Just as I Suspected
Come to an End, all these Good Things
(Youth and Hope and splendored Springs)
But, how can I ask for Fortune's to pass
When I've cut my throat, but still wish to sing...?...

Ebenezeer Scrooge
Ebenezeer Scrooge
Suspected subterfuge,
And his transformation seems extreme
For what was probably just a nightmarish dream!

For Andrea’s Christmas Clerihew contest...

Premium Member Sandra Intimidated Men
Sandra was enchanted and glamourous
Men were intimidated
Giddy when meeting her

Her winsome winning ways delighted them
None of the lot suspected
It was women she liked...

As We Suspected With Trump Connected
As We Suspected With Trump Connected

We always knew and surely suspected,
With Trump they had been connected;
A breath taker;
Trouble maker;
Debts he has needing to be collected.

There was a florist in southern McNungus
Sloppily smeared with soil humongous. 
Customers suspected something was wrong
When proof arrived indisputably strong:
His ears displayed five varieties of fungus.

Tongue's Tangeled Trap
That fatal slip
tongue's tangled trap
bites back
revealing duplicitous
whispered coos; confessions
of brilliant, enthralling lies
suspected, yet undetected 
like a prized peach pit,
her name is slip spit;
intended as that
of mine.

Premium Member Venetian masks
Mysterious masks.
Motives suspected.
Whispered invitation.
Dance confirms intentions.
Low hanging Venetian fog
floats through narrow streets.
Distant music from St Marks Square
drifts to rooms above.
Feelings unmasked.
Gondolas rock softly....

The blast of his words unexpected.
The spoil underneath t’was suspected.
“I can’t ring the bell.
I’m buried in hell.”
The bones of the tape were projected.

Premium Member Anatomy of a Cover-up
A misstep detected
His image affected
PR staff directed
Positive spin injected

The slip-up rejected
An opponent suspected
To torture subjected
The slander corrected

Unanimously, as expected
The President re-elected
Foul play unsuspected
Threat now deflected...

Premium Member Rumpelstiltskin Thought He Would Get Baby

Rumpelstiltskin's temper pronounced.
So many hard feelings he flounced.
Suspected maybe
He would get baby
Spun gold for no reason. Was trounced.

Premium Member planning suicide
planning suicide
feeling as an outcast does
giving away toys

no one suspects him
feeling of euphoria
joyful decision

funeral is sombre
signs were there but no one saw
per his careful plan

did not know they said
never suspected a thing
sorry reflection

Chimps make me smile coz they resemble Uncle George It's probably only a coincidence but I've long suspected his heritage So I wouldn't bet the farm on it But he does enjoy roaming the forests Climbing trees in search of any confirmation of his parentage

Premium Member Congressional Expose'
There once was a congressman named Weiner

   Suspected of exposing his 'wiener'

      Of course he claimed no knowledge

         Oh yeah! Claimed girl in college

            He could be charged with a misdemeanor

A normal day,
A boy sits down with his friends,
He sets his bag down.

They talk about plans,
Ans what's happening later,
They're all unaware.

The day turns drastic,
No one would have suspected,
That this would happens.

A gun is fired,
Into a group of students,
Their plans  are ruined.

My condolences....

Premium Member Monkey Thief
There once was a thief from Indiana
Who specialized in stealing bananas---
   He was lithe and thin
   And moved like the wind---
In a monkey-themed yellow bandana

He struck when it was least suspected
Stunning each victim he selected---
   Quickly in and out
   They had no time to shout---
Darn monkey!  I'll have you dissected!

Right I Was
"You are lost!" they mocked me........

I believed that everyone
has his or her own sense of style in living,
but they regarded me as a clown.

I did not follow fashion, religion or what
my fears about people's thoughts told me;
asylum was thought to be a perfect abode
for me; drugs were suspected to be my close company.......

"You were right!" they tell me NOW!...

Psychotic Vacation
We drove for hours with no motel in sight
We rejoiced to see the vacancy light

   Bates Motel seemed deserted
   Its manager perverted

At least we had a bed to spend the night

He gave us the key to room number one
Suggested a shower would be such fun

   He'd an Oedipus complex
   And we suspected his tricks

So before Norman returned we were gone

Her Secrets
so many words
what is the meaning
the pattern 
why does she cry
why does she beg
or plead
so many secrets
hidden in the words
hidden in plain sight
did you notice
did you see
all these words
all the memories
silly little boy
you thought you knew
thought you held the secrets
you never suspected
never saw it coming
silly little boy
stop the lies and face truth
it's all for nothing 
and soon she'll be gone...

Premium Member Prettiest of the Pretties
She had the utmost prettiest of pretty things
Ruby bracelets, broaches of garnets, diamond rings
Some looked up to her because of her fancy clothes.
Who these thinkers were providence only knows.
I waited for her to make her move, not yet impressed.
She was all of that, beautiful, and gorgeously dressed.
I suspected she would be vile, selfish, insanely mean.
But instead she had kindness such as I had never seen.

Premium Member American Gulag
I've been distributing DVDs about how 9/11 was an inside job.
Now I'm on my government's watch list as a suspected enemy combatant.
I may possibly end up in an American Gulag.
Check the lower right hand corner of your boarding pass 
whenever you happen to fly.
If you see "SSSS," 
you're also on the watch list 
and a suspected enemy combatant just like I.

My Wanted and Least Wanted List
My wish is that people could feel acceptance,
And the world as their common domain,
Would experience a natural belonging.
Like the leaves to the trees, to the terrain;
A part of something greater.
That individual differences were interesting and accepted,
Rather than a cause for prejudice or pride;
And with judgment set aside, no one is rejected.
Misjudged, suspected, ignored and dismissed--
Are all part of my least wanted list.

May my country awake
A mob gathered in a flash
Chanting God's name
They lynched one dead
Suspected of eating beef

A mob gathered in a flash
Swinging in bigoted fervor 
They hung two by a tree.
Accused of smuggling cows

A mob gathered in a flash
Swords flashing in hands
They slashed one beyond shape
Alleged of loving upper caste

Violence ,mahyem goes on 
Common men silent onlookers 
castrated beyond redemption 
India, my country , awake !!!

Card Counting Actor
A big Hollywood star decided to go to play some blackjack at a Las Vegas casino. The management did not like what was going on. Suspected of card counting, the actor was gone. This episode appeared in need of a reality check. How does one keep track of aces and tens in each deck? The scene presented itself to be unclear and quite mucky. Is it not permissible for patrons to get lucky? From a news story found on

My Best Friend
Every day we made a life pact 
We will make it for a friend fact 
The very first day she touched me 
You saw my lonely heart set free

The day my mortal body broke 
I saw you by me in the smoke 
Painful healing nearly broke me 
You again reminded me of we 

The day she broke my faithful heart, 
we never spent a day apart 
Gluing the pieces together 
I knew together forever 

In the mirror I reflected, 
it was me, as I suspected

Wise Man
Wise Man

Just as the leaves begin to fall 
He gazes knowingly down at his crystal ball 
Just as he suspected after this summer long 
He’d be alone for awhile so to collect his thoughts 
He’s not damaged or timid 
Nor wicked at all 
He’s just known since he was very young 
That silence is better than fighting the cause 
Of what happened to what now is gone 
So now he bawls as he stands tall 
Like the trees around him
As their leaves fall
