While shopping, Hope would say to Faith
"Should we check out that Psychic there?"
Faith said, "They may know the future,"
"But, I don't think they have a prayer!"

After a penance would change hands,
Some cards were read without ado
The Psychic said, "All that...Read More

Just Smile
We’d like to think some angel smiling down
will watch him as his arm bleeds in the yard,
ripped off by dogs, will guide his tipsy steps,
his doddering progress through the scarlet house
to tell his mommy “boo-boo!,” only two.

We’d like to think...Read More

My People
My people, good people bad people
Try them, have a taste, 
How do you like the sweet aloe Vera?

My people are black, dark
Not that it bothers me but
It might explain the odd comportment

My people have black hearts, rotting
From stabs of lovers,...Read More

PAIN OF INFIDELITY

Fatima was always dressed up fittingly as any occasion called for 

Today one might call her a performance artist but she was

A hippie and child of God always good for some drama though 

Was not taken seriously in the reviews...Read More

Damn the Rain
floodwaters pour out my ears
like some Black Plague fountain
with spitting angels
life can be hard to look at
images spilling into boots
filling with blood and ignorance
everyone a con artist of some sort
on the inside if not the outside
can't be avoided even for...Read More

Uncle Joe 

Here lies my old Uncle Joe.
We sure weren’t sad to see him go.
He ripped off everyone he met.
Now his poor wife must pay his debt.

Unhappy Anniversary
Shaking in trembles, tremor within. 
A delicate pivot, shifts in separation.
Consolation comforts, the loss of win.
My first year of divorce, set in liberation. 

Bushwhacked, travelling back in time..
Reflections,... on dark night window.
Shredded heart, in melancholy chime.
Voice not so dulcet, in...Read More

Premium Member SAVING 7 ITEMS FROM MY BURNING HOME
Oh goodness the house is on fire, 
And so is the one across the street,
And the one next door, I’m scared, 
And frantic and overpowered with smoke!
I hear the fire crackling 
And voices and feel intense heat,
I have to run,...Read More

Or reading this without a NIHONG-GUO dictionary in front of face
Rather I'd say you were the victim of WATENAGE

Imagine being told as a little girl that you are ugly, you are stupid, and that you are a four eyed little freak.

When he gave her a dreadful fright
Ripped off his jumper revealed his string vest
Showing snippets of his hairy chest
He looked at her with eyes ablaze

Dementor's Kiss

Having an obvious proclivity for story-telling,
the old man leaned forward in his chair,
eager to impress the grey-haired men gathered around him
while he continued with the saga of his most peculiar life.
With each slight nuance of his speech
and with every twist...Read More

Reaper's Child
She awakes, terrified and unable to scream
above her, the ugliest creature she'd ever seen
Dirty hand over her mouth, gasping for breath
poor girl so frightened, nearly scared to death

Whispered in her ear, "tonight you'll be my wench"
her, so close to puking,...Read More

Sweet Lorelei was in distress -
an angler’s rod ripped off her dress,
perched high on her rock,
she was sans her frock,
her nakedness she must redress!

She clambered down onto the beach,
to gather seaweed in arm's reach,
then formed a bikini,
(which was rather teeny,)

A Proud Woman

Stars, crisp in the deep plot
pulling off, late snow clouds
clean themselves
The river lets loose the carp,
coughs beneath its frozen part

Drippings on the roof hit the gutter
Ice branches ripped off in wind are waterborne
In the house, a rim of cheese is...Read More

Bruce Banner turned into the Hulk when he got a flu shot.
He turned into the Hulk because it hurt a lot.
He smashed the doctor's office and broke the doctor's neck.
You should've seen that office afterward, it was a wreck.
