you stab him in the back.
Remember to look deep in his eyes as his

you are so self-centric
full of yourself
like we should worship you
we don't matter to you
only your wishes and aims

not caring if we love or hate you
you're oblivious to us

To Be A Man
Dressed in a black suit
In fancy black loafers
In snazzy black dress pants
With a little handkerchief in my coat pocket
With my hair slicked back nice and neat
With my mouth in a wide fake smile
You'll find one thing not pretty and shiny

History Brought Us Here
The people we are,
Comes from the people then.
How each kind came so far,
Between those who loses an those who wins.

From those who took suffering to heart,
Who stood up for the rights,
How they were willing to fight,
How they kept it going...Read More

Blood, sweat and tears, in exchange for notes.
Improve your situation, or have a smoke.
Try to relax your bad back at home.
Yesterday is already lost to ‘where did it all go?’

I lost the whole week and all I feel is...Read More

Aging Right is a Long Hard Fight
Through countless miles we walk alone

from cradle down to dust,

with friends and loved ones near and far

to honor, love and trust.   

Step by step we trod this world

North, south, east and west,

Searching for our one true self,

To feel whole, complete and...Read More

Why in the world do you bother?  I’ll never be your Prince.

Beyond our lives of blood, sweat and tears

Premium Member An Allegory To Free At Last

An anchored statue
can no longer be a metaphor
for liberty;
like-wise neither can unbalanced scales
be a matching simile for justice—
and a cracked bell
whose sound has been eviscerated
will never ring out freedom.

Broken chains
dangling from the wrist cuffs 
of outstretched hands
do not symbolize liberation;

Galvanized With Steely Mettle
Countless instances submitting poems

quite a hefty collection of rejections,
the responses lacking
disappointing voluminous vicious
venomous vitriolic backing

unsuccessful at hijacking

The Centenary
Covered in mud, blood, sweat and tears.
Lads so very young in years.
Some so young they shouldn’t have been.

Let alone fighting in the trenches surrounded by death.
Watching comrades draw their last breath.

When your idols are fragile
Is it any wonder kids lack style
Perhaps if we walked a mile
In the shoes of the soldier we'd attain guile

The government is a caper
And everything will taper
Due to greed and paper
