I think I was driving or walking, when I first noticed them. I had passed this road countlessly and not once did I bother to look, up at the trees. They resembled some black fruit that I had no knowledge of, or a swollen apex of a branch of a tree. The fruit bats of this large roundabout were so fascinating to me. They are like dark patches, swarming the empty sky, darkening desolate streets, and searching mango trees(and maybe some others) to feed on their fruits. Are they blind as the other bats, I wonder. Such abilities. Their togetherness baffles me. As though, they are one clan(or maybe they are). Now, I wonder what it would be like to be bitten by a bat, or, any creature at that. The pain, the rush of blood and adrenaline to the rescue. An adventure!
Famous one day, infamous the next.
Like air; ubiquitous
Of no value, an acquaintance at best.
How best to part from this is unfathomable.
Earth’s subconscious crave for a feel of absence.
A missing presence
Ergo, a recourse to reticence.
Alone but never lonely.
I like the sounds of nature.
Am I strange?
Favouring “lawful” defiance to the norm?
Should I be just another drone forced to be just like everyone else in every way,
I can not condition the world in totality.
It’s effect on me begs the question though…
Leave me alone.
I am trying to be better.
I will be better.
It’s as cold as night.
Gently and silently the wind caresses
Much to my delight.
I sense hunger and harder it presses.
Yet I refuse to relieve myself of this plight.
No comfort in sleep.
No dreams, nothing deep.
Now it’s eve, much past dawn.
I truly alone.
It’s still as cold as night.
Why bother, really?
Why speak, write, or protest?
The majority wouldn’t care.
Suffering in strife
And the seemingly inevitable death
Because of of this…
This one thing we don’t wish to share.
To march in unison under the sun.
To be united as one.
An idea for the foolish.
Surely, it is better to cower and abide by tyranny.
This battle cannot be won.
Stay alive and just have “fun”
And together, watch this country
Burn baby burn.
