Then you mythologies it

Thanksgiving in the mirror

With "plenty" this culture's endowed 
Bad outcomes are never allowed!
But nature's stealthy
And notes for the wealthy
Silver linings come with a cloud

Politics is clearly a ruse
With culture this skewed  
Truths appear to be rude
And those who won’t lie always lose

American hair,

Culture so strong,
Why does this make,
My culture wrong.

Church Culture

All the baboons of the churches scream in my blood,
And all the wild hot devils of the churches whine in my
Frankly, I fear this culture ---
So callous,
So tough,
So frigid.

Short Culture poem by chipepo lwele| Details |


Borrowing appettite;
Increasing gradually.
Weary to live within means.
Handcap of saving culture;
Hand-to mouth disposition.
Lender connives with bailiff!

The Only Punk Rock Girl

1756 to one
I stood alone
I stood
In a culture of music
Unlike anyone else's 
Flogging Molly
Scathed my back
With mad plaid in my mind
And Was Beder Das
Youth of rebellion
I stand true.

Gabrielle Giffords in the Wild West

Hawaii’s coffee is Kona
Mexico’s beer is Corona
But Tucson loves Stock
And now owns a used Glock
For the gun culture of Arizona     

Author's note:  News flash--Glocks are now flying off the shelves in Arizona.

Unconscionable Extinction....

Nature's stature waning fast
glaring culture feining gasp
unbridled ostracize....

Organisms will retain
nature's glory will regain
human nature can't contain
raping resource bane disdain....

Short Culture poem by Christi Kopp| Details |

Head of State

On the coast geographically
New York a cradle of culture
Liberty dwells here for sure
As well as Justice politically 

Strength of character
Defines both a city and state
Moving forward early until late
Big Apple like a diamond glitter

Short Culture poem by olusegun Arowolo| Details |

A Beast

A beast,wicked and callous without culture,
He injured me several times but never again,
Accident I had months ago was~him;I am sure,
lustful and diabolical with a Canker worm in his brain.

Short Culture poem by Donn Ronquillo| Details |

IGGUROT native filipino indian

teeming with pride,
humble and its peen.
sometimes only wearing underwear.
culture so rare.
dancing on there own line of drumbeats, 
minding there own a folk music.
so keen on their own particular heritage of kin,
made u of their own ideas and dreams.

Short Culture poem by Johnny Pyro| Details |

love in 15 words or less

The universal language, selfless culture, true religion, answered question and yet
questionable (illogical) answer.


Answered question, answered answer, questionable (illogical) & unquestionable answer yet
looks like an unanswered answer.

Short Culture poem by Melani Udaeta| Details |

Billboards and Bumper Stickers

Billboards and bumper stickers
as we drive down the highway
little pieces of culture
drifting all along the way;
colors, messages, pictures
so many things we see
so few that we remember
billboards and bumper stickers
covered frequently
with new messages to be discovered

Short Culture poem by Preston Johnson| Details |

What Cannot Be Seen

Studying the nature of humans throughout
this world of ours we live.
You could see that culture's about
what things that we can give.
But the truth comes out behind the scenes,
lies and deceit bore too.
So if we see what cannot be seen,
then dreams may actually come true.

Short Culture poem by Arty Rico Jones| Details |


My new home is in a new country.
I know very little of the language and culture.
Memories of my old country will be in my heart forever
The love of my old country will always remain.
I leave for a better life and new opportunities 
Hoping to make a bright future for me and my family.

Short Culture poem by John Trusty| Details |


Just a thought for fans of Kdash,

K was outed by Dog named Snoop.

Video jus called her garden tool trash,

alerting brothers, he shovels the poop!

For the Chastushka contest. 

Hardly political but Snoop really reflected upon the “culture” of K.

Props to Snoop Dog!

