Pootie Mac

Little fella got a big gas tank

If Pootie roll on by,
and you down low try 
to pump a fake cry
Mac gonna give a mean honk

A huge sphincter toot,
that’s gut fuel premium rank

First sonnet

Let Truth Burn Away Your Deceptive Cloak

Let truth burn away your deceptive cloak
lower vanity's shield, go have a smoke,
even if, a diamond, in love's gold crown
life shows greater rise, after falling down!

In vanity's false, self-proclaimed state
live many victims...Read More

Are Socialists Human Beings
Are socialists human beings?
Do they need food?
Are they capable of goodness?
Do they deserve to be tortured, starved, abandoned, beaten?
What makes a socialist cry?
It isn't sad movies -- or is it?

Why should I stop hating them?
I have the right to punish...Read More

The buildings stood there, the smoke billowed high into the air
Families watched on tv, frustration and fear is what they shared
Many ran down the street, fearing for their life
Children watched in disbelief, husbands hugged their...Read More

Flowers in the Sand
Time’s like water – it runs through your hands 
Before you know it, you’re an old man
Don’t be one to question how you lived out life’s demands
While missing the flowers in the sand

Tell her that you love her
Don’t let another...Read More

Trudging on a path deep in a forest 
with the noise of loneliness humdrum in the ears 
Felt the thoughts to be slowing down
as if were on the edge of sleep.
In the quest of searching for one who cares
I hug...Read More

Author Dana Redricks

Abandoned! Assaulting winds thrash flailing limbs, 
denuding boughs of golden dress;
gone the gaiety of glowing beginnings
when springtime sun seduced soft soil,
fondling slight buds of green, foreplay in fecund fields.

Forlorn, like a vacant house,
dark windows blankly stare despair,
the fissured dream convulses;
Whistling...Read More

Choir Great Music Made
Choir Great Music Made

Together choir great music made,
While Jesus in His cradle had laid;
Animals in a flock,
Along with live stock,
And went to barn where he stayed.

Star can clearly be seen in the sky,
After being there it would pass by;

All those...Read More

Guilty I voiced my plea
Whilst the fishies looked at me
There he stood-pleased and grinning;
Disregard of what was sinning

Guilty I yelled again;
Affirmation for the man
My heart you stole for I stole yours;
Exchange of hearts with distant shores…

The tide rolled in and...Read More

A Smile
A smile is supposed to be real, not fake
But instead, people think that they can just take
Even when someone takes their life, just with the hold of a very sharp knife
Once you start bleeding, you'll soon be needing
A hug from...Read More

Life derailed
While trying to live life to the full
Unaware of the dangers attached
Attired in vices to suit self best
Masked in virtues for human respect
Only to know that it stales fast.
As conscience stirs us upside down.

The journey towards the mature world
Enroute path...Read More

Your personal touch
Technology advanced, men losing reins
Identity fast fading,in our shrinking globe
Faster than we gain speed and control
We write in fonts some one designed.

A fulfillment as I hear the postman’s bell
As the waiting...Read More

Whoopee he's almost 3
When he was two
they said they were through
since he was all 
that they could stand.
Cry and rant, soil his pants,
there was nothing they could do.

They prayed for the day
when he'd go away
and leave them to their peace.
But that day was far...Read More

My Flower Love

Sifting through your features to find flowers -
I find a bright flower that never dies
And I could watch it grow in peace for hours.
What will I sacrifice to see this bloom

I found a bargain at the smart-phone store

Nothing's worse than a needle in your eye
Cringing is unavoidable as I try not to cry
Open them up

A sacred Sin
Love is sacred and sublime
owned by the angels once, 
But as descended to us men
It lost its grace as hatred born.

Man born with a greed to own,
Nothing he has,than a scar on
That's the death mark of Cain.
The smell of the...Read More

You Changed My Past and Future
My hearts beating, fastly thumping
Inside my emotions jumping
From tears to joy happy and glee

Making me cry tears of joy
Happy that you are my boy
Gleeful I am not alone
All the love that you have shown
