Flagrancy: A POEM

Flagrancy: A POEM

I jug like a shrew
Into the arms of your vein
To slay your thoughts
And feed you my desires
My words to wet your dreams

The road is cast
Dawn descends down the slope
The leaves are there to dare
Ceasing your legs with sprinkled water
Listen and learn;

To the carcasses in the potholes
The bodies on the slain paths
Eyes gorged by warring bullets
Hearts robbed of love
To the souls lost to an assassin's bullet
The hearts plunged to early graves
Children of our fallen heroes
Whose tears have cooked the beans
To the souls flogged by life
Dribbled into the seat of filth;
To the champions of good
Fallen by the blade of betrayal
Our hearts meet your tears

We throw you a mountain of salutes!
Let the sparkle bliss your works
And the fireworks drain your tears
We shall walk by the river of time
To spill the famed exploits of your past
To chew and thrill
In the lanes of your thoughts
Chai!

No smile, no laugh
Our hearts like the face of an old woman
Chained to the wealth of pain
Flattered by wrinkles
Bad is good; good is bad
See the tears on my face
Tell me, you feel good?
Do you?
