My best friend...

You needed or wanted. 
I would talk to you for hours, 
about whatever you thought, 

You made me laugh,

Premium Member The Eagle
By Dawne Zacharias

This bird is admired for its grandeur,
 its grace in flight,
Its size and magnificent power.
When in flight it stirs the
 soul to true liberty.
He can use his mighty wings 
to carry other eagles to safety.
Turbulence makes him stronger

'Rebel Poetry'
'Rebel Poetry'

Rebelliousness... or normal conformities;
individually, of course, have differences,
a person's definitions may bar absurdities,
yet, who'd truly ignore rebel utterances?

Amateur writings are rarely publicised, so
who'd determine what's acceptable for verse?
Rebels can not be disciplined... no can do...
should one keep quiet: accept...Read More

In Depend Ends
On the eve of the new call, 
wits mated with passion, 
zeal donated by conception, 
hypersensitive pulls attracted all,
contracts into a horrendous span
as independence made for the span. 

But after those, 
the cry was severed by greed
seasoned by ills inflected...Read More

Choicelessly I appear
On a tinctured lopsided land
A land with the best brains
But with the least development
A land flowing with milk and honey
But her sons and daughters are kwashiokored
A land favoured by nature 
But cursed by greed
A land beautifully painted...Read More

The Image of My Nation
To western seige we're a stooge
Dancing like drunkards in deluge
We sow our seeds in centrifuge.
What race gladly ruins her refuge?

Free souls strolling behind bars
Brave recruits scared of scars
Fragrant flowers staring at the stars.
Is this who we really are?

Running after the...Read More

A tattooed body of roses
A taste of honey in a cherry pie
An alibi

A path to no man's land
A world of dark passion
A world of great deception

It is not a caution
It stands in a narrow format

A hollow tree

A bleeding sparrow

Say No To Xenophobia
I saw an angry African tower over a bleeding brother
I saw a by-passer look on, with little bother
I saw a neighbour inflict a new scar and a blister
I heard a woman’s yelling silence a pleading sister
A foreign accent crying out...Read More

This seems to be that of a glorious celebration,
Which needs no ear to be put on the wall.

An Ode To 150CEFA 'francs'


He had greeted the trader, for it was evening.
An unusual day it was, the sun still smiling
And shedding light on dark mother earth.

In the market place 
Et les hommes et les femmes ont...Read More

The artist looks at the meadow, 
He remembers details when all others…

Uniquely transformed…
By the sites, he has seen, forever.
Upon arrival at his home, 
The soldier gathers strength. 

The studio is open, 
waiting for the gladiator,
to do battle with canvas…,

He said the undiplomatic cost
to all of us freedom celebrators,
to firstborn sons and daughters,
to last born future children,
would be far less
than its liberating value.

Value for and against what healthy purpose?

Value for and against which wealthy constituents?

Premium Member Please let me have my July 4th - As spoken by Trump
I want a parade 
Let it be huge
No chance I’ll be swayed
Don’t be a scrooge.

Lot’s of Brass Bands
Marching Marines
The clapping of hands
This thing’s in my genes.

I may not have served
I wasn’t quite well
But now its deserved
A big show and tell.

Death of Independence Day
The nation of independence with claims of peace
succumbs to the boast of the tyrant,
with a parade of destruction's tools.

Equipment used to smash, obliterate and snuff out life
with civilian collateral damage no one will discuss
or even acknowledge, are worshiped.
Tanks, jets...Read More
