I’m not fond of either side
They ALL have cheated, pilfered, lied
We, the people, must put aside
Our differences and tan some hides!

The salt has lost its savor
The fake are now in favor
And everyone seems so hell bent
On lauding bad behavior

It really is appalling
To watch our standards falling
To placate those whose time is spent
On indolence or mauling.

Should I heed the alarm

Or be tardy again

And rely on my charm

I mean, what’s the harm

We’re so near the end

Should I heed the alarm?

What’s your tempo, fast or slow,
A zombie or a dynamo?
On some days I am just so-so
On others I will go-go-go.

No Benefits

They freely don the chains
Just so they don’t have to work
But once their free will wanes
Those links are tough to shirk
And now in every little town
They’re dragging everybody down.

When you say what no one wants to hear
Your calendar gets very clear
But I have never lived in fear

Of what other people think of me
I'm simply stating what I see
I just wish such a world never had to be.

The oven's droning loudly next to me
and on the left a freezer hums along,
I'm stewing on this thing called Destiny
but feel I’m simply one among the throng,
for nothing in my life would indicate
any hint of a noble cause or such,
it’s time I filled another empty plate
for those convinced they'll never get too much.
The barman tells me someone liked their wings
I numbly shrug and tell him, “Hey that’s great.”
it’s good to know I’m not a total waste,
and though I crave to do artistic things
I guess this is the fullness of my fate:
To hunger but to never get a taste.

The best way to start? Have a grateful heart
And always give as much as you can spare,
Abundance of compassion starves despair,
Have a grateful heart, the best way to start.

Cold Turkey

Halt the hate
Reject the lie
And thus deny
The anchor herd
Like frozen bird.
Sick of it?
Just quit!

Help the greedy have their fill
Let the violent maim and kill
Enable crooks to freely prey
Welcome world to the liberal way

Ensuring there is endless war
Keeping loyal voters poor
A constant crisis guaranteed
The liberal way, oh yes indeed

Their religion? Worship the state!
Their favorite hymn, the song of hate,
Wishing it was over my friend?
The liberal way will be our end.

Once the innocence is scoured away
From the tender face we knew
We knowingly shake our heads and say
My, how they grew

If only we could remain pristine
For more than just a minute
But minions of the mean machine
Can’t wait to rub our noses in it.

C'est la vie

Everyone starts sweet
Until they let you see
The depth of their deceit
A fait accompli.

Deep Fake

Is this poem from me
Or a virtual facsimile
Endowed by data gleaned
When we were quarantined
And every click I let
Be entered on the interNET?

Beware the evil seed
No loyalty is guaranteed
A digital domain
Where meddling mice reign
Will start to take control
And DOWNload your soul.

The Anatomy of Estrangement

When I was young I was told
‘Everyone’s the same’
Although I had a different mold
I tried to play the game

And now the contradictions scream
For though we share a race
Everyone’s heart doesn’t seem
To be in the same place.

I saw the new moon dangle
At an awkward type of angle
And felt myself atangle

With tentacles of light
It curled into the night
To grasp the dreamers tight.
