Premium Member Lady Of The Jungle
It would be such happiness
For me to be a lioness,
I would have such lovely dreams
Of human victims' piercing screams,
Every morning as I strode
From my junglesque abode,
Always living in the hope
That I might nab some silly dope,
But in case my constitution
Should...Read More

Picnic by the river
Stood by the river, throws a pooh stick
Suddenly I hear “nanny come quick!”
The water went splash
a dog a mad dash
Crossing the river to nab our picnic!

Driving Thru Rat Race Maze
I ain't gonna brag, boast, blab...,
lest yours truly suffers demise from backstab,
resignedly taking wheel of our automobile
donning, (but NOT trumpeting) 
role as taxi cab

shuttling the missus, (she effusively glad)
to medical appointment
me, the obliging husband
in order for this mister former cad,

Premium Member Think in Feelings Love and Peace
Grab it. Nab it. Hug it quick. 
Walk it. Talk it. Squawk it thick. 
Enjoy each other every day 
If you want true love to stay

Leave it. Loosen it. Walk away. 
Think not in pink or green or gray.

A Shovel Unearths
A brutal murder in portentous chill
A helpless life, under butcher's will
An ominous spade digs soil in till.
Buried in dark secret, an aghast kill.

Corpse stenched, languished still. 
The cops nab smite, in strokes of grill..
Shoveled out of dirt, brown bags fill.

Premium Member Why I Should Win lst Place
'Tis fairly certain that struggling bards such as this old bloke,
Are seldom honored or make any money 'til after they croak!

To nab First Place in Bobby's contest just for the...Read More

Deforestation and mechanization,
Have vanquished,
Tribes and animals,
Have been banished.
United the world must stand,
Against those,
Who grab green land.
Corporations brazenly,
Partake in this nab,
Their only thought
To possess and to grab.
What do they gain,
In this pitiful game,
Only fear of a lion...Read More

Genesis Of Thoughts

I Saw A Mouse.

There's a mouse in the corner by the bathroom door.
I'm sure it's the same one I saw the night before.
With his cute pink round ears and his whiskers askew
we'll nab him  and catch him before our...Read More

Lion Lion
Lion you are awesome king 
The king of the jungle
You are a mighty one
You are the feared by many
Your roar is loud and scary
It echoes all around
through the prairies and safaris
The animals are frightened when they hear it
They run and...Read More

Out on an early morning stroll
Out on an early morning stroll,

while people roll in bed, snoring,
encore in dreamy shores, I looked up. 
The sun was on a drill, dressing up 
clumps of clouds for the day's display. 

I needed to nab my share of shade:...Read More

Your black eyes know about my tiresome silence
Your black eyes know about my tiresome silence
They catch temptation just like blind wolf-cub
The Deep is laughing at the Deep in violence
With roar in eyes what I will never nab.
You are in mind of mine, in dreams, in fancy

Learn from life each deed friends sweet myrrhs
Earn love and trust by less wants

Bite Me!!

He held out his hand gingerly
With lettuce—on guard inwardly—
Iguana did snap!
We heard, “Holy crap!
He bit me!” he yelled bitterly!

You cannot assume when you try
To do something good it will fly!
Some “creatures” will nab,
While others must stab—
Make “bite me” your...Read More

You gotta learn

When it's a burn

When it's the last dying turn

So dag-nab-it-
it's gotta earn

So let the coins turn

And a dime red-out the purrin'

Proposing a churnin'

As I say 'loins churpin!'

As the logs of the hall stay turned-in

Like a bomb cab-in!

Punxsutawney Phil Speaks
What’s that noise I’m a hearin’ just above my head

Premium Member Pretty Pets
I've had many pets in my life.
Right now two cats and I abide
In my small house the size for us,
But I can't let this pair outside.
They're feral cats that I rescued
When wild coyotes invaded nests.
Wild coyotes on our rich farm...Read More

Hazy Days in Colorado
Hazy Days in Colorado

By Elton Camp

So many are now buying out there
There’s a haze of smoke in the air

Those who desire to get high
Just breathing, they should try

So many bought a joint to smoke
That innocent ones began to choke

How can passion nab a prudent mind
Heartless and unrelenting sorrow
Passion which
Haunts across seas 
Crazes uncharted through widow making mountains

Shadows its prey
day by day from scent of soap to toothpaste caps
Sleepless nights in strangers beds—The vows once...Read More
