Dismissal
We stand outside, in heat or cold 
And one by one, each class
Is marched outside to reunite
With we who wait, en masse.

The teachers watch to match each child 
With parent, sitter or
A nana or a grandpa
Huddled near the exit door.

Pleasant spring like day January 12th, 2020

Courtesy climate change

I would never wish to exchange

Premium Member Why
Upon this earth- I wonder why
we've come to live and dominate
a tiny sphere so lost, unseen
within our vast Galactic sky?
A primate- we've become most keen
among the rest to complicate
support of nature- abdicate
those laws for our survival's aid.
A mini-universe we've made,

Beer Goggles
There’s young girls and women
All frantically slimming
Perhaps they’re all seeking a mate

But blokes around here
Full of burgers and beer
Are ugly or well overweight

They wear their beer goggles
And when their mind boggles
They ask some old trout on a date

One snuck down...Read More

Blindsided to craft eye catching title
(alternately christened great insight

Ah.... so glad thee did ask

if lucky forthcoming praise

Suspended Transcendental Meditative State...

Temporarily relieves, loosens,
and detaches worldly weight,
albeit bearing heavily straight

this principled capital one citizen banker,
whose penurious plight
seeks to make lightweight
oppressive burden clawing

All that you have bottled up
Who will you tell?

Surrender Into Obliviousness level uno
Gray matter subjected to accumulate

The Devil is in the Details
The Devil’s watch has started and the time is consummate
A strange and tranquil calmness mocks our terrifying wait
There, just beyond our window moves like fearsome reprobates
A pair of tortuous demons meant all Hell to perpetrate

Dive into your dream
Work to make it mainstream


Cultivate
Your heart and mind clear
Body and soul spark cheer


Dedicate
Your time and space well
Live passion where you dwell

Quit when you're ahead
Meet the fear that you dread

Live love that blossoms
Be love that's most awesome

Button Size of Both Brains
Button Size of Both Brains

A button is size of both of their brains,
And all they do is develop more disdain;
So stop activity;
Observe nativity;
From their thrones abdicate and abstain.

The Monster In The Machine
Mine is an existence binary and subsidiary.
My ode is to code.
I move only to algor-rhythms. 
I output from your input. 
I’m built to calculate, tabulate, correlate.

Never to predicate, adjudicate, pontificate, 
or demand that you abdicate. 

But the end, my master,...Read More

To the younger generation
Volume control is a must in polite conversation.
A gentleman never reveals too much of himself,
neither does the poet. All chilled whiskey and ink

The Oak Leaf
The Oak Leaf

Tenaciously upon its bough 
The wintered, withered leaf
Sustains the Southern wind somehow
Like breakers on a reef. 

Each naked limb...a syncopate...
In "New Orleans Rag" time
And time again to abdicate 
This clinging from its clime. 

Aloft, above, abreast a hive
