Hourglass Pictures, Images and Photos


*The Nut-Lycans*
by Patricia Etienne

 

The hourglass is going faster than usual

Above, are people running like clouds in opposite directions

Bathe in oil luxe with sweeping powers

Chunk ice in champagne, sipping red cerise in martini.

[but their hearts are muddy

 

Others, swell up due to fasting hourglass

Below, dawn of darkness takes eternal stand

The illiteracy threads from letter A to Z

with banners of hope awaiting to be initiated.

[Their vulnerability lead to settlement of wrong choices.

 

Even with the hourglass is going faster than normal

Nuts-lycans are going unlimited on budgets

with no understanding that downstairs are trumpeting for help

And if they are making their voices heard then chains must  be placing on wrists

[Like cloth forced down throats for silence.

 

The hourglass is going faster and faster

Church bell tolls as advocate at their mercy

But are the Nuts-lycans take conscience of the ruby-ring as promised?

Instead they wag their dragon tails and parade like the 1957's dance.

[Mainstream media has duck-tape on.

 

Under thick fire tear gas- still, the hourglass is going.

Like a running water faucet, not a coincidence to cry.

Looking back at those banners of hope- choice was wrongly written

Illiteracy clouded the nation from taking the right stand.

[And the hourglass continues to go down faster.
