Forbid My Sunrise on a Foreign Sky


Forbid My Sunrise on a Foreign Sky

I stand on this other side of justice
A refugee; a piper; a homeless boy, a castaway
A Wagner fixing wishes on Arabia grounds
Disgruntled breeze usurp the arena
Depraved laws strutting with tenacity of prayers
Forbid my sunrise on a foreign sky
I court the nights with a feverish feat
Marching with the resolution of a chivalric knight
Denouncing my ordeals with a Protestant's
Quizzical zeal
I am a victim here
