Are We Condemned?


while history repeats itself

and the band plays on

will we never learn

that power does corrupt absolutely

and that we are partly responsible

as we trade one evil for another

hoping for changes that never come

for as the charlatans reap all the benefits

they reward themselves for a job well-done

yet again they try to fool us

causing us to in-fight

and we, the great unwashed writhing humanity are left with

what’s left


but our voice

which must be heard

for the underlying seething of the masses has power

if we refuse to settle for the way things are

we must unite

to fight

for what is right

About Evie Garone

I am an outspoken woman with independent views of the world. I am spiritual but also realistic. I've successfully raised two men who I've sent off to college and am now following my love of the arts, including painting, drawing and writing. Thus, two blogs, two books I sporadically work on, voracious reading, among other loves keep me busy.
