A-to-Z Be-Race
A credit for his
or all
of US
Had seen colors first
an' a lack-a-glory
a non-glowing invisible bush
in the middle
where der once was space
an sworn was either
a moveable thorn
in the stripe
or a legitimate
inhabiting space.

For his planning of the squares bricks
a guide
as a step stone
to the rest of the good place.

A zebra of black and white
Dark and light
Hypothesis and antithesis
Good and bad
and evil seen good
good seen bad
and bad seen evil
hypothetical thesis
an eno plasmic reticulum
an even an' odd
endo existence
neuronal excitation
a dullard date
or a moon race
postponed till late... night one night
a dark nite a knighted a light
at midnight
in an assumed darken
non-reflecting area
of the black and white ZEBRA STRIPES
and found as a pirate
alone with gold
that the black was
black and white

An asked and pursued
what 'ere had been spoke of first
what was not a zebra
but was actually
in an all white lighted space ...

...within an enlightened dark place
had been reflected back
a dark and white area from space

Had seen the same
black and white
Thought was all the same
to any one as was
to him too
As any black or white
Was all the same
with respect to anyone
the differences
of any two things
seen close or afar
as exactly the same

colors in name

A bush has been planted deep into the stripes in the black area, as in the blue, is rooted and has been there too deeply rooted and cannot get itself out even when dosed with hot boiling water.

Will it see the light as in the white that is just one line away? No.

For now it is too deeply rooted into black mud, like a person got both feet into the mud as solid as a cement block and cannot get himself out, so the bush MUST continue on standing there in the dark area within the black stripe and must endure scalding hot water poured down on it, does not know how to get itself out.

It is impossible for it to get itself out of there as all the neighbouring plants die when bush led them into what it perceives as "glory", but in fact it was a darkened stripes.

Not much glory is there left now. Can't really do much...except that the bush is just standing there - rooted in the bloody mud.

Sandie Angel :o)
