Belief Structure




Belief Structure


Bewildered agnostic


riddled with doubt

about faith and God

Heaven and Hell

that concept 

so hard to believe 

cause it don't fit
under a microscope

just no way to quantify theology

and yet

the bewildered agnostic

has this hole that

needs to be filled

A spiritual song to raise the soul

A feel good harmony

between Heaven and Earth

The bewildered agnostic

searching for truth

reads thick books


on theology and philosophy


Concludes that faith


derives from the heart

not the head

Super Americanized




Super Americanized


Super Sunday in America
Our unique national holiday

Chips and dip and good cheer
We do so love our games

Everybody playing the boxes
Trying to profit from the score

Stretching the bounds of legality,
A little selective morality

Gambling one of those petty crimes
We often choose to ignore

Cutting corners when it suits our needs
Crossing over the self drawn lines

Currently You and Me



Currently You and Me 




Sometimes



the currents of the the day

takes us to streams

we never imagined

we would ever be


Sometimes


we wash ashore

and are unsure

if we'll ever get back



This is why

the best course

is to go with the flow 


Cause we're all

going to end up

in the same place

eventually

 

She Genius




She Genius


Black leather vixen
blonde hair temptress

slithers into the room 
all shiny and smooth


Every dangerous curve


every sensuous crevice

accentuated

People look at her
and assume

she's dull of wit

but

she's got it going


where it counts

she's got the key


a PHD

in men

She smiles

they come running

Shes asks

they keep giving

Supply and demand

compounded daily

in her bank account

Pawn Takes Queen




Pawn Takes Queen


In glass palace serene

lives the Porcelain Queen

reflecting on her
faded royalty

The splendor
of what was

packed away
in forgotten yesterdays

Cobweb clouds
descend from 
gray skies

on the Porcelain Queen

catatonic 
drunken 
figurine  

alone with her regrets

as the sun sets


on her shattered
empty empire

Beauty Full



Beauty Full


Elusive butterfly

doing the flutter dance

on the perimeter
of her desire


Let's see if 
I can
tempt her
with my sweet nectar

or


maybe 


I should leave her be

and let beauty fly free

Heading For Armageddon





Heading For Armageddon



Smooth talking

fast walking

demagogue on display


Hypnotic controller

of the masses

he does sway


Wave the flag

Pound the drum

for the carnage sure to come


His choreographed propaganda

fuels the hate machine

as fiery rhetoric escalates


Reaching a fever pitch

trumpets blare
the clarion call for war

Demagogue raises his fist
and smiles with glee

He may indeed

be the Anti Christ

foretold in ancient times

The harbinger of death

the angel of the apocalypse

Return Fire!!



Return Fire!!


Hey!

Miss Perception

Spreading text lies
like a nasty virus
in the gossip arena

You can twist my words

Spread your hurtful 

deceits 


Fire away

Cause it
matters not

I know the truth


and my friends do too


We are all on to you

So we file you under I

For invisible
and irrelevant too


As the ground collapses
beneath your
sorry feet

Wake Up Ball




Wake Up Ball

When I reach
my expiration date
and it's time
to plant me deep

throw a big party
for my grand finale

Celebrate my life

and all the joy we shared

Do not despair
or mourn my passing

I had a good ride
I ran my race

Now tis time to get off

cause

all things must end

it's how Nature makes 
way for the new

So toast my legacy

toss down a few

I'll see you again
real soon :)












