A Husband's Nightmare
‘Twere a foolish youth indeed
that ne’er his parents’ voice would heed.
“We hear you’re courting Mary Lue.
Dump that flirt, what e’er you do!
Once you’re wed, she’ll run you down.
Her name is known throughout the town.”

Alack! O woe! O Sorrow’s pang

It appears that we live in a world today,
where we try to convince others, things are Jake.
Too many don't adhere to the things they say,
and A.I. a peddler of everything fake.

I love my Little Maddie.
She’s pretty as can be.
She likes to dance and prance around.
And hit Uncle Jake on the knee (oh, oh,)

She’s a real sweet...Read More

When Reggie was in the army
He lost a leg
His fellow soldiers
Renamed him Peg
He was extremely brave
Soon forgot the pain
Although without this limb
He would never be the same again
Jake was a friend
Peg met in the local pub
To have a game of...Read More

I did in my garden see a Snake.
Curled calmly around the gardener's rake.
Knowing that my dear life was at stake,
I beckoned in fright to my son Jake.

Burn him or precious lives he might...Read More

Gazing at row upon row of white headstones
On his shoulders lay the finality of their weight

Who had a house upon the lake
Every morning he would wake
And for breakfast have a piece of cake

He always used a long cane pole

Ghost Hollow
The Laskey brothers owned a farm, a lovely little spot.
A babbling brook made merry mist when summer nights were hot.
And that’s when Jacob filled his pipe and sat upon a boulder.
The smoke arose, a haloed ring around his tired shoulders.

Give me love that I've worked for, no more, but no less,
For no man is deserving, I freely confess!
I don't need understanding, that complicates things,
And seeds fool expectations out home on the range.

I have a confession to make
I've been kissing my dear dog Jake
Not on the lips

When others quiet boyishly
Get shot down

Put down by girls coyishly.

satanic torture
I find myself
In a dark room
Strapped to a bed

The light turns on
The large TV comes on

A smiling image
Of Satan fills the TV
He is dressed
In a conservative business suit

Looks like he came
Out of a corporate
board meeting

surrounded by demonic aides
who constantly shove...Read More

Ye rishta pyaara pyaara sa,
Mere man ko bhata hai.

Tum kehte bhi kuch kam hi ho,
Kuch sun ye Dil kam pata hai
