Croak Proof
Webbed lip toadies,
their tongues do  do stink of lies
As they leapfrog from excrement places
that do  do attract flies

Brown tongue toadies,
their sticky web of dysentery deceit
stinks of foul breath duplicity

For they do  do double dip in 
toilet ponds...Read More

Cat eyes
I wonder why
People use their bright black eyes
To glimpse the dim corner
Are they chief mourners?
If not...
why they keep crying on that mahogany desk?
Are they an actor of burlesque?
Or they only act as a deterrent 

Human-being is so...
Difficult to understand...Read More

Epaulets of schmaltzy eyes set to be so loose
Given a glass of rosewater, its perfect booze!

Regularly chichi, sometimes bltchy
Never mind, always kind, two-up for a Blanc.

What a fine frosty night

He dives himself and gets into his ice palace made of frozen memories.
Alike an iceberg, people only can see the tiny peak,
but from bottom to top the iceberg becomes a strong watchtower.

Palo Santo
The Wood That Smelt Good:
I adore your smoldering odor.
Your sniff makes my nostrils go gaga.
It's like someone threw a rose at my nose.
Whoops, got it too close too my face; now I've got a left ash-cheek.

That poor dear can't sing -
This place is a yawn - 
Fawning old cretins
With moustaches twirled,
Some narks on the fling - 
Are no real males born?
Sod-all since seven -
What's wrong with the world?!

A Weird woman
she pips in fear for lateness like her peers,

hauteur cloaked with reticence,

her-boo-boo-vague, though walled around and palpable

official Narcissist disguised in rude affronts

Bravado of naughtiness in candour yet tacit


“Free me to free me”, rants in melancholy

as  ignorance upsets sorts...Read More

Premium Member green hoods
black hoods have replaced white ones
but its the same old game
quieting tongues-intimidating
to get their way-the only way
burning cities cloaking hate...
swinging bats at ghosts
leaky boats without sails
drifting toward the edge
of flat earth minds..
one day the black hoods
will be wearing suits and...Read More

Horse Lovers Emergency
‘Quick’ I say, ‘
there is a catastrophe!’
‘We are head over heels obsessed,
can't you see?’

From morning to night, 
we ponder about them all day,
no matter what the conversation,
it surely swings that way.

Horses and ponies,
donkeys and mules,
some would say how silly,

Obsequious Odor

Brown nose,
head bowed low
Sniffing submissively so

Wag the sniveling tongue,
show the power privileged ones 
much servile love
Catch the prime scraps
tossed from your master’s table

Give a howl of gratitude,
back bent ... eyes to the floor
Do a lot of begging for a little...Read More

My contribution to saving the planet
I gave up my clothes drier,
For cleaner air.

I started a metal recycling scheme for my local church,
So as not to leave them in the lurch.

I dig most of my waste food into the garden,
And it now looks more like a...Read More

Bughuul Man
He’s the devil in your tormented dreams
The shadowy, nightmarish silhouette imp
of a thousand horror newscast,
who muzzles your petrified screams
Keeping those silent eyes
glued to the vile, video killing screen
Black Plague monstrosity figurine
showing you a million different exits
from the corporeal plane
