Premium Member Mardi At The Darby
Mardi was at the Darby;
Yet he was not invited to the party;
Very upset at what he could not get; 
He went over to the teller to make a bet.

“Mardi, you came to the Darby,” the teller did say; 
Which made...Read More

“ahoy there!,   have you some beer”

A barber called Sweeney and Mrs Lovett
Both catch human heads inside her bucket
Cooking human head pies 
With blood and eyeball fries
Each bite so tough that folks need to suck it

Lovetts life ends when Sweeney shoves her in
Grasping her hair she...Read More

Rainy Days And Mondays
Turning over I shut my alarm off while in my bed
forcing myself out of my cocoon I have a feeling of dread
its another Monday morning and its pouring outside
getting up I let out a big weary sigh

Rubbing the sleep from...Read More

Perpetual fragrance of life sojourns in air,
As golden glitz of sun swigs despair;

Nature endows its riches on us to cherish,
His boundless bounties will never perish;

A tranquil soul that plucks strings of kindness,
will relinquish soreness of brutish heartless;

Let magnificent aurora...Read More

Bada Bing

Taking swigs
Continuing to dig
Doing it big

Crown me I am king
Doing my thing
Toward the fences I swing
My all I bring
Sting like a bee, And knock them out the ring
It ain't no thing but a chicken wing
They were holding on by...Read More

On a Sunday evening t'will be
After a sweet sermon from the priest
And my ageing buttocks glued to no wooden chair

Oh my lovely meal on the table
The last thing to graze my intestines
And some swigs of Hollandia Yoghurt

Then a leaning back...Read More

Manic waves sunk my boat,
marvel how I could float,
made it to an island,
man there had drinking stand,
mirage I was thinking,
many swigs lemonade,
marooned coconut shade.

Premium Member Luck of the Irish Limerick
Last night I heard the banshee,
After a few swigs of whiskey,
And after I heard her scream,
I poured some Bailey's and cream.
Now I cannot hear her nor see.

Let Them Burn
I shall bloom with unrelenting persistence

and murderous resistance,

fighting back with mental pistons,

shattering the framerworks of my current existence.

I find self expression

from the roots of my depression

and resilience

in the past I'm repressing.

This obsession

drives me up the mountain to anxieties peak

as my...Read More

All things good and bad
All things good and bad...!

All things come to an end,
good as well as the bad!
Interim period vacillating,
between being happy and sad!

Manifesting - big and small,
leaving nothing at all - all across;
goes about in perfect harmony 
only visibly as in chaos!

Everything...Read More

The Rewrite Daily News A Never New and Never ending Story
"Every day is a page to write a new story". 
And I have rewritten us every day for the last 20 years
We break up…but we were never really together
We make up…how sweet it is ...but …well… not exactly true

All he is rackety-raggedy walking the streets.
Talking about things that are conflicting.
His mind has been captured by the wrongful deeds of people.
He has been cheated and depleted of his meaning.
No more power brings no stronger will to live…
That is the...Read More

I have a blind partner named Mark
Who loves to chop wood in the dark
He can't see a damn thing
Swigs beer with each swing
My crazy blind partner named Mark

Snake on My Neck
Snake on My Neck

There's a live Snake
On my neck so awake
What kind of a Snake
Pendant on your neck
Making you a wreak?
A Snake that's mine
I shall vividly define:

I hide bare top in wigs
And woes with swigs; 
I quaff and drown
Like a...Read More

Where is Silence

Silence from my 
breathe exhaling smoke
As the bud taps the tray
as the beer swigs the throat 

All this noise
Noise in a dark room;
noise that echo’s 
when even soft

People keep talking
Horns keep screaming
Buildings keep collapsing
Mouths still complaining

I talk

A madman drunk stalks lone victims these people never...Read More

He looks through the curtains as the meal is served

The sweat on his brow and the I.V. drips

Mom wears her apron with a picture of a turkey on it

It was her favorite and the music playing

And I'm coming home to...Read More

In the End
Two swigs of tequilla
Strawberry Daiquri
A pair of scissors
Some anger
An arm and a leg
Meke a good time
For shedding some blood
Tears anyone?

Taste rebelious....Read More

Your gashing shadow
on the campus bricks,
pinions me to bow and stick
to an aching fetal pose
pulling more than the sallow
shoes of a newly freed man
My marred heart implodes
as a cry of alert
that my turgid insides
won't keep their place
as they're abraded

An Evening in with the Cat
If I had a bottle of pills
I’d dump them out inside my mouth
Take the last few swigs of vodka
And swallow all of them down

If I had a big sharp knife
I’d drag the cold steel across my skin
If I thought for...Read More

Candlelight And Caviar
Candlelight And Caviar

Luxury, wealth and sophistication
describe my exquisite fascination.
Rare to find in the out of doors
rich in passion behind closed doors.
Dress me in silk, cashmere and satin
whisk me to Paris, wrap me in fashion.
Feminine accessories from professionally styled hair
to painted,...Read More

A welter of anxious faces gawks curiously at him,
But by now he is immune to the consternation. 
His effervescent expression glows,
As he swigs down their viscous repulsion.

He knows that they will desecrate his graveyard, 
Punishing him for his denial to...Read More
