Premium Member She Did Not Recognize Herself
The pretty bird was getting a scolding of a lifetime
My neighbor called me to look out.
It was funny.
At first.

The limb did not move.
He acted unruffled.
Was this scolding his usual fodder?
Was this his mate?

My neighbor phoned me.
Can you believe it? She...Read More

Harlot Of Love
He asked her why she acted so,
her answer was “Why not”

He asked her why her mood was vile,
she said “That’s all I've got”

He asked her then about their love,
gone missing and in doubt

She answered back while looking down,

Juniors :: Romblomanon Sonnet

When first met him, he acted like leader,
used to pretend as a great achiever;
sought to bypass the laid down procedure.
Some disliked him for acts as beleaguer;

His working process many did not like
his didactic style workforce did dislike.

His behaviour in office...Read More

and I do mean white privileged straight men,
came to their Democratic opposition
concerned about how depressing
December can be,
and all of winter,
come to think and feel
of dark discerning Advent,

So maybe we could stage
a comedic debate
about Trumpism,

To say the most extravagant...Read More
