Friend-ship. The journey to sweet, soulful serendipity trying to find you're Shams.
Tabriz, a rambunctious dervish willing to roam the sea's.
And start afresh.

snakes in the flesh divert your path....with more fake friends then stars in the sky.
Self centred, power-driven, dog eat dog.
eclipsing you're soul's purpose, malevolent demi-god.

pseudo smiles like polystyrene tiles, fickle.
clothes obsessed, material like textiles. Sickle.
hammering ostentatious actions.
What's yours is mine and what's mine is yours.

find Rumi's Cave and basque in solitude
but be wary, you may become weary..
so eventually it is important to find your mirror.
A reflection of yourself in the reflection of companionships heart.

sure start, true mentors teach first.
the poisoned chalice, camaraderie a blessing and a curse
the fallacy of friends revealed through stabbing stealth.
But a true acquittance will help you admire your inner self.

through and through. Means if they go down, you do too.

2 boxes, 1 window

she's so self-righteous
he's apparently pious 
Driven to a false truth like two flat tires,
Kwik Fit, but there's no quick fix.

He enjoys sitting on his window sill, still.
The Street has Talent.
Judicial law got him thinking,
fit chick walks past.
Reading Maya Angalou, with no clue.
The caged bird is really just a bird in a cage.
for him they should stay caged
'SANDWICH PLEASE.' he shouts

Bitchin' as usual,
Piff girl walked by,
critiquing what she wore,
she's got a sketty face that whore
staring down as she swore
But a pseudo personality is pure she assured herself.
Cos' all the dirt's on the outside she told herself
be true to thy self-righteous...
she read it all wrong.

Dividing the Pie

Divide and Rule.

A simple equation = Man X given a gun + Man Z given a gun.
One will be triumphant and the dividers have already won,
either way they'll get a piece of the pie.

circumstance divisible by the circumference
which dictates the die a meter.
chances for survival? Acute. 180 dead, 90 alive.

natural resources reflect the reaction,
sometimes resulting in an inaccurate inaction
or the secret sponsorship of a rivalling faction.

Enticed by a just cause, only to realize 'justice' had a clause.
And it was Santa Claus Plus Consumerism.
Capitalism multiplied by Christmas.
Or the long division of ethnics

Neo-colonialism - More-fierce than an agent smith in Nicaragua.
Contra's. In. Abundance.
Captivity. incorporated, with arithmetic
or Covert. Invading. Army.

Imperial or empirical formulae now defined
by standard deviation Or
diplomatic deceptive devices.

euphemisms makes the modern apart tides legal.
preliminary self defence is especially regal.
like punching you before I think you'll punch me.
the logic is assuring, I'm sure you agree....

Lucrative arms bless twisted palms,
as war lords thank the polytheistic heavens
for many blinded AK's..

47 lay dead in the ditch that day.
47 million made that week.
Sales of Arms.
Maimed Arms reach out for hope.
But the only scope available is for the long range sniper...
