Reserved but Cannot be Forgotten

A blessed soil which perspires cashews and coughs out black pepper, its global banner of rice is raised so high which is only beaten by one. Specializing in the juices of the commonest limbless reptile with cuisines highly recommended by the parliaments of health. From dragons to birds; the turtle to the horse; the minds of its people have well been bonded to these, making historians marvel at which exactly helped in denting the American military pride.

MONT BLANC? YOUR RIGHT TO WRITE !

You’ll  trip on this mountain,
 using its ball point or fountain. 
 And in less than a wink it will make you to think, 
of a myriad ways to using your ink. 
A star black and white, not shining and bright,  
Trusted for excellence, it compels you to write. 
From the crack of dawn, till late into night, 
Makes you keep writing, till you get it just right.

Wilderness In The Rainforest

It is a tree of five hundred one and twenty different fruits with nine others totally disenfranchised in a garden of more than a colour of grapes a black bunch out of every five same is its numerical contribution in such defined location A flowing stream, originating from the Nok aboriginals has created different hundreds of tributaries in its inland is a town where fertility is ambidextrous and the most diversified of the colourful flying beauties is found within its territory A family possessing envious wealth but seemingly a myth b’cos of the Mephistophelian deeds of its guardians its house, built on land where toothpick germinates to a monstrous tree and man power capable of producing half a continent of sky scrapers yet six out of every ten of its members are less comfortable than a pet in the west

Rainforest in the Wilderness

Westernmost in its regional placement and traditional identity, rare but indigenous is its Arabian flavour, and a significant bridge of peace between its brothers and their common enemy. Displays an open tradition, appreciative of diabolism as witches are integral part of its cultural settlements. Typical of its nucleus is a combination of minarets structured worship centers, Bazaars, sections called medinas and lasbali fortresses. Its riches in wood stored up through the Atlas mountains has milked its way from the dashboards of the Rolls Royce brand and its possession of the “mother of all flowers” has given the French creative experts a reason to fancy the world. Public bath are greatly preferred to private ones to flatter socialization in shrines of ritual purification. Its rare ideology in liver displacing the heart in love’s symbolism gives a perceived cosmic effect of its cute uniqueness. The “assembly of the dead” and the Tomb of John the Baptist are hugely important in its global historic relevance. Just the way Aid al-kebir is held highly so also is handling of food with the right hand and as well in the acceptance of offered meat. The glory of such a symbolic geography never stay silent because the constant whispers of its honour, despite not a continental union member is evidenced by its official friendship to the world power which is the first ever, among hundreds of many more.

Unquestionable Integrity

Morality’s general
with an intimidating aura 
and a commanding presence;
this charisma’s description 
is a single lane void of corners
written in a dictionary 
consisting of a single page.
Blamelessness so standardized 
to be empirical
and ruthless to liberalism.
Pragmatism functions but under 
the administration of apt discipline
with no chance for taste 
and appetite to have their says.

Lips when open
are gates for words of absolution.
Yeah and nay 
never exchanging importance
and with an illumination 
so exact and precise
that even distant acquaintances
can join in attestation 
of its attributes
to become a part of a bunch 
of its unsolicited witnesses.

Shoulders of personality
grow high above the heads temple
and character, steeply mountainous 
and impossible for compromise to climb.
Such dart hits same spot 
over and over again on the board;
such skin keeps to its attitude,
never longing to be tanned or bleached
what a wealthy tiny island 
so respected by its surrounding waters!

Pearl Of Africa

A Winston churchill’s declaration to a tiny nation situated in the dark continent due to its magnificence and sight capturing habitat only matched by the electrifying effect of its hospitality. A country where wealth has long made a short call and yet to return to where it is needed. Starvation on Boda-bodas, perambulating across its communities as a longing for good life is never satisfied. Yet happiness supersedes lack on a nation which is tree loving; a global competitor in Bananas, pineapples and Avocados and a home to extinction-kissing Gorillas. Satisfaction from pan fried grasshoppers equates the appetizing feel of Italian pizzas and Turkish Donas. Gender division of labour quite one-sided where men are roof installers and women, the actual builders. No wonder, female engineers and contractors have long attracted the norm in a society which is in love with Bicycles and buttoned by a twin dry seasons. Bwindi and Mhahinga are major game reserves but its stand out feature so unique is the simple fact it’s the youngest country in the globe with one in every two, fourteen or below.

