War On The Poor
They wage war on the poor
Selling their souls what for
But for gluttony and greed
Dissension is what they breed
Harmony and discord
A duality we can't afford
People die on the street
Chilled to the bone, no heat
No bread, no bed
So they commit suicide instead

there forever. 
You will never age.

Remember Pearl Harbor
Seventy-eight Years Ago
By Franklin Price
12/07/2019

Seventy-eight years ago,
At the rising of the sun
Came the day of infamy; 
Our present times begun

The sleeping giant awakened,
To become the greatest power 
Would take four years and many lives
To have our finest hour

The journey of a loving poet
The journey of a loving poet

1
My fingers are like the twigs
in the autumn
having the construction of the sadness

2
Sunshine burned my skin,
Loneliness
unwitnessly comes as cancer.

3
Apple is sweet
eroding my teeth
-My silent faith

Tequila
basked under the sunshine,
betrayed the fragrance of that girl

Before The Gates Of Alahsar - Version - 2 - 16
As they reach the golden gates,
turning, they do face the foe,
the Arlaghs,
they would come with power and might,
too kill,
the ground will shake when they charge,
they shall run hard for their meal,
always hungry is the Arlagh.
Come then forth, to meet your...Read More

Africa's Destiny
The African student 
begins education’s journey,
with tentative steps.

Language and mathematic knowledge
begin reshaping brain’s flow,
in preparation for what follows.

Myths and fables bow and recede
before science and knowledge,
teaching the student to question.

Critical thinking
casts aside
misconceptions of inferiority.

The mind is molded, like hot iron,

On a parched land

PARTY
The political party is a pot
Brewing beer not of barley
Preserved for the toppers not the lot
It is a beer to convince by deception to pry
Upon the minds of the lot

The powers of the political party steer
Mainly gained through the intoxication

an ego 
a tension 
a mind of foe

in death

And love by its surrender
in its power play
may come to break its scaffold
from your heart

Inch by inch 
and by love
they are picked apart
and then to the bare bones of love
reduced to silence
and seen by sufferance
all their weakness
and how it makes...Read More
