M. Daedalus - POETRY / POESIA
fraudulent light

Idiotic time, compulsively flowing
Egoistic space, painfully separating
Fraudulent light, ominously hiding
Morbid energy, enduringly alienating

Trembling heroes chant war songs
Insects pretend to be eagles
Rehearsing speeches on the art of banality
Protagonists  in a cheap mythology

Their weapons keep them enamoured
Dynamos of purple nightmares
Boasting the elegance of sharks
Arrogance from past triumphs and glories

Dogma is divinely dressed
Despair hopes for a grand future
Happiness attempts suicide and fails
Only compassion delivers death

A poetic cynicism reigns
Perjury refined into art
Purpose fades out, washed by indifference
A longing for anarchy, out of order.
