Figure me this,  puzzle it out.

Add it all now,  total it for me.

Summing up
Mr MacPherson, a mathematician
Was married to Sally,a keen statistician.
With little division to trigger vexation
Their amical lives led to multiplication.
First Roland, then Harry and then the addition
Of first daughter Jenny, a gifted logician.

The one common factor of great satisfaction
Engendering fervour and...Read More

PEARLY GATES 

I’m brought before Saint Peter,
On display in a clear glass crate,
Nothing hidden up my sleeve,
Except a hammer, I jest to escape. 

He approaches me out of nowhere,
Ask him for a chat while we wait,
Gentle voice replies “of course...Read More

Afloat
I know what it's like
when the water keeps rising,
while the plans that you made
all seem to be revising...
Choose not to drown...
When there's no solid ground 
that your toes can grasp onto,
change is burning your ship
fire smouldering around you...
Choose not to...Read More

Just half a meter away is this semi-covered female
so fertile for a score of trees to grow on
smooth and soft, curvy and oily
a rich landscape for my longings to become playful penguins.
Her body’s map has been possessed by my hunger

The State of Our Land
In living in my homeland over 60 years
so much has changed in all that time
what was acceptable is not now anymore
our grandparents would see it as a crime

Today's world doesn't seem to be like them
standards just don't exist at all

Another Poem On Dress Code Because The School System Didn't Listen The First time
I am better at summing up dress code
Than at summarizing 
The book that I missed three chapters of
Because my skirt was too short

Heck, I never even learned
How to summarize books
Because that was the day
The week
The entire unit 
That I missed...Read More

The King Reigns
Penguins are beautiful creatures
one of the most elegant is the king
second only to Emperor in size
stands up to 100cm an amazing thing

The king's diet comes mainly from the sea
having appetite for lanternfish, squid and krill
so their average weight is so...Read More

A POEM TONIGHT
I wish I can write a poem tonight.
Silent, late summer,
pen a short prose, summing up,
all my smiles and frowns
this weekend long.
And so I wrote.
Ink splashed in my notes
on the replaying echoes I dread to hear.
Prayers I never declared out loud-
May...Read More

Hear That They Have Been Coming
Hear That They Have Been Coming

We heard that they have been coming;
And all the songs they were humming;
TV watch;
Sometimes botch;
Up things about them must be summing.

Still I'm trying
Once upon a time on the Moon
Adventitiously I was.
Close to me various stars were full
Blimey! Was it reality or not?

When I was a child, my mom
Told me stories of the stars.
There was also belief of folk:
That each stars by itself

I still remember
From nine hours on call

Waiting for a single reply
I learned to survive alone

I still remember that long list of promises
Which I gave you on the very first day
It's funny how I...Read More

Holes Has Come Commonly
Holes has come commonly

And she flies, holding the nothing of space, 
Grasping at the nothing of air,
She flies through the cloud, the nothing holding her up, 
Sweeping through all of her hair. 

And her mind disappears for all of the then, 
Vanishing without...Read More

What happened in Vegas
Should not stay in Vegas.

Such a mind-numbing tragedy
cannot be contained, nor constrained
or explained
by a simple 'summing up'.

No, never 'what happened in Vegas'
Should be termed, the new normal
Or the the new acceptance
Of a virulent form of violence

Bugles Blared 

Up everything we had been summing,
Had head's up a threat was coming;
Had been worried,
And we hurried;
Bugles blared and did hear drumming.

These Not Unbroken
After all those years,
I do not expect to find the gate unbroken.
It will be, and will be ajar.
I'll go through it to the house abandoned,
a sullen house, a wrecked out car.

All things will be a trial, so broken,

Trump big idiot rapidly is becoming,
And below 60 intelligence is summing;
Careless mental case,
Who is way off base;
Out of him at all expect exactly nothing.