Land of The kings

A name reflective of its traditional kingship is its identity, showcasing a cultural strength and heritage. A huge trader with an Asian giant is this land upholding the Kwanza like the Indian respect to its Rupee. Indifference is shown to the culture of tipping; substances like cigarettes can stand as replacement to cash. The semba is a mother influence to many others like the samba of Brazil and it has a zero tolerance approach towards its public structures and security zones. It is an epitome of the continent’s blessing in wealth and resources this land shakes hands with the black diamonds from beneath but once bowed its head to the rule of the Portuguese. Now standing as free as a large open space, yet still humiliated by the shackles of the African curse.

Family and Friends


Family, the enemy of our souls wants us to believe
The lie that we are alone
He wants us to believe
That we are treading hopeless road

But the cloud witnesses who urge us on
Tell us another story
The road we tread with light and beauty and fellowship
My friends, we are never alone

Solitude: To Yoda, An Ode

Green bark a prism creates,
Feel the pull of earth, you must.

Rotates, a slime of endless hates,
Can hold me not, this world’s crust.

Friendship’s ties, isolation Deflates,
Succumbs, my spaceship, to bitter rust.

Mist, my soul forever permeates,
Lift-off, booms the rocket’s thrust.

My spirit when light returns, elates,
Swamps swell, swallowed hope’s swirling dust.

Trapped, I am, until student from fate
Arrives to learn; Cloud City or bust.

Legs Still Running

I am so called the eastern kingdom who’s not exposed to the great waters but guided by surrounding civil allies and a onetime powerful authority whose staff has been completely crushed after the first global disaster caused by a twin fatal provocation in Yugoslavia. creating a stink in my past resulting to over a million cross overs. Great inheritance from the fleeing Turks opened up history to bless me with the initiation of the coffee house tradition. Owning the oldest zoo in the planet and taking the issue of death as a worthy and serious business keeps the legs of my existence comfortably crossed. My skin is rocky and my bones, full of natural ice carpeting winter with a trinity of sports and globally popularizing the world of the ice giants. I smile using the muscles of cake tradition, blown wide open by the rich chocolate Viennese sachertorte. I curse the bed for two above half a decade when a toast is lacking in eye contacts; so I made them believe. As a beautiful corpse is to a befitting burial so is an eighth of a liter to an entertaining drink. I’ve shown to the world the first woman associated with global recognition in the propagation of peace. I’m overweight amongst my peers making me still contemplate joining their forces. I live with a heavy tail with sharp hairs of undulating history; from a power center of an empire to a humble little republic. And the significance of the number 05 marking the Passover for the Angel of resistance. Having a body so pompous, a weighty tail will not suffer a drag such functions by the colours of personalities even though one caused historic massacre as a donated transplant to another body while another of its kind hit the heights of American cinema entertainment and made strides in its polity. Part of the roots of Hollywood was a trio from my own hands. From me is the founding father of psychoanalysis and the magical creation of luxurious cars. I recognized the first Doppler effect and one of my seed became the father of modern genetics. My head nods to the wonderful reception of “The Piano Teacher” as the world once danced to my rhythm of “Rock me Amadeus” from the instant fame of Katharina Schratt through the royal double mysterious deaths to the profitable ransom of Richard the Lionheart. My body has survived historic grit to keep my legs still running as one of the fastest growing global economies.

