the takeover
The Takeover
Israel has taken over the US
Treasury and all financial bodies
In a silent occupation.
Trump is not only a corrupt president
But he is traitor too 
While thee Facebook
Has been showing cute photos
Of playful cats
The giant snake is eating 
Our existence

Like one hand clapping, 
or night owls napping.   
A whistle with no pea, 
or a buzz without a bee. 

Like a city with no crowd,
or a snore that isn’t loud.
A wind which cannot sigh, 
or a storm...Read More

This Fragile Life - Tribute to Bob
Fragile Life

Tonight I learned,
quite by accident
that my dear friend
lays dying of the virus.

I called him this weekend,
in all this craziness
to check on it a gut hunch
his phone just went to message.

He gasped his greeting,
what would take normally a minute...Read More

Premium Member Companionship with God
I sit in upright chair feet firm on ground
Hands held in form of prayer as I intone
Phrase taken from the Psalms, without a sound
‘My soul, wait silently for God alone.’ 

Thus seated many things seek to distract
Intrude my mind; I’ve...Read More

I'm unprepared
Mental scared
Of what might take over
I get up down on knees and pray
Is this the end I say
The walls are shaking all me

When I know I’m down and out,
When I feel sad and need to cry;
When the pains are intolerable,
Everything begins to go awry.

When I think about my lack of fortunes,
I realise the devil has the best tunes.

When darkness comes upon me,
While...Read More

Meet me in the Woods 
Under the Open Sky,
The Autumn Roads
of fallen leaves left behind,
At dusk or dawn
when its not too bright,
The drizzle of flowing River
Across us shall lie,
A splash of Air
over our faces ; Our feets shall be

Wish I could console and make you whole
Put back the part in your heart that was taken away
As the years go by reflections in the mirror fade
The mirror never cares to see what's missing
It's like a snake with the venom...Read More

How Many Dreams Stolen
How many lives must be taken?
How much blood will be split?
How many tombstones must be ordered?
How many souls will be taken from us?

Each day the numbers rises
As the number of cases
From the across the globe
Rack up in piles of corpses
To...Read More

Living This Life
Trying to stay connected 
I wave at neighbors from across 
the sidewalk, street, and park.

Wearing gloves I cover 
my mouth when I cough or sneeze.
Owners of dogs I used to pet 
I smile and keep my distance.

Basic things taken for...Read More

Dark Obsession

Invading thoughts it feeds away
Has to have its fill each day
No diversion intervention
Just one focus one intention
Fevered thinking crazed and blurred 
Advice and warnings are not herd
Addiction looming all consuming 
Normal life is not resuming 
Deeper in the dark I...Read More

Into the realm of the unprepared spices that knows,
With supremacy in technology, medicine, research and economy
You have come to create a spot of vacuum in the economy
Dismantling social interactions...Read More

Premium Member The Human Mind
The human mind,
great organizer of endless data.
Creating cubby holes of information.

The human mind
is not designed to allow freedom to the pieces,
not designed to let go of form and preconceived notions.

The human mind is frail.
When first I tried to challenge my...Read More

A political Opinion

Fire destroyed my home
  Flames engulfed my possessions
    Fire seared a hole in my heart

She was a doll
Easy Going
Until she felt she was being taken advantage of
Or she felt she was being manipulated
Or she felt like she was being used
That is when 
The claws and horns came out
And she became full-blown Pandemic Patty

It’s pronounced aw-tock-thuh-nos,
a mouthful you’re not likely
to come across or hear spoken 
at the family dinner table 
or with friends at a local bar.

Unless, that is, you’re Greek, 
then you’d know it means 
someone or something 
“indigneous,”  “endemic,” ...Read More

On this earth, which the man beholds
As his sanctuary own, he has proved
The mightiest of all and defied 
Challenges unthinkably hard,
Has taken the route of science 
To go up the value chain

An almost April falls as if the season
were feeble and elderly already.
It is a Pavan for a dying princess;
see how she is laid upon the yellowing grass
her beauty reflected like icy droplets on Spring stems.
Do you hear the sad music?

Before The Gates Of Alahsar - Version - 2 - 23

The mounted riders, 
they speed forwards,
Turvehr did kick with heaven's power,
his mighty horn tearing and rending,
His eyes,
afire with hates desire,
his coat, 
it did shine like the raven's wing,
when kissed by Sol.
He was the destroyer of the evil fire,
to rend,

A Different Kind of Plague
Someday, today will be the stranger whose children's

but this is just like the chance of seeing wolves using
bone-sharpened teeth for the betterment of Monrovia. 
This reminds me of a power...Read More
