Looking at You, I See An Honest Man
Looking into your eyes, I see a determined man
spurned by an arrogant father, who ignored him.
Your eyes are a porthole of courage and restraint.

Looking at your face, there a flash of goodness
when your young son reaches up to be held....Read More

Neighborly Distances
From a neighborly distance, the drama of a life's finality unfolded
A man named Mient. Once a well-known construction-scientist
When we became neighbors at Christmas he was a double amputee
Both legs taken by diabetes, then a man of his own ethnicity
Challenged him...Read More

My Worth
My worth is not in what I own -
In real estate, or company,
Big car or boat, prized jewelry,
Investments that have grown.

My worth is not in what I do -
The job I work, or what I’m paid
Awards, promotions, deals I’ve made;
How...Read More

Nick Knock
I was in between jobs at the time and running short of cash,
so without a need to now explain my future don’t look flash.
I tramped from door to door to plead my unemployment case
in a hope that sympathetic souls would...Read More

Premium Member Hangman
Wonder what the hangman had in mind
When he was looking in the doomed man’s eyes,
While double-checking if the noose was right 
Did he have haunting, hollow dreams at night?
Did he empathize with the condemned man?
Was it compassion for beloved ones?
Or...Read More

Life's Destiny
Something about this nature calls to me
To set me free
Of this heartbreak I forsee

Inside, something stirrs
Though my destiny still blurs
But what do I prefer?

Should I care for a young one?
Or is that too much to be done?
Though, it seems like...Read More

At the close of day
The shadows lengthen,
Birds fly to their nests,
Some children run home,
The sun disappears.

Shops do not close,
Not any more,
Open till late,
Kept busy, too.

As for jobs,
Not the norm

Economic Conditions and Thoughts
I am a labor economist who prepared the unemployment rate,
I was checking with other labor economists about this.

Average income has been decreasing.

Unemployed are dropping out of the workforce.

More workers than ever have multiple jobs needed
tp support themselves with. 

More workers...Read More

While I pretty much pined for this impeachment
my fellow Americans voted for this guy and they could be right
I’ve been wrong before, stuck as we are with a system
that generates some perplexful leaders, democracy being the worst form

Premium Member Way of all flesh
At five foot four and seven stone,
Steve was all skin and bone,
At six foot two and twenty stone,
Brenda was all muscle and tone.

A love story of strange proportions,
Their bonding needed no potions,
It was a pure attraction of the heart,
In which...Read More

Principal Clown
He walks around with his nose pointing upward in the air
With calculating eyes that are so fearful, mouth moving from side to side and a tongue that keeps twisting around the things that are profound. Nonsensical words are constantly dripping...Read More

What it means is
Feeling overwhelmed 
She looked into having
Someone watched over
areas where meddlers
could cause havoc
Or undo all she had
She remembered her father
saying to her
" everyone that's qualified to
be your lover; maynot be
Qualifed to do the work"
She smiled thinking of old
lovers, adding some of...Read More

What Did You Do With Gods Tithe
Jesus taught the world
to become fishers of men
to collect Gods tithe
to overcome poverty

Yet men taught themselves
to steal Gods money
and spend it on themselves
take a look

at the houses brought
by the leaders of the church
where once they have your money
they build mansions...Read More

Lib's A Fib
I'd like to write a line or two
About Woman Lib
In this age of women's rights
I feel that lib's a fib
"Equal Rights for Women!"
I agree with that, for sure
But twentieth-century women want
Equal rights and more

More jobs and equal rights
More pay and...Read More

Fence and the fox
Cattleman's pride
who put the bounty
on the head of the
Danger City Cowboy?
somebody said something
and those Varmitts responded to it.
Otters curiosity.

Gods Anger Not Just The Church
If I was God
