The Political Poet Honorable Mention


We clasp hands and shed clockwork tears
To watch our dreams appear on the screen
Ghetto defenders long for a new world deal
Urban memoirs overshadowed by naïve myths

Difficult borders governed by the demand of black gold
Quarantined beliefs, falsified by thought
Self preservation for the red, white and blue
Induced collapse of industrial prowess

New dawns are a human new life
Our modern world is our reshaping of the past
Secular generations always take first spot
Who you be next for the first morning star

by Stephen Bell
