Poetry By Jambo Stewart

 

You hate me because I’m your ugly reflection
I hate you because you hate yourself
Nuclear arms for political ‘correction’
Third world starves, The First encourages poor health
Your good deeds benefit you and you only
Your selfish deeds affect all others
Ethical consumerism is a blatant phoney
While toxic chemical gas smothers
You cannot resolve your self-hate
For others like me exist
Together we will all create
The means to resist
And reverse the consequences
Of our presence on this Earth
Then help work on mending fences
Forming bonds and connections, to give birth
To a brand new time
Free from hate and sorrow
Sounds of freedom will chime
Forever in the new tomorrow
The problem as I see it
Is replacing hate with love
Once this depressing pile of shit
Is given the final shove.
