No Isolated Cell Please

Jerry Sandusky
will serve well as a boy-toy
for a prison gang

An eye for an eye...
He'll receive rather than give
the next thirty years

Ninety-eight years old
when his wrinkled ass gets out
Bet it will be sore...

***Any parent or would be parent who does not know who this man is would do well to look him up on the internet or just watch the news...

Do The Best for America Now

They want the best for
the American people
and their children and

their grandchildren too--
both parties have made these claims 
over and over

in speeches galore
so why can't the Democrats
and Republicans

not only want the
best, but do the best for our
America NOW?!

One in three

Offspring of the rib
Soft enticement of the flesh ---
Woman beauty draped

Mother rebelling
Children to sag on the breast
Eve pining at God

Mother submitting
Heaven's pleasure in the skin
Mary, bringing the Christ

Magdalene, my thirst
For caress of oil and love
Open core of milk

Summon Anat too
With Aphrodite, Venus kiss
And the open pea

All one in love's three
The triumvirate of praise
The edge of prayer

Goddesses are whores
And whores as goddess reigns still
Love sells men cheap to dreams

Samson, not I,
Menelaus too, heart blind
Left me stupefied

And yet I am sure
Any woman's love is better
Than no love at all

Mother's are virgins
In son's eyes, wives are his shrines
And whores are his peace

Where sin mars desire
And the moon sets blood on fire
For breast and children.

The Rehabilitation of Killers ( Two Senryu Trilogies)

Out of water
Moses killed a task master
And hid the body.

In the wilderness
Forty years and reconciled
Called by Burning Bush

Out of the desert
Moses, the deliverer,
Set God's people free.


A true Pharisee
Of Pharisees, Paul stood by
Consenting killings.

Killing more Christians
Blinded, thrown off his high horse
Sent to a Christian

The scales fell away.
Paul became a man of God...
Trusted apostle.

Many Strong Have Fallen

Delilah's pleasures
Her head lain in Samson's lap
Blind, he grinds around

Hid to no prophet

Stronger have fallen
Your resistance is futile
If you compromise

Rhyme's Reason

. . . stiff rhyme don't impose,
               use, describing toad or rose,
                         crisp, uncluttered prose . . .

. . . with clipped cadences,
               a thought sparkles, and dances,
                         mind's dalliances . . .

. . . rhyme, as reason's gown,
               doesn't  dumb or drab thoughts down,
                         as gem in the crown . . .
