The Compulsion of Barbarity - by Bob Atkinson

The Compulsion
of Barbarity
(c)2015 Bob Atkinson

some see living in their dreams
a different world upon
which we rely
to carry ourselves toward dawn

some see peace and justice
as goals for which to rise
toward that institution
of derelict disguise

me, I find unusual
a soul who cannot see
simplicity of our germ of life
when we set it free

free to wander openly
beyond constraints of pride
free to send our children
toward the other side

free to search our feelings
for all who walk near us
and free to find sincerity
as a well defined plus

while jumping on those teachings
which never were that good
for faith in understanding
tells some what's absolute

absolutes have no place in life
leftovers from those times
when life carried less of value
than a pocket full of dimes
