Premium Member Shame
In a moment, she was out the back door,
And turned green cat eyes on me;
Rare vase lay broken on the floor,
And guests just arriving to tea.

Her ears lay flat upon her head,
As she humbly crouched along,
Little cakes and tarts of...Read More

Premium Member A Very True Tail or Tale
They’re cute, little opossums; riding on Mama’s back; 
her tail rail, secures precious brood.  
They’ll grow to be lethal rats; 
they’ll try to eat your dog or cat and they will probably win their battle, as they have, giant...Read More

Premium Member Good Question
Why, O why, did God instruct the fly
   To buzz around the poor cow's eye?
Because if to the other end he sails
   He's swatted by that same cow's tail

My neighbour her name is Matilda
She used to step out with a builder
She loved the exotic, but became quite neurotic
When his lovemaking no longer thrilled her

Her plumbing was starting to go on the blink
And her toilet was leaking and so...Read More

I loved you because you became me
I always thought I was the moth, desperately trying to stay in your light no matter how many times you swatted

But now I see, I was only drawn to your light because it had been mine all along and you'd...Read More

Darling, cute and funny

Uh-oh. Look who is not happy

Swatted new puppy on the nose

But puppy keeps playing

Does not see cat

Sweet Cornbread and Warm Comfort
I rested my weight on the dated metal green and white glider. I moved back and forth listening to the cracking sound that the glider forced out of the patched slats on Mama Ruth's front porch.
It was a pleasurable sight...Read More

Drawing Blood: Join In
There's a pesky mosquito hoverin' around our ears
If he keeps it up he'll soon be splattered in smears
T-Buzz tries to draw our blood
When he gets hit with a THUD!
We'll celebrate his demise with a party ~ Cheers!

Flies Die By The Windows
I didn't ask for them to invade my prison-kingdom, 
Of zirconium, old oak and iron. 
Of wilting lavender on the windowsills.
For years I heard them but didn't see - 
The humming of the horse fly, boring
Into the orifice of my...Read More

Premium Member The Infuriating Gnat
I was sitting here today writing a poem in my little place,
When all of a sudden this gnat comes flying in my face.
I swatted once, I swatted twice, but he got away.
He was determined that he was going to stay.

Fault Lines Re-Drawn
There was a great asthenospheric disruption
Followed by parallel volcanic eruptions
There was a great, abrupt tectonic shift
In a moment, a million years of continental drift

The ground shook like a wet dog out of water 
Mother earth swatted her sons and daughters

Two Bee Or Two Bee
Two bee or not two bee

I swear for sure I swatted one
I sure hope she is dead

Oh no she must have gotten me
just below my ear
the swelling it is rising
and I don't think I can hear

by Stark Hunter

A fly with green translucent scales
Is bothering me to the brink of insanity! 
This irksome beast buzzes around my ears, 
My mouth and my nose, and I know, 
As I know this old quiver of mine, 
That this...Read More

There Are Two Monkeys On My Head
There are two monkeys on my head
And now their on my bed

Jumping up and down
Opps, now one of them fell down

When I went to pick him up,
The other hit me with a cup.

So I swatted at her then
But they both...Read More

Baptism by fire
He squealed,
Like a pig in heat
Praising God for he believed

He sat, 2 years old 
And he looked at the lord
Drew an angels breath
Swatted a toy
A bird that could not fly
Meant for another mans eye

Gramp's died 
took a colorado bound plane

Premium Member PS: TAKE NOTE
 P.S.: Take Note
We are met again 
at the crossroads of delusions
reminiscing failed choices 
and broken promises;
here we stand once again 
in the vanity of illusions
reflecting tainted truths 
and old compromises.
Here they come again 
dancing in our faces;
streaming confetti,
blinding revelations...Read More

Punching Bag 1
My glasses flew in no direction
as your punches hit me with no restriction.
My jaw became your punching bag
and my face you gave many slaps.
The punches you gave me followed the rhythm of my heart
and I said to myself "I´m going...Read More

I am no revolutionary
For mine is not an ideal
A noble statement
I ain’t gonna give a speech
No riling up crowds, riots
This ain’t no cause
No movement for you to join
All that it is 
A cry to the heavens

I am a man tired

My Last Poem
Will my last poem
be something simple,
like taking a final breath,
or will I have time to write 
something longer, say an
epic--for truly every life
ever lived has been an epic:
full of courage and cowardice,
heartbreak and newborn love,
things found and things lost.

Solomon Cook

1820 – 1900

It was a miracle. 
I entered this wicked world with
Mother’s umbilical wrapped around my neck like a noose,
Inside a cold cabin made of stone.
My mother,
A beauty of burden,
Chopped the wood
And served chicken neck soup on special occasions.

I piled my plate with ribs,
Potato salad and pulled pork,
Then grabbed a beer, a napkin
And my plastic knife and fork.

The picnic table beckoned
So we sat to have our meal,
Not knowing that our dinner
Would turn into an ordeal.

For out of nowhere...Read More
