Poetic Crisis


__________Crying Lullabies___________


Hush little baby don't say a word,
God's got a knife to a mockingbird,
And if my knife do dare cut,
Would you cry or keep your mouth shut?
If your quiet i'll buy you a ring,
A sparkling diamond and treat you like a queen,
But if you cry it shall be your last,
For my knife will kill our past,
This is my lullaby,
To the girl who chose to cry,
I see her only in my dreams,
So for the past 7 years all i've done is sleep,
So many angels being stabbed,
Dreams are addicting when it's all you have...

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
