Premium Member Empowering Integrity
Verbal microaggressions
[You are a liar!]
neglect non-violent humanity
as macroaggressions
[uninvited explosions with intent to kill],
rather far beyond verbal bullying,
physically retaliate against abusive inhumanity,
seldom too fastidious
about recognizing collateral damage
to people
planet Earth.

Critical mistrust
[how does this defend democracy?]
may yet remain mindful of Golden Rules,
active hope...Read More

Premium Member This Vagrant Lust
Hell's music taunts his hooded lie
Condemns his fingers fretful glee
This vagrant lust that will not die
Nor feed his longing to be free

Cold tremor of long deadened strings
Hell's music taunts his hooded lie
Refutes the truths to which he clings
His voice an...Read More

The Dung Beetles Taste

The dung beetle’s disgusting taste
for other creatures fecal waste

Premium Member A Poem For Christmas NIght
Greeted by the multi-lit display
draped over the hedges
and the railing of our front porch,
the brilliant lit Christmas tree
winks at us, welcoming us home
from the Christmas Eve Mass.

You settle comfortably in your chair
as I walk into the dining room.
Sitting down, I...Read More

Blood thirsty carnivore that does not back down
On this ridge day and night, I sit and lie in wait
Hungry as the beast of my soul lies inside my chest

Gods Anger Not Just The Church
If I was God 
I'd be angry with the world
I tried to teach the Romans

Instead, the Romans
taught the world how to build empires
The Roman taught the world
how to take over countries

and charge then a tribute
call it a tax, call it...Read More

I stand amidst the crowd listening to them talking very loud
I stand amidst the crowd watching them walking about
I really don’t feel like talking so I moved away from them
And listen to my silent thoughts as they thunder from heaven

It's Magic
We all need a little magic
Magic and intrigue
Can be sad or tragic
Imagination can feed

When a clever magician
Pulls a rabbit from a hat
Everyone laughs and claps
Nothing can be wrong with that

Then, dressed very smartly
In his evening dress
The conjuror pulls out some...Read More

Ralph lived on an island
Isolated and remote
His only companion was Gertrude, the goat
He didn't have many possessions
There wasn't the need
As long as he had a roof over his head
And enough food to feed
Himself and of course the goat
I forgot to...Read More

Perhaps people will argue with me
saying that's your interpretation
But I did not write the bible
Thou shalt not kill

we should not kill anyone
I don't know how you can
interpret it any other way

It did not say

Who was looking for a bite 
And there was a seashore town 
That had smiles instead of a frown

With wind surfing racing 

It took a whole year of...Read More

The Gatherer and the Giver sat atop a hill to gaze again

You Have a choice
The battle between Rich and poor

better wages, holidays, life
the negotiation unions

Perhaps 5% unemployed 
is the desire of Rich people
having 5%...Read More

Scruple's Flaws
Tamerlane verse (Edgar Allen Poe)

As windows on this world get stuck;
disgust demands space on the lip.
Events I have not thought about
reveal hatred, make me upchuck
and fills untrusting minds with doubt.
Men’s base unkindness gets a grip
attacking vision with its whip.
When insult...Read More

Broken Glass
We drink to Life. L'chaim. Summer smiles
In Leah's eyes, June sunlight gently glowing.
The glass waits on the earth, bowl, base, and stem 
Remembering. Then, shards beneath 
My foot. Then, Mazel tov, the guests all cry. 
God send you many sons....Read More
