organ grinders and other monkey business…

the brown bag prophet
was sitting
at
a park bench
circling
phrases
and
sentences
with
a red pen
from
what was reported
to be
a
reliable
source
publication
so
i presumed
he was searching
for
crossword puzzle answers
so
i inquired
if i could help
fill-in
an answer
he replied
no
not unless you’ve got connections
with
the kgb
that
i should know about
you see
he said
i’m looking
for
examples of
disinformation
spread
by
russia
throughout
the world
like
that stunt
they pulled
in sweden
to
make
trump
look good
hmmm
with
a little help
from
their army
of
hackers
and
false flag information warriors
they could
quite
easily
convenience
folks
around here
that
i’m
really
a potential
howard hughes-like
benefactor
i’d be eating
free everywhere
and
not off
the public dole
like
the white house

 

spring #5…

having found
an egg
carefully concealed
in
a mound of wood chips
i postulated
that some bird
was using the location
as a nest
and
according
to my theory
using the heat
from
the decaying wood chips
to facilitate
the hatching process
my theory
prove
to be
only
partial correct
when
a large crow
return to claim
the egg
he’d stolen
from
another birds nest

 

spring #4…

oh
i’m certain
you’ve seen it
a hundred times
or
more
but
perhaps chose
not
to admit
that we are totally outnumber
and
have little chance for survival
even armed
with the latest
chemical warfare weapons
our species
is doomed
for
each spring
regardless of where you live
underfoot
are
armies of ants
just
waiting for us
to
stumble
and fall
