Originally published on July 9, 2012 in Poetry

This is a thing that I have written, I consider it a good thing.

The grass is always greener,
the meat is always leaner,
the blades are always keener,
the streets are always meaner.

The lies are sometimes truer,
the trier is ne'er a doer,
the slaves are walking free,
the blind have learnt to see.

The stories can't be told,
the young are getting old,
the dead are waking up,
the condemned spill the cup.

The nightmares doom the dreamer,
the fool kills the inbetweener,
the silence subdues the screamer,
the end is getting nearer.

Sounds a bit Dylan-ish to me. Think you may be right (last line).

Enjoyed (best if read out loud).

Well done, it fits with our current times.

I am quite pleased with it, but the rhyming is a bit awkward in a few places.
