Humanity

Bleu saphir

Loin sous l'herbe, coup de pioche

Des jeunes hommes soufflent. Combien souffrent encore demain ?

Puis, dans un sursaut, l'un d'eux de sa main 

Dévoile une étoile bleue dans la roche

 

La Terre fut amputée, l'étincelle se meurt

Pas plus grosse qu'un sou, couleur d'océan

Le mineur, dans sa prison de souffre ardent

Ne verra plus qu'en rêve sa couleur

 

Sur le doigt de fer d'un monstre d'acier

La goutte étoilée ne luit plus 

Même pas de quoi éclaire

 

Les sinistres sourires des mangeur de Terre

Qui, en tout point semblables aux vers

Moisissent la pomme et Pourrissent l'espoir.

The Incredible Machine

A dawn of advance
The world was ready,
The people weren't
And their children heaved through years of framework,
It was progress...

 

Alas the good deeds
People found new needs,
They set out to reach
The things they would teach...

 

A night to recall
The battle was won,
The war neverending
Upon it they weaved a special network,
It was useless...

 

A spun web of fate
Of gaiety and hate,
Forgotten the days,
Of the mortal ways...

 

An eclipse of minds
Oiled engines and souls,
Young, riotous rage
And they wanted blood for joy and fireworks,
Evolution...

Humanity's Fire

Long ago man started a fire,

it was small, tiny, on the brink,

but it kept burning, smoldering,

until it found new sources to grow.

 

It grew slowly, consuming more,

exponentially larger, grander,

man marveled at its creation,

that could destroy so much. 

 

It begins to consume man,

and man begins to fight it,

Frantically, full of panic, 

piling water onto it.

 

But so many men love the fire,

they deny its hand in consuming others,

that it is a myth so others will smother out

their greatest invention that gives them so much

 

power.

 

For those who can direct the fire care not,

whether it consumes an ant or an aunt,

because it gives them control over all,

those who fight it are condemned.

 

The condemned have outgrown the not,

but fire is a mighty foe that has grown vast,

it unlocks now for itself more raw material,

the extinction of many species trivialized. 

 

Mass extinction by fire. 

 

Will the new stewards halt the progress?

Or is too much consumed that now

the smoke and soot will bury them?

Slowly, the condemned become the saviors. 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

A quick write. It's a bit on the nose but whatever.

Touch Up Humanity

The world is neither white nor black
But shades of gray.

So is nature.
So are our lives.
To see the perfect whole – impossible.
Each value system so unique.
Like you.

Be true to your beliefs.
Your peers.
Your community.
An live within yourself to the fullest.
It’s the small imperfections
That make you human.

Laugh,
Cry,
Always grow,
Touch up humanity.

Look at greatness.
Emulate the best.
Exceed.
Strive.
Believe.

But always return to yourself.
You are temporary.
You are not eternal.
Nor is the world and planet.
Live for now.
For the future.
For posterity.
For love.
For kindness, benevolence.
For the magic of your unique human quality.

For that I love you.

Career politician

Do i care of course not
I wouldnt even know if you rot
Now vote you retard
For your vote i lie very hard
You want education
Ill give you a vacation
Get back to your station

You are a fool if you think you have a choice
Now vote for me ill be your voice
I have a big house car a suit
Now get in line or ill make you mute

I sneer with a smile
And fool you for while
Draw you in with my bile
Im your freind who will serve and protect
But from humanity im disconnect

Ill cut the deficit
It will be to your benefit
Ill tax hard cut hard
Even make getting help hard

Equality is my facism
My Green's the new red
My Freedom is your slavery
Your kids are my martyrs
Im your buddy in a suit

At lies im a magician
The law is my weapon
Satan my companion
You know me alright
Im a career poltician

I Taught Him How to Catch Fish!

I saw a young man,


Near the river,


That looked like a painting!


He was a beggar.


 

He was begging for some fish,


From the nearby bazaar,


I called him to come in close proximity,


He appeared wearing a look bizarre!


 

I taught him how to catch fish from the river,

 

From then on he did not beg ever!

I will Teach You How to Love

I will teach you how to love,


I will teach you how to be humane,


How to sympathise with the needy,


How to amid insanity remain sane!


 

Come and follow my words,


You will achieve perfection,


You will realise the real truth of life,


You will get mental satisfaction.


 

Come if you are ready to sacrifice your valuable time,

 

For the sake of making a world without any crime!
