The Star's SestinaWe always have watched the night skyThe Star's Sestina by ArtCrusade
Eager to prove the existence of God.
We try to find answers in the star's light.
Tommorow unveiled by our zodiac,
A God-given warden who guards our sleep
And wishful thinking fulfilled by the stars.
As children we thought that stars
Consisted of cheese attached to the sky.
As youngsters we knew that during our sleep
We could save the world and shake hands with God;
As adults we learned that our zodiac
Is but a group of stars that reflect light.
Hearts are torches. They pump light
Through our veins like a thousand shooting stars.
If 'Doubt' was a sign of the zodiac
A veil would block our gaze towards the sky;
The giving hand would not be that of God
And nightmares haunt us when we seek for sleep.
Dreams that find us when we sleep
Match the ones that we follow in day's light.
One can draw strength from believing in God
Or explore the future by watching stars,
But the answers lie far below the sky
Where mankind once made up the zodiacs.
The Wild WestSwathed in retributionThe Wild West by Holophite
Malice smoulders beneath the brim.
Rottweiler of the Elite
The beast yanks on its chain.
Urban collars starched white by agency
Toss its beasts Toyota morsels
Between flogs of the whip
Knowing Debt's servile bits cut deep.
Boiling malevolence tears through the dust
Sickness and turnover stretch manpower
and fearful silence gnaws at the minions
As efficiency tightens its noose.
A two-speed economy:
Resources and Amphetamine.
Artificially stimulated markets
...and their participants.
Flap giddily in social circles
Fluent in Twitter rhetoric
But safely distant from The Point.
Living costs spiral,
sharks swim the waters.
Politicians brandish cheap chinese hooks
And pose for the camera.
Homes fill with youths
Driven from schools by dysfunction
The schools trawled by predators
Making prey of breeding whales.
Long term consequences for short term policies.
Long term commitments for short term incomes.
Pressure-cooker schools and prisons
Beast And MachineBeast And MachineBeast And Machine by DraganTheMighty
Man and machine,
Together as a team,
It's a necessary evil,
for the golden crown,
Beast and machine,
The undefeated sin,
It's gonna spread all over,
Heading to the throne!
WHEN I WAS YOUNGWHEN I WAS YOUNGWHEN I WAS YOUNG by DraganTheMighty
Once upon a time,
When I was young,
I believed our world is nice.
When I was young...
I thought I was the faulty one,
A parasite, a virus,
so sick and so hideous
I was asking so much,
always more than my lunch
"All these goodies, not enough?
What is more you need to laugh?"
When I was young,
I believed our world is nice
I felt, I was the broken one...
So I was shy, very shy
When I should and when I shouldn't...
I was so silly, stupid!
I thought I'm asking so much!
More than I need for lunch!
And if it happened to need more,
I would never ask it for.
But now I've grown so much,
little shame for my lunch,
Some they say, no shame at all,
that I'm out of control.
But now I've grown so much...
I always ask it for!
There's no shame, No more!
