Poetry: Le Hornet (@LeHornet ) ‘Word For Earth’


I see the hotel from the out­side,

looks very beau­ti­ful, so I order

the tick­et and choose my ves­sel,

the recep­tion area is white,

like a sort of heav­en,

but angles don’t where

gloves and a mask…

it was a rough intro from there…


I am shown to my room,

which had a beau­ti­ful view

of the sky and land­scape,

so if I am tired of social

inter­ac­tion or pre­tend con­ver­sa­tions,

I have a place to escape.


After that I go to the din­ing area,

I guess Earth is more like a

all you can eat,

than a 5 star plan­et,

she has been ren­ted by a people

who façade in self-indul­gence,

gor­ging so much wine,

they could fill a

“3rd world” well.


I walk through the lobby and I

see loiter­ers who lit­ter,

laugh­ing at the clean­ers job,

call­ing him rub­bish as they

stand on a corner talk­ing

noth­ing but garbage…


I go to my room,

the only decent place

and that’s because I can find sanc­tu­ary,

I sleep without the plumped up

goose feath­er pil­low,

I hate sleep­ing on death.


I wake up to go to the pool side,

I am from the one star side of town,

because I get black water with

plastic bags, cans and trol­leys

and I don’t know what lays beneath

the unseen bot­tom, maybe fish, I

guess I’ll avoid the tox­ic swim.


Room ser­vice ask me was I sat­is­fied

with their hotel, I said

“this has the poten­tial to be heav­en,

but right now it feels more like hell”


I was think­ing of buy­ing a place

on this plan­et, but I think I would rather

my ori­gin­al home, to bad my ves­sel

is a one way jour­ney and the second

cap­tain left as soon as I landed, so

I guess I have to wait in this ever­last­ing fire

until I reach heaven’s gate.


“Earth is not a hotel,

it is our home,

she is now becom­ing more force­ful,

you can see

it in her Richter tone”

Le Hor­net is a Lon­don based Poet. “Just your every­day thoughts is a com­pil­a­tion of poems from my young­er state of mind. The poems reflect what soci­ety was show­ing me and at that time soci­et­ies mir­ror seemed broken; so through my poetry I decided to mend it. Just like mir­rors most only looked out­ward, but I decided to look inward, at the true mir­ror of my soul as thats where I speak from.”
