Mr Bombastic 
So sycophantic 
Spins discs of plastic
He’s so sarcastic -
Thinks he’s fantastic! 

He’s on a health kick
Eat prunes in aspic....
His guts turn spastic
Diarrhoea quite drastic!


Simple  silly scribbles after eating prunes for breakfast  whilst listening to an 'in...Read More

Premium Member Reason to Celebrate
I overheard you say
you are planning a big celebration
for later this year,
when Trump is defeated
for re-election.

I am ready to be invited,
if you would be so kind
to reverse your motives
to celebrating positive alternatives.

I have an uncomfortable memory
that celebrating the former regime's...Read More

The Politician
Oh, what lofty goals, big ideas here
Elect me! I will serve you, absolutely
The rallying cry of promises
A double dose of opponent disparages

Not him, not her, they lie, badly, like cheap rugs
I'm your guy, I will help you, I got your...Read More

Dorian in high dudgeon
For such a low gudgeon, Dorian in high dudgeon.
The puppet popped atop amid internal turmoil,
Of the Russian, for the Russian and by the Russian,
He spent nearly 3 years trafficking spoils

Thanks to his shameless Sharpie...Read More

 There is a ship anchored close to the shore
in the bay, I wonder what the cook is doing now
perhaps he is chopping onions for frying
with a bit of meat from lunch or maybe he is

Her stemless flower hovering in space.
His trippy peace-love sycophantic words.
Her psychedelic petals frown in vase.
She-astronaut claims hippieness — cuts cord.

She's ,I'm not
She is so magical
I am so not
Her beauty being radical
My mind is abroad
It might not be understandable
But it is sometimes manageable

She thinks of me as a friend
Though sometimes we hardly speak
With my emotions being canned
I feel so fatigued
I often feel...Read More

Pot  belly  gorillas sleeping on duty,

Enemies of the state with wings of vultures

Of ego.

Emotional perihelion

Alpha rhythm

Relaxation to angst

Indifference inspired hate

Electrified mutiny. Powerful schism

Scofflaw perplexed;

Sycophantic insensate-

Brutal – inhuman – Trait

Trail of honey to lead the insects-

To altruistic rape.

Drug down into a selfless feudalistic hate.

Sadomasochistic shapes

Shadows crawl back in

And begin to dissect

Honor to inject and...Read More

The Colts Unbridled
The young generation, who believe in dissolution,
promulgating the manifesto
“tradition is the grave of the banality,
only solecism is the quickening of new life…”

which is unable to secure the needed guarantee for the debt.

The grey disguise
I see smoke billowing out from the horizon
The grey strokes swirling and twisting into the tangerine sky
The painted canvas appears to deceive
Dark silhouettes loom large, the end draws nigh

I see distant hopes choke on the toxic
The clouds drift away, in...Read More

Give Peace A Chance Part 2
Yet Africa is
expected to fall in
With speed and
Or be headed back to
For much deserved
And sanitization in
the heart
Of brutish Europe!
Have we not seen
them in action
At Treblinka and
Auschwitz, brother
With their atomic
bombs in Hiroshima
With their weapons
of mass destruction
With their napalm...Read More

Femme Fatale
Behind a frantic eternity,
Beauty stares above the shadow of men
Through her delirious whisper,
Skin-full ache, an infatuated scream
She was love, they dabbled recklessly.

But her visual aspect,
from mountain top to valley bottom,
Her high hills forested temptation,
her sycophantic backside crested a dreadful desire....Read More

When they seek out God, they open a book.
There is no further that they need to look.
By the contradictions they are not vexed.

Discrepancies don’t enter their held minds. 
They don’t look deeply enough...Read More