Speedily Developing Through the Machines of Perseverance

A teenager with the expressions of a middle age individual is the wonder-creating characteristic of its accelerating growth. Dwelling in a land not presented with natural gifts; it still beat all odds to be a member of the Asian Tigers and a competing contributor to its domain’s prosperity. The birth place to the Toilet theme amusement park and a camp of makeup obsessed men. The fourteenth day of every month is set aside in romance’s banquet except that of the fourth month when mourning becomes love’s pirate. February is for young men, march, three times for the ladies. Prides in the globally acknowledged Boryeona Mud Festival and gives socialization a new countenance in the “hoesik” event, while new standards in robotic technology is climaxed as prison guards, patrols, anti-jelly fish squad and teachers actively exist through exciting artificial intelligence. A humiliating public ritual in a form of crime reenactment, personality stereotypes emanating from the different blood groups, a nationwide superstitious repugnance to the red ink; very cultured to even create a backlash on Bill Gates’ presidential handshake; typify a people coming a long way from a turbulent past. A territory of very bright and brainy students; the god of the LG, Hyundai and Samsung among others; and to the largest church in size and congregants in the world. It is the well preserved garden where plastic surgery strives all to show an amazing growth once heavily stunted, suffering a suppression entertained by the comfort ladies; somehow causing a perspective towards the rising sun to be similar to the swastika’s view by the Jews. Despite the Japanese colonization, soviet meddling and North Korean threats, it’s still showing mental strength to be the world’s 12th largest trading Nation.

Life Of The Imagination

        Life Of The Imagination

Imagination has never had a bath or shower
It does not know of soap
Plays with itself for hours
Hanging from a rope
Hopes for handouts
There are no places it can’t go
In dirty crevasses in dark shadows
It takes chances with glass and wire
Wine becomes expired in its mind
Meandering with tigers, gliding off of stars, where parsecs spark 
Falls back into dark matter of inner space
Imagination visits here on Earth for merely seconds
Swings out to a nova blast without its nova cane
And again comes here to the home planet to drink square particles of rain
It named its first 10 children candy
None of them were sweet 
The next 10 he called Mortimer 
Bought them homes by buffer zones near Kansas 
On Christmas it lays Easter eggs on pine needles
Pine trees are used as tooth picks in all seasons
At Thanksgiving it pitches forks
Imagination has no fear of anything accept divorce
It writes the laws in crayon while dancing through the canyons
There are fleeting moments that can never pass beyond its grasp
There are things in space and time that even chance can’t handle
Sometimes Imagination takes me places
I really don’t want to go, without my sandals on
He is my friend but wakes me up at midnight
Places pen and paper in my hand and makes me work
While he just sits there counting sheep and eating candy
Remembering they were his children
None of them were sweet
I wish sometimes imagination would fall right off the Earth
After all, he’s the one who calls it flat
For what that’s worth

Growing Aroma of an Asian Pride

A confined territory with created identity from a spanish monarch since established, its badge with monkey eating eagles, large shopping malls; tropical fruits and coconut, dense population; Conus glorianus and the python Reticulatus gets heavier. Most defined Christian territory in its region and a global production hub for nursing care and services. This locality nurtures and perfects the services of text messaging writing on the wall of global discoveries through the mouse deer and other animal species most particular in the giant clams. It suffers from the blunt blade of human trafficking but this hasn’t stopped the continuous glow of its pride. Ranging from the biggest pair of shows ever, to the manila event of 2006; the discovery of an important antibiotic, or its global archipelago pride. Its power presence shown in Jelly fish lake or the Noche Buena, celebrated as the longest Christmas season. All these green lights visible to the planet never let its flag turn upside down again.

ODE TO HISTORY

There is a field where Sherman marched
Across the bloody South
Just beside a freeway, that connects it to the North
No one builds and no one plants on hallowed bloody ground
And late at night tis said there’s ghosts that hover all around

In the spring there’s beauty on this poor forgotten place
No one live remembers the men who died with grace
No cell phones or gadgets to escape the fear and dread
Letters lost or just delayed were part of war twas said

Brothers fighting brothers in a bloody senseless brawl
Shattering a country while a death rate took its toll.
Marching cross the U.S. burning towns just shortly built--
Lynching and destroying without a modicum of guilt.

