What do books know?

A few books (15-4-2011)

What do books know?
They are a menu that will never be eaten,
Blood too dry to offer nourishment,
That is why my pen never stops,
Its words may speak to the soul today,
But tomorrow their best use may be toilet paper,
Humour or cynicism –
There can be little difference here,
So let’s share a beer and laugh,
At our misfortunes,
And keep the pen moving,
The blood flowing,
Our hearts emptying,
For to fill a thing we must first empty it –
Hope, yes take that if you wish
And hear my laughter,
Its interpretation changes day to day,
Up to down and left to right,
Let me be a poet, a scientist, a warrior and a womaniser,
Until the roles fall away,
And the pen bleeds out its cartridge upon the world,
And inky night claims us all,
Till then, write on

    I love “and the pen bleeds out its cartridge upon the world, and inky night claims us all…”
