Sensual Steampunk Sally
Metals clanging as she walked
Slight peek of white eyelet lace

Black thigh high stockings
Matched her confident swagger
And self-satisfied look

We pirates watched in admiration
As she commandeered our ship
Stealing our breath and making us go weak

Who is she? Someone asked me

An Artificial Arrogance

We can manage today and live till tomorrow
With a minimal walk out, or potential for sorrow
There's more than enough, in our fridges and freezers
The dried goods, the cans, and Bacardi Breezers
Whilst some people think that their time and their leisure
Should...Read More

Swinging Chavs
The only good chav is one swinging from a rope
Strung about his long skinny neck
Chocking the bastard to death slowly
Thus ending his petty little life once and for all
Doing us all a favour and stamping out crime
Ending the problem and...Read More

Keep faith within yourself for you’re alive.
You have no time for tears or thoughts of doubt.
You must be the victor and survive.

In daily life the hardships do arrive
with wondering of how it will turn out.
Keep faith within yourself for you’re...Read More

Amazed at the quarterback who wears number three. Never gets down or gives up does he. His teammates call him “the man” for more then his ability. He puts it all out there, not just his agility. The tools aren’t...Read More

I awake most days reasoning my future is late,
I find scant moves fast enough to accommodate me.
I’ve begun putting things aside, I procrastinate,
And good times lay farther than memory can...Read More

Brimstone Reign
Goodbye, Homo Erectus!
Talking monkey with the rainforest tan
Bent knuckles scarred ...
low brow crouching,
and arched eyes wondering — 
Looking at the bright yellow rock
dusk paper moon burning
Green banana hope 
is swelter swagger of nuclear dawn man

Bad buy, Homo Sapien!

Colored Wolf, Legends of the Wolves
Should I, mere a rabbit of sand, shiny hair,
sport a shock of fur mired in clay,
they from gofer mounds, propped on to peer, would sound warning
through the sun glades and sleep grotto shades.

“A pall fellow lights whereupon we here graze.

Premium Member Sorry

We used to hold hands in public all the time,
not so much now.

You sometimes try holding my hand
out in the open. 
I feel dorky with your hand in mine – sorry.
I hate the thought that those that pass-by
see us as...Read More

shade bleeds a velvet texture
stretching far and wide 
strides to smother 
clawed hands grasping thread 
rip apart layers to shed 
bear the stains of men 
rise and swagger free 
struggle to breathe  
steps in spites deceit
skipping stones of jaded...Read More

I see you strutting
Your long flowing hair
Miniskirt and heels
Swaying with swagger
Content with your lot in life
I try to picture you
In twenty or thirty years
And can’t help but hope
Life never drags you down

Please take this time to steer your thoughts
To a wretched land of lochs and glens.
Where a village was tasked and the people fraught
At the woe and sadness life could send.

With the Dragons gone and the Trolls dispersed
The villagers were still...Read More

She swaggers over to our table
Whips out her pad from her apron
Pencil poised
What’cha want Hon?
She drawls
Soft pink lips in a little twinkled pout
The white frilled design
Bust’n out in all the boxum places
Our “Two Specials with coffee” reply
Brought a smile

Joe clicked his heels
   Clapped his hands
Let out a squeal
   He was in demand

The most popular girl
   In the entire school
Had him carry her books
   His friends just drooled

If only I could swagger today
 but no longer can my body sway
every step aches my bones to sit and stay
 no longer desiring to get up and play.

The girl in me pirouettes without care,
allowing hips' gait on the blue of rocks
as lush wings reel and orbit from nowhere...

Vibrant cheers he exudes
Along his blissful smile
Midst mirth-filled greetings
Shaking hands with everyone
Oblivious of disability’s vexation…

Triumphantly presenting his abstract art work
His boyish swagger prevails, devoid of haughtiness
Revealing “confidence-to-the max” wholehearted glee
With his branded thumbs-up sign  
Defying hypocrisy’s jeers…

Approaching the sanctuary’s...Read More

Premium Member The Swagger of a Pirate Queen

She had that arrogant all-knowing walk,
That warned pirates to get out of her way.
The walk that made mean women gossip,
The swagger of her womenfolk of May.

Captain, she came aboard the pirate ship,
With the swaggiest swag we had ever seen.
Nobody gave...Read More

A Unicorn Walks Into A Bar
He walks into the bar 
Like a movie star

With swagger 
Out pouring the lager

Topped by a mop 
Of such mythical proportion

It hushes the crowd 
With its absorption

More adorn
Than a unicorn

Waving a pompadour 
As big as a brontosaur

My Doberman Pinscher won best of show
and was strutting around like a peacock.
One judge was none too pleased and let me know,
while scrutinizing my dog like a hawk.

She was a sarcastic bitter old prune,
treating both me and my dog with...Read More

The Way of the Walk
Watching people walk on the street.
Tells so much about who they are.
The hurried with their great strides.
Those shifty eyed and guilty shuffles.
The high noses with stuffy little steps.
Waitresses with their swinging hips.
The care full who first test the water.
But crowds...Read More
