CRAVE


I don't crave chocolate cakes
had a lot in my life to fell glum.

Well I crave the big slums
and by the metro I save!
Doesn't even take much
to reach nearby there safe!

Crave the malarious marsh
of greed, the emotional rush,
I need
the stench of poverty
their smile, not free!
Denied, by material envy
by normality.
Your dull daily routine
cannot set them free!

Anyway,
I crave you partake.
Not his paid courtesy
but the waters of June
which make me so blue
though still cold enough
to go on towards their slough
and deny so well
my merciful gaze
to any sweet
human being
of our historical phase.
These crumbs, these historical seeds, 
deserve all the care of this wretched little world,
whose floor's full with blood
and splinters of unfulfilled needs.

Davide Ferri,
