Shining glas

Each morning the change is there…
bricks, concrete and steel covered in shining glas…
It keep still stealing the view here…
expensive for far to many and for the most to pass…

The rich keep calling out…
we have so little and nothing to share…
Crying out the endless greedy shout…
give us more and we create the world for the most to care…

Shining glas reflecting the truth of wealth…
How does it feel to see people without a home…
Exploiting the last of their health…
and don’t care because you roam…

Since the seventies they have increased their volume of money…
more than eighteen times and you are still standing there…
Year you get more now but have to pay more to please your honey…
it is impossible to escape the fingers of those who dare…

Homes shattered and send into oblivion…
children seeking the comfort of safety in a cardboard box on the street…
Lean on us and do trust the words we speak in this great Union…
forgotten is, that the poor always pay the fare to those who are greedy…

The revolution is always coming from below…
I now ask of all of you to join me in this quest…
Come with me and there is something I want to show…
it really does not matter if you go east or west…

Shining glas reflecting the truth of wealth…
How does it feel to see people without a home…
Exploiting the last of their health…
and don’t care because you roam…

About jachso

Hey Destiny Poets. I live in Denmark about 90 km from Copenhagen and works in Roskilde as a teacher and mentor. I'm probably not like most men of my age and yes I am aged 50 years old. I've tried a lot of jobs without finding what I'm passionate about. Writing, I have always loved and I was probably just 14 years old when I produced my first poem. I have not yet been released some of my poems, but I hope it happens one day. I just finished a novel which I would like to have published, now the time and talent show whether I have the ability to write. Poetry has a special meaning for me and this is where I really feel at home. My life has sometimes been marked by many losses. In the mid eighties, I lost my fiance at the time when the accident happened was pregnant. She lost control of the car and drove herself and her child, who was on his way thereby, to death. It has really made its mark on my life and way of thinking. In the late nineties, I had problems with my back and had to seek other avenues to support myself. I finally decided to enroll at university and was admitted to the humanist line. I read philosophy, science, psychology, journalism and history, but philosophy and psychology is my major interest. I thrive today in the RUC aka Roskilde University just 25 km from Copenhagen. My job is to guide and teach, and it is a job with speed and that gives me a lot again. I have two collections of poems ready to be released, if I can find a publisher who will publish them. I have no children, it would obviously be my lot in life although I have tried, but luck never smiled at me that way. If you have any questions for me so I hope you just ask away all you want, I'll respond as soon as I have read the questions. With kindest regards from Jan Sorensen

    A coruscating and mordant critique of contemporary society.

    EDITORIAL FOOTNOTE:-
    Interesting use of the spelling of ” Glas” as opposed to the English version “Glass”. It is entirely correct,editorially, to recognise its intrinsic validity in this poem.
