“ Labels ” ~ of design fables ~

 

Labels

Of design fables

Be latent oubliettes,

To cover flaws

Meant to forget,

Thin façades

Fixed to disguise,

The reality

Of devious wise,

Designed to cover

Their obvious lies…

 

Free-ride labels

You’re but lags,

Sad symbolic tags

That camouflage,

To validate

Your trendy state

Less than able,

Left to hide

In shadows

Of deceptive labels!

 

“ Kaleidoscope Life ” ~ of ominous purpose ~

One lives at times

A kaleidoscopic life,

In spite of the pace

That edges on strife,                                      

An inchoate being

Finds worth a taste,

So fancies his stay

He ignores the waste,

And aims not to stray…

 

Innately deceptive,

Plays a man’s mind

Of fragile compass,

Thus moves thru time

A subject bewildered,

Who tries to survive

A morrows’ circus,

Delivered as bate

Of ominous purpose,

Yet he’ll ruse the gods

If but to perpetuate,

His kaleidoscopic life!

“ Who You See ” ~ may not still be ~

 

The who you see

May not still be

The monolith

You surmised,

And begs perceive

The elapsed time

Ought not surprise,

That who you see

Be but an outer shell

Etched so by time,

Wouldst bare a man

Of plus score years

You thus now see,

Yet seems to hide

A real me inside,

The while who I am

Matters not a damn

Who I was then,

Should mirror now

The who you find to see!
