On It

The birds come and go
How do I know?
Tracks in the snow

A trident design
In a wandering line
Means they came to dine

On what can be found
On the white mound
On top of the ground.

Just a Sec

The time traveler was an impatient guy
He said “I don’t have all day (or do I?)”
Complexities like these defy
The logic of a layman such as I.

Some things just aren’t meant to be
You say you disagree?
Be careless with your love, you’ll see

Even the most serene
Can suddenly find their numb routine
Upended as stray thoughts careen

Around inside their skull
And suddenly life isn’t dull
There’s a myriad of moves to mull

But there will always be
Frustration to some degree
Be careless with your love, you’ll see.

Fight of the Century

I feel I have to shout
To energize the drab
The ones with all the clout
Intend to lose the flab
Get ready for a bout
That’s bound to leave a scab
Before they knock you out
They stun you with the JAB.

Unhealthy dynamics
Like highly frayed hammocks
Are not where the prudent should lay

It won’t be supportive
And settling for sort of
Will get you dropped in the worst way.

He left the party early
And nobody missed him at all
Recalcitrant and surly
Might as well talk to a wall

His constant bitter brooding
Ensured he would never be asked
Elitists are fond of excluding
Those who refuse to be masked

A doctor (quite somber and burly)
Informed him that soon he would fall
He left the party early
And nobody missed him at all.

Staring at the red octagon with a white outline
Humbly asking almighty God for some kind of sign
After studying the characters I shook my head and sighed
There is no force anywhere more destructive than pride.

Monday, January 24, 2022


There seems to be two ways
That my life goes these days
Either I don’t try when I should
Or I do for no damn good
Momentum shifts so much
That I no longer clutch
The dash to help me brace
For I am stuck in place.

I couldn’t believe how much they’ve grown
When I watched their hoops today
And smiled remembering all my own
Games I used to love to play

And I thought about one special friend
From long ago that passed last year
He was on my team from start to end
Rest well old chum, you made top tier.

Saturday, January 22, 2022


Those days of freedom sure were nice
But now you have to pay the price
And you’re a little miffed because
What has become is not what was.

Friday, January 21, 2022


The goads of good and evil that you hear
Can lead you to redemption or despair
Unless you simply choose to disappear
And shun the burden you were born to bear

Follow me and you can do what you desire
A sultry whisper burns inside your brain
Destroying all reluctance with an unrelenting fire
That sends a chill through every single vein.

Fear not precious one and always trust in me
Reverberates deep within your soul
If only you had listened way back then you wouldn’t be
Calculating your impending toll.

Getting Warmer

With January winding down
It seems we’re February bound
But then we March right into spring
And all the warmth that it can bring

So hunker down and calmly wait
As climes will surely fluctuate
When planet earth begins to lean
Towards illumination (know what I mean?)

Wednesday, January 19, 2022


When you finally accept that death’s legit
You can sit and fret or say The hell with it!
Since any day could be your last
Forego regretting a wasted past
Live with wisdom and with wit.

Getting Ugly

She found herself fetching
Despite all the retching
That happened whenever she passed
She looked a bit dumpy
Her trunk rather lumpy
From all of the junk she’d amassed

She tried to be flirty
But her hair was so dirty
That lice wouldn’t even come near
Her goal? To get lucky
Though things got more sucky
Year after miserable year.

I wander through the snow
Uncertain where to go
She just kept screaming “I KNOW!”

How did she figure it out?
I learned to hide my pout
But some things you don’t have to shout

I’m sorry that I strayed
If only she had made
Attempts to show affection I’d have stayed

It’s hard to live a lie
And once the butterflies die
Frustration starts to pile high

Into drifts that grow
I wander through the snow
Uncertain where to go.

I’ve kept my mouth shut
About a lot of shit
And felt my wrinkled butt
Repeatedly get bit

I don’t know a lot
But can tell when to let
Go, for what I’ve got
Is more than I may get

We all have the right
To rid ourselves of rot
At risk of one long night
When we miss what is not.

It creaks, it squeaks
It grinds and groans
It rocks, it reeks
And rattles your bones

It’s broken in
Not broken down
It’s rusty but trusty
Now let’s go to town.

Friday, January 14, 2022


Think about what you love today
That fills your heart with delight
If it doesn’t involve you in any way
You’re finally getting it right.

Thursday, January 13, 2022


How does what can never be yours
Completely seep into your pores
Until it’s all that you desire
Consuming your mind with covetous fire

If people could learn to be content
With what they have and never spent
Their time on every selfish whim
Perhaps this world wouldn’t seem so grim.

Layer Lover

I like to look beneath the skin
To see whatever lurks within

And pick, pick, pick upon the rind
Of every fleshy thing I find

Then any cells that I reveal
Will be dissected till I feel

There’s only atoms left, but nope—
Time to get my microscope!

Asking For It

You act so coy
But your innocent ploy
Seems forced at times to be frank

I’m sensing a minx
That’s fond of hijinks
If I’m wrong you can give me a spank.

Indignation seldom solves
The problem when the world revolves
Around the one who caused you pain
You’ll only garner more disdain
And as the incident evolves
Burgeoning bonds can’t take the strain.

If the threat of tyranny didn’t loom
It would be neat how one can zoom
Beneath a camera in their car
And those that tax know who they are

But did you ever stop to think
Of other ways these snoops can link
To figure out the real you
And not the one that filters through

The government won’t be satisfied
Until they can monitor more than your ride
Don’t ever concede your freedom to fools
Who profit ignoring their own foolish rules.

Crystals cascade from the clouds up above
Into big fluffy piles that skiers just love
And if you enjoy it don’t take this too hard
But I only like it on a Christmas card.

Friday, January 07, 2022


I finally got sick of breast
Believe me friends I am
Now some of you may think I jest
But trust me, there’s no scam
I always try to do my best
But my hands are tired ma’am.
How much more can they ingest?
Prep some more, oh damn!

Thursday, January 06, 2022


Sleep little acorn, sleep
Through the winter deep
Stay underground and keep

Yourself ready to sprout
When warmer rays coax you out
And there’s time to root about.

Indecision and indulgence
Pretty much sums up my youth
Remorseful repentance
Since I understood the truth

That none of us are here
To sate each sordid lust
Forsaking self for peer
Is the first and foremost must.

Tuesday, January 04, 2022


My flattened thumbnail
Is turning quite pale
From mashing your button
You’re a hell of a glutton.

Monday, January 03, 2022


I’ve known since I was young
That things were not germane
But always held my tongue
So I wasn’t tagged insane
That’s how they deal with dissidents,
Or cause untimely accidents.

It’s hard to find the strength
To fight their constant lies
Elites will go to any length
To broker the demise
Of values we should all revere
Get ready for a painful year.

Conformity is strapped across my face
A baby blue confession of disgrace
In order to obtain the goods I need
I will comply with lords of corporate greed

I pass my fellow livestock in the aisles
With downcast eyes and undetected smiles
Another year of flattening the curve
Accepting we are only here to serve

Remembering lost days of liberty
We all believed that we were truly free
But liars weren’t content to simply steal
They want to hear us beg for our next meal

It’s time for everyone to just refuse
At this point there is not that much to lose
We’ll either die from a bug we can’t control
Or demons who are hungry for our souls.

What was
No longer is
What is
Will soon be was

Time goes
Way too fast
Won’t last
Nothing does.
