Blind eye (tanka)

Plastic lacquered gems

Easy, painless, eye-candy

Fool’s gold for the fools

Whilst trampling tragic treasure

A deep diamond in the rough

  1. This is so beautifully written. How tragic is it that we turn a blind eye to the impact of our actions – like fools as your poem highlights so well.
    “Fool’s gold for the fools
    Whilst trampling tragic treasure”

    I love the different ways this can be interpreted.
