Building A Better Tree
Out there on a twist of fate, on razor backs, on oblivion's mistakes
Demons spin atomic particles like microscopic balls creating tables
Making them from something more than medieval trees
Lets call it demon wood or satanic particles for short
Atoms are too complicated...Read More

'Rebel Poetry'
'Rebel Poetry'

Rebelliousness... or normal conformities;
individually, of course, have differences,
a person's definitions may bar absurdities,
yet, who'd truly ignore rebel utterances?

Amateur writings are rarely publicised, so
who'd determine what's acceptable for verse?
Rebels can not be disciplined... no can do...
should one keep quiet: accept...Read More

Voltaire lived in the early 1700’s…he was born in Paris, France….
His words still have meaning today…if we’d give them half a chance.

If we had the opportunity…to talk to the famous Voltaire
I imagine the first word out of his mouth…would be...Read More

Fragile doors         in concrete floors

This be where the absurdities whisper
Curls become swirls
Tiny pigeons peck at your uncertainty
En masse ;

Things that defy description gather up rotten days
Grunt as the washing dries
As the kettle...Read More

The Smidget and Her Guru
The Puggily Smidgeburner and her Prettisome Guru
Huddled on the mountain searching for intensified solitude
Asking for answers on life's complicated absurdities
Which is near impossible in Galveston's low altitude

In the midst of a cerebral moment of blind groping
Puggily was unexplainably attracted to...Read More

I Left a World
I left a world darkened by injustice and human absurdities
That caused in the hearts of so many so many uncertainties.
I heard “Never again” so many times, so much in vain.
Will we ever be able to cease fire and ease the...Read More

The Small Hours
A devilish internal unknown truth,
unannounced, abruptly screamed
in or near my unprepared ear
may have been compelled
to cleave early morning's torpor
into two whimpering halves.
Sometimes it has been precisley that.
And sometimes it's only
an innocent cacophony of fighting cats.
Usually it's not even that.
More often...Read More

Premium Member Pirates Without Ships
Beware of pirates without a ship
like rebels without a transportive WinWin cooperative cause,
like ego-politicians without sacred ecological-economic portfolios.

One of the ways we communicate cooperative values
and choose not to communicate disvalues
is by how and where and when
we show up
and disappear into...Read More

Premium Member About Cat Burglaries
This is a mission statement
About some known absurdities 
I am calling for a placement
Of protection from cat burglaries!

This is not a victimless crime
As any cat owner will attest
Cat owners love their cats so much
When taken there should be an arrest!

Sporting a colourful chemise
A camera and a valise
Temptations so easily tease
Roaming as free as honeybees
Tourists hear beckonings as pleas
And capture beauty with much ease
Tiny things no bigger than peas
Or vast expanse of deep blue seas
Weeping willows sway in the breeze
Nice...Read More

Trump Polygamous
Trump Polygamous

Horrible Trump prefers to be polygamous,
Resulting in him becoming some sourpuss;
Likes to handle;
Even mandible,
And when he has gone we will never miss.

Jim Horn

Why do people like putting up with
all of Trump's absurdities anyway?

A one-handed man carrying a basket full of water,
A blind-y-dumb coward in the soldier quarters.
A dwarf cannonic giant climbing the mountain,
A-day littlun fetching from the fountain.
A faithful politician leading by examples,
A notorious terrorist erasing his samples.
A faithful pope bethrot'd to...Read More

Books A Resource V
Books are resource for them who deplore
Idiocy, silliness, folly. Where absurdities encore
There books no place get and can’t decor

Foolish loath them, wiser lavish more.

Premium Member Clanging Echoes

When I’ve gone
to the place
where my fathers’
have gone before me 
and the last tribute
has been paid to my memory,
may my singing words
crack the silence with clanging echoes.

May the clanging echoes
excite starving eyes
and taut wrinkled eardrums—
both to awareness—
guiding them
to actions of...Read More

Theatre of the Absurd

Like an actor in a theatre of the absurd,
there stepped onto the stage a horrid clown,
an ego-maniac who makes his own staff clap for him
and who fast is bringing a nation down.

Theatre of the absurd - fusion
Godot has arrived
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern
Alive and well thanks!

Crudely pasted to the fence
Who was too busy selling stolen goods
To notice he was a notice
Announcing a brand new play
A fusion of two classics

The streak of grey hairs,
  a tell tale sign,
A reminder of many
Come and gone.
A signpost of phases and

The voice, an alter ego;
Pubic hairs and mammary
A signpost of the changes of
  many moons
