They're back to talking heads
you know what that must mean
that soon they will be dead
contrived by the machine
and everything we're fed
will be served on a blue screen

and if you choose to eat
you're in for a surprise
the stuff they say is meat
while pleasing to the eyes
will leave you incomplete
a smorgasbord of lies

their gag-inducing course
that's trussed with many strings
as they amass a force
to guard the would-be kings
that will not feel remorse
when the concussion rings.

A long time ago
in a galaxy far away
we were given quite a show
a masterful display
of storytelling that could make
a lump within ones throat
but now they've done a modern take
to shamelessly promote
political correctness
to a sickening degree
and I will just ignore this mess
for no one forces me.

Is our destruction imminent
or can we somehow circumvent
the dreadful dragon's charismatic ploy
by being much more diligent
avoiding reasons to repent
and praising God with gratitude and joy?

***Hi all! As you may be able to tell from the title I meant to post this last month and also to celebrate my 10 year anniversary of doing this blog. I can't believe a decade has passed and how much writing I accomplished in that time. My great desire is still to somehow put out a book and maybe even do this for a living but as for now I am still your hard working, God fearing, occasionally cranky but always original Average Poet, so thanks to all who have stopped by and here's to 10 more years of creativity. Merry Christmas everyone!!!***

Dry Enough

I can't believe the lot I chose
to help relieve unneeded clothes,
the price for pleasure? A wealth of woes!

This skirmish I have not yet won
to not become my mother's son
keeps forcing me to die or run

as I attempt to purge the pine
and every pity - party line
to spare you all my spoiled whine.

Didn't Think I Would

I don’t miss work
Like those who think that sloth’s okay—
I don’t. Miss work
And every condescending smirk
The bosses send my way?
It just isn’t worth the pay!
I don’t miss work.

Patriot Act!

Idealistic talk
Does little more than balk
The realistic few
Who would much rather do

Sensationalistic fools
Pass reprehensible rules
Designed to dampen liberty
Submit or fight to say you're free

Knowing Parts

I know that things are changing
As to how we all are seen
And I've witnessed styles ranging
From obnoxious to obscene
But if your hair is in a bun
Then dude, your manhood's done!
