The Home You Were

Poem By Ben Banda

Oh love!
what our dearest
home
you were
times before
rocky mountains
you turned!
which brought
with them
sweat and fatigue,
into our feelings,
into our hearts,
that arrived mightily,
on us faster to ride
as mortal chariots.

Honey Moon

Hand in hand, into the sea, they plunge,
Each other, for they addressed
Ages ago, in their hearts for their fleshes
With the stranger to flee to feel.

To Swallow The World

Who can the world turn hollow
If thirsty, tombs all in fiasco sting?
Do mortals dropping mean a thing?
If lull to the world on knees, follow,

Thirst For Mandela

Oh Dear Mandela!
If your soul was an immortal breeze,
Tomorrow wobbling in flames
Half in darkness gobbled,

Gold Diggers

They shed blood to kindle gods,
Their pornographic gods to shine.
But if they withdraw their swords,
Behold, gold’s image twinkles.

Baby Girl

Deep within her, a sting is hidden,
A hidden sting never spoken of,
Forever lay in darkness, watching;
By the paths lay before others.

Chair By Sunset

Chill cringes, the throned one fidgets,
Darkness rages and raiders plod by.
Around his stars, his stare is flung__
Once, heros now zeros snuffed.
