Ivory Towers

Today as rain again settled on falling over us here again, I sat to write a little poetry. BUT as on occasions before, I had no set topic in which to write on. Thus I began writing to see where this little journey of creating a little poetry would land upon. Below is the end result, but the topic may be more than one area of life rather than the singular tale it may show.

As the title suggest, an Ivory Tower suggests one issue as in seperation from the world as it were. Where also it may be seen of those who view themselves as above or beyond anyone of issue. BUT I also link it in attitude to how we look upon certain issues or people in general. Thus in a manner of speaking an ivory tower can exist in how we live our lives and also how we view issues or people in life.

Having explained my view on an Ivory tower, Todays poem does not view an ivory tower in a very positive light. But it seeks to bring to question why the tower exist there? Maybe for some it is a means of coping or existoing in a world that has been most horrible to them. Yet some have used it for other means.

BUT I let it for you the reader to decide for yourself to answer any questions or even pose questions that may arise. The poem brings issues forward for the readers to chew upon and decide in time.

BUT in the end, poetry is to be enjoyed. Thus Please enjoy!

Ivory Towers

Floating numbers above the catacombs,
Register the effect on stately homes.
Required reports soon missing in action,
Battle begins as lines are attraction.

Below the line poverty sanctions life,
Where the hat laid confined where homeless strife,
Struggling the tides of existence free,
For the lord defines worthless ne’er agree.

The ivory tower stands all can see,
As jewels decorate for guests at three.
No scraps for dogs lords declare empty bogs,
Stability motions free more backlogs.

A rose tattoo covers battle worn scars,
Night crawling victim mental health yet stars.
Whilst party continues through to day light,
Ivory tower rocks for some alright.

Shared glory, shared faces, yet roll the dice,
For Ivory towers exemption trice.
Defence stands on uneven ground thus stand,
Battle hardened lives has no knives at hand.
