Battlefield Greens

true success
is achieving one’s aims
without infringing on the rights of other citizens

and victory in essence
entails upholding universal truths
not simply triumph over opponents


Don’t get me wrong

I, too, want your love and affection

And I’m only tight on time

Because I’m consumed with ambition

Things more than a decade in the making…

Living my purpose, that’s what’s always on my mind

And in my opinion, there’s really no need for all this tension

Since my passion for you, although of a kind totally different

Is just as strong


She said:
Bad man
You’re no good for me
But I want your love all the same
Just keep making me weak at the knees
And I’ll pretend you’re the man of my dreams

Bag Blurb

Hustle hard
As if you are Ken Jacobs of Lazard
And secure the bag
Like a member of the Bilderberg
Only after that
Can you even begin pursuing anything other…

Passes on Paper

Ideally, money should furnish a populace with the means of applying their faculties in industry and commerce; while the right education empowers them to establish the appropriate premise on which to advance their civilisation.

However, in reality, pecuniary pursuits often have people primarily playing for position and power; perhaps due to the unproductive propensities promulgated by the poor architecture of their system of education.

Writing Words on Windows

opportunity exists only in a window of time
so do your best to stay on trend
and don’t get left behind

it takes a while for a grape to turn into wine
so invest more than you spend
and don’t forget to pay your tax and be kind

Coin Carol: The Block Is Hot

the deal was sealed and time bound
now all they had to do was confirm the hash timelock contract
to complete the smart atomic swap

and it was on this basis
that they could make a fair exchange
with no middlemen
and all being transparent
that there was left no room to question

the system was absolute
like a grave from where there can be no inquisition of life

Swallow: the humble fruit

be not overly preoccupied with only the activity of your personal fancy
and remember that some of your insights, by others, may not always be shared
just as not all your contributions will be well-received

also, much may be discovered by you than most care to understand
so the greater your talent
the more genuine your show of humility ought to be
because the lifeless tree of self-absorption never bears fruit, you see?

Sand to Sky

like sand at the bottom of the sea
never to reach the heights of heaven

that’s how it feels
when you dig deep
and can’t resurface

even so
never despair
for if you can bear long-suffering for but a season
joy will soon spring up

but remember to keep some strategic thoughts to self
since you need not say every word
speak on every endeavour
or tell every tale

let your work reveal to the world
the depths of your understanding

One June Afternoon

Silence is sometimes the best wisdom
Since speech is not always an expression of freedom

And noble aspirations ought to have meaningful application
Because having a dream does not necessarily mean one has the determination
