Biography: ...I recall the pernicious vent of inanity, an attorney of songs; a kiss of imaginative empathy that dwells occasionally in artistic isolation!

I DIED YESTERDAY

I died yesterday

The rosy sky was blue

Yet no path helds sway

Hope dangled with no clue

 

I died yesterday

Under the weight of humiliation

Following your arrival in May

The birth of recession

 

I died yesterday

Before your very eyes

Ranchers made slay

And you say all are but lies

 

I died yesterday

Yes I died, to deluding promises

Buried to decay

With empty eulogies

 

I died to give change a new name

The very holiness you portray

A lopsided nepotic charade you became

Integrity I never knew could betray

 

I died, I died

Yet you appointed me a deadman

Charred and dried

Indeed, you need a scan

 

I died yesterday

I died for sinners outside your clique

Hunted in utter dismay

In your reawakened rise to the peak

 

I died in the open monastery

The zenith of religious intolerance

The height of unguided mystery 

Egregiously watching us in glance!

Oh I love this life
Sorrowful harsh heartbreaking laziness all sort of
All and love it gives.
