The Other Woman
She slings an orchid projectile at me
Should I drown her cats?
Incinerate her panthers?
Like an Italian widow
She always wears black
But orange silks would suit her better
With maybe a little wet green pike
Nesting between her breasts
Shining like quartz into another life
Another story,...Read More

Education and motivation
I think it is okay not to be the brightest bulb in the tool shed.
And I know I would only use that phrase in self assessment.
But I am talking about motivation. The motivation to learn and to take up the...Read More

They fight tooth and nail all those who don't like

Behind the scenes are plotting how to strike 

When see someone to excel

Declare war make his life hell

Till he gives up or pierce him with a pike

rocks watching the moon rise
over the banyan grove
in the shadows 
the monkeys fornicate
ears and eyes recording
this singularly unique but ordinary evening
the glowing moon never moves an iota
while it is being watched
the jumping pike
makes a triumphal splash
all motion moves in invisible...Read More

Premium Member Stickleback

The stickleback had survived chilly
Spring and well into warm, moist
His three spines keeping him safe
From even the glutton sabre toothed
A chance in a million  caught Him
In my childish net. He didn’t know
Thrashing and flopping to the gleeful
Chortles and chuckles...Read More

Premium Member Let's Do It Election Insanity

Yes, Let's Do it. Election Insanity.

Yes! Let us have all felons vote!
Better yet, let's muddy the "Swamp"
Have known killers run for Congress.
Perhaps, even be our President.
Indeed, the Americans have gone looney.

Must be chugging down really cheap wine.

Premium Member Behead Me Please
Behead me please
I would scream
Put it on a pike
In front of the scarecrow 
To show him
What he has not been able to do
That I can

My relatives would laugh
Thinking I was crazed, and maybe
I would be a bit, but think about...Read More

Premium Member The Simplest Things
There is so, much to be thankful for...
The simplest things in life are expressed even more.
Which add up to the big things in life,
We have choices but sometimes with a price.

Some come easily...
We either rejoice by singing.
Or be discouraged over...Read More

My Night on Thunder Road - A Parody
A profession that's not the norm.
It borders on the absurd.
In the mountains and down the hollers,
powerful engines could be heard.

I decided to try something new.
Put my driving skills to the test.
Driving from Harlan County to Asheville,
It didn't end well, you...Read More

Sonnet 13 The Battle of Marston Moor
Five Thousand Men!  Blood flowing in the creek,
The deadly sweep and ‘whisst!’ of footman’s pike,
The cavalry broke through where lines were weak!
The smell of grass and loam, a caltrop’s* spike
That pushed right through my boot, and left me lame…

Premium Member The Lancaster Pike
Down this once famous graveled road
I drive by day and drive by night
my mind replaying stories of times past.
As if thinking about them
can make them real again.
Buildings standing with new faces, signs.
I see them now only as they once were

I hear the door open.
It is my chance.
I run up from the basement to 
see my darling offspring who used to
love me, sneak out of her room.

She looks up from her cereal.
Is that a growl?
I smile. “Hi!” I say brightly.

Summer night on the river
The fading sunlight angles through the trees –
Strange alchemy that turns the river gold;
And on this balmy night with scarce a breeze
To trouble little ducklings gay and bold,
They sail and scoot around without a care
And do not see, submerged, the...Read More

No imagination no retirement
I can't imagine what it must be like,
With no excuse to retire,
Never seeing a time for the boss to take a hike.

Seeing no reason to stoke the fire,
No wish to see the grandchild...Read More

Without the almond cream on top!

Life Is...
Dr. Jim Martin

Life is what you make it,
Or so the saying goes.
Does it, however, matter
What the enemy throws?

Surely one should be on guard
And great attention pay.
Many things are coming
Down the pike each day.

How one will respond
To an unforeseen event

I've got a dish of killifish
I wish to eat that silly fish

Roasted, dried, or let to boil.

Take me to the Catfish Fry
Lead me to the China Sea
Feed me hermit crabs and...Read More
