TURN DOWN THE AVENUE

Folder: 
MEANDERTHAL MAN

 

As I turn

down the avenue

and walk

with furtive steps;

the sinister plot

of the modern world

is intensely playing

in my head

 

the scent of papaya

& urine;

the grime covered

apocalypse

of future hellholes

we are entering

 

and the insidious laughter

ensues;

it is disconcerting

to hear the mockery;

the dripping acid

of sarcasm

 

the flesh boils

at the mention

of the sins

I can not commit

in daylight

without southern cross

the burning arrow

in the air

 

I must surrender—

this is a battle

that I can not win

yet still I drag myself

insistent on victory
