The Cheating One

No one suspects a single thing
They think she’s off having a fling
That’s what she was wont to do
That’s why her brains out, I blew
-
I sit on my throne just like the lords
While she is buried beneath the boards
I went to the cops to report her missing
The affairs made them think she was just off kissing
-
Off kissing one of her many lovers
But she’s beneath me, wrapped in bed covers
I feel no guilt for what I’ve done
She was the spiteful, cheating one

Springtime Sunshine

Glistening sunshine dances on stones
In stark contrast to last night’s wind’s moans
Springtime sunshine brings everything to life
Forgetting winter worries, easing your strife
-
It shakes the hands of the outreaching trees
And kisses the flowers buzzing with bees
It warms the land and warms the heart
A perfect time for a perfect start
-
Above, great white whales swim their blue sea
To us it’s the sky, such a sight to see
As sun rays cascade through N2 gas
A gift from God, how he lets them so pass
-
So how shall you Spring to life?
Like Christ himself to the tune of a fife
Arise from your tomb and be a gift to the world
Break free from your chrysalis like a butterfly unfurled

James, James

James, James, his only aim’s
To join the marines and play patriot games
He’s built like the tank that he’ll one day drive
He won’t leave a single enemy alive
-
Once a month he runs through the mountains
With no rest breaks or water fountains
Kitted out in commando clothes
With a bag on his back, on he goes
-
I can see it now, General James
Leading an army through gunfire and flames
Medals and honours, he’ll earn a few
General James, I salute you

Three Doors: Go Ahead, Choose

Right, left, or centre
Choose carefully which door you enter
Because behind one single door
Is everything that you’ve wished for
-
To choose one of the other two
Pray to God you never do
Because inside each other room
Is where you’ll surely find your doom
-
In one room is all you wanted
But out of reach, by dreams you’re haunted
You can see all you’ve wished for
But they’re just dreams and nothing more
-
The one you want, the one, the lone
Will put you into the friendzone
For another you must settle
What might’ve been stings like a nettle
-
You get a job, your dream career
But future hopes just disappear
Others pass you, less skilled, more young
While you still stuck on the first rung
-
In family life you want a child
But this dream, too, is far too wild
You try and try, and try again
The doctor says “No”, hopes die then
-
Nothing comes to you who waits
You are let down by the fates
You have nothing, only dreams
God is deaf to your poor screams
-
This room is heaven compared to the other
In there you’ll wish you were another
That room is hell, hell on earth
You’ll regret your blessed birth
-
In this room you’ll find no love
And be alone til you’re above
You’ll search for meaning and solace in pleasure
You’ll drink, take drugs at your leisure
-
You’ll lose your job and lose your home
The sky will be an iron dome
And you its prisoner on this earth
With nothing but suffering, pain and hurt
-
As you sit begging on the ground
You’ll see life all around
People on their way to work
Friends joking with a smirk
-
Lovers walking arm in arm
You will wish to do them harm
You’ll peek in your paper cup
Not enough for a single sup
-
A single sup of your only friend
Alcohol, your friend until the end
One day it will do you the greatest favour
And take your life, and be your saviour
-
So, right, left or centre
Choose carefully which door you enter
Because behind one single door
Is everything that you’ve wished for
-
To choose one of the other two
Pray to God you never do
Because inside each other room
Is where you’ll surely find your doom
-
Your chances are but one in three
The choice has been left up to thee
This in no joke, this is no ruse
The choice is yours, go ahead, choose

Maybe, Just Maybe

You’re established, you’re established
Now that is sure established
But I’ma tell you some’ing
Man I am up and coming
-
Maybe I’ve read one or two from you
Maybe, just maybe, I’ve read but a few
Maybe i’s not enough to consider me a fan
But maybe, just maybe, I don’t give a damn
After all, I’m just me, just me, just one man
Doin’ everything that it is, that I can
-
I’ll be rejected, be rejected
One day maybe accepted
Then all my en-er-gies can finally be directed
Into the fan’-as-y that at one time was projected
Upon the whole expanse that was my future life
That wasn’t up to chance, wasn’t cut out by that knife
-
Then maybe it’ll be you, readin’ one or two
Maybe you’ll like ‘em and read more than a few
Then maybe, just maybe, I’ll make a fan of you
And I’ll just keep on writin’, keep on powerin’ through
-
But maybe, just maybe, I’m doin’ it for me
Not doin’ it for you, doin’ it to be free
Makin’ somethin’, creatin’ somethin’
To ease my mind that’s beatin’, thumpin’
To keep myself from fuckin’ jumpin’
To keep my heart alive and pumpin’!
-
I’ll tell thee somethin’, tell thee somethin’
Not maybe, no maybe, I will be somethin’

Death Comes

Death comes to us now and then
We tell him “Leave! Come again.”
But to our pleas he pays no heed
Death will surely do his deed
-
Once he has his life he leaves
In his wake a family grieves
And when they’re buried in the ground
What of them can be found
-
All that’s left are memories
We must hold on tight to these
The little things that we did love
About the person now above
-
How they spread their cheeky smile
When they joked with you a while
How they said things when it mattered
To comfort, guide when all was scattered
-
How they lived for you each day
How they loved you every way
How they shared good times with you
And shared the bad, and powered through
-
For every little me-mor-y
Find part of your mind that’s free
Think of them and take a pause
And treasure loved ones now because
-
Death comes to us now and then
We tell him “Leave! Come again.”
But to our pleas he pays no heed
Death will surely do his deed
