Down

  Down

    Down

go the readers

and carers

and people of old

and the knowers

and the believers

 

Down

  Down

    Down

goes the knowledge

of a nation

once great

tourist attraction

now so cold, like ice

 

Down

  Down

     Down

politians promise

what ensure

the decline neckline

of the economy

 

Down

  Down

    Down

goes what

we call great

so what

now?

what have we

been reading?

 

Down

   Down

      Down

is the only direction

which was

the longest running democracy

is now the

longest running fool.

 

Down

  Down

    Down

we are hooked to

electronics

like fish

but why

do we not fight?
