Bare and Burdened

Bare and Burdened

Holding riches of contentment
Flying light traversing barbed miles endless,
Haggard mien barefoot, unabated dream
Enthralling emmer sunshine beckoning.

Stories they heard, glorious land lush
Rosy days where nights resplendent
River munificent flowing elixir
Blissful promised land, hope burgeoning.

Frayed bindle of burden, penury a dent
On shoulders frail, life is heavy
Thatched roof leaking ‘n broke present
Left childhood alleys, hunger extreme

Lofty skyline opulence fetid, lament
Lowly stifled by the din, life is grim.
