A Poem by Silente
"

Focusing on locusts...

"
 I focus on
locust
hocus pocus
corpus 'n' oak'us ​- ​cloak'us
forest broken 'n' soakin'
evokin' mopin' ​; ​a rope'n elope
and slope'n​...​

​I'​m open like robes
​...​hose me down​...​
​...​hopes crown​...​
I'​m bound to sound
round my pound​,​
out of drowns​,​
so air hounds​ --​ abound​.​
I'​m loud in a cloud​,​
the ground amounts​
 to an ounce of mounds
-- and now​ --​

​I'​m bound
a bat outta hell
as​ -​ ​I​ fall and
sell myself short​ ...​ at bat​.​

​I'​m a rat​ ~​ so phat
I'​m cracked at the seams
​...​it se​e​ms​...​
my means are weaned
and lean, now sleep​
and dream​​
of eating ​​reams​.​

​T​he paper bling
that screams
as the mean king 
reaps ​-​ with ease​.​

​I'​m asleep and cream-filled​ 
​a donut​ ​still​ -​- 
​I​ will be​ --​- still​.​

​M​y will is filled
with obnoxious krill​,​
that kill and kill​...​
like the pill​​
​...oxycotin​...​
N​oxious​;​ ​I'​m
cotton anxious
forgotten angst, christ​;​

it​'​s drilled into my head
a bill of dead bits
lead to lead a message, Zed 
- in a bottle -
when will the mess begin​?​
I'​m throttled, a model citizen
and ​--- ​it ends​,​

no rest for trimmed
and
~ gobbled friends​.​

Great rhymes, another fantastic piece. Not only is the rhyming fantastic, the whole flow of the piece is exquisite. It's not just easy to read, but fun, it's just a very enjoyable piece.

I loved this one, my friend. It's light, fast-paced and it made me smile as the images rattled around in my head. I can visualize it as a fast, screaming, jabbing guitar lick over very heavy drums, with the lyrics driving the punters crazy as they each attribute different meanings to them. Thanks for the ride!
And Merry Christmas...

This one was a throw-away verse, and literally has ZERO "translation"... So I would concur with your.. read more
This was such a very fun poem to read and I didn't get lost in translation.
