Wandering Scarlet

Sleeping Gas *not done

green gas spawns from idols of greed and lust
its moves like a growing weed as the world begins to rust

leaves fall, dying corpses
as flesh booms from iron horses

Racism Is Not Justified

racism is based on how we are different
but that cannot be justified
we are the same on the inside
we all have feelings
we all have souls
no matter what colour flesh
we all bleed scarlet red
that warm scarlet
we all live off it
we all need it
we are all the same
the same where it truly counts
the inside counts

The 'Good' Life

Wake up in the morning to screaming,
Reporters getting into your personal life,
No privacy,
As you walk down the street,
You are followed constantly by people you do not know
No privacy
You break up with your girlfriend, for the fifth time
It’s on the cover of a magazine
No privacy
Every fucking shit we take,
It’s recorded somewhere
No privacy
You die a tragic death at a young age,
People who you have never met attend your funeral
No privacy
This is what we call the “good” life…

House of Fire

whenever i step in
my spirit bursts in flames
my soul cries in pain
my brain engites in rage
i cannot survive in this house
the pressure
the stress
the gloom
it eats away at me
like fire eats paper
every moment burns my insides
hardens me on the outside
like burnt toast
i become hard and coarse
nobody wants burnt toast
nobody wants me
walls collapse around me
everything turns to ash
everything turns black
every moment is painful

Not Finished

A perfect night
the stars are sparkling bright
staring into the sky,
the little house in the creek
sits nestled under the tall mossy tree
the house aged by nature...beautiful
as the rain starts to pour
the tall mossy tree protects the house and its front door
the mossy tree bears the weight of the sky
as the house is kept dry
more clouds swarm in recklessly
lightning cracks as it sets fire to the tall mossy tree
the tree stands strong....
but i doesn't know if it can last long
as the rain runs down the tree's trunk and roots
like tears

Lie about a Secret

Bandages that cover long healed wounds
Lies that surface over many dead moons
the bloody man of wealth
erects his fortress and lair
upon soil of less substance than air
the healthy man suffers for attentive eye
But when truth is truth and lie is lie
this man surely shall not die
while the entire crowd walks the streets
they wear shiny shoes over filthy feet
as bodies betray the mind
truth is hard to find
words and actions, hollow as space
but then have a look in the eye and face
what unsettling truth found in this place
but as long as we fly as ear less bats
we are nothing but blinded lab rats

Ebony Sweet Feet

Look at the black trees
Peer through the bars
See my disease

Spiked cloves of grass
Mutated pansies
Willows of glass

Green thumb, black thumb
sowing needles
Would you like some?

They call me ebony sweet feet
Not for the shoes I wear
but the people I eat

Pale gnomes painted black
My favorite snack

Seeking eye
