this ain’t no love song…

this ain't no love song

honey
everyone expects
lovers
to jot down
some romantic lines
about
their undying love
and
endless passion
but child
with
bad backs
artificial hips
and
arthritic joints
we’re lucky
to handle
passionate kissing
and 
stand up hugging
time’s taken its toll
lord knows things ain’t perfect
but you’re my pure joy

 

 

an auction…

Portrait

went to an auction
where there were many items
that were unopened
so i was wondering why
what had happened but once home
i scanned my garage 
seeing unfinished projects
those unfulfilled dreams
and quickly i understood
dreamers never stop dreaming

 

 

artificial nervous system stimulant…

artifical NS stimulant

a broad based
biochemical compound
derived from dead tissue
produced through
cognitive manipulation
when mixed
with
rational thoughts
friendly rivalries
are produced
but
in its purest form
it’s hatred
where
some of its
byproducts
include
racism 
religious intolerance
toxic masculinity
blood feuds
xenophobia
and
of course
war

those who’ve
figured out
that life
is governed
by
chaos theory
say
go with the flow
but
that’s hard
when
the current
becomes
a series
of
waves
crashing into
every boulder
in
the river bed
or
it drops
precipitously
over
a cliff
into
the depths
of
despair
so it seems
having
a philosophical strategy
for
life
is not enough
to
reduce
the pain
life can
inflict

an incomplete picture…

an incomplete picture...

we all have self doubts
questioning
our value
in life
and
to others
questions 
we
can never
truly answer
for
our merit
is
in the eyes
of
others
who
rarely
feel a need
to
express
what’s obvious
to them
and
they are certain
we see
what they see

 

 

the reign of witches…

campaign

it ain’t nothing new
a time tested recipe
drop into the pot
handfuls of fear salt with hate
stoke the fire with lots of lies
when it’s nice and hot
pass the brew around and watch 
as hatred takes hold
as mindless disciples drink
ignorance’s sacrament
now they only hear
the incantations you spew
willing to follow
and do your every command
without a moral compass
defying their own beliefs

 

 

starting point…

starting point

we
so desperately
try not
to see
how time’s passed
we blame
failing eyes
for
the face in the mirror
and
move quickly by
as if
an apparition
has
inhabited
the glass
but
tomorrow’s view
remains the same
just older
seems like
there’s no place
to hide
ah
but
there’s makeup
guaranteed
to make you young
to smooth out
the lines
as if
you’re completely blind
but
you must use
the mirror

rooseveltian revenge

now
i’m not one
to
gossip
and
spread
unfounded rumors
but
just yesterday
while
waiting
for
church to start
i happened
to
overhear
that
one of our
local politicians
had
suffered an
untimely
death
seems
he visited
the wilderness area
he was
so opposed to
and
suffered a
debilitating
injury
honey
that just means
he couldn’t walk
anyway
he called 911
and
they sent out
a couple of paramedics
his exwife
was one of them
well
when they got there
they started in with their
professional questions
name and such
and when
they got to his age
he said
sixty-five
honey
he’s 80
if
he’s a day
well
his dear exwife
said
since this is
federal land
and
protected by
the antiquities act
all
they could do
was to take
his photo
so they did
and
left him there
lord
didn’t it
get cold last night
