Inspiration hits with a flash, stories written on the go. A rumble of laughter and the tale is heard only in echoes. The wind blows me in a new direction. Whom shall I visit next?

INVEST your time in righting wrongs

Inflicted by the greedy throngs

INVENT a scheme to give love power

To rail and batter down the Tower

A HEATER warms me from the cold

But THEATER could break their mold

The HEATHER sways in fields untilled

Where mem'ries fell and joys were killed

The WEATHER blasts through plans well-meant

But men cause harm with full intent

UNITE for strength, in love and hope

To smite the fiend, UNTIE the rope

The SLAUGHTER starts. Despair is all,

But LAUGHTER waits beyond the wall

In ANGER strike the unjust foe

Let DANGER shatter to our blow

The RANGER knows the path we follow,

Through STRANGER lands where foul beasts wallow

And past the STRANGLER fell and rude

The WRANGLER of our servitude

Humanity's disdained these days

No businessman would mend his ways

With GREED they teem, AGREED in lust

For selfish gain; we cannot trust

A WORD they say, they love our pain

Still more whene'er they stand to gain

The things we EARNED. Our lives are scorned.

"Don't tell us you were never warned!"
