TITLE (EDIT)
Living In The Eighties
DESCRIPTION
The eighties saw the dawn of a new impersonalism and surprisingly enough corresponded with the genesis of mass computing. At one time it was all about "making a fast buck" and social consciousness was something that seemed to be consigned to history's dustbin. This is a bitter poem about those times.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
I've been writing poetry and songs since the earliest times that I can remember. The current submission is one that makes the reader think and also, I hope, empathize with the subject.

Living In The Eighties
Martin Milner

Windows, gleaming port holes of destiny
Reflect our fleeting actions and the times
Crumbling stones where lap the waves of fleshy seas
Conceal the hatreds, soaking up the crimes.
Gray, battered towers raise aloft their ravaged forms
Where misery and bleakness intertwine
And snaking cars tear apart the bleeding dawns
But sunshine is no comfort to the blind.

Soft, flickering screens are viewpoints to the world
Where humming cables ensnare a generation
And in these technicolor lines, our lives unfurled
Endure this packaged, programmed mutilation.
And in the shadow of the rocket of the Final Irony
A stone-strewn path winding on before the nation
While braving the waves of this encroaching sea
In protest we find a true vocation.
