reality/fantasy

i know the reality of the world

but for my sanity the fantasy shall remain

grieved by the hunger enshrined

and the dead and rotten raised for the divine

fastidious gods fed by drunken knaves

solicitous and blind to the slaves

corrupt lords & dead ladies

crimson rivers and smothered babies

i know the reality of the world

but for my sanity the fantasy shall remain

the plagued subterfuge in ideologies

the scrofula metastasising minorities

“victims” killing and victims betrayed

on the hill top men that bled blue slayed

all while the leader feigned and prayed

a surreptitious knife in the back

trapped in the cul-de-sac

ostracised; if the views don’t meet

black balled; if you don’t baa like sheep

i know the reality of the world

but for my sanity the fantasy shall remain

the train could have been boarded

a run to the other world, if needed

the sailor would not have drowned

still at the helm till there came no sound

serendipity favours those that take the leap

not sound and relaxed when they sleep

evangelic to the values abound

a clown to the crowd but without a sound

last leaf on the tree

a dying woman’s plea

See?

I know the reality of the world

But for my sanity the fantasy shall remain
