Important Insignificance

The fox enveigled the cheese from the raven,

The child wheedles the cookies from parent,

The dog raises his puppy eyes and melts your heart.

The birds twitter and flutter coaxing attention,

The flower shyly moves its petals to receive

It’s caresses from the sun’s rays: nutrition!

The man wads his wallet to empress,

While the woman wears her war paint as not to depress;

The elderly lament their youth, and try to cajole

Their kin into longer and more frequent visits.

While the individual struggles to beguile themselves

Into believing they’re valued more than they are!

Ironically, they lack the vision to see their importance,

That drives jealousy in others in constant

Turmoil with themselves, for those lack your presence!

I'm a Canadian whose life has been interesting as I've lived in Developing countries and here. The contrast of law, order, and amenities available to us Canadians (which we take for granted, sometimes) to war torn civil wars is enormous. It leaves an influence upon the soul that cries out for justice. My poetry and writing reflect that and more.
