Premium Member The People's Champion - in Trump's own words
I get it
I finally get it
It took a while
But now I'm showing my style.

To every home
With somber tone
My daily briefings
Broadcast my teachings;

I tell them all
To heed my call
So all may strive
To stay alive.

My change of tack
A stroke of luck
And just...Read More

Premium Member 4 Non Words - Nonsense
We held a raucous street party, most of the street did attend
There was dust and leaves and sticks on the ground
But with Dancinleefablowin, from junction to bend
The road was all clean with no crackley sound

The start was delayed for those...Read More

People are hurrying, scurrying, worrying
Frenziedly squirreling clusters away.
Rumbling hypotheses riding on every breeze
Cast a malificent shadow our way.

Spreading pervasively, sneakily, rapidly,
Spanning the continents, changing its tack,
Causing uncertainty, splitting humanity
Interdependency starting to crack.

Tension is rising, it's hardly surprising that
Feverish tremors disquiet...Read More

Found in Math they’ll try to confuse you, throw you off and then amuse you,
When the end is met and you’ve made a mistake; you simple go back and let it flow right.
They’ll send you backwards instead of forwards, make...Read More

Premium Member Sunset Ride
Oiled and polished tack
golden coat, white mane
16 hands of raw energy
freshly groomed
chomping at the bit
snorting in anticipation
snow falling lightly
reins firmly in hand 
slow canter across
 snow blanketed  field
steam rising from
my powerful steed
hawks circle overhead
red fox watches
absolute peace...Read More

a hard boiled egg thrown at the Heavens

Premium Member A poor craftsman blames his tools
The cookies were raw, must be the salt,
The oven's a little bit broke,
And the cake didn't rise, flat as a tack,
Must have been a faulty egg yoke,

Maybe the hammer is bent at the head,
Maybe the saw is just blunt,
Maybe I...Read More

The Clock
Tick tack
The clock shows life again

Tick tack, none hears the sound
See all moments of happiness
Tick tack, they fell it all around

Seconds become minutes...Read More

These Words Wont Rhyme
The cold of frost
when all seems lost
the soul the cost
Won’t rhyme with post
That’s Strange at most
Just Like a ghost
Hoasting a roast 
but eating toast
to stop his woes 
and rows the coast 
and stops to pose
Aside the post
Why frost cost and...Read More

Premium Member One Letter Makes a Difference
Give me an a. 
Add an N and a G.

Put on a B
Take off the G

Tack on a D.
Toss off the B.

Now you can add whatever letter
you want to the engine.
Sand, stand, gland, rand

Wonder why reading is so complicated?
But why...Read More

The in-store music is country-slow,
the vibes twangy.
I pick through the tack and tinsel,
dig for rough diamonds.
Squeezing past other consumers,
sharp showers of oven scourers.
A toilet brush, a candy bar,
a plastic encrusted necklace –
pink or blue, all are equals here.
A potato masher...Read More

Whippoorwill jumping jack
Putting daisies pretty
A lonesome road
A one-eyed toad
Painting butterfly city.

Monkey magic is tack.
Bright moonbeam sorely gone.
Upside down me.

Premium Member The Doll Doctor

He would mend and renew,
heal with glue, tack, and brush;
heads broken or blind
smiles cracked or erased, lips peeling.
Dolls bruised by too much love.

Some he brings back from dark places
their porcelain demons exorcised,
counter-curses sewn into scalp and labels.

At times he is...Read More

Premium Member In The Mirrored Frame
I have this ornate mirrored frame
each time I look, it's just the same,
in it is this man again, again.

He talks for years through this frame.
A divide that is so plain,
yet his eyes remain the same.

He knows nothing as I exclaim,
futilely...Read More

His habit to put his socks on first
Started these shenanigans one day
After a shower, he donned said socks
With one sagging in a nagging way

He should have bent over to get it
For raising his foot was not smart

Premium Member 'Eggs' asperated

I fancied an omelette
So I bought myself some eggs,
I cracked a few in a bowl
And drained them to the dregs.

Then I got the whisk out
And I gave them a thrashing,
It all got rather vigorous,
The bowl and eggs went crashing.

So I...Read More

Turns To Song
The words all come together,
their meaning front to back

Like birds of common feather,
they follow the same tack

Existing for each other,
alone their context gone

All strength inside their union
—where memory turns to song
