A True Tale

Did you hear the cacophony,
Of men burly ‘n’ wearing tights,
Who swore by common ancestry,
In mature yet mindless fights?

Over sour ale did they chatter,
Questioning the fancy regime,
That gave not a full platter,
But doses of a hollow dream.

Their fists they banged with might,
While the tapers flickered with fear,
To an uprising that was alight,
For castigating the pitiless royal tier.

With pitchforks, axe and spade,
The bastion they stormed in a flurry,
With a war cry of profound hate,
As the horizon blazed with fury.

“Execute ‘em all”, they roared,
Dashing the china to smithereens
Stagecoaches and satin all burned,
Ending the loathsome regal reigns.

Freedom

A million hopes I envisage,

A thousand dreams I sketch,

Boundless and limitless in my heart

Spontaneous optimisms I etch.

 

Across the briny blue ocean,

I sail at will, no charts to guide,

To lands that pirates don’t dare,

Sails and squalls, I no longer abide. 

 

Unchained melody of my heart,

I sing with absolute informality,

Neither notes, nor timbres to follow,

Carefree of any crude mockery.

 

Lost in my lover’s sweet caress

I free my restrained passions

Love rhythms creating pure music,

Liberating my flimsy moral conscience.

 

Like the breeze wafting with ease,

I float across without strife,

As free as the spirits of Eden,

Away from the circle of life.
