Let There Be Limericks: A couple about cats
A cruel circus lion tamer named Fred
Dropped his whip once and ended up dead.
When his body was found
It was scattered around,
Badly scratched and detached from his head.


Where a homeless old woman once sat,
Her pet puss was found dead and suspiciously...Read More

The Strange Truces of King Arthur
The Strange Truces of King Arthur
by Michael R. Burch

Artur took Cabal, his hound,
and Carwennan, his knife,
and his sword forged by Wayland
and Merlyn, his falcon,
and, saying goodbye to his sons and his wife,
he strode to the Table Rounde.

“Here is my spear,...Read More

Remembering The Bag Lady


I spotted her one Saturday morning
as I was crossing Main Street. She was
sitting alone outside my favorite

coffee shop, her elbows propped up 
on a small blue opaque glass table top, 
starring suspiciously at passersby.

A piece of pastry lay
on a white...Read More

Mozarts Final Hours
December 5, 1791: Mozart’s Final Hours



That he was dying and working on a requiem only increased
			 his foreboding – even a genius
is riddled with on-the-dark-side pedestrian fears and emotions 
		that make the flesh tremble suspiciously 

without rational cause. He had...Read More

Premium Member Systemic Change
It is known throughout Earth's anonymous
unanimous Commons,
Systems are hard to change.

The more macro-competitive,
Yang-strong,
The more difficult of all conversion stories

Over pernicious decades,
We tend to add "isms"
to pathological ends
of these global systemic issues.

This polyculturalistic/multiculturalism suffix,
negative appendage,
suggests a pejorative problem
of systemistic stuckness,
where once...Read More

Perhaps infertile
incomplete
unwashed memories
of elder v younger,
Goliath v David,

speak extended family disengagement truth
to powerful dirty laundry engagement failures.

That disclaimer said,
I have two incomplete conversations

Poverty Taxes
In Kenya, they are called value-added taxes, “yani VAT”.
They change and increase every year
And are placed on everything under the sun.
The prices increase daily, 
But they say it would lead to everyone paying their fair share of tax. 

They are...Read More

How did the phrase “Spitting Image” originate
Seems kinda gross to me
Now here's something I've often wondered about
Do Queens expectorate... surely Kings do
For that matter, they pass wind too
Some people... okay some men...
Make a big production out of passing wind

If I had a minion he would be gloriously deferent to me.
He would wash my dishes, he would pay my bills.
He would do my dusting, and he would vacuum.

Inside a congregation

Her eyes are as soft as her voice.
She knows the ins and outs of every song
And sings only to God.

His compassion is endless and unconditional.

Should make you angry, not your bad,
To hate the perks most rich have had,
For rules get bent for them to gain,
Few saints address joint pilgrim's pain.

Schools segregate, texts filled with smoke.

Different Man-Henceforth Flourishing Behindhand
Squalidness—Squabbling squeamishly;
Scrutinizing stigmatized scandalization, substantially scarce
Sprightliness...skeptically surrendering
Shamefully—Scolded sardonically;
Snarling splenetically, severing sensibility, scowlingly simmering
Strenuously...sought survival
Sparring—Sinister sisters;
Seductively swiveling soreness, sarcastically snared, swirling
Storms...sporadically striking
Slowly—Sacrificing stories;
Scorching slanderous subversiveness, suffering suffocation
Senselessly...smoldering serendipity
Sinfully—Silent stranger;
Sneaking skillfully staring
Presumptuously—Pursuing pretentiousness;
Promises protruding pithiness,
Potential problems...penetrating
Frantically—Forsaken fantasizes foresee;
Different Man Flourishing...

Suspiciously—Supplication solicited;
Subjectively settling,...Read More

Forty million stars aglow
Neath a midnight satin sky
