I sit here 
In a place where I have no fear 
Will there be another score? 
Does the crowd want more? 
Chelsea is on top 
While Arsenal should not want to stop 
The cheery contingent wants the action 
And the...Read More

"The Precipice"

In the Autumn 
she wore a wedding veil
A cold winter would lift it
Kiss her lips passionately to 
speak words of 
on a 
late roll call

“Well, that’s insanity for you” 
some snakes would hiss
others rapture-faced
on bent knees
plastered her walls

War came. How could it not? Bringing many things especially death. They wanted to knock Turkey out of the war. One ally less for Germany.

To get from A to Zee,
Requires Speed,
That and other trash;
Have whatever you fancy,
It’s Happy Hour,
Ice, Coke, Crack, dope……….
Know what I mean!

Ok admitted - not easy!
People need dough
To get what they crave,
Either you push
The stuff,
Give your body away,
Or you’re Daddy’s little...Read More

Life is an amazing adventure
Not for the faint of heart
The ups and downs, the challenges
Can weaken resolve from the start

When you're a very young child
Things seem so simple each day
Biggest decision you're faced with
What kind of game to play

Girls don't...Read More

Jinxed with accursed automobile woes
Small fortune already spent
to maintain 2009 Hyundai Sonata
(pray cuz I love genii, or even mirthful
teletubby heaven sent)
compromising financial means to pay rent,

telecommunications service provider (Verizon),
electric company (PECO), sparking pent
up rage against the machine money meant
to buffer panic attacks
springing up like...Read More

I stayed to keep Anna Lee company
for a friend from Turkey Scratch, Arkansas.
She found herself in all kinds of sorrow,

A Turkey Protests The Pilgrims's Feast
A wandering duck met a male turkey
at Plymouth Harbor in late October,
the exact spot where the Pilgrims landed,
and reflecting on the lost freedom of turkeys,
" Look, not far from here turkeys roamed freely! "
The turkey exclaimed. " They were looking...Read More

Not from Turkey
The turkey does not come from Turkey.
We humans are totally quirky.
Why call it a Turkey?
The reasons are murky.
Such naming is strikingly jerky....Read More

The Carcass

The best part of the meal, 
the bones, the things others throw away. 
The wingtips, the neck, the gizzard, the lizard...
a fowl needs to be cooked and stewed. 

A bit of broth, a giant onion, scallions if you have...Read More

I never knew that Stonehenge refers to hanging gallows

While solstice gives solace as the sun dial moves forth

Many years of mysteries immortalized for sacred worship

	Blue Stones transported from Pembrokeshire

	For a giant Cromlech by magic or very hard graft

Pagans knew about...Read More

Christmas ?

A Christian Religious Celebration

An affirmation of joy and fun

Quiet contemplation at Midnight Mass

I fear has been hijacked taken over

By a modern day shopping holiday

Filled with dread and debt for some

And where is the fun in that

Christmas Spirit

Holly, ivy,
Fur tree and candy canes.
Lashings of gravy, turkey crown,
Baked sticky pudding, helpings of mince pies.
Crackers, charades, family fun,
Candlelit mass, carols.
Joyful smiles this…

Thank goodness I get tit-bits

I have been let down before. 
Not once but many times. 
Let us be honest, 
nearly always. 

Perhaps you will be different,

This is the season of love’s ascendency.
Zealously measured by each carolling eye,
love is wrapped, trussed, and sacrificed to the tree.
My love is napkin rings, time spent, and a sigh.

I creak under wreaths...Read More

Tom Cunningham, cunning with his limericks.
Slick and sassy, a bit devilish too. If he were
Santa, his bag would be full of not toys but lists
of sensational poetics for adult boys and girls.
