Saucy Syllables Scribbled
tactic theories tamed
by moaning brain
callous crescendoes' bait
airy acumen craved
felon feasts fostered
hoity twin triggered

rusty rules reeled
raging rumple reek
punctured politics' spree

dark dances dribbled
saucy syllables scribbled
did curves cripple

lanky lust birthed
vying veil's verge.

Gullible Greek Bled
hoisted hanker bruised
vying voluptuous view
eerie oddities oozed
fostering felon fluid
porous pills punctured
sassy seals structured

mental horizon melted
gnawing gaunt glued
hefty heels drooled

pulpy peers pulsed
gnashing gifts gulped
callous crest cupped

gullible Greek bled
etched acumen ebbed.

Beware ...
they are coming ...
I hear them as they tap their invariable
pulses on my spirit, like steel drums
in the Cruzan night, all at once frightening
and irresistibly intoxicating - the warm
blanket, doom ...

I find it unremarkable ...

The Nightriders

Under the spectrum of chameleon sky
the transiting sun shines deceptively
on the masked faces of ingenious craft, 
walk you enticed on blind garden path.

In the dense night of broken dreams
you don’t hear their footfall of silence.
Their sneaky eyes probe to consume

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

Go down to your deepest places,
Where the past has left its traces,
Go right back to the very start,
When memory began to chart.

All the accumulated dirt,
You have to give your soul a clean,

(Still at the age of seventy-odd
Posing as a strutting Rock god),
Has to be the Stones' Mick Jagger.

First drew feminine moans
As they burst on the scene.

I would have thanked him

Deaf to God's creatures painful moos

As their carcasses pile up to the skies.
And their sanguine blood soaking God's
