Adjunct Professor
New semester.
Did my courses run?
Oh yeah, but too many. 
Work on my syllabi.
I promise I won’t cry.

The night before class.
I pace the kitchen.
Sending prayers up.
Are you listening;
Please make my students be nice.
Calling my friends for advice.

First day of class.
Please impress...Read More

I Cooked the Book that Would Not Tap
I Cooked the Book that Would Not Tap
A Doomsday, a nightmare gone wrong,
My hand shot with pain and didn’t stop,
Bandages hid the wound I wove for kong,
The silence echoed round the wheel fop.

I screamed with tears which said the...Read More

Hey kid, 
I heard you came into a trunk load of cash
Can I ask, do you know how to manage it?
Moving from poverty to wealth
is a big deal
Everybody you know,
a little piece they’re gonna wanna try to steal

We had an adjunct;
Truly bunch of bunk,
So had hid in trunk.

Premium Member Common Cold
It begins, almost always, with a sneeze, 
Which, in some cultures, 
Invites blessings, 
But, in some others, a curse,
As it’s held to be ominous!
Blessing or curse, soon the frequency
And the decibels increase—
Incredibly, irritatingly, inconveniently, and embarrassingly!

I wonder if it is...Read More

Karl Marx thought that religion 
Was the opiate of the masses,
Which is true as far as it goes.
In his times and in the circumstances,
He could not have thought better or worse—
Not, for instance, of the boomerang, that is,
The dialectic of...Read More

Before and After
I didn't find PSoup,
no, PSoup found me
I was a poet from my birth,
just not the poet I could be
Before coming to PSoup,
I was a message poet with my own style;
the words I delivered
could make you sad, could make you smile

Taking Mom to the Prom
The rented hall ways so surreal.
Cheerful alumnus ranting sex appeal.
Forgive my dropping a time bomb.
Taking Mother to the prom.
Our student body didn't shake.
All others escorted steady dates.
A proclivity prom, above all others.
Our band encrypted, "The Righteous Brothers".
Bobby Hatfield's introverted eyes,...Read More

Put poems in church newsletter, I certainly do dare
All poets say mine have become beyond compare
Can constantly forever hold you in suspense
Give in by reading poems and be one that relents.

Premium Member Theatre of my Soul
The flying sent projections free to see,
from adjunct Astrals singing bold decree.

Perched on Pisces’s cusp, forsaking Plato’s cave,
Puppets casting shadows, chancing me a slave.

They hang from dreams of higher forms, allures
Contempt in self when loving carnal cores.

Haunted by women’s passions...Read More

That's your lady playboy
left alone for a man like me.
Your failures create an opening

Penitentiary prone,
your woman needs companionship,
and she found a sensitive kinda guy!

The Darkness at Noon
Joy, gaiety and jubilation,
Party, merrymaking and celebration.
It was a remarkable day of Reena’s life;
Within hours she would be her lover’s wife.
Dressed in exquisite Indian wedding outfit,
With complimenting gold jewelry
An adjunct to her beauty.
She felt like royalty,
Adorned with lavish embroidery.
Preparing herself...Read More

A Need
Black storm clouds sweep across the sky
No where does one see a ray of light
Lost are all hopes all dreams
Pain no time can ever erase
Loneliness like a festering sore
A crying out for life, a need for love
A need to be...Read More

I try to make myself very scarce midst the teeming flock,
To reduce the risk of finding my neck on the chopping block!
Why do you put me through this annual frightful scare?
I pray that I won't become your Thanksgiving fare!

Like speck of dust from celestial ceilings, I cling
To evaporated water molecules rising, singing into the sky, vacuous regions
Netherworlds have seen me clawing my way OUT
But still I remain invisible to your naked eye
Naked and seen through like space that...Read More

How long in this adamnant course,
the rites perusal brings remorse,
as Jesus given to enforce
the rules of kinship to endorse!

By law, contingent life's concourse
like equity in path's divorce,
The Holy Grail, the one true force
as evermore, scened as resource!

But Jesus given, human...Read More
