They can make you smile
and they can make...Read More

Murder in Us All

where the multicultural blending has been there for centuries.
Where church of all denominations have been standing side by side.

that they are for the people,

Rot is strong, coming from the corpses. 

They point thin-sharp fingers,

The world waited for a savior
whilst it raced headlong to its fate.
They did not know that he had been there
but was overcome by hate.

"All commandments hang on this"
But such joy they found in killing,
so each...Read More

When I go out to speak,
I mean to be heard,
giving voice to the spoken word.

Versifiers, master mighty mouth
Manipulators and speakers of the truth.
