Premium Member The Supreme Court
Can the world be made better by stacking our Courts
With immoderate friends that we trust share our views?
Is Court’s dignity served, are its verdicts revered,
Does it mean I’m ‘supreme’ when a fluke helps my side?
Is a ‘litmus test bias’ the...Read More

My Wife The Paper Shredder
Buried in an avalanche you
might see on "Hoarders buried alive"
back and foreground
white sheet with limited pay per view,
nonetheless sky scraping heap

(Uriah not kid) nsync with a 'U'-
shaped tube anchored securely thru
solid wood - sporting
towering, leaning, bulging, et cetera slew,
sans huge...Read More

A legend tells of a place I know 
    where people feared to tread.
And if they did, they often disappeared 
    and the Natives feared them dead.
The Cree tell stories in whispered tones

With each step, grows heavier,
I am climbing a hill and I need to push it uphill,
I must set it down.
I have to reach the top of the rocky tor

floppers propped by whopper croppers
Once the Sinis floppers' nerves acted up in bunches, 
Scandinavians had no way to head off sucker punches.
Sacks of scamming slapstick, slap bass,
and farcefest, thick and fast, came to pass.
Not a clod of sunstruck dung by a donkey's ass

When Katrina came calling,
Lady Blues brought some 
Miami Hurricane bad news
Green Dolphin Street pain parade
went Mardi Gras wind marching
down to the delta swamp of Nawl ‘Leans
And the lewd crowd’s demonic gust marlin friend, 
was cyclone seen: mid-air, pirouette dancing again

Last night
In the cradle of our candle light last night...
We settled and sizzled in the moonlight.
We danced through the dense of the darkest night.
Like a cutest couple we cuddled in the bubble of bonded bouquets.
Dined with wine to shine out our...Read More

Hands Slipping From Priceless Prize
Portfolio theory and investment management stole my sleep
Up and down I paced grounds of Copperbelt University
As anxiety told my soul I was once again about to weep
When fright stalked my bosom in its stark diversity 

But the examination paper beamed...Read More

True or fake news, make no mistake....
Voters are unhappy with their piece of the economic cake...
After GST and all those exorbitant price increases...
Resentment and anger are setting in and seeking a release...

Happiness Hurtles Along
Happiness harvested from whims and wishes
Happiness flashed and hushed in fetishes
Serves and preserves no benefits
As ventures and adventures yield no profits.

Happiness at the behest of behemoths
Happiness shone by fireflies to moths
Deludes and alludes to fantasies
Twisted and wasted in idiosyncrasies.
Happiness...Read More

The Old Summer Camp
In the green Adirondack foothills lies
the haven of our old summer camp,
once a place of adventure and outdoor joy,
and the loud cries of precocious scamps,
their energy you never could tamp,
scurrying ’round on small, rapid feet,
leaping into the pond without a...Read More

The discerning river
The discerning river moves
through the crowded valley woods
like an ancient crooked spine
beneath the vertebrae bridges of fallen trees
it's restless currents strum against strings
of rich green algae that cling
like eels onto polished stones
thrusting waves that curl at their crest
and dive into...Read More

Down, down, down, further and further I tumble, once again into the rabbit hole looking for my Alice. I am swallowed by an avalanche of darkness, bumping into slippery walls that propel me further into the void, back among the...Read More

The Sea-Cook's Lover, Part I
A young woman named Meredith
took a cook’s job on a great ship,
raven-haired and dark of eyes,
she stood slender as a whip.

For five years she traveled wide
across the ocean’s of the world,
seeing so many exotic places,
an exciting life for any girl.

Skin discolored
With fading bruises
Laden with stench
Of sickening feelings
Swamped with epiphany
Now lost of hope
I laughed.
The hysterics carried me away
Like time does
To old, withered memories
Tears rolled down my bony cheeks
Tears of happiness-they say
Funny how I could pull this off
They say they all...Read More

Flood In Bangladesh
Flood is a very common occurrence in Bangladesh

Due to its position and altitude.

In-spite of its all experience and forecast,

The country always falls in awkward situation,

When flood comes with all its loud and lechery.

Premium Member Draining the Swamp
Dear Donalds and Fans Thereof

I suppose by now you have noticed
there is an unfortunate difference
between draining the swamp
and becoming the swamp.

Swamp life promises fast thrills
but delivers slow and sure decomposition,
loneliness at the sadly shared bottom
of the top.

But, the swamp is...Read More

What remains 
when gratitude for learning
totally evaporates?

I don't know...
Totalitarian senility, maybe?
I guess I don't understand
the source of your question, dear.
Do you feel less grateful for learning
than in more formative years?

No, I don't
but I sense younger generations might.
