School dances! What hateful memories they are,
Dreaded obligatory occasions,
Yours Truly emphatically did not star,
Not being of a social persuasion.

Dreaded obligatory occasions -
Maybe most students thought they were fun,
Not being of a social persuasion,
I would have preferred to miss every one.

"Reality is something you rise above".
Liza Minnelli. 

To rise above our daily reality
Is indeed a most intriguing concept,
To face our flaws in all their totality
May be very difficult to accept,
Even supposing our minds are adept;
While I appreciate the idea,
I do...Read More

Praying and kneeling,
My God had set me reeling;
Have found His feeling.

While Jesus had wept;
His promises He still kept;
At doing adept.

God  had been abrupt;
Will not let us be corrupt;
Then with God we supped.

By God welcome were,

Oh Amazonian tea
A demonic stigma precedes you
Your evil is in your wonderous healing
You adept unmasker
Ceremonious enlightener
Purging our torso to allow cleansing of our souls
Unbarring portals we've kept forcibly sealed
Transporting us to a realm where our recollection still breathes
Disentombing memories

Written: by Tom Wright

Politicians are so adept,
at the parsing of speech.
Due to this flawed thinking,
there’s a vast party breech.

Their association with lobbyist,
is shielded from sight.
Becoming a perk of the job,
to have palms greased at night.

Oneupmanship now prevails,
and most seek a...Read More

Economically comfortable civilians,
without militarized propaganda indoctrination,
without physical neglect or abuse experience,
without religious blame and shame intimidation,
may sustainably recognize themselves as safe,
while stressed about why they do not matter,
do not feel needed
or even uniquely loved and wanted.

We are not born this...Read More

Pick a jewel from our life
By inquiry, without strife

In love with nature as a cow
Grazing where the lilies blow.

Cold shower today - (early afternoon)
September eighth two thousand

What conundrum lies under life's foxy rinds

Most politicians are liars
(As they are adept in tricks)

Once there was a butterfly 
Who wished that she could soar—
She was quite adept at fluttering,
But longed for something more.

If only she could be a bird,
Like an Eagle, or a Wren—
How proudly she could touch the sky,
And be admired then.
