Deceived and Relieved

I knew it would end in tears.
The trouble is: I never cry.
You’ve realised all my fears.
And I didn’t blink an eye.

I knew where I stood, so goodbye.
Run away from every painful fact,
Back to momma, I won’t die.
I found...Read More

The Intelligence Of Tuna
There where the tuna sleep mighty
Wet as usual imprisoned in ocean
There are creatures above with poles
The oxygen nitrogen breathers 
The ones with limbs on their sides
With eyes facing front fashioned to hunt
Beings that live in the thin environment
Trying to take...Read More

Seriously?


Give me a break! I am not that gullible!
What's this baloney you're trying to feed me?
Most ridiculous story I ever heard!
Do you truly think I was born yesterday?

The Ladies Room
Cloistered within the restroom stall
eavesdropping on my peers
soft whispers echo off tiled walls
revealing secrets, hidden tears

Somehow this restroom has become
a sordid confessional booth
a place of refuge, safe for some
to air their inner truth

Co-workers cluster, confiding things
they wouldn't want the boss...Read More

My Child
There sit my sweet child as
he was born yesterday.
The bonding between a mother
and her child
through 9 months
inside of a mother's womb
was an incredible and 
precious feeling

I remember the first day he 
came into this world with many
emotional joy and tears...Read More

your best shot
all these comments and none that matter

not born yesterday, or hidden from thee

I never talk to strangers anyways.

Stop me if you've heard this one.
I feel as though we've met before.
Perhaps I am mistaken
but it's just that I remind you 
of someone you used to care about
But that was long ago.

Do you think...Read More

Premium Member Same Ol' Song and Dance
As I look back across more musical times
of rhythmic reflections,
ceremonies and commemorations
of each dawn and dusk eremitic liturgy,
if that is not an oxymoron
of sound and sight,
song and dance,
tragically sad, yet also bilaterally bound with happier chance 
of liturgical comedies

A Baby of the Nation
A baby of the nation;
Infant child,
Born yesterday,
Raised the other day,
Educated the day before,
And buried last month.

A baby of the nation;
Stripped of nationality,
Even before clothing it,
Thrown and disposed,
Even before its making.

Now i can't walk,
I can't even go to work,
Without extra paper;
I...Read More

A no brainer
that fought like sin,
Too much aggro
for want of snogging,
Lay in a fix of drugs
in shooting gallery,
Wearing the best of

Became a crapshoot,
a bunny rabbit
that wore long johns,
Wandered in main drag
with ghetto blaster,

He is "half a bubble off of centre"
More than "A few bricks short of a load"
He is not a Prince worth kissing
He is more of an ugly toad.

A veritable "Mountain of a man"
