Time to sort my trash.
And then they tell me "Rinse it off",
they charge the bill for cash.

What Is That Taste In My Mouth

No warning.
BOOM!

The taste spread swiftly
around the room.

Eyes scour.
They pinpoint the doom.

A little old lady
Who's big on perfume.

money

a cent, I feel puny
a nickel, I shine
and the dime you gave me 
as I asked for the time
the dollar to be earned 
to make a pile but not a shield.

Someone's Been Reading Sartre

... to exist is to settle like dust a thin film percolates, a pining gust strips skin and static so long a crust ... atoms touch atoms, rust to rust

The Squawker

Squawking all the day; cackling hen, ruler of the roost. 
The others chit-chat; gossiping chickens having a party.
Cackler disagrees with all that’s being said and is ignored.

Knickers - for contest

The clothing she wears is obscene,
And knackered her washing machine,
She washes by hand,
But please understand,
Her knickers are never too clean...

for Jan's Limerick contest

Short Pollution poem by Robert Sturgill| Details |

Boulevard, USA

Fluorescent signs shout
     "Liquor" and "XXX,"
cardboard boxes
     hold the land hostage,
pushers and prostitutes
     pirouette
with survival
     their only choreographer.

Goldilocks Planet

What great fortune, this goldilocks system;
If by Creator, most of us missed him.
When swine have every drop of profit squoze,
The Earth shall be veiled, and all of us froze.

Short Pollution poem by Julia Ward| Details |

Clouds of DDT

Playing to clouds of DDT
the children ran screaming into it -
hurried playtime in the mist...

Ten minutes of forbidden fog,
forgetting that it was forbidden...
Glorious, thickened, smoky smog.

In DC

In DC
By Franklin Price
4/6/2015

In DC the House and the Senate
Our confidence they cannot win it
They don't try as they might
They just fuss and they fight
Our country to hell try to send it

New Zealand Virus

New Zealand has a virus
Inside the green delight
Sliming up the beaches
Burrowing at night
I asked a local dolphin
When it would come right?
But before I got her answer
She had taken flight

I am sitting inside my smart TV set with my wireless remote control

I am sitting inside my smart TV set 
with my wireless remote control 
and I can’t seem to get my wireless remote control 
to work for me
can someone out there 
please keep on  changing the channels for me 
to something else
