JOBY JOHN Poems
The Tower of Babel
I said. He never He said and I never too. Sounds are heard but None sound meaning
The Sin Of Pride
“What is pride? ” “What makes you not. What makes you far.” Know yourself, your pride vanishes.
To my love
How happy I am to be in the dawn My days are being doubled Because her presence bring joy to everyone
One Click To Death
The linked binary illusions Waits, the spider in between. One motion leads to life or death. Few are not confused
Retaliation Never Ends
An eye for an eye, A tooth for a tooth And I for whom? A question, never answered.
God’s Promise To Me
“Build an altar.” I asked, “ With what….? ” “Build an altar.” I asked, “Where … I…? ”
I am alone
Fishes live Where water exists But one feels Its absence
It'sTime to the Grave
Who created man? God! you think? Word is written so, 'You are'
1 Running fire can't be done Ran I behind Rofxes 'Erised Rofxes, Erised Rofxes',
A man without ego A man with concern Do good for better There are few
The Deceptiveness Of Appearances
The little being, the bee Makes honey the best sweet. The great kings are But prey to worms in their eternal palace.
I am hungry Have your food I have had I am hungry
Beware beware haulier, You transporting company Thy wagon of creator, Reveals cosmogony.

The Tower of Babel
I said. He never
He said and I never too.
Sounds are heard but
None sound meaning
Lead many cultures,
Made thou chaos
And made thou Babel.
