Premium Member Anatomy of a Cover-up
A misstep detected
His image affected
PR staff directed
Positive spin injected

The slip-up rejected
An opponent suspected
To torture subjected
The slander corrected

Unanimously, as expected
The President re-elected
Foul play unsuspected
Threat now deflected...Read More

"A smile on her face and a gleam in her eye,"*
I suspected that she was going to lie,
Uncaring dishonesty often occurs
In collaboration with beauty like hers,
So easy for a goddess to stupefy.

So little that she cannot justify,
With many a deliciously...Read More

A chance of a lifetime
Today I hoped to achieve something great,
Something many would consider a heroic trait,
Giving plasma to those in need,
With the hope that the doctor's treatments would succeed.

Taking me back after a two hour wait,
I realized there were some things which they...Read More

Ruby bracelets, broaches of garnets, diamond rings
Some looked up to her because of her fancy clothes.
Who these thinkers were providence only knows.
I waited for her to make her move, not yet impressed.

The Curse of Conquerors Past, Part V
...To prove his point he even opened his shirt,
laid bare his sternum so our blades could stab,
but we were all frozen by what we’d heard,
the worlds just sounded so utterly mad.

He believed he was possessed by Genghis Khan?
And that the...Read More

Letting Go
Your smile has faded
And your eyes no longer see
The things that you loved
And what attracted you to me

I see only now
Your disappointment and hurt
And your adoring voice
Is now angry and curt

It is now as I’ve suspected
The beginning of the end

Up from my feet sharply pry

Of pain that I had not expected
It came on so fast that...Read More

Premium Member The Elf Who Almost Had a Blue Christmas

“I-I-I’ll have a blue Christmas without you”*
I sang mournfully, for I’d never been so blue!
I was lost, wandering the streets, and moaning.
Then a kindly villager heard my groaning.
I suspected he didn’t like my singing.
So what! The relief I sought he...Read More

Solomon’s secretive solemn sassy sensuous servants and songbirds
Solicited serious Somalian solutions simultaneously with South African,
Southeast Asian, South Dakota, and South America.  Squiffy, squirmy
Spiny specialized swordfish sent spiraling soon soared with sticky, 
Silly starfish wearing stiletto heels.  Surfboarders supposedly...Read More

May my country awake
A mob gathered in a flash
Chanting God's name
They lynched one dead
Suspected of eating beef

A mob gathered in a flash
Swinging in bigoted fervor 
They hung two by a tree.
Accused of smuggling cows

A mob gathered in a flash
Swords flashing in hands
They slashed...Read More

Premium Member Victim
Last night I had a most disturbing dream,
One which had an insidious theme.
I still felt its presence when I awoke,
Feeling once more an odd lack of esteem.

I dreamed I was lying beside a stream,
Watching women of beauty supreme,
Their long hair...Read More

Premium Member Venetian masks
Mysterious masks.
Motives suspected.
Whispered invitation.
Dance confirms intentions.
Low hanging Venetian fog
floats through narrow streets.
Distant music from St Marks Square
drifts to rooms above.
Feelings unmasked.
Gondolas rock softly....Read More

As soon as you think you can trust someone they remind you to keep up your guard,
Therefore you should always remember in this game of life to NEVER show your cards.

You never know what secrets will...Read More

The blast of his words unexpected.
The spoil underneath t’was suspected.
“I can’t ring the bell.
I’m buried in hell.”
The bones of the tape were projected.

When Cultures Collide

Where the river ends
And ocean begins;
Cultures collide
And history’s tide,
Erases a way of life
For the indigenous people.

St. Lawrence Iroquoians
Welcomed the French,
To the shores of ‘Kanata’
At Stadacona;
With ceremonial greeting,
Exchanging gifts and ideas.

But only riches of the land
Are considered worthy:

A Weird woman
she pips in fear for lateness like her peers,

hauteur cloaked with reticence,

her-boo-boo-vague, though walled around and palpable

official Narcissist disguised in rude affronts

Bravado of naughtiness in candour yet tacit


“Free me to free me”, rants in melancholy

as  ignorance upsets sorts...Read More
