Football Militants

by Nick Anthony

Flags as large as ships’ sails
Waive to and fro in solidarity,
Billowing with pride.

The masses—
Whose fully erect arms
Are only an open palm away
From a formal Nazi salute—
Fill the flowing tapestry of banners
With air warmed by their impassioned voices
As they chant and sing
The acrid cries of war.

I, transfixed

by how your wings attach

Judgement Day

by Nick Anthony

When He came down from the heavens above,
We welcomed Him, arms wide open with love.
We showered our God with adoration
And eagerly sought His revelation.

Prostrated before His magnificence
In an attempted rite of recompense
Under the golden throne of creation,
We prayed for everlasting salvation,

Something’s Off

Outside the temple,
Starving homeless beg for food
While monks drive mopeds.

Beautiful, unique Jagged pieces of

Who we are

Who we are meant to be
As life carves our existence

Respecter of none

I believe in the goodness of humanity
Believe that dawn will follow night surely
Believe in all things beautiful
Though the world is full of misery
Believe in  oneness of mankind, disappearance
Of artificial boundaries dividing us
Believe one day we shall overcome, and
Win our fight against eradication of crippling diseases
Believe we will be able to stop all abuses and exploitation

The Whomans!

by Tanya

All the while I thought
Why She had some?
Why He had all?
Both He and She were Humans..

All the while I thought
Why Whites were favoured?
Why Darks were abhorred?
Both Whites and Darks were Humans..

~ Pieces of You, of Me

by ladyliterati

~ Pieces of You, of, Me

There is no time limit to grief

Just shock, horror, disbelief

And “well doers” seek a smile

Insisting grief is but a little while

But this cannot possibly be true;

The World of the Day!

by Tanya

I wondered what the world meant..
Was it the love that people spread?
Or is it the hatred which actually stands?

It’s love, they said,
Which linked all in this den.
But there stood hungry men,
Who craved for the blood of these men!

~ Being Human

by ladyliterati


“Strive as we might, our humanity keeps us from perfection -that great illusion – And it is our humanity that tortures our thoughts when a “mistake” has been made. A mistake is paid for once, yet, our humanity guilts us, shames us, ’til we bankrupt our souls, still, believing we can obtain the unattainable…the perfect”… O’Prunty 2/13/17

~ Death Holds No Victory Here…

by ladyliterati

~ Death Has No Victory

We are all a composite

Of that which came before

The good, the bad,

Sadness, happiness, galore
The efforts of our ancestors

Still cling within our bones

Tis why we have no answers

Culture       is       a       fence,

fixed     with     giant     stems

and    sharp     barbed   wires

of beliefs, norms and values,

to      set    me     an    insider

and  you  a   bloody  outsider.

So Kind Guru

by newrana

A jungle was his head

for lies to hide;

no brush ever touched

his teeth too wide.

His rough-edged feet

feared no thorns;

his shorts and shirt

clung ever to his bones.
