It began with a dreaming amateur
So lost and broken like furniture
In a quest to seek greener pasture
A sanctuary to grow and nurture
His life’s dreams and a bright future
Socially a ridiculed peculiar creature
Just another unknown miniature
But adorned with one feature
Of a great philosophical nature
Portraying a poets signature
Having a rhyming curvature
Beyond any known literature
Let me paint thee a picture
Only apt minds can depicture
An artistically versed architecture
From a spoken word lecture
The art of poetic agriculture
And stanza writing horticulture
From an ageless, timeless culture
Indeed a sophisticated mixture
Against the indoctrinated fixture
Of present day corrupted structure
With its poor moral infrastructure
Dwells on sales and expenditure
In allocation of status and stature
Instead of skilled nomenclature
Of young souls who dare to venture
In this crazy and infamous adventure
