Extremely moderate advice on the consumption of slightly poisoned food




The god of this world is not wholly
Wholly good or wholly evil.
He does his best to avoid extremes.
With his cornucopia he feeds the paying multitudes
While the rest discreetly hunger. He nourishes,
Admixing with good food insignificant,
That is – as far as...Read More

Rudolph's nose shines frosty bright,
Relations will be cool this night
He raps a hoof on Santa's door
And says we feel we should earn more

If we're to work on Christmas day
We must insist on double pay
And if we do not get...Read More

Premium Member Before Homosapiens

Some say aliens inhabited the earth
Before homosapiens appeared
Pretty sure some are still living amongst us
Been running the country for years

Some of these yahoos are out of this world
With no correlation to reality
“We the people” was a great new idea
Though it...Read More

It's fun to dream of 'better,' but just how? The way's not clear,
For 'better' might cost something that impacts our evening beer!
Now Donald (and the gullible) all tell us they're in charge,
Although I wonder if that's true? The future's looming...Read More

Swimming Against the Tide

The easy option tempts us into going with the flow,
To drift downstream, and gently dream, there is no need to row.
As life is fine, just toe the line, untroubled and carefree,
No need to rock the boat, in...Read More

No rocking the boat, it don't do no good
Things won't get better in all likelihood
Just go with the flow
No need for blows
Things will always go on as they should

Rock the boat, tilt the world,

Lead the direction, brighten my path, 

Hold my arm, far from the edge, 

Tell me lies...Read More

It's the most beloved and recited Scripture

And its no wonder that as human beings
The number 23 has significant too
For it's the number of pairs of chromosomes

Feed the Poor
A billion people, give or take
starving around the world
On the "news", trucks filled with food
not handed out, just hurled

People fight like animals
for scraps of what is left
Fifty trucks suppose to show
from one there was no theft

Families of all those with...Read More

End On A High Note
N-inth of July early morn
I-s leaving the night behind; 
C-old chilling raindrops
A-re causing you a worried mind.

I-s a fine sight to see.

Americal Coat
D-awn nineteenth January
O-pens the day with light;

Clime Changes, Faith Remains
C-lime changes, faith remains
O-ctober seventh early light; 
R-ain in torrents causes flood
E-ven during the day or

Over and over and again and again
“Don’t rock,” can infect the brain
Unclog my head: harvest the grain

Words Eating At My Soul
Be quiet, don't rock the boat, do you really have to go there...
Yes I do, I am alive with words.
Alive because of words.

Silence for this writer is a cage without an exit.
An excellent way to drive me mad.
Unspoken they fester...Read More

Two days away and closing fast
Next Tuesday's chance will be the last
To cast your vote for president 
The future White House resident

Only two still have chance
To wear this country's leader's pants
Neither one is much admired
Yet Tuesday...Read More

If All in Washington buried heads
