DEFEAT CAUSES
Accursed thing-cravings

Absence of God’s leadership

Cause my spiritual defeat.*

Incantation to you
Manifesting the Phantom 
with the Hysteria Paroxysm Blues

Hellfire Club got nothin’ on you
Hot hysteria paroxysms 
flying on your broom

Black cat purrs
You, the catnip for this girl

On Rode the Valiant
Through the gates of Absalom,
steed and gate did ride,
charging fast and furious
o'er centuries gone by;
peace did shout in vain,
the Lidless Prophets...
must come again,
nigh is the evening sky
but full of hope

The ramparts held fast, ballast and beam,
cannon-fire bombasting flesh and bone,
groans...Read More

I stoked every fire echoing into the mouth of arthritis?
A rhyming balm develops epileptic quasar fear?
If so, will he enter arbitration “Sold Out”?
Sleep wills She to cocoon beside you, Artemis?
Resplendent fallow flowers ecstasy coriander?
Do we sate the moons of Jupiter?

Premium Member Disappointing Friends
Just which one makes you saddest mate
When you must disappoint a friend
Or when they’ve disappointed you?
I’ve pondered this a lot of late
As more and more friends meet their fate.
I shouldn’t blame them but I do,
Though not one chose to have...Read More

Whatever It Takes
When two choose each the other
Having decided this, their fate
A bond, a pledge, a vow replaces
That which, unchosen, cannot wait
Even when it requires a warrior resolute,
Vitality deathless, and sacrifice continuous,
Eternal must the pledge be, or
Risk betrayal's scourge sinuous.

It is at...Read More

Israel’s father, Jacob
had lived a life of tricks and cons, 
till at last he’d met his match of matches
when he came face to face with his mighty God.

King David and Bathsheba

King David and Bathsheba…

David was a great king,
who sinned and took a great fall.
As lust grabbed his heart,
When Bathsheba he saw!

In his heart... he sinned as 
lust was conceived.
A plan of murderous lot
was soon achieved!

This sin led to another!

Absaloms Rebellion
Absalom’s Rebellion

After Amnon raped Tamar,
who was Absalom’s beautiful sister,
Absalom plotted to kill
His incestuous, lustful brother.
Amnon fled to Talmai 
to his mother’s father, the king.
Absalom’s rebellion may have been avoided, 
with punishment David failed to bring.

King David exiled Absalom;
had no part...Read More
