The Curse of a Motor Mower
They’re motives of the weekend - they’re a gardener’s saving grace,
buzzing up and down and ‘round and ‘round cleaning up the place.
There’s nothing like the latest smell of a freshly mown down lawn,
once you ease a hiccup which can cause...Read More

Halloween night
Throw me to the wolfs 
And I will surely lead the pack
Some lead it from the front 
But I will lead it from the back

Watching every move 
The adversary makes
Hear my ghostly howl 
When the full moon wakes

When I sink...Read More

You can bet your bottom dollar

The trees all drip with Spanish...Read More

Premium Member Back In The Saddle Again
Zealously, she circles want-ads
Years have dashed her expectations.

Retirement? No benefits
Questionnaires she must complete.  Younger gals...Read More

Premium Member Better Than the Best Of
Every day you wake up happy,
There are people who wake up sad;
Every time you have some good luck
Others’ luck is being bad.

Every check-up that finds you healthy,
There is a diagnosis not as good;
Every time you eat a big meal,
There are...Read More

the great american witch hunt
since may 2010,
before any kind of trial at all has taken place,
bradley manning rots in solitary 
confinement, 
“being denied exercise, any kind of social 
interaction & sunlight” as well as often 
“being kept completely naked”
clearly undergoing what some have rightly...Read More
