Message

Messenger at the door
Brought news from my beloved
Moments are eternity, in dark nights
lost without you, nightmare frights
Come home soon, before full moon
assassins everywhere, sending this dove
distances are killers of passion and love

Path

Chosen hard road
not many will take
Travellers, passers by
admirable pity to fake
destiny you decide
desert, oasis, lake
scorching skin bake
Till another day ends

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
