Insignia

Clock chimes eight
I am certainly late
moment is gone
Left all alone
in a large crowd
Just on my own
No one to talk
No one to phone
Long walk to nowhere
Heartache prone
Excluded, a leper
large tumour grown
Keep vultures at bay
pure grit shown
wasted beautiful moments
now buried under a stone20140703-125050 pm-46250479.jpg

Lyceum

created in all
ventriloquist’s dolls
of soul and flesh
critical thinking,
knowledge, amiss
ignorance a bliss
let you live
in Ivory towers

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

Priorities

If life is a race
to the top
you realise
conceptualise

doesn’t really matter
how much you stall
at the end you fall
Gravity pulls hard

all what ultimately
logically, if unwilling then
sometimes tragically
belongs to earth’s bosom

pick a colour
from soul’s prism
as long as it has love
humility and care

take your time, dig deep
for a perfect spot
to lie in loving,
embrace of our mother

Pockets full, empty hands

Life’s conversation
discussion, education
a sermon on Sunday
Friday, Saturday, Monday
Purpose, aims, objects
strategy, plans, subject
to what happens next
treachery and tact
opportunities, endless goals
chasing wealth blackholes
working beyond hard
souls and flesh apart
Morals integrity auctions
anger, heartless eruptions
more and more we make
Death due, nothing to take
