Heroes - Poem by The MadLad

Tonight,
I will be the puppeteer
and you,
my harlequin
in stygian setup
on scratchy glass dais
mad
we shall dance
segued
setting ablaze
the sleeping audience
with despair


We shall be heroes
We shall be heroes


Tonight,
you can ride time
and I
will be your acolyte
through the misty woods
flowers drooping
we shall
sing of love
and the rainbow's story
showering over dead soldiers
and sinning sinners
the golden light


We shall be heroes
We shall be heroes


Tonight,
I will be a poet
and you,
all my poems
over spilled tears
and overturned beers
like silence
we shall speak
the language of infinity
breaking
all the barbed barriers
of time


We shall be heroes
We shall be heroes


Tonight,
you can kiss the sun
but I
will kiss you
in the void of space
where death freezes
we shall
paint our lives
as one
laughing at fears
like innocent toddlers
a galaxy new!


Tonight, we shall be heroes
We shall be heroes

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Inspired by the maverick singer-songwriter-painter-actor-thi nker-director (true versatile genius) David Bowie's song of the same name.

...btw 'harlequin' here literally refers to the mute character in traditional pantomime, masked and generally in colored costumes..and not any comic character!
