Fly on a Buffalo's Head

You claim to have suffered in the past
And so I heard, I really do sympathize
You say you have worked so hard
And so it seems, I admire you for that

You have swallowed your pride for success
Chewed on your life’s values and principles
You have triumphed, now at the top
Head bloated with conceit, never looked back

Self-proclaimed dominion, you are the boss
Haven’t you notice? Everyone is in chaos
Whenever your presence is felt, so bad
You’ve lost your family and friends, so sad

Truth is, you’re clinging onto a thin thread
You’re just a fly on top of the buffalo’s head

About R.S. Mallari

Through poetry I am trying to break the barriers of ethnicity, cultures and even beliefs for we humans have the same emotions, the same desires and aspirations. We may differ in colors, in language, and food that we eat yet we are still living under the same sun, swimming and sailing on the same seas and sleeping under the same stars.

Through poetry we can inspire others, we can make someone smile and words can make others cry be it of joy or sadness.
