Udiah (witness to Yah)

(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 Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
