SWINGS

30 Jul

In the vast farmlands,In the cramped cities,
Color of orchids,Plain grey,slack.
The sound of morning birds,
Merciless blowhorns & rattles..
Talks of knowledge,
Controversial gossip.

Melodious ragas & chants,Head banging of rocks bands-wild romance.
Beneath the blue carpet,Above the carbon monoxide;
Thoughts running wild into the sun,
Others of white blood & dagger hold.

Cries’ of a new born,silence at a funeral.
Celebrations of festivals,Murder,crime,rivals.
Facets of the earth- sun,snow,spring
Volcanoes,autumn,tornadoes’ swing.
Lustre of platinum ,of gold-
Apartheid and its ghastly woes..

Clinker of bells singing temple song;
Sound of death on the bang of a gong.
Love,kisses,sex;
The warrior is hurt-laid to rest;(the end of his strife.)
Her naked,sensous,angelic form-
“Ay a bitch!We’ll have her torn;(she’ll be my wife!)”

Engulf, Endure ;
Hollow me fill…..so i sink.
