8 minutes 46 seconds by Gail #StarfishClub #WritingCommunity #Coffeeandachat

8 minutes 46 seconds for the world to change

8 minutes 46 seconds to end one man’s pain

Grown man, father, brother, son

with a knee on his neck he cried for his mum

Enough is enough! cries from all corners

World afire, protesters and looters

The emperor strides with his head in a cloud

Not a stitch on his hide, sycophants applaud

Where will this end, I don’t know

Things will come to a head of that im sure

When the sun rises on that day

For a world at peace I hope and pray
