 Contemporary poetry by Dan Donlan


Once knew a man
Who thought it unmanly
to cry
Then Mom died
It was a year to the day
I sat in my room and cried
Wife closed the door
When Sis died
The tears I could not hide
Today I don't hold the tears inside
the pain I feel for America
no longer can be denied
Legal drugs and the dark side
Safe haven for Heroin overdose
Where is the safe haven for us?
As the Politicians in plain sight hide
The Devil or the Lord on which side
For our children think drugs are safe to be tried
There is a war going on between good and evil
For every Marijuana store that opens
There are more forests on fire
The rain is coming down the rivers rising
Soon the filthy rich well be down sizing
The Devils lies no longer so mesmerizing
