The Good Sisters Of Merry


Mary's enthusiasm in bed
was matched
only by her nympho sister Maggie

They loved sharing their men
(Who worshipped their
generosity religiously)

So competitive were they
to be the top lay
their bedsprings did sing
Nearer My God To Thee

Now those of a repressed
Puritanical bent
sought to strip them
of their carnal habits​​​​​​
with a stained glass blast
of fire and brimstone guilt

but the girls could not be swayed
by lame biblical passages
drenched in hypocrisy
(since those bible dudes
we always begatting
with multiple wives)

In the end
the merry sisters
kept doing what came naturally
just as the Lord intended
when he created woman and man
in that lost paradise of Eden

Ode To Sheep Dogs


Every click we inflict
on the world wide web
is registered in a database
sprinkled in the cloud fields
of gray artificial intelligence...

These ghost ships ultimately
define our identity
as our dreams get categorized
and marginalized
into the blender
of trend analysis
which allows the Data Masters
to know what we desire
before even we do...

Tis not as bad as it seems
this apocalyptic nightmare dream
of corporate government thought control
fueling the totalitarian inclinations
of the long established ruling class
now armed with this useful cyber tool...

Unburdened by the constraints
and poor choices that excess options bring
to us overwhelmed fodder fools
we will now finally be totally free
to be the very best sheep we can be...

Flight Of The Enabler


So tired am I
of being your fall back guy
every time you require 
a shoulder on which to cry

My back grows weary
from boosting constantly
your wavering self esteem

The needs
of this pillar
will no longer be secondary
to the whims
of my drama queen

Time for me to go
before I lose my identity 
and become
a pitiful mess like you


Nearer My God To Me


In my dream
the Lord cameth to me
seeking advice
on a query of theology

Told his high Divineness
I was not qualified
in what should be
his area of expertise

He smiled that sacred smile
and let out a soft sigh
cause he had no idea why
he would ask this befuddled guy
anything about anything

Maybe he was just feeling lonely

The Final Dissolution


These days keep bleeding together
Time is accelerating
Too many years gone
Loved ones moving on
Pain accumulates

Critical mass reached

Time for me to disintegrate

Load Bearing Peeps


These chains of obligation
we carry like beasts

Day after day
dragging our weighed down asses
up mountain steep
to do what must be done
for glory unseen

For there are no medals
to be awarded
on the hollow pedestal 
of real life

At the end of the journey
after the task is complete
we can finally find respite
and rest our weary feet

Take a long sip of eternity
savoring the knowledge 
we did our duty

Rebel Dust


From pulpit high
that foaming at the mouth
phony pious guy
is ragging again
at his demons du jour 

What hateful
fire and brimstone
defenders of the faith
and persecutors
of perceived deviants
will never understand
is that Jesus LOVED freaks

Truth be told
he was viewed
as one himself
by the religious establishment
who in fact
went out of their way
to persecute his sacrilegious ass

Such is the fate
of all who poke
the rigid boundaries
set by the naysayer class

So the next time
you get crucified
for your non conformity
remember that you're in good company
throughout history

Read All About Me

Back in the day
I never knew what to say

On perpetual mute was I

Which peeps misread as shy
but twas really just abject fear
of living inappropriately

This of course happens
when lacking self confidence
in the field of public expression

Then I stumbled into social media

Twitter specifically

Where I found my voice
posting micropoetry

Hashtag venting in the public domain

Emptying my soul anonymously

The release felt so good

I found a creative addiction

Now I ramble on daily

Free from the demons of uncertainity

with text friends I shall never meet

who unlike my flesh and blood pals 

give a damn what I have to say

Destruction Construction


We use 
the tribulations of today
as stepping stones
for the glory of tomorrow
like the good
brick layers we are

Building character
from the fragments
of exploded stars
one disaster at a time

Rules Of Dissent


Henceforth and forthwith
any and all acts of dissent
will be regulated by the government
and every placard will be taxed
to cover the high cost
of the first amendment

Prospective mind numbing
repetitive chants
must first be submitted
to the Patriot Media Center
where a committee
of carefully vetted linguists
will edit out all obscenities
or any other language deemed obscene
by the censorship bureaucracy

Those who can not abide by these rules
or still feel the need to disobey subtly
will be summarily tossed over
our shiny new state of the art wall
to be forever cast out
with all the other enemies
of 21st Century democracy

March On By


To all the very recently awakened
hyper activated 
righteous crusaders
seeking to recruit converts
to their latest glorious cause:

PLEASE LET ME BE

Go save the world without me

I got bills to pay
and that damn clock
keeps ticking away

This is my selfish injustice
that needs to be rectified

Crayon Nation


Those who tell the story
keep the version simple

Free of any messy complexity
to cloud the narrative
or contradict their
black and white slant

At the end of the tale
when the last page has turned
tis up to the reader to discern
any and all truth they can find
and to use their best perception
to color in the lines

Damnable Man


After the revolution
intelligence became irrelevant
as emotion ruled the day
and a payback mentality held sway

State sponsored media
spun incendiary stories
to stoke mob insanity
as violence became
the sanctioned way
to obliterate dissent

Then the inevitable consequence
when the beast pushed too far
the pendulum swung and hit back hard

Those who ruled by the sword
were eventually sliced and diced

Their bloody remains
stain the pages of our history

To be repeated again and again

The cycle of stupidity

The curse of humanity

Off Switch On

Political vigilante mobs
on the job 24/7
polluting social media
with their gotcha bullshit

Perpetually pissed off outsiders
sabotaging exasperated powers that be   

but on January 20th
after Inauguration Day
they switch shifts

as a whole new crew
of naysayers move in
to replace
the now jubilant former obstructionists
eagerly ready to assume power
as the tired wheel
of cynical government turns
but continues going nowhere

Inevitable Expiration


People die

It happens every day

Tis planned that way
to reshuffle the deck
so overpopulation
is held at bay

Death is the fearful reality
shared by humanity

Rich or poor

Famous or infamous

There is no buyout clause

Tis a non negotiable
natural law

All things must end

So we best do
with all our might
this gift of life right
