    whenever i decide to hop over here
    it feels like i'm working in a prison cafeteria
    and i'm drawing smiley faces with the ketchup on all y'alls trays
    and nobody notices. you just shove your tator tots right in it and
    talk bad about each other with your mouths full,
    while pieces of stale potato fly across the room and land on
    the dirty ground around you.
    the dirt eats it up and says " Thanks! Keep arguing! "

    even the so called christians do this here.
    this is one reason why i don't go to church anymore!
    i dare someone to stand up and say
    " burn her! "

    at least build a bridge outta me....

    (i love all you selfish bastards, including myself)

    wanna see me do a heel click as i walk out?

    *heel click

    Neither I am a monkey nor a crocodile. I am simply a man and I am loving. In love I see you, my dear. No need of writing. It is the truth and secret of life. Let us live with it. Don't waste time.

      Coiling Cobras Start at the bottom of the empty holds of rusting tankers. Turn over fallen, cherry blossom petals. Check just above the tip of a coiling cobra's fang. Try the crunchy taste o ... more

    I took some break upon that rock of suicide / Just to forget this earthly world / I wished I were a pretty wave / Just to come and to hit that pretty rock /

    Epic poems have relevance in world poetry I think. Though epics itself are not written history with such accuracy it is helpful to know the way gone behind, the cultural synthesis it gave, . the different characters that got attention of the epic poets and their images and such things which is wonderfully imaginatively created. The readers gets an opportunity for a glimpse of epics and human civilizations benefited through the epics and evaluate it.
