Just Being Silly

Home is.....
Where your __ss is sat
The coat hung in the rack
Where you hook up your hat.

The rude nude...
When naked truth 
Looks you in the eye
From truth you can't shy
That's  life's way of saying
Your sanity I certify.

When hunger becomes mean....
My toaster burnt to a char
To me, looked like coal tar
Microwave waved a finger
Asking if I wanted dinner
So I gassed my foot in the car
Hunger gave me that much power.
(This happened on the way to the diner)

Labour room mayhem....
The gynaecologist swooned
When Mary had a little lamb
The doctor needed dopamine
Seeing the four legged bloodline.

Ba ba bopeep...
When ba ba black sheep 
Hit a favourite note
The flutist began to weep
The sheep had gotten his goat
That became an irritation in the throat.

Mirror, mirror on the wall.......
With my broken smile
I looked in the  mirror
I saw myself clearer
The mirror became dearer.

When sheet happens......
When shit happens
Puts me in a lot of jeopardy
I turn chaos to poetry
I make the breast of it
When shit happens
I don't let it throw me 
Off balance.

Floored homeless....
My bed threw me out
Burning the midnight oil
I burned the 
House down
I am floored.

The World Of Poets





As poets we have learned not to hate
Theories of race, religion we cannot relate.
A poet cannot be dictated to
We write what our hearts hold true.
From across the globe, we come to share
Joys, sorrows, burdens we bare
We are here today, gone tomorrow
Life is but a time that we borrow
Sharing thoughts, experiences
On a platform that gives new meaning
Learning to listen, learning to give
The tolerance of learning to forgive.
One cannot change the world with poetry
Writing a poem is a feat extraordinary
I think the written word is a thing of beauty
Where sensibilities find sanctuary 
The world of poets is a fine place
Here poets orbit as stars in the Milky Space.

Émigré

Grief worn
Fear torn
Smiles gone
Forlorn
Impugned
Shunned
Banned
Fined
Jailed
Sermoned
Scorned
Caned
Pawned
Spurned
Warned
Wounded
Pained
Alone
Abandoned
In the
Unknown.

Mind Rapids

Mathematics was spared
When Einstein prepared
E= mc squared
In the light of the matter
We felt energy scatter
That's how physics declared.

Entanglement of time, space
A gravitational interlace
Theory of everything
The questions they bring
The phenomena of cyberspace.
