    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?

    The ladies can too Sling.

    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

    Your verses I've read
    I like McCulloch's too
    But raisin the dead
    Requires a Super 2

    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.

    Roses are red, that part is true
    But violets are purple not ****ing blue.