Short Culture poem by Duke Beaufort| Details |


The US must generate jobs
And Petroleum Inc. wants mobs
Of workers to toil
Mining more gas and oil
But from the green future this robs

Is drilling the place to invest?
Can fossil fuel use still attest
To progress desired?
The car culture it sired
Drives Earth to a state sorely stressed

Short Culture poem by Charmaine Chircop| Details |

just a note 1 ,human race

Malta~my country

a small island with a big heart

The world~my homeland

your homeland,whoever you are

 the land of all human race

So lets live like a sister ,a brother

Without prejudice,accept and love one another

afar from religion,culture and colour

 Lets together embrace

Soul Stance (revised)

Dark the eve, but bright the dawn;
the sun returns, the Earth’s reborn.

Upon the turning and the chime,
each race, each culture, God’s divine.

Yet, within the ebb and flow,
of blood and tide, the spirit goes….

Attempting with each opened mind,
to join the whole, for all of time……….

Short Culture poem by Justin Debrosse| Details |

Growth out of gravity

Trembling nerves born
The anxiety, dread, jealousy, scorn
And lover's touch to bring it back
To full persuasion, tempted assault

Gravity tangles in its throw away nest
A culture that produces garbage spinning
As spiritual pride unsettles, infests
We are called to lift
Reach up and achieve our mist

Short Culture poem by Debbie Guzzi| Details |

Attempting with each opened mind,
To join the whole, for all of time……….

Shynell-Tasha-Tinina-Chana (continued)

Listen, I know the game
don't give it up now.
I know my words don't align
with popular culture
and cut deeper than a two edged sword
and may cause discomfort but not
as much as the pain when he doesn't call again
and it was a fraud
There is no time for learning the hard way
Don't give it up now!

Teach Me The World

Who could not love culture or sharing each difference?
Do you not know what it feels like to be human?
Were you born with everything you need up until hence?
To miss out on that world would have me fuming!
We all need to figure out what it means to be another.
Quench the desire to spend your mind consuming.

Short Culture poem by Satish Verma| Details |


Watching the descent
without god
in an intelligent design.

Come have a look at
our adversary.
The template offers an open hand.

The culture of hunger
in this urbane obscenity
sitting on the payment making a motif.

The giant strode into
the hut to blame the poor
who would not eat his words.

Short Culture poem by Dr. Upma A. Sharma| Details |


Infrangible my soul resides in its heart,
Nonpareil on globe is our native land,
Debonnaire adds upto its dominion,
Iridescent culture its exquisite charm,
Acclivity and power we always dream of  !!

A golden sparrow once known, will resume its 
The entire world will shimmer with its splendour  !!

The Caribbean

small islands surround by the caribbean sea
from the greater and lesser antilles
Jamaica, Haiti, Cuba, Guyana just to name a few
the place where tourist comes to see the caribbean view
music, beaches, sports our culture they come to see
from that hard labour they want to be free.

Short Culture poem by Muyideen Ayinla| Details |

Guts and Glee

I see people of different race and culture
so calm and calculative i stare like the vulture.
I see mothers with babies strapped to their backs-
and men with goods in woven sacks.
I see the child with the hope of tomorrow,
so do i see the old with tears of sorrow,
all these that i see-
is nothing but guts and glee.

Short Culture poem by Michael Hilario| Details |

In The Company of Poets

At last
I found a place
In suspended animation
from all over the world
different race
language and culture
they gather together
for the only purpose

to express thy self
with play of words 
they thrive
to convay their emotions
to be heard
by sharing their gift
so much elated
In the Company of Poets

Short Culture poem by Glenn McCrary| Details |

Bradypodion pumilum

For each morning that spawns
I evade your virulent dialect
Each syllable born of your orifice

Is embellished by grisly tones
As helpless I am forsaken
To canker in ire

To awake is to honor the culture of the universe
Though your miserly revelry ceases to deliver amity
Whilst your exploits wither into oblivion

Short Culture poem by Catherine Torres| Details |


Saturated streets of crumbled ancient inheritance, 
Forgotten history condemned by our corroded eye,
Dresses that no longer dance, words that float without significance, 
Colors that no longer have a meaning, Culture? What Culture? You can not cherish what 
does not exist. And you can miss something you never had.

