Wearing Altruist Jeans.

Is it karma
that begets beggars
for faults deserved.

Is it expectation
that given is got
for good deeds done
in triple wicca fashion
or orange robes wound
round rotund non-desires.

Is it desire to be loved
insisting assistance
upon others less loved
or less able.

Aren't you the dear
attracting lion eyes
exposing your rump
is it your turn to jump.

Are you the centre
where universal love
drops in and out
because thats all there is.

Are you so bad
You compensate
and over contemplate
your dishonesty
and differences.

Does your god
make you guilty
or promise plenty
speaking sweetly
of sufferings mystery
and the lions misery
due slaughters destiny.

Perhaps you just hear
a voice
that isn't yours.

I often wonder if I have ever heard my own voice
I often wonder if I have ever heard a voice not mine

That voice not yours - that's the voice of a poet.

A series of excellent poems Glenn! I admire your creative spirit. Your poems bear a kind of simplicity and truth that haunts for a while and then seeps in somewhere deep and remains there.

I think we all hear many voices, it depends on which one we listen to. As usual I have enjoyed hearing yours, love the play on words in the title. Bye,

This episode exposes rhythms of how I hunt for how to be hunted by desiring a higher spirit to speak to me - thank you
