I would like to enter, 
and sometimes I do. 
Occasionally I even win, 
to my surprise. 
How cool!

The true rule, 
to every fool,
or pirate on a mission;
is write,
and write,
and write. 
Do something, 
say something in words, 
that will ripple...Read More

Dribble drabble dimply dish
Sunny solemn simple sojourner
Boiling biting bunson burner

Twisting words we rarely swaddle

The neighbors moved away. 
They said nothing to anyone, 
they just left. 
New people took the home. 
There was a big truck. 
It was full of boxes, 
and a TV. 

It was jam-packed with animals...
and cages...Read More

The very topic is inclusive of the word, 
that haunts our every step from birth;
until our last breath.

Knowing that we are all passing away,

Fear of Acceptance

The queen called her jester, 
and requested a joke! 
He had nothing to say, 
He just sat there, 
as he had already choked.

Shorty was a little dog, 
Curly was too. 
They played every day, 
until there was nothing else to do. 

Rolling on the grass, 
digging up the garden, 
chasing butterflies
and frogs near the pond. 

The days are full, 
of everything...Read More

with a black claw bear paw trap.
But he stubbed toe three in the trap in the tree,
Snip snap toe three was gone.

The boy was hopping
The girl was skipping
The baby was bouncing
While the man was kipping

The cat was pouncing
The dog was dancing
The music was bobbing
The sound was throbbing

The dormouse slept
When a lion leapt
As a pig walked by
With a blinking eye
Away he crept

Somewhere...Read More

Here's some tips I can say,

If you keep eating like you are today,

There's often times I'd come to see
how clearly I could flee

So all who go to have their way

I will never give in, 

To you,

I eat words of truth,

I have my teeth in it,

Never will I quit,

You can't hide, 

Behind your lying lips,

Not everyone, 

Is willing, 

To be taken,

It's true,
