Premium Member The Real Truth About Love
Not all, but most forms of love do more damage than good. The one universal proof is that countless people improperly raise children. Look where those poorly raised children go to, essentially everywhere. Being misguided and not being able to...Read More

Lockdown nothing to do but catch up and write about it SLAM
With the world in lockdown

But log onto soup

And write about it

In solitary confinement

Premium Member The grand ball
The Grand Ball.
The amorous ambient moon
Hung full and high
Perched within the Twinkling
Dark velveteen pincushion sky
The welcoming warmth of a pleasant
Summers embrace
Ambles on at a steady pace
Orange bright light
Seeps through large arched windows
From the stately house on yonder hill
Awaiting carriages to...Read More

All work and no play
Is not a way to live
All play and no work
Is all take
With not much give

Work is essential
No job no money
How would one survive
Life is not all milk and Honey
People have to strive

To be honest and Proud

dalliance in a bungalow
dalliance in a bungalow; euphony.
our mellifluous voices blend and 
no longer is mine demure

felicity fills our love lagoon
an effervescent elixir
that which is becoming of beauty

that, which is so ephemeral.
fugacious love succumbs to day

for when the gossamer web of amorance

My name is Magnus Moore, and I am far from pure.
See I can never die, I thought you might ask why.
No one is quite sure, for everyone forgets who I was, they are unsure.

Do you hear the whispers?
They are all around for those who listen.

For out of darkness the voices are risen.

Then speak it plain and...Read More

Porus Politicians'Art
moaning monkeys clustered
punctured passion littered
on taunted trail
callous commotions create
mumbling dusk tearing
wielding weary hisses

few gulped stance
puking mystic trance
leering felon prance

salient pairs' hood
squatting pleasure stool
saucy cards puke

porous politicians' art:
sundry characters craft.

Premium Member Reflection On An Aging Nomad
I finally finished retiring four years ago,
a process that started in my mid-fifties
due to late adopting kids with special needs,
including needs for me to be home
to personally walk them on,
harness them in,
and wheel them back off, their diverse buses

Scruple's Flaws
using Tamerlane verse (Edgar Allen Poe)

As windows on this world get stuck;
disgust demands space on the lip.
Events I have not thought about
reveal hatred, make me upchuck

and fills untrusting minds with doubt.
Men’s base unkindness gets a grip
attacking vision with its whip.

The world needs leaders, that it can respect,
lying to people builds distrust,
granted people can and do make up false beliefs,

You are the first obstacle

Refugee From Debauchery
There was man named Garrison,
and he lived the good life,
flush with that big trust-fund money,
he hungered for the night,
for booze and bodies tight,
the finest clubs were his domain,
his bar tabs were truly insane,
his one-night stands were numerous,
the affairs always light.

He...Read More

What efforts appeal to his

She answered none
This to the surprise of

Standings have more

To appear wise

Comes from his inability
To be wanted, only a foolish

We’re drowning our diners in sugar, it seems -
our food is obesity packaged as dreams!
