An aging streetwalker, she
   A hell-and-damnation preacher, he
      Met at death's door, unexpectedly

His life she saved, as hers expired

Evil deeds now seen,
cast deep underground.
Anguishing screams,
now heard all around.

Lament doth bring,
more shame to behold.
Thou shalt not kill,
beware of what's been told.

Many will judge,
and make lite of their sin.
But God knows all,
he can see where you've been.

You cannot hide,
nor can...Read More

Always You
Sitting on the sidelines,
Cheering all alone.
Never took advantage,
Of throwing the first stone.
Your love had never ceased,
Though errors were repeated.
You strengthened all Your efforts,
When mine were all depleted.
When most would walk away,
You held me with good grip.
When all my purpose lost,

PERCHANCE, pure ignorance led me to thine fate, 
this insensitive cast of shadowed ills, 
master of melancholy, 
captain of misery,
pukes wormed to,
fester my sole.

WROUGHT, I to thine chambered bed of tear-filled filth,
thy soulless disposition of dogged bitten maladies,

[Mocking song]

Everything na double double

Everything na double double

Know that you are in the doubler’s den
For you shall soon understand
That the peace you seek
Is about to bring more damnation.

The March
The cadavers of Solomon’s time wander the promise land,
Once thriving and green; now covered up in sand.
Their souls are blacker than a starless night;
Empty husks stumbling in search of the light.
They search for the waters that have long since dried.

Capitalism Unchecked
You wear virtue on your sleeve
But you often wear nothing at all
Showing scars of thousands of years
When corrupt leaders beat you
But they could never kill you
So you survived the centuries
You masquerade as a maryr 
To the displaced masses
You offer the...Read More

Madonna's Legacy
Heavenly Mother,
How could you bear to lose your son?
I weep reliving your agony.
Born from anxiety and despair, beneath
My stomach the babe which the State
Will judge and find guilty.
To shackle, beat, enslave, and murder against
My motherly will.

Beginning with you, beloved Mother,
Inherited...Read More

Ghost of Harriet Harris doth not countenance monetary largesse
After about fifty years as married wife
the last three fraught with strife
obvious telltale signs of terminal illness rife

Caverns with corners and nine maligned sides
Consequences glistening 
A purple hue undulating throughout dark blue ;

Hanging from a central cone
The witches thong moves eerily.......wrong 
Thickening a sickening pong
Stirring up the need to vomit
Expel all that consumes dense little rooms ;

I see their ghosts ...
Dancing before me like madmen
Like moon-daubed scarecrows of the corn
Hurling curses like daggers
(Righteous retribution)

I see their eyes ...
The gleams change to glaze
With every considerate nuzzle of the trigger
Recoil punching my shoulder
(Yin to a horrid yang)

Alien Nation
Alien Nation
by Michael R. Burch

(for J. S. S., a "Christian" poet)

On a lonely outpost on Mars
the astronaut practices “speech”
as alien to primates below
as mute stars winking high, out of reach.
And his words fall as bright and as chill
as ice...Read More

What Life Is
What if damnation is reincarnation 
as a person people stray from,
not expression of anger or frustration 
yet state our character stays in.

Born to be people whom never succeed, 
prone to pain or addictive needs, 
and rather than Hell we live...Read More

What is it like to be dead?

Does anyone know the answer?
What is it like to be dead?
Something so hard to imagine,
Fills my existence with dread.

Infinite time of unconsciousness,
Like a Coma with no release.
Is it a thoughtless black void?

Creation's Holy Spirit
Just because I create does not mean I feel I’m God!
That’s an atrocity of men, who wish to be in charge
Not women, who for ages have seethed beneath
the accusations of men accusing Eve, tempted by a snake
so magical, it talks!...Read More

There's Satisfaction In Jesus
You’ll Only Find Satisfaction In Jesus!

Do they ever think about their spirituality?

This is common with all women and men.

It’s a corruption since the beginning of time.
