Premium Member Family's Furiously Fab Reunion
Anecdotal ancestors are anxiously arriving.
Bringing Betty’s bugs behind Beauty’s book bag
Creepy Clementine chases Crazy Charlie
Deliberately doing dainty delicate dynamics.
Effortlessly engaging exciting English earls.
Furthermore furiously finding frivolous friends.
Generous grandma gestures gaily.
Hoping heavy hitters help Heroic Henry.
Ideally Indigo instills inky interment in...Read More

Karma Says
The Collector reckons debtors' folly
Aye, quicker than Hermes leaves to return
Once violent dictator, rightful surely
Now sequestered and fettered, so to mourn
As to whether a feather could weather a tether
A tether formed from the toughest of leather
Much as wood could never...Read More

A pattern from our history - albeit anecdotal
Pick any evil SOB - he's probably teetotal
Hitler didn't touch the booze,  and neither Torquemada
Bin Laden with a drink to choose took yak's milk - nothing harder
Pol Pot too forsook the brew,...Read More

Intimations Of My Late Mother As A Bachelorette

The Gospels share a negative understory,
thematic across all four.

However diverse these four voices may be
in describing and delineating Messianic love,
and political-economic priorities for poor spirits,
all four are univocal with anecdotal warnings:
If you are on the supremely powerful hoarding side

I gaped my silence to take a look
And I caught the world reading me like a book
I tested my reality in a mere luck”
Allowing my emotions run a muck
I rendered my beliefs to those anecdotal season

You are coming right along with your poem total
Yet your poem only had evidence that was anecdotal,
And after along for a while it had been wildly totted, 
Ended up and turned out to brightly be daily devoted.

A Man's best friend is his dog
 “A Man’s best friend is his dog”

Anecdotal history alone settles any dispute
but he’s just a dog all he needs to be is cute

Elegy for Michael Jackson (2)

Dance not again, he cannot dance with you
You weeping forests where the winds wail too
Let your bright tears fall in the pool of dew
The world of pop will never be the same again

Reverie of a Gangster
We had anecdotal tales to tattle of bruising battles
And through them tell of injuries we felt
Litanies lamenting limited lives sunken in debacles
Discarded in the putrid places we dwelt
And from that ruin of beginning I salvage naught
To explain the internecine wars...Read More

The Messenger
The bard’s tale begins here, without remedy,
This telling of here is, there is, and tomorrow is,
Predestined works of meticulous perception,  
A prophetic hunter searching inside the anecdotal,
Over uncountable eons for his vague lucidity,

An eremitic nomad perceiving his journeys path,

Don't Read This
You’re not allowed to read this poem!
Unless your name is Jeroboam.
So stop right now before you start,
A mindless poem with no heart.
No need to let your eyes a’ wander,
You must have tons of time to squander --
Looking at this awful...Read More
