Sweet and Sour hectic sign
Love me, trust me, the stars align

Blind when it comes to blood line

Slam Hurts!!!!!....

.                  Slammed by

            A MOTHERS LOVE
Mother always called me a lousy kid, with a shove
I was the only kid she wanted to get rid of
On my head she always smacked me hard.
She would always slam me calling  me a retard
My mother gave me the best slamming love.

((( my mother the best slammer there ever was)))
           WE ARE THE WORLD
Slam back at any country, at any given event
I feel bad for any so called President.
"WE THE PEOPLE" the Republic and the Democrat.
Slamming each other talking crap. 
In a world full of slam and argument.

((( The world toughest fight is slam not war )))
              TEACHERS PET
Our teachers kept on and on how we where wrong with a fuzz.
She just stood there and slammed each and everyone of us.
Making us write an essay on broken rules.
Kept us all after school calling us stupid fools
Who knew teachers where allowed to slam and cuss?

((( Teachers words of slam can ruin any future )))
             ROAD BLOCK
Have you ever heard of a poet blocker.
All they are is a slam stocker
They over abuse their blocking right.
Trying to make other poets fight.
Always trying to slam a point across, like a mocker.

((( Hating against any form of poetry is a slam it self )))
Can you guess that slam is just a risky business
Picking out the best slam words from the rest.
Testing out a form we don't know how to let it  flow.
Darn the soup for putting slam on the box below.
Even the best have join my slamming contest.

((( Thank you Soup for SLAMMING us with your A-Z list-form)))

Active Shooter

I see a man with a big long gun in his hands.
It looks as if he’s heading straight for the grandstands.
Damn! I heard multiple gunshots ring out.
People are beginning to run, starting to shout.
This is a hellish way to end The Battle Of The Bands.

Airwave Pandemonium

With my recorder I pursued my quest
This assignment seemed like a courage test
     That’s why my boss sent me
     Knowing that fearless I’d be
Covering this race brought such happiness

Hundreds of hot air balloons in the sky
Conducted the interview one mile high
     But now as I reflect     
     What I didn’t expect
Was the loud blast that made the balloon fly

I thought it would be quiet as we flew
Over Doak Stadium up in the blue
     The radio report
     Ended up running short
When the pilot spoke, the hot air did spew

Every thirty seconds or so -- a blast
Interview literally filled with gas
     The edited version
     From this fun excursion
Left our radio listeners aghast

But viewing Chief Osceola’s emblem
From high above the football stadium
     A sight I’ll not forget
     I have just one regret
Creating airwave pandemonium

* As a radio reporter I was assigned to cover the Tallahassee Annual Hot Air Balloon 
Race.  We flew over Florida State University’s football stadium and it was a great 
view from the air.  But I had to edit out each blast of air when producing the report 
for Florida Public Radio.  Talk about a choppy radio report.  I should have 
interviewed the pilot BEFORE we took off.  Duh!  Ignorance was my plea to the 
news director -- I was later sentenced to ground duty.

A Reader's Angst

Dark poetry, slams and vague imagery
Is there something you're trying to tell me?

     Poems with messages appeal
     Can you write to make me feel?

Share your deep thoughts and allow me to see
Disconnected images confuse
And when the English language is abused

     I read no more, turn away
     Seek verse with something to say

Writes with clear meanings that aren't obtuse
There's so much talent on Poetry Soup
And never have I found a finer group

     But no comments I'll impart
     If you're not creating art

Make me think, feel, or I'll fly from your coop

Written for the "Reader's Thoughts" contest

my wife has a gay boyfriend
thats over all the time
sometimes he comes over 
dressed in drag
and looks so so fine

i never wonder what they do
when they're all alone
but i always wonder if she's
suspisious with him around me
with his make up on

and sin has touched me
more than once with my imagination
men in drag should be a crime
not a fasination

A positive line

Respect and regard, people feel honour as appreciation.
Pleasureness encouraged them to raise explanation.
when you ignore a person means you cut  a support line,
you narrowed a cycle for living, did you draw a positive line?
you realized others you are a person of reserve nature.

my heart I gave once

once I gave my heart 
mesmerized by the start 
his eyes so sapphire blue 

I was not ready for this
my thoughts went blank 
literally speechless

had I known the tears I would be left with
I do not believe I would have let love in
this Man , he knew he captivated women 

Always me going for what I can not have 
then in return it is given , leaving me confused
the one I was seeking for sure would never commit 

Commit he did , even in front of a Rabbi 
saying only once, 1 time will I.
with all conviction I believed his lie 

I remember the Fall day he left without words spoken 
the leaves were dancing through the wind 
as if they were trying to tell me something 

the rain cried tears for me that night 
I took his sword collection down from the wall
thinking in true love I will never find again

to die a graceful poetic death with his sword
I awoke with a hangover the next day 
my heart broken  my heart ignored

Eight Years

It’s been eight years, and it still feels the same
As it was then, I seem to have no aim

Searching for my own claim to fame.

