Flying Bricks

There is a divisive brick wall

That stands harsh and tall

To stop people breaking their fall

Then the leaders in ivory towers

Ceased talking about peace and flowers

And hurled bricks into that sandy strip

One brick after another brick

Flew from one side to the other

Crashing innocent children and mothers

Flying bricks crumbling to dust

Creating dirty clouds of mistrust

The walls of Babylon fall again

As brick upon brick adds to the strain

Brick upon brick fills the bloody drains

Brick upon brick kills and maims

G'day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.

    1. The news of continual conflict saddens me greatly .. here we are in the middle of a world wide pandemic. .. and there there are .. fighting, killing, and maiming. .. over ancient ghosts who all live in the shadows of Jerusalem. .. still carrying the same old dusty bricks from eons ago … 🌏😢😢

    1. With the present situation of a horrific world wide pandemic … I find the warring nations conflict at stage in time to be totally selfish and beyond my comprehension ….
