Looks Can Be Deceiving

There was a young gal whose silk skin
Was sewn up with some thread and a pin.
     It would drive the men mad,
     That sleek layer she had,
Well, until she unraveled her skin.

My plumber is here to sort my pipes.
Says he has divorced his wife.
He just showed me his hose.
Then proceeded to propose.
I admit I got the fright of my life.

Barefoot on the snow

The sun told me it will rise again;
And send its warmth to the glen,
But it can't soften the coldness in your soul!
So I will walk barefoot on the snow buried in your whole:
Leaving my traces on your heart's lane.

"A Shepherd's Metaphor"

In economy led of beastly mind,

Upon a political serpentine.

All strives of wickedness kicks,

Against the fleece of Love’s Pricks(goads).

As true sheep trod, before their God’s, INClINE(will).

The stage is warm and yet colder
The past round my neck as a boulder
I sit and I think
Do I need a drink?
Would I have done well to have told her

Comic Vs Critic

I once was told, 
Laughter is subjectable.

Does this mean knowledge, 
Is subjectable to the one who learns it?

Feel free to laugh.

Two Preying Birds

I'm like a SEAL team commando
After several cups of espresso
I like to dive bomb
With great aplomb
A gyrfalcon? I think so

To poach me is illegal
My name evokes the regal
I reach astonishing speed
When I'm ready to feed
You can call me a golden eagle

A Perfect Metaphor

A perfect metaphor for everyone's life is like Standing up in a hammock or standing up on a bike Now that's totally silly And quite unhealthily Could fall down, break your crown, should stick to a trike

Limerick 1

Poor Tom did not know how to ride, 
Encouraged, the first time he tried, 
But the horse was mad, 
It galloped being glad, 
Down the brook letting Tom to glide.

Lies, I Tell You

The myth of extreme self righteousness
Forever hard to find 
Words poisonous like venom
Backstabbing for per diem
Corruption among this game we call chess

Bright Words

I think I'll write a silly dribble
Which you can read and maybe quibble
Pens of color write
Words on paper bright
Could be considered brilliant scribble

Caught in the Act

Got my hand caught in the cookie jar,
mother’s ears didn’t wander too far
Here comes the wooden stare.
then hot bottom fanned air
Double trouble, here comes father’s car

    To solve the evil of pollution
     just eating less is a solution
     stone poop of indian 
     is real  serious question
     not doing every day is action

   Read in daily newspapers

Dazzle Or Baffle

master of gibberish lines of metaphor
acclaim and awards from the poetry corp
coffee house pied piper
study and decipher
dazzle with brilliance or baffle galore

Categories: care, death, extended metaphor, insect,


My mom and dad met in the gut of an insect!  	
As a kid, I was packed in a sac not so perfect;	
When I am mature,	
I make myself sure	
To infect a human when the insect does inject

My Very First Sonnetina

I think tonight I'd like to write a 'sonnetina'
It seems to me that it would be a wiener
   No rules, no rhyme
      No simile
   Nor metaphor
      Nor imagery
Just sling the words, like week-old hash for dinner

Feeling Mellow Today

Feeling mellow today, why, I can't imagine Just one of those days that can now and then happen My bills are all paid My life I wouldn't trade Here's a metaphor, my life's like silk and satin

Once relished was ketchup married; 
He liked mustard so he married; 
It was rather new; 
But not very Yahoo;
Condiment life so unwarried;

Double Trouble

A family who lived as a 'bubble'
joined another to make it a double
     but as bubbles do burst
     by Covid they were cursed
and so it all ended in trouble.
