We The People

Relict of a union

Formerly united

Blinded difference

ultimately divided

Tears shed for milk

Bitter is the honey

Bees become extinct

No pollinating money

Voices undisturbed

beneath the rubble

Justified in thought

causing no trouble

“We the People”

having no eyes

Dialect too vague

Over deafening cries

Author's Notes:
My thoughts at the time of writing this poem were that we are so blinded by differences and skin color that we can not see past that in order to address the real problems of this nation. The poem was based on Einsteins supposed quote “If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe then man would only have four years of life left".
There are different referrences in each stanza and I hope they are not too vague and that everyone understands the meaning.
Honest thoughts and interpretations are appreciated and welcomed.

It is undoubtedly a deep and thought-provoking poem, which refelcts the colours that nature offers to man!

Einstein actually didn't say that quote, its falsely attributed to him but i like the way you kept this poem tight and structured, but i would have liked to see more depth too.

good work

Kay -This is an interesting poem, as much as we vilify the US for our human failings.  Consider how politics are in other countries. Are we imperfect,,, yes but It is much worse elsewhere.
