Jungle Orchestra
Music dissolved all enmity, 
Annulled natural chemistry, 
All regardless of consortia,
Came to hear the jungle orchestra. 

Maestro King Lion got all in tune,
Baboon was superb on the bassoon,
Four parrots made a splendid quartet,
Chimpanzee dazzling on clarinet.

Tiger gifted on piano keys,
Ivory’s...Read More

From back streets, alleys and hedgerows they came,
all sorts of people with children and dogs
filling the Chapel like a hall of fame;

When I shall be planted, never to stir

mammoth misophonia
like monarch butterflies

he’s hard of hearing ~
resolved to turn sound up

nails on chalkboard
multiplicity of bongo drums

she hears everything
the clink clink of

spoon against bowl
the chomp chomp

of each major bite
piercing the night

this acute butterfly
must flee or fight

1. Betrayal builds up with great energy
winning my man
comes with a heavy bill of cost.
The third, trying to make us two unhitched
brings out thunderous evil from a Timpani
coveting from a loved one
makes her a dipsomaniac
and not even the threat of...Read More

Got to get that cheese pronto

Those that talked guano

Got hit with an uppercut combo

mano a mano

I had a dog named Bronco

And landlords named Helga and Poncho

Knew this lady that lived in a condo

And worked at Costco


Being shipped worldwide, even garbanzo

Twirling into the wind
Steps moving to a pace
Hips swinging to the beat
Ears Feeling the Timbre
The tune to a melody
Its base a Bongo
Shaking to a Maraca
Accents to a Trombone

So she follows gliding
Rhyming with all shes got

Young Jesi Naomi channeling Trish Roland

American Haikus

the moon falls west-ward
the tule fog saunters east
summer ends early

There was a contest to see who can invite,
The most guests to come to the hall.

My dad invited the whole family,
All the gals...Read More

Beauty Not A Beast

We’re same in brains and talent like a likely curse.

Competition is obvious like we all want to kill.

Shara's Christmas Journey
Lust of the flesh is sin.
Sin is lust of the flesh.
Try repeating this one once.
What word was miss-pronounced?
Hearing is believing.
With fellowship and greeting.
Duffing our sacred billow caps.
To gifts of public speaking.
Thin ones borrow.
Plump ones lend.
Relieved, believed, we sing along in...Read More

The cow was playing cowbells,
Giddy Goat joined in on his guitar,
The horse was hoofing bongo drums.
Animals started coming from afar.

Pig was oinking right in time,
Duck was tinkling on her triangle
While dog was hammering on his...Read More
