Lab Rat Race
Lab Rat Race - 

Well it’s a hard pill to swallow
that we aren’t promised tomorrow;
but the rent is still due today. 
Sure, you’re losing your mind
but you still made it to work on time;
That’s just the nature of the rat...Read More

When Trump Tweets
(Played to the tune, “When Sly Calls,”
by Michael Franks)

When Trump tweets,
Mo’ scowls furrow

When Trump tweets,
the scandals grow

As rumors shake,
idle sits the Boss
Bankrupt morality
is the grifter cost

When Trump tweets,
the rubles spin

When Trump tweets,
the dictators win

Decorum falls,
indecency begins
And on Fox tv the...Read More

Vomit Monsters
They eat porridge then vomit it up
Dancing when they find carrots
And eat the other’s puke

Till they puke again and again
The sick game they play
For they are elite

And number one
Both gross and lovely
With added sugar

Tom Sharing Aphorisms
(old adages)
Composed: by Miracle Man

I’ve been told, when younger,
”I could start a fight in an empty House.”
Because often “I would cloud up and rain knuckles,”
and later “was a sight for sore eyes”
Sometimes “I just had a conniption fit”...Read More

Premium Member Tasty hors d'oeuvres
The cows, they lowed
   The sheep, they bleated
The pigs, they squealed
   Herded together tight, overheated

Squeezed into lines
   Individuality stripped
Indignity's design
   Poked, prodded, whipped

through airport corridors
  lines stretching forever
making tasty hors d'oeuvres

Premium Member Dreaming About You
Her mind
Reveling like
A sea of glass
As a crystal

As deep as a well
With a satire way
About her, with

A touch of
Love dwelling with
Irresistible ways

Sassy speech with
Spirited walk
Eyes rich and deep 
Blue as the ocean

As two, two carat
Diamonds sparkling
Lips a deep ruby red
Body...Read More

Day of the Dead?
Is it something he said?
America mislead.

Deceived at the top,
Even they eavesdrop.

Lies all around
Our confusion compound.
Shall the truth be found?

Made in USA:
Undercover foray.
Everyone has their say.
RIP simplton.
T####'s reign is done.
Our country has won.
Send him off on the run.
