Kirk Douglas 

Today we heard we lost Kirk 
Who never needed a shirt
Always a lovely flirt that Kirk
 Joining Moses in heaven
Who we watched in the movie way past eleven 
Hopefully God enjoyed their sound stage cheese

Premium Member Burnt to a Crisp

burnt to a crisp -
but the town
is famous for
its restoration,
pets be gone -
eight in all;
one sits on his lap,
the family’s source
of hope,
lifting the community’s spirits -
by the light of Christ,
he’s the source.

the Grinch
became educated —
there was more
than the feast,

Profound Magnificance the legend of Ghetto Sushi
He stood in the middle of
The ring and asked the
Members of The
Right Stuff inc.
To stop the B.S.
And start making things
Right for the people.
In his lavish robe
And pink mask
Ghetto Sushi
Said if it comes to
Wrestling he'd out
Wrestle them
If it came to
Brawling he'd

Something tells me we'll feel that pulse
People react to you
Like somebody who
Has that special stuff with that force from above

Premium Member A Friend's Rebuff
O, why's my love not quite enough
You say that things are super-rough
You have to be insanely tough
And turn your voice up extra-gruff

No time to be a soft creampuff
Solution's made of sterner stuff --
I pray you'll hear this friend's rebuff

If we want to do better,
We must hope for something better,
Believe in something that is better.

I still find it hard to believe,
That there are people who are afraid to believe
Who have no reason to believe

For some the best present in...Read More

My Depression
My Daily Depression

I see shapes of gray
And black too
I wonder what it’s going to be like
For me and you
When we lose it all
Especially, our furr babies of love
What would we do?
Would we still believe in above?
What can we do, to...Read More

Throttle Up, Challenger

Synchronicity woven by fate’s volatile hands
   Gave rise to calamity in deceptive, calm skies
   Creating tragedy so harsh that reason defies
Into a nation’s sad heart, a mortal arrow lands

Hear ye, teachers, the benign invitation...Read More

Chicken Soup for the Shrivelled Soul
Remember that you are always right
And others always wrong
If only they could see the light
And sing your victory song

Surely made of the right stuff
That is truly what you are
If only the world would recognise
The brightness of your star

Hold your head...Read More

The past my call to me
Distraction try to bind me
But your love will always

apology to misguided feminists
Clinton on steroids—Fiornina 
She shreds truth like a hyena
Let's make the world right
No—she’d much rather fight 
As the killer in the arena

She couches words not a tight muff
If her clothes be stripped 
See the mummy...Read More

The wish of growing boy it seems
Can never come true fast enough,
But then it does and yet somehow
You find yourself still wondering,
Amazed to find you hold the wheel.
But thoughts are gone you lack right stuff,

Premium Member PLAN

Nurture a bold feel,
Offer to align.
Notice plain free will,
Observe the clear signs;
Note how thoughts emerge,
Sense a steady stream;
Engage a fond urge,
Never pawn a dream.
Suspend the draft sought,
Explore the right stuff.
Play against the odds,
Live bold and enough;
Adjust to the quest,
No nonsense...Read More
