Life Puns. - Poem by Driss Ezzireg

Words set a scheme for us all to dream.
The rise of the moon or that of the sun
Sets miles of imagination for us to run.
The pun of life reasons the right of death
To exist, to resist the nothingness of will.
Searchlights may not be as bright as darkness still.
In might or in sight seers may scare birds in flight.
The return of a newly born to his mother's womb
Weighs more on human lore than bites of worm.
No breath lasts longer in span than the life of a madman
Who cruises through life unaware of gusts of sins and winds.
Since when prince‘s worth outvalues the common man's dirt?
Hard labor in jest brings more happiness than riches in rest.
Silliness, carelessness or laziness bear riper fruit than earnest flute.
Yes, who denies words set a scheme for us all to dream?
