SORES ON THE WORLD

Sores from our sins …score frowns owing to our stubbornness Shooing peace from our calls Pushing chaos to us And still writing terror on balls of our eyes This is the irony that is ironing humanity II At all times …some are bubbles and others are arrows The latter aiming for the former in shots […]

ANGRY CLOUDS

In time …the rich will gobble down the poor …and form their paupers who’ll be the most pitiable …of all Because they’ll find no free grass to make hay And they’ll find no free fruits on trees They’ll find no free land to on lay And there’ll be no bad job to take II In […]

I KNOW NO FOE

YOURS IS YOURS

Even vultures know Yes, vultures sympathise with their village corpses Like their own families, they eat but leave a little to be seen. On other lands, new meat, different taste If care is not taken, even bones cannot be seen. I was told but I thought not And just like a child viewing a beautiful […]

CROSS BREEDING

In this day and age When civilization has made all duplicates on this stage And cross breeding is no new adage Who cares about the deep inked page? When all colours have some colour gauge?   In this modern era When many pray for the ears of Selah Who wants to chew only the house […]
