Big Foot and I

Bigfoot often puts his foot in his mouth
and he's got a big mouth too...

Harness Racing

Harness Racing ( Poem )

Horses pull a two wheeled cart
If it breaks you will depart

Place a bet before it starts
Good wager wins if played smart

Riders ready at the gate
Fans no longer have to wait

Athlete sport with high speed
Is a skill you surely need

At times a horse can fall down
Sad to see that come around

Last turn has crowd in a roar
We wait to hear close end score

If your looking to explore
My playlist has so much more

The Humans and I

Ones who wage,
Ones who rage,
Ones who take,
Ones who pay,
Ones who craze,
Ones who rave,
Ones who crave…

Ones who fear,
Ones who breathe,
Ones who give,
Ones who need,
Ones who will,
Ones who weave…

Ones who plead,
Ones who beg,
Ones who beseech,
Ones who entreat,
Ones who appeal,
Ones who volunteer,
Ones who disappear…

The ones who follow,
The ones that don’t know about tomorrow,
The ones who don’t deserve the morrow…

The ones who sleep,
The ones who cry,
The ones who live,
The ones who die…

The ones who proclaim,
Those who say they create,
The ones who ache,
The ones who don’t wait,
The ones who hesitate,
The ones who don’t concentrate,
The ones who fornicate,
The ones who procrastinate…

Those who fall in temptation,
Those who get in frustration,
Those who sometimes feel desperation,
Those who keep going without caution,
Those in motion,
Those in tension,
Those losing notion,
Those being poisoned,
Those getting in distortion,
Those following the broken diction,
Those dying like the billions,
Those without unction,
Those washed in the oceans…

I might seem cold,
But it is you who is bold.
I might not express,
But it is you who doesn’t let me progress.
I might not seem like I seek,
But it is you who doesn’t know me…
I might seem like I need,
But it is you who might always be begging on your knees.
I might seem dull,
But it is the one that is fool.
I might not be alight,
But it is you who isn’t truly alive…

I will remain neutral,
I will remain silver,
I will remain gray,
I feel darkness,
I feel light,
I will remain hallowed…,
After all, it is you who deserves no life…

I am a metal hawk,
I am a mountain goat,
I am a silver bird,
I am a gray wolf,
I am a white tiger,
I am a mystic rose…,
I am I…

I’m alive,
And I survive,
You are here,
However, it is you who deserves no life…

Being human does not imply that you have humanity…

The Righteousness Of Love

Love is a wonder shared by one another it's the only reason I'm not six feet under Love in which I believe in a will to sustain I give back to life, now in dormant states of pain The power of Love may not alone be enough locked inside my dreams escape only from above higher than any human being has ever gone before I must have evolved rise above hate, great once more My Father taught me wisdom I am imprisoned no longer now an beast not of burden I am no lion, I am stronger on my shoulder sits twin dragons long awaiting the day evil forces come forth to take what Love is left, away A Hero of Love light are what the world needs angels, not demons exist where ever you believe follow your heart's direction and you shall achieve objects of affection rid of materialistic greed My bright energy has awakened to a fire never consuming the source as the flames just grow higher that is the desire of a product we call Love Fear, the counterpart what I was once made of I am slowly learning how to win when my peace is harder to sharpen so I have given my pen leave the sword has its uses I must say I believe to vanquish the evil in the minds too diseased to serve any purpose except their own selfish ones tomorrow a new day in the clarity of the sun where we two are now one and one done now does bring about a great change lit by the righteousness of Love.

Home Sweat Home

A triangle top
A square foundation
A picketed white fence guarded 
by
two spotted dalmatians sitting on the
shaggiest rug that reads
"Home Sweat Home"

ANIMAL INSTINCT

Animals packed in packages
with no clear conscience we buy
hotdogs and burgers 
perpetrating the lie
DEAD animals in the oven
alongside granny's pie
reaching for the dark meat
shoulder, leg and thigh
no justice for the animals
no justice for their cries
killings in slaughterhouses
with no proper goodbyes
humans behaving like animals
and nobody’s asking why
humans  are  eating  animals
that’s the reason why

Someone Elses Life

I feel like I'm living someone elses life, a life in strife. I've been strong, but when will I belong. I feel so alone, but I'm doing ok on my own. I can't describe the pain, but I keep in mind every storm runs outa rain. I use to think our love was unbeatable, but really its unforgettable. Everyday I walk down memory lane, trying to ignore the pain. He crosses my mind everyday, when will all this go away. There's gotta be something more, my heart is becoming sore. My momma doesn't have to worry, because I'm not sorry. I know he made the mistake, and he's the reason I have this heartache. What we had, was bad. I shouldn't have let it go that far, your just another scar.