Streamlined education doesn’t bother with “ancient” facts
Parents want a fast track deal –full deductions in their tax
Highlight education is the modern style—on line.
No room for the how’s and why’s –there simply isn’t time.

So, if you seek reflection in a conversation pit
Find an avid reader for a talk with any wit.

Born To Live-Difficult to Conquer

The birth place of world war II after an invasion void of any declaration. Stamps on history’s book by feminine hands to ascertain the first death sentence of the same human disaster. A time frame marked its stolen identity signifying its absorption into the world map when three neighbouring nations rolled dices on its existence. Roman Catholicism is advertised by the sun in this place where it’s the pioneer of oil refinery and the continent’s most important reproductive clinic to border-crossing summer birds. The father of Europe in king Kazimierz Jagiellonczyk married off his three seeds of fertility who were carrying rich humus to the germination of Europe’s greatest dynasties. Another king flatters history when he re-based back to his origin to honour a coronation conflicting the poles’ election. The heart of the world of European Jews where their rescue during the holocaust was second to none where the first artificial language, created and sustained; and having a patriot decorated five times on physical masculinity. It is the home to the famous Nicolaus Copernicus and the birth place of the globally applauded Marie Curie. The last will and testament of the expiring country marks the first European constitutional state. The underground salt cathedral is significant in its global age ranking. The Bialowieza Primeral, epitomizes the continent’s last ancient forest and the piwnica Swidnilka ranks the first in the pride of the continent’s aged restaurants. Its historic medicinal use of vodkas and the blossom to the stem end direction of peeling Bananas ready for consumption beautifies the grit of a nation which stood firm even after a forty and three attempts of invasion.

Many Flowers, Few Thorns

Sheltered in the south of the south, its culture breathed out the dance of love to the world. Once established, as the historic natural park for gigantic dinosaurs with the earth’s tail attached to its field and a familiar friend to continental extremities both in elevations and in the measure of cold and heat. Even with its tender voice and closed influence its hands have contributed to the beautiful jewelries of the globe’s spark. The first scores of Cristiani’s animation and pioneering crime’s neck breaker through the Axe of finger-printing; also a well watered green yard for cosmetic manipulations but yet marred with Anorexia and battles of the mind. So much flowers with few thorns classify this blessed home with sons like Diego and Lionel.

the nature of success

The Nature of Success. 

On an old tank ship that was so slow it felt as
we were suspended in time, a world shrunk 
only us the ocean and the rhythmic hear beat 
of the engine… and when the ship birthed, at 
some god forsaken refinery, we felt overcome 
by shyness seeing so many strange faces. 

It was on a ship like this I met the third officer
a young man with literary ambitions, and he
succeeded on Norway´s modest literary tree. 
Often interviewed, asked awkward questions 
about writing and why he writes like it should 
be a hidden formula.

I´m glad for his triumph, yet there is a sting in
my heart, not of rancor, but of sadness…never 
having received the clarion call of acceptance.
Collections after collections have been rejected.
I feel as I have been suspended in a fool´s time,
only the sea and me and the shore is far away.

More than just a Habitat

The home of mankind and makind’s favourite drink existing in a size bigger than spain and france combined with its new flower, a diplomatic capital of its continent and a paradise for vegetarians having the tastiest, healthiest and most diverse cuisine in its regions. It has a cycle more than the regular year-timing and one of only two territories never to be dominated. This home is of its own original Alphabet consisting of unique symbols and a continental pride of its first ever Olympic Gold medal. Aligns itself with members of the class of highest capitals with more than twice the continental stony landscapes in its possession and a detailed recognition far away from outer-space on the great rift valley situated right in its heart, all coming from this abode where the black Jews originated. Its natural heritage is most appreciated and recognized amongst its peers and the dwelling place to the last surviving species of ancient grazing primates holding commanding claims to the biblical covenant Ark and commandments are the sub-units of its pride spanning a long time scale which is unfortunately altered by the common affliction affecting all the settlers of its entire large neighbourhood.

