Udiah (witness to Yah)

Rookie - 11 Points (1959 / USA)

Fool’s Gold


They mold a fake silver coin
From toxins they’re forced to join
It takes its toll on the skin
And tricks the blind mind to win

Refrain:
Nickel Cobalt and Chrome
That’s where the alchemists roam
To forge gold out of lead
A fool must smelt with your head

The metallic sheen that’s aglow
Bares a false toxic light bow
If an arc weld catches your gaze
Its brilliance leaves you in a daze

Scripture foretold long ago
Of the metal mind melding show
Behold mine eyes now know
Minds galvanized, synthesized,
Hypnotized and synchronized.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
