Love Goes Around
I love shark, bass, ling, king, and flounder 
They make me a little rounder

I need not
these whoremoans
nor this 
baby baking box
nor does my lover
need me flopping
like a flounder
on the docks...

Sending Waves
My feelings flounder
like a sky of dying stars
already snuffed out
yet still sending waves of light
to haunt my heart at midnight...

Flounder From the little mermaid
I am Flounder, wild and young.
I flap my fins and love to have fun.
And sometimes when I eat bad algae,
I make the water a little bit bubbly!...

twilight time

     at deserted shore ~

Holy crapola, depends on who we are Some grab the brass ring and swing from a star Others flounder about Dribble from the mouth But at the very least, life's still quite bizarre

The Tempest
The tempest

Rising storms, the tempest rise
Facing foes, that have arrived.
Foes unseen in daylight’s rise.
Backs toward the sun we ride,
To realize steel has lost its might,
We flounder back, lost in our plight.

Divorce Court
Ecclesiastical is this 
Problem now. 

And I wish to expel
Sentiments of fluff
that flounder and burrow

So sugary but
Stale is the taste
You spilled on my 

As the time ticks
Fast and furious
I deserve an escape....

What's the consensus bout the existence of aliens My take on the subject is their all homo sapiens Dressed in white sheets With enormous big feet Smelling like skunks and flounder simultaneous

Beckon and Dead Reckon
Beckon and Dead Reckon 

I hear quaint calls that do beckon;
Determine direction must dead recon,
To find out angle where coming from;
Catch flounder, dolphin and some drum,
And need right equipment for detecting.

The aroma of 
butter fried flounder

The scent of
her stir fried veggies
and the odor of 
that organic brown rice

How dare I not
baptize this write
when truth
is in each bite 

Put pen to paper
I will,
at last sip of this white !...

When We Rise Each Morning
When we rise each morning 
We face yet, another day
It is another opportunity 
To enhance your mind greatly in every way 
There are more lessons to learn 
By the minute and hour 
We take in everything at face value 
In order not to flounder...

Nothing To Say
Nought, zero, nix, blank
Out of information
To impart with no
Heroics to present
Idolized in prose.
Nubilous words flounder
Growing into a mishmash of

Total nothingness.
Opine this silly

Sentiment anyway
As if
You'all are even listening....

Man and wife are at opposite ends of the scale When it comes agreeing on what's important in life, we fail Obsessed with crumbs on the counter Berates him till into a battle they flounder Life's too short to worry about crumbs for peace to prevail

I think Jack wants me fat.
In fact I am sure of that.
I always ask for one scoop.
Waistlines expand with that gloop.
He insists on giving three.
All for the same fee.
Poor, poor pitiful me.
I can't resist you see.
Peanut Butter Cup counter.
The place where I always flounder.

Clouds flounder in the sky,
the vast blue stretching into the ocean
where they collapse into one another,
eliminating the horizon from the view
of the naked eye.
Upon the first Frost of the season,
shades of blue fade to grey-
and the horizon remains hidden
beneath the infinite haze of mortal vision....

Premium Member Bewildered
Thrown asunder in bewilderment 
       I list like a ship in a catatonic sea
                   inert in a perplexed state of confusion 
             thoughts drift in and out, going nowhere 
     unable to move forwards or backwards 
I flounder helplessly in uncharted waters.

Market Day
Hustle bustle
all the day;
chitter chatter
all the way.

Pitter patter
goes the feet;
credit debit 
watch them fit.

Ponder wonder,
goes the mind;
"holla! did i
make a find?"

Whimmy whammy
swing the gates;
flimmy flammy
"we're in haste!"

Blunder Flounder
through the gates;
helter skelter
what a waste!...

I've wasted abundant time glancing back,
Surveying moments I might now reshape.
Muddled vision is my present day track,
From thoughts of the past I've no escape.

Dwelling on opportunities once I wasted,
Is akin to displaying an attitude of defeat.
I oft reminisce the good times tasted,
Then left to flounder craving their repeat.

From the inhibition of war,
a dolorous situation
might have caused
the child neophyte,
untried in love,
to flounder
before lecherous men whose bombast
and sexual smoulder would despoil her,
but providence,
and true love
little Spanish Juana
met and married Captain Smith,
and, apparently,
they lived happily ever after...

The Writer
He thought that maybe
he was a writer.
That it would make
all their futures
a little bit brighter.
But that’s not going to
put food on the table.
Unless he writes another
Kane and Abel.
Encouragement is
scarce on the ground
and so he begins to flounder.
Questions his methods
and his abilities.
Realises it is time
to wake up to his reality....