Originating From the Sun

That’s what she calls herself who boasts of the longest reigning monarchy in the world, producing a short of one to twenty Nobel Prize winners as only two colleagues beat her to global wealth. Her buttocks sit on the red hot coal of the deadly pacific ring of fire. Her cultural and innovative influence, already clinging on global corners with their webs. The sushi, sashimi and the tempura; the karate, judo, sumo and ninjutsa; the Toyota, Sony, Nintendo, canon and Panasonic, all testaments of her hands of influence. She’s a home to over six thousand pieces resting on large waters to stay as one. Three-fourth of her landscape is forests or mountains and so industrious to make possible the Asimo. Her short poems have been globally popularized with almost every of her citizens literate, while some of her streets still remain nameless. She must have acquired lots of black cats to reach such a height of civilization and power; Beauty comes with teeth not quite regular, visiting the vending machine to satisfy ones need for a beer, possessing the largest trade center for fish in the world but publicly blowing the nose and tearing off a gift’s wrap converts her cool countenance into a bad mood. She has centers for drinking and taking alcoholic shots so also for enjoying the fluid of lactation for adults. Ironing a shirt with a speed of light is her special craft and yardstick for a serious competition. Population of pets outweigh that of children; her appetite for Basashi and expenses for the melons invite controversy to any form of human reasoning. Immigration then is highly regulated to give continuity to such traditional and economic history.

Confined Glory Shining From Behind

It’s one of the masters of colony domination and the longest standing territory with unchanged defined borders. The wave power of praia do Norte attracts the unique technology of a wave farm existence. In a compound of many flats, it’s the most reserved and one of the twin sisters in their menopausal period of the life imprisonment era. The first domineering power to abolish human right repressiveness which sustains the oldest alliance made in the world. It’s a colourful identity, maintained by the porto which has been imitated by regional powers. Shines through a record-breaking Santa Claus parade and hitting heights with a ‘half-a-county’ dinning. Known continental praises of remarkable length in Vasco da Gama; shows off mini-glory in the league of large firework rockets; an intangible cultural heritage in the express exhibition of fatalism; are highlights to its greatness spreading from porto to Lisbon, then Braga to Benfica and overseas contributing its ink, in the inscriptions of the developed giants.

Pyramid-Maker

From a three-sided angle
Astrological purpose is unmangled
Triangle on top
Square on the bottom
Bright halo around God
Our tears fill His bottle
A Pyramid is a monument to death
A Tabernacle of wealth
Which comes into effect
When there's no longer breath
Is it mourning or celebration in stealth
Beyond Technology
Architectural prophecy
Geometrical philosophy
The place where Kings and Queens lay
Buried on a sun-disk
Dedicated to Day
The final form to decay
Hands form this shape
When they're positioned to pray.

Just another Grade A

Remarkable in brewery and port, foreign aid and cheese production founders of the twin Giants of the nation within the oceans having the cultivating- Land of glowing lights; a global focal point in bicycle riding and a historic mountain top in windmill usage, yet named as a glorified settlement but also a low one. Popular in its mayonnaise pasted French fries, oldest in its Anthem, first in anything Gin Liquor and biggest in coffee consumption. Possesses the highest milk tolerance and has the best welcome to children with the tallest inhabitants within a defined territory in the globe. The sounds of its difference is worth itching the ear and the capture of its glory is an amazing nutrient to curiosity. No need to go local with these factual flattery b’cos even through these words, it’ll show some comprehension and gratitude.

