Gymming, swimming, running would be my date.

Its high time,...Read More

Given a glass of rosewater, its perfect booze!

Oh!  How he sauntered like a lord with his flaunt
The bluster and strut so nonchalant
The swank and sway blew me away
And swept me under the table like child's play!

His arrogant modesty was no denial

The Ballad of Villonia Beebe, Part 2: The middle years
She'd been wooed by dukes and diplomats
From Nome to Nagasaki,
Kept by mobsters, bishops, bureaucrats,
And a movie mogul's lackey.
She'd been plied with jewels, a fancy car,
Designer gowns and furs
By lots and lots of husbands,
Not one of whom was hers.
For fifteen years...Read More

Oldies but goodies still turn my crank
Perry, Deano, Nat and of course Frank
Civilized crooners
Before the “baby boomers”
They were it, a pure expression of swank

Anger A Crime 3
A delicate, gentle, subtle line
Between love and anger mine
Is capable of making me bovine.

Keep Anger without any deadline;
Swank like proud, angry feline
To clutch and hurt anyone divine.
Are we not better than equine

Enticing  blend of  old and new
Lucknow my town always enthralls

Greets with  a warmth endearing
A city with a global vision

Premium Member Robots will replace humans
My friend, the friendly robot, 
Does everything I could ever want.
Cooking exactly how I like my food,
Like it’s from a swank restaurant.

She cleans, she fixes, and she creates 
And then she irons all of my clothes.
She even massages sore muscles...Read More

My lover, she melts me, like a frog on a lily, 
Watching the days pass hurriedly by.

Peering up through the clouds in the sky.

1822 – 1917

I knew C. W. Harvey.
Knew him and liked him.
I lived on the first floor of his Greenleaf Hotel
By Bailey Street.
Lived and thrived on the flowered verandah.
Sipped lemonade and gummed soft bread
In the swank dining room.
Talked and listened...Read More

Thanksgiving Poem
The Indians and the Pilgrims.
We children do thank.
They've left us with more

They taught us to share
from the Big to the small.
They remind us accept

They taught us to sit

What lurks within
Help with the struggles, man's faced with, in life on earth
As man learns life knowledge, instead of grasping worth

A passion to hold all that's seen, since his moment of birth
Is innate desire or thoughts, meant for direction not for girth

Somebody wrote and once told me
