Call it a blessing, I call it a sickness
When every gift mishandled is a curse
I am the guilty, kill me as I bear false witness
With every lie that I tell it only gets worse...

I saw the pain in your eyes as I spoke blame
When knowing me comes with the risk of getting hurt again
Trust is a grave responsibility and a dangerous game
I am a lover but I'm only a man...

A Change Of Heart🔻

( 4-line rhymes )


🔻1🔻
A carrot is a root
That helps your eyes to see.
Tomato is a fruit,
So what does that make me?

🔸2🔸
A billy goat’s a boy
Who tends to eat and rut,
And if he gets annoyed
He’ll butt you in the gut.

🔹3🔹
A nanny goat’s a doe
Who gives milk to her kid.
She’ll chase you so you know
She saw what you just did.

🔻4🔻
Sebastian never liked
To hang around with girls.
On dates he’d go on strike,
His hair had longer curls.

🔸5🔸
A lion has his pride,
A tiger with her cubs.
A groom will kiss a bride
In spite of all the rubs.

🔹6🔹
The coward daily dies,
The brave one only once.
So there is no surprise
A cheat dies every month.

🔻7🔻
The saying always goes
A love for every heart,
But there’s a clause that shows
You’ve got to play it smart.

🔸8🔸
I have no enemies,
There are none in my eyes.
Because I’d rather tease,
And never to despise.

🔹9🔹
I didn’t always know
That this was the best way
In life, so I could show
My heart a lighter day.

Hands Of Angels

Driven through a road of fog early mornings.
Not just talking to a radio but a prayer to God through a phone.
It’s not so much in the thought but the power of the sayings.
Words could be forgotten the ones that stick are those forever spoken with a graceful tone.

OPIATE OF THE PEOPLE
He prayed in a way that made no sense
as one of the chosen few
but all was fine to waste his time
from the tyranny’s point of view.

PALESTINIANS’ PRAYER
The Jews enjoy extra-terrestrial privilege
because the god they chose, or who chose them
controls special favours at the expense of
‘Love Thy Neighbour’.  Amen.

THEY LAY THERE
They lay there dead
but did not need to
look up at the stars
for they were among them.

3.00 a.m
The mosquito buzzes in my left ear …
I flick it away
and turn over.
The mosquito buzzes in my right ear …

It’s 1902 I’m staring down a camera with an orange
That’s my Christmas gift, I sit with it
but another world I’m off in
so I’m left to watch Richie Rich

I was given away a secret tale today
By coffe rings on the kitchen table
I wanted to but was not able
The knowledge did not wash away

She says education needs to stay in my head
He knocks I say we’re not getting off
Wanted it in the lecture soon as she said sex
now from the room shouts “fer-fer-fetch a cloth!”

On Earth as it is, step up
You won’t need a second
To know they ain’t bumping Eminem in Heaven
God, I’m silent for the time-being, put that on record

LINGERS

I say, you pulled off quite a feat:
How could someone seem so sweet
Yet impart such a scent that lingers
On my face and on my fingers?

Through maga mouths we alligned
Catacombic abys harmonized bliss
Our celestial bodies ferally combined
Thirsting bloom  unite, as we kiss

I washed the stains from fabricked truths
Runic lines spelled distances behold
Ironed catacombic tears from pragmatic suits
Where mirrors speak lies foretold

The Interconnectedness of Nature

The tree grows tall,
The flower's petals fall,
The butterfly flies high,
The full moon is nigh.

Ouch!

Jalapenos,
They are too hot, and hurt my nose,
Eyes water, nose sneezes...and runs!
Get back here before they bring the onions!
