The Manipulator
Some ghost in peoples mind need to control,
every aspect of circumstance to enroll.
The raging spirit in constant demand to chase illusion,
with sweet words, drama and phony conclusion.
The fear of not being in charge by all means,

The Zombies of Zander Ranch, Part III
III.
There must be a hundred, silent and cruel,
a slow-moving wave as the night grew cool,
Rose had a shotgun, to blast out her hate,
yet Sol remained steady, motioned her to wait.

He didn’t shoot, he had planned out this trick,
just drew a...Read More

The Zombies of Zander Ranch, Part II
II.
They were locked inside, surrounded by moans,
the pained cries of Hell enveloped the home,
the rancher too broken to even speak,
while Rose went and got Sol something to eat.

Sol went to work, and found a heavy chest,
pushed it to the door...Read More

The Zombies of Zander Ranch, Part I
I.
Sol stared down the empty trail before him,
looking to see what waited in the dim,
the Zander Ranch was the place from the note,
they’d written of evils born beyond hope.

So Sol approached atop his sturdy horse,
wondering if the scourge would break...Read More

364 was especially hard to deal with today. 
The worker made a check in the empty box. 
She used red ink.

Welcome to Trump Land
I name call.  Berate.
Manipulate.  Dictate.
Pressure.  Bully.  Fabricate.
Endlessly lie and discriminate.
Accost.  Harass.  Intimidate.
Cackle loud as I Twitter hate.
How else will I dominate?

Me, myself and I (The Great),
Expressly wish to control your fate.

Curriculum vita in a perfect suit for the over emphasized job,
overwritten obituaries by all means towards the career to the top.
Artificial titles painting in phrase the landscape of the desire,
everybody loves a piece of paper with their name to admire.

On Pendulums And Rocking Horses History Is Made
While racing on the rocking horse of youth
Going nowhere closer to the sun or faster there 
When swinging pendulums from Democrat to Republican 
Age picks up the pace, in speed it keeps us in our place
Remains the same with nothing...Read More

Premium Member A Nation Betrayed
With loving heart and caring hands
I soothe your pain, I bathe your wounds
An ill wind blew and sapped your strength
There was not much that you could do.
Corruption, greed, no rule of law,
Unfair the treatment handed out.
Betrayed by those you trusted...Read More

Homeless
The rain falls gently making no splashes
The wind is absent today.
Safe indoors I look out and know many
Seek bus shelters, and they have no home.

Paris is an ugly city, expensive and dirty
Their subways stink of unwashed people.

Pandora's Box
Pandora’s Box


Prometheus was condemned to a fate,
With his liver used as bait. 
He stole the fire from Zeus,
Feeling sorry for mans abuse.
He was caught,
And his binding ropes were taut.

Hephaistos was instructed to make Pandora,
Who radiated a beautiful aura.
She was given...Read More

Through the Black Hole
I used to love how it all felt,
Corrupting every Satelite
Until they all fell.
Now I hear the whispers through the night.

They're telling me to let go,
Of humanity still left in me,
So now I only see my ghost,
Still missing the remedy.

How lovely...Read More

Linger not on things but on life

Why wake each morn, to a world in denial? 
To its hapless, vain, impartial morals. 
Where white men, in fancy collar, mistrial
worries of the poor for mindless quarrels.

Alas, plastic, carbon, tear up vast plains, 
replacing life's nature for mundane trash....Read More

Mother Nature's Early Menopause

We forced her into menopause way before her time 
Prematurely Mother Nature’s in menopause
and we’ll regret of our crime.
We cut off her tresses that once bushed across her land 
Polluted her oceans and soiled her golden sand.
Moody and unpredictable her...Read More

Our World

"Once upon a time,
I was falling in love.
But now I’m only falling apart,
Nothing I can do.
A total eclipse of the heart."

Foolish sayings,
That’s what we follow.
Believe our zodiac horoscopes,
Follow them blindly.
Entranced by pretty words,
All of which are lies.

I will never give in, 

To you,

I eat words of truth,

I have my teeth in it,

Never will I quit,

Justice, 

Is what comes due,

You can't hide, 

Behind your lying lips,

Not everyone, 

Is willing, 

To be taken,

It's true,

Like fruit
upon tree branches
Like a caged bird

The Angel in Hell
An orchestra of silence,
engulfed by the clever dark, 
a blood-bath of violence, 
triggered by a black remark.

A shadow in a cage,
slave to the devil's task,
a burning flame of rage,
concealed behind a mask.

Abandoning humanity,
and the cruel light of day,
his soul of pure insanity,
