Castle Of My Thoughts

 

In my great castle
I voyaged to the land called yesterday
When you were declared the ‘Moses’
To lead us to harvest honey and milk

We witnessed your obedience
In your executive clothes
When you pledged your loyalty
Held it high for the world to see

You sang an unquenchable fresh air
Which inflamed the sky
And advertised your goodluck
As you pleaded for our thumbs

Still in my thoughts
I sit to sweat under my skin
Trying to comprehend why
We ke-ke napep all day
While you fly in your private bird

You dine with forks and knives
While we wait for the harvest of honey
As our soul brothers
Turn our land to mass-graves

Sweating in my castle
My eyes swim in tears
I scoop wine with buckets
Just to rinse my mind’s eye
And erase all shabby memories
To the forest of forgetfulness
As I fight with my pen
In my humble castle
Of my thoughts…

  1. In my humble castle
    Of my thoughts…

    consider,
    “in the humble castle
    of my thoughts”

    Well done.

  2. @nonsochi, booze doesn’t take away the pain, only for a fleeting moment. Very nice piece, the last verse to me is the climax, well done

  3. Deep. Deep.

    Well crafted. You are a poet.

  4. Like a girl gets swept, we fell for the scam…
    Now we live, ruing our tough luck
    the one we thought was good,
    Thing now is, we all have turned philosophers.

    Deep. Rich.

  5. Corruption and the common man. Nice.

  6. Thanks to you all, I really appreciate your comments! Its a boast!!!
