Giving joy, getting joy, never coy,
Often pretty, always called a toy,
She sells all that there is to deploy.

And there is she who is demure;
A teacher whose job is secure.
Some say that all teachers are pure.

And there is he who is a professor;
He is his father’s successor;
Just like his father’s predecessor.

The first one we call a whore;
She prostitutes her body more and more;
But the other ones we adore.

The professor prostitutes his knowledge.
He also sells his precious time.
And the teacher too makes the same pledge;
Especially while she is in her prime.

We all prostitute something every day;
Yet only the first one’s a prostitute; yay!

So ....
What does it mean ... ?
to be .... " Corrupt " .... ?!?

Well these days ...
It would seem ...

A good place to start ...
is within ... " Government " ... !!!

Allegations of moves ...
" Corrupters " .... use ....
is ... " Regular News " ...
from ... Government Crews ... !!!

So ...
What's the score ... ?
with ... Government Lords ... ?!?
who have ... Powers to enforce ...

" Some " .... it seems
are now .... " Bought "
to affect the course ...
of ... Future Laws ... !!!!!

Surely .....
Something's ... UP ... !?!
when those ... CLEARLY IN ...
A position of ... " TRUST " ...
Affect the lives of ....

.... " ALL OF US " .....

because of .... Bribes ....
from .... " Corporate Ties " .... !!!!!

So .....
Does this mean ... ?
that ... Corporate Teams ...
who make ... " BIG MONEY " ... !!!!!  

" Cannot " .... make bucks ....
without being ... " Corrupt " ... ?!!!?

" SURELY NOT !!!!! " ....

Those at ... THE TOP ...
I'm sure would say ...

"We don't get paid,
to cook up plots !"

So .....
What's the need ... ?
to bribe .... MP's ....
or ... worse still ... LORDS ... !!!
to .... " MODEL " .... Laws ....
that ... Don't Help ... The Poor ...

It's been done before ...
and that's for ... " SURE " ... !!!

and it ... " Rarely Seems "
that they're found ... " GUILTY " ... !?!
or face .... " Penalties " .... ?!? ....
that affect ... " Their Rights " ...
to ... AVOID ... Prison Time ...
for what's clearly ... " A CRIME !!! " ...

They affect ... The Masses lives ...
just for .... A Money Prize .... !!!!! ...

" Corruption and Lies " ....
seems to be ... " Their Life " ...

But ....
" Corruption " ... It's Clear ...
doesn't end with ... " Peers " ...

" Corrupted Files " ....
seem to set the ... Profiles ...
of those .... Online ....
with ... " Corrupted Minds " ...
Like .... " PAEDOPHILES " .... !!!!!!!!

So .....

If your P.C. ...
Starts to ... STALL ...
You've been ... Surfing ....

TOO MUCH PORN .... !!!!!!!!!!!

The clear sign being ....

….... Ofcourse .......

What is called a .......

" Trojan Horse " ...... !!!!!!!!!!

NOT THAT ...
I would know ... !!!!!

"Somebody" ....
Told me so .... !!!!!!!!!

I've watched my share of shows ...
that feature .... " Ho's and Pro's " ...

Does that make ME ...
....... " Corrupt " ........ ?

Well ...
I guess ... ?

It kinda ... does ... !?!

But .... " Corrupted Flows " .... ?
Within .... My Prose .... ???

Well ....
Just like coke ....

My answer's .... NO .... !!!!!

So ....
" Corruptive " ... quotes ...
I choose to ... " CHOKE " ...

No Tell ....
No Ho ....

But ... corruption now ...
is how ... cameras roll ...

and that's just how ...
the story goes ...
in most of these ...

.... Net Videos .... !!!!!!

Does corruption mean
A need to see ...
These girls in scenes ...
that were ... Once Deemed ...
as being ... " UNCLEAN " ... !!!!!

Well ....
I guess ... that's me ... !???!

But ....
What about .... THEM .... ???

Women ... YES ...
who ... OPEN LEGS ...
and ... Show Off ... breasts ...
to get ... FAT Cheques ... !!! ...
for ..... Having Sex ......

Are they .... " Corrupt " .... !?!
for doing .... Stuff ....

That ... in the past ...
would of had them ... cast ...
as ... You Know ... What ...

.... " A Dirty Slut " .... !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well ...
NOT .... nowadays ....
as long as they ....

........ GET PAID ........ !!!!!!!!!

Now ... i'm no prude ...
But ... " Corruption's " ...

...... MOVED ......

in how it's ... Viewed ... ???

which is why I asked ...
at the ... Very Start ...

" What does it mean ...
to be ... Corrupt ... ??? "

It seems to me ...
that ... being corrupt ...
can fulfil many dreams ...
of ... " Living It Up " ... !!!!!!

So ....
what would you do ... ?
if you met a ... crew ...
who ... Offered you ...
A ... " Load of Cash " ...
to ... "Kill" ... another man ...
or to ... Build a plan ...
to ... " INVADE " ...
" Foreign Lands " ...

