white collar black market

they talk of being woke
but at the same time turn a blind eye
while white collar ties to black market crimes in commercial enterprise
exacerbate the social plight
of those at the bottom of the economic divide

but what to expect when freedom is not necessary for the organism to survive
wisdom not part of the narrative of what makes civilisation thrive
when one needs no light to have a good night
and it’s convenient to believe the lies
isn’t that the tragedy of our times folk?


Her Heart

She understood empire building
And how to position herself at the centre like Lady Lugard
Nifty when pulling the strings and always true to her feelings
A real woman, no facade 


no heaven for a heathen

significance is predicated on the presence of substance
so in the absence of meaning there can be no essence
and when things manifest in our lives that seemingly don’t make sense or meet our expectations
perhaps it’s because we missed the connection between our thoughts, feelings and actions
the consequence of which is a life with no purpose
