"We shall not cease from exploration and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started
and know the place for the first time." (T S Eliot)
"A dark and chanted verse is what I am." (

THE POET

The world scares me.
It takes too much.
It loves deceit.
It discards and culls.

The times grind me.
They swiftly change.
They stay the same.
They never improve.

People taunt me.
They look for faults.
They never think.
They rebuke and mock.

Rulers rob me.
They twist the law.
They lie and dupe.
They misuse the poor.

God watches me.
He sees and hears.
He counts the words.
He knows how it ends.
