FLAMBOYANT FLOPS

When I think of the energetic songs which caught earsAnd the patriotic chants which shot fearsWhen I think of the natural beauty we exchange for artificialForcing our lives to be superficialI cry the rhythms of those who sangAnd mourn the sweats of those who chanted to ward off many a fang IIWe reiterated our love […]

JUST A FREE VERSE
