Asymmetric war
Saudi Arabia has more weaponry they can handle
A small country with a few drones crippled them
And the USA sends more weapon and troops
That is useless in this type of warfare.
The armament industry has been fed and

Why must you jump; 
Jump jump stop;
Hump hump; 
Git off that trunk;

You clutch purses hold your pockets;
You come a running;

chased in the night by their dreams

good friends in separate houses
chased by monsters in their dreams

Why the world spins around
Shyness of life courage of death
voice that rumbles inside your head 
and burdens like wormwood on weakened chest
or a spring bowl full of uneaten fruits 
beside the dead man’s bed

blind clairvoyant cursed with blessings
and all the sages of the wise...Read More

“Home is Blue Dust”
Running scared
Running down, body covered
Colliding with and torn root
Feeling fallowing hands and knees
Bear grow bellows behind
Prey moves faster
Harder to see
Bear claws dig into dirt
Increasing speed
The human moves mouth full of dead pine
Running is fast confusing

In the violent storm
there is complete ruin everywhere
the clouds take on a bigger form
as there is no place to calmly breathe air
running scared with regretful tears, lightning advances strong
though miraculously, a seraph caught the powerful spark
crushing it, she disperses the...Read More

Empty Barrel

These days, you just gotta be so aware,
always on the alert ... busy looking around
Harm you might step into, so sniff the air ...
dog trouble’s out there laying snares down

Even when things appear harmless as can be,
keep a sharp watch...Read More

Something out there is chasing me

Something out there is chasing me,
In the centre of a busy Town.
Malicious Red mist only I can see,
Why am I naked, from waist down?

People oblivious to my plight,
Don’t appear to know I’m there.

she wants to fall in love
but she does not dare
running alone

she wants someone to love and to love her back 
but there is too  on the line too much too risk

Who is the bear;
That is running scared?
Taken what is not his
What it is, what it is;
Telling you what's good for you
And what's not
Drinking portage and hemlock (what)
And who is the lion
whose got the people crying
Saving grace has no place for...Read More

Two o'clock she hits me hard

Not as hard as you leaving 
hitting me straight between the eyes 
stars spinning right after midnight

What he's saying they resent saying things no one else had dared

The Truth Will Out
The Truth Will Out

Every dog has its day,
But soon enough it will fade away.
When its day has been and gone,
You will see I’ve done nothing wrong.
It won’t be long until you realise,
I’ve been painted by a thousand lies.
Don’t look at...Read More

Running scared, humour
This morning’s run began so benign and gentle,
Yet 15 minutes later deep feelings were unhinged,
Confused, I recalled my latest meals,
Whilst my insides were impinged.
Aghast, I sensed the futility,
Of my plight against this ongoing urge,
With jalapeno pizza making itself heard,
From...Read More

I am a refugee
Can you see me
I am not Australian 
Not of your nation
I'm fleeing, I'm running, I'm running scared
I'm tired of running 
How far have I come
To find a new home?
My babies, my woman I've left behind 
With promises...Read More

A Specter Speaks To War
 Smoke rising from the ground
Obscures the pools of blood
Where soldiers uttering sounds
Lie dying in the mud.
Horses neighing, running scared
In horror find no end
Of battleground that's shared
The crimson life of men.
A bugle lies still tightly clenched
In fingers cold as night
Plays...Read More

I'm scared

No music is here
This is where lives have played
Played out the last laugh
Played out a last cry
You can see it their cold eyes
You can hear it in their silent cries
That taste in the stale air of lost love...Read More

Please God
Please God come to us now
make the hurt of the world go away,
there's too much pain here, Lord
hearts are being lead astray.

There's been too much violence
many lives being torn in two,
earthquakes, floods, sink holes
that's just to name a few.

Burns night - My Toast to the Lassies
Well, it’s thanks to my friend, Neillie, that I'm standing here today;
He captured me down at his shop as I reached out to pay.
He said, “I have a job for you, and you've twelve weeks to prepare.”

Running blind, Running scared.
 Darkness, emptiness, trapped.
 Emotions bleeding, dripping, leaking out.
 A dam, a wall, a box I've built.
 Crumbling, folding, shredding fast.
 Running blind, Running scared.
 A touch, a look, a kiss.
 Floating, flying, soaring.
 Waiting, wondering, am...Read More
