Premium Member A Child's Only Christmas
On Christmas Eve an Angel
    felt the sorrow of the Lord.
Who wept for the many Children
   sentenced to perish by the sword.
What alarm and consternation
    could sweep their lives away?

Real disaster is looming on the horizon for American life 

This country’s leadership disdains the spirit of truth 

Its sycophants continue to fight against it

And its believers are repelled by honesty and facts

Lies guide their daily mantra

Dark, evil poltergeists dwell...Read More

Wired mortal from the English Art
Banished from his home, spotted from a distance
Noble amongst scrawling African inscriptions
First veneration of mystical minds
Take a bow, take a bow.

Obliterating deliberate disregard 
From interrupters of our histories, 
With trophies, allays a regret and loss
So...Read More

Trump returned home, empty handed
while in Congress Cohen grandstanded,
recounting more malicious misdeeds,
as sycophants yell pro-Trump screeds;
Trump paid off mistresses, faked his wealth,
conducted illegal acts and obscured his health;
lied to German bankers cause he wanted team,
football gods blocked that particular dream;
Trump...Read More

When the Universe created the Universe and allowed for challenge 

It was quite open to change and the preponderance of ageing times

Youth is not a crime and the respect for seniority has to be earned

Oh my Lord let there be...Read More

"The Strict Machine"

Take a note 
pick up your sharpened quill
tap dance your screen
your mind like 
a Magpie's beak 
a Silent Epiphany
Two and
a Silent Jackhammer 
pneumatic drill 
Blackbirds fly off the page
they're swooping for the kill

A new dawn 
swallows freedom...Read More

Blue cheese
But for your manifestation in dried pulp 
Minds neglect your invasion 
The crave for you unquenchable .

Underdogs gazing loathsomly at your managers
Soo powerful you send jolts down the spine of those 
Witness your prowess...Read More

Minds Morally Blind and Unkind
Deceit and duplicity, vengeance and vanity
Exploit our weaknesses and dissipate our souls’ strength
As arrogance cockroaches multiply their insanity
We diminish the strength of our faith 

The more we immerse ourselves in new technologies
Stung by advances in artificial intelligence
Deluding our ignorance and...Read More

Inside a boisterous tavern,
a-light with drunken gaiety
of spilled ribald laughter,
he quietly sits alone ...
gently cradling his mead darkly
Brooding thoughts of past paid coverings
buzzes inside his head
Talking flies having the faces of the dead
“Have mercy, please”
This haunting cry, they all pled...Read More

Premium Member Show me a celebrity
I’m forty-one, a wife, a mum,
“But hey!” I cry, “I still feel young!
My hair’s not grey, my teeth are mine,
I’d DEFO pass for thirty-nine!”
But sadly, there’s a tiny flaw,
That gives my age away for sure,
Yep – show me a celebrity,

Remarks and Barks

We Are One (Nigeria Remix)

Dignity trampled on where corruption is a culture?
Darkness threatens her future, cause of her shapeless structure 
it’s saddening 'cause she’s been richly blessed by Mother Nature
Disunity like a knife...Read More

Belief in existence overtakes the tangibility of truth,
 seeds of falsehood and preconception sown in innocence of youth,
 Buying evry ounce of honey-coated hypocrisy,
Selling and meeting every demand,
 Leading an army of sycophants,
 no reason for honor or deference to...Read More

Premium Member Favorite Recurring Nightmares Part 1
Don't you think that this title is darkly divine?
But, of course, there will have to be weirdness that’s funny,
Though my nightmares are many and have complex arcs
There’s some risk here I might have to work for my money!

Walk away
Walk away.

Walk away from the fear
Walk away from the insults
Walk away from the peddlers of mirage
From sycophants
From false promises
Carrots on a stick.

Don't sell your time
Don't still your soul 
Don't offer memories
To tyrants
To vampires
To loss and threats.

The leading elephant fell
causing a huge elephant stampede
despair hit the herd
even the elders fled in horror

All the animals in the kingdom of
ignorance and self-righteousness grieved 
the head of the herd was gone, “What to do?”
cries to blame the "junkyard idiots"...Read More

And the cemetery is sculpted by freshly lain plots

To offer considerable homage with venerate thoughts		
Of a journey long taken by soldiers and sycophants

The Democracy Lark
The sweet song of the democracy lark

And the whimper of sycophants that fawn
And worship the Trump, and his massive wad

Words of Mass Detritus
I understand we Earthlings
Seek order amongst things
An analogy with ants
Their mother wears the pants
Yet nothing parasitic
Clips her subjects ticket.

Her warriors die in battle
Not like docile cattle
Falling for a social nest
Not some pointless quest
Like double you em-dee’s
Not hidden overseas.

Premium Member Once Upon a Time
Livelihood is in clothing but deprived of its sleeves
sustenance never recognizing a path
to stability and regularity
basic needs tripling into an extended family.
Yet I survived.

Some long time ago, just any cover
above the head was enough and satisfactory.
Hustling creates a rare climbing...Read More
