Poppy Fields Forever
Peter Balkus Nov 2015
Those poppy fields were lifeless,
but now they shine with light.
The war has made them bleeding,
the Peace has made them smile.

Each flower is a soldier,
who sacrificed his life,
who gave up his own future
to make our future count.

Each flower tells a story
of man and woman's fight,
you hear them in the glory
of petals shining bright.

Shhh, quiet, can you hear this?
The flowers -  making sound.

The unsung heroes singing
the song of joy - and life.

Good Monkey
Peter Balkus Aug 2015
I've been good monkey today,
I didn't disobey in any way and it made my guard pleased.
I deserve a banana, and that what really matters to me.

I've had some stupid thoughts about stupid things,
but I managed to rid them off of my head.
I'm really proud of myself.
I deserve my banana. Yes!

So where's my banana, where?

If I Had A Pussy
Peter Balkus Apr 2016
If I had a *****, I would own the world,
I would be the king (the queen, to be frank),
I'd have all men thumbed under my ****.
If I had a *****, I'd own whole of the land.

Peace would be upon me, and upon us all,
for ******* can do things penises able not,
***** is like heaven, ***** is like hell,
when ***** in *****, devil loses strenght.

If I had a *****, I would spread the love
in neighbouring cities divided by walls,
I'd make enemies to be friends again,
and war would be over, happy would be man.

If I had a *****, there'd be more of us
fighting for Peace, Love and the happy times.
One more to the Peace floor, to the war one less -
if you had a *****, you would understand.
Peter Balkus Sep 2018
I know one day Death will come
and take me to her home.
She will give me a place to stay,
she will feed me, she will be my friend.

But she doesn't know,
no, she doesn't know,
that I will never be her
- I'll always be yours.

I'll be dancing on my grave,
I'll be laughing at her,
I'll be singing the song of joy.

No, I will never be hers,
for I'll always be yours.

I'll be holding you tight,
I'll be kissing your eyes,
I'll be whispering in your ear,
that I'm yours,
that I'll never be hers.

I'll always be yours,
for I'll never be hers.

The Town
Peter Balkus Oct 2015
This town, where the old church sings his song of silence,
and houses have no windows,
no smiling faces in them,
this town was mine, for a while,
but then she came and said to this town "goodbye".

Kissing Tulips
Peter Balkus May 2016
I've been kissing tulips today,

Not as great though

I've been kissing tulips today

It wasn't the same though,

I'm sitting in my room,
believing that I can change the world,
knowing that I can't,

I'm sitting here, alone,
I'm thinking of those who are suffering,
those who've lost everything,
those, who will never feel like home.

I'm sad,
feeling like crying,
wishing to save the world,
knowing well that I won't,

but something tells me
to keep on trying.

Brain And Heart
Peter Balkus Aug 2018
Brain is to think
heart is to feel,
brain's will is strong,
but free is heart's will.

Brain is heart’s fault
heart - brain's worst mate,
brain - love's worst foe,
love - heart's best friend.

Brain says Oh yes!
when heart says No!
When brain says Stop!
heart says Let's go!

Brain is to think,
heart is to feel.
Brain's will is strong,
but heart breaks brain's will.

I tuned in to a Christian radio,
they had an interesting debate
about the power of Jesus,
about life after death.

I phoned them to take part,

Sea Shells
Peter Balkus Sep 2018
I like sea shells,
because they are not waiting
to be found.

They are fine on their own,
sleeping in the sand.
They don't need anything else
to smile.

The roar of the sea
and the whisper of the wind
is enough.
Written on 22.09.2018 after short visit to a seaside in Brighton, UK.

Sea Never Rages
Peter Balkus Apr 2016
Sea never rages,
it’s only us who call it raging,
when waves get high
and hit the shore,
when wind blows hard
and howls,
it’s only us who smell the anger.

Sea never rages,
is always quiet,

Royal James Bond
Peter Balkus Oct 2015
James Bond is cool
but I'm not sure
the armed guy should be the one
to rule,
to save a belle
from hell.

A man with a gun - it could be anyone,
not only Bond.
But guns are wrong,
and we all know, it won't
make world a better place, oh no.
Violence is not the way.

I'd like to see Prince William as James Bond,
with bunch of flowers in his hands,
instead of gun.
That would be fun.

And Duchess Kate
as real Bond's girl,
always a smile away from her man.

That would be great.

Patient In Love (Prayer)

Let me be patient in Love,
like patient is olive tree,

Because the moon
and because the stars.

Because light matters
when it's dark.

Because they need
a bit of silence
to survive.

I'm A Robot
Peter Balkus Oct 2015
I'm not a robot, or... actually
I am the one. I live remotely
controlled by someone larger than me
someone who's clearly invisible.

I always do what I have been told
by someone who can decide it all.
I work, I sleep, I have some fun,
I didn't choose to live and I
won't choose the day I'll have to die.

All I can choose is what colour of shoes
I want to buy, what kind of suit,
what will I eat today, how many
sugars I want, ketchup or mayo
or garlic sauce, Pepsi or Tango,
take away or eat in. And the rest
is in someone else's mind and hands.

In spite of it all I love myself
as a robot and I don't wanna be no one else.

(That's what I have been set up to say).

it would do anything.

Be careful

Sitting in Starbucks
drinking sweet coffee from Christmas red cap.
Not many people inside. Table for two, me and I,
music in background, quite nice,
at least I don't mind, but who does mind
when festive time has just arrived?

Enjoy your coffee, my friend,
but in the meantime, have a look outside
the window,
at rough sleepers and their hands,
open and empty.
This year
Christmas came early again.

Influenced by Alphonse Legros's sculpture "Female Torso"*

Look at this,
have you ever seen
anything more perfect than that?
Wold you ever say no
to this unearthly shapes?

Look at those curves,
they are but one angel's curve.

It is more than you could want,
more than just a body to touch,
more than just a meat to ridge.

It is something worthy living for.

To Meet The Queen
Peter Balkus Oct 2016
To meet the queen - my biggest dream.
To look Her in the eye and say Hi
Your Majesty. Long time no see.
What's going down? I mean: How do You do?
It was my dream to stand here, in front of You.

Was it Your dream too, to see me here, out of the blue?
Noo? Oh, then booooo!

It was my dream to bend my knees in front of You.
But it hurts, Jeez! Can I stand up now, please?!
Okay, okay, I'm going now,
Your Majesty has had enough.
Before I go, let me, please, tell you this short story:

I said to my friend I want to meet The Queen,
he said to me: "No chance. Pigs won't fly, dude."
I still don't know, if  he was talking about me
or You.
