How my life would be different
If I only took a stand
And took the power I deserve.

The eternal recurrence
Of life it passes
The masses prove their asses
If only we would take the time to converge.

The masses are asses
As the time passes
When will we converge?

Another moment is wasted.
When will we converge?

Our asses take their stand
But when shall we plan
To take the power we deserve.

Our asses speak
But when will we see
That it is time that our lives converge.

@Theaetetus,
Thanks! This is a rough poem I threw together in about five minutes which are intended as song lyrics for a new song I have been working on. I generally start out with a rhythmic poem like this and twist it a bit so that the words, melody, and rhythm blend together. I always find song lyrics are often the most difficult things to write because of the extra constraints placed on the lyricist. Sometimes what makes absolutely no sense ends up sounding the best within the song. I am trying to balance the two.

@Theaetetus,
When our lives converge

A new boss will emerge

Those of high classes

Turn to the masses

Then we are the asses to purge

It's awesome, Theaetetus. I laughed at that, and that wasn't just a typed 'lol'.

@ossobuco,
Hi there !
Filipe de Albuquerque is my actual name, being Albuquerque in particular referred to my ascendency to the AFONSO DE ALBUQUEQUE which was a Portuguese noble man, Vice King in India in the fifteen century for the Portuguese crown... that said, I am from Portugal, so closer to Italy and its affairs in Europe...

I suppose the City of Albuquerque has its name due to some descendent who went to the USA and was important to the the place, but I am not sure...

@Fil Albuquerque,
Oh, but you have connected with an older woman new to albuquerque who happened to have spent years looking into italian history. We can probably have fun arguing. I am mostly bereft of southwest us history, but others here know a great deal. Much as I toss off my own knowledge, there is a rich history here.

@Fil Albuquerque,
No. John Wayne (The Duke) passed through the town on the way to Hollywood. This is not widely known.

???
Was that supposed to make me laugh, or to be funny ? Or are you one of those with an excessive phobia to noble ascendency ? Because I don´t give a dam to my origins I was merely trying to make something clear upon someone´s comment...

Why was he called the Duke of Albuquerque if Albuquerque is positively a Portuguese name that directly relates to Afonso de Albuquerque ? There must be some more to it...
