USA USA USA You Were Saying?

USA USA USA YOU WERE SAYING?

These self-appointed slick lords
Never as cool as they’d like
Foreverly seeking applause

In the forever even dragons
Left entertaining archons
Have demons of their own

Riding the American nightmare
Jet and ivory – non consensual
The wizard is behind your eyes

In the absence of actual presence
The child imagines companions
Drums up sugar plum fairies or …

Pays for encore after encore
Ends up head in a basket
Soul sold to the soulless

Carries on, on and on resonating
Aleatorically, unapologetically
Their cross to bear

Not A Car But A Vision

NOT A CAR BUT A VISION

Antara her name she told me.
Sanskrit, with a literal meaning:
“In the middle; in between; within”.
Quietly manifesting this current skin
Magnificent? That and then some!

Coupling And Decoupling

COUPLING AND DECOUPLING

Power she had in mind, in body too
He also had his power, duly exerted
And weaknesses (carefully disguised)

They once so hip, but now replaced
Following their gradual disrobement
As together all’s well that ends well

Pushy Advisors

PUSHY ADVISORS

I could, I know
Or so I thought
Till I woke – Saw

I would if I could
But I can’t
So I shan’t

And as for your
Myriad shoulds
I leave you free

To go play
In your own
Backyards

Wielding The Force (A Four By Six)

WIELDING THE FORCE

Jobsworths* and Presidents
Share the same brazen* view
What’s the point of power
If you don’t abuse it?

~~~~~~~

*Jobsworth: a minor factotum whose only status comes from enforcing otherwise petty regulations.

*Brazen: Unrestrained by a sense of shame; rudely bold.

Uprising

Bien Sûr

BIEN SÛR

Here’s to tomorrow
Recalling bien sûr

That the sole change
We are capable of

Is the seed we plant
In this current moment

Game, Set And Match

GAME, SET AND MATCH

Fear is the mind killer it’s said
But isn’t it as clear arrogance

(Its crooked by-blow offspring)
Is never lagging too far behind

She taught him this years ago
But sadly he failed to learn it

He taught her this years ago
But sadly she failed to learn it

To blame … teacher or pupil?
Or maybe it’s a double fault