Short Culture poem by John Goodman| Details |

art that transcends

I always wanted a genre

that united punk, hiphop, jazz, rockabilly, country

that united us

I want joni mitchell meets johnny cash meets the clash

I want a united front of love and culture

I want to see the genres meet

as I want to see the peoples meet

Im talking about the art that meets, unites,

and transcends.

Short Culture poem by Rosanna LLamera| Details |

The Prisoner

I am a prisoner of my thoughts
I am a prisoner of my ambitions
I am a prisoner of my fantasy
I am a prisoner of their own culture
their own rules
their own rage
I am a prisoner of my own pride
my own hypocrate
my own dreams
I am a prisoner of my own act!
my own rakelessness
my own life.
Set me free
Set me free
The prisoner

Short Culture poem by Joanne Carty| Details |

Half of a woman

Half of a woman
for devouring man
is not the way nature planned 
for me to live
belonging like chattel
each day I battle
against the culture
that destroys me
and gather like vultures
ready to dissect
and probe 
and look
and feel
Each day I reflect
of how I am scarred
they dissipated my sex
and my future is charred.

Short Culture poem by Teddy Kimathi| Details |

Turtle and Elephant World

The Native American Indians believe that the world
was created on the back of a giant elephant,
that steps the back of a giant turtle;
by supernatural beings.

Today, the descendants of England
have brought with them their architecture and culture
to the Turtle and Elephant World,
making the Turtle's and Elephant's load heavier.

Short Culture poem by Brian Strand| Details |


Tissue,pigmented,black,brown or white,
Everyone equal in the creator's sight;
Whatever shaded membrane skin,
Just a covering,layered thin.
Purely an accident of birth,
Never a value of our worth;
Customs and culture the true divide,
Ignorance its willing guide.
Repercussion and backlash,we reap
When our thinking,stays skin deep.

Short Culture poem by Joseph Matose| Details |



Hawk up the clouds on a close watch
Vermin that stirs to swoop and catch!
Foraging for carrion is also its culture
The soaring, scouring hungry vulture!

So is He who dwells High and Above
Watchful always with an eye of Love
To see what stirs in Pain or in throe
Wounds to sooth and redirect its toe!

Stinging Flesh

The Smell of a flower so fresh and potent
Taste of virgin now become of bloom
Feel alive so tenderly touched upon
Gates of fire cinder my thoughts of temptation
A las heaven strikes my body and soul, I smile
His physique piled of smooth stone as of culture
To the dawn we awake to the sun
Hunting for feelings but my body won’t surrender

Short Culture poem by Duke Beaufort| Details |

Horsepower makes us proud

Rednecks make parts in the basement 
They've mastered piston emplacement
They'll bore out a block
To be bigger than stock
Displacement has no replacement

Author's note.  A really great guy in the office has a classic '67 Firebird
that will go really fast and has fun taking it to car shows in the area.
This is part of American culture. Yahoooo!

Short Culture poem by Scribbler Of Verses| Details |

One Billion Rising

Today we rise.

No more hiding in the shadows,

of culture,

No more silent complicity,

defensive arguments,
sickening pretences,
shabby excuses,

for the actions of men,

brutal and coarse and vulgar and obscene and murderous and abusive.

Today, we rise,

as one.

Today the change starts,

with me,
within me.

Today we rise.

Short Culture poem by Canny Amah| Details |

L-a-g-o-s! my city


Fantastic, my city
Of many surprises,
O, Ngozika,
& you just expect anything –
No! everything?
Not just the Nolly wood products!
’Tis a sort of world culture
Everything black in surplus,
Plus, of course,
Doses of Eurocenticism –
To know her well
You may get into a thousand pages!
Let’s get that in bits!

Short Culture poem by Satish Verma| Details |


You failed me.
I have started learning
from myself.

The man-made world,
a culture of stinginess-
overtakes the ism.

Confronting the hawks –
you scramble over
the wet shoulders of wounded sex.

In hiding
your own exit rope;
are you thinking to end the solitary confinement ?

I will wait
for the suffering to end –
and aurora to rise.

Satish Verma
