A Hope For People - A to Z Challenge

A Hope For People – A to Z Challenge

 

There was a hope in the eyes

For society and people in the sixties

 

Government threw gold and silver

Schemes sugar coated to appease

 

People’s eye was full of stars like

Lovers who are blind by the night

 

The perfume of jobs, growth, globalization

Was the scent people grew up to

 

There were no paints on the walls

But they were polished and shone

 

The government threw plenty of rainbows

And people grew decades into it

 

Now, the scent is flavored and sugar coated

With GDP, NPAs, and politically-motivated discourse

 

The walls stand marvelously painted exteriorly

The interior stands tarnished and dark

 

The perfume reeks of a set-up for

Votes, numbers, and ground to play

 

With people’s aspirations and hopes

As they lie in an earthly-scented wash of dust
