The Land Of Make Believe

The land of make believe

Is all around and we’re sucked in.

TV, films, vampire and villain –

We are sold and they’ve got hold;

Female and male, young and old.


Our dreams are mares of night and fright

And flight we cannot take.

The make believe tears at our inners,

Thoughts and feelings not expressed

Confirming our worst fears.


No rhyme or meter,

Beat or pulse can make it better.

Make believe cannot relieve

The state of jitters fettered by



The Land Of Make Believe 9.1.2016

Our Times, Our Culture II;
