Premium Member Tug of War Between One's Will And Writer's Block
"I still got some ink in my pen;  I know I can do this!,"
goes one's will.

"No dice, my brain is like scrambled eggs right now,"
replies writer's block

"I CAN DO THIS! THIS IS GO-TIME!,"
screams one's will

Premium Member Dogs Chasing People on Bikes


At times our Golden tends to go awry
She chases people on bikes, let me clarify
She doesn't ride the bike
Doesn't own one, no dice
You thought I meant our doggie, needs no reply

oscine affinities for summer summit
Up for grabs are looming sapidities of a summer summit.
Prompt as forecasting device, keen as cropland mice, 
trying to surpass oscine elves turns out no dice. 
Wondering how these yummy yodelers telepathize herself earliest, 
the estival essence, no longer bashful...Read More

	Off Season in Gallipoli

		April’s bus from Lecce unloads
		at the fabled fish market. It’s closed.
		The only hint of June’s full fare
		is one slight stall. No one lunching there.
		The streets are open; we stroll at will
		by a weathered or a white-washed wall.

Premium Member Mind over pen
My pen is on a chase
To beat my mind’s pace
It will lose the race
Since that’s the case

It’s slower than melting ice
as my thoughts are twice
It can’t keep up as nice
I do say it’s no dice

Government (show) Shut Down December 2018

Messianic Don found tarnished appeal
trumpeted bluster thwarted
with muted (hip hip hooray) Democratic zeal
played (on microscale) like quashed
ill fated braggadocio big deal

Ultima Thule
"Do you know where hell is?" 
Lee Marvin growls in headsets. 
New Year, sixty-eight. 
Hauling freight ten thousand high, 
bomber out of Platts, NY, 
is cruising over white. 
"Far out," (someone on intercom), 
"Iceland's green, and Greenland's ice." 
Routine run....Read More

That 9 11 Day
That 9/11 Day

I was eager that day, 
Just as I was 
Any other day, 
To start my work, 
And state the statistics,  
Discourage clientelle,
Validate company antics, 
Embrace others
When I thought would, 
Make a good share price, 
Positive returns,

Why
When does this come to an end?
In-between your foe and my friend,
apathy checks us in,
as its picnic's about to begin.
And I never misheard you, did I?
Yet you're not able to explain.
This time window I look through is dirty
and remains so...Read More

No Blocking the Plate
It's a round ball with a wooden bat.
Take some time to swing with that.

Ninety feet will get you there, 
From the lefty box (it's square).

Toward right, straight down the path,
Did you step up to take a bubble bath?

I Have No Time for You
I Have No Time for You

By Elton Camp

Old Dad wants to give advice
To his child, it’s “No dice”
Though he’s elderly, he still tries
But his words she does despise

“No, I don’t have time for you 
More important things I must do.

Two More Minutes with Peanut
 minute poem 

Stretching, I might be four-foot-six
I've learned to fix
the wixumph jokes
of thoughtless blokes.

Some people are antriphinal -
not short on bull
"Peanut," they yell
"Who cracked your shell?

Perspecitus, 'tis a good word
When thoughts get blurred,
big terms I use;
I've a long fuse.

Sue was checking out at the crowded store
Then occurred something that she did abhor

Although the checker tried to do it twice,
A bar code just wouldn’t scan—no dice

So, loudly over the store’s public address

No Dice
Yankees couldn’t pull it off
Although, of course, they tried.
It may take time until our
Disappointment will subside.

The Tigers played a better game;
Their pitching reigned supreme.
Yet watching all those chances blown
Just made me want to scream.

If A-Rod only got a hit
