Vanilla Cranes

The light of day cuts pretty masks
Out of stuff way too colourful
And glues them on faces of men
Who then stomp chessboard with their feet

In brothels red lanterns do shine
Gates there kept open, welcoming
Children to find their way back home
To the tower of Babylon

Pockets and wallets resonate
With choirs and gospels of the change
Dreaming of freedom and revenge
Who lives by coin, by coin shall die

You ask me "Why do birds have wings,
When sons of mortal men can fly...?"
I guess we humans aim too high
Before sun laughs us in the face

So is there any happy place
Except for our enchanted realm
Where love with smallest ray of hope
Warms time through magnifying glass?

Here kisses taste like vanilla
Sprinkled all over coffee beans;
If we fold enough paper cranes
Do you think we can save the world?
once he asked me who I thought would win the fight over our world, our souls - good or evil? I said in my opinion it would depend on who'd try harder... it's not enough to say one would like to live in a better world, life's what we make it, the responsibility is ours
as to paper cranes - they are believed to make wishes come true - if you wish for something while folding a crane, it should happen :iconcocoloveplz:

Love this. You have such a way with symbolism. A great rhythm to the voice in this work. The final stanza is brilliant. :D

Nature would be worth saving... the nature of Mankind I'm not so sure.
