and then some…
end epic, iota hardly seen in an endemic order,
but Angelic, coz Iona is the heartbeat of an eccentric daughter
University of life is puking the adversity in my file,
I covet the philosopher’s stone
coz’ eternity is nigh, while the City
dies from this Covid in the esophagus, throat
Suddenly, the World seems so ominous
about what was solemnly written in the Word,
greed so oblivious

And history will probably
repeat itself if we don’t prostrate,
and end this misery properly
coz’ in death, We don’t
'post straight'

“Life After Death”
Kabelo Maverick Jul 2020
The Laugh Aftermath

Was tough to master Math,
enough to answer last, rather than rebuffed
for being half a Man. Aftercare reformed through
corporal, master’s lash…no wonder we kept our breath,
even when others didn’t care for tomorrow’s Masters’ wrath.
Ironically, we died to shed the stain of fear from our skin,
which chronically defies the bred brain of the heir, our King.
Now, we’re reborn astonishment where our questions
are quenched by demystified witches and purpose
we can and able…we bow in recourse to the accomplishments
mentioned and drenched in multiplied wishes
to purport Cain and Abel

So much affinity lost,
bonded seals broken by
crystallized Egos.
You touch that
Achilles’ heel soft,
but I don’t feel ‘frozen

Good dude

good food for sloth

I can’t stand looking
at the mirror without
a pause...zooming

scheme of things
Words will mould
into Worlds

Curse, or is it reaping
the debt of my Father’s sins?
lost in the lurch, beeping left
on my Mother’s things. I heard
they’re dreaming theft, but I believe
it’s death. Here lies another king…
The stakes are flames, arrays of desire
an inexplicable functuay of light and pain…
I take the blame for playing with fire,
in this despicable display of

Authority within, Apology missing… Feeling a bit under the weather lately, maybe coz I’m feeling lit about what matters innately. What’s the next poem, where’s my nest home, what’s the last hope? I’m vexed, so let me ask the Pope, are you the best? Nope.  Or should I turn it into a rope and pray? Can’t do that without thinking of the hangings, it hurts so I clear my throat…
nay, can’t do that when you’re sinking from the angering. I’m recluse so I

hate the curse…

Imagine, the hole

tension is only
in Sin City

They lied,
it can never be over,
it’s in the eye of
the beholder

Win or lose,
they don’t believe
in forever

Blowin’ in the wind
or loose screws

so they’re deceiving
for pleasure

Jump into the pool
The water is not too cold
Just don’t be the fool
Be immortal or

Life Crossed My Mind

Moved the mess on file,

look past the knife
it only insinuates what happens…
When you amass or fly…
Moving towards