Times Running Out

The days seem so much closer together now , It is hard to keep up. Months click by me like weeks . Is this my time running out.
 I seem to lose things more often then I remember annd sometimes I need help . Am I going to forget it all before my time runs out.
So many more soreness it seems and I am sleeping alot . Will I sleep my days away? 
My dreams are confusing to me , I sometimes am not sure what is dream and what is real . It wont matter cause my time has run out.
It's a wonderful thing this life we have , But it is much better when your time runs out. That' what this life's about. Flow with time and dont worry about time running out .

Slam Poetry Is For Orangutangs!

The Orangutang:

There once was a traditionalist,
Who in his ignorance had missed
The beauty of youth,
The ever-changing truth!
He's a typical fundamentalist!

The Traditionalist:

"I can't stand these kids and their slang!
They are just looking for a bang!
Their rhymes are funky,
But so are monkeys!"
  -  Did he just call me an orangutang?

"These darn kids and this gosh darn slam,
It may flow, but it's still a scam!
If it ain't metered,
Then it's petered!
Why waste your ink scribbling flimflam?"

Next Thing to Believe

Why do we believe the hype they spread?
Next year they say we all might be dead
This spring all will shut down
Does this bring you a frown?
Rise of gasoline with rise of bread

We seem to believe whatever they say
Why are their words now gospel today
We are losing freedoms
More or less, like kingdoms
We left one of these, for freedom to pray

Let’s see if a rumor I start unfurls
Our new cars will be run by squirrels
Fueled by nuts and acorns
But never peppercorns
Because if you do, the car just twirls

Ball caps were styled in a way
To shade your eyes from the sun thru the day
        The design was unique
         In the front was a beak
Which sure did the trick I must say!

How many years have gone by
To guess - I won’t even try
        But now I am vexed
        Or you could say perplexed
Since cap wearing has all gone awry!

My query needs to be said
The answer I already dread
        But I’ll give it a whack
        Why wear the beak to the back
If you've no eyes in the back of your head?

I know what I’m doing is right
Not like I’ll be gone every night
The cupboards are bare
No one seems to care
Each time I find work it’s a fight

I wish I could change my life course
Not balking nor having remorse
All methods I try
It still makes me cry
When I ponder my enemy source 

I sort out my problems in vain
Revealed on my face my disdain
It’s not worth the stress
I have to confess
Uncertainty drives me insane

Sky-Scraped Ruins

The evening fresh, 
stars allure, 
birthed- ground-breaking. 

To look back, seems feeble
forward, Vigorous.

It is almost too late, 
I have hollowed a place
for each hope I carried, 
trickery twisted imagination. 

The sky littered, 
calling...all visions to death, 
each cup of soil, 
befriending faith with roses
as I walk away, 

There are no more stones-
upon stones, 
upon stones, 
only hours perhaps,

Screaming Demons

I try to collect my thoughts,
The ones that consume my mind,
Knowing I did this to myself,
An eye for an eye and the whole world goes blind...

Waiting for the signs of changes,
That never seem to come,
Day by day slowly passes,
And still I am the only one...

Temptation of vindication
Is what has trapped me here...
Inpatiently I am waiting,
As my  own existence begins to disappear

These Screaming Demons,
Have rapidly began  taking over me,
Revenge has not only taken my sight,
but now my  voice so that I cannot speak

Every move I make feels,
Like I am a puppet on a string...
Evil now surrounds my head,
So close to Hell I can hear the burning souls sing

Fox Trot Fish

A fish who was once made to serve
served those few willing to nerve.
This great joyous desire
became long term attire
then backfired with a swerve.

The Virgin cast aside Pisces
after he affected her nicely.
But he, all but prepared
still desired, loved, cared
and became his own helpless crisis.

This wound Pisces could hardly endure
for Virgo rose above Pisces pure.
She found new friends in the sky
disconnecting the will to comply
keeping Pisces confused and unsure.

Now Pisces alone must mend that spite
ruining his want, becoming right.
Merry Christmas, my friend
and reckon to descend
to help cleanse this torment I fright.

The instructions he gave were no good
The workers all misunderstood
        They hadn’t a clue
        Of just what to do
So noone could do what they should.

He was asked for clarification
And told of the workers frustration
        Then things even got worse
        Much more perverse
His solution was an aberration!

The explanation he sent
Only caused more torment
        The confusion was spread

“I know you believe you understand what you think
I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you
