Sad faces

I wished for a good day
enjoying nature’s gift
excited like a schooboy
something different to see
something new to gaze

How my heart shrunk
when sad faces greeted me
those beast in broken cages
rusted and neglected

The king lost its mane
the queen sat behind those bars
ribcage showing
trapped in and out
body and soul

Thus gone the excitement I had
when sad faces showed me the truth
terrible beasts we are
no need for claws and fangs

(maybe it’s for human only)



There was a time
centuries ago
When our crowning achievement
The biggest
The spacious
The tallest
Of all that we worked with our hands
Were to glorified the One

And today
The best is to glorify
Green pieces of papers
That is never enough
