Poet Destroyed??

Poet Destroyer!
Billy the kidster got shot.
My draw is quicker!

Poet Destroyer!
The Joker was the punch line.
My slams entertain!

Poet Destroyer!
Your words have earned my respect,
And earned my challenge!

Poet Destroyer!
Do not underestimate
Your new challenger!

Poet Destroyer!
Tell your "boyfriend" that I said
"Do not miss a word!"

War is good for greed.
Hatred!  Repugnance.  And death…
It reinstates need.

Come by the thousands

Hungry, desperate, each day

Greece's agony mounts!*


Home lost, new home found

Distant shores opening arms

Tears flooding the seas

*Thousands of refugees and illegal immigrants enter Greece 
each day in search of a better future. Greece, despite its economic 
crisis and with an unemployment near 30% and salaries and pensions
 down by 40% helps the best way it can. Europe watches as more than 
two million of these unfortunate people live inside our country of ten million.

Bio in Short

It's been a good run
To the back side of sixty,
The short side of time.

First Hollywood kiss
Behind a pink crepe myrtle.
Thanks, Patsy Werner.

High school was okay.
Didn't help me to focus;
So, my mind wandered.

Surfed Bonzai Pipeline,
Big waves break into lava.
What made me do it?

Vietnam jungles.
I wondered why I was there.
America lost.

Smoking pot. Stereo.
Good fun in the seventies.
Psychedelics too.

And three wives later,
I finally found true love.
We're still together.

My destitute heart,
Saved by the sweetest angel.
I love you, Sandy.

Sooners are my team.
Most winning football program
In the Modern Era.

I am retired now.
But I have plenty to do.
Golf, primarily.

I've been writing more.
Perhaps I will write a book.
I have many tales.

I'd chase young girls; but,
Girls with a "grampa" fetish
Are so hard to find.

If I am lucky,
I will just drop dead one day.
With my peace of mind.

Yes, made a good run
To the back side of sixty,
The short side of time.

Mother's hope shot!
Who will rescue tomorrow?
Unending woe...
Midnight town crier!
Women and children take cover
Men running to war.
Dry leaf swaying down
Looking from where it falls
Fresh leaves, take caution.
Not minding the meat,
Isolated to ponder,
Woeing solution. 
Plates without hope
war came frowning
never to smile.
