Premium Member That Good Old Fashioned Brew

What would we do without our morning brew
It's our salvation when waking between me and you
Tea doesn't cut it
Orange juice unsuited
Only that good old fashioned brew will surely do

Premium Member The Great Space Wedding Compromise
My daughter's ideas strange as could be
A moonscape wedding demanded from me
Would Lunar sites open June twenty-three
I checked with NASA; it wasn't to be

What now? said my daughter, awash in tears
Reliving some of her very worst fears
Earthbound doesn't cut it,...Read More

Place Of Misery
Where were you when i needed you the most?
Where were you when I needed comfort from home?

Clearly it is desolate in it's bitter groans

Never shall I return to them,

Premium Member She may not act human
I treated this strange creature  with great care
I  knew she was not human, so unfair
She looked like my old cat before it died
Someone give her food,  make sure it’s fried

She could not mew nor bark nor did...Read More

Premium Member Solemn

As I walk alone, 
the path before me, 
long and full of pain, 
my thoughts are only on you. 
You went forward, 
when others ran or fell beside. 
You went into the fray, 
not afraid to pray, 
for your fellow...Read More

Premium Member What do your children see
I open a window and look out at the night.
I wonder when it was that we gave up the fight?
To ensure that the freedoms exist for every man.
No matter where his father came from.

Winter Parade
In a town in West Virginia,
The annual parade,
A holiday tradition,
Was to be differently portrayed.

For the brand-new mayor, wanting
To make all feel they belonged,
Changed the Christmas parade to Winter,
But most residents felt they’d be wronged.

It’s a sticky tricky topic
Coming up this...Read More

Knowledge, the giant tree
The shapeless mighty
None can see,
None can cut
Only can learn, acquire
by following previous wise someone
or contemplation on every part of nature

To this giant amorphous tree
Powerful its roots, trunks, crowns

The Boy is  three,  his sister, two

I can’t hear your water
Make it bigger 
The windows are colorful
Rainbow indigo
Like a pillow 
Because it’s colorful 
Why you say that  to me?
Why why why?

Premium Member Silliness

Silliness is what silliness does, an old proverb
I'm a professional, so don't challenge what I offer
That's really “prunkin”
You country bumpkin
Just don't cut it, my mind's quite awkward

Premium Member how to cut an abstract
a blind man once said
" saw doesn't cut it
eyes don't hammer on"

so he analogued 
and built a winding staircase...
that did continue

back to origins
as language...the idea
being of constructs

invisible shapes...
continued abstract sculpting
purely of the mind

Moved ,  but barely moving

Probably a little of chaste and a lot of mischief

So tiny but always runny like a hose
Very fragile i think...Read More

It’s always a brain span!

A Shadorma

Oh spectre
of the blackest ink,
satin shroud
ignorance begets terror
though you are a bird.

Poe’s penning
only adds darkness
to legends
greatest plight;
feared by those who believe myth,
unfounded tall tales.

Cailleach did
feast on men’s bodies
in disguise,
a raven,
her dark disguise projecting
into human eyes.

Totem for
the great Bran; guarded

I saw unpaid policies
A busted borehole
I saw my Mama die
And our broken cars
I saw them grabbing the land
And defrauding the will
I saw no money coming in
And the torture of our rabid dog
Saw him biting another getting rabies too
Saw him biting...Read More
