"The Door has opened, The Way is clear"

Weak, sick, dying  afeared of change,

They can't be led, or clasp the breadth.
We've now seen, yet they can not,
The light out there's for them's,...Read More

Incorrigible Recalcitrant - Doppelganger (mine)

Ala Goofus and Gallant 
highlights my diametrically 
divergent alter egos
always the reserved 
obedient docile boy
afeared to stray outside narrow

circumscribed comfort zone
figuratively tethered
extremely short leash
choked me like yoked oxen,
albeit non red dually bullish
under bated breath

otherwise submissive
internalizing fury...Read More

You’ll find this disgusting, but Rudolph was busting
He peed in that fish pond of mine
But it wasn’t tragic, cos Rudolph is magic
And he piddles sparkling wine

The water went hazy, my goldfish went crazy
And splashing all over the place
It’s true, don’t...Read More

Changeling cheered her doubts
Afeared mother of many clouds
Secretly placed by a wand’s haste
A godmother who’d offered to help

In Marshside Lea, there stood a tree, old in trunk and bough
'Twas long ago, this tale, although, it may still stand there now
And in its shade, the young sheep played as often did young lambs
Whilst in the eye, always nearby,...Read More

Heard a rumour

There's a rumour hitting town
It's party time real soon
Not a thing to wear
Have to ring to fix my hair

Hear Beyoncé will attend
Didn't know she was your friend
Will she wear clothes this time
Best she does she's past her prime

Has this party...Read More

Stage Flight
Stage Flight

How I talk is a flawed wiggle
Wish it were how I scribble
To pay back for being afeared
Moses grew a lengthy beard;
Though he endured stage fright
Mine is worst it is stage flight!

When first I considered penning a verse for the poetess,

Would say to me happiness be thine,
Verily thou shalt be free and fine,
The fringed curtains of thine eye advance,
‘Twill be easier than a courtier’s...Read More

lust in love
Wriggled in her arms
Lost in an adventure of romance 
Moving far afield 
Though I have no weakness for writing, 
My story got underway.
Wallowing in the admiralty of her beauty
Adorned with beautiful antique ornament.
Adulterated with the laudable attribute of nature
Epitomizing the...Read More
