First of all: poetry is anything now.
I never broke the rules.

The tranquilizing sanctuary of apathy
and anemic acquiescence

It burns more fiercely than the fires
of his frightful, pitiless daughter.

The Wall
Winnie, wild-eyed, went insane and sang
“Happy Birthday” in the rain, while she
washed away her bloody pain.

Now all day long she sings that song,
She sings it loud, she sings it strong,
Walled in a place she don’t belong.

For much unlike her maddened...Read More

Another Tom Wright Opinion

 Our society is suffering,
because of all the fake news.
Many practice “spinning”,
while presenting their views.

Those reporting the news,
should remain non-aligned.
But seems everybody now days,
has an axe to grind.

Politicians and pundits,
aren’t alone in this debasing.
We can’t recognize the...Read More

Quote :: The axe forgets, what the tree remembers. ....African proverb

The proverb is apt for me,
as the tree suffers, damaged,
the injured party, victim.
Great wisdom be acknowledged.

Remember how you hurt me
I can't forget the harm; I'll
not forgive for breaking heart.
I'll not...Read More

The Evergreen Tree

Upon the tree I set my sight
And see to my delight
With head tilted up
And hand shading eyes
In the boughs
Sagging from the snow
Birds of various colors 
Perched on the branches
Highlighted against the green
Under blue skies
And I am elated to...Read More

Twisted soul
is the fire.
without direction,
just the ambition.

I stray at the cherry forest,
listen the sadness of wind.
Last year,you were here,
This year,flowers wither

is letting people believe in hope

Memory is an axe,
it opens a new world

The pendulum swings back and forth

Since I was scholastically impaired,
Teachers were not people for whom I cared,
And I doubt if any remembered me
In the least enthusiastically -
When I left school, sans honour and glory,
I was firmly in the "dud"category,
As for declaring one teacher "first",

Too Loving

Some saw a clinging troll,
others the saccharine flesh
of a dark love.

The mother loomed over his brow,
swaddled his senses.
Each day, the boy
stumbled further from that
too loving embrace.
He grew ill-formed in mind
by the cloy of her.

Young girls recoiled,
older girls, twisted rumors
into strings...Read More

Teaching Chimps Some Words

We should teach the chimpanzees to read
the names of certain things. Objects like tools 
for instance
then label the tools: hammer, saw, axe,
screwdriver etcetera, then screws and nails.

Teach them just enough words to know
