The Politician
Oh, what lofty goals, big ideas here
Elect me! I will serve you, absolutely

I'm your guy, I will help you, I got your...Read More

So much to tell you! Pump-pump-pump!

To be quite Frank
A simple girl
But not really
Big ideas
Called silly

Lost in books
Survived by song
Modest looks
Childhood gone

A yellow star
Always, worn
To prove the scar
Jewish born

Her head, high
Her family frowned
She knew, not, why 
It should be down

The day came
When everything
She ever knew
Forever, changed

Pulled from school
Denied, goodbyes
Placed...Read More

Premium Member Maybe It Was Eleanor
Ever wonder where big ideas come from?

Memories of FDR
from newsreel clips -
a lion-headed striking man
with rakish grin,
jaw jutting proudly, 
signature cigarette holder
clenched in his teeth
tilted ever upward...
soaring to the heavens
as he cruises by
waving to admirers
in his convertible coupe.

Short List FDR...Read More

Dear Jonah
Tell me all your big ideas
Let’s see your greatest moves
Repeat yourself a thousand times
My interest, you won’t lose

Nerf guns and ninja kids
The one and only, Jackie Chan
The amazing things you did
And what you’ll do, when you’re a man

White man lies.
He is just a crack among the flies.
He is not blowing any minds.
He must know that the lives he contradicts despise him.
His stance is he is walking for a cause.
He states that it is illegal to...Read More

I need the sun
When the night falls
I don’t want to be alone
I want a place to call my home
The darkness feels so heavy and if I turn around I’ll run
All my big ideas are hollow now and everyone has gone
I need the sun

The List Of Alien Objects For Q
Make a list of objects worthy of merit
They must sparkle in the dark
Glow in the light of day
And cost you your life if lost

Fossils are prohibited from all lists
Only things from alien worlds will do

Love's never ending fuel
When love comes to stay at my temple
Reside and be Suprised! It will burn
Cleverly like coins in my back pocket
Love is cool,tempting, Showca$ing all the same
Let them have their day, escape/withdrawal
Love the never ending fuel, no exhaust needed

We seek, we...Read More

when the plant door closes: Part III
and you register with all the temp agencies that you can,
because there are no permanent jobs anymore---
there may have been when you started working at the plant,
but all those possibilities have dried up
with the rest of the well---

He wasn't such a bright kid,
big ideas filled his head...
my advice was always useless,
see him now in his madness!

He thought he was a genius,
flashing hundred dollars bills as fools, 
and spending money on silly things,
he didn't appreciate their worthiness.

And worst...Read More

Daily 39, Bring Back the Old Effort
Bring back the astute listeners
to old rooms with fireplace smoke.
Ears open and widening hope
Big ideas going for broke.

Bring back the wise travelers
with their wild gestures and bright eyes
Hearts scarred and penetrating scope
Stories flowing strewn with lies.

Bring back the faithful apprentice

Little moments; big ideas; grand schemes and flops!
Intimacies shared; secrets held; pennies saved in a box.
Friends laughing; enemies kept close; bills; brooms and Mops.
Every breath a different thing; a rose; a bird; or an Ox!
