The 3 Legged Horse
THE 3 LEGGED HORSE
 
I am placing all my bets, on this ‘ere, 3 legged horse 
That it shows some fettle and gets round the course

It has no chance of winning, for that you can be sure 
But as for...Read More

Fold FORM POETRY - CLIMATE CHANGE
Climate change, a threat!
All bookies odds are odds-on,
Would one want to bet?
Look, can you not see sorrow?
Climate change a threat!
Wildlife, that was, disappeared!
No good now regret!
Natures warnings all denied!
Build your own rocket.
The clock near to striking doom!
Climate change a threat!...Read More

Last Bye

Years rolled back........

Again he sprout of mothers womb,
Latched tender breasts 
Then slowly  bloomed into a flower 
Like tender leaves fluttering in air 
Hearing the lullabies of  cold breeze 

Then flashed glimpses of moments in hurry 
Wife ,children ,job,pleasures...Read More

To Pete Seeger - circa shortly before his death - verse 2
unsure if this epistle (possibly 
coming across as all mixed up)
like some mish mashed verse
ye might arrange and rearrange into a song
living social in the country of upstate New York state
epitomizing spartan holistic existence
somewhere over the rainbow with a hefty...Read More

Rotten To The Core
9/15/16


Across the lands and shores

Plants and spores

So much life in different shapes and forms

Many storms cold or warm



Always been an omnivore

So I eat vegetables like corn

And meats like albacore and boar

I don't care about the odds on the board

It's about...Read More

I go hard in the paint like "Olajuwon"
Taking the last shot like "Lebron"
I see how they think I got a Magic "Wand"
Cause how Magically I'm running with the "Baton"
Running a "Marathon"
No Quran but I'm like "Farakon"
Telecasting a "Telethon"
I'm Liu Kang...Read More

Fair and Equal World
We come to this world of surprises at a time we don't choose!

Not knowing if we'll get to a paradise or hell would break loose!

We are born to parents whom we yet have to know well enough!

We've no clue if...Read More

Premium Member ON TIMETABLE HAPPINESS
Past the years of innocence
Moreover the renaissance
Gazing to familiar faces
Familiarizing myself as it effaces

Now, I have been here four days
I can say it's all worth the pay
Was taken aback by few changes
Doesn't matter as long as nothing hinges

Priceless happiness, I...Read More

Pascal

Blaise Pascal awaits his last call 
beneath Saint Etienne-du-Mont's tall 
columns and old rood screen.  God's nature, 
pray, ups the odds on his last wager....Read More

BILLYtheKidster, BILLYtheCryBaby, BILLY, the pathetic loser that is he.
So you lost your oldest son to someone driving while drunk
and now you sit around appearing so sad, just to attract attention from everyone.
Pretending to still be in mourning the loss of...Read More

Normandy Now
Velcro shod man
lingers in the V.A. clinic
for yet another visit;
he slowly turns pages,
reading pictures.

Withered man
peeking from beneath bushy eyebrows
laying odds on another day
at the park:  stooping
to stop the ball
a kid just threw curved
into the wheelchair.

Sitting
his old bowed head
white and...Read More

Despair  clouds of anger  in drought

Replace with  faceless shame  pave title of hate
Close its sphere hangs ...Read More
