Rhyme or Reason


Plato
Maimonides
Falaquera

Play-Doh
Godspeed
Common-Era

Rob my rhyme
Strip it down
Lyric’s crime

An appeal to images
Clashes with reason
I reveal pop quizzes
Ashes left of treason

21st Century rants
Lost centuries’ dance
Imagination’s contamination
Pretend its prophetic formulation

Cerebral capacity plagues the right brain
Cathedral tenacity the Hague a stain
Where did I go
Does it matter
I bet you are wondering the same…

Return to the theme
Paint the cream
Aesthetics prosthetics
Both false both crutches
One injures one touches
Hail the poet, the painter, the throw it, the tainter
The masquerader, the concealer, the liar, the teacher

The masses rejection
Is mere confirmation
Contemplation
Meditation
Mental onanism

Who knows
I know I don’t know
But pretend to know who knows
despite not not knowing

ahh :) I like this a lot. The Handicap of Definition... A nation who doesn't think, but is a THINK.

When it comes to perfect words... I am handicapped, but you always use them beautifully.
