barabbas …

murderous traitor
count the dead in this nation
how can anyone
that claims that there is a god
crucify the innocent
instead of the beast
do they long to bathe in blood
that of our children
or of those too poor to beg
for their god’s mercy
are silver coins of greed’s realm
worth denying sacred words
will the holy bed
be soiled with the putrid
lies of one man’s lust
or will the faithful remove
each bloody nail from faith’s hands


the eyes have it…


reflections seen in the mirror are said to be realistic
images that represent the true status of the viewer
but the mirror often lies or is misread for purpose


another reason not to grow up…


the mind becomes trapped
distance between right and wrong
seems even greater
mirage of reality
fool’s lifelong destination
