Future Prospects

	Is it possible at once to defeat and be overcome by the disease?
	Such extravagant forebodings dwindle in the fear of moment,
	like a great visitation of the past that dwarfed the mayhem of WWI,
	wonder if libertarians had qualm with “Spanish”...Read More

The Devil Went Back To Heaven, Part III
...At this point Rob stopped, slowly shook his head,
while we all though this whole thing was unreal,
then he said,”The damnedest thing that I saw
was that the Devil, at this point, did kneel.

"The Faces of Man"



The faces of Man
transformative 
held in the hand 
of Mephistopheles 

blood sells white and red
pontificating with two fingers

consuming greed for 
want of everything
they meld into the
curves of their crooked bends

he’s come to collect 
the minds of men

Make Sure That You Do

The same as you

But it was not what I used to do

In the hope you make it through

Premium Member Ouroboros Comes Around Again
Oh, fickle fates
Spring our own ages
Repeating back out upon us
Like jeweled fields found in happy surprise.

Only to find again
Amongst nasty stones and hidden crevices
Crazy heirlooms
Thought buried as lessons from our past.

To never do again.

But then, Evil never sleeps
Or wastes a...Read More

Premium Member He is a Scoundrel a Mutt
He is a scoundrel, a mutt, a con-man, a sleaze.
Keep talking I think.
I love bad boys!

He’ll hurt you, he will not fit in, he is the worst.
I could find something off the street better than that for you.

Premium Member BIRD THAT SINGS IN THE DARK
There is a bird in the morning when the sky is painted black
Who every other bird I’m sure, must think a maniac...

While all her friends are sleeping...heads nestled neath their wings
this bird rises before the rest...and all she does...is sing.

Spiritual Service
Church works will not be in vain, 
Unlike what others believe; 
They say these deeds give no gain, 
The profit they won't receive.

Serving God is not without
Sacrifices and hardship; 
The unbelievers do doubt, 
Avoiding the true worship.

But each Church Of...Read More

Mystery
It’s a
mystery
to be sure;
the dour cure.

I walk
sideways 
through the mist
to get more
wise;
a wish.

The subtle
fishes 
swim
through a stream
of clouds
where my mind
is
kind of
loud.

Were we
to be
less
rather than
more,
we would
trammel
the ivory shore.

You listen,
but
are 
not swayed
to think of 
a brighter 
day.

Never hesitate.

Oh, how our world has changed!

God's Confession
God's Confession

I was sitting along
In a god forsaken bar
Somewhere on the lunatic fringes
Of society

Enjoying my lonely drink
Drinking by my lonesome self
With my partners
Jimmy Dean, and the Walker brother
And his old Granddad
Just drinking and hanging
With the Jack Daniel's gang

A crazed bum

Deceitful memories
Standing in the kitchen, the house is silent.
Mama’s door is shut.  She’s sleeping or hiding

Floral lined stoneware, in faded blue
A cluster of sticky notes, with the day’s “to do”

Two warm, brown pitchers of sweetnlow tea
Daddy must have been here,...Read More
