    21st CENTURY


    21st Century sending me fiery imagery.
    I foresee the symphony of our misery.
    A history of cruelty, hypocrisy, and secrecy,
    From the ruling fraternity,
    Has decreed us to the casualties that we all see.
    This trilogy,
    A blasphemy to the true trinity,
    Brings no flattery to humanity.
    From infacy to maturity,
    Our global sea of ebony and ivory,
    Brought about by heavenly imagery
    For the promotion of individuality, diversity and unity,
    Instead has breed fallacy, tyranny, and slavery.
    The tapestry of our biology,
    Rich with brilliancy, variety, and majesty,
    Must have a greater destiny,
    Yet my poetry keeps me on bended knee
    In great company, for honestly
    I hate our inhumanity.
    In the drapery of diplomacy, policy, and equality
    Hides indecency, rivalry, and disparity.
    This legacy of our ancestry culminates in
    Two…zero…zero…three
    With a battery of weaponry,
    Political quackery,
    And Papal debauchery,
    Yet what many see is
    True chivalry,
    Loyalty to hierachy,
    And dependency to papacy.
    My curiosity leads me
    To fantasy of a utopian family,
    Yet reality of my negrito authenticity,
    Brought to me daily, with subtlety,
    From the eyes, mouths, and hands of
    Many
    Is true consistency with the
    Activity of witchery inbedded deep within our
    Anatomy.
    Watery at most,
    It moves with little fluidity of decency, charity, or purity.
    A tendency to thievery, trickery, and treachery,
    With the audacity it holds animosity to its own true capacity.
    Infinitely blessed; rich in complexity…
    So blind to its ability to create incredible melodies;
    Its levity to bring much needed comedy;
    Its sentimentality to bring harmony.


    I now see our greatest enemy is we!

    WELCOME

    CHIMASTER3- I would like to first of all welcome you to my home away from home. Here you will find like minds, friendship and of course a soapbox. I really enjoyed 21st CENTURY. You touched upon many of the symptoms of a sick society. I sense that it was quite a bit of fun writing this piece. I look forward to checking out more of your offerings. Peace, and may God bless you.

    This is my favorite part of this bangin' piece!
    Very lush in the concepts of what is wrong
    and potentially right in our, as 1poetsought says,
    "sick society." I couldn't agree more.
    do the thang poet!
