Rantimus PRhyme: I HAD A DREAM

I dreamt that we were truly independent
That our captors in our freedom were truly interested
That when the union jack was lowered we no longer answered to Downing
But I’m frowning ‘cos they ensured that in debts we’re drowning
The G-8 is clowning with the way that they’re sounding
I feel like screaming in their ears “give us us free”
But no one will allow me so I feel like slipping into a coma
Asking you all to wake me when I’m free
But I won’t, I’m not flying till I finish
You can’t close my chapter, I got too many pages
I dreamt true civilians ruled our country
Not dictators hiding their toga to fool all and sundry
I dreamt that places of worship were not moved by money
They didn’t have to rub it in that truth has fallen
Idolized their tummy, I’m sick of their grumbling
Now everything is tumbling; but I see a new world



Keep your eyes closed as I walk by your side
Hand in hand we go through the darkest aisle
Optimism our opium for the hardest times
We hope we will survive, beneath the Starless skies
We’re crying out for justice, our voices barely heard
We’re just another face, on Mark Zucker’s Berg
We tell our sordid tales to Jack Dorsey’s Birds
Hoping to catch a glimpse of Santa Claus’ beard
They say that fair is foul, they say that foul is fair
Truth is just an artifact, hidden in Devil’s Lair
Even when they drag us, five fingers in the Hair
They can’t leave us in hell; we’re coming up for air
Let your eyes stay closed, but open up your mind
Look a bit more inward, hoping that you would find
The paths the great ones trod see if we can rewind
To the time we met the serpent, and pay him back in kind!



Wish I got to write you, when I had the chance to
Get across a word or two, just to tell you thank you
Wish I did all I could, to light your face with sparkles
As you smile; I wish I said goodbye
All by myself, tonight, I light this candle
Could you really be gone? I need a lie or half-truth
Turn back the clock, someone say the word
Tell me there was no storm, can someone make the clouds move?
Wish your Soul missed her flight, and the trip was cancelled
Open your eyes dear; just take a look around you
Tell us you are alive, so they won’t inter you
Mum is right beside you, crying out her eyes too
Daddy had a bad flu from the day he heard the sad news
He’s trying to be strong, because they said he has to
I hear him blame himself for not being there to guide you
It’s hard to be a man, when death and grief surrounds you
Wish I cared about you, in life more than I now do
Hung on your every word, like they were laws and statutes
Now I know what it’s like, to write a note without you
Commenting and texting, that it was impactful
 If your page were a hall, I’m sure it will be packed full
With friends, family and tears, this world is such a dark room
Why do the good ones go, for death to boost their value?
They say your name means life, so I’m really baffled
Can death swallow life? Did someone rig the battle?
Why is life so saddled with strife and senseless hassles?
Bring that glorious body, let this one be mangled
Death, damn you! I hope you know you’d die too?
God will rip the skies to, gather all the saints
No more would Kidneys fail, no more pain and anguish
Lord, haste the day, this is what I pray
I wish you’d bring her back, but she’s gone to a better place
We need to be reminded that we’re here for a while
The ‘hi’ s and the ‘bye’s ,we smile and we cry,
The ambulance, the hearse, humanity, the curse
How long would we mourn, friends and family gone?
Their memories live on, in our hearts, they’re reborn
They are watching from beyond, this threshold of pain
Smiling at our ignorance, for thinking they are lost
If our hopes are confined to the spheres of this life
And can’t figure why we’re born till  we die
Call us pathetic, and hang us on a Derrick
Of what use is long-life? See, I’m Eternal
There’s a quickening in my Spirit defying the infernal,
Powers, yeah, they only shine for a while
Drop this body in the Earth, a new one will arise
Shinning like the stars, transcending the skies
So, tell me why we fear to leave it all behind!

Rantimus PRhyme: I USED TO LOVE HER

Images Mock Me
I used to love my Country, I still think I do
Now when I see the flag, everything is blurry blue
It’s like a room of mirrors, images mocking you
You try to seek a way out, the walls are blocking you
Our men love to be daddies; they’re good at keeping Mum!
Leaders pretend to be Gandhis, bleeding and killing us
Clerics are fleecing us, we kneel believing God
We don’t want to be dead Lions, keep us as Living Dogs!
I miss the days Newspapers were simply Black and White
Now everything is colored with media lies and spice
Too many Grey Areas, it’s hard to Bat an Eye
The truth that once was showcased, lost to ‘Smash and Grab’
Whither the stain free banner? Gone with the former Anthem
A Flag with bloody motif, soiled in the hands of Madmen
We’re filled with many visions, nightmares coming in tandem
A sea of clueless faces bow to the ones that scam them
Perpetual Half-Mast

Rantimus PRhyme: Follow The Bleeder

Whither the Maiden of Justice?…her Rapist was the Bailiff
Take hold of my hand and lead me with a blindfold
Through the twisted bends; run me through a Light pole
Rip open my wounds, pierce me like a Psycho
I’m going up in bits, like you’re pounding me with Nitro
The Merchant Ships are here, I heard you plan to sell me
To far distant lands, you never cared for my well-being
The future looks so bleak, I behold it with trembling
It’s time for midnight snacks, now we’re turned to gremlins
Wither the Justice Maiden? She’s no longer a Maiden
You got someone to rape her; I even heard you paid him
He didn’t have the dignity to treat her like a Lady
She had her day in court, her Rapist was the Bailiff
Your forebears sold me, I’m scarred by the betrayal
Deep furrows on my back, my knees are worn with prayers
We watched as freedom died, and vowed to serve her slayers
 She’s buried in our dreams, now we’re up for sale on PayPal!
The Merchant Ships
