Man-U-Fracturing Structure.

Updated on August 12, 2022

I have written over 4,000 poems and 1,000 songs and yet I am still searching for that perfect poem or song which eludes me.

The process of falling to ruin.

Manufracturing Structure.
It rises in 
industrial splendor
reduced to waste, 
just a blur on 
the horizons it blots
Ramshackle, man's labor, 
mars nature.
Here the sweat 
of mens brows 
mixed with soil and toil 
brought markets 
a product once needed.
Now derelict it sits 
in grey squalor spoiled
haunted by some long dead
common workers.
Its cranium a nest 
for the birds,
its belly a warm spot 
for field mice, 
amidst empty cartons discarded.
Weeds slowly choking 
its foundations as 
nature reclaims its 
stilled carcass
and renders it mulch 
for the field.
Are we not all derelict 
structures of flesh 
when we reach that 
point of no return
condemened to sit idle
an eyesore amidst 
the beauty we once knew
the windows of our eyes
cracked by cataracts 
or bloodshot by glaucoma
the clock of a coma-tose state.
our exteriors sagging
like old barns
our interiors
brittle and fracturing
the drywalls of our souls 
shedding fragments 
of memories forgotten
Savor the real estate 
of who you are
before you become
un-real estates
left to rot in a six foot plot.
Do not rush to ruin 
the temples God granted you
with drugs and alcohol
Soon enough you will 
wobble when you walk
become incoherent
staggering through the 
Jurassic age of your life.
Look to the abandoned
factories and homes
restaraunts and stores
and see them as a mirror 
of what's to come.
And when you are finally 
ramshackled flesh
sit in your designated
chair on wheels
like mobile homeless
and relive your youthful days
with whimsical smiles
on the facade of your faces
that once held 
architectural renderings 
others loved to behold
far too soon 
reduced to 
crumbling parchment
stretched tightly across
bone white skeletal remains.
"Such is Life."
