…by Poetic Tee “Here, take a sip”

I'm a day different from the rest
Having no light, devoid of darkness
Where creatures scream dawn to dusk
Walk, talk and stalk themselves astray
Counting seconds not firsts or thirds.
Image result for Different 
I'm a star different from the rest
Absorbing all lights, nil reflection
Avoiding glitterati, all eyes, d'eye
Never twinkling nor shimmering
Consumed pure, dark brilliance.

I'm a rain different from the rest
Rising from earth to the heavens
Neither nourishing nor reviving
Image result for DifferentDehydrating, deflooding minds
Dry moisture, flowering deserts.

I'm a body different from the rest
Invisibly amoebic, diffusingly osmotic
Buried afloat, changing realms, wind
Traveller in human imaginations, glint
Here, there, everywhere, yet nowhere.

I'm a plant different from the rest
Image result for DifferentBurrowing down, spreading leaves
Not green, yet shaken by the winds
Watching water percolate nostrils
Plum fruits, unbelievable to taste.

I'm a thought different from the rest
Perpetually disappearing till the ring
Pulsating in beats, rhymes, rhythms
Sought after away from my source
Return to me, start all over again.

White skin in black coats
White snow pelting walking souls
White chills, don't hug me.

…by Poetic Tee “Here, take a sip”

A blood bath art
Countless in a throw
Emboldening territorial stains
Unscript it!

The snake has been killed
Yet its head vestiges
For full effect
Severe it!

Same stars in a day sky
Tactical strategy, enthused
Conscientiously twinkless
Uproot all!

Darken clouds, charged
Still intact, still at large
How can the storm stop?
Rainbow it!
Ants in a queen’s colony
Workers, soldiers, more
Yet the system stagnates?
De-oriented psyche!

The gods still hold council
Playing chess with no rules
Splitting the slat.
Ungod them!

Nile river flows
Feeding perpetual channels
Sad crops yield in abundance.
Block Lake Victoria!
Cowries’ sacks looted
Buying logs, feeding a fire
Death handouts by its merchants.
Surgically remove!

Remember the lion’s gnash
Its canines shackled by saliva
O, so swift its snap.
Beware. Be wary. Be warned!

…by Poetic Tee “Here, take a sip”
Like ants, we'll toil relentlessly 25 hours a day
Sweat will be our shirt, restlessness our pillow
Termites will scrape the sky, with structures tall
Employing means, to surpass the fame Khalifa
As fire-flies pool pouches, to light mother earth
Stars will be commanded to guide our strive

Moles tunneling below, wings slapping the air
Bug rides, floating effortlessly, no pollute fuel
Levitation takeoff to heavenly docks, as at due

Spiders tailoring our garments, light yet strong
Rainbow permeating glows, needing no wash
Nets thrown in an ocean, for bytes and bites
Bees kissing flowers in a dance, o so deadly
Honey in hexagonal packs, healing of stones
Healthy souls, cured of doubts in a mere blow
Warps are rested soldiers, as minds take root
Teleporting deserts to swamps to attic Antarctica
One globe, borderless as checks become comic.
