A Poem by jacob erin-cilberto

those stupid wildebeests 

 

 

post my tears on your blog

for all to see

you won't get many views

 

because they are diluted

with pride,

I have a lion's intuition

you will have other prey

but your computer will short circuit

like your heart.

Technology is great but it comes at a price of turning us into anemotional computer.

Dear J, what a metaphor here. The final four lines of this short poem speak volumes. A lion's intuition is as sharp as you can get. There is a sharp edge to this poem. Have a lovely weekend dear friend.

Excellent and not at all about wilderbeasts. I love and agree with the subtlety here Jacob.

Has a bitter sound to it, this one. Sounds as though someone was jerked around, then left to hang and twist in the wind. Lessons never cease.
