Dystopianna

How can I  sing and natter
about flowers that bloom in the spring – trala
when what matters matters so matteringly ?

The shattering of the constitution of my birthland –
dillusional dichotomy of security versus  human rights

What do the benighted believe the boys are sent
to risk their lives for if not those very rights?

But, of course,  the deeper truth is that they are not dying –
they are killing indiscriminately women and children
as in the first books of the bible not even for god –

Inocence and innocents slaughtered wholesale
while those who serve the highest truths –
the whistleblowers – are indicted as traitors.

No, the flowers that bloom in the spring
of late… do not solace my withering spirit

Why? Why? My mind can’t help
but dwell upon it this mayhem I refuse
to turn into a sonnet
