Great piece. Really makes you think about how things are all over the world.
Fame, Glory, Grand illusions
Shameless acts of modern wisdom
Vindicated as prophecy
Whilst superseding freedom
I think in the work force so many corporations take advantage of their workers. Very sad and wrong. Maybe one day they will see without these workers they would be nothing. The workers are the backbone of society.
I really liked this poem. The message is really suited for how the world is today and I think you hit just about everything on target. The poem itself was full of life and good messages that one can glean from reading. :] The flow of the poem was rather smooth and went line from line. There were also a lot of emotions hidden in this poem that can be felt as well. Great job and keep writing.
Curious about your choice of 'justify' in line 2.
How would that make things transparent; I say that in the sense that corporations are adept at justifying their 'non-disclosure'
Manipulated peace hurled
I take this to have a double meaning:
1 - That the exposure of corporate doings causes much of the industrial-military complex to colapse & bring peace to those areas affected
2 - That the complacency allowing the rise & continuation of corporate greed is a thing manipulated by the corporations themselves, so that exposure gives rise to confrontation of this evil.
I suspect you worded the poem to capture both meanings, whether deliberatly or unconsciously.
