The Art of Tea and Poetry

The Art of Tea and Poetry


A lion dwells in your sentient savanna
Persistence and purpose his badges of strength
Urban forests breed banality and bromide
Seize him and purge Man of his shallow decent

Iron rods of conformity rust perception
Towers of compliance stunt natural height
Municipalled mediocrity overcasts uniqueness
Lampposting creativity in artificial light

Pave your avenues through the suburbs of selfdom
Asphalted animosity will tear at your flesh
Jealousy and envy may hijack your journey
Shattered reality could challenge your steps

As beads of exhaustion drip off your body
And welted wisdom breaches and bleeds
Intellectual fruition will form possibilities
Reviving the unconscious seeds of your dreams

Cauterize the wounds and silence your suffering
Dismantle the dissonance that knocks on your door
Melt the metals that encumbered your journey
And mold magnificence from their metamorphic ore
