As The World Slowly Floats By.

On the back of the turtle, the world does roam.
Twisting and turning through a galaxy unknown.
How far will it go?
Only time will show.
It is one of those things that we will never know!

Bass Man
Written By:  D. Collins 9/20/19

I'm just ripping and scripting all of this out.
Imagining if I was out there in the crowd.
This poem is written with a little "Bootsy" in it.
A baseline that turns it into a clinic.

In the grand scheme of things I am inconsequential,
A cog or a lever though nothing essential,
Not too clever nor bright but not stupid or mental,
With a comfortable life if in parts uneventful.

With the lack of a purpose or some grand...Read More

Premium Member Freaky Little Flea
He is a freaky little flea.
Dancing between Jim and me.
Making romance hard to be
I shake his foot as you can see.

He laughs crazy, this little flea.
We can’t get close says my husband Lee.
He follows us, living on a knee.
How irritating...Read More

Premium Member I'M THE MAN FOR THE JOB - In Trump's own words
My head’s in a swirl
So much on my plate
But I’ll give this a whirl,
To prove I’m so great.

No need to read up
On subjects galore,
Like tea from a cup
I can always drink more.

The world’s not so hard
To figure it out,

It pounced upon my tender skin
With a happy hop in the lightest touch
My heart skipped three beats
Stress! My brain yelled.
STRESS! STRESS! Alerting every cell.

Knowing it was a flea or a gnat.
Or a teeny leprechaun with a...Read More

The Pavement Beneath Me
There's no turning back from where I stand, 
There's only mud, (and)blood, and ash, 
From the destruction, that erupted from the last ones heart,
Now the pain is perpetual at last, 
Do flea from me all feelings of guilt,

They hunted with valor and hope
They proceeded with a dose of good Knightly sass
They chased it with tackle and rope

Flea on my dug.
Digging the flip out.
It was ought the sweat.
Caught around my face.

How can I regret it.
The taste felt on my ears.
My eyes wept to hear.
Can't oppose my senses.
Insanity is alive.

Count the days.
Months passed
Basics common in court.

A gnat is bigger

than a flea, but smaller still

than a bigger sort of bee,

until one day they

all came and sat on the screen

and then I stood up and SLAPPED!

A path I never towed
A path I never towed
Has no trace of my foot print
Only those that destiny bid me
I have walked and paid my fee.

That can lift a man
Towards that path he dreads
And circumstances push him
Towards it for his daily...Read More

Gishs Wish
My goldfish Gish, made a wish
he wished to be a “dishy” fish.
He wanted so to gorgeous be; 
he is more colorful than a flea.

And so, I bought him a tiny mirror
so he could see that he was in error.

Scares me,it's horrid - brought me...Read More
