To Young For War
Men glassed, broke, gunned down, dying 
Why do they feel the need for all this fighting,
Over pigment precious postcodes and petty people lying, 
Now there up in the sky flying.

Lay down your guns,
To save our daughters and sons,
Lay down the...Read More

I sit watch want to weep
seeing you sitting on the street
with cane made of wood
hand carved  not very good
a banged up sign in hand
sitting unable to stand
cars just pass you by
my heart wants to cry
no one worrying how you...Read More

love speaks
I took a chance,

that you would be the one

my banged up heart

beating new beats

life flows in through windows

and doors

long closed

love peeks through mirrored lenses

asking me if I feel lucky

well do I??

yes...yes I do...Read More

Inside A ‘72 Econoline

This old green van has a musty smell to it,
Like a pair of sweaty rancid socks
Mixed with half-empty beer cans.
It’s a banged up thing, this ’72 Econoline.
Scratches and mysterious dents 
Cover its façade,
Like boils on a hairless...Read More

My sweet summer baby turns four in July,
He’ll be whisked off to school in the blink of an eye,
Dressed as a clone and required to comply.

He’s got cute puppy fat and two cotton-soft cheeks,
His words are adorably wrong when he...Read More

"Black Hearted Love"

One key hidden
‘neath dry crackling
Autumn leaves
and silver-chorded 
spider webs
worn out, trodden over 
forgotten
it would seem
near the last door
it lies waiting.

I march through 
the War of the Roses'
mollases primed lies 
towards Winter,
with it’s arms outstretched
it's waiting for me

ESCAPE FROM WONDERLAND
On the run, again
Being chased by rogue police
I got to protest
That I’m innocent
I’m a law-abiding criminal
I mean citizen
On the last exit to wonderland
I ended up all banged up in hospital
After this constant battle
With guns and knives
Another one bites the dust
On...Read More

prison dont work
I have been in your prisons
I played the game
I know about loneliness
I felt the pain
Being banged up, 23 hours a day
This is good for no-one
It can drive you insane
The strong will live
And the weak can die
You say its rehabilitation

I'm the fast car that speeds by you and for a second you wish...Read More

An Ode to Silence
O great encompasser
of the three AM world
and the boundless countryside,
where the wind sprints gently
shedding its high heels,

I wish you would come more often,
to rest a weightless hand 
on a banged up shoulder,
and to plant a tender kiss
on a pale grizzled...Read More

She saw that some were rotten; they had spoiled at the root.

The more I think about this strife
The more I want to take his life
Some sickening, evil, hellish brute
Returned to his primal roots

And every step that he will take
His humanity shall forsake
God help him if we cross
For I’ll make him atone...Read More
