The Blood Journey

July 31, 2012

The Blood Journey

As you
step ahead

There is
a man
ahead

Splashin his
blood out

Stoppin you
from your
journey

He just
came back

From a
big panther

Waitin in
the jungle

To no
avail

He says
your path
ahead

Must you
die

Please go
back

There is
no hope

For any
of us

You make
the step
anyway

Only to
disappear
forever

A tale
of a
man

No one
knows
about

Caution: This might be all theory

 

 

 

Hunger All Night

Hunger All Night

The future
flows into
the past

And the
present man

Wonderin about
his next
meal

The man
at the
top

And in
the distant
past

Of your
memory

Workin to
bring out
wonders

You sittin
in the
corner

Wonder where
your next
meal is
gonna come
from

The villager
you met
a decade back

Runs faster
than you

Beats you
to the
chicken

You lay
hungry all
night

Caution: This might be all theory

Journey to Nowhere

July 31, 2012

Journey to Nowhere

Travellin far
n wide

Destination unknown
and nowhere
to go

You got
a pocket
of money

And no
one around

The energy
drippin

You with
a beard

People askin
you to
go away

Everywhere you
step

Man, this
is a journey
to nowhere

You turn
back

A slap
on your
face

Fallin in
the hole

You just
wish

This wasn’t
me

Man, what
you gonna
do

Caution: This might be all theory

The Age of Big Wheel

July 30, 2012

The Age of Big Wheel

Ohh, what
an age

Parrots &
Spiders

Become planes
and movies

Life spinnin
away from
Nature

Into the
metal

From the
Big Bang

The dust
which came

You must
immerse into
it

This is
Nature

And the
man behind
his machine

No rest,
no love
in between

What you
eat, you
must give
out

Only from
your mind

Ohh, what
an age

Books and
trees

Become TV
& spoons

Caution: This might be all theory

 

 

 

Man or Nun

July 30, 2012

Man or Nun

You all
broken

From bones
to blood

Nature says
“Once More
Boy”

Or you
are a
Nun

Man, this
just ain’t
life

It was
to be

Games &
Movies

Girls with
frills

And the
vast kingdom
of merry

Out comes
a light

From the
dark mountains

A cheetah
huntin for
the little
one

You make
a run

Back again
to the
metal

The Modern Bed Time Story

The Olympics
come home

It’s a
race

To the
finish

Behind the
curtains

The other
games

Of truth
and perseverance

Some mixed
with honesty

The other
with drugs

Everythin in
the stadium

The story
of Gladiator
& Spartacus

Once again
told to
the world

You watch
it in
TV

Looks good
with the
fries

Four years
of blood
and sweat

Of Lewis
& Phelps

You take
on your
bed

The Shark

July 29, 2012

The Shark

Under the
shadow of
elders

You could
always see
tomorrow

As they
wean away

And you
mushroom

Into a
fine lad

You learn
from your
falls

There is
always

A Smart
fish around

To hook
you up

You wanna
take the
slow

And the
long route
of the
bus

To your
journey

A fast
car zooms
by

And you
fall again

The unrest
in you

Takin you
apart

Piece by
piece

And finally
to
your 6ft hole

Caution: This might be all theory
