Premium Member The Sum Of It
Some snakes are called adders
And I know that's true
Most adders are very good at sums
Others can't add up to two
This must be a worry
For adders who can't add
This could make this type of snake
Both miserable and sad
Cheer up little adder
There...Read More

Tales of Idolatry
Do not weep do not mourn
Do not move like a pawn
Back into his tight grasp
For that mans like an asp

Cleopatra is gone thanks
To his venomous pranks
Oh the fatal bite
Delivered so trite

Vipera aspis, get lost
You too, Naja Haja, tossed
Like a common...Read More

Premium Member The fools think I'm overtweeting - in Trump's own words
They don’t get it, bunch of fools
Don’t they see how the media drools
Over each and every tweet
Crafted not to be discreet.

Are they blind to my great skill
Of bending media to my will,
Time and again I pull that trick,
And they fall...Read More

Belly Full of Lies

Listen to what the snake charmers say:
We be sulfuric scaly bellies,
flicking poisonous tongues on the telly
Idoly speak pure Orwellie — 
Down is up   ...  famine be a feast sup
Tell money hungry fools they’re full of it,
when their...Read More

Next Moment

Gangsta politicians,
falling stars   ...   twinkling
of an eye 

Leper lips
	 halitosis blowing
Got there gun clips
and stacked deck 
	    poker chips ...
Sin City bullets overflowing

Body politic,
staph tongue infection
Still the voters ain’t 
getting sick

That first non-rhythmical matter, 
Floated on the new dust of light, 
To whet the eleventh spark clatter, 
Such that its dividend split tight; 
A web, a sea of ringed atmosphere, 
Then a cob of meteoric compression, 
Hurling towards a black...Read More

Premium Member Mermaids

Beneath the deep blue sea, 
the broken hearts of mermaids bleed,
ululating for their love
happiness awaits above.

“Don't be afraid of the abyss 
the turtle offers his advice 
you cannot help but always miss
swim until your love is found 
your legs will...Read More

Premium Member A Warning to Fear
Some people have purloined from me,
That which meant what I mean to be,

Wicked witches and wizards in hidden lands,
Have taken my life from my hopeless hands.

But now I will fight till my very last breath,
To ensure they all burn and...Read More

Premium Member Snakes and Adders
T' was a shallow creeping envy,
Of a deviant design;
It slithered In quietly undetected,
To prey upon unsuspecting minds.

It built up false images and verses,
A phoney talent in every way;
Taking slander to its highest levels,
And breeding hate his favorite play.

He blinded his...Read More

Babylonia : Part Two - Noahs walk
Babylonia : Part Two -
Noah’s walk

Pandas chew bamboo, while you film them in the nude;
Red Elephants are extinct (Apart from a view).
Fly up high, escape the zoo’s!
The latest attraction is a Man named Hu.

Hu Man?  Strange, he’s not humane.

Lone warrior - a cyberpoem
Across the shadowed byte desert, a lone warrior limped.
Impelled by a spirited misanthropy, he plied the
idle partitions of mind and thirst.
An orphaned amorist, passionate, but alone.

And as he stumbled, the adders whispered hoarsely, and
the diodes siphoned the darkness, revealing the
atrophy,...Read More

Snake has been created to deter,
A symbol of power, sex and fear,
Equated with Satan Lucifer and demons in rear,
History where, millions of species,
To speak about listen and hear,
They are Pythons longer enough to devour,
An entire human and swallow him and...Read More

Photophopians Recoil

  the deal is sealed
 and the season
 ceases to be
 too far from fair
for the foul lair
of Master Bull-
frog frowns open 
to reveal rats
who race to ruin
like muddled moles
who prance on polls
they dread to...Read More

Hidden Dangers
She wandered slowly through the woods,
Admiring bluebells, ferns and trees;
The sound of birdsong in her ears,
Accompanied by buzzing bees.

She sat beside a little stream
And watched the fishes swimming by,
The water tasted fresh and cool -
Such beauty made her want to...Read More

Hopkins Snakes
Hopkins snakes

Old Hopkins had a rope ladder,
To keep snakes out of the house,
Snake killing sticks under the rain water tank,
In the shower, where a snake ate the mouse,
The fowls all lived up in the trees,
Brownies were sucking eggs down, (deadly...Read More

Picnic time Aussie style

Picnic time 12 noon, is dinner time
Was had beside the river
We would grill our lamb chops 
On pieces of fencing wire
Quartpot was all a quiver
Tea was cast into the old Quartpot
When the water almost boiled
And boiling...Read More
