Premium Member What a fun debate - in Trump's own words
Did you watch it, what a show
Little Mikey slammed around,
Battered slowly blow by blow
With accusations that astound.

Pocahontas on the war path,
She’s the one that wields the axe,
Indignation, poisoned wrath
Her solutions just more tax.

Crazy Bernie full of zeal
Flaring nostrils squinting eyes,

Mine fervent aspiring political activism
Mine fervent aspiring political activism...

Gunning gusto, (while rosy axles grind)
for Bernie Sanders dagnabbit
nipped in figurative bud triggered zilch
prospects to germinate, 

cultivate, and amalgamate
late blooming spore port as 
schlocky, reedy, quirky, political neophyte,
whose aura, charisma, dogma
enigma, persona... absent gregarious masculinity.

These are post-revolutionary gay '20s,
without pre-revolutionary SpeakEasies,
replaced with ListenHard
to global climates of LeftBrain dominant despair.

Margaret Meade encourages
urges small winds
assembled in privatized circles,
yet still dreaming of love's great evolving liberty,
winning healthy democracy

Cognizant of humanity’s befallen verdict
Deliberately transgressing sovereign laws
Affirming carnal nature flaws…
Yet You, God Almighty, quickened my soul along divine edict.

Midst condemnation terrifying my heart
Frightened to face death’s agonizing seizure
With horrifying sting of grave-pressure… 
Still, You offered me redemption-grace, never will...Read More

Premium Member Ode to Silent Cal Coolidge
They called him 'Silent Cal'
  He didn't say very much at all
President about 100 years ago
  Seems like longer than that now, though

Guests at White House Parties
  Waxed eloquent in line and verse
While Cal Coolidge sat there...Read More

Leader of the home with virtuous height
Bracing up family with grand posture
Governing prudently by great faith’s might  
He’s our Daddy in his godly gesture.

Daddy dearest is our human fortress.
He loves us as he trusts the Lord* Who’s great.
Assertively pointing...Read More

At one fleeting imperative instant in my stretched journey of life 
I had to wage a war.

A war warranting its stretch some scarce second more 
My adversaries rallied their troops quickly than I blinked

Premium Member Out with the old
Out with the old; in with the new
A face from the past simply won't do
Joseph Biden's fairly melting away
Don't get ideas, Hilary
You've seen better days...

The same thing back in 2016 was true
Jeb Bush checked all the boxes then too

I will miss you, dear, if you go away,
Do you really, truly, have to go?

Do you remember the first heartbeat,

Tom’s Opinion

A partisan divide hovers over Washington today,
there’s no middle ground, when children act this way.

Once elected, some appear, to think voters are ancillary,
and they return to superior thinking and being contrary.

Nobody's Acolyte
Promise me nothing –
I’m not interested in your vows
Between the farmer and the field
Is just another broken plow
No backtalk allowed –
All discourse now falls short
A culture of mellow drama
And every day is the last resort

I’m a really nice guy and...Read More

A tiny world inside a tiny bubble
filled with danger and deceit
full of the world that they create
secret whispers in their shadows
within their darkness and their hate
