kaleidoscope apocalypse

A Poem by Cardinal Robin

 

 

 

 

kaleidoscope  apocalypse

 

 

 

Summer river overflowing

I’ve got a song to sing,

bring all your sisters

and your brothers,

and bring me

a strong drink

 

Take a look at what we’ve done

we’ve forgotten how to live our lives

by the cycles of the Moon and Sun

 

Follow happy forest trails

as far as the eye can see

Take a minute by the Oceans

hold her hand! It’s a sandy mystery

 

Take a look at what we’ve done

we’ve forgotten how to live our lives

by the cycles of the Moon and Sun

 

Hold an image of the wildlife in your heart

rail against insanity,

we gone too far how can this be

and the Mountains sleep like silent sages

 

The fire in your lies burned the memories

of the dreams of your future

with healthy children

not laying in political alleys

selling their flesh wares

to uncle sam’s treasury

 

Take a look at what we’ve done

we’ve forgotten how to live our lives

by the cycles of the Moon and Sun

 

I won’t wake up tomorrow

not if there will be so much

can this world support everyone in sorrow

after all, WHO has the Midas touch?

 

Brothers sisters you are golden

and I know I’d like to keep this LIGHT

This song for everyone, you and me ……eeeeeeeeeeeEEE

 

Stop the KILLING

Stop the BOMBING

 

Stop the HATING

Stop the RAPING

of ANYONE

aaaaa       nnnn   yyyy   oooooooo   nnnnnnnnnnnnnn eee 

aaaaa       nnnn   yyyyyy  oooooooo   nnnnnnnnnnnnnn eee 

aaaaa       nnnnn    yyyyyy   oooooooo nnnnnnnnnnnnn eee 

 

 

We are the FIELDS Dry and Fallow

and I a simple Swallow…

Eeek!
I am so happy to see this, the name of my bestie, also the name of a beautiful and wise work of art!

EXCELLENT! ^.^

Love these lines:

"Take a look at what we've done
we've forgotten how to live our lives
by the cycles of the Moon and Sun"

So true! My life cycle is BACKWARDS... Or sometimes non-existent...
Still haven't gone to sleep... lol.
As always, LOVE YOUR WORK! ^.^

This poem gives me hope... ^.^

Singing the song of life.. always and again. Your topics are great in this metaphysical poem. it is about growing wise, searching and celebrating joy of life. a breathtaking ambition.

Whoa! This is just full of a eloquent desire, I just can't put my finger on it. The ending was breathtaking. "The fire in your lies burned the memories of the dreams of your future", Shew...You are a true artist my friend, your words move me beyond explanation, and I long to be moved...Another masterpiece my love!

As Always,

First of all, the title is amazing. I love the way the sounds in those words go together - it's really fun to say! I'm not quite sure how it fits into the subject of the poem, though...

The like the driving idea behind the poem too - I can just picture a drunkard standing up on his stool shouting these words at the top of his lungs, falling off and then muttering the last lines XD Great job!

This was really good! Eloquent, passionate, and oddly romantic. Your writing speaks volumes; who are we, why are we living this way? I love the stanza:
The fire in your lies burned the memories
of the dreams of your future
with healthy children
not laying in political alleys
selling their flesh wares
to uncle sam's treasury.
It's so beautifully and terrifyingly true; we're such w****s to our own ambitions. Excellent piece, keep it up!

"and bring me

a strong drink"
It seems as though-- my ill ways are also the ways of others! By the cycle of the moon and sun. Brilliant wording my dear, new friend.
