change


A prophecy of change
securely strapped on a gurney
A perfect dose of gigantic proportion
falsified and an illusion to many

Change is when you smell death and fall ill with a disease
Only to find there is a treatment
Change is when brothers woke, unsure of their existence
only to find their cash, is ancient

Change is when an unknown man came to visit
His word, to save you from his fellow despot
Change is when Israel and Palestine seem to be in a circuit
only to find they are cousins befriending a bullet

Change is not Barack Obama Oratory
Change is when a hopeless man cracks a smile
and hatred will never be hereditary
the heavy burden, the hopeful man starts to unpile

cheers

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