Patchwork Us




Patchwork Us 




I am the bastard child

of darkness and light


A hybrid blend

of day and night


I am the shadow

you partially see


You can never quite

fully believe in me


I may be just a dream

A wisp of possibility


Wandering through eternity

A forever unsolved mystery


I am your child

and you are mine


We are forever linked

throughout our history


You and I


and all of us


comprise

the fabric

of humanity 








Spoiled Booty




Spoiled Booty


Cosmic destroyer
and his rampaging

armada

roams the galactic seas

committing acts of piracy


Pillaging solar systems

Wasting planets
just for fun


after first stripping
them of their
natural resources

Arrives at Earth


powers up 
the demolition machine

suddenly realizes
where he's at

Lets out a sigh

for the inhabitants


have already
beaten him to 

the destruction

Shadow Dancer



Shadow Dancer


In the darkness
I concocted

to provide
blanket protection


from my shadow


who should be dormant


and yet

there he is

dancing in the dark

Tormenting me
with his presence

Cold blooded
silent stalker

My forever

nemesis

will not be

suppressed
by my laws
of reality

Multiple Truths




Multiple Truths


I am a gray ghost
of transparency 


living in a black
and white world


I reject your absolutes

Piss on your literal truths

Nuances I see

wrapped in soft 
subtleties

You can read between
the lines too

Open your blinds
and let the light
shine through

See the layers

count the complexities

and realize

that sometimes

there is more than

one right answer

Cog In Wheel



Cog In Wheel


Blasting sarcasm

in all directions


Intolerant of fools

and their mindless
indiscretions

I take them on

one at a time

but
there were

too many

these legions of loons

over ran my position


and took me prisoner

Into a pit I was thrown

to be
indoctrinated
integrated
and consecrated

into the Church
of the Machine

where
my lobotomy
was performed
at the alter
of conformity

Now I am 

one of them

Now I am

forever bland

Power of Two






Power of Two 

She resurrected
my stone cold soul
from the tomb
of my indifference


Now I must repay
her generosity
with the passion
she breathed back
into me


Her issues 
will become 
my issues

Challenges to be 
faced together

Our days of
being lone
warriors are over

We are a team

The Forever Club



The Forever Club


The thought
of you
dieing
before me
is my
nightmare


Living out
my days
without you
by my side
would be
my agony

The hole
in my heart
could not be 
filled by another

Cause you were
meant for me
and I was meant
for you

It was our destiny

and it will be again

When we are reunited

for all eternity


Supporting Cast



Supporting Cast


I always wanted to be
a studly leading man


The kind of guy
who when he took
off his shirt
would feel eyes scan
all over his ripped body

Admired and envied
by men

Desired and craved
by women


Just a mere sex object
of lust crazed sexuality

How great would that be?

Alas

My genetic blender

did not cooperate

Being plain
and ordinary
was my fate

I've long come
to accept
this flawed reflection
in the mirror

Worked on pumping
up my personality

Honed 
my wit and humor
as best I can


Making due
with the material
allocated

So here I am

Always playing 
the role

of

"just friends"

second banana man

Ever After



Ever After


You walk into my life

we be 

instantly connected

Electrically charged

Particles fused 

I wonder if you 
feel the vibe?

Do you hear 
my heart rejoicing?

How to get you to recognize
our life changing event?

If I could just meet your eyes

A quick glance

A shared smile 

You move closer

Fate now working it's magic 

I see that ring on your finger

I see your prince
kiss you on the cheek
the way comfortable lovers do

Devastation

Dreams crushed instantly

I curse Fate

I curse Love

Unrepentant envy

The lament of the lonely

My empty life rolls on

You were the one

If only life were

a romance novel

you would be mine

for all time

Just another lost fantasy

I need to suppress 



















Microwave Life



Microwave Life


We all be granular
grains of sand
in the vast expanse
of eternity


When the wind blows
through our allotted time slot
we scatter and dance
with the breeze

Time dominates

None of us immune
from it's relentless effects

Our expiration date
we wear for the duration
of our stay here on Earth

and yet...

we suppress our mortality

Perpetual procrastination

living for a tomorrow

that eventually 

one day

will never come 

Could have beens

Should have beens

Is there a sadder epitaph?


Fire Eaters




Fire Eaters


Mob scene

convulsing and
spinning
out of control

Angry beasties
blasting rhetoric

preaching anarchy
to the congregation
lapping up the hate

Dogs of ignorance

intolerance and
prejudice 

fuels
the flame
as the

dysfunctional party
rages on

Mad Hatter steaming

pouring bitter tea

into the cracked cups

of their hypocrisy
