Islands In the Sun Of Discontent (Poem)

Jigsawed upon red carpet kitchen floors
Below the upperdeck of pirate ships
Shipwrecked upon islands almost ahead of time
Forgotten by their circumstancial crew
But not their unrequited loved ones
The time for reforming mourning
Recycled, has come again
Humanity must be restored
The commonly corrupt validating themselves
My corruption and yours
Wounding others with our wasted words

Even commissioned clowns can’t run their own circus
I mourn your arrogance
Commissioning yourself president and forgive you
With no conscious or unconscious way to forget
Just like I once mourned my own
Surrounded by library mirrors
And whispers chosen by echoes found
Whose names, rearranged with compassion and pity
and things that should not have been forgotten
Overcame the blowing of the winds of my frustration
Letting fortune be free, allowing it it’s intuitive rights
For un-officed methods of achieving roots of last resort joy

Please mourn and forgive my complacency
Post-civilized liberation with truth so far off
A period of consequences, a nature hike up Mount Revelations
With sub tropical campfire terrorist contemplations
While sound sleep for the wise goes unnoticed

I am trying to offer jubilee
And safe council in Rivendell
But I know its not free
I am hurt to the bone that you look elsewhere for aid
There is no way to separate us until the end of the age
Your party tricks believed on both sides of town
But I turned around and felt your cigarette frown
So why do you try so hard not to cry?

Can we show evidence of life, nurturing justice?
You are still the place I love best, wherever that now is
I wish you well on your way to Damascus
East of Eden, where many martyrs fell
