Phutile Philosophy - Poem by Cento Poet

I look outside and see my life
The further I walk, the further I'm lost
Upon this tragic nothing could be a soother
my tears are filling the water even more

Silence is the most gracious orchestra
Ara rah
Tamboloso kiokio!

Words are fun.
HA- you ask why?
To leave others in a daze

The beaver felt a sudden shiver
I shit
Therefore I am
I need to let it out some way
Some day you’ll maybe do the same
I hate the way i love you
Evil should not friendship kill

Am I a poet?
Am I an artist?
I'm sure my work's not done.
Tides rock the fish to sleep
Yet an uncertain child within
Was cracked open
But today I am happy.
