Man with no morals

Ask me not where, when, why or how

Solar Eclipse

There's something I feel that I still haven't said,
Quotes that haven't straddled my lips.
When poetry wheels don't turn in my head,
Words can cast a solar eclipse.

TO POETS

To poets living and poets to come
Strive not to race the worldly fame
Gather the world in a little frame
The world is wild but you can tame
And if it fell and went apart
You the poets are the ones to blame.


Short International poem by Honestly JT| Details | |

Perennial

There's much in life,
I should be thankful for;
Like opening my eyes,
To daylight once more.
Though I could be dead,
And six feet below,
I've been protected, 
And God said, "No".

DEMOCRACY

The Mount Everest,

To the hight of Indian democracy,

India won the biggest democracy,

By small,small political defeats,

In the great Indian face,

Democracy and Indian Ocean,

The two eyes!






Short International poem by Laura Breidenthal| Details | |

You Will Feel

be mindful
human rights are human ways
that lead down

be careful
the words above always remain
wear no crown

trap the sin
destroy the lie of conceit
look within

don't consume all that you see
you will feel
wrong like fire

Short International poem by Asad Aamir| Details | |

The Loop

Away from home,
Where I stay,
Is the land of another.

The food I eat,
The people I meet,
Occupy the mind of another.

The sky that is,
Unfamiliar to me,
Is the home of another.

The sickness I feel,
Is shared with me,
In the heart of another.

Short International poem by Honestly JT| Details | |

One World

Love is not a color,
No hue, neither a race.
All of our blood is the same, 
That runs deep within our veins.

If we could lift up each other,
And know that we all care.
If we help our sisters and brothers,
There's a bond that we'll share.

Rootin' Tootin' Vladimir Putin

Rootin’ Tootin’ Vladimir Putin
is by far the worst rat bastard
of The Twenty First Century.
His competitors pale in comparison.
They are rat bastards too,
including the Iranian mullahs
and the Chinese commie leaders;
but compared to Vlad The Rotten Rat
they are little more than mousey meanies.

Short International poem by Honestly JT| Details | |

When The Sun Rises

Dear God, when the sun rises,
I can only wish for a better day.
I'm not looking for consolation prizes;
I know life can't go entirely my way.

I just want to love and be loved,
To have hope and a great faith.
Sometimes the choices in life are tough,
After sunrise creates a new day.

Tell Me Isn't So Bill Cosby

I have a very negative opinion
of most of the Hollywood crowd.
Many of them are rich snotty assholes,
clueless commie loving SOBs
who think they are international statesmen.
But I must admit I thought Bill Cosby
was a very decent human being.
WOW! Was I ever mistaken!
Tell me it isn’t so Bill Cosby!

Short International poem by Atour Tamrazov| Details | |

We are okay,
All our Graces say:
Good luck!
Enjoy these poems
Every day,
Let our children
Play this game!

Eddy Snowden-2

Edward Snowden

When Edward Snowden* snowed in,
no one thought it a sin,
save the snooping sultans  who froze.
When on the run or cubby-holed, for friends, he had only  woes.

11  jul 13, Clerihew


* Eddy is a former NSA systems analyst who recently leaked details of U.S and British top secret mass surveillance programs.

The Rhyme

I've Always been attracted
to the melody of the dancing rhyme
along the black and white keys
there is a voice of international language
through the Steinway and Baldwin
through the casio and yamaha
the message comes out of my fingers
from the old and young
its a sound that touches ev'ryone
lets you laugh and cry
lets you discover how to fly.

                And a Japanese Takoyaki   all they are love cuisines man

POETRYSOUPERS - DO WE QUESTION OURSELVES

POETRYSOUPERS - DO WE QUESTION OURSELVES?

This is our time.
Freedom we do have.
Why are we in denial?

We are Soupers.
International
When well our forums speak?

Let’s meet up!
Let’s structure voice!
Are we afraid to form?

This is our time.
Freedom we do have.
Why are we not renowned?
