his dead flesh
infested with
maggots was
willing the
poets fucked
soul went
numb a
pestilent
street shooting
bum deaf deafer
dumb she whom he
loved is getting humped
by another beach bum
libidinous empty drum
who lives off
her crumbs
she who was
his only
muse abdicated
his poetic throne
his dreamless
kingdom
memories
of his washed
away hope
an empty
bottle of
old monk rum
his solitary
soulless
spirit
still
under
her
thumb

Once I Was a Boss Now I Am a Fucked Slave, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
a castrated crab
a hermit in a cave
i have to abide
by fucked rules
i have to behave
in prison clothes
clean shave
get my index
finger printed
my pictorial ass
god save
aah for old
times my freedom
i lyrically crave
i am the joker
in the pack
a crazy
kings knave
poetically
he rants
i rave
as my posterior
bleeds festers
wave after wave
i will soon be dead
lowered into
an unmarked grave
i have become a
coward once
oh once i too
was brave
let it be known
to all and sundry
those who fucked me
i forgave

peacefully though
some beg at allah s gates
building mosques
madrasas is more
more important
than building hope
the beggars empty
bowl empty plate
