Every Swaying Palm

Every Swaying Palm

There's a dim red sky this morning

so will we heed the warning

while breezes start to blow?

Or do our big decisions

with various delusions

deceive us as we go?


The palm will never warn us -

as it can only focus

on current trends instead.

Just watch the dancing leaves

and see what man believes

despite what lies ahead.


The truth, so soon surpasses

the numbers of the masses

as storms will surely come.

God will hit with greater wrath

while pelting every evil path

until we all succumb.


Can we agree, can we concur -

except for greed, so popular -

while it's serene and calm?

There's always something we can miss

for ignorance is always bliss -

with every swaying palm.
