L. B. Mek

of Malachite awareness


colours trend like everything else

fashion struts its podium assertions

and those exploited stitching fingers

bleed, to dye garments crimson

our newly minted ‘catwalk favourite’

perpetuated by en vogue magazine’s

wilful incredulity of criminal ignorance

    if ever there was a reason to write a dedication, you just hit upon that reason .. it is almost impossible to comprehend how in the 21st century so many individuals lost their lives & as many again were injured through no fault of their own but through the greed of others maybe and the age old habit of cutting corners to make a few cents more ......................

      what we perpetuate, in the name of greed
      generation after wasted, generation...
      Thank you for giving voice to the disdain
      I failed to capture in my scribbled effort
      in your impassioned comment, dear Poet

      It’s not only ‘an eye for an eye’ that makes the whole world blind, it’s also greed that makes us oblivious and blinds us to reality. A superb post indeed.

      Brilliant Mek.

      • L. B. Mek

        ah my kind hearted friend
        once more you've graced me
        with your generous support
        humbly, I thank you!

      • Jerry Reynolds

        Well done, L.B.
        We are loaded with "criminal ignorance" here.

        • L. B. Mek

          thank you Jerry
          yes, if the universe had a court
          many would have to face that charge,
          when we can google search
          our path in life, there's little defence
          for the indifference, so many of us
          cocoon our existence within, ever day...

        • Rozina

          Yes so much greed and injustice abound. Thank you for sharing.

          • L. B. Mek

            thank you for reading

                With a mind like yours how could I not, plus deep inside I want society to jump overboard!
