The Bard From The Sea

Rated 5.00/5 based on 2 reviews

About Rori O'Keeffe

Spicing up your daily with charm quarks and pi-mesons.
Living my own way - sorry, I'm not bohemian.
Puzzling over patterns I see in the news.
Making love like the ether around us.
Giving up on fighting the urge.
Not paranoid anymore - just scared ****less.
Right. Left. Right. Left. (Practising, just in case.)
A respite from boredom would nice.
Slightly more off-kilter than most loonies.
Turkeys can't fly, or swim.
Find me muttering to myself at the mall, late in the afternoon on Christmas Eve.
Send me your love, my life is a void.
Striving for perfection, one bottle at a time.
Anyone out there need a roommate? I'm trying to unload mine.

Peace, in an otherwise violent Universe.

Review by: Flex X on July 21, 2016 :
Well written, good message, a call to action. I didn't fully get the connection between the title (The Bard from the Sea) and the content of the poem, I was expecting more of a sea story or wise sailor telling of journeys, but I suppose this is a voice calling to humanity from the infinite, a poem of warning.
