Eternal Slumber
ETERNAL SLUMBER
I'm Serving Savory Sacrifices of Soulful Songs,
Soundly Singing psalms so Sonorously:
So-fa-mi-ra-do,
Sweet Songs on my lips Staples,
So far my radio
Shook so many Tables
Souls Scintillatingly Trembles
As feets, mouths and hands Dabbles
Soul-prayerfully we stand so strong like Jambuls
Making my Mumble Mockers go...Read More

There once was a place that was very entertaining 
That used chance as a form of gaming 
Inside the hall that was run by a deck of cards 
There were rings featuring talent who wanted to be stars

The baseball fields are empty...no crack of the bat nor cheers in the stands; 
no children's laughter in the park, and the balloon man can't be found...

Are the walls smokin
I'm a clothes addict, my flow's magic
8 miles underground to choke rabbits
Nose habit that grows when I overdose 
But speak truth so it shrinks like Pinochio
Take lines a pony won't, stay unstable
Experiment, opperate and lay on tables ..

Where did the Lonestar go
==============================

Where did the Lone Star go ?
Was she served as a meal on the tables of corruption or buried alive by her assassins 
In the pits of devastation ?

Did she run from our politicians...Read More

Understanding and Accepting
Tomorrow's just 
    a blink away.
And, yesterday
    was once today.
Time moves on
    in spite of all.
Where, once was spring
    has now turned fall.
And, seldom does

I like mine really fat and thick 
The way some men like their women 
Overly explicit and ready to thrill 
Crammed to the hilt with deliciousness 
And the sweetness found nowhere else 

When roasted 
They ooze flavour that other roots...Read More

My sporting parlay tickets are locked away 
In the draw where they will stay 
Due to a bug  
That stopped the world from giving a hug
With nothing on the Las Vegas Sports Book board 
Not even a score

Does anyone care
Does anyone care about souls choked by the hands of poverty,
future shattered against the stones of repression, 
as we are awaken to the alarms of war guns
A daily rhythm of fear to which we dance in tears ?
Does anyone care?

Tea
My box of tea
A cumbersome shopping spree
Sets me free
Today I had tea by the sea
Majestic and clean
Tables laid out with 
Table covers and napkins of crepe
Lace and silken linens
Orange juice,kiwis and omlettes
Biscuits,cheese cakes and tarts
Tea served in English cups

Premium Member Romans Used Salt


Believe it or not, salt's been around forever
Used to preserve food, those Romans were clever
Walked around smugly
Their skies were sunny
Salt shakers on their tables, even at McDonald's

Several formica red tables.
Glass shakers of pepper and salt.
Big plastic tomatoes I wanted to squeeze
And shaped bottles of Sarson’s own Malt.

Netting on half of the windows.
Scratch marks from chairs on the floor.
Ashtrays with notches to rest cigarettes
And 'Open' and 'Closed'...Read More

The good witch is still trying hard to collect the future

Nostalgic and post-modern she fondles her crystal ball

With soft hands she embraces Gaia and its sepia hue

Oblivious to oblivion she attempts to elude the inevitable 

A monochrome reminder of the...Read More

Ode to a Dental Hygienist
They uphold tradition in grandiose style
And whilst toasting the Queen before dinner
In crystal cut goblets, the rank and the file
Raise glass to their lips in the glimmer
With can-descant lighting inside a great hall
And tables all groaning with splendour
A huge public...Read More

still life in cafe
greeted by
the owner

the owner
is the waiter

the chef is
the owner's

wife welcoming
us as if family

one of four
tables to

fill the
frame

begins a
pitcher

filled
red but

with fruit
then next

two glasses to 
be drunk from

for as the

made as is
added shadows

of a simple

proudly served
happily received

Cabaret - LM

Our reality are thoughts carefree,
were created for the purpose of
being infinite surpassing scope
all the lives that lived and lives to be.

Truth en route for tables tangible,
where tainted lives have a chance for hope,
then after the morning laughter ends,

Lost and Found
birth begot obsidian night
myself grew blind to dawning light
eclipse shrouded and buried sight
twilight descended ushering spite

terror resides inside as guilt
behind the walls suppression built
crumbling walls fall the tables' tilt
foundations fallen are not rebuilt 

challenges to climb are stepping-stones
conquered peaks strengthen...Read More

Fright night echoes sounds clink tapped chalices,
Amidst caused bruised concoctions aplenty,
Dons alehouse barmaids geniality,
Fair distance yonder gates of said palaces.

Camaraderie placates fools, nightfalls,
Host chambered snores all else unpleasantries,
Wenches clear tables its swill and varies,
Whilst yon night watchman hollers hourly calls.

The Message is sent on a breeze
Fire eats the wounds of a Mother

Her skin blisters
cracks and peels 

Her children inhale a different pollen
Drones bark messengers like Bowie's Diamond Dogs

machines are giving orders to people

Face masks to hide...Read More

Secret Ballot Impeachment
By Franklin Price

Trump impeachment now in process
Is on the Senate floor.
The Democrats have said their piece,
Rehashed the House, and not much more.

Republicans now have their turn,
Of course, they will defend.
There may be more to testify,
But projected at the...Read More
