……been a while…. this is something I wrote a while ago (with a few recent tweaks and additions) around the same time I wrote this. I was getting really interested in Chinese culture and stuff….free verse. let me know what you think
There’s an Orient phrase
That describes a man and his ways;
His ability to become anyone
To change, to move, to act
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
The crouching Tiger I understand
He is hidden, while life goes on
Waiting to learn, or tear limbs from hands
But how do you hide a dragon?
Behind a chair, in a lamp?
Maybe under the stairs in the house
Perhaps a dungeon out of sight…..
But who has dungeons these days?
Places to lock away our faults and evil ways..
We should all be scared of our Tigers
And be extremely terrified of our Dragons
