Secret of the Mortician

The Secret of the Mortician

Dead, but I got eyes
Prepares my body at the morgue
Opens the chest
Drains the blood from its nudity
Admires my body before it decays

After The process of embalming
His hands run all over
I'm still dead
He's satisfied

The next day 
Writes an outstanding obituary 
I sit on display

The tigress' mark

She prowls the night
with clenched jaw and pride,
nothing able to smite
her remorseless stride.

The ominous reflection of moon 
shines forth from devouring eyes
of a nocturnal beauty spun on the loom
of the Creator's bid and sighs.

Grace moves her every limb
and she precedes an enraged scream
caused by ruins of a forest now grim
and held alive by all but one stream.

Her claws prophesy of vengeance 
though her heart yearns for reconciliation.
Yet now there would be no leniency 
for a soul's annihilation. 

Now on journeys through lush valleys and ashes
she will embark
until all that remains after furious thrashes
will be the tigress' mark.

Love for someone,

Sorrow is my companion now,
Why do you tears your drowsy?
The happiness you have received,
The realization of the world of sorrow.

Life has listened to me,
Why do you co-exit?
Love you all,
We all hate hatred.

Sorrow is my companion now,
Why do you tears your drowsy?

Everyone broken my heart,
Why do you do me love?
Why do you want us everything?
We have given everything to us only punishment.

Sorrow is my companion now,
Why do you tears your drowsy?
The happiness you have received,
The realization of the world of sorrow.

ghastly gluttony 
one of seven deadly sins
with appalling good reasons

such self disrespect 
abusing one's own body
that wonderful mechanism

no remorse no thought
millions starving and dying
balancing haves and have nots

Reclaim Your Domain

I wish I could plug
A flash drive in your ear.
I would wipe clean the worries
Hidden deep inside there.

I know they've been hiding
In camouflaged space.
Your very own virus
firmly in place.

Spreading infection
Every which way.
Squeezing the happy
Right out of the way.

It's time to recover,
To diminish the pain.
Pick up your tools,
Reclaim your domain.

Before long, I promise,
With daily scans,
You'll reboot and function
With plenty of ram.

Death By Meth

The cause of his death 
Because he chose to do meth 
He started out with a line 
But it was no longer fine 
He started to smoke in a glass bowl 
He knows hes loosing his soul 
Feeling not one emotion
With the impulse of another notion
He desires to put it on a spoon 
Cooking it not to quick but not to soon 
He places it into the needle sticks it in him arm 
Starting to cause major bodily harm 
Instantly hes enjoying his high 
But doesnt even get to say goodbye 
Death decides its his time to go 
Just a thought...
But maybe he should have said

The Future Starts Here

The innocence is transfusing
and overturning 
the goat skin drums
children of the mills,
children of the junkyard,
and savaging
and we keep filling them with
mercury, nitrate, espestice, baby bombs
blasted out of their shaved heads
and foraging

Their eyes oases,
How  shock they bury in tons-
Rots in high places

Step after step I move forward.
Into the abyss, 	
Into the pit
Black, thick, silent,
The pool is filled
 Yet the tar is so bleak and empty.
Fully submerged there is nothing, 
Nothing but me
Nothing to smell hear or see
So I focus on me
My weaknesses
My faults
My mistakes
I feel all the pain as the air leaves my lungs
As the pressure of all that I’ve done bears down upon my chest and back.
Bones bend and muscles contract.
That last bit of air
 Right before sweet eternal sleep
 Escapes into the darkness
And for that moment the pain stops and the pressure fades…
I am cold.
I am lost.
Floating back to the top…
I inhale 
And life is restored…until next time.

Haiku 16: Bokoharam

'Boko Haram' is not an enemy.
It's a subject in an economy
of a corrupt country.

Gone But Not Forgotten

I remember it now
Not all, but enough
To understand how
I am afraid to accept love

Because some love hurts
Especially the kind you gave
The kind nobody deserves
The kind that plants the seed of hate

It matters little if you feel remorse
Your guilt could never ease my pain
The damage you did cannot be reversed
I still wear the residue of shame

And you will never have my forgiveness
My hatred will be your only companion
As you lie upon your deathbed
Feeling frightened and abandoned

You still won't even have my pity
Pathetic as you are
All you will ever be is what you did to me
As I will always bear these ugly scars

Once A Poplar

Passive and watching, 
caught up in the crowd,
with chanting and torches,
all screaming so loud.

The wailing of women,
a pouting young child,
a rope o’er my shoulder,
eyes murderous and wild.

Hooded the ghouls,
in pristine white cloth.
Battered the young man,
in bloody red froth.

All this commotion
is horror and fright
The rope on my shoulder...
they’re drawing it tight.

Gasping and choking
and kicking of feet,
hollers and cheering,
the act is complete.

Oh, how did this happen?
It wasn’t to be.
I once was a poplar;
now the lynching tree.

The End Day

At the day of tribulations'  
Reckless deeds and end
            Of time
Your consternation
       Beguiles' me
And is relative to me
     The Lord is He
The maker of mammon
  Hath made his bound
           Of inequity
The trove and treasure
          Of the unholy
Which the unholy of thee
      Shall never resist

Never So Gracious

A full moon night to my delight what is so wrong with doing what's right nothing is right after so long no use in complaining time to move on The Dream Water one day might take me away farther from the comfort of familiarity I float on my back then shut my eyes my body now sinking into ocean arms open wide Now swallow your son back to his nature when he is no longer needed to stay here the next generation are dooming themselves they need my experience to guide them through hell Why should I bother on my own, I strive through I turn my back on the thought of bothering to save you alone in this world my, is it spacious I'm finally smiling, never so gracious.

Death by Gossip


            I am here for the pain 
            yes I am entertained

            a public hanging my choice
            living amongst rules I use my voice

            the tongue is sharp as a finished blade   
            my one reason to make you afraid

            pleasure is mine to spread all within a crowd
            To hang , draw and quarter your soul allowed

             gathering a crowd is easy to find
             for many like I are here that threw you aside .

My head hurts, my chest pounds
The men with guns all around
They frighten me, standing tall
I watch them, as they line us on a wall
One by one my heart clenches
As I see my people fall
And I know that I am next
Now the people watch, and their hearts clench
As I fall.

Rise Blood Hunter

Fee fi fo fum
The smell of blood and rum
As on the giants abode
Legends were foretold
As wolves stand as packs
To kill and attack
A hero rises
From the flames
From the ashes
Rise blood hunter
Rise from doom
Rise from scourge
Rise above them all

Where people die
A painful death
And corpses left
Stacked aside
Never buried

As monsters walk
Among us
As the walk
Goes slower
And blood gets thicker
By this moment you might be
Yes you might be dead

With blades side by side
Rise blood hunter
And slay them all
Rise from doom
Rise from scourge
Rise above them all.

Wild horses running free

Wild horses running free

Hearts without conscience                                   
scarred with a brand of evil                                   
like wild horses running free                                   
no reins to stop killing spree

Suicide Bombers

Those who kill innocents are cruel,
Their bodies will always be hell’s fuel,
Islam teaches about honor and dignity,
Care and love for the whole humanity,
But black sheeps are found everywhere,
Like KKK or Taliban, “Be aware”,
They do things on their own,
Their very own people, they disown.

Hit and Run

A hit and run
A masquerade
It's just my lot now to be played.
A little daft
A bit too large
Never one to just take charge.
Way too kind
And silent too
Perfectly convenient for passing through
Go ahead
Try it out
This girl feels pain but she won't shout
Hit and run
Have some fun
Don't look behind you when you're done.
