Man & The Hue

Man & The Hue

A Poem by Radad Ibn Nasir

What is today but a present screening of getting closer to the..

Lecture me whilst the news drones on.
Following dead mens footsteps for so long.
"Not a human was killed today."
Only the targets have stopped moving.

As in our separate freedoms
Quite stately dependent mediums.
Robotic to the law of social tedium.
"Oh, a discussion with diverse views, no need of them."

I won't be behooving,
Intolerant are the gloomy,
yet present company
believes it has no ties
to all the other sides.

The thoughtless just act.
Quite conscious of the facts,
buried deep within their hearts,
the same pea story of truth did start.

"Behold and deride!
It is incumbent
of old and so redundant,
yet, this is all we do in snide."

Mark the words of trolls,
who begin in empty holes
and grieve upon rightful souls,
or life, or any that which chooses to know.

Be that,
Exotic tie.
Holding together.
Mocking the knife.

Should the strange self
lend its being to mongrels..
Then no drop of you
Could ever be the sea.

No space
But human faculties.
No race
But human casualties.

A voice without a canvas is just an echo heard throughout time. Sometimes children ask me to play, so I play. The elderly beckon with wisdom and I syphon. I think I was born an expression... I hav.. more..
