final curtain
final curtain
by Michael R. Burch

what would u give
to simply not exist—
for a painless exit? 
he asked himself, uncertain.

then from behind
the hospital room curtain
a patient screamed—
"my life! "

Premium Member My Sister's Dog
Love for my sis makes me like her own bolshevik

so, though I'd rather swallow a stranger's lipstick,

I sat her ground-dweller, her dog, named Limerick.

Once, outside while his wiz-biz defied arithmetic, 

I noticed he had one gross, fully plump black tick.

Evil has evolved their hearts through surgery

To all Bible Readers

Bible readers, read but be careful.
Not all therein is beneficial
that is, should be taken too literally. 
Example: ‘turning the other cheek’ 
if done regularly will keep
the face deformed permanently.
So know the saying’s right intent
as it was originally meant.
And while many...Read More

Inordinate amount of leisure time
Might help explain how fruit
full this harmless poetic brute,
(a Methacton School of hard knocks
grad), who sports astute
demeanor with ample
brew netted locks,
vaguely androgynously cute,

his trademark signature hirsute
unstyled wavy hair
tell tale characteristic,
not that I care if anyone
gives rats ass and/or hoot

Premium Member Not The Best Medicine
I disagree that laughter is the best medicine.
I got a hernia from laughing and was in constant pain,
and every time I'd laugh thereafter, the pain returned intensively again.
I've since had corrective surgery, but laughing is not the same.
I'm afraid that...Read More

Insult Added To Injury and Perjury

Trump was an insult added to injury,
And person who  committed perjury;
A total insult,
Is final result,
And his imbecilic brain needs surgery.
