With my grace-light and care,...Read More

Our high hopes for humanity
traipsed off in treachery’s parade.

We gave him shelter, gave him bread,
and with our...Read More

‘Is love not bitter’? I repeat once again,
‘Think with your brain ’it can make you insane.

When my words rhyme
Oh how I love the crime
Such forgivable murder
Of words changing order

Tis not only sequence

I am ME
The only one of my kind
The undisputed champion
I'm the one you need find
If you're not gazing  for presumption

The gateway  to success
The daredevil of love
The pioneer of  my Highness

The panoramic view of paradise

Frightened By the Polls
Frightened By the Polls

As frightened as a wolverine in a man-made metal trap,
The politician crawled out from under his rock.

He avoided facing his constituency and their votes.
Never had he seen such scathing, waving, hating...Read More
