Premium Member Locks Exist
The locks exist in testament
to the gates that weren’t kept
closed at times life escaped
like the horse of fabled writ

the temptations beyond four walls
outside the barrier that constrains
beckons those who desire
something more than life restrained

equines sadly run amok

...Calvin looked extremely confused,
then smiled knowingly,
said,’I think I can explain this,

and walk to town briskly.

    as the Earth yearned for autumn's heat.
Darkness gave way to a fractured dawn

She was dressed to kill
Hot like a blazing Australian Bushfire
She crackled with heat as she
sashayed through the entrance

How then by trite opinion
should foul ink print its confusion
and in the guise of truth
and the flurry of news
be a rabble of hype
for its own concocted proof

Each lie spread gourmet upon the pallet
televised splattered kaleidoscopic
lays its checkered past of a...Read More

We're gathered here together
to mourn a lack of defence
for one who lies before us
at the death of Common Sense.

His name may be forgotten
his wisdom was no pretence
but rules and regulations
caused the death of Common Sense.

He taught valuable lessons,

Eyebrows and toes curl, causing quite a scandal

It's late Friday afternoon,
Inside I cry 'hooray'
Nearly time to loose the shackles,
Let the devil out to play.

Will appear and run amok,
Just another hour to go
As I look up at the clock.

For liberation's near,
