was a monkey, so bad
He beat up his trainer
which made him feel glad

You can find him often
pitching a fit
But don't get too close
while he's throwing his ....

when a publisher called

While riding a paisley tiger

I collected the kinetic swirls
of differing shades
in the dizzying reflections
of how you made me feel

Whirling affects
blurred in calliope sonnets
and brass ring reachings
while riding a paisley tiger

My pockets filled
with these mesmerizing emotions
sculpted of Ferris Wheel desires
and carousel dreams of you

Until suddenly...Read More

For you have my stalwart friend,
Stood by me no matter what!
No false cloak of religiosity have
you hidden behind.
Nor various forms of poetic pomposity!

But you? 
Alas you who I did trust.

Our Brains not designed for it
However we came into being,
Commenting on anything and everything,
I am sure was not factored in,
When it came time to give us a brain.

When it became obvious that our brains were about to implode,
Computers appeared on the scene,
And one would have...Read More

To know that control
Is but a sweeping touch of fear
From the monkey mind
That skims and flirts from
A thousand passing thought patterns
Masquerading as truth

Premium Member The I Am Sorry People
I am sorry. It’s just the way I was made.
I’m sorry. It is in my genes.
I’m sorry. It is my pattern.
I’m sorry. But I warned you.

Being with the “I’m sorry people” is a challenge.
They do not want to take responsibility,
And...Read More

Without hens we wouldn't have eggs every morn
Without eggs, this clever monkey would wish he wasn't born
Maybe a bit extreme
Even for this old bean 
Sometimes even this clever monkey can be forlorn

Who gave monkey the banana
Who gave monkey the banana
I hear them analysing again
Saying all they did and can do 
They keep on promising
Cos that always they can do better
Is not new to see them speaking
What we know 
It looks possible when they speak

In the jungle alone
Wicked mountain side
Screamed freedom echo 
Echo to the heavens above
Scent of nature glade my soul
My soul wondered 
Wondered the jungle 
Connected with the tiger 
Tiger lick my spirit 
Strength restored to conquer 
Monkey dive on my back
Shook and dodge obstacles...Read More

Premium Member Why Do We Need Trees
Of course you can climb a tree
Building a house on them is the most fun
You can hang a tire on them and swing like a Monkey
You can watch their leafs grow

You can also watch their leafs fall

Finally made it,
Thought I wouldn't make it,
Yet here I am just about on top of things,
Soon everybody and everything will be beneath,

Draped this monkey-suit over this large leathered chair,
Then I saw the mirror...Read More

Premium Member Brain Overload
Jabbering in his mind
Unclear thoughts, non-cohesive, renegade,
Running wildly with a 1957 Chevy truck, 
Honking with a gaggle of winter geese.
Fuzzy dendrite connections, 
Brain overload, grabbing out-of-control ideas,
Hoisting them into cyberspace with his unicorn monkey pals.

The water pooled on the thirsty ground; as if the arid dirt took it's time soaking up every drop. It was only overspill from bathing my spoiled fern. Domesticated plants come first. They dwell in the warm, fertile, specially bought...Read More

Whippoorwill jumping jack
Putting daisies pretty
A lonesome road
A one-eyed toad
Painting butterfly city.

Monkey magic is tack.
Bright moonbeam sorely gone.
Upside down me.
Where is your fee?
Whippoorwill jumping fawn.

I saw a child on a play yard swing
And my soul soared with fervent joy.
As precious memories came flooding back
To when I was just a boy.

My shirt and shoes were often first to go.
