Premium Member Refurbished Nursery Rhymes: Old Mother Hubbard, a cautionary tale
When Old Mother Hubbard
Examined her cupboard
And found not a scrap there to munch on...
Not one morsel that clung
To an ort or a crumb…
She felt foolish and dumb
And stood sucking her thumb
While her dog, Butch, got nothing for luncheon.
"She forgot to...Read More

When one loves
one risks love lost.
The risk with hope
disappointment.
The risk of trying 
finding failure.
If one risks nothing
where is the love.
If one risks nothing
where is the hope.
If one risks nothing
where is the success.
If one risks nothing
where are the lessons.

Summer in Karroodorp 1954
On the anvil that’s the dorp
The noon-day sun beats down.
So between twelve and two
Life in the place is suspended.
Doors to the stores are ‘toe’
And in their dusty windows cheap 
Mannequins sleep with open eyes.

The air is still and heavy.
So in...Read More

Grace by Vera Polozkova translation
When Steven leaves Grace, she continues and carries on living
By inertia usually lasting twelve days, giving
Jokes as such “Stevie, it’s ridiculous, but it is your life”
Only then skies start to rot and wither over Steve’s wife.

Already was straight up the flame and steady
To speak no more, and yet away it went
Being the sweet poet to let it ready,

When another, which followed in ascent,
Made us to turn our eyes to top from low

Premium Member English Mastiff - A Love Story
Both of our baby girls wear a black mask.
They try listen to do what my wife asks.
These gentle giants far out weigh my wife.
The two girls are a large part of her life.

Shelby is the watcher by my wife’s side.

Premium Member Canto XXI Hell translation
So bridge to bridge, of other things speaking
Of which my comedy does not take care,
We walked; and reached the top, when seeking
For watching the next slit, then we stopped there
Malebolge to see and crying vain;
And I saw it strikingly with...Read More

In Dog We Trust
Something as small as a Chihuahua or a Pomeranian,
or as large as a Mastiff or Great Dane,
is taxonomically classified as “Canis familiaris”.
This domesticated species is man’s companion.
Dogs are found anywhere between Sydney and Ft. Wayne.
They have an ages-old history that...Read More

WHO SHOT MY DOG
WHO SHOT MY DOG?
Dedicated to my English mastiff, Zeus

Who would shoot my dog
The brindle warrior
Whose brave heart
Kept me safe
Whose eyes
Followed me in faithfulness
When tears of anguish fell
The male who had my trust
Slept beside me nightly
Alert at any strangers touch
Upon my...Read More

Nigerian ninjas
I see their faces on billboards & posters
with democrat's smiles they flatter their figures
they do not paint their mastiff & slavers
The constellations of their idle ideals is missing in their pictures.

I sank back in my sofa, watching my television

smiling sorrow
Grey turns the sky at noon:
Broken arrows storm the atmosphere
With their terrible mastiff and slavers
And carted away the glowing stars.
I gazed with a blurred lens
Into the sky where the sparrows fly	
But the smoke from the burning huts 
Had scared away...Read More
