#Poem at night: Cassandra calling


I wrote this sometime in 2011 and it astonishes me how up to date it still is:

Cassandra is calling
but Europa again
falls for the bull.

There is no
new kingdom
awaiting her though!

Even lugubrious storm clouds
are fleeing
her countries!

There is no
hope for her
ancient cities!

But the
wise and brave
try anyhow!

There is no
care or reason
with the powerful!

Will they
listen to
her people?

Will they
listen and learn
or lose forever?

Cassandra is calling
calling and calling

but there is no
for her calls!
