New Poems

Man, who wrote his inner story
Who remembers subway token, 
Nickel, penny, silver dollar
Man who wrote his inuner story
Was he stranger to the glory?

Moonlight dust and darkness blurry
Lipstick lost its cherry color
Love transformed into tradition
Havoc mirrors intuition.
  
Acts of God correct translation
Means the end to Man...Read More

Do not say it is not your country

I know that corruption has slept cheerfully in the arms of our home 
Beautiful teenage girls have been raped 
on a daily basis 
School-going boys have been sodomized due to job vacancy 

I know that Liberia has lost its charming...Read More

Premium Member Reflection On An Aging Nomad
I finally finished retiring four years ago,
a process that started in my mid-fifties
due to late adopting kids with special needs,
including needs for me to be home
to personally walk them on,
harness them in,
and wheel them back off, their diverse buses
and robotic...Read More

'Home'

This place she calls home
They preach about women's rights
Yet, they're fed with rape twice a day
While sexual harassment has found a 
place to dwell

This place she calls home
Activists placards read 'Say No To Rape'
Sadly, at every corner of the streets

Dress and Redress

The brazen way some women dress,
I swear they’re in need of a redress.
With swarths of fresh skin exposed
decency demands they wear more clothes.
Activists for women’s rights (men mostly)
claim a redress is far too costly.
And at a time when a woman’s...Read More

Premium Member Hear Our Children's Plea
A world tormented by impending doom,
Where children rally in huddled throngs,
Their lives polluted from the womb,
How now to right their parent’s wrong.

Corals fast bleaching,
Forests torn down,
Activists preaching,
While pastures turn brown.

Sea levels fast rising,
Yet drought now abounds,
Politicians all shouting,
Their inaction astounds.

No world class historic buildings

No famous bus lines either.
No major parades seen on TV.
No zany activists with signs nor

see.

Premium Member Liberation's Pride
I wonder if fully liberated consciousness
can only focus on integrity
becoming;

If partial consciousness
and unconsciousness of left with right awareness
is the default of dis-integrity,
of wandering through detachment
of unwanted apartheid
and mutual apathy
about integrity's personal
national
global governing pride,
organic capacity to know
and appreciate
with active listening
and non-violently...Read More

We are Nasty Women

When we hear haughtiness, we name it

For selfish whims of a saboteur

We will not sheathe our sharpened minds

Premium Member Contract Against Greatness
In Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged"
she paints a nationalistically wealthy saint
where also lives a monochromatically utilitarian narcissist,
sucking on attachment to fame and power
for bought and sold ZeroSum accounting Souls.

If the perfectly powerful pure patriarchal patriot
were your own Atlas father,
you might feel...Read More

The Last Noel
Twelve accusers hoping
Eleven charges pending
Ten summoners summoning
Nine lawyers proselytizing
Eight defendants screaming
Seven protesters protesting
Six reporters reporting
Five ambulances on call.
Four morticians digging
Three activists sitting
Two clergymen preaching
One hangman salivating
And zero politicians waking
from their dreams.

He retired to his sanctuary
on the Eastern shore of the Thames River
three years ago,
an often frustrated permaculture organizer
for building cooperative social health
by creatively communicating climate wealth
growing ZeroZone positive multicultural tao-energy.

This proves reclusively frustrating
in large part because non-taoist neighbors and family
