POLITICAL OSMOSIS


Chimney knows its work
It stands tall silently and obediently
The smoke walks proudly in the sky
Fogging and screaming for attention

The smoke never begs freedom,
It bags and beckons freedom.
It ways are clearly smoky & poky
It prayer bears it surname

'Let their plans go up in smoke'
The smoking true in the fireplace
Feigning or fending, it's careless
The will of the cloud is in accord

Fire burns under bellow
Woods & coals flame in pain
Chimney guide the escape route
The smoke escapes & tells the story

Like Van Gogh & Picasso paints
Hanging in gallery above the roofs
And grabs all the gazing glory
Above the glaring sky

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
