IN TRIAL

As the boughs break in aim
…for your best
And the guns shoot in aim
…for your gains
Let none see the spear of fear
…aiming at your sanity

II
It is a battlefield
…of breaking and broken
It is an unfairness ring
…of reasoning and reckoning
It is a bandying court
…of cutting and clearing
All shaded by vulnerable laws
…leaking and leaning in meaning

III
Is that not why blameless souls
…languish in blameful holes?
Is that not why savage swords
…write as inks
While important ink get lost
…in sands?
Is that not why manipulators
…own crowns
As kings
…act clowns?
Is that not why false
…act truth
As truth dies in many a stillbirth?

IV
Buy some toughness
…on the market of struggles
Where consciences shamelessly
Auction themselves for pesewas
Buy some strength
…to armour your weakness
Lest you fall
…in a failing finish

V
Crying sells headaches
…long term
Thinking sells insanity –
…long term
Cursing sells loneliness –
…long term
Hating sells bitterness –
…long term
Complaining sells shunning
…long term
Slugging sells poverty
…from short to long term
So wake to make your take a cake all bake

V
As cocks crow
And shocks flow
As mocks mow
And blocks blow
Stand tall through it all
And see the pate of success
Before earth calls
