Waiting for good dough
No matter yours truly
(potential rising star -
analogous to ascending yeast)
bred for easy street
life of po' witless
mendicant nimbly,

pointlessly, and rhythmically
shuffles (think tramp)
along his poetic little feet
garden variety beastie boy
aimlessly, fortuitously, halfheartedly,
and mindlessly follows

one after another backstreet
revisiting, reminiscing, and relegating
lofty mollycoddled station...Read More

5,438 steps into madness
I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity.
Edgar Allan Poe

The crowd approached the lens of the mega camera. Its gnawing rose up in the smoke of 5,438 cigarettes encircled in the density of that afternoon. Moisture brought a stench...Read More

casting my line into the many manipulations
worked by dust devils and hierophants
gambling their grunt wages on my young ass

unwelcome by all rational standards

You got me in rifting feel twists

As I Lust onto a forbidden one
I fall. But by a heart already owned,
My hope is abandoned; I am undone;
A desire provoked by all the unknown.

A heart of rebel depth to tame,
but my wild words reflect not my soul

That low bred confidence man!
That snooking swindler who took me for a fool.

Final resting grounds of a thousand parted pilgrims,

Many brand take fingers,

Dirty Politics
The lines have been drawn 
The battle commenced
Each voter a pawn
Each party seems tensed.

They’ve argued the topics
All blurred the same lines
We muse on our prophets
Determine our swines.

Does one vote for their country?
Or just seek our own gain
Chasing lollies quite bluntly
Causing...Read More

Troubled, down-trodden,trusting still.

Tortured,violated,winning still.

Mind-lashing words steep me deep into your olid casket of rancid oil,
soul, my blistering sore, gangrenous from your slow simmer to break-neck boil.
Pus green rupturing, your infection oozes into my core’s moaning cracks;
fissures fitfully cleaved, leftovers rank, from molten hell-raising...Read More

Just An Old Fable
Have you ever heard of an old fable
About a rich man who lived by the seashore
Who dwelled lavishly in his luxurious castle
Enhanced by stained tinted windows and marble doors

How drank merrily from goblets filled with iniquity
Of wealth swindled from peasants...Read More

Bond Notes
The game nicely played,
The haters laid bare
The desparate enhanced
The detractors left wondering
The strategy at level two
The masses will be chocked
Swindled and left holding on to
Nothing but bond paper.

Agony Of A Swindled Bird
Now it is I chime with sage;
The god of wit!
Clanged his sword with warders
Of profound thinking,
Buried the hatchet with the successors of
intense cognizance,
Scrawled an epitaph of honour,
To raise the Lazarus of creativity,
And returned with bolstered wits;
Boxed in Sage's cranial faculty.

To be Forgotten
Lust onto a forbidden one
by a heart already owned
My hope abandoned, I am undone
A desire provoked for the unknown
Though my gentle words in spirit now lead by pain
With a bitter tongue, I will convey
A crimson rage engulfed by grief
