|Do You Think I'd Make A Good Poet? by goodiz(m): 8:17am On Feb 03, 2009|
YEARS OF THE TERMITES.
They have laboured and toiled for our tomorrow,
They have been consigned to places
Criminals will promptly repent upon imagining;
Now, God bless their souls.
The seed has grown,
Watered, it seems, by their blood.
The leaves gets greener by day,
Enriched by their sweat.
And, slowly, our lips part;
The time keeper came and,
One after the other they slept,
New palms went for the reins,
We did not stir much—nothing will happen.
White, brown, cream, yellow, black;
The colours of our teeth;
Would still surface as it had.
The leaves would get greener, now.
The palms with the reins proved us wrong:
The leaves turned brown, yellow and black.
The river flowed upstream; we shouted.
The have ear problems; they couldn’t hear.
Our teeth had no cause to be exhibited.
Quietly, like angry termites,
They ate the wood on which rests our feet.
Our foot now rests like a leaf in the wind;
Night is suddenly around the corner.
I pray we see tomorrow, tomorrows…

Does it really matter what i think?
if i think you would not be a good poet, does that stop you from publishing.
