Wind's rattling the window panes, storm's on its way,
Looks like there'll be a bit of rain,
Big black clouds in the sky today,
Wind's rattling the window panes.

Storm's set to ruin the best of the grain,
The harvest's not due till the end...Read More

From some old country
This is the oddest card game
With rules to make your hair stand on end
No use trying to make sense of it
Just accept that it’s the way it is
Don’t bother asking too many questions
They call it Clabiash quite...Read More

Mirror stares at me
I’ve waited for a lifetime
Waited for smile like an end rhyme

I’ve listened a lot
Listened to voices that made me hot

I’ve lost enough
lost hope and mostly peace

I’ve climbed so high
Climbed Mountains and skies

I’ve played games
Games and won none

I’ve cried much
Much to...Read More

Beware of those who smile too much

Then invite themselves when uninvited,

Who proffer that unwanted touch

Whose every move is unrequited.



You feel discomfort in their presence

Shadows hide behind their eyes,

Evil lurks within their essence

However hard they feign disguise.


Let your instinct lead the...Read More

Premium Member How Is It Goal In
Liverpool showed very early they have a goal 
How very cold? 
But the Londoners got off the couch 
And stood tall without a slouch 
They scored one really quick 
Giving the clock not much time to tick

Premium Member My Poor White Dress
Today I was walking barefooted, 
After a heavy thunderstorm had passed thru,
I was wearing a beautiful white cotton dress. 

I suddenly stumbled upon a puddle,
A beautiful muddy puddle, I was instantly
drawn to its diameter and mysterious depths.

The top of the...Read More

Dick And Jane
When playing games, Dick was the winner.
Loss after loss made Jane simmer.
But she settled down
when in joy she found
they would be stars in a reading primer.

Call Of Duty
Don't drop the Soap.
Don't step on the Roach.

But you will return as a Ghost.

One killed by a bomb, two from a gun,
The world stands outside of death's door,
With the looming...Read More

Ladies and gents, girls and guys,
This poem is a clever disguise.

It is promotion for my sister's show
That she started on Youtube, so let's give it a go!

She posts videos about all sorts of games,
Mario, Pokemon, all Nintendo names.

MY THREE SIBLINGS AND I
Blessed with God’s wondrous goodness

securing us well inside haven-dome

The world in my hands
The world in my hands

In the framework of a smartphone
The world is trapped
In a small vending machine
Despite not being a pet or a real person
Give and receive sorrow and joy day and night

In the framework of a smartphone
The world is...Read More

Premium Member Chilly Day At The Park


The sun came out but hid its heat;
While the wind remained at rest,
The chill kept moving about.

The array of trees—leafless
And leafy—stood as still as death;
Little children played mid-winter games.

Two old men sat at a park table;
Seriously they played their chess...Read More

Dancing Through the Years
These floors still hold echos
and they creak when I walk
and the room where you slept
still holds your every thought.
And I sit in my chair
in the room down the hall
remembering the laughter
in the pictures on the wall.

But you've gone and grown...Read More

Such grief my friend marsupial
Child from wonder born
Fractured in a moments time
No fragment left adorns

Moments burned so carelessly
Confusion wrought a bramble wood
Muddled through another day
When you could, you understood

Madness to persistent lies
Around a corner unabated
Slice of joy to top the...Read More

There’s a part of me that say’s I’m jealous
Another thinks my golfing friends just zealous,
Whilst I crave fresh air and healthy motion
They’re busy slathering on the lotion
Before they mount some little cart
That with intent they simply point to dart

Pitbull or Poodle
Guns blaze while bodies pile high
Somewhere you’d hope 
They’d be done with the lies
The ones that are talking
they don’t wear the vest
they’re just some more fodder
who hide with the rest
Don’t chain your soldiers
Those who hunt in the dark

The Fact(s)

It started with a poem. 
Penned in by mistake. 
Then it ended up in a letter, 
that later turned into an email. 
That was forwarded, 
not once but a thousand, 
and then ten million times. 

Then someone was asked,...Read More

Lazy
It's amazing how lazy people
make up excuses for themselves
it's never their fault 
when the work doesn't get done

The power of girls
lies in the back door of gossip
they gang up in teams
gossiping destroying reputations

but play the innocent when caught
it wasn't me

Premium Member Fragile Supremacy
Does it always feel good to be King?
Or Queen?
Diva?
PolyPathic Genius?
PolyPhonic Perfect Pitched Prophet?

White fragility,
like loneliness,
is the psychic
and economic
and disempowering risk we take

Each time and place
we consciously impress
subconsciously oppress
unconsciously suppress
anti-consciously repress
uneven 
over-invested white male privileged opportunities

To recognize history as polycultural systems
