Premium Member DELUGE
In harmony with Nature
he grew, he thrived, he learnt.
Greed: he found plenty to take
as Planet Earth belonged to him,
to plunder at his will.

Big-shot, major predator.
Pumped up with pride of possession.
Devoid of core spirit.
Mother Nature no longer needed
for he had dominion.

The Werewolf Banditos, Part IV
IV.

As the werewolves all funneled to that narrow gorge,
the brush was pulled away, revealing a cannon’s bore,
the beasts were to furious to see they were caught,
Bob pulled back on the cord, fired silver grape-shot.

Small spheres of silver shot out like...Read More

Paper Gangster
I can't handle pretenders.
Something someone is not.
No 'spect for a paper gangster.
Living a fake life until caught.

A lawyer watching Son's of Anarchy.
Blue jeans with vest, will be looking phat.
Uber delivers him to a Harley shop,
wearing golf pants and Fedora hat.

Love's child, reconcile

You're So Bourgeois


You’re so bourgeois,
it ain’t materialistically funny
You’re so smug, lady LaDeda — 
you’re a maven for making money
Always turning your nose up,
and looking down 
at poor, working class people
Thinking you’re better than most everyone else 
because of what you got
You’re so...Read More

Hard Act To Follow
H-ard act to follow, 
A-n exceptional lady wins; 
K-now her secret to success, 
I-t's her hope that begins. 
M-ore good lessons to learn from her superior skill;

Deputy Do Wrong
The deputy of this small town
enjoys flashing his police car lights

Like a one car parade on Easter Sunday
He loves Boss hogging people around;

who only has the...Read More

T’was Robin Banks, that set her heart a throbbin’, a needy chap who drove the wheels,  alias reliant Robin.

Premium Member You are Nothing --- As Am I
I used to think poetry was about expression
(but some it seems would rather make it a competition)
I used to think beautiful words were meant to encourage growth,
not be used as a pedestal for your ego.

Kimsey Lake
Standing on the shore of Kimsey Lake,
Watching as each boat circled out in front
They'd cast my way and fish by fish they'd take,
Witnessing this time and time again, I hardly appreciated their stunt

I yelled, "Quit stealing my fish,

Perhaps something inside me
Fell of the shelf

Chased that so much 
Didn’t even know how to please me
