Fast One

Everyone is fine
with fleshing out the line
it's how the masses dine

the trough is where they stop
to get their share of slop
until the day they drop

it's time to bite the hand
that's poisoning this land
with pseudo food so bland

that concepts such as taste
are forfeited for haste
the clowns must be replaced.

March Madness

So tell me my dear
how's your victim veneer
does it shine with the virtue
that makes you appear

as though you adhere
to a selfless frontier
while demanding your due
through an insolent sneer?

Unsprung

You can't simply whistle winter away
it's something I painfully know
for though it was warm the other day
I just moved a mountain of snow.

Poached

Behind your toothy grin
Incisors of chagrin
are gnawing on the carcass of your will
it once was quite robust
but now is nearly dust
for you allowed conformity it's kill.

Release

For all of his life only one thing mattered:
the words that formed when ink was splattered
he had no money, no car, no wife
only one thing mattered for all of his life

without remorse he scribbled on,
each page an altar prayed upon
he felt no need to know the source
and scribbled on without remorse.

His sentence done, the story through
the final chapter must ensue
he had his chance but didn't run
the story through, his sentence done.

Anecdotal

Remember that suit
I was dreaming about?
Well it's still just a fantasy *scowl*
but I'm resolute
refusing to pout
despite how the wicked winds howl

I still long to fly
above all this gray
and bask in the balm of the sun
but there's nowhere to buy
the supplies, so I'll say--
that yarn has yet to be spun.

Heavenly

I'm envious of Ares
as he dominates the sky
and indiscreetly tarries
with two goddesses nearby

their radiance disarming
with the lure of mystery
and though I find them charming
it was never meant to be.
