O' Cenobite, Dar'est Thy Soul Await

Alas! By what right is such assailing
amidst uproar, then half-truths a'telling
Does not morn gift upon grass falling dew
yet truth perseveres despite what others do

The day, at some point, has to begin,

Splitting the Bill
When friends share a restaurant meal
Who eats what is not a big deal

A group member might simply declare
He or she finds his portion unfair
‘Cause she ate...Read More

Ode to a Member
In times gone bye with a wink of its eye
It hung there just like a truncheon
A handy old tool within a gene pool

This womb broom was famous in those days back then

Jeb Bush checked all the boxes then too

As a child I was called a Tom Boy,
following my twin brother like a shadow,
wherever he went I would tag along,

So incredibly easy to see what others could do
It is difficult sometimes to not make suggestions
or give some kind of help or push in a certain direction

So you think Gangs are cool
So, you think gangs are cool,
Are you really that big a fool,
Did I not see you at a rally to make women your equal?
And did you not support a carpool,
To keep children safe from a possible ghoul.
