School

school-bus-top

School

They lie to you at school,


To make of you a fool


They really only want you,


For the labor pool,


They only teach you stuff,


They think you ought to know,


When you’ve learned enough,


It’s time for you to go,


Now you have to work,


There is no time for play,


You simply cannot shirk,


If you want to earn your pay.

Wabi Sabi

Wabi Sabi
My darling you’re imperfect,
1
In every single way,
1
You have the kind of smile,
1
That darkens any day,
1
You frighten little children,
1
When they come out to play,
1
Your countenance is glorious,
1
Your anger to inveigh,
1
Your temperament's notorious,
1
But I love you anyway.

Wabi Sabi is a comprehensive Japanese world view, or aesthetic, centred on the acceptance of transience. The aesthetic is often characterised as one of beauty that is "imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete" - One of its central precepts is that imperfection is itself beautiful. I thought I'd take this concept and stretch it a little...

The Demon Weed

The Demon Weed

The Demon Weed

They say the demon weed,

Is very bad indeed,

It can’t be very good for you,

That much I will concede,

But when you need to chill,

It provides a secret thrill,

You won’t find nowhere else,

Unless you take a pill,

So when you next light up,

As you surely will,

Make sure that you don’t stop,

Until you get your fill.

The Kingdom Of Heaven

heaven-03

The Kingdom of Heaven

As small as a mustard seed,

Shining like a beacon,

In our time of need,

When we're down and beaten,

And for mercy we plead,

Our internal Brahman,

Will supply the lead,

To banish any demon,

And remind us of our creed,

The theist or the pagan,

His message must heed,

The kingdom of heaven,

Is very close indeed,

For it is in the heart,

That heaven does accede.

A Lullaby

lovers

Lullaby

Rest you head upon my shoulder,

I will sing a lullaby,

Sweeter than the scent of clover,

Softer than a baby's sigh,

Now that the day is over,

Darkness takes the evening sky,

I am laying with my lover,

I feel that paradise is nigh.

Winter’s Gone

Winters Gone

Precious one,

Best your fears,

Let the Sun,

Dry your tears,

Have some fun,

Fill your ears,

With nature’s song,

For Summer nears,

And winter’s gone.

a

Heart

    pulsing and racing

                       my fingers

                               tracing

the contours

               of your hips 

and up

               your thighs

to where              

                  your

sweet pink

                blossom

                                          lips

                     are waiting

sip by sip

                 I could drink

                                 you up

like a hummingbird

            your sex

                        nectar to my lips

come to me now

          

  and we shall every

                    sensual pleasure 

                                          prove

and underneath

                        cool white sheets

we’ll make the Earth   

                                       to move

Pyro

House_Fire 

The house is dark,

I am too,

Inky black,

Through and through,

If I had a match,

Here’s what I’d do,

I’d burn it down,

With me in too,

Just give me,

Some gasoline,

I’ll show you,

What I mean,

You can watch,

As the flames,

Grow higher,

I’ll light the sky,

With my funeral pyre.

Since You’ve Been Gone

 3367688

1

My heart she sings,

A mournful song,

Each morning brings,

A requiem erelong,

That’s all she ever sings,

Since you’ve been gone,

1

A darker soul,

I have become,

When you left,

You took the sun,

There’s been no light,

Since you’ve been gone,

1

The bed’s too big,

The clock’s are wrong,

My days are nights,

My nights too long,

I’ve had little sleep,

Since you’ve been gone,

1

Nothing is right,

Everything is wrong,

Black is white,

Right is wrong,

It’s been that way,

Since you’ve been gone.

Book Of Dreams

lindisfarne_1

1

My book of dreams,

Burst open at the seams,

All it’s leaves have scattered,

On the summer breeze,

I ran around for ages,

Scooping up the pages,

But even as I toiled,

The pages were despoiled,

Who would have ever thought,

That all would come to naught,

The pages stick together,

So I will read them never,

My pages are torn and tattered,

It’s as if they never mattered,

The leaves are so contorted,

Their meaning is distorted,

And every treasured dream,

Now seems to me obscene.

