Writing. Inspired. Art.
I've always been inspired by animation. It's strange really, but that's why I write!
The biggest challenge is to convey that in words.

Remember to write what you love! Peace!

The Yellow Tape

April 8, 2018

Are you afraid of the tape
That might circumnavigate
Round your home,
As it roams
The alleyways of this state?

This yellow clown can turn his frown
All around and upside-down,
When it spots
What it caught
Is a drunk man from its town

And when you think
It's done its thing,
You'll be ringed to find its wing
Out your doorstep,
The innocents sing,
And others sink...
This is a sort of whimsical and imaginative take on the issue of the drug war in the Philippines, and how it has done more evil than it could ever do good...