Well ....
if you would ... " Accept " ...
that type of ... " Payment " ...

Do you think ... ?
" You should " ... ?!?

" Corruption " ... could ...
Affect ... You Too ... !!!!?!!!!

or people ... who ....
are ... " Close to You " ...

which goes to prove ....
" Corruptive Moves " ....
can lead to ... Abuse ...

The kind of ... Abuse ...
that has ... " Moral Issues " ... !!!

So .....
Maybe it's ... " Morals " ... ?
that have ... " Hit the Rocks " ...
and have now been ... " Lost " ...

So .....
What's the ... " COST " ... ?

A lump sum ... payment
to affect ... " Government " ...
which may well ... Affect You ...
more than it does ... " THEM " ... !!!

So ....
Do you think it's ... COOL
when this causes ... " Problems "

Like todays ....
" Credit Crunch " ... !?!

i'll leave that to you ...
to ... Consider ... your view ...

But ....
Here's my last question ... ?
for corruption to ... LESSEN ...
in this .... " Modern Age " ....
where ... "CASH" ... is the aim ...

whether by ... " Getting Laid "
or by ... " Law Breaking Ways "

When you think of this stuff ...
What does it mean to you ... ?

To be one who's .....

.... " Corrupt " ....
Having just watched the docu-movie, Cartel Wars .... this poem came to mind ...
Nida Mahmoed Jan 15
Women are Human,
When you utterly feel
the power of this one line,
World will automatically turns so divine!

Gaze on that woman by the train.
With curves like gunpowder
that will shoot fireworks again.
As her and I once were.

Since then, of women, I've abstained.
My chest is a pyre
to the damsel I couldn't retain;
fondness that won’t expire.


You say I could never attain
and imply I'm a liar!?
Or you think either me insane
or least she's miswired?

The evidence on my brain -
melancholy, ire -
the despondent husk that remains,
need you more enquire?


...True, of her, no displays of pain;
eyes that jolt not tire,
poker voice tipping no disdain
legs that feed desire!

For her, gone love is not a chain
hidden by attire
or flushed down a forgotten drain.
It merely retired.

Love like hers was the wind and rain
to my earth and fire.
"My woman says that she prefers to marry no one
over me, not even if Jupiter himself should seek her.
She says (these things), but what a woman says to her desirous lover
is fitting to write on the wind and on fast-flowing water."
Poem 70 - Catullus
serpentinium Jul 11
pompeii runs through our veins,
hot with the taste of ash & decay.

some of us are fortunate enough to
become ruins; others are ruinous,
sepulchers of epidemics, air-born, contagious.
a disease that could make London a cemetery.

we dress ourselves up like relics, clothed
in silk and gold and gossamer,
as if they could one day be armor.
as if they could bring us safety.
as if we deserve such things when everything we touch rusts.

it takes only twenty-two years for the
average person to realize they are a weapon.
that words are knives and actions are razor blades,
as if to remind the living that we
came into the world screaming—
and we have never been silent since.

we are the Morrigans, the cursed women,
those whose destiny is entwined with death.
we court death, invite her to our dinner table every night,
let her sleep in the guest room, leave the doors and
windows unlocked for her.

death, we realize as women forced to bear
the weight of the dead on our shoulders,
never comes as a thief.
she comes as a lover, smelling of lilac, a grin
too white and too large to be human.

still, we invite her in,
because even death, regardless of form,
makes for better company than the empty dark.
inspired by the line: we are naught but rot and ruin.
You are beautiful
No matter your size, skin color, religion or sexuality
Don't ever let anyone doubt that
Life would be boring without diversity

You are beautiful
and the lenght of your dress tonight doesn't justify anyone calling you a slut nor gives them permission to grab your tight
Only you can give them consent
And remember to say no is your right

You are beautiful
wear those strechmarks with pride
They are perfectly normal and natural
Don't look at them as flaws
Your body is a miracle that you don't need to hide

You are beautiful
Don't forget to love yourself
My type is tall,
My type is dark hair-
My type is kind,
My type is brown eyes-

My type is witty with a smile so clean,
A smile so natural, a smile so wide-
Not sure what it was, I must've implied,
But I'm sure of it now, I must firstly confide-
My feelings for you, I need not must hide,
If your name was Bonnie, then I'd be your Clyde

The anguish in this alienating aloneness is alarmingly enlightening
I am aware as the colors of my aura
fade from vibrant to mute
A spiraling sense of self grasps at false promises of hope or help
Each face that shows itself as an ally is simply mirage or ghost
Or wisps of nothingness I probably hallucinated to cope
I am an anchor in a rushing tide
Life floods by with no more than a glance over the shoulder
Some collide from behind urging me to move on, frustrated when I don’t align with their idea of time
I need to be unapologetically ‘not ok’
Imagine my electric shock when I find that’s not an option
The anguish in this alienating aloneness is alarmingly enlightening
