Up In Arms
I'm up in arms...
But there are no alarms...
There will come to me no harms,
Because those arms,
Belong to you....

NESTLING
Words are mine. 
Otherness will prevail.
I will call you.

Faraway in dark
I will wake up in arms 
of a feeling.

A little yellow-
bird has made her home
in the glass window.

There once was a fellow named Jack For poetry he sure had a knack He'd throw in some smut Up in arms they'd erupt But Jack said I don't give a crap © Jack Ellison 2013

I have rights, but oft times
A chosen wrongs
That gives me burns
I have weights that I can't lift
Up in arms, needless worries
Timid and bold
This story told
I 've chosen wrong...

Limerick: Once a mum Mademoiselle rode in a Metro

           for Heather M.

Once (a) mum Mademoiselle rode in (a) Metro
Felt snug and dozed dreaming of Brando
Lights went out, the train stopped
Coach temperature dropped
She woke up in arms of Eskimo.

An Initial Post-Marriage Poem
O invisible sympathetic listener
Will it annoy my elder Hitler-sister-in-law?
(O my colleague! An Arabian teacher, mocked English
and fought me for its ambiguity);
I mean my wife’s sister.
Like the Jerusalem
With ‘What Must Be Said ’!
Or but to stop this stupid self is …!
If I say I respect her,I kiss her on lips
And eyes,
Lift her up in arms
And wrestle …!
But to detest someone so dearly loved,
Or forget —
Seems unworkable …!...

RESOLUTIONS

my resolutions?
i don’t dare think how many
so?  won’t make any

two thousand thirteen
will come with january
fade – february

just like all the rest
predictions are numerous
cartoons humorous

politicians bad
the voters all up in arms
sick of d.c. charms

prices going up
wages quite stationary
unemployed many

uncared for homeless
with their numbers increasing
and rich desisting

i’ll sit by and watch
expectations will be few
all in all what’s new?

Steal A Kiss Sounds Ludicrious
Steal A Kiss Sounds Ludicrous 

Maybe exact point pretended to miss
But from a widow lady, steal a kiss
I even heard it was early one morning
And it was done without warning.

Neighborhood is up in arms complaining
And would do a thing with no training
A hold of himself he had to get
Must go to court and have to admit.

Was on front page and magazine cover
How he looked like being a lost lover
It was discovered that he had dementia
And court released him in abstentia.

Alabama
If I lived in Alabama
I would so much disapprove
Of the attitude towards women
That I’d simply have to move.

There’s a revolution coming
And, despite those southern charms,
Many Alabama females
Should right now be up in arms.

For to challenge a decision
That’s been law for many years
Proves that women’s low-class status
In that state still perseveres.

I’ll not visit Alabama;
I don’t know why someone would
But I hope there will be protests
And perhaps they’ll do some good.
