Mad Anthony's Masterstroke, Part I
In May of seventeen seventy-nine
Henry Clinton was having a hard time,
so tired of the rebels still fighting,
had to somehow get Gorge Washington
out of the looming Hudson Highlands,
and then force the war to a final ending.

He marched his army to the...Read More

Diary Of A Mid-Life Wife


Bites of frost fierce;
iced words did pierce
flushed flesh, soft soul
chilled as you stole

youth of my life,
long lived your wife.
We wed; blissed days
blest till your craze.

Your mid age mess
lust for me less,
as thrills I gave
you now don’t crave.

My angst for naught

One day, I hope that hole in my heart will fill.
One day, I'll be by your side.

I hope that day comes one day my brother
You're...Read More

Don't Know Her Name
I need to go wild where the whiskey flows,
And where the cards make a shufflin' flutter.
I will go wherever the young blonde goes,
And hope her blue eyes don't make me stutter.

Been ridin' this trail for a long damn time -

Advice Against Being an Ass
In a very crowded bar
Fred decides he must 
tell this fellow
something important
so he whispers 

“Don’t be an ass
and go home tonight
and raise hell over 
a matter like that.

“She did nothing wrong
except hurt your feelings
without knowing it.
She meant no harm.

“Be happy...Read More

No one is safe
The suns shines,
Yet the rain pours mercilessly
The angels sing harmoniously,
While the demons raise hell
The moon proclaims peace,
As the meteor destroys the earth,
No one is safe, from the desolation
No one is safe from the devastation
For years we used you like a...Read More

Today
So it begins anew
a day to dread, a day to wake up to
I'd say all I want to do is sleep, if sleep didn't terrify me
so I stay up till I faint
an opaque way to a colorless scenario
but bleak is...Read More

Self Inflicted
We have mentally drained our emotions into the world around us 
Causing our own commotions then get mad with what surrounds us. 
We lack to feel for those that we see have less. 
We slack and oppose for what we...Read More

we were heroes
for that moment
in the rush and heat of the crowd
under the television cameras and brilliant lights
there was camaraderie and purpose
there was the beauty of belonging to something bigger than
something grand and bright with promise

Note By Note
Sophisticated, but mentally endangered, he's sharp as a razor
Intimidated by his own mind, until his pen forms a sword and defeats his paper,
Categorized by society, given the label of a thug,
Found guilty of innocence, cause he was born into the...Read More

violent acts of rage

"Violent Acts of Rage"

Written by: Rodney Riggins


Power within to demolish what's
in front of you tearing away what's
been inside you for years. The beast is 
alive because your soul has died
and your hatred takes control of you.

Daydreaming
Desire 
Coursing through my veins
Infecting my brain
Drives me insane

I'm feindin' for those uppers
I'm feindin' to get down
I need to feel that ecstasy
That overwhelming sound

I'm cravin' me some instant death
I'm asking to raise hell
I hear my familiar shallow breath
That comfy, cushioned...Read More

Intelligence Incarcerated
Strong brains

Driven insane

Tired of mundane

Instruction tuned

In to the ways 

Of the world's sin

Many gifted from

Birth many treated

As if they have no

Worth. Satan on 

Their life path because

They have so many 

That their lives affect

So they are locked up

And inprisoned

A Gale Gallops
A Gale Gallops...
 
A storm is about to raise hell
The Golgotha will rise up again...
 
The stalking souls vex the running vein
Frigid libido longs for coital warmth
Relationships shatter...
Blood relations go bloody now and then.
 
Meteorological forebodings on air...
Beacon fails to...Read More

Friends
always remember your friends
take care of them and make sure the friendship never ends

They will raise hell and buy you a drink
and they wont judge you on what you think

They will steal your shoes and cry on you shoulder
But you...Read More

When he comes to my house, he causes nothing but trouble.

One Step Ahead of The Best
You walk on me like a sidewalk 
And write on me like chalk 
I go blind just seeing you talk 
My teeth are numb from hearing you walk
I’m caught in your vision
In the crosshairs of your indecision 
Like a shadow...Read More
