School dances! What hateful memories they are,
Dreaded obligatory occasions,
Yours Truly emphatically did not star,
Not being of a social persuasion.

Dreaded obligatory occasions -
Maybe most students thought they were fun,
Not being of a social persuasion,
I would have preferred to miss every one.

Constant liar is what we colluded.

Each given breath you take awakens mine.
From the moment I first felt your...Read More

The mirror is over there
Don't lose the razor blade

Never been this anxious
Paranoia makes me suspicious

You never wrote a poem,

Rehashing History: Some bare facts about Lady Godiva
Lady Godiva wasn't trying to be cute
When she went for that ride in her birthday suit.
It was her husband's taxes she protested
All butt naked and bare breasted.
She only did as he'd suggested, so any argument was moot.

and sell through garage sales,

watch television
you could go to

Daniel Chapters 1 and 2
In the third year of Jehoiakim’s dynasty.
Nebkadazar stepped into Judah’s society
He besieged Judah’s land.
And God allowed him the upper hand.
For the children of God were transgressing
Causing a cursing instead of a blessing.
For numerous years they were in Babylon’s captivity.
