No tellin' how long coronavirus will keep me confined at home,
Since the guv'ner insists that I wash my hands and I'm not to roam!
It has upset my routine since its genesis in a place called Wuhan,
But it'll give me time...Read More

Premium Member Not So Euphoric
Not So Euphoric
Written: by Miracle Man Tom
1-24-2020

Feeling euphoric,
Was being healthy and happy. 
But as time wears on,
I’m easily agitated and snappy.

Some days I feel,
I’ve been through a meat grinder.
I wear thirty-two scars,
Which are a constant reminder.

I’ve been sutured, stapled,
And sometimes...Read More

Tory Envy
I wish I was a Tory,
It would be another story,
So much simpler not to care
Or have to be aware
Of how other folks must strive
To make a crust to stay alive.
I could keep my privileged indifference
Surrounded by a picket fence
I wouldn't...Read More

Purple people eater viz hits sleep deprived cannibal
Began during wee hours
of December first
tooth house sand nineteen
steeply self immersed

within insomnia, hence
sudden creative cloud burst
fingers slower than
fleeting thoughts, I cursed
nonetheless stitched,

doctored and nursed
the following continued
hours later with pursed
lips seriously, silently, and soundly

trying to craft lame poem, the worst

Premium Member Humility IS the Brightest Love
Love, I get love is more than a game the young play,
It is life one commits, not caged bird ‘shopped’ to mine
In the hope lives are saved that don’t sleep in harm’s way!
How can chemistry alter what man can’t refine?

So, you want to be a bureaucrat?
And a wise career, too, I must say.
It has its challenges, of course – coffee

will impede your efficiency to get
work done on time. But, hey, every job

Seasons Recouple
There’s comfort in knowing,
  things come and they go

The wind brings a newness,
  whether lilac or snow

There’s joy in all laughter,
   freely accrued

Music in words,
  spoken only by you

A place to be born,

What Was, Will Forever Be
Written: by Tom Wright
October 2015

In youth, 
I envisioned not what life would be, 
So with each day’s dawning, as sun came up;
I questioned, if ripening years I’d see,
As I daily supped from a bittersweet cup.

As years...Read More

Land of Misfits
If there was a safe land
He would go straight away
Crossing with open hands
And there hoping to stay

He would go straight away
Leaving us far behind
And there hoping to stay
Free from faces unkind

Leaving us far behind
Never stooping to aid
Free from faces unkind

Being Thankful
Recalling times when I knew youth
my prejudice was so uncouth
I’m thankful that I aged enough
as love outweighed that bitter stuff

Accruing interest in the rates of the heart

I've looked and listened over 
runaway tracks with brides 
aboard to be the new free

They tell of mis-demeaning from old 
gentleman that act as  young savages 
against a broken backdrop

Ranting and pitying over the pining
