“Imagination Styles the Face”


“Imagination Styles the Face”

Imagination styles the face of vanity that solves a thousand wrongs,
And no one guesses what’s behind the door.
Closer to the truth, the portal to escape closes just behind him; gore
And all that glitter exposed, tinsel moments in the early morning songs,
Playground glories among the boys and toys, reasons to declare
An eminence–petulant and sulking–ever hamartia, ever cool,
Who stalks the school yard–recess, lunch, and after school
And preys on younger lambs who cannot see nor dare
To think beyond the present master and the class
To one day leaving what was never meant to be
A permanent abode but stepping stones to what only seems
To be a day’s delay until the graduation fantasy, and one more hall pass.
“But, then again, I never meant to study, people…

I never meant to pass the test!”

  1. Amazing wordsmithing: “To one day leaving what was never meant to be
    A permanent abode but stepping stones to what only seems
    To be a day’s delay until the graduation fantasy…”

    Who’s the guy below the poem??

  2. His name was Abu Musab al-Zarqawi and he was a Jordanian militant who was viewed as the head of al-Qaida in Iraq until he was killed 7 June 2006.
