South African Dream

All work and no play
May have made Matt 
A dull boy
All no work and no God
Has Matt with a lost soul
But he is moving on full steam
He is chasing the South African dream
He is going to give his family
The finer...Read More

Life of Balance
Come to my side and hold my hand
As we stroll through this maze called life.
I the teacher and you the student can travel side by side.
I see the whole forest 
And you one tree at a time.

Come to my side...Read More

Halloween Escape
Lose yourself within a song
For many with music you can never go wrong
Go deep sea exploring as you dive into a book
Perhaps search for buried treasure with Captain Hook
Choose for yourself a different name
Become a different character through realms of...Read More

     demolished boyhood house zen
located at 324 Level Road,

When life was really child's play
Oh, the stress-free, carefree world of children
O' take me back to the lil kids' playpen

When we tried on mom's cosmetics and lipsticks
and built playhouses with plastic blocks and bricks
And had fun with cooking set picnics

Anything could be a toy
and our...Read More

Lamentations of a proletariat
Lamentations of a proletariat 

Loaded to the brim, withouted in a pack of "obersver-non participants"
folded like a wrap, yet forced to lack in the ranks of "server-run-anticipants"
dare to pass a comment and... a knife to your jugular
they claim to pass,...Read More

Freud Attacks

I seem to have forgotten
the purpose of civilization
we are to animals 
as animals are to a basket of forks
C.J. Jung as the UFO pilot
in "Freud Attacks" a talkie
a flaming romp through the hubs of hell

bright future i hear
Tired to success
Bright future I hear….. They say that’s sweet
Only smart people get there. Like me by the way
Well the smartness has a price 
You can see the price; many books, heavy
I chase the future with a heavy load
Making smartness...Read More

The Elves Snow Party

Away up north where it’s snowing they say
the elves are preparing for Christmas day.
Big elves little elves, busier than bees
All building toys, for under Christmas trees.

Some work with hammers others building bikes,
some riding through the room on brand new trikes.
Tiny...Read More

All Work And No Play
Two roads diverged in a yellow 
wood
And I wondered if I really 
should
Take the one more traveled by
Or let my mind sprout wings 
and fly. 

I had a scheduled conference

And a ton of please reply to all
I need that project...Read More

Driving in my new luxury car
Richer then a movie star
All the lights shine on me

All work and no play

You don’t have to work
Every hour that God...Read More

god save the queen
royal hostage of history

suffering from her own power
constantly taken away
prisoner of blackmail to wash her hands clean 
poisonous people among you
no problem making them sweat for you
