Poetic Fictions

Life in sorrow

Young worlds are hungry
Universe cares not for their anger
Scientists make killing discovery
And health by 1990 is rare
Unpardonable leaders looting with the lorry
Lots of life in sorry
As death grips away in hurry
Royal fathers without people’s mandate
Enlarging our expression to look awry.
