Shout it from the Hills

Shout it from the Hills

 

How easily we are subdued and seduced

to lie supine having rolled over in acquiescence

Have we joined the ranks of the moronic hordes

those who are the shiftless and hapless wanderers

 

We are fed a diet to subjugate original thought

advertisements impress the minds of the mindless

The masses shuffle about on an aimless trajectory

Love at Last

Love at Last

 

My sexual awakening took place encased in a tomb

a claustraphobic space which haunted my thoughts

I existed in this obscure place fearful of exposure

my desires and yearnings seen as obstacles

 

To articulate my orientation would create living hell

Why do I write?

Why do I Write?

 

Do I write to vent my feelings

Take Heart

Take Heart

 

We have lived a worthy life without any recompense

abided by laws not of our making or doing

Insults and prejudice we have bravely borne
