Last Call

Last Call

A Poem by Abdul Batin Osman Bey
"

Choices of a fleeting life

"

Last call

Roll the ball

What will the eye loose?

Sight?

Wait?

Food?

 

Behind the cat is a way to get small

In front of the caterpillar you’ll grow tall

A choice of no choice at all

Relevance is only dependant on if you know who you are

 

Secret love can’t embrace the sun

Jupiter is the father of Pluto

Hunger dives with swans

Oranges for sale

 

Freedom the eternal pipe dream

In hale knowledge to escape poverty

Embers showed me true reality

Few will know the joy I have found

 

The further from God I feel the closer I am

Disturbed by what I was about to become

I knocked until Moses answered the door

Flooded roads don’t bother me

Howl on lost puppy

  Winding cakes vomit bunnies

All is mind,

Mind is all

Fragrance travels up from Hull

 

Unearth the earth you’ve created

Hope you enjoy the meal you’ve prepared

Choke it down if you must

You have only you to blame

 

Last call

Roll the eight ball

What will you lose?

Only you can choose
