Opinion


Every one’s got an opinion
We are entitled to our views
But, we won’t all agree the 
Difference often times are 
Huge
Somehow the simpler the 
Problem harder the 
Moot
Layering instead of issues 
Open wounds
And personalized attacks 
Are used
A point of contention is
The deliberate disguising of
The truth 
Distorting facts
Figures assembled by rote
Really there are a lot to be
Desired
Having regards to the distance
Between what had first prompt 
The opinion
And the reasoning that led
To this irrational tirade and suit
A stuck in a bog like situation
Ensue 
Like the dreaded dream state 
Being awake and can’t speak 
Move or do what you want to
While the root rot
The debates rambles on 
Unable to; save quip,
Get a grip on solid ground
Consensus pursuit

A Kite

A Kite by Weston Gregory 

Gamed and played, swift to flight
a kite outbound disengaged from 
gravity's might
A laughter of sort at least a smile
that by and by we can untangle 
humanity's plight

By swish and swirl and crazy hoops
a kite lighten burden inspires hope on 
journey not new
yet, ever changing when life's wind blew
until all's but distant sight, held by cords 
and glue 

Above horizon daunting for me and you 
but, a cinch for a kite with faith inbrued
a chime to dance the rhythm which 
nature taught true....

Earth

Great Earth
Earth great earth 
taut gravity source
A welcome sight of star 
thrust return.
Mist shroud world
kind to those nature borne
Layered in protective 
season
The equator exotic
splendor
Sought mostly 
as a sort of Eden
Tropical terrain of water and 
ore rich resources 
immerse in humanities
advances
Well worth its place 
cosmically arranged
A beacon of life
This rock is amazing.....

Crime Against Humanity

Crime Against Humanity 
Violence's the human disposition 
of last resort
Check the talk, skew the walk, 
in the court of popular, Christ wasn't
soft
Lunge at his daughters killer, man 
tries to soothe his heart
Of senseless violence, the mass 
destruction that is so off
Unhinged sensation in the minds 
of feeble men
Lack justification for wantonly 
killing our fellow human
Tales of past exploit regale history
And taught in class
The next monster seeps, 
already the tear of the family sear deep
Justice they seek 
but, the wheel of repeat has dug 
its teeth 
and save except a monumental 
effort to retrace our step 
that bright light of progress will 
be bloodied humanity crimes
regret.

Politician Ways

Politicians are the most pretentious
 to emerge from the primordial mulch 
of creation.
They pretend to love, 
they pretend to care,
In the case of them doing any deal 
remotely benefiting constituents
 is on condition they profit in prestige, 
wealth and a seat, a boardroom chair.

They hug an old lady its a photo opp
They kiss a baby its a god damn video shot, 
Even though the homeless is festering, 
lacking in compassion, bolstering they bray,
But miss the point that businesses has 
reneged on paying a livable wage

The politicians are one piece of work, 
weird that they represent the rich and 
well to do, 
and to you, dem stuff dem chest with 
ashes while exiting poverty, 
they knew which way the wind blew

Well, money pour to the centre augmented 
by a guard of honor rough beast of men, 
though shroud now, don't be surprise when 
you find its the politicians.

love in Marriage by Weston Gregory

Love in Marriage 

For this reason, love precious joy
is shared, expressed; 
that within the confine of marriage 
its significance, are memories 
though sometime small 
hold the most potent experience.

Marrraige is a give and take
love is a give all you can take 
marriage is equal estate, 
love gift offering keeps you
fill while never sate.

For satisfaction, love though 
is not lacking in conviction,
marriage on the other hand
is truly the best one, 
offering completion one to 
another to safe guard our 
institutions.

From seeing its growth, 
feeling its unadulterated dose,
love in marriage truly make for 
the best strokes.

of importance, not to be side tracked 
are the loveliness of our children 
when mom and dad tie the knot.

A bond of inclusiveness
A bond resolved on two people
promise to share in matrimony 
love for all eternity.

Inspire

Inspire by Weston Gregory 

When the sun comes from the east 
Shining its beauty through the 
leaves,
I'm so inspired by what I  see.
Its way though not easy to say
I sigh when the rare jasmine bloom.
I smile at the  monarch butterfly 
choreograph loops,
and laugh in this lazy afternoon

I all but spy its spectrum hue
and am left mesmerize by its hovering 
on the west bound horizon too,
Jamaica is haunted by a spectre of 
gloom,
on its fading from sight on Negril west end 
soon

As if wishing on a dream 
Within the swirl of unsynchronized scenes 
our nature predicts tomorrow 
Whether serendipitous or nightmarish
horror.
Response well to a global hallow 
a prayer;
Goodnight my blossom see you in the morning,
When the sun comes from the east
Shining its beauty through leaves.....

Phoenix the dawg

Phoenix the dawg

There in my yard is a dawg name 
phoenix
One stubborn black bitch
Easily identified by her signature hind 
limp
Now, is not that she's without redeeming qualities
But that dawg no matter how you call har 
she seems hard of hearing
While it well known that's a choice she is making
Cause the merest sound har ear perk,
she jump up and start barking
Phoenix the real mix I love to say 
But jah know, dis dawg personify 
the adjective play
I leave her sometimes under a mango 
tree loosely chain 
Where her kennel is to cover her when 
it rain
A piece of work she is even when she is 
on rein 
Cause har mouth nuh cry quit, she get wey under mi van already and bite the wiring to 
total disarray
Yet, phoenix is a unique dawg, 
black as midnight with a face like a
happy smile....wg

My Friend

My Friend by Weston Gregory

I'm glad you are my friend
And you are interesting 
There’re no dull moments
And we can share what each 
Other thinking, 
Though its been tested of a fact
But we're invested in what we've got  
We fought tooth and nail to remain 
At that and nothing going to change
That as friend first we attached.
I'm better for deciding not to stay alone 
You heal my broken heart 
With you is my home
Amongst its value this love has help
Me to grow
And deal with the issues as they come
And they go
Though mistakes we are prone to make 
And bitter words are some times said 
We forgive. We forgive. We forgive
We forgive. We forgive. We forgive
We forgive
And like water under the bridge 
Those complex emotion simple love finally singe
Leading the way a stronger friend still

Pearl in sand of marbles by Weston Gregory

Pearl in sand of marble 
           by
   Weston Gregory

Its her eyes, its her smile,
she's a wonderful girl all
the while.
There's no doubt where ever 
she goes every man wants a bly;

One set waits on the corner and 
whistle when she's passing by
one's bold and step up to her 
to tell her hi.

She smiles, glints her eyes 
and tell them bye bye,
good nature'ly telling them 
please don't try.

Where ever she goes she 
stands out,
 walking,
 talking,
standing, she's a classy lady 
that's why

She's a pearl in sand of marbles 
she's the season, modestly showing
she's stable'
An essence of fragrant petal, 
her charm is no fable.
