Somewhere a tree falls
No eyes to see nor ears hear
Somewhere waves lap on a far shore
No eyes to see nor ears hear

Somewhere a politician funds his pals
Few newspapers print the scale of cronyism
No eyes to see nor ears to hear
Somewhere the corrupt laugh

The game is rigged as it always is

Somewhere the right to protest is denied
By policy and a almost empty parliament vote
While they trumpet  democracy  for elites!
No eyes to see nor ears to hear
The pop of champagne and  size of bonuses

Somewhere a  covid patient’s life expires
Few eyes to see few ears to hear
A  last breath or single tear from deaths eyes
Somewhere a 1% pay rise is awarded
For handling the true horror

Somewhere a woman is killed
No eyes to see nor ears to hear
Her screams of terror
While secret pleasures are extracted

Somewhere the media reports
” he was not in uniform “
As if to lessen the collective truth
The Vileness of betrayal

Which all woman know well

Somewhere abuse is screamed
You’re useless! You’re useless!!
And no good in bed!!!
I think ..mothers day

Somewhere a sickening realisation strikes
We are not safe
Or in it together
But we will foot the bill.. again

Somewhere a tree falls
And still no eyes see nor ears hear
Somewhere  waves lap upon a far shore
No eyes to see nor ears to hear

The never ending cycle

Weight upon weight
Lie upon lie
Death upon death
Denial upon denial

Distraction plays it’s part

Somewhere a poem does its work
And lives beyond my thoughts
Creates it’s own intentions
May you have eyes to see and ears to hear

Somewhere. (C) james Mcsharry
