The mysteries and, of course, the murder
are all revealed in a parchment envelope
marked ‘Confidential’ 
and placed beside Mr. Boddy 
along with his deceased wealth of knowledge 
in the cellar.

Professor Plum, noted metaphysician,
sipping sherry in the conservatory
points out that we see...Read More

To the windows the students all go.
To get a closer look at the snow.
The teachers began shouting although
Santa fell down from the sky down below…

The school was in a frenzy from head to toe.
Santa was yelling his “ho, ho, ho,...Read More

Petals of Beauty
Showing up the Flowers
Hiding in Plain Sight
From Monkeys and Birds

Orchid Mantis, 
Does her best 
To wait casually, and quietly
for her dinner to fly straight to her.

A predator dressed to kill,
She eats up her tasty beetles

Rehashing History: Legendary Lizzie
Lizzie Borden took an ax
And gave her mother forty whacks.
When she saw what she had done
She gave her father forty-one.

Whoever wrote this jump-rope song
About Lizzie Borden got it wrong.
Though she did give her stepmom ax whacks aplenty,
By the coroner's count...Read More

Premium Member Broken Pieces of My Soul
Broken pieces of my soul, whispering
In ears that have run off in the night, 
Refusing to hear.
Angry always.

Mouth smiles, for no reason.
Glad ears are gone.
Never liked them anyway.

Smile rolls her eyes, 
Wondering which personality
She will choose not today, but the...Read More

Am I a collaboration
Am I a collaboration,
Or should I refer it to my imagination,
For further consideration.

I know my parents part in the collaboration,
My Aunties and Uncles are suspects worthy of consideration,
And my teachers I am sure wrote the odd notation.

I lived in a...Read More

Injustice has been nailed
To the cross
Poverty,the garbage-lines
Have to go
Suspects I pray you'll get to know
That Jesus loves you
And that He'll make your evil hearts
Brand new
Injustice is such a petty thing
But in the midst of joy
Only Christ can bring
Through Christ the...Read More

When You Know
When your boss calls you aside and asks
why you are smiling all the time
on the salary he gives you,
you know
he suspects you of raiding the till.

When for three or more times
your girlfriend cannot keep a date
because she’s  so busy,

My most troubling client
told me he died last night.

While this did not appear to be his somber case,
nor, sadly,
did my home office silently resound
like this was his actual historical peace,
I did conjure up sufficient energy
to ask why he thought so

Unwise To Flex Macho Muscles
I save my love in the cave
Where she roams free
Shoving aside the pride of the stave
Whose tentacles disagree

With the quality and quantity of care
Love demands in return for expanding horizons
In which she’s the key player whose flair
Dominates and dictates the...Read More
