SILLY OLD ME

My television is filled with flies So my ears can’t stand the buzz Those piles of emotions Causing your heart’s corrosion Can freely pass through my tunnels So why hoard them until they turn into a filthy fountain Overflowing in-out-in of you?

WHEN NIGHT RISES

As palm-wine ferments When time fans  So does passion ferment to booze in time Its booze gives madness Each dose intensifying fierceness So heat in a heat Let’s dance to the  beat Even if all we have are our feet And a seat II When we meet In the face of the rising night, Even […]
