17 To 71

With a handful of memories

And a pocket full

Of dreams,

Reality screening

Gearing up to a scream,

Who would have thought

Way back at seventeen

Reversing the numbers

Would be such a different scene.

Holding On To The Moon

Holding on to the moon

What else to do ?

The days of the scorching sun

And the whistling wind

Had long passed,

The moon seemed as quiet

As their lives now were,

As cold as their bones

In the late night air,

And all the romance

Of the long love affair,

Danced in their stare

Holding on to the moon.

The Consequence Of Chaos

The idiot fringes

Raced to promote banning

Anything that didn’t fit

Into their narrow minds and vision,

From freedom of speech,

Songs and playlists,

Pronouns and words

To gender classification,

The neocon philosophy

Echoed in jest as its hands

Directed the music

The politically correct,

Neutered mass danced to,

Unaware they were dancing

Closer and closer

Towards the fingers and the grasp

Of the hands

They were trying to run away from.