Home Made Mind

!

mind

1

I built this mind,

I think you’ll find,

That it’s unique,

It’s one of a kind,

I made it using books,

And other kinds of stuff,

It was so very hungry,

It couldn’t get enough,

My mind is fast and furious,

It’s very highly tuned,

And it is ever curious,

Of knowledge it’s exhumed,

I built this mind myself,

It’s not just off the shelf,

I’m the one who did the work,

With no help from no-one else.

Requiem # 1

grave_021

Did you take our love,

And build a funeral pyre?

Did you shed one single tear,

When you lit the fire?

Did you smear your cheeks,

With the ashes of desire?

I Remember

texture-sogabe

1

I remember,

Sweet and tender,

The nights of love,

We spent together.

1

I recollect,

The night we met,

The passions spent,

With no regret.

1

I reminisce,

About your kiss,

And how your lips,

Brought me bliss.

 1

I recall,

Most of all,

How love held us,

In her thrall.

 

I celebrate,

Your memory,

But often I wonder,

If you remember me.

After They Make Love

 

Herb

1

What do people -

who don’t smoke weed

- do after they make love?

Do they sit and have a read?

Or drink cocoa from a mug?

Do they say ‘goodnight my dear’

- and settle for a hug?

1

I like to share a spliff,

And when it’s at an end,

We’re feeling good,

We’ve had a lift,

We do it all again.

Heaven Or Hell?

hieronymus_bosch_-_the_garden_of_earthly_delights_-_hell

They say the fires of hell,

Exude an awful smell,

The accommodation’s poor,

And the service stinks as well,

Is hell just in the mind?

Or is it something more?

A place where you will find,

Devils armed with pitchforks,

Roasting your behind,

A place of tortures infernal,

Reserved for just your kind,

Where sorrows are eternal,

And no sun will ever shine,

Where in pallid mute disgrace,

Lost sinners stand in line,

The horror etched on every face,

Engraved there for all time.

1

My notions are more mundane,

But I’ll share them all the same,

I say hell is only in the brain,

Your demons are the same,

You carry them inside,

The cause of so much pain,

But still you let them guide,

For reasons you can’t explain,

And from yourself you hide,

It’s you who stokes the flames,

That poison your insides,

Be it heaven or be it hell,

It’s really all the same,

It’s up to us to choose,

There is so very much to gain,

And nothing of worth to loose.

When The Shit Hits The Fan

WhiteFan 

!

When the shit hits the fan,

It goes all over the place,

If you got no plan,

It’s a daunting task to face,

You’ll do what you can,

You’ll get by in any case,

But let me one piece of advice impart,

Switching off the fan,

Is the place to start.

The Infinite And Radiant IS

 

polaris_drk

The infinite and radiant IS,

Kindly blew me a kiss,

She introduced herself,

And then she told me this;

Everything that was,

And everything that is,

It’s all the property of,

The infinite and radiant IS!

Natural Man

 mankind

1

I’m a natural man – that’s what I am,

I’ve been so since the world began,

I’m the lion and the lamb,

The victor and the also ran,

I am day and I am night,

I am ying and I am yang,

I am the darkness and the light,

I am the song the angels sang,

When god banished the eternal night,

And the universe began.

Psalm – Minus Zero

Salvador_Dali_Cross

Wild dogs have compassed me,

They’ve tied me to my totem pole,

I struggle, but can’t get free,

They’re going to devour me whole,

That’ll be the end of me,

They’ll consume my very soul,

1

I have been poured out,

All my dreams are shattered,

My heart is laden with doubt,

All my beliefs have scattered,

And I can’t seem to figure out,

If  they ever really mattered.

Eclipsed

solar-eclipse

the blood in my veins

is black as liquid night

it stains my broken heart

and it blinds my sight

so that I’m condemned

to live without the light

my habits are nocturnal

the night my only friend

the darkness is eternal

it’s reign will never end

she’s majestic and infernal

your soul she’ll gladly rend

I try to escape the darkness

but she gets me in the end
