the story

July 27, 2009

i once heard the story
a story of a man;
a liar, a cheat,
who did whatever he can.

fantastic tales
of riches and taste
good of looks,
–an incredible waste.

i once heard the story
a story of a fool;
a joker, an accomplice,
the ultimate tool.

wrapped in doubt
imbibed with hate,
both had lives
they’d eventually create.

together a team
of motley ambitions,
never to discover
their absolute objective.

i once heard the story
a story of a prince,
lonely in his castle
installed without his vassals
–a long time since…

old and rickety
his honour remains
true through death’s deception
and incredible disdain.

wrought like an engine,
combustive fire;
pedal to the metal
and ultimate desire.

i once heard the story
a story called “life”
crooked and cranked
full of grief and strife.

i once heard the story
a story of rhyme;
once again i’ll leave it
for yet another time….
