She romped and rolled around me in proud stiff pompous gait
I was not impressed by the ruffle of her skirt
Or the wicked laughter of the flipping imp
But I pulled up short for a word choked me,in heart,straight.

One does not have to die to be a hero,
Though many heroes paid the ultimate price,
That is but one among many scenarios,
Of steel, faith, valor and noble sacrifice.

Heroes dwell in neighborhoods across the land,
Who work on weekdays in many vocations,

They had gathered from all around
With special invitation in hand
No professional was allowed
To take part in this grand

Just your every day, run of the mill
Person without culture or fame
Putting their baking skills to work
In hopes of being named

Concerto D'amor
Concerto D'amor

Whenever I'm with you, 
Other things are amnesia. 
Every single moment with you, 
Suits decades in a catatonia. 

If you were Bermuda triangle, 
I'd often tread on the blast of shangri-la;
A picnic in the devil's triangle, 
Run-of-the-mill than millenniums...Read More

Donald Trump, an American businessman
owner of beauty pageants and high rises
a billionaire with a flamboyant personality 
became 45th President of the United States.
His campaign; fraught with controversy
accusations of sexual misconduct
for which he made a public apology,
yet the left was certain...Read More

Can I Kartel You
You think you're Godzilla 
but you're just a Gorilla,
that's what happens when you've got gonorrhea,
my skin colours vanilla
my skills are killa and real
you're run of the mill, a fail

If Time Stood Still
If time stood still
If life was not such a run of the mill
The world would be a better place
Equality and kindness
Towards each and every race

Wars of all sorts;
Chemicals, diseases,
weapons of mass destruction 
Leaders of the world
Have us all under abduction

My hat, How petty can you get
The reason that she didn’t come to my last poetry reading
Was that I had but faintly praised her hat.
It was a monstrous thing which  Mrs. Thatcher,
 the Queen most certainly, would have shunned.
It was sort of like a jerry-built...Read More

Premium Member NEW DAY DAWNING
The alarm chimes,to signal another new day
Get up,shave,shower,ready for the fray;
Low,listless,muted, a bit downcast
Dullness ahead,my mood overcast.

I see the mundane,routine,run-of-the mill
Feeling pedestrian,static, is the world's standing still;
Hours of monotony,ennui,the tedious banal
Soporific,wearisome yet seeking a rationale.

Glipmsing a future,empty,featureless and humdrum
My solid...Read More

Premium Member 'Heroes' Out Beyond the Breakers
As a child I went surfing at Freshwater Beach in Sydney
Renowned for its great waves, 
Swell waves for body surfing.
Beyond the breakers, furthest out, were the 'Heroes'
Old, leathery tanned surfers who waited hours and hours for 'the wave of the...Read More

I met a deer

I met a deer a big brown deer.
We met in the dark. 
Not as friends just a run of the mill meeting.
I had to stop but it was too late 
The meeting was over and the deer...Read More

A Love Undefined
A Love Undefined 

I, a passing thought
In a dream, perchance, 

In the spotlight, caught 
By your fleeting glance 

Where my body did distort 
Like an awkward dance,

A spasm to thwart 
Our ridiculous romance. 

You, infatuation, 
A beauty to behold,

The alarm signals another day,
what lies ahead, my mood overcast
I feel static, the world's standing still
sophorific,wearisome seeking a rationale
Why why can't men cry?
My solid facade, ready to succumb
feelings held tight within,
what lies ahead, can I still win?
Each day's a surprise,...Read More

Think Of Something Light

Think of something light 
Mesmerising and bright
Nothing of substance 
it's hollow
that oracle of Apollo 
Bountiful, abundant thrill
Painless grinding 
run of the mill
Pre-digested, indulgent, 
surplus protraction
More to come, this 
colourful distraction
Sit, rapt, 
comfortably duped
The way some giant spoon 
has scooped...Read More

My friend could tell from his first glance
I had a ho hum attitude full of happenstance
After being to the point yet matter of fact
And in each poem myself I would enact.

Casa Azul
Frida and Diego’s house
Had walls of cobalt blue.
Today it’s a museum and
Their paintings are on view.

I didn’t go to Mexico
To visit their collection,
But at the Garden, got to see
A limited selection.

The cactus plants in ochre pots
Arranged in artful ways
Allowed me...Read More

I'm just a regular guy with a regular job,
Just your average, run of the mill suburbanite slob.
I drive really slow in the ultra-fast lane,
while motorists behind me are going insane.
I use public toilets and I urinate on the seat

Is this a Halt?, or is this only a full stop

I think I'd need a Catapult to reach the top
