Will you be my quarantine
What’s all this
Inch tapes out
Everyone measuring distance
They call it
‘Social distancing’
Never heard
Of any such thing
After all
Man is gregarious 
He, she and us
Add to it
That one more bit 
About ‘Self isolation’
Living all alone
Not a soul around, 
Absolutely none
But wait
This we’ve
Already been practising...Read More

Another Friday has arrived 
No meat I do sigh 
I eat the fishes from Saint Peter’s wishes 
Fried or grill 
The sea food fits the sacrificial concept bill 
Bring the tarter 
For a starter 
While other condiments enhance
This feeding chance...Read More

A Few Words About Vanity

Ageing, sooner or later betrays us
and vanity, supposedly, saves us.
Men, less so, but women especially,
fall prey to its superficiality
with measures used no better than
the least skilled mortician,
and the end results are about
as good as any corpse laid out.
It’s all but...Read More

Corona virus welcome to the UK
Its here the thing we all fear, 
The apocalypse is near,
The devils spurn has risen,
Trapping us in our homes like prisons,

To plague our planet already broken,
Is it retaliating, squeezing our lungs chocking,
Like the black death the plague upon our people,
Swooping,...Read More

If you guessed early, I do not know anything
 I would like to know, on a splendid moment,
A moment that would keep the hearts alive, beating for a soul 
That we would still be believers, 
No one would remind us...Read More

Shoulder Tap

I envy people who die in their sleep.
What better way to slip out of this world?
There is no guarantee, of course, it will 
happen that way with me or you.
What harm in hoping?

Dying in one’s sleep is like outsmarting
death, which...Read More

The Strange Truces of King Arthur
The Strange Truces of King Arthur
by Michael R. Burch

Artur took Cabal, his hound,
and Carwennan, his knife,
and his sword forged by Wayland
and Merlyn, his falcon,
and, saying goodbye to his sons and his wife,
he strode to the Table Rounde.

“Here is my spear,...Read More

Jackal and Hyde Pride
Your passionate, unneeded pride...

Going along with the rowdy ride
Still feeling so low…but I must stay high, you know?

I want to glow bright and grow and not feel this hollow…

Through the PORTAL of historic enterprise,
Which by electronic means I NAVIGATE,
Since, like so many others, I PATRONISE

With solidly TANGIBLE evidence
Of the INTRIGUE of that cruel elimination,
A deed historically immense,
The murder...Read More

My Dog and his Whereabouts

When my dog died, a neighbor lady,
very religious, approached to console me:
“So sorry to hear of your dog’s demise.
“He’s with the Lord,” she said, lifting her eyes
“and in a better place.”  Taken aback
I responded tactfully with no lack
of emphasis:...Read More

Aren't we?
High class my ass
A veneer
That's all it is
Different thicknesses
Undercover libertines 
Counterfeit Charlatans
Not everyone, maybe
But the majority
All the worlds a stage
As you like it right
Not everyone, okay.
Yeah, altruism exists
In its anonymity
Even Mother T. supposedly had her hand in the till

Beyond the Poetry
"Beyond the Poetry"

Grew up on country roads that were dusty
And bumpy
When I was a dummy
My life was crummy
Experienced it first hand, didn't just study
Life's a trip and at times rather funny
But it also got rather ugly and bloody
Days weren't always...Read More
