    Knocking

    Beauty in the heart
    Is beauty on the fringe
    Can we see where it starts?
    Can we shake it in the binge?
    Will it be the curse we part?
    Will it be the end we singe?
    A walking piece of art
    Fragile hope on which we hinge

    Collapsed insufferable prosaic mess
    Is the blur
    Is the sight
    Defeating intellect’s potential might
    Surrounding pillars
    Which seethe of fright
    A red smouldering, vile-lent hue
    Eclipsing all light
    My heart is slew

    You keep on knocking

    My eyes turn to the desert’s flower
    In the time of her most desperate
    Most secretive
    Most real
    Hour
    Imagine humanity’s most precious jewel
    Imagine this and make it dual
    I hear the secret suffering rule
    Profound injustice smothered in gruel
    Drowning in calorific cruel
    If I could take it away, to my pool
    I’d dig and dare your salvation’s tool
    Instead I stare
    Powerless, the fool

    I keep on knocking

    I hear the fountain of the mob
    It says you can’t change it
    Doesn’t matter
    Is not your job
    Ignorance is the people’s bliss
    They’ve no idea,
    The misery they seed
    They miss

    And do we get upset?
    When blinds are drawn
    At the mercy of my own fascist butcher vet
    When hours are seconds in which we bet
    And souls are drowned
    In the confines of prison: reflections net
    I stand unclean
    No time to weep,
    The mask is set

    I’ll keep on knocking.
