irony meters blowing gaskets
the Irony meter gasket
is blown again and again
with every statement
of our chaos president

and his endless surrogates
promoting the latest Presidential
on spot guidance by our great leader

says it is so

The President accuses his democratic rival

No matter how big the war 
whether nation against nation or
two men in a bar, the result is the same: 
In my lifetime nearly constant war, and even before. 
And that is just those involving America.

What Happens If We're Wrong- II
We were told that one man and one woman
was outdated, too old, and passé,
that any two souls were entitled to
the chance to go and have their big day,
and while on the individual scale
those couples are of no great concern to...Read More

Polarizing the Populous

Heaven’s tide is far and wide as they manage in their malevolent mockery
Their hands are tied and losing pride, dining without candelabra crockery
In a calamitous chasm their dreams in spasm as they awaken the nightmare
Scrapes of sarcasm thrown...Read More

The Birth and Rebirth in a New Dawn
Steam driven ashes and lava from volcanoes
Obscure tomorrows
Exploding from bean pods and tomatoes
Beseeching and seeking halos

Our lives require
To earn a rebirth
Inspire and inquire
Whether a new berth

Becomes of the essence
In the path the future offers
Despite the intensive care unit defence
Happiness in...Read More

Fort Prop G Company


Ten campaign soldiers
marching in a straight line
One took a sound byte mine misstep,
then there were only nine
Nine loyal watchmen
guarding the golden Tower gate
One fell asleep and plummeted to the ground,
dereliction of duty gave an even eight
Eight secret cell spies,
set to...Read More

Who is the real threat to America?
The Mexicans? The illegal immigrants? The Muslims?
Or the Manchurian Candidate in the White House?

Anybody who has ears to hear and brain to think critically
and is not a clone of the Republican Congress' mindset,

 Never seen a day light for quondam

Meet me here angel surrogates
for i have allowed my eyes to consume your make

You bayonetted me with a warm grin,

punctuated my wholeself with your pulchritude,
encacerated me with your decency

Newt hid out in the buckeye state
Nothing tonight added to his slate.

He slams the fed and wild crowds cheer.

The Things
Art must mount a full-scale attack on language itself,
by means of language and its surrogates, on behalf of the standard of silence.
Susan Sontag.

Confessions of an Insomniac
In the wee small hours of the morning
When sleep will not oblige itself to come
One thought leads to another and yet another
And my brain will not surrender deliberation
Until morning

Emotions so fickle when the shadows of night 
Permeate my bedroom
Thoughts during...Read More

She Who Watches, Waits
She who watches, waits upon
the dreaming rock and drinks
  the panorama cast before;
she who waits, watches for
the setting sun and ponders at
  the well of night forever more.

Guardian of the soil and air,
the fire hearth and waters
