Metropolis


 

Brick and mortar conspiracy – booth doth

Disease of the brain reflected in glass panes

Millions and millions of parasites ass tight

Asphalt wilderness – desert within its means

Sweet insecurity, hovering, infectious drain

Daily mechanical uproar – polluted dream

Pavement oysters - $1,000 fine; vomit for free


Fuddled masses weaving - tattered garment

Mayoral decisions – unsophisticated grieves

Muggings, shootings – fear dark as the night

Disparate theme – water thicker than blood

Evasive alien seeds germinate in the concrete

Covered in smog and sweat-covered pavement

Corruption is the knife – a scalpel the un-seam

On the streets, Strongest bond - a quiet tongue

Swollen population has one soul – phosphorus

Fear a catalyst, ignites, bringing in the sheaves

When 1 dies, exiled – no longer in a living hell

Disappears from nothingness – insanity to sane

The Circle of loneliness 180’s – death reprieved.

Millions and millions of parasites ass tight

Wow! What a profound statement, and what a poem. Mother Earth would be pleased - I think she truly tires of us parasites these days.

Huge break from your usual romance and heartache venue but certainly just as effective. Your words take a political stance and demand attention. Well done Tinka old friend.

Dark yet perceptive of the failure of our "culture" to nourish the "human" spirit. Meaningful and hard hitting write, Tinka.

Best damn poem you have written . . . Maybe ever. You came out of left field with this and I am so glad you did. This is nothing less than brilliant. Bowled me over.
Reviewed by Peter Paton 2/11/2006
You paint the grim picture which is endemic to our seedy, seamy downtowns, where one struggles to survive against the odds, and yet even there can be found angels and saints living a daily Mother Teresa life, eking out a painful living, and dedicated to helping those less able than themselves.
Very insightful and disturbing write Tinks
Love that gyroscope like pic too !

And yet there is a light in the sanctuary of a loved ones arms...
The world is insane, slowly driven to destruction by the hand of mankind... Banished from enlightenment on the pursuit of selfish greed and hatered of all that is not understood. Love the only saving grace to our existence.

Tremendous write... truth rings through your verse

Very deep insightful write!
Reviewed by Leland Waldrip 2/11/2006
Dearest Tink:
You must have toured the seamy side to grind out this litany of cause and effect. And it's well-ground out I might add. Captures the ugliness and traverses back to reprieve. Quite an interesting theme, set to the tune of "Downtown."
Love and [[[[[[[[[[[[hugs]]]]]]]]]]]]]]
