cut down large trees
to cover these trenches
they made rooms
and covered the logs with clay
and piled dirt atop, and
used leaves to make it appear as if
they were walking on solid ground.

Stop blaming but refocus
Stop blaming but refocus
Don't blame 
What is done is done 
We can't change them 
By blames
But we can catch them
Back and turn them positive
By our actions towards change


Stop blaming but refocus
Cast your blames away
We can't keep pointing
Forever 
We can't keep...Read More

Weakness
On this loft I place my head. 
Lost in thought and deep in heart.
Not of a thing for glorification
But that which has gone
Beyond spirituality itself.

To appeased the gods of the earth.
Even medications are in thousands.
Everyone still maintain...Read More

Hailstone Crowns
“Fire” alarm sirens
are going off [the audible radar]
stealth silently
Those living deaf 
can’t receive
the incoming Death warning

Sky chariots on the roil warpath
are thunderclap rolling
Propaganda leaflet droppings
did foreshadow 
their cursed dire coming

Ordnance jewels are falling
from hailstone crowns — 
“All hail the GOAT...Read More

Adieux
After three decades and a kicking more,
I deem it glaring waste and blatant loss
To play sad part of second servile fiddle
In elite cadres agleam with ersatz gloss.

Whatever charged scrolls attuned to pelt
With loaded deterrents deft souls that try,
I now must...Read More

Bob in the Cage

He is not nice. 
I closed the door and told him to wait…there.
He did. 
It did not make his mood better. 
It helped mine a little.

Now,
my Lords and Ladies,
the Dark Man and the captain,
stood apart from all,
The Captain's mount and Turvehr,
they were uneasy as they pranced,
the Captain reined in his charger,
Turvehr was given his head,
both these mighty warriors faced each other,

Before The Gates Of Alahsar - Version - 2 - 10
All factors begin to come together,
deep within this song of Alahsar,
The Dark Man and Turvehr,

King's Mountain, Part II
...And though the rifles were slower to load,
the Overmountain Men made use of trees,
concealing themselves from counterfire
in places that the British couldn’t see.

With countless snipers popping out to shoot,
all the loyalists there atop the hill
knew that something had to be...Read More

King's Mountain, Part I
It was after the defeat at Camden,
in the fall of 1780,
British Major Patrick Ferguson
sought to exploit Britain’s victory.

To secure South Carolina’s countryside,
he marched his loyalist forces forward,
threatened the men beyond Appalachia,
said he would lay waste with fire and sword.

LUST AND DEATH
Lust and death
Are best of friends,
Stealer of breath,
Tracks to life's end.

Epic story,
Terrific imageries,
Delivering water to your tears,
Offering cold to your spine.

Like a wind blowing dried daffodils,
Her voice took all of your senses,
Lost in lust, not knowing were your sense is,

Geoengineering
Geoengineering!

The majority of people 
On this beautiful planet,
All with their own lifestyles,
Culture, religion, 
History and tales!
When they see these,
Long white streaks,
In the sky,
They think 
Nothing of them
And call them 
CONtrails!
Busy with their lives,
Busy in their actions!
Minds being taken over,
