Let's drink a toast
Bid farewell to the ghosts
That've haunted us too long

Celebrate the remedy
Bask in the proximity
Of knowing right from wrong

Dance in the light
Of a moon shining bright
Singing our creator's song

Humanity's troubles
Divinity's puzzles
Prophets poets and psalms

Aligned and revealing
No longer concealing
Eden's predicted dawn

The lie detector works
There are no exceptions
Your own very words
Whether spoken or unbidden

Transparency reigns unhindered
Criminality rarely even contemplated
Deceit and treachery have surrendered
Truth's worth cherished and celebrated

Look me in the eye
And tell me it's not true
Our creator has replied
By awakening inside you

It's a childhood cartoon
Starring a boisterous buffoon
Showing off to the girls

Morphing into reality
Be it ever so gradually
Infecting all the world

An inevitable transition
An individual decision
To knowingly complete the circle

@jomoco ...On a lighter note and just for you my friend...Poetry in rap...:cool:

"Death Come A Calllin"

Can't feel cuz I'm blind
High on a dime
Still hear the beat
Tap tap feet
One eighty seven
Take me to heaven
Hell's too full
Cuz bad dudes rule...

Said he was mine
But I knew he was lyin
Neck fingered is ass
To the dirt now he's dyin
Cryin, sighin
Cranked up, flyin...

Turned and departed
Stopped where I started
What goes down here
Can't touch, get near
Death come a callin
Fallin, fallin...

Well if Boz Scaggs can rap?

Closest I get's that nobody speaks nobody get's choked tune.

Some of the white farm boy rap's pretty hilarious too.

Split personalities
Producing graven realities
Long fractured mentalities
Seeking reconciliation infallibly

Cloven beings
Metaphors concealing
Parables revealing
Recipients humbly kneeling

Symbols and science
Symbiotic reliance
Flawed futile defiance
Of our inheritance inside us

There are latent alarm clocks built into us
The joke's on us being sadly ignorant of it
This tortured journey so long and arduous
Suddenly ends as knowledge rings implicit

The simplicity of the distraction
The reason lover's sense hollowness
Intent upon an urgent interaction
Wasting numbers in naive coziness

The tree of life's eternally renewable
It's ability to regenerate is boundless
It's branches are universally graftable
It's roots seek till heaven's found us

The problem's profound
The situation's dire
Being grave bound
Flawed mortals expired

Kings and queens
Peasants and pawns
So brief their scenes
Till herded along

Good guys and bad guys
Saviors saints and sinners
Our creators left us blue skies
A moon to instruct beginners

Shocked and confused
Suddenly forced to choose
The whole planet enthusiastic

These predicted latter days
When all mortality's slaves
Would be redeemed by ancient magic

The inevitable sought outcome
Our creators paying our ransom
Mathematically deliberately emphatic

A mother's heartbreak
A father's failure
Humanity's long trek
Divinity's regalia

Coffins tombs and burial vaults
Princes pawns and court jesters
All succumbed to mold and rot
Flawed mortal virgins rest there

The handle of time turns
Gears mesh in synchronicity
As humanity finally learns
What fuels the engines of divinity

Thankfully far far away
Calming chaotic disarray

Perpetuating other planets
Planting their seedlings

Orphans abandoned
Fractured divine beings

That didn't understand it
Purposefully left in the dark

Germinated and pregnant
A well timed Noah's Ark

Did you deplorable troglodytes miss me
So much so yu gotta tongue n kiss me
That my poetry still resonates with infamy
Even amphibians n reptiles can't resist me
Earning orange infidel worshipper's envy

Now here's a thread that has a happy resurrection!

Here's one of my favorites:

"Lines Inscribed Upon a Cup Formed From a Skull"
by Lord Byron


Start not—nor deem my spirit fled:
In me behold the only skull
From which, unlike a living head,
Whatever flows is never dull.

I lived, I loved, I quaff'd, like thee:
I died: let earth my bones resign;
Fill up—thou canst not injure me;
The worm hath fouler lips than thine.

Better to hold the sparkling grape,
Than nurse the earth-worm's slimy brood;
And circle in the goblet's shape
The drink of Gods, than reptiles' food.

Where once my wit, perchance, hath shone,
In aid of others' let me shine;
And when, alas! our brains are gone,
What nobler substitute than wine?

Quaff while thou canst—another race,
When thou and thine like me are sped,
May rescue thee from earth's embrace,
And rhyme and revel with the dead.

Why not? since through life's little day
Our heads such sad effects produce;
Redeem'd from worms and wasting clay,
This chance is theirs, to be of use.
