The inspiration for this poem was an incident which triggered the memory of a quote I’d read a while ago-

“Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.”



Brains of brick

Dressed with grime

Attempting to veil

Superficialities, to no avail


Sweeping claims made

Simulating the semblance

Of empathy may be precious

Don’t be fooled, by masks so tenacious


Blood curling screams

Echoing back emptily

From hollow ears

And still, the pain sears


Why would I

Shower my surmise

On jaded minds

Dwelling far behind


Keep them in

Guard them diligently

Let it be equated to pretense

It’s the sole saving defense…



  1. That is mysteriously beautiful. I love it.

  2. Love the choice of words! Great opening line: “Brains of brick” — nicely constructed and written poem!
