Richard Pierce – author, poet, painter

Poetry, Politics


To misplace is an accident.
To displace an intention.

They know no better than
To fight, and to kill, to
Torture and blame others
For what they do. What once
Was freedom is no more than
Greed, a struggle for power in
The thin line of a pen.


Definitions are arguable
And none at all in reality.
These pieces of land are
Currency rather than the
Hills and plains of habitat
Where small tribes lived
Alone and in peace.

Peace is such a lost word.

Meaning has been displaced
By an invention of words
Strangled by intentions.