The Alpha of Modern Life

It is a field composed of four times more stones than grass with a spectacular traditional residency, making its habitat almost homogenous is this global historic street light, shinning with well spread beams. Through its inventions of western theories of tragedy and comedy, major mathematical principles, histiography and western literature, political science, the Olympics and western philosophy. All well capped by the majestic influence from its creation of democracy. Setting up as passengers of a flight travel to the past, the suppressed heavily added to the density of its people. Waving with an open hand and fingers well extended hits the mind with similar intensity to telling an irish “smell ya ma”. The puff of breath through pursed lips and the shade of blue stand in mythical beliefs of protection against evil. The unbelievable stamina of the Hoplite soldiers all sum up the beautiful historic landmark of a nation once defined by thousands of different quarreling colonies. The leading producer of sea sponges with its ships more than twice as much as its continental fleets and a global accolade of accumulating archaeological Museums. Despite being heavily wounded by financial meltdown; and still drinking from the deadly taste of its black soup its highlighted prominence in history, mathematics and philosophy together with the cultural swag of its first world features attract yearly interested sight-seekers much more than its inhabitants which is an enough statement, to the testament of its global charm.

A Land of Many Things

Known for one, behind which are many more, a Land well carved into geographic abundance and anthropologic history. A land of majestic fjords and of the midnight sun. A land possessed by the people of colourful clothings and known for rearing reindeers. A land of the troll both that of the scandanavian folklore and the largest object ever moved by man. A land of the “tran” against rickets and one also full of romance to the brown cheese. A land greeted with a great history of raiders but having a landscaped virtually void of castles. Now a modern terrain and an advanced pasture of the Scandinavia, glorified by its topmost position in the eventful tussles of the winter.

Museum Of Human History

A site of nature’s appreciation in wildlife and physical geographic beauty blessed with a set of spoken identity having over a hundred and twenty limbs of which the Bantu stretches the longest of them all. It is the creator’s Museum of human history; its song of natural pride and general patriotism is unbelievably shared with two of its neighbours as its existence feeds on a unifying regional government. Habitat to the globe’s largest and most delicious crab, preserving the world’s largest and intact volcanic caldera, a site for its continent’s highest and lowest points and the continent’s largest and deepest lakes. A major African contributor to the allied forces of world war two and prides in the most expensive hardwood in the world. With such a wealthy history and enviable reputation, its still stuck in the major challenge weighing on the dark continent.

Facial Beauty with Stretch Marks

He joins the league of the oldest continuous civilization and keeps three out of every five of the globe’s underground crude. Typified by a way of life resting on three luxurious pillows and the system of most of its homes void of tables and chairs. But a little cruel, he is to his helpless womb bearers as is he alongside three other friends a leading trader of trafficking sex with a sharp increase in the number of children becoming part of its service providers in recent times confirming his reputation as one of the worst hands for a girl to be born. His exotic pride lies on the rare breed of the Persian Cat popularly known to promote and boost the gender-change operation, as he is also crowned “the nose-job capital of the world”. In cavier, pistachios and saffron, he is a competing global producer; having the only condom merchandise factory in the entire middle east. He converts his plague of over a million foreign refugees into sustainable development built on cheap labour. Carpet exportation uniquely sits second in his earnings and finds a miracle food in his special Persian milk. “Paradise” was coined from a word of his mouth and poetry epitomizes the beauty of the cultural heritage; of his identity which was a one time world power and spreading empire.

Historic Transition to Modern Identity

A stable plate on two different trays historically embracing the celebrated words of Caesar. Home to the Hittites of old, St. Nicholas and the Antioch’s monument, and a fine developing continuation of the ancient city of Troy. From being a port to the legendary Ark to introducing cherry and coffee to an entire continent. Its mega hub, now stands a cultural goal post to the entire pitch of its very affluent larger region. Yet, its focal point uncommonly stands at Ankara and the survival of Tin still stay true in Goltepe. In time’s rare, twas the battle ground for the Trojan wars, also the Museums of wonders of Halicarnasus and Ephesus, but now an active site of manufacturing and Industrial boom. While two land masses caress its identity, the surrounding waters play and dance to its productivity.

Large but in a Small Size

A one time monster in military prowess but unbelievably luke-warm in all global turmoils. After one and two, it stands tallest in shipment of melodious sounds; from its creative mind comes the modern-day seat belt and the first to eradicate kid’s domestic judgments. Tradition is highlighted by its crayfish party, while the woods and beings share equal ration of existence. The moose then creates an Irony in the danger of death all in confinement of the most highly taxed population in the globe.
