In this prison without bars, this illusion,

wisdom had left for desire and false hope

and all that is dark amongst strangers.

Along a path strewn with broken

memories, hanging from the Judas tree

screaming for vengeance.


Lies, upon lies, upon lies

like gathering clouds

in ever darkening skies.


Creating fear, upon fear, upon fear

Chip and pin, GPS, microchip kids,

got us tagged, eroding our liberties

that much is clear.


“What foppery is this?”

Truth is broadcasting on another frequency.


I have seen the unseen world

and spoke to the salamander

who bade me not disturb

the ‘Tawny Eyed’ dream stealer

who bathes in the Black Sun


“Screw you” said I, “your game is up,

for we are infinities of possibilities,

free thinkers, who give our love freely,

we are all and we are one

and will not succumb”.


P Williams©2006

"Coming of Age"

"Lies, upon lies, upon lie
like gathering clouds
in ever darkening skies"
Quite an interesting write!
I also agree with the motto on your bio.

I particularly admire the power of the last stanza, Paul. Very well stated, my friend. Love and peace to you,

The GPS Sparky radar could see it a comin'! Coming of Age wades into Truth up to its fattened flanks! How many pigs were put into the tomb to feed the emperor? Precise word organization, Paul...

Oh, BRAVO Paul! A breath of fresh mountain air! Really clears away the fetid stench from the accumulated mounds of rotting human waste befouling our breathing (and hence, thinking) space.
Thank you for having the courage to post this resonate, timely piece, POET!

I always new I was tuned out.
Powerful, and a subtle intelligent rant type thingy...

No loss of innocence quite so brutal as unforgiving disillusionment and no claim to selfhood quite so powerful as raging against the same. A beautifully brilliant and brilliantly beautiful work. Much gratitude for the sharing:-)

An excellent in-your-face refusal to bow to the powers that be, Paul!

'we are infinities of possibilities...' love it!

Deep views on the intricacies of modern cyber space and laws that govern, I like this, we shall overcome.

A man after my own heart Paul - well at times, when I am not gushing romantic drivel and convoluted mind puzzles.

A wise and insightful sage of a write with the overtones of a frustrated prophet.

"What foppery is this?" INDEED! Good job!

In fraternity ...

Bravo! I love this fantssy in reality poem Paul! each line is powerful! "Truth is broadcasting on another frequency" This line is exactly what's happening today! Exceptional!

WOW!! I can both see and hear you recite this, Paul, (my privilege!!) and it is POWERFUL. For all your jovial flipness, you do "serious" and "deep" very well. This is a mind of a truly great thinker at work and your sonorous tones here spell out the message... "L-I-S-T-E-N.... I MEAN WHAT I SAY"... I like a good eye-ballin from time to time... this one stopped me in me tracks... On the other hand... you up for a party??????? :)) Too damn right you are... Poole Harbour or bust... BTW "What foppery is this?" Truth is broadcasting on another frequency.... BRILLIANT!! I like! LOL K xx
