The Cupbearer!


The cupbearer!
The muse of life with the ways of mankind;
Love!
With your winter clothes on.
Life!
By the ways of the real things around you today;
And like the muse of your sweet love in this town.
Life!
To host an art exhibition;
With the real things of life.
Muse!
To expose your mind to the people around you;
And, by eating the real things of life that are acceptable.
Life!
You can learn the ways of mankind and be straight always;
Love!
Extending peace to your love ones;
But, draw nearer to me with your true love and, let us live in peace.
