04.30.22 Renaissance King. (Poetry)

Just a poem about old vs new me.

Renaissance King, by Brian B.

*

I am the renaissance king

I can do almost anything

tell a lie, fluff up the truth

i’m wasting away my sad unfortunate youth

*

Construction & Destruction

It’s all the same thing

All in a day’s work

In a day’s work upended

*

I’m a lost boy from another dimension

Too soft, too frail to mention

Fallen from the stars,

like glittery heavy metal guitars

*

Construction & Destruction

It’s all the same thing

I can do it with my eyes closed

do it with my eyes closed shut

*

I am the renaissance king

I can do almost anything

I’ve dabbled in countless follies & lies

I’m far too numb to surprise

*

Construction & Destruction

A parable for just about anything

Life’s too short to wonder

too short to wonder away

*

I am the endless book

Why don’t you take a look

I’m a long story without a name

always looking for someone or something to blame.

*

Construction & Destruction

Paint me silver & call me a God

nobody’s knows the difference

knows the difference anyway

*

i’m ready to fly fly fly

up the blackened sulfurous sky

I want to live my life let my heart sing

I’m my biggest fan & enemy, the renaissance king.
