Footballs meat pies kangaroos
We love football meat pies kangaroos and Holden cars
We’d sing it at home in the playground and in bars
The good old days when everything was Australian made 
But that ended then and now the song did fade

Money
Written: by Miracle Man

Pompous people with money generally feel,
An entitlement attitude is no big deal.
Not having been required to work for a living,
They're so full of themselves that they're unforgiving.

Money's the root of all evil but gets things done,
But a...Read More

a growling beast
she described her work as creating creatures
using her efforts to summon the greatest fear
of people
she wanted her audience to believe her
and she wrote with an effort to
envision the deepest and darkest
feeling of fear and loneliness

The “Lazies”
Written: by Miracle Man
2-19-2020

As bleeding heart liberals crusade for open borders,
Illegals bring their customs, and now reshape our country.
Some show moral probity, but many become hoarders,
And socialist's dare say, “it's all elementary”.

Premium Member CONFESSIONS OF A KNUCKLEHEAD


All things can tempt me~ I'm a scatter brain
Trying to focus causes me such pain
Distracted by a treat or herbal tea
The slightest sounds arouse and amuse me
So easy to sway my concentration
Toying with mindless laws of attraction
My attention spins often...Read More

Premium Member He Decided to Keep Me Here
I figured I would go right up to heaven
So I was ready to die, wishing for it actually.

Days of the Week
Monday means rise and shine,
get out of bed and be at work on time,
it's a day some consider makes them blue
when full of stress and crying too.

FORTRESS
She was a fortress
Rock solid, determined
To stand strong 
Against any attack
But she turned the music up
While her king was in his counting house
It was far too loud
She danced on her walls
Flaunted herself, taunted
Received attention, even unwanted
Aware and unaware of her...Read More

Breakfast appears in mourning and sorrows 
The sugar that came hanging on our lips got drown into tears
Stray bullets flew over the table singing ridiculously in chorus

The blue skies changed color crashing our hope and feelings
Fear visited every olive branch...Read More

The red shoes are shabby
discolored with champagne.
They started so bright and full of life,
now they sit blue and dejected.

She had to have them!
She saw the ruby slippers
that might take her home;
	anywhere not here.

She would gloss them all up,

And have a nice day
Humanity has banned swearing
i don't know what the coitus to do
Stubbed my toe

such a coituser too

Doesn't give a phytoplanton
Manures hit the fan
Cannot understand

for those of us
who grew up
on the farm
rammed down our throats
that there’s no such thing
as a free lunch
still keeping our nose
tightly to the grind
such days now bursting
with feelings of entitlement
reach worlds beyond
our boggled comprehension

Each day I'm reminded that God's in control,
it's important to notice, things He has made.
From placement in the ocean of each atoll,

DEFENSELESS
Tortured by iniquities’ guilt
My soul is condemned toward everlasting wrath…
Defenseless against penalty of sin.

Gripped with hypocrisy in the guise of meekness
My self-righteousness dominantly towers…
Defensive in alluding to human nature’s flaw.

Lured into materialism’s plunge
My carnality succumbs to worldly enchantment…
Defending flesh cravings...Read More

The remnants of virtue used and earned,
eternal and the extent of such,
vainglory is measured thusly so,
so be it, a valued lesson learned.

Should beauty pleasure men so justly,
and fair maidens make their faces glow,
tempestuous journey lies before,
