The tech is getting better 
But everything else.........

Everything else is kinda sad
And if it isn’t sad....... it’s mad
Plastic or tragic 
A toxic avalanche of things gone bad
Even kisses.......

Everything else is like a filthy pedestrian underpass 
With half the lights out

Jungle Orchestra
Music dissolved all enmity, 
Annulled natural chemistry, 
All regardless of consortia,
Came to hear the jungle orchestra. 

Maestro King Lion got all in tune,
Baboon was superb on the bassoon,
Four parrots made a splendid quartet,
Chimpanzee dazzling on clarinet.

Tiger gifted on piano keys,
Ivory’s...Read More

The hyena
Is like a hyena
Quiet n reserved
Plotting it's next move
It's prey oblivious. 
It's quickened pace
And ugly face
That never seems to smile...Read More

Premium Member Where are Your Guns
Where are your holsters?
I don’t have any.
Where do you keep your guns?
I don’t have any.
What is wrong with you?
Lots of things.
He gives me a smirk.

Seconds later….
Do you have knives?
This is asked hopefully.
Where are they?

Blue Waterways
Blue waterfalls run cold
in silvery moonlight’s beams;
a deer drinks river water;
cooled and refreshed,
leaps into the black forest.

Blue waterways run wild
like, hyena across the panorama
of scrub and brush;
kissed by African moonbeams.

Blue rivers are a magic elixir,
stirring the imagination
and tranquilizing the senses;

The hyena
Guess my reputation could be sweeter, but hey-
At least I'm not a skunk!
Rumour has it that we hyenas are backbiting scroungers-
 I like to call it being environmentally friendly;
No waste when I'm around, I can assure you!
I'm not the coolest...Read More

The Hyena
I‘m not a dog or cat in the area,
I am a carnivore in Africa;
I really roam to look for food to eat,
You cannot evade my sharp and tough teeth.

I run through ungulate herds in order 
To select a victim to...Read More

The hyena of hypocrisy
Grips in its rotted teeth
The shreds of our democracy 
And slavers on our grief.

  I have picked up a scent, something's been killed
  And I can hear my feline foes growling still

 Hoping to purloin a fresh meal

Sneaky snivelling dog,
Creeping around for gain,
Snatching whatever comes close,
No understanding of pain.

The pain that other things suffer,
The agony of dying for real,
I hope you never do realise,
Or empathise, notice, or feel.

But never forget the family,
The pull to provide for the...Read More

Hail the Emperor Gauis Tommaso
In his gold chariot with a white horse
Popular with Romans who loved him so
For bringing in lax laws he did enforce.

He freed all the slaves and ended the games
Twelve senator's plotted to overthrow

In church stair they do their things
In watchful eyes of heaven and earth

You are another world
away from me

Diving into a new 
Dimensions that

From the dark deep 
Ocean of sinking blue
Reach on the wave

I gift to You

You are stronger

It’s sunset in late afternoon, where towards a water pan,
A pride of lionesses, approach with a much rehearsed plan,
Followed by a clan of mobsters,
Hyenas cackling luridly like monsters,
All wanted the impala buck, upon seeing them he ran!

to those deprived of sanity

having no authority to deepen herself at will

Hillary, dear Hillary—where do we begin?
In your tale of deceit and corrupt political spin.
First lady, poor victim—
‘Vast Right Wing’ to blame,
A Chicago born, carpet bagging, New Yorker—how lame.
For over four decades, you ruthlessly fought,
Every virtuous ideal the forefathers sought.

Amid glittering disco ball promoting twenty-fifth year class reunion,
Drum master is at play, thumping Sheila’s traitorous heartstrings

Grieving tongues of misguided teeth;
Sucking virtues holding its peace;
Lighted candles on the ground;
Love lost people hurting on;

Holographic montage of holy statues;
Pangs of a mother's child;
Grounded hunters hunting wild;

Haunting Intrigue Stoked
Though the necks

humungous horror
helplessly harassing,
hellish hyena howling,
hideously hounding,
headless Halloween

not due to arrive
(in gremlin, golem, and
goblin crawling theaters
everywhere in outer limits
of twilight zone),
