"What a fine day for a picnic," my friends all said,
In the dog days of summer, with the hot sun overhead.

We would all go for a swim, and then have a fine lunch,
And would return refreshed and happier, we had...Read More

I Am
I am humbled because I've experienced humility.
I am encouraged because I've been discouraged.
I am confident because I've seen hope.
I am beautiful because God has given me life.
I am forgiven because I've admitted guilt.
I am responsible because of irresponsibility.
I am qualified...Read More

Pardon mine allegiance to infidelity
Unfaithful marital transgressions
self admitted indictment,
crime and punishment,
no longer think high lee
entailing no mister re: demeanors,
I searingly weathered

(George by bushed, albeit thankfully,
no unwanted child left behind),
nonetheless one unforgettable
indelible, execrable, and abominable
professedly owned his
civil warring battle of life

transgressions undeservedly heaped

The genuine of simplicity is the wishing will,
arouses the splendor in content of still.
The scattering stories are matter of a baggage,

Those torn loose ends to know by the breathe,
finding pleasure in the cruelest...Read More

To get from A to Zee,
Requires Speed,
That and other trash;
Have whatever you fancy,
It’s Happy Hour,
Ice, Coke, Crack, dope……….
Know what I mean!

Ok admitted - not easy!
People need dough
To get what they crave,
Either you push
The stuff,
Give your body away,
Or you’re Daddy’s little...Read More

An Obscenity Trial
An Obscenity Trial
by Michael R. Burch
The defendant was a poet held in many iron restraints
against whom several critics cited numerous complaints.
They accused him of trying to reach the "common crowd,"
and they said his poems incited recitals far too loud.

Advice Better Late than Never
Better late than never

My Mother was admitted to A&E

Transient troubadour traverses terrestrial terrain
'Course as a grim teller of tall tales,

quasi roundelay I readily admitted to feign

and conformity I dissed deign

(Nigeria poem)

They gave us an inch
We took eels,
Left four jugs
At the shore, pronounced our future loaves of bread in them
Then waved to the wind.

They left their ancestors on our soil
So we worship it.
They tie us to it apron string,
Propitiating...Read More

I’ve hurt some people in my life
That didn’t deserve the pain
I often didn’t truly realize
The suffering they’d obtain

I’ve done some things that I regret
Sins that were terrible to name
But I know that God gives grace
In spite of all that seems...Read More

Mighty, calm and composed she lies,
Like a sleeping queen of Arabia.
The wind is blowing kindly and soft,
Barring the rise of her waves in wrath.

Besides the sea there lies a sand-dune,
Twinkling in sun and flying in wind.
Stars above are fewer than...Read More

The Sage
Firstly, I killed a man, 
Hatred mated with pride, 
Guts as conception leapt off the span, 
then will nurtured the twain. 

Hatred mated with pride, 
Made me await the media, 
then will nurtured the twain, 
And the cops came thither....Read More

College Admission Scandal
They wanted the best for their children,
hovering through the toddler years,
giving them what they wanted,
giving more to avoid any tears.

When their kids became teens, they wanted fame,
building an image for their now empty life,
devoid of moral direction and sense of...Read More

Premium Member So Many Dragons Come And Go
I’ve gone through several dragons; 
each one had to leave.
They’d discovered gifts and talents, 
to make their lives complete.

Musicians, sculptors, chefs and more; 
have trained within my home.
Once offered the chance to go, “Pro”; 
they went right out the door.

Who wanted some quick cash, 
And one Sunday she did pray at mass

Taken as a given
Connection pivots upon pure affection
A dovetail, mortis and pin
The keyhole to secret chambers		
Let these words testify 
Of the role you played
While life rehearsed my fate
Moments spent were not perceived
As just wasted time
Thoughts shared were genuine		
When the end...Read More
