Premium Member WHERE HAVE ALL THE WOMEN GONE

It's wonderful~how some women's 
shoes are delightful and feminine.
Yet women dress more and more
like men each day.
It's very sad in the USA, to watch
femininity quickly pass way.

Why wear pretty underwear inside
while dressing Paul Bunyan on the 
outside?
Why get facial waxes,...Read More

Ashore At Baler
We go to one place via another
To do an activity and then leave
If we are allowed to do so

If we are not dead or burnt alive
Or heart stolen by a local gal
We go to this place from afar

Welcome to Trump Land
I name call.  Berate.
Manipulate.  Dictate.
Pressure.  Bully.  Fabricate.
Endlessly lie and discriminate.
Accost.  Harass.  Intimidate.
Cackle loud as I Twitter hate.
How else will I dominate?

Me, myself and I (The Great),
Expressly wish to control your fate.

Where to begin
in the middle of cold and dark
winter's solstice,
healthy green life's time
of impeachment,
excommunication,
dormancy?

Where does this all rightfully
and sacredly left end?

These are expansive gadfly questions,
problems,
issues of complexly dipolar reason,

we are either thinking or feeling
rather than conscious of both,

By Franklin Price

Many have forgotten why the U.S.A. is grand,
How our founding fathers saw it, why they worked so hard and planned

Why they formed the Constitution, that was good for many years
What Representatives, do with it now, should...Read More

EXODUS AT THE LAKE

This is my lake, not Thoreau’s Pond
One path hugs the water to Cash Trail
The other that tugs at my heart
Will wander among old Maryland trees

Premium Member Another Daring Deed - in Trump's own words on Soulemani's death
Yes, I’ve done it once again
Removed a seeping cancerous pain,
Soleimani’s dead and gone,
The devil’s agent, the Ayatollah’s pawn.

Long the source of all things bad,
Few if any should feel sad,
If his passing caused a stir
His gruesome end aimed to deter.

WONDERFUL WRITER'S BLOCK from 20yrs ago
20 years ago, I attempted this "sonnet" (c) Deo

That delicious delay as I await the words
Precious and precise cascades of persuasion
In reference, refrain, in resonance of records
I have waited weeks, fattening into a month
Although words come, I have...Read More
