Shrinks attempted to fix mind flaws
They gorged on cocaine
But primitive brain
Has failed to achieve sacred pause

But Seriously

Never thought I'd get a poet mob,
since I got the best of poetry nod,
life imperiously,
but seriously,
I think I'd better just keep my day job.

No Space For Manoeuvre

I gave him a fake Medicare card,
And he could have honoured my efforts,
But he just scowled and said "You 're out!"
And so I swore to myself to give him bad reports.

Austin Commute

It wasn't so bad this morning
But I arrived an hour early
If I'd left later—
     even a few minutes?
Only the clock will tell
After all
     It's only my first time

There once was a trucking company
Held together with duck tape funny
Repairs a lick and promise
Polished with cloth and Comet
Mechanics work done very subtly

VENDOR

About selling leather in a market -

Valise, or case-selling ...
Each to his own
Noise in distribution,
Dashing to a mike
Or cupping his hands -
Rush of people to his leather stall.

Careful What You Wish For

There once was an ambitious man named Eddie,
who wanted a job in the traveling industry.
The genie granted his wish,
but Ed never expected this;
an employer's note saying, "Welcome to the DMV!"
