About Trump are things we must mention;
Definitely has been big bone of contention,
And nibbled at,
A dumb doormat,
While many problems exist with retention.

Trump Big Bone of Contention
Trump Big Bone of Contention

Trump was big bone of contention;
Smart Aleck at political convention;
Much  disdain;
Constant pain;
In ranks raised so much dissension.

I heard someone say that they don’t like poetry,
I hope they don’t close their mind
Just as I, with any prose, like to wait and see,
Hope I will continue and find
That the words I read are the words I need
To express...Read More

Empty is the Pot
Put on the water,
and boil it real, real hot
Sprinkle in a dash of salt of deprivation,
then put in a hefty portion of whatnot
A generic brand of anything of no substance;
meat substandard,
having zero nutritional value
Seething through and through
the bone of contention
Waste...Read More

The Dotted Semibreve
When you get to the king’s palace
My brother
Whenever you get the chance to sit and dine with the king
Do not raise your shoulders so high,
So high above the level of your head
Do not ask him for too many favors
Do not...Read More

Mirror Image-a body of works contest


has always been a bone of contention 
the way your eye lashes skim your face
are they your own or an acquired invention 
no sign of an embarrassed blush can I trace

your teeth are like pearls
very old ones that have yellowed...Read More

Independence day-15 August
 Impressions of a teenager

I was born today twenty years ago
A healthy child with eyes of a doe
I grew up in a free world
Saw the national flag unfurled

Sang national anthem with devotion
A hand on my heart and no motion
It stirred...Read More

Hillary Over Trump Any Day
Trump Absolutely No Good

Only few poets read Trump poems I wrote
So more time to Hillary I should devote
Maybe missed and can't find bone of contention
Democrats did have best political convention.

Trump sure seems to sing same old song
Many things about America...Read More

In A Deep Forest

In a deep forest I did find myself lost
Trying to cool temper with some frost
Then went to sleep off into oblivion
And now am a North Carolina Bolivian.

Is amazing how Bolivia got its name
On sacks was identical and...Read More

Jack's a nickname, my real name's Charles
Guess I've got some 'splaining to do
My sisters and Mom wanted “Jack Norman”

HOSTILE HEAD TAKEOVER PART 1
I'm near cuckoo
This Monday blue
A day not eas'ly recommended
for making sense
I'm way too tense
And hung-over to comprehend it
 
My mind's on the bend

are threatening to abandon en masse
I was perfectly sane
till they pissed in my brain
negotiations are at...Read More

ANOTHER PAINFUL CRY
Another tsunami for the warm heart
Another heart-rending chapter
After saying bye to her ill-fated dictator
After years and years of tribulations

The 1890 treaty has been invalidated
The obvious has become hazy
For our longtime neighbors
Unfortunately have become greedy

We the down-trodden watch innocently
Unaware of what...Read More

with own shadow to tag along
thinking no one will walk with you
never let anyone, a chance to be with you.

I'm on the same road like you
looking for someone, and life too
empty heart,...Read More
