Premium Member THE BULLDOG STROLLS
The fearsome Bulldog strolls 
as a robust reminder
to those exhibiting various traits 
of hooligan grinder.

He keeps a close watch 
for surreptitious acts of malice
from those who sneak a peek 
then retreat to their palace.

Kings and Queens 
who flaunt their gargantuan...Read More

Yin Yang Boomerang
Primordial ooze, bathtub booze, and unaligned chi
I've got nothing to lose, I see through the ruse, because I am free
I see the faintest glimmer begin to grow dimmer but I've got nowhere to be
While doubt slowly simmers hope also shimmers...Read More

Contagion ceremoniously weaves its harvest into a fabric of un-social inclusion
Haunted by lack of humility and lost serenity it serenades through the masses
In God We Trust but who listened to Nietzsche who proclaimed that she is dead
Lest we believe that...Read More

I see it, little one ...
In the magic of your eyes -
'Tis the world, blooming wondrous!
Bright, dazzling dreams of a midday meadow,
A softened sweep of butterfly wings, azure-bound,
The warm, wobbly mud of a May puddle,
And a kiss, stolen from your...Read More

Oh great eye of darkness 
Pour down milky glow 
My beacon of brilliance 
Begin the creep show 

Come my precious orb of night
Above the shroud of inky fright
Beam my silent pumpkin moon
Guide us as we mount our brooms

There is nothing chivalrous about a sniper
There is nothing chivalrous about a sniper.


In days of yore, when the rain did pour;
Inside an inn, they spoke of was and when.
Even then their present was defined by their history,
As they prepared to march off to war again.

Premium Member Surreptitious Storming -SOS
Within the still of the seismic storms,
are voices lost of exhausted echoes…
Where words diminutively degrade,
amidst the condescending copious cyclone;

For upon the swarms of silent whispers,
mounting with ranting ruins of meadows moss…
And in the distance sacrificial screams are heard,
thus they faintly...Read More

Under blood red skies
A mystery surrounds the stranded boat
Deserted in the shallow marshy fen,
And surreptitious rumours are afloat   *
Which bubble to the surface now and then.

A lad of good repute had claimed to see
Three people cast off late one afternoon,
But strolling...Read More

The pasture smiled and gave its blessing nearby the sacred gentle river

Solemn sun sent tender rays through the moisture of dispersing clouds

Shadows of dawn had turned into a clement plethora of infinite shades 

A bristlecone pine oozed sap and nourished...Read More

Premium Member Blissful Ignorance
Breaths of darkness percolate through the ether,
Hades’ fingers crawl into every corner,
Evil’s creep is silent and surreptitious,

    Meanwhile - we party!

Lip Bent Overly Yours

Most dastardly
Executive Majesty,
we serve at your pique pleasure
obsequiously so 

Yea, Darth Lord,
we be the surreptitious, servile ones:
Leper skin publicans, publicly hiss reviled

Tonsil rear ends torqued low 
is our mealy-mouth status quo

We’re liquored up lap dogs

Always lip bent overly yours

scarlet umbrella
The tempting thought I just could not dismiss
To share with you one surreptitious kiss.
A brief, flirtatious moment of delight,
Snatched furtively and hidden out of sight.

The red umbrella camouflaged all shame
As if accomplice to our fickle game.
But passion soon subsided, like...Read More

Tiny Bird
Oh! Tiny bird your time is brief
But you have life and must believe
That life is every choice

Oh! Tiny bird your spirit smiles
And unpretentious song beguiles
When you in hymn rejoice

In simplest sincerity
Unconditional, absolute

Or flitting frenzy darting free
In surreptitious revelry
Frenetic,...Read More

Escaped! furtive glances
   Manifest of enchanted trances
Arrested by crimson faces averted
   Too soon, too soon, they'd flirted

The air yearned with sensation
    Surreptitious, delicious anticipation
Peering deeply into each other's eyes
   Too soon,...Read More

Machiavellian Machinations

Treachery is the coin of the covert realm,
gears within gears turning ...
Devious machinations, pure Machiavellian

Tool and Die maker,
what instrument of inflection deception
will you darkly wield?

Skilled in the art of misdirection,
fake exit wounds

Demure young maiden
A bucolic bungalow
A fallen hero

Situation hot
Gray thick diaphanous smog
Cannot cool it

A quick surreptitious
Fine country wedding

The bride adorned with daisies
Murmurous rumors

A nonchalant groom
A sempiternal set up
Quintessential joy

Epitomy and Symettry of Trump Stupidity
Epitomy and Symettry of Trump Stupidity

We started being  enveloped by epitome,
Of what did turn out to be the symmetry,
Not countable;
Unsurmountable,
Amount of Trump's  surreptitious stupidity.

Seize the second swirl away seizure’s silent convulsions

Why is it, today?
Is it the demons playing games again in the ethereal realms?
Are they yet again trick-or-treating hidden hoof to helm?

At the inventive sight you hide within,
Calling forth the smokeless fire,
