Rough the Dawn

Rough is the dawn,

with pleasures to pawn

for a day.

Like pine needles thick,

just a moment to prick

all your pain away.

Shade is a bird,

a song’s just a word

if you feel it.

Rough is the dawn,

the darkness is gone

today will be lit.


I’m A Lyrical Gangster – On Love

Satisfaction is a reaction
when every faction
of your fraction
has an attraction
to the preservation of perfection.

Indulge in the essence
of commonsense
and you will sense
the presence of
the innocence of
coincidence and incidents-
instead of the negligence
of our presidents, there will
come a time for
incense and competence;
luminous not frivolous,
togetherness not separateness.

Give and cherish
all you receive,
begin to conceive
the love
you believe.
