The ending
of our true history
died a long time ago
when the teaching
of our children
of a history
that has been proven
was not so
and when the future
comes to pass
the inevitable spread
of the death
of common sense
will show
that the virus
was just another way
to keep you
as a slave

Field Of Dreams

multicolored bowling balls
rotting heads of state
sprout flowers instead of lies
viral immunity inadequate protection
from mobs guillotine noose
bloody revolt nourishes landscape
wounds heal meadows rejuvenate
mother earth sings

Will there be Peace

The cobbled streets in the city of spires,  
a mundane morning yet the charm inspires
the high streets of glory, stories of rivendale
Itís just a fantasy, of a young man and his fairy tale
On a grayish day, the perched goblin has its eyes stray
and the crazy faces on the walls hiding away, not to become a prey  
they young man walks, cherishing that gloomy day
as he meets a women that was sweeping his feet away
an ordinary folk would imagine that itís the poetry of bard  
cryptic writings upon the Turl is not taking their worlds apart  
but to the river of Magdelin, to rent a long boat with a punt  
where lovers knock on each other, with a pint after a duck hunt  
such was the craziness living with the spires in the shire  
green meadows with the summers breeze, train ride to Wiltshire  
when Gandalf and Dumbledore, were dancing on the corridor  
a drunk Mary Poppins was hopping from door to door
The Turl and the Turf, was a walk away from the Head of the River
Eagle and Child and the Kings Arms was cold and gave the shivers  
None of these made any sense and Iím having a very high fever
Aches and pains, my energy is totally drained, will I recover  
reality is a turd and nothing about it is actually absurd  
its life throwing you punch, and a sucker punch, yet itís not weird
and the peaceful world comes tumbling down and gets shattered  
droplets of rain, freezing over on its way down, and my world is battered  
the high streetís serenity disappears, an anarchy appears
at the frontiers of a wet market, the craziness of the asymptomatic racket
bootlegging and smuggling the wild animals are playing croupiers
letting the chaos erupt yet protecting those in the elitist bracket
was it a bat or a rat and yet it germinates with the pangolin
hot scotch and rum, a deadly mix when you play the violin  
a contraband in a holiday van, yet no one understands  
Yet at the wet market, where they all took a stand
Itís not just a cold Ms Marygold, itís a virus that can kill us
empire of the sun or twenty one, the planet in 3 months was on its knees
Submitting to an invisible enemy that everyone knows it dangerous  
But I am still concerned, after all of this, will the world remain in peace?

The last page of history (sexton beetle)

On the screen the credits roll    
who will be the next director  
endangered earth as the titles scroll  
will god be our protector? †  
I gaze into my crystal ball †  
and I see no human form †  
that harbinger has reaped its toll †  
no hand to scribe, all gone before †  
† †
The shelf where history was all wrote †  
all archived, the virus edited all books † †
just evolutions right to cope †  
†nature, all man's seasons now revoked †  
† †
In that spring clean, †past wiped away †  
†the alien that came was it man made ? †  
assign our planet to a mass grave †  
to start again on a clean page †  
† †
But who is there to wield a spade †  
read the last rights for the planet †  
rewind and delete all saved †  
the sexton beetles hunger vanish †

Violet violence

Amoebe awareness
I was a portrait
Sepia toned
my clenched fists
could not demolish
life mirrored
we prayed for peace
far beyond debris
plastified oceans
could not set us free
Tribal face painting
Rites of passage
pandemonium photographed
dug up by archeologists
none died
an art
of being

End of the World

In the days when hate and racism came more to light
Scientists spoke of a virus like end of the world prophets
But the rich and elite went against their advice out of spite
Because they were too focused on gains and profits

Then when governments began to crumble within
Weak leaders failed them as they died by the masses
While the privileged in their mansions sipped on gin
They helped build a bigger rift between the two classes

But this disease didnít care about any social status
As it crept through every continent, nation and race
And though many denied itís existence with malice
It took them too leaving a trail of bodies in it's place

Ignorance and indifference helped spread a virus
A war fought valiantly in hospital rooms and halls
Doctors and nurses were at the front line of a crisis
And like soldiers they too fell amidst medical calls

Day by day the world came to a heartbreaking end
As many fought bravely for life and all that is worth
Hate and disease were the enemy as history penned
Leaving a select few to continue life on this earth

Love equals Infinity

When glaciers melt and oceans rise
and people live only on mountain
tops even then will I love you.  
When weíve poisoned all the air
and the planet is gasping and chocking,
with my last breath I will shout I love you.  
When all we know has passed away
and weíre traveling through nothing,
going nowhere, at the very edge of that black hole
my soul will scream, I love you.
The scream is joined, the silence broken,
the dark closes in, the roar splits the darkness,
a sliver of light, love escapes, the person wakes up terrified,
Was this just a dream or does the battle continue?

A Viral Earth  

Leather feathers and bird leaves
halo weather ,mad cow disease
humans faltered as Earth recedes
plastic castings of trickery
the face , the mask's all they see .

Revelations of allied nations
Kingdom's rising regaining elevation
empirically tested with more invested interest
in our damnation ,we're living totalitarian

A wild stampede all substrates in need
all known seeds are buried under
lands of green
they think it won't be known
if it ,can't be seen
so when the show really blows
they can start clean.

Numerical in digits
via portals ,near missed hits
feared land-fills, prophets get blitzed
they want to stamp us with triple six.
