13 Years The End
The end 
It took along time to make sense of it, 
runaway problems sitting duck intensive,
the life it sucked,

while no one would do what right,

so long ago belief
doubtings sniped from
crannies, nook crevices,
duck and cover under desks
not just school exercise
of futility, life walk too
was never an unchallenged 

bathed midst forgotten
legacies, nary one tested,
self rooted desires abridged
till seething panic burst
soul quivering visions
into riotous dances tracing

Brave bird, soaring overhead yonder

like the winter bird
often longing to be heard
I await the sounds
I await the sounds
of the deep swallows calling
robins and duck fly
on their way southward
winter winds comes it's now cold
now flow where it's warm

The Close

I count the sparrows at my feeder,
watch them come and go.
The birds are a happenstance,
they flicker in and out, die and return,
but they themselves stay the same,
only their number records a difference,
creates a clock for the sun.
I sup my tea.

Since the temperature will be
Apparently extremely high,
A super-sun up in the sky,

We will feel in no condition

Kangaroo Court
A donkey and an elephant in a kangaroo court.
Are turning the zookeepers into a political sport.
The zookeepers are in a frustrated rage.
By the donkey's fabricated stage.
They seem to be down on their luck.

A hen's a chicken, not a duck
   And can she ever cluck...
