VALLEY OF THE OTHER KINGS

VALLEY OF THE OTHER KINGS

A Poem by kublakhan27
"

Inspired by the article below...04 23 14

"
I.

Continuity
your filibuster egg of sand
dazzled curiosity
with creaky shell of hints
heaped upon the tedium
of knowledge's unfurl undeterred
by encyclopedic impatience

Assurances of rip(Van Winkl)ed
economics shooed paper strings of
revelation like anarchy-powered
taxes summoning a foreword
to anachronistic campaigns
of environmental friendliness

II.

Meanwhile years
have been filed down to flashes of
chronology for continuity's organic rebus

However long it took
the economic karma to fall into the
abodes of hedonistic pharaohs
it was instant

Skin that ruled behind the constitution
of allergic breath
bailed on the bones against their most
sublime intentions

Limbo-treading landlords
huddled in their mummified freeze
after breadline bashers scolded them
with the spoils of a new brand
of pyramid scheming

Robbers of the coffin palaces
stole the intimations of identity
theft from today

Immortality and freedom
were compelled to share a meaning
like estranged siblings
or bound dynasties

I(a).

Abydos
how you coyly toyed with us
with a diversion bordering on monolithic

Part 2 captured me the most and what you have to write based on the seams of our humanity and to what seems our lack of morals and ethics that are seeping through. And monolithic we are becoming.

Great write.

"Immortality and freedom
were compelled to share a meaning
like estranged siblings
or bound dynasties" - I really like this stanza, and I can tell by the way you write you are coming from a fairly occult mode of thinking.

History repeats itself so shamefully... You craft your messages so artfully, Steve. Your word choices are perfect, thoughtful and thought-provoking, always.

Intelligent and thought provoking...I admire the way you so expertly compare ancient times to the present. It seems as though history does repeat itself - over and over again. This is a powerful piece that allows your creativity to shine.

Take without giving back and even the strongest relationship/culture will fall. You are treasure, Steve.

Thanks so much Pryde, so glad you enjoyed it and understood where I was coming from.
I love how you transitioned from the ancient soul robbers back
From history to the corruption that continues today. Once again,
Brilliant use of language and sardonic imagery in each stanza, Mr. Steve.

Your gifted pen never ceases to amaze me...Thank you for sharing! :)

Wow. Fantastic work. I really enjoyed reading this. It gave me that ancient times feel and really hit deep. My favorite part was this:

"Immortality and freedom
were compelled to share a meaning
like estranged siblings
or bound dynasties"

Beautifully penned! Fantastic work! (:
