Lady Liberty Speaks
Art History

I stand erect with outstretched hand Representing liberty, for many, a foreign land My fire dances an incessant jubilant glow
I represent hope for the oppressed to sow

 Pungent salts mixed with glassy sands

Chance to be
Fast pace
Cold
Hard pressed faces
Almost emotionally unavailable

Main thing
Working hard
Filling accounts as full as possible

The hours and days
Meeting deadlines
Satisfy the people's ego
Wearing masks
They want to see
Say things they want to hear

Into status and money
Diminishing who they really are
Likes and dislikes
Forgetting own voices

Becoming...Read More

What happens when you have negative balance? 
Does that mean the Prince does not get his allowance?

No longer a part of Russia very much free 
But our Prince in the United States...Read More

All is open

And even the blind have seen the unsealed :

Comatose pedestrians stop
Stare into the sky and wonder no more 
Feel their demons coming up through the floor 
Sense they are no longer senseless 
Can finally scream

Another Friday has arrived 
No meat I do sigh 
I eat the fishes from Saint Peter’s wishes 
Fried or grill 
The sea food fits the sacrificial concept bill 
Bring the tarter 
For a starter 
While other condiments enhance
This feeding chance...Read More

The British Working Classes
He wakes very morning
to trudge through his day
a labor of love
or just bills to pay?
it seems that forever
he's been burdened with debt
and retirement a time to reflect
or regret?
She awakes every morning
to labor all day
kids are in day care
there's really no...Read More

Penny Postcard, Wrong Address
Penny Postcard, Wrong Address
by Michael R. Burch

(for the victims and survivors of the Holocaust)

We saw their pictures:
tortured out of our imaginations
like golems.

We could not believe
in their frail extremities
or their gaunt faces,

pallid as our disbelief.
They are not
with us now ...

We have:

Word Wars
a trijan refrain

Demagogues fighting in a war
spar to find the liars.
Though it generates some rapport,
toleration backfires.
Demagogues lose in false debate.
Speak up, strive to keep the facts straight,
      demagogues, fight!

Lost: for the children of the Holocaust
Lost
?for the children of the Holocaust and the Nakba
by Michael R. Burch

Something inescapable is lost—
lost like a pale vapor curling up into shafts of moonlight,
vanishing in a gust of wind toward an expanse of stars
immeasurable and void.

Something uncapturable is gone—

When we reach a certain age
Money is an issue at this late stage
Our dwindling funds
Make it no longer fun
Our accounts are surely in need of some aid

I thought I knew about camels
But then found out, that's not the case
I thought they had a hump or two
And that they might spit in your face!

They will only spit when threatened
So don't be acting all crazy
What actually threatens them...Read More

A person's inner beauty is really what counts
Can be glamorous as a movie star by all accounts
But without the inner stuff
We're lacking the underbrush
That completes the picture on perfection grounds

Almost Time Angel’s cloud was dingy.
Pieces were breaking off, floating into the atmosphere.
It looked wrinkly and sad, creased in places, shabby, but not chic.
A large chunk broke off last night, and floated into the ether.

It is almost time, Little Angel...Read More

Rejected
12/21/19


Not going to pretend it
I've been feeling rejected
And disrespected
Nothing I said and did
Was effective
Time I take a sedative
Or maybe 10 of them

Was fine one minute then out the next second
THC, pharmaceuticals and alcohol ingested
For the pain, but it doesn't end...Read More

People entering Giant Tiger usually have grey hair
It's something to do with the tattered clothes they wear
Bank accounts are smaller
They have dwindling dollars
A mask solves the problem of being recognized there

Premium Member For what do we own
Is owning a house the uppermost treasure?
Or the ultimate car, designed for our pleasure?
Are jewels your most desirable need?
Or plenty of gold to subsidise greed?

I've read many accounts on that horrific war that was WWI ,it was supposed to end all wars.
It was trench warfare and men fought and died in hellish conditions.
It inspired me to write this fictional verse.