My Favorite Animal From Noah's Ark


In Noah’s ark were two animals of every kind.
I can think of my favorite, that comes to mind.

I think of the lions, giraffes, gorillas and baboons.
And there were the cheetahs, 
gazelles and raccoons.

Birds, reptiles, amphibians…  So many to choose from!
I’m surprised that Noah and his family
 could feed them!

But if you were to ask, what may favorite animals would be…
There would a strong passion
 come from inside of me!

I don’t mean to “pick favorites” by the animal I’ve chosen!
My favorite is the dog! This is the one I have spoken!

He’s been called man’s best friend!  And for good reason!
They’ve proved faithful 
and true throughout each season!

There are ones who are pets, and become a family friend!
There are those who help rescue people, trapped within!

Dogs come in such a variety, there’s much to choose from!
It’s no wonder how many people really love them!

I can’t think of no other animal that has blessed so many!
If there is one out there…  
Can you think of any?

The dog.  This is my choice!  I’m willing to bet on it!
There’s one waiting to be your friend!  You can depend on it!

MERCILESS SLAUGTHERING

Rhinoceros and elephants
are hunted for their horns...
there are very few extant:
profit has a malicious intent!

Predators are to blame for the merciless
slaughtering...they attack these harmless,
huge animals grazing on the vast plains
of Africa: hear their cry in the wilderness! 

For every animal they kill...
there should be a stiff penalty,
a punitive incarceration until
they realize their cruelty!

It's unlikely that this trade stops,
there'll be more mad hunters
who will terrify these creatures...
while they roam on dry pastures!

How do I

I ponder.
I wonder.

How do I live for money, 
while millions are dying for it?

How do I appreciate life, 
while it's devoured every night for dinner?

How do I keep driving, 
while empty bellies are filled with pollution at every robot?

How do I make way for the mainstream, 
while society is already drowning in it?

How do I feel comfortable in my own skin, 
when so many have been persecuted for the colour of theirs?

How do I distract myself in churches and conference rooms, 
while the earth is crumbling under these structures?

How do I live, 
when "that's life"?

I ponder.
I wonder.

to steal a farmyard animal

The beige-leaf spluttered phrase… 
writ upon geld throat… 
twelve forth rite sty, fallacious turn-bred stoat… 
churl of punt incontinence, 
cosmopolitan oat bloat broth, sleeved mist cyst capacities… 
purplish ingrate cloths,

Flout the spout trout terraced house… 
tabloid thyroid thymes, 
spouse-bound widowed legalists… 
robust… rotund,

Negate….

Birds of a Feather

Opposites may hold attraction
But lack lasting satisfaction.
Frequently push comes to shove.
In comes hate and out goes love.

Animals in fights and fleeings
Still are mostly social beings.
In a pinch, at end of tether,
Birds of a feather flock together.

Multitudes of furry creatures
Seem alike in lots of features.
Yet that’s not their point of view,
And they vie to prove this true.

Mockingbirds may sing like parrots.
Horses, rabbits crunch on carrots.
Many species act as one
To lark and run in the sun.
But in times of stormy weather,
Birds of a feather flock together.

Whether cat or dog or ferret,
Each as pet will have its merit.
Yet if all alone, where’er it,
Not a one can grin and bear it.

Humans also seek each other—
Father, mother, sister, brother—
Hither, thither, upper, nether,
Birds of a feather flock together.

Animal House

The worst fraternity on campus is Delta Tau Chi Every night, all of the frat members get high. They can drink more than their weight in booze. In the classrooms with their grades is where they lose. The brothers have trouble imbibing their knowledge. The dean wants those punks kicked out of the college. For everyone else, they display blatant effrontery. The truth is, there are houses like that on every campus in the country. Based on the 1978 film “Animal House”

Three Puddles of Goo

Goo here, goo there
The puppies are drooling everywhere.
Every-time I fix a snack
It’s a new puppy attack.

So cute with eyes so wide
Staring at me without so much aside.
First one, then two and now three, 
Sitting in front of me like a row of trees.

I save portions for one and all
And once fed, they wander off down the hall.
When I eat, it’s so much like a zoo, 
Now I’m left with three puddles of goo.

Animals

animals are so cute and cuddly they 
are fun to be with. 
A animal will do you no wrong. 
They can be your best friend too. 
They can also be your eyes when you 
are unable to see. 
They can pertect you from intruders 
and warn you of any danger. 
Animals like to be near you they love 
to be carressed and played with 
They have big ones they have little 
ones there is always a animal out 
there for you 
Animals can take the loneliness out 
of lonely 
Everyone should have one as a pet 
or a companion for they need us 
as we need 
them.

