What to do do about those under the table
What to do about those under the table?
When those paying them are unable,
And have gone back to their scrabble.

Should we be worried they might become unstable,
When a constable is to us unreachable.

If an amnesty was the solution most suitable,
Would they...Read More

Keyboard Warrior
Tap, tippy tap, tap, you sit there, and you type.
You’ve spewed all sorts of filth, that’s fine, I found the wipes.
All wretched, gnarled and empty, you poured onto that page.
Did you feel some satisfaction, while you bled pathetic rage.

Optimistic Faith
A new beginning has risen
A chance to spread my wings
Taking flight into the world
Exploring what it has to offer.
Let’s do this.

Journals of life’s lessons,
Elder’s whispers of wisdom
And the Word
Guide me along my way
I can do this.

Sometimes slowly

Self Destructive Self-Defense Mechanism
Gorging upon self-indulgence
while your soul lies starving in the corner
Dissociatively liberated from consequence
as the host endures accountability

Psychotically clinging to a desirable fiction
(an accessible and depraved fantasy)
and basking in its soothing narratives
whenever the tangible becomes inconvenient

Dipping sporadically into a permeable

Incumbent onus to stem tide of global warming
Plethora of humans (think overpopulation)

pitching civilization headlong into oblivion

admirably self sufficient unto themselves,

So, it starts years ago, with protests in the streets
People allowed to lay on the road, block traffic
Then, start fires, attack police, as they’re told to stand down!
Criminals with 18+ offenses free to roam as they please
Thousands others were released...Read More

I will be okay. 
You, she, we, me, us...

All the time,

Screaming at the mirror,

I am responsible
and responsive
to every human built shelter
I have experienced as home,
mine to use,
to buy further improvements or sell,
to renovate or destroy.

I am responsible
and vulnerably responsive
to every lot of unimproved real estate,
every plot against healthy soil
and supporting water systems

Love is a beautiful
marvelous display of emotions
as one is led upon a trail of magic moments.
Migrating from your heart to your soul
it captures your imagination from the beginning
and delivers a sense of belonging at the end.

How hard it can be
If they only knew
The responsibilities
The accountability
And the maturity it brings

I embraced it sincerely and with honour
The sweetness that does not leave my lips
The sourness that stays in my mouth

As race is concerned 
Beauty lies within 
Buried beneath the surface

Just read in the papers
your name once more;
illogical the powers
which huddle unseen.
You sat in my class,
scholarship’s pilgrim. 
I recall your nascent soul,
tranquil but with drive.

Now, your face, a shock
which scorches my eyes,
Pondering your death
mercifully, my spirit cries. 
Last year, reports...Read More

Too often anger wells in me
Like an unquenched dragon
Seeking answers shielded by
Wealthy or powerful pricks,
Truth shaded or obscured
By political appointees eager
To protect their benefactors.
What we really need is Truth
And accountability, punishment.

But one is heard among the voices.

Changing for a new heart that’s glad.

The other says get lost,...Read More
