Crimes of Society — Poetry

I must have seen something…

Glowing eyes of blazing flames
Cowering in a corner behind
A rusted, rat-infested trash bin
Smoke billowing from broken window panes

This is what fire fighters are for…

Lustful, groping hands
Muffled screams and cringes of fear
Under a dusted light post
Darting eyes fixed upon my back

No one rapes in plain view…

Gangs running wild in dim-lit streets
Smashings and bashings of any
Race or sex not mine, not yours
Or a lifestyle alternative to ours

But all men are created equal…

…yet, I did not stop or speak or help

Happy Anniversary!

Today marks my 4th anniversary on WordPress. Yay me! And yet, I feel like I’ve contributed very little to the WordPress community. Oh well… still 4 years in the same place is pretty good.

In other news… I am looking forward to November. I will be doing the NaNoWriMo this year. It will be a sequel of sorts to the Sci-Fi Novelette I wrote in April. If you haven’t read it, you can check it out HERE… just be sure to scroll to the bottom and begin with Letter A. I am not sure yet if I will be posting the new work daily on Promptly Written or not. I haven’t quite made up my mind. My novelette did not receive many readers in April, so I don’t really want to waste my time posting if it will not be read. I may just post updates about it here on this blog.

Happy writing everyone!
