Unending vanity

In every generation
There is a strong adoration
For the excessiveness
Of general worthlessness
In both values and in pride
Whereas an end must hit a ride.

Vanity is indeed hidden
In time, and all the downtrodden
Leech on its predated
Fact that time is infinite,
Each generation have them
Hence, vanity may never end.

Sonnet: Same air we breath

Both spots differ,
But lines are thin.
Big cities have
Lots of cravings;
Lovely to dwell
Whereas ghettos
Win nothing good
When you compare.
Take a step out
Toss your head up
There is one sun,
Same stars and moon.
Same air we breath
Sharing same depth.

Goose of golden eggs

You kill the goose
That lays gold eggs
To make Earth gains
From the hells grain.

What is the need
To be overfed
With running over
Like no other…

What is the need
To ride on horses
Just to afford
All the wild wishes,

Whereas someone
Same flesh and bone
Born with no spoon
Die and you watch…

What is the need
To have tall fences
With wasting needs
And rotten fruits

When your neighbors
Attempt to eat
You kill the goose
Of golden eggs.

Hope that you know
Same cemetery
Same feet down depth
All heads shall rest.

Lashing coffins

Fact pigs have desires
To be forever kings…

Watch words they fire
And bullets they tuck in…

What they bring for dinner
Might not see them blink

It is good to be a winner
Why block another sink

Note that breathe is a vampire
Awaiting the sleeping coffin.

Money, Life and Vanity

Money isn’t just the root of all evil
But it route to all evil
Funny enough it still burns
No one passes the furnace of life
And comes out alive
Many life had been taken from a wife
Husband and otherwise…
