Diligently Designed
Constantly Cherished

Coming Out
Fluttering Blue Banners
Pink & White long behind
Hidden under the tiles, an adder
Teeth sharp as rock we’ll surely find

Large smiles and new energy
So young blooms breathe fresh air
Into lungs defeated by entropy
Feeding grins once diminished by a glare

How music lulls us...Read More

The Journey
Lyrical lines seem to lack the ability to keep my thoughts align to my heart
Nevertheless, to my one true love I write

I searched all life till God bring...Read More

Premium Member Intellectual Snobbery
When I was in grade school
I was, already, 
on my leftbrain dominant path
toward acting the intellectual snob.

This, in large part
my best offense,
my trump card, sadly,
against marginalizing prejudice
of our community's non-farmer economic
and political Elite;

The few kids
whose parents went to college
and/or inherited...Read More

Beau and a Belle
Some things you don’t know ... 
and you don’t really wanna

Certain information overload
can get tricky
Make you not trust your own eyes
Sometimes custom pants
might be a fancy dress in disguise

Better stay sober;
even still, it might be hard to tell
if that beau...Read More

Going Down In Dark
When the sun goes down and dark
A lizard takes his time to meditate
It could just as easily be a female
But who am I to judge or take a look
I respect other creatures rights to privacy

When the lizard decides to sleep...Read More

Sew What
My new quilting teacher’s a guy
Which proves why you cannot get by
With presuming you know
Just which person will show
If the course list does not specify.

He’s delightful and knows all his stuff
And his skills appear quite up to snuff.
In his class...Read More

Gender of Spender and Sender
Gender of Spender and Address of Sender

Were guaranteed what would be gender,
Of person who had been a big spender;
Name of game;
Both the same,
As address of wife who was the sender.

Political Correctness
Has the world gone completely mad
All the words we've been using
Are quickly changing, it's so sad
I am a woman 
Feminine as can be
I still call a spade a spade
And a she a she
It does not offend me
Or cause me any...Read More

Firstly, it's a manufactured word to suit
the gay community - I'm not impressed;
let's say fifty one per cent are against,
forty five per cent are just not bothered.

I make no apology, my entitlement,
some friends I have are gay, no big deal,
although...Read More

Help me get through this, Mr. Therapist,

Learned knowledge doesn’t
Doesn’t replace the truth accumulated
During a lifetime.
Everything you learned at school,
The certainty you had, falls on the wayside.

Explain why it happens, if they do
It is mostly some nonsense that suits...Read More
