Premium Member Bigotry More Alive Now Than the 60s
Giddiness pretends we love indifference
Desperation in ignorable thoughts
Status quo readies us for church and stuff

Our heads buried like the pink flumed ostrich
Having more in common with us than us
Hatred follows us around like mouse traps

Head clouds are pretty not hearing...Read More

Premium Member That's Fur Out
An ostrich can outrun a racehorse,
And their eyes are bigger than their brains
The only birds that have but two toes
Some may even have saddles and reins!

On the old Batman TV series
They added Aunt Harriet, for they
Feared, two bachelors and a...Read More

Avid anteaters ate artichokes
Blossoming beyond barley’s beauty,
Classic chews can clearly 
Deny delivering dangerous dangling dates
Evening eggplants enormous evolved ecstatic
Ferocious fig fritters furthering Frito’s finesse.
Galloping gingerbread giants gobbling goats gelatin,
Hurrying heavily handsome hindquarters 
Imagining illustriously ignorant
Jealous juried jams
Killing king’s kiwi kingdoms.
Lazy...Read More

Am I invisible... you almost knocked me flying
I’m on the pavement too, can’t you see me!
Too busy on your bloody mobile
Makes me seethe as you can see!

Your ‘ostrich’ bonce buried, phone in hand

Looked a bit strange 
Like Neville from the Grange 
Someone here ,  but out of range          entirely 

His hair was different ,  too

Premium Member Owl Serenade
It was the driest season in years
the animals were running out of food
they gathered around their withering watering hole
looking up at the night sky 
hungrily wondering what the stars tasted like
so they made a plan to reach them.
The giraffe would...Read More

Premium Member A GOOD SHAKE

Everyone around me's falling
Soldiers in this war of life
It seems so inescapable
Bad news everywhere I turn

I just want to be
an ostrich for a day
Hide my head in sand

Buried deep recoup then
Give my head a shake
Wait for the sunny days

Wherein I'll...Read More

I remember the silhouette
From her stares and gestures
How they gracefully slithered
Through minds and seasons
The silk in her demeanor
How it sucked un-weaved roughage
And tilted edges of dispositions
Until moments stood firm
She only had one niddle of hope
With locally done emotional textiles
She could...Read More

In Boo Land ...

Every gagged mouth is covered 
by a grave reeker hand
Raven black-cloaked, vomit foul specter
maniacally sob laughing
Someone’s been tilting the tomb bottles again,
tipping thru the Pet Sematary growling 

Inflicting fear is the feral joy of the frightening
Scream suffering

Crossing the White Line

Ebony drunk  and burnt rubber   sienna swerving,
I crossed the white line ...
And tragically,
with emotional intensity,
word vehicular hit a vanilla-colored human being

My coal senses were belly dulled 
by the intoxicating,   sepia pleasure liberating pang
Released from the...Read More

The ostrich feather of justice
weighing values from the heart 
processed from ethical and moral principles
upholding a measure to see right from wrong 
conflicting roles of chaos needs to be addressed 
there is a disturbance against the cosmic harmony

Ostrich eggs are 6 by 5 inches weighing 3 pounds
Imagine coming out, screaming is heard all over town
Equal to 2 dozen chicken eggs
So the question it begs
Are they waiting for death to get rid of their frowns

The ostrich is surely a curious bird
Composed of elements rather absurd
Overstuffed body, resting on twigs for legs
Babies hatch in dump nests of 50+ eggs
  Weighing as much as three pounds each

I love animal facts.
Could read them all day long.
Could write them in a song.

An alligator can
 live 100 years.
Well isn’t that just wrong?

An elephant tooth is the size of a
Newborn baby, a human baby.
On steroids – a nine pounder.

In May, the lion’s ear blooms immaculately,
As if the night sky is on fire.
It excretes a ravishing untarnished beauty,
A mesmerizing compelling beauty
Only the mad mystics and poets can discern.

The pair with the ostrich plumes,

Up the splinter tree love lodges in the cold winter
A blizzard charades a feeble allegiance
Remotely an owl’s grasp, peaked a branch
Its fixed eyes study the delicate nest
In the storm, upright wings of chromatic plumage
Wantons, in the season, playing for a...Read More

The most-populous landmass.
