The Dark Lord
All things good and va-a-aluable,
all progress great and small,
all folks small and ma-a-alleable,
the Dark Lord ate them all.

Defied the constitu-u-ution
launched media attacks, 
abated persecu-u-ution,
of Mexicans and Blacks.

Colluded with the Ru-u-ussians,
told 15,000 lies,
shrugged off the repercu-u-ussions,
discredited his spies.

Caused economic ru-u-uin,

Premium Member Critterary Verses: How the Kangaroo Got Its Name
When Australia was still the "land down under",
And British folks first lit upon its shores,
They found nearly naked people there
And stared at them in wonder,
As well as dingoes, emus, wallabies, and more.
One animal they deemed most fascinating
Because it jumped so...Read More

A birdie in a palm tree was singing happily

I opened up to have a look

The Sun glittered on the Sea

This Yellow bird flipped over and over

Birds do not know our Puzzles
Birds... they do not know our Puzzles
For us they are a Mystery
Large, kindhearted birds 
in the tree of Sapience
do not tremble against time
or momentary dangers -
endless examinations await them

  Outside the doors
Some birds pray in silence, wholeheartedly  ...Read More

POEM- 9/9/2015-

The old waltz
A musician played the waltz
So long ago... circling them... so blithely forgotten
Like and next one...
And sweeping them waltz in the eternity...
Gone all of a sudden... on canvas and all the paint had suddenly gone out
And definitely no one around......Read More

Sloe Gin
Feb-ru-ary –
Snow-white blossom,
Winter hedgerow shining.

Now September –
Hedgerow harvest:
Sloe-black, slow, black,
Black fruit with purple bloom.

Sloe gin, slow, gin,
Let the alchemy begin.
Blackthorn, black fruit,
Steeped in finest London gin.

Locked in Kilner
In dark cupboard.
Wait till dark December ......

Ruby colour,
Rich aroma.
Delicious sip,
Christmas dinner nip.

Married to a Nigerian Man

I will continue to fight Immigration in that regard

Taking the false for the true
Taking the false for the true,

Shall I drink this stellar dew?
