Tour de Force

They tried their best to make us bleed
And beg for what we think we need
But sovereign souls need not be freed
It’s time to make the show proceed.

Our first gig in over a year, keep rockin'!

A traffic surge?
It’s time to splurge
And satisfy this nagging urge

To get obscene
And vent my spleen
Against the merciless machine

So don’t be scared
But be prepared
It could get messy once I’ve shared.


How awake can you be?
Repudiate granules and see,
Allow your perception to cleave
Through layers they use to deceive;
The best way to get your mind free—
Forget all the lies you believe.

Our satellite was ochre
As it seared the eastern sky
Just like a red hot poker
Going straight into your eye

Attaining its gradation
As a harbinger of hell
From the smoky conflagration
The west had failed to quell

Determined not to languish
In the labyrinth of my mind
I disavowed all anguish
When I left my yoke behind

And sought a new direction
In the confines of a car
While gazing with conviction
At a brilliant shooting star.

I don’t know how often I can state
Our future is a feudal fate,
My words have mentioned many times
In antiquated forms and rhymes
How fascist fools will take away
Our freedom and the right to pray
Unless, of course, we bow to them
And their oppressive stratagem.

The problem is so many turn
Their heads and just refuse to learn
That everything we see and hear
Is manufactured to appear
Informative, but it’s all lies
Designed to slowly compromise
Our logic and our sense of worth
So evil can remake the earth.

I’m just one man but I refuse
To be controlled or ever lose
My mind because some cable clown
Insists that I must fret and frown—
Remember, if we acquiesce
We’ll only expedite the mess
For when their plans make our lives hell
We’re obligated to rebel.

A quarter of a century
A blink, but so much more, you see
When two hearts merge and life unfolds
Regardless what the future holds
It will be met with endless love
As we are taught by God above.

Happy Anniversary!

A gulp, a wince
The pills are downed
And soon you’ll be impaled
For ever since
That mass was found
Your options have curtailed—

We never know
What ills await
Our fragile human forms
So always show
Your love, not hate
We must amend our norms.

Toady News Network

She bobs her vapid head
A twinkle in her eye
Aware that everything she said
Is just another lie

Her conscience is restrained
By total lack of shame
For all the fear she’s feigned
To cling to local fame

The story isn’t new
A tale as old as time
There’s always flunkies who
Enable higher crime.

Today I was greeted by dread
Some buzzards were buzzing my head
So I clutched my wrist
And felt my pulse insist
That no, I wasn’t quite dead

Then I tuned in to the beat
Of wings as I strolled down the street
And watched the grim gyre
Go swirling much higher
Until it is our time to meet.

Magenta misty streamers
Decorate the western sky
A morbid celebration
Of a day that had to die
But all the hopeless dreamers
See more wishes flashing by
Aware that one rotation
Brings another chance to try.
