The Predator’s Prey

It followed me into the darkness
Thinking it had my number
Believing itself as the predator
Sure it had me cornered

I stopped walking
Stood in the darkness
Hungry for conflict
Clenching my fists

It darted out in front of me
Following an evil script
Its deadly eyes piercing mine
Shocked at my appearance

I wore a smile with grinning teeth
Bloodied lips and blackened eyes
a blood-stained shirt with strands of flesh
With a severed-finger necklace 
around my neck

Its smile ran off
It stood motionless
Until I took its eyes to eat
When it screamed, I took its tongue
I took its heart, it couldn’t run

Then as it fell I knelt on it
And tore off a finger with my teeth
Cutting it clean from the palm
Another trophy
Another charm

Stagnation

From hopelessness true heroes are born
Driven by anger, hunger and urgency
Warriors of retribution leading the way
Forging the foundation for future revolutions

But one man can only do so much
Give his life for justice, while the rest nest
Under the most hostility yet he refuses to complain
A Rock only causes damage when thrown

In these shallow days nothing is sacred
Yet people shuffle on inconspicuously
Hoarding time
Waiting for others to change

Close Encounter of the Nerd Kind

It flew above my head
Excited and flickering lights
Sending wishes of supernatural delights
It left the whole street in awe that night

They were branded the enemies
At war we lost so many lives
Military and civilians, ruined houses and buildings
Gullible at their obvious disguise

And when the dust settled
We rose as the victors
But our money had depleted
We lived a life of rummage, our pride and hearts defeated

The rulers took us under their wings
To settle our debts we worked the feilds
Dug mines and stood in production lines
All to get our bread and wine

But a few things just seemed too odd
How Monuments shot purple sparks
How they navigated our landscapes fast
How they had mastered Tesla’s rod

At first we thought they came from God
Or outer space from distant stars
Where they took off is where they landed
We’ve all been duped
thats how they planned it

So as we sit and watch the stars
Our DNA is melting fast
Our poisoned food and water feeds
Our brainwashed minds until they bleed

It’s Oh so hard to break the chains
When one comes free, it joins again
We try so hard to fight the top
When its ourselves that need to stop

They don’t control our mouths and eyes
Decisions we must make them wise
And not buy into doublespeak
We are ourselves, that’s all we need
