[tab id=1]writing prompt… there are too many people,and too few human beings

Penicillin state expense by day
At night the currency of the prison economy
Spread sheets make shift 5-star hotel
Distasteful cacophony seeping through the pinhole
Pining down hope
On the sun rays that hardly
Caress my skin adequately
Midnight screams below fluorescent light
Metal screech on cement
A hue of rotten smell
You will still not understand
Will you
Men’s dry tears
Less subtle everyday
We wait for the hours to hide
The horrors of the night. [/tab]
[tab id=2] 33 years old university dropout, been writing for the last 10 years,writing mostly to vent off, sometimes to find myself, rarely got published. I’m working in a petro-chemical industry as a process controller, hate my job with a passion. At some stage in my life, I was performing in poetry sessions, at the Vaal tech, twice at Newtown, more in Zamdela, Sasolburg. Now I just watch and enjoy myself, immensely.[/tab]
