Paul Amrod: Inspiring Goodwill through Poetry
Whatever Happened To The Goodwill Ambassador?
Poem by Paul Amrod
Witnessing the selfish routine of lobbyists and a money mechanism
becoming cynically the normal affair of our passing hours.
Greeting a neighbor with a 'Good Morning' and a pleasant wish
has vanished with the dawn demonstrating a hideous pessimism.
Allocating the atrocities which somehow our sympathies devour.
The political conscious is contorted around shortsighted principles
contributing to a prognosis of supposed terror playing with gullibility.
I ask myself many provocative questions concerning seriousness
of intention with open-ended book shelves of fairytale like scribble.
Trying to capitalize upon the weakness of others in their deliriousness,
overly excited aggravating their stress, while destroying tranquility.
The boisterous message of alleged superiority exhibits narcissism
with an inkling of conceit compelling avoidance and dismisses
ingenuity while enlivening resistance over absurd acquittals.
May I inquire; Whatever happened to the goodwill ambassador?The ignorance of a military cooperate complex has perplexed
the intellectual environment in search for the left of middle.
Attempting to impress the youth with false promises the collectivism
is appalled with a continuous barrage of invalid and corrupted fixes.
Better to relax beneath a linden tree whistling with birdsong outdoors
and taking a pen to a page envisioning a princess with a troubadour.
Engendering a paradise of dreamlike passages composing a riddle
tickling our imaginations with pleasurable moments so gently expressed.
Nevertheless our aspirations are daunted and our direction is statically
inactive arousing the frustration of a meandering directionlessness.
Intentionally ignoring the media's spin as their irrational euphemism
is exposed as utter gibberish and nonsense exposing senselessness.
Saving acclamations for a fortuitous occasion can't keep us abreast
of the defiance necessary to counter the streams of grotesque fish
that swim through our legs as we venture courageously against the current.
I ask again; Whatever happened to the goodwill ambassador?He travelled the world with his mission of cooperation and neutrality
giving of his substance to clarify our deliverance and impartiality.
We were given the power of deduction with the capability of verbal deterrents
to bless our surroundings with examples of his statements assessed.
Showering us with admiration and inspiration presenting his altruism
to reconcile our tribulations and heal our jealousy forevermore.
With insight into the mediation of all philosophies he adores
a genuine and authentic resolve of spiritual abundance and veracity.
Reminding us as well of our groves and gardens galore
there to flourish in Nature and transport us organically.
We are a being, the precious component of this Earth's entirety,
gifted with shrewdness and the curator of our terrestrial décor.
We possess a sanctified position under the universe's Godly city
to protect the perfect balance of our sequence as heaven's servant.
Petitioning once more; Whatever happened to our goodwill ambassador?We send a lamentation to our archangels above to implore
a betterment of our situation at hand as we whine for it is a pity.
Selfishness and greed perpetrate the world as we slay the serpent
with a cooing murmur of poesy melting the cold heart we deplore.
As the goodwill grows with significance we salvage our sanity
with one last breath of hopefulness as patience warrants our success.
