In The Dark

N THE DARK

Drunk and Lost - weary and cold,
He stumbled through the ditches,
Fell down an embankment in the dark;

Not aware of where he was,
the explosions kept ripping his ear drums,
the fear grew deeper,
the terror grew worse;
He screamed for help but no one was there;
In desperation and weariness, he finally collapsed;

Later, much Later, he woke drowsy and confused;
But he knew what had happened…Another blackout, another nightmare,
the alcohol did not save him from the war,
the war that continued in his mind for 47 years;

More wars have come and gone,
But they all blend together; for the weary veteran
In the dark.

Meanwhile,the politician.............

We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
