All Together Now: Senryu

ALL TOGETHER NOW

There’d be no rainbow
Except for all the colours
Sharing its beauty

Credo

CREDO

I believe
That when we die
Our bodies return
To the dust they were made of

And our spirit wakes (again)
To the realisation that Spirit transcends
Species, race, gender, sexuality and all that nonsense

What we have only glimpsed of Love
Is fully revealed (once more)
In its wholeness

What foolish things we’ve done
Yet now forgiven

Far From Home

FAR FROM HOME

Racist illusions
There is no one to defend
Painful foolishness

In Essence

IN ESSENCE

Nothing’s black or white;
‘t’s all mixed up. Nothing changes;
Just the skin colour.

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

Casualty (A Four By Six)

CASUALTY

Casual racism
You see it everywhere
Never casual though
For its recipients

Above The Law Man

ABOVE THE LAW MAN

As electric as a taser in a uniformed hand
Reduced to casual use by habituation

As savage as institutional bigotry
Sworn to protect (but to protect what?)

As passionate as a true believer
Stone-blind in his black and white world
