A Polished White Sink:

If I had to call this world a blessing;
I think I'd say 'I find it damn depressing.'
You might think I'm stupid from how I'm dressing,
But this is just the heart I feel like wearing.

I see street corners and absent youth;
Don't pretend you don't ever see the night.
Cause when it turns dark, the maggots start crawling;
Looks like God decided to shut out the light.

I can warm my hands on fire and watch the people go,
They don't know who I am, I just go with the flow.
I see streets that seem empty, clogged to the brink;
But that's the reality deep beneath the sink.

It looks clean on the outside, polished porcelain white,
But inside of the pipes are what you keep out of sight.
Yet they're already straining and distorted with strain;
Soon the flood water comes flowing, wash away with the rain.

-Unofficial release from Chen Yuan Wen, 8th April 2013
Okaaaay everybody,

Co-captain Hayes here with another release.

I tried to get my hands on one sooner, but the Captain was a little um, uncontactable. He was trying to get over his zebra (Tora-uma meaning 'tiger' 'horse', if you don't get the joke read History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi).

Anyway, I was juuuust about to file the missing person report, when BOOP he popped out of the air. So with his permission here is one of our unfinished works. (or in this case a scrapped work)

It's a little abstract piece that was never released, mostly because he didn't like the title. However, the title was so critical to the piece that despite the meaning behind it, he decided he couldn't let it go ahead. Anyway enjoy it for now :3

With his trauma getting better, the Captain should at least allow me access to more unfinished works and least until he comes back. He's studying hard at the moment for exams that are approaching so please keep supporting us~ PYON! (I still don't get paid enough for this ¬3¬)

-Co-Captain Bunny Hayes

I really liked that "You might think I'm stupid from how I'm dressing,
But this is just the heart I feel like wearing."

This is very good, reminds me of "Andorra" by Max Frisch.

I love how for most of it it's about this perspective from someone and it's kinda weird with the title, until you get to the last two stanzas and it suddenly clicks. It made me pause for a moment and really think about the similarity, very nice. About the poem in general, I love the tone and imagery of it, beautiful.

You need to get paid more, and the poem creates a picture in my head after about every couple of lines.
