Arts Lab Writing            The Arts Lab: Writing            Arts Lab Photography


by Nevada Kerr

A dirty trick, a shady deal
Ever-changing like the weather
Extravagant and so unreal
Drifting like a feather

This ego's but a vapor
This self is but a cloud
And in the final chapter
The hero thinks aloud

Deliverance, impossible
Freedom, cold and starved
If love's the only obstacle
Hope is a mirage

Desire more than ludicrous
And only to impress
Dresses like an optimist
In a sham of rotting flesh

And truth takes on the mirror
Naked and assured
An absolute dogmatist
Way beyond a cure
