Two Sides Are A Coin - Poem by Kebe Iwara

Spin chap!
Two sides are a coin.

Before the creditor's
hand or before the thief purloin.

Calm your weeping conscience
up again and stand.

Game! For chap,
two sides are a coin
sin? A subtler assent
makes it light.

Up and down, left and right our silly lives
are minted
but i pray the side
that lie
when i die
be the one sentimented

    Lovely poem! ' but I pray the side that lie when I die be the one sentimented' Love the lines. Your poem reminded me of my own poem 'Like a coin'. Please read if you get a chance. (Report) Reply

    well written....in as much as the poem may seem simplistic...that fact that a coin could be employed to determine or decide a game gives this poem the deeper meaning that reviewers can only appreciate (Report) Reply

    'be the one sentimented'
