The Numbness Epoch


There is no more Mona Lisa around
Nor a miraculous Serenade in the air
Even the inexhaustible Old Guitarist
That once could enchant the world
Does not move his magic fingers
***
It seems we are journeying through
Another endless numbness epoch
Where time, space and just a few    
Are the only conscious pilgrims
***
The rest are some darned ghosts,
Masked with copies of the Scream,
Hoping in vain that their silent notes
Are reaching the ears of divine universe
***
A group of happy baffled slaves
Who deem they are really experiencing
The essence of life, love and happiness
While are breathing their own extinction
***
In this fussy period, just a few are awake
A few sober pilgrims, who are struggling
To find an everlasting escape hatch, in order
To rescue the residents of global Platonic Cave
