Premium Member Oliver, a Boy
When I was young my mother's hand
Led me through a joyful land
Where neither war nor hate exist
Nor something more I must resist 

Where nothing but the night is black
And black is never dark for lack
Of something bright or greater light
But...Read More

Of being in their Nascar cage

Premium Member Meanwhile back at the ranch
Visibility's dropped to near-zero
   Thermometer's plummeting too
Ocean tempest tossing and turning
   Spraying the nerves of the crew

Deck swabbed by torrential rain
   Passengers hunkered down below
Afternoon's slipped into deep shadows
   Danger's pulse glowers...Read More

Who jumped on a boat and then set sail
Away from the path he had trod

The wreck of a ship that I bought on a dare
Was ripe for a trip with a little repair

Popped in again here at the Soup

Aye, aye! Said the Captain, who spoke on his date,

The very first lady to say he was great!

Under a large ominous moon
Under a large ominous moon
A deadly storm begins to grow
The clouds show signs of a typhoon
Now the freebooters wildly row

As large waves smash into the ship
Under a large ominous moon
They fear that the galley may flip
Praying the storms end will...Read More

Premium Member THE DOVE
Dedicated to Robert Lindley. Warning this tale is dark.

THE DOVE

A bloody stain upon the sheets, how cruel!
Soulless weight of the wretched beast who’d rule.
With his bare paws and downward thrust he’d crush,
Rake over the virgin, ignore her blush.

Her pasty-skin, red...Read More

Tree Top Dancers
and Circus Clowns

The neighbors moved away. 
They said nothing to anyone, 
they just left. 
New people took the home. 
There was a big truck. 
It was full of boxes, 
and a TV. 

It was jam-packed with animals...
and cages...Read More

We patronize those ships
that traverse these oceans,
for they sustain a set schedule
and not as spontaneous as others. 
Their fixation of the seas proves their 
genuineness and the portal to our harbor, 
is easy to navigate. That revelation fixed the
mood for...Read More

Ken Mattingly is mad
about being cut from the Apollo 13 crew -
now no one will see his zero-gravity backflip
until a later time, by then no one will care.

ever since the Da Vinci Code

Tory Envy
I wish I was a Tory,
It would be another story,
So much simpler not to care
Or have to be aware
Of how other folks must strive
To make a crust to stay alive.
I could keep my privileged indifference
Surrounded by a picket fence
I wouldn't...Read More

Come, my pretty, and comb your hair;

And let not the heyday...Read More

The general knocked, polite to the core.
May we please come in? He did implore.

Yesterday at a restaurant with family…during our talking, laughing…eating
one again I realized how every moment’s fleeting.

A story is told, we laugh but that story’s laughter does not last
because another story takes its place and it slips into the past.

What's new with me...Matthew?

Well for starters Nationwide
road service emergency
one man cutting crew

exactly why no juice (think electricity),
his hunch found trunk light kept lit,

ACE Monster Within
Blackness occupied blackness.
Like it was the world.
Yet there was more.

A chink of light.
As bright as creation.
It grew till it had form.
A line that grew into a rectangle.
Bright as life.

Bigger and bigger till things could be seen.
Banished blackness.
Replaced by light.
Daylight.

The opening...Read More
