I'm smaller and harmless if I'm male
and I have no venom. I'm dangerous 
and much bigger if I'm female. It's hard

Better safe than sorry!

I look innocuous. I'm no bigger than...Read More

Premium Member Just another cliche

Whether it will succeed in the nick of time.
So better safe than sorry, as they say,
A good beginning makes a good ending, I pray.

A Safe State Of Affairs
Better safe than sorry?
Fallacy.
I say, better sorry than safe.
Even if brought, calamity.

a new people's strangeness.
New cultures, new stars, new planets.
Safe hides in fortified sameness.
Safe only discovered a sandy smile.
Flightless, oversized...Read More

Manhunt
Close the city! Stop the cars!
Folks should stay inside
While the police determine where
The bomber chose to hide.

Shut the airport! Halt the trains!
Cancel all you’ve planned;
There’s a madman on the loose,
So all should understand.

If I lived near Boston, though,
I think I’d...Read More

Welcome Back to School
It is almost that time,
the summer is disappearing in the skies.
Have to make sure I am able to educate,
teaching writing to the youth is how I elevate.

a pretty business suit,
2 pens and a pencil,
a cup of...Read More

The Tenth Anniversary of 9-11 is Tomorrow

sinners.
My trip out of town will be a different

Loving day, by day

Picture there,a wedding
a supper with a feast
where the last is first
and the grandest is the least;
Picture all the people,
Loving day,...Read More
