A Cheerful Rhyme
Giggle, chortle, chuckle, laugh,
Snicker and guffaw;
Titter, be in stitches, snort
As if you broke the law.

Cackle, beam and grin so wide
Your cheeks will start to hurt.
Set your face aglow like when
You eat the best dessert.

Keep the real world from your thoughts

The glint of bodies: naked, suited or adorned,
Down by the old soul (earth).

Searching somewhere beyond sight,
For miens and visages propelling into quotidian lives,
With smiles,blues and not so much to cry,
Swept away every scratch of soul,
This wave not seen, not felt, not known.

Sanatorium thronged disquiet,
Medics and Paramedics taxing 
Efforts reclaiming lives, 
Risking theirs...Read More

Covid Coping Tactics
It seems to happen frequently
At least in this millennium
All the freedoms I enjoy
I now must keep to minimum

I'd hardly think a wayward germ
Is gonna take my lungs out
But listen to the MSM
My saner self will then doubt

To Win By Losing, or The Battle of Guilford Courthouse, Part I
General Cornwallis of Great Britain
faced a problem that he couldn’t resolve,
he’d won at Camden, they’d captured Charlestown,
but still the southern colonies wouldn’t fall.

Instead he faced a string of reverses,
lost at King’s Mountain and then at Cowpens,
and couldn’t stop the rebel...Read More

Taking on the evil serpent with firepower and might.

As age creeps ever nearer life's end 
I look upon death as a godsend.
There's few left I can still call a friend

shadows in the dark must learn to blend.

Varying tactics to deftest tongues, 
I find it a futile taxing of tired lungs;

And loves lips that deal daring pain.

At once dazzled by such fiddly verbs

People want to lose their virginity so bad.
No purity.

They go in without any protection.
There’s no security.

They have children just to neglect them
I call that immaturity.

Don’t text me.

I don’t play games.
People have tried to subject me

Overdraft finds me chill and off balance
Penuriousness long did acquaint
yours truly, who feels loath
to lodge complaint
regarding series of unfortunate events
(Lemony Snicket be damned)

I unwittingly did faint,
only negative indebted interest accrues,
now if ever mister money bags I haint,
no gainsay purposelessness
