The Legend of Urban Fridays III

she said

c’mon over to my pad

bring a bottle of red

I have dinner prepared

for a moment he dared not say a word

not quite sure if he was glad

or a little afraid

righteous creature

day and night

same picture

different light

if foresight can prevent a shortcoming

then surely insight is the advent – the becoming

when you search from deep within

not a single thing can be out of reach

and you can never be out of your depth

the Dream dynasty

in the year 2100

he’ll the unify the lands
and lead four billion

he’ll ride a black rhino
carry a diamond spear
and a platinum shield

she’ll not hide her black

she’ll not fear
for the life of the child on her back

and her bosom will feed
than her womb can bear

and those who forgot
where they came from
will look and stare
wishing to come home

Deal & Die

had you not those ideals

would you still

want it all


and if the imagination

which fills you

with what feels and seems so real


would you still

give it your all


should not what you live by

and that you live through

help you to grow

and even make you immortal

instead of


that you die for

with image being what we now use most to gauge
one wonders how (if) it helps us to engage
