The other day, pre-dawn
A healthy little fawn
Went bounding cross the lawn

Beside the thoroughfare
The state maintains with care
(we're taxed for each repair).

We all have our own drives
The deer, at risk, survives--
So life (ungoverned) thrives.

Empowerment means you don’t have to care
About anything or anyone anywhere
You can chase a truth exclusive to you
Even if it isn’t right or true--

You can dump your kids or role as wife
In order to find your ‘meaningful’ life
You can rob the world of beauty and grace
But hey, what a powerful future we face.

Even something green
Can be merciless and mean
Like clingy vines of grape
That overwhelmingly drape
Around a maple tree
Until it ceases to be.

The first thing I heard
Was the song of a bird
So I shot for the third
And harmonized

The fifth might have been
Much better but then
Would this moment of Zen
Have synthesized?

The tempo can slow
As times change you know,
Each stage, a new show
Is realized.

The sunset was there
At the end of the street
Compelling my hopes not to dive
The gold was like hair
Flowing down to the feet
Of this lady that keeps us alive

I love all her curves
And where she is flat
Though deep dark places I shun
I had a few swerves
To get where I’m at
While she has most gracefully spun.

The cookies are way past stale
But nothing will get upgraded
Until being zapped through the veil.

For maybe a week or two they shine
Like jewelry in the grand design
Refracting light in every hue
Through precious gems of morning dew
The soon to be delicious line

Adorning every sturdy limb
With opulence that stirs the whim
Of any self respecting drone
In search of petals pollen prone
From which to neatly skim.

All Day

If I told you that conflict was coming
Would you tell me “Don’t worry my friend.”
Or will you hear war hammers drumming
Their martial salute at the end?

You can’t fill a cartridge with rumors
Nor grant a soul solace with lead
But if you ignore nascent tumors
The patient could suffer instead.

The weapon of choice is confusion
More harmful than anything steel
For if we believe the illusion
We won’t see the prison is real.

Our bodies are symmetrical and yet dichotomous
Requiring opposing sides to make the most of us
Our spirits are ethereal and anchor everything
But only through the grace of God will true coherence spring.

Validation matters not
When facing such a massive plot
Forego the need for special sauce
You must write off the coming loss
If we hope to have a shot

But trust me, we’ll be made to pay
Despite what the redeemers say
In this world there is no free
The question: can we foot the fee?
Roll up your sleeves, it’s payback day!

Did you know
A year ago
Your life would change forever
Elected fools
Imposed their rules
Believing themselves so clever
We complied
As freedom died
Although we all said never
And now restrained
Our will has waned
The Hangman grasps the lever.
