    Poem Commentary

    A reality .. I never want to see ...

    Fountains Of Flame

    The pressure increases - - Another notch in the belt,
    With the tension mounting, North, East, West and South.
    Major countries cut-off all supply and demand,
    In a state of panic - - Our time is at hand!

    On the verge of destruction - - Warning systems alert, 
    Peace Talks held in anger only make matters worse.
    Negotiations default and conflicts still persist,
    All hope of Peace is abandoned - - It no longer exists!

    What does it matter who's at fault?
    What does it matter?
    What does it matter who's to blame?
    What does it matter?
    What does it matter - Does it matter at all?
    When our Future's consumed in Fountains of Flame!

    Amidst the smell of death - - the stench of war,
    The number of dead still remains unsure.
    Defenses are weakened - Our Future's at stake,
    Just how much more will we be able to take?!

    I was talking to another soldier- one night in the bar,
    and he said . . .
    "Man, I can't believe they've let it come this far!
    They say that ...History repeats itself,
    But, Hell - This time no one wins!
    We'll all become the losers- come the end, my friend!!"

    And just then ..over the airwaves - a tone can be heard!
    With destiny awaiting the FINAL WORD!
    All broadcasts are ceased for a Special Report,
    The button's been pushed - Our time is cut short!!!

    What does it matter who's at fault?
    What does it matter?
    What does it matter who's to blame?
    What does it matter?
    What does it matter - Does it matter at all?
    When our Future's consumed in Fountains of Flame!

    Indeed, this is one reality nobody wants to see. I like the way the poet expressed himself on this reality.

    I remember as kids we would do drills in school in the hall way and cover our heads . Are we truly safe from this threat no I think not . Great poem Ken thanks Marie



    I remember the drills as well ... I wrote this song a long time ago as well. I think it's one that has stood the test of time. The threat is so real with all the tyrants in the world - then and now. Thanks again, Ken

    Grito commented on Fountains Of Flame


    Wow, the risk of the world going nuclear, and finale!!!



    Thanks Grito! I think this is one of my scariest writes .. My other Dark poems - deal with demons and such ... This is mch closer to reality ... I pray that this never happens! Thanks again, Ken

    You did a great job with this one. I was compelled by it in the reading. It was intense the feelings you brought out. Let's hope this is not the end or how it ends. Let's try to breathe life into the tiny flicker of hope that is left to us. Our world needs to go on to start a better course of living with each other. 10 from me for vividly designing the poem so well.



    Thank you very much Marion for your awesome comments - and yes... let's pray that peace prevails and that Mankind wakes up! Thanks again, ...Ken

    Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.
