As I was going to St. Ives,
I met a man who had nine lives,
He said he'd pinched them from his cat,
Who didn't look too good, at that,
Maybe its love of mice survives....Read More

Premium Member That Ship
The ship was launched with ballyhoo,
The greatest one to hit the blue,
Due to the delay of advice,
The darned thing barged into the ice:
"Unsinkable" was not quite true....Read More

To kill a mockingbird would be,
Inevitably, not easy:
Anyone who had read that book
Would give you such a nasty look
You would feel like a downright turd....Read More

How green was my valley before
My life became a metaphor,
Synonymous with discontent
As through good times and bad I went,
For that catch cry "I want some more!"...Read More

Premium Member Letters Home
I am writing letters home,
And will enclose in each a poem.
Here is my selection
For my verse connection.

I think for Maybelline
My best Alexandrine,
Six syllables per line,
That I'll polish till they shine.

Something different for Fritz,
I am sending him a Blitz,

Premium Member Life Is Not Only an Unfair Exclamation Point
It is a week before Christmas,
And I recline in my desk blue chair;
Bursting with words
That matter to you,
And hoping that that’s very fair.

For I know that you have your moods, too,
I hope that your girlfriend (or “boy--”) cares
And gives you...Read More

Wait For The Torque


Upon the table knife and fork,
tried to not be far from the food,
and from where the iced bottle stood.
Train of thoughts waited fingers’ torque
to spurt champagne with popped up cork.

MY OL' HOUN' DOG

He swallowed a spoon,  then a fork
Upon a train trip to upper New York
We had not traveled very far
And I discovered he had eaten a cork
Yes, that dog of mine is really a dork

Premium Member Smile I feign
Cork of my life, sheer pain in vain,

Rode with me upon a fast train;

Not far could I go, though I tried

For it blocked my path, hurt my pride;

Yet, tricking my brain, smile I feign.

Premium Member I Went Far Far Away
I went far far away,
On a train that took all day,
Upon my arrival,
I tried but my energy was final,
I popped the cork and enjoyed my glass of wine.

Premium Member Silly Notion
A cork for bottled emotions
Train rocked like it's on an ocean
How far would these rails take me 
I tried stifling these feelings you see
Wished upon were a silly notion

Premium Member She Left Me
I can't believe...how hard I've tried 
How far, I've come...to be denied 
One hundred miles, I rode that train 
Upon those tracks, in pouring rain 
I could not cork my tears; I cried

TRIED TO PREVAIL
Tried to prevail against kids’ quirks

in so far as I can’t hide mine

my heart strives to train, midst bliss-jerks

special child, upon God’s design

closing distress’ cork for good works*.

Premium Member I Felt Like a Dork
I tried to run after the midnight train
Too fast for me was abundantly plain.
Sat down with a bottle and popped a cork.
Way far gone she was. I felt like a dork.
Upon my word I had nothing to gain.

Premium Member Man Of Means
I fell in love with a man of means,
Money jangled in his blue jeans,
It did not take me long to dote
On one with gold around his throat,
And hair that held so bright a sheen.

I must go back to my home town,
Now I have won this beauty crown,
My Mum and Dad will want to boast
Of my triumph on the Gold Coast -
The folks will cheer for Bessie Brown.

To My Seductress Duchess
These, cacophony that beggars descriptions

Disorder from indecent breed incubating, 

Confusion of morals, the imposition of strange culture, 

Filthily dressed to undress my mind, 

Our teacher teaching theories of writs and wits

These promiscuous pastors parading piety with nudity

Lewd licentious and libidinous...Read More
