Premium Member Abraham Father of Many Retorts

Fake news and beliefs in hegemonic certitude at its roots

An epidemic of political correctness spread through the world

Though shalt not speak my name in vain for I know no sin but

Hedonism and narcissistic conquest spread a message of fear

Tender Tums
Some stomachs are sensitive
They grumble and complain
It's fortunate that all of them
Don't re-act the same
Some are very selective
And careful about what they eat
Others devour everything
As if it were a treat
Apple Pie, Jelly, Nuts, Ice Cream
Chocolate, Meat, No Veg

Welsh Leftovers
I swallowed hard the feelings scorned,
to finish off my plate

But filled I was in sated form
a glutton postulate

I bit off more than I could chew,
with meat still on the bone

My stomach full of fiery barbs
—leftovers unatoned

likes bone ...
They say that poor
likes poverty ...

Money and an  shoe last,
and look what they prefer

This Is Uganda
This is Uganda
My motherland
My home that I love so much
Boom, boom, boom,boom

Who is it?

Some arrests here and there
And that’s it
He is gone
And the killers too are nowhere to...Read More

Premium Member ''For What Purpose Are We Created''
For what purpose are we created, I
oft' ponder? Are we fashioned by the hand
of God to know Him for eternity?
Mankind was meant to increase and expand
in the lap of His love and Providence; 
ne'er to fall from grace by sin,...Read More

Now I just wanted a taco;
Is that too much to ask.
I have the meat and spices, yum.
First I slapped the meat in the pan,
Waited for one side to scorch,
Flipped it over and 
Splashed grease all over but then,
Scraped it into...Read More

Animal Instict
Through the glass, your body stills.
What life was there - isn't.


You can't see me, but I can see you.

The pain in my temples kills.
Dead eyes,

Wake up, wake up.

I think I'm going deaf.
Waves wash over skin,
Turning it grey and speckled.

Red and...Read More

Sunday Sonnet

A floating Sunday stew spells love to me
A bit of sage, and steam from rosemary,
Can you hear the sizzle and yummy call,
The smell of stewed cinnamon applies in fall.

Waiting for homemade dinner’s smells to eat,
Nap on Sunday, then pie...Read More

The girl
The girl thought she had it beat,
But then she couldn’t stand to eat,
Not even a single piece of meat. 

The girl started to disappear,
She begged for help but no one could hear.
She didn’t want to be here,
All she was, was...Read More

Hunters come to camp on this hill,
prime vantage point to plan the kill.
They watch a herd of roaming deer
that come to graze in valley near.
And in that herd they spot their prize
so sneak towards with foucussed eyes.

The Great Banquet

I’ve been to many banquets and many smorgasbords;
The fare has been so sumptuous as there it all was stored.
I’d try to take a sample of everything I liked;
The salads were so tasty, the meat looked cooked just right.

Food 4 Thought
You are what you eat
So dine on game meat
The taste is a treat
And gives you fast feet

Vegetables eat crap
And then take a nap
A slow-running sap
Can sweeten each scrap

Meat may be for men
But wives wonder when
The coq loves the hen
Like Barbie...Read More

Experiments With Eggs
Fur pies don't sell so bakers use eggs
It is evident in the historical records
The unborn remnants inside the shell
Children of the chicken
Are soft and gooey and easier to use
Fur coats are difficult to swallow

Daniel Chapters 1 and 2
In the third year of Jehoiakim’s dynasty.
Nebkadazar stepped into Judah’s society
He besieged Judah’s land.
And God allowed him the upper hand.
For the children of God were transgressing
Causing a cursing instead of a blessing.
For numerous years they were in Babylon’s captivity.
Where God’s...Read More
