Modern Tradition


The shrieking will of desire,

Has eclipsed the sanity,

Tempted rain of satire,

Rides nude on vanity,


Selfishness halting freedom,

Integrity masked forever,

Unknown religion is contaminated,

Stupidity rules being “Clever”,


I have learned to fly,

Burning my family for Good,

“Everything is fair in Love & War”,

A phrase – “literally never understood”,


Where is that ambiguous sky?

Containing ruthless battered emotions,

My half baked nationality bleeding,

Incessant scars of alien promotions.
