Serpent Desires

The river of life

Holds gold and ice

Everyday look twice

Fortune in the pan flashes

*

Yesterday on fire

Not what we desired

In our dreams, Look twice

Through the smouldering ashes

Out of the grey

A new flame

Twists and thrashes

*

Like questions

The serpent of the river and fire

The future desire

Will ask us

**

What do you want?

What do you need?

How much will you pay?

How much will you bleed?

How can you survive

and better yet succeed?

What do you want and

What do you need?

**

Delivered to life

Sold a cold price

Every day look twice

For your sale-day door-crashers

*

Tomorrow a buyer

By our fight inspired

In our dreams, Look twice

Cool light

Drops down and splashes

Out of the night

A new light

Storms and crashes

*

Like questions

The serpents

the seller and buyers

The futures inspired

Just cash in

**

The snake in the road

Curves of life that guide us

The twisting, turning episode

that invites and delights us

We lead or follow

down the hard path

And with vision follow through

It seems clear

With no fear

Our tongue tells lies or the truth

It’s for you to decide

A taste you cannot refuse

We are all slithering

Where we are

It is what we do

**

What do you want?

What do you need?

How much will you pay?

How much will you bleed?

How can you survive

& ultimately succeed?

What do you want and

What do you need?

**

The giver of life

Old boldened skies

Everyday look twice

The sky shines or rain lashes

*

Today climbs higher

To find what we desire

For our dreams, Look twice

Through downpours and dry patches

Out of the grey

A bright day

No venomous clashes

*

Just answers

Of the serpent

the rain, sun and sky

Our immediate desire

Quickly flashes
