Tear - Poem by Kevin Patrick

A tear is a wasted plea on an ocean of indifference
Sufficing no exhaustion for the bedlam of the feeble
Enacting too their ticketed automated destruction
Through raptures engines of capacious waves
Crushing and subsuming their existence to a
Repeating Echo fading at the dusk of a dying day

A tear is unfulfilling rein cheque for self-fulfilment
For a permanent position situated in the wasteland
Of certified mediocrity, in the medicine of dentistry
Proscribed to Dinosaurs forsaken too eviction
By circumstantial landlords hired by providence
To eliminate rudiments of the honourably inept

A tear is drawing the katana to perform Hara-Kari
In the middle of the second act of your existence
Performed To a dwindling audience of derelicts
Who will gladly applaud when stealing your clothes
Debasing twice what you earned in sacrifice
For the glory of nothing in the spite of yourself

A tear is everything that I am, and made to weep for
flesh, bone and ash
