Against Stupidity Truth Dies

Against stupidity the gods above contend in vain

Against intelligence the politicians below struggle in pain

Against common sense capitalism makes a mark

For every Bruce Banner we present the House of Stark

Against what ought to be done for the common good

We have weekly massacres decimating human brood

Against unity and common action we find

We sip martinis leaving our brothers body behind

Love conquers all but money buys more love

In spite of the warnings we ignore angels above

We chose demons inside and from hell to find

Because heaven is boring the Devil has more fun in mind

So we ignore the shootings and we ignore the shoutings

Ignore the slowly baked planet we succumb to the doubting

God built us to search for the truth but truth is now a tweet multiplied

I wanted the truth but all you gave was lied tied compromised

 

poetry in my vein 

I have poetry in my vein  I have music in my brain

I love the mystery of life I ponder it without refrain

I think and write and I rest and write  again

Even when my mind starts screaming from the pain

poetry has helped me heal and it has healed my bounce

I was all alone before now I am a lion ready to pounce

I was inspired by a girl far away and I chose to pray

Thinking should I tell her again or should I keep writing today

I have started to write this poem I guess I need to close the end

Sometimes love and life are a straight road, sometimes a bend

This is not a game of football nor a game of cards

We are neither hackers nor poets or bards

love is stronger hate is wronger

love is stronger just like hate is wronger

it is easy and it is weak to  hate

it is tough to show up at the altar

it is fashionable to pretend to be late

it is within me and it is within  you

to pursue hate or turn towards love too

yes we risk heartbreak and we risk agonized

when we fall in love and we let ourself be loved

when angels wait outside as demons inside are purged

when time stands still when rain has your hut submerged

when it seems all is lost in the dark it is love that will save

for we are humans built by gods to live free not a slave

be afraid and be alone be hateful and be gone

be brave and fall in love be strange and be above

to the daily mundane work and the daily practicalities

embrace love and being loved as an essential sentimentality

the bagpipes

The dreams are gone replaced by biting reality

Kiss my ring my friend and pledge your fealty

Inspire me once again to get out of this slum

Hoist the flags, blow the bagpipes and roll the drum

Lets attack while they are still sleeping and have our fun

Lets retreat then, lull them into a trap when they come to run

The mind is the weapon and the weapons are the mind

Ignore the living but never a dead comrade behind

Lets hack the internet lets hack whatever we can find

Today weakness is the same as to be kind

Ones and zeroes are the only honest things we know

Somedays we soar fast somedays we glide slow
