Keeper

decades I have been
things I have seen
future kings’ obscene
green politicians preen
scientists’ bane
philosophers in vain
entertainers bore
academics impure
viscounts stutter
barons in gutter
princesses flutter
then slip on butter
poor’s screams
education a dream
nothing it seems
stops rich being fed
education in med
philosophy, art
pompous fart
why it is so
poor kids like me
grow up in pens
guarding dirty dens
cleaning filthy acts
dirty secrets, facts
protecting wealth
wasting youth, health
so princes live
in dorms above
my spent age
for a simple badge
that I served here
retired and die
an enormous lie

Tinkerbell’s home

A fairy’s twinkle
Touched poor heart
Lost, bewildered
Stops and starts
Looking for her abode
To return in kind
affection received
Love left behind
Crossed seven seas
Could not find
Fairy and her home
Honolulu to Rome
Searched researched
for decades past
Eyes had less light
million memories lost
Stumbled upon
most beautiful dome
my missing dear fairy
and her long lost home
Kiss was returned
Passions climb
Eyes shined brightly
one last time
travels of decades
worth every dime
last breath in her arms
in heaven sublime

Screw loose

A single faulty bolt
initiating grand revolt
few levers never pulled
dissatisfaction never culled
keep running discontent
greedy, solitary intent
ruling wills until eternity
there is fact, certainty
it will not be the case
leave this mad gory race
come to a standstill, halt
fix that life, contentment bolt

Volcano

Ashes suggest a burning desire
My heart wishes, it aspires
To come near you, endear you
Potency of my passion
Affection, compassion
You want to be near, yet not so close
fear of destruction, everything you lose
You know my nature, whatever I crave
Nothing survives, nothing stays

When shiny things lose lustre

Born with a
diamond crusted
platinum adorned,
silver spoon

Raised by virtuosos,
masters of fame
Tricks of the trade
by best in the game

Presents always
glitter and gold
all shiny new
Nothing ever old

Life has been kind,
too kind always
Nights been generous
Sunny all days

One fine day
age arrives
energy evaporates
body survives

all limbs injured
every bone hurts
used to be dames
now death flirts

presents still shiny
chests full of gold
all lose lustre
when we feel old

Ashes

Dust and ashes
Reminds the end
beginnings, pretend
heaven send
Or was it hell
Time will tell
What is to there to sell
soul sold
heart under hammer
Can’t speak a word
Stammer stammer
Amend your words
Correct grammar
it won’t change the script
Decrypt the message
Open the passage
Time to go
End the lust
of eternal life
Going is must
Ashes and dust
Where is the coffin
Lay it to rest
Ashes and dust
and gust, takes it away
to deep dark
unknown valleys
spread last remains
of bones and flesh
comprehend
powerless being

Long-winded drivel

Let’s discuss this
Let’s discuss that

Doesn’t matter what
Doesn’t matter who
Colours will do
Green or blue

Ocean waters
Sons, daughters
Smiles, laughter
Plenty crying after

Walk and runs
Joys and funs
Words just flow
Ideas grow

Philosophy
Geography
Anatomy
Taxonomy

Conquests, cures
Pains endured
Slow…down
More and more
Hit the floor

Listen to the hum
Mother Earth glum
Could ignore
Talk some more
Finance, politics
Don’t be a bore

How about ants living,
Gorillas screaming
Purpose of living
Reasons for dying
Riches, diamonds
Life unsatisfying

Inviting, biting
Infinite fighting
Cause unknown
Bodies thrown
Souls blown

Inhuman misery
Factories, fisheries
Ships and planes
Expanses, plains

Roof of the world
Beautiful birds
Beaches and peaches
Eels and leeches
Jail breaches

Injuries, hurts
Heart wrenching, flirts
Indeed…about that,
Stop staring that skirt
Stop calling me a bird
You are such dirt

Why going so low
Flying solo
Let me hold that hand
Understand

Humanity, insanity
Divinity, destiny,
Joys of being, litany

a samurai sword,
High tea can’t afford
Unstoppable buying
nowhere to hoard

Walk and stand
Invisible hand
Conspiracies true
my love for you

Go on and on
Till it is dawn
A new day again
discussion began
