I keep waiting for some change to occur
To give me the life I prefer
But the only way that will ever be
Is if it begins with me,
And I feel passion stir.

I keep hoping to see tomorrow unfold
With something tangible to hold
But not materialistically
More An affirmation, see
I'd like to know before I’m old.

Everything and everyone
Is fake and I believe I’m done,
I no longer want to be
Awash in the hypocrisy
Of those so disingenuous
Their scripted words are meaningless.

I laid there, each night, in the dark
Contemplating my nascent spark,
Uncertainty became the norm
For my rapidly expanding form.

Through faith and folly I explored
The world and learned to sheathe my sword
As war means death for either side,
Why destroy to feed your pride?

As years ensued I never found
A reason to be called renowned
And still I ponder, in the dark
is it simply one big lark?

Numbered days
Endless nights
It never pays
To seek delights

Open arms
Shuttered heart
Beware the charms
Forbidden art.

The closer you get to the show
The more your nerves let you know
But once those tubes start to glow
The music is certain to flow—
When every chord rings true
Then harmony will ensue.

All my under achieving
And lazy self deceiving
Has got me where I am today
Just barely still believing

A dream once so alluring
That it was worth enduring
The pointless things I did for pay
In hopes of it occurring.

Men, remember—the way they told you to be
Is not how to act if you’re free
The bonds that tend to restrict
Are those the weak self-inflict.

Things of Such Kind

Is freedom a thing of the past?
We once were free men
Were we truly the last?

Has honor been left far behind?
I miss way-back-when
And things of such kind.

A decade and a half
My life’s still a laugh
But each day I valiantly try
To not give in
And moisten my chin
With tears I could easily cry

Those pictures I saw
Have left me raw
It feels I was hit by a bus
And though the tears flow
I want you to know
You were the best Mom to us.

Tomorrow isn’t given
The past is just a sigh
That’s why the sage are driven
To milk each tick gone by

There is no magic potion
Or condition to extend
The chaos and commotion
When it’s time to end

So make the most of living
Love strong and never stop
Enrich yourself by giving
And savor every drop.

Is everything pleasurable sin?
Not exactly what I call a win/win
But duty to the insufferable horde
Can be it’s own reward.

When the fittings disconnect
Your body spasms hard
Much more than you'd expect
Dependence leaves one scarred

As the simulation reverts
Your mind rejects the scene
Reality really disconcerts
Those freed from the machine

But the wounds they inflict
Will heal, and when that’s so
Teach more to contradict
And perhaps we’ll grow.

When you’re starving
I will feed you
With whatever I can spare
While you’re carving
Through my feed to
See whose views I share.

They’re disarming
When they read you
Their deceptions meant to scare,
Is it alarming
I won’t cede to
All the lies? I simply care.

When you work with a shit-head
Don’t ever boohoo
Unless you want your duties
Multiplied by two.

There’s a mist to the west
That sits on the crest
Of a darkened horizon’s heart

A thick grayish cloud
That looks like a shroud
Hiding secrets to never impart

With luck it’ll disperse
Before it gets worse
As sunset is destined to start.

Chain of Custody

Should anthems instill
A sense of pride?
Well, here’s a black pill:
Your handlers lied,
And here’s another: It isn’t brave
Continuing to be a slave.

How long can a minute last—
How many timeouts have you got?
And don’t forget the zany cast
Of your favorite advert spot

But if you can predict the spread
You just might make a score
A tasty bit of extra bread
(until you bet some more).

Saturday, February 11, 2023


The stage is set, the players rehearsed
With an audience that’s completely immersed
And if the first act doesn’t make sense
Let’s hope the plot gives recompense.

Endless Sea

If I tried to count the tears
I've cried since you left me
the numbers, like the tears
would form an endless sea,

waves of pain and fearful tides
would dash upon the shore
as memories of empty lies
drown me with remorse.

***The last 5 posts are poems I had on another site for years but it seems to be gone now so I figured I'd put them here. Many of the original files are in an older file format and I am having trouble finding an app that will read them, I guess it's a case of antiquated code for anachronic verse 😆. Oh well time to get working on fresh stuff, a new chapter you could say, are you reading me?***

The New Dark Ages


Pollution, retribution,

endless problems, few solutions.

We watch our souls regressing,

as our minds seek evolution.


Starvation, hostile nations,

people pray for their salvation,

while each day brings the world

one step closer to devastation.


Strategic defense, higher rents,

global leaders exude incompetence,

but still the people follow

ignoring common sense.


Ideologies, philosophies,

fanatical theologies,

strive to bring the accepted order                 

crumbling to its knees.


Gilded cages, violent rages,

we're victims of the war ‘progress’ wages,

as we plunge ourselves ever deeper

into the New Dark Ages.

Sea of Dreams

I've a heart full of hope
To sustain my soul
And a sea full of dreams to navigate
Imbued with the strength
Of unfaltering conviction
My volatile fears soon evaporate.

The Soul of a Man

The soul of a man is a delicate thing
Fraught with imperfections galore
Hopefully opposite flaws cancel out
Leaving virtue a bit in the more

Much has been said of this most holy vessel
That houses our love and our faith
Yet no one has ever proved it exists
It seems little more than a wraith

But each of us knows somewhere deep inside
There’s a fire burning savagely bright
That tells us to go when it seems like the end
And won’t let us give up the fight.

The soul of a man, what a wondrous thing
So complex and sublime
May the love of God bless each one
From now till the end of time.

The Darkness

I loved her more than she could know
with care beyond concern
I needed her as life's sweet breath
might cause my soul to yearn.

Without her near my shadow played
alone on empty ground
without her heart the darkness came
and to this day abounds.

Sunday, February 05, 2023


Every day goes by so fast
That sometimes we lose track
But love is always sure to last
Unlike our favorite snack—
A bowl of soup, a fine repast
And now, when looking back
I can’t tell what is more vast
Our time to love, or the time we lack.

Saturday, February 04, 2023


Will I choose death or download for my soul
Initialized for darkness to control?
I'll meet the end with dignity and grace
And pray I’ll see our Saviour's shining face.

Catching Up

I’m not the most disciplined guy
And I’m never the first to comply
The only things I’m prone to do
Are dream and wonder – Why

And that which I tend to eschew
Are those that can’t see what’s true
But when they can no longer deny
The facts, we'll talk anew.

The amber nectar flows
like words the muses send
and scotch (as everyone knows)
is best when shared with friends.

Anemic flabby bacon?
You must be mistaken
I want my pig to crunch when I bite

Relax and let the oven
Do its special lovin’
So I can satisfy my appetite.
