what isn’t so

what isn’t so is there to see
awash in our humanity
the fabled price we’ve come to owe
the distance we have left to go

amid the many lies and smears
the finger paints of hands unseen
the manacle that holds us down
the last drop in the old canteen

i wish that what was never there
was always where it never was
but noble lies are still just lies
and truthful is as truthful does

the splattering is in full phase
the course: spaghetti bolognese
but some won’t eat or eat but slow
filled up with all
that isn’t

  1. Your poetry for some reason reminds me of another poet writer I follow. He hasn’t blogged for a bit though. I had to read it twice and this is what my mind latched on to…bull shit!!!! ahahahaha.BS in all it’s many forms. Sometimes we are fed so much of that, it’s hard to see what is for what it really is…sometimes we won’t ever see it because always three sides to the story..yours, mind and then the truth. Add the fourth one and you get an awesome confuzzlement ..the fourth being the truth as seen or perceived by others.