A Conversation With An Ape

If an ape came into my living room, 
And could talk fluently and converse, 
I’d speak with him about sociology, 
Or to her about avoiding the perverse. 

I’d ask how to form friendships, 
How to foster appreciation within, 
Making hints at a lack of confidence, 
Causes me to falter and not win. 

I’d ask about the disadvantaged, 
The weaker members who lack chance, 
About how to elevate and free them, 
Their everyday experience to enhance. 

I’d inquire about surprise, revelation, 
To learn from his posture to life, 
So that I could educate the kids, 
On ways to deal with strife. 

I’d ask if he’s embarrassed to be, 
The king ape with lots of women, 
Or if he just accepts his role, 
Without distaste or hesitation. 

I’d ask if she redistributed wealth, 
Fruit each time to the more weak,
And decide to vote for socialism, 
Or for social democracy’s cheek. 

I’d ask about his favourite girl, 
How often he returned for more, 
And stand up for personalities, 
In every profession’s shore. 

I’d ask what she thought about, 
In the spare time of her day, 
And just accept the relationality,
That makes secularism okay. 

I’d offer him a coffee, with help, 
And accept he did not want sugar, 
And reorganise my meaty diet, 
To become about veggies eager.

Burnt Verse: Silhouettes I

Hoodwinked By The Destroyer Of Nations

Modern Philosophy
Pet  Psychiatry
High Technology

These entities become the demigod 
We have place our country under it's authority

Father
Son
Holy Spirit

The God our nation crawled after
For protection
For provision
For guidance 

Our nation grew up
It was  nurture
It was blessed
It progressed

Then at a Opportune  time
The Destroyer Of Nations whispered deceitful words in our ears

That diluted our minds
 with the thoughts that  all our blessing were from the works of our own hands
That poisoned our heart against God
We became un thankful
We became disobedient 
We filed away God with all the methodological  deities 

We erected new alters to worship our new  demigod of
Modern philosophy
Pet  Psychiatry
High Technology

 The blessing  of our demigod on our nation are 
Destitution
Depravity 
Regression
desperation

Salvation for our country is only one step back
Turn back to The God of This countries youth .

Alligators

Beware from alligators,
A notice board was hanged,
Outside the pond,
And water was very quiet.

I tried to look around,
I haven’t seen any alligator,
But suddenly an animal came,
And bend to drink water.

I have seen a giant alligator,
Attacked on an animal,
But a poor animal has lost his life,
But board was still hanging.

I have seen thousands alligators,
In white clothes but never seen, 
Any notice board, is system so worst?
They are sucking bribery who noticed.

The Human Kind

During some time in life, the caged animal is set free
Taking on the world so aggressively
No longer at the parent's beckon call
They no longer are staring at their bedroom walls
They take flight and start living their own lives
As they grow, from their backs they will have to remove some knives
Where is the compassion, a lack of  it these days
Some become homebodies, others become strays
Strays should be neutered or spayed
Self preservation is a natural instinct
Life is so precious, can pass by in a blink
Life should be held in high regard and  respect
The worst animal is human in many aspects
Kindness to others comes in slivers
By far the takers outnumber the givers
They say that we are all coming to the end of our time 
The hints of it are evident, I guess there has to be more dramatic signs
We are of course talking about the human kind

Jesus Came Riding On A Donkey

Donkey’s in the land of Israel in the 1st century, 
Were used to carry goods about the country, 
But could also carry women, children and the ill, 
Because they were strong and quiet, did chill. 

So when Jesus entered Jerusalem on that day,
On the Sunday before his crucifixion, away, 
He deliberately chose a donkey to ride on, 
To communicate effectively, with abbreviation. 

A donkey was premium to the professions, 
The areas industry’s for selling productions, 
Which depended on donkeys for transportation, 
For their future and reputation’s momentum. 

So Jesus was saying by riding that donkey, 
That he was key to the wave that they did see, 
That how his death was remembered, thought, 
Would determine the legacy that he’d wrought. 

Also, he assumed a sensitivity by that ride, 
A vulnerability that he had and he felt inside, 
Because he took the place of a fragile person, 
Suggesting that memories were your liaison. 

So he won and achieved a triumphant entry, 
Because he proclaimed himself Christianity, 
And that, just like a child, he needs lifted up, 
Onto the donkey, where there’s a warm cup.
