Powerful men and women affect the lives of us all. But, the powerful are just as vulnerable and will have to answer, after death, for their actions. Then, all are equal and that is when behaviour and decisions made on earth really matters.


This poem is from 'Choice for Teenagers' by Dr Audrey Coatesworth

Power

 

Powerful men wield a sword

There seems nothing we can do

But –

Listen to this short story

That I can relate to you

 

There was a man, sadistic, cruel

His arm was hammer strong

His legs quickly covered ground

His reach was very long

 

He terrorised his neighbours

And his wife was made to hide

But –

Being ignorant, he didn't know

What rode upon the tide

 

Swimming in the sea one day

The beach was ‘none too clean’

He didn’t think, but very soon

Would regret where he had been

 

His coffin, carried by eight men

Was heavy and long – for he

Was defeated by a virus - too small

For the naked eye to see

 

A miniscule item was stronger

Had surpassing force and power

Than this bully - who caused such fear

And

No one left a flower

 

Poem is copyright ACoatesworth2009

The book 'Choice for Teenagers' can be bought, as paperback from PLP Publishings(UK), The Book Patch ( in USA) and as Kindle eBook from Amazon
