Conspiracy: Compilation 01/27/2023

You live in a world where no Gods exist
where fantasy’s real and wishes will die
Nefarious creatures you face by the dozens
to do nothing more than than leer and tell lies.
But how do you yield to a power so bold
To lurch to the front of this crowd?
Without leaving truths spun so even and fine
yet speak in harsh words so terribly loud.
Time to throw in the towel, leave through the door
put the past far from that part of your mind
Of course the best path to take this time ’round
Verify any old clues you can easily find.

A Horse in Armor: Compilation 01/19/2023

Armor for Man and Horse, Steel, leather, copper alloy, textile, Italian, Milan and Brescia
https://www.metmuseum.org/art/collection/search/35772

My actions seemed quite outrageous
I suppose you’d call them daft
to see my equine partner
bard in a coat and hat
The suit was made of armor
A fetish I admit
To see a horse so handsome
Disposable’d never fit
I swallowed any angst now
to point out my big guy
No cheater could they call me
Only authentic did I buy
He was the utmost handsome
I really must admit
But how can I clean real armor
when it’s full of horse’s shit?

Winter’s Depth: Compilation 01/17/2023

Limbs pruned from the large, green pine
severed from the roots
cut so deeply
As if a door has shut out all light
and an immanent cold settles
All spatial reasoning gone
rationed by the falling snow
Any breath is a deviation
from the warmth
and beauty
of spring’s sweet air
and peaceful breeze

Realization: Compilation 01/15/2023

Despite the manifestations
To determine a moment or two
Where gratitude is not held down
Where a strong stand is taken by you

The silence is suddenly broken
When gossip is shuffled around
People around shilly-shally
You shoulder the words and the sound

You wrap your arms around slowly
An afable look on your face
And find that the truth is the one thing
That can fill nearly all of the space

Your guard is suddenly broken
A powdery dust no longer seen
Like the blade of a knife that is bent
All severe feelings is how it has been

The situation is fine now
The look on your face shows a smile
The sweet minty taste on the pallet
Once again you have gone the whole mile.

The Pastor and the Chief: Compilation 01/14/2023

Once upon a time
in an ordinarily boring way
a stodgy tribal chief
made a platter out of clay
He measured inch by inch
the details are a blur
He awakened the next afternoon
His speech a weak, low slur
The pastor in the town
came giving out good vibes
His beatitudes were sincere
He knew the chief imbibes
They sat quiet in a chair
to ponder the last day
and realized with a start
there was a new ceramic tray.
The tray was full of food
there was fruit and a lot of meat
They lunched and said with grace
That each bite’s a yummy treat.

The Proposal: Compilation 01/06/23

Bite your tongue he said to me
While nipping at my toes
A keyboard lay there silently
The candle burns and then it glows
I’m swept away by his soft words
Quickly drying up my tears
As if a load is taken back
A halfpence trade for years
My neck begins to slowly flush
My heart just skips a beat
My love for him continues on
He is my heart’s sweet treat
I pinch myself to make sure now
that this is all true life
when suddenly he asks me if
I want to be his wife.

Remember Love: Compilation 01/05/2023

In a depauperate back alley
where a hand feels the cold brick
and the feeling’s like a cancer
no one strong enough to kick
when suddenly a penny
is lying face up in the sun
exactly like so long ago
a sight afar, eyes fall upon
The sleet no longer pelting
by command of some high God
try to keep your chin up
the warm begins to feel so odd
then fret begins to subside
as the sun begins to shine
and then I just remember
that your heart is glued to mine.

A dishonest man

Whether brazen or bold he just couldn’t see
The result of his actions, the casualty
He found snags like a magnet without any fear
He let it roll of his shoulders never shedding a tear
The stopgap type changes he so willingly made
Were espousal techniques, repetitions to trade
Without any fears to stop him dead in his tracks
Made his old, nosy neighbors turn their crookedly backs
He had enough money, kept an account that he sees
As a way of avoiding all those included fees
So now that it’s known that he had no real clue
He got what was coming, what they say he was due.

One Tough Lady: Compilation 01.03.2023

One tough lady

She thought she heard his voice in the hallway [just] outside
of her apartment so she immediately
found a place to hide
It was a place reserved for those things that many people keep
a solo beach lounge chair, all the junk was piled deep
With a measly bit of force she left the settlement alone
forcing every muscle to move with every bone.
She could hear him mouthing off to the gentleman next door
calling him a OMW, acronym for old-man-whore
She knew the power of his words would make the man just cry
but she quickly ambled out the door, her only chance to fly
She made it to her car with only seconds more to spare
When she saw him start to run towards her with a nasty, evil glare
She put the car in drive and escaped his scary trap
and went right to the police house to tell them of his crap.
The cops were so confused as to why she stayed so long
She simply told the policeman there she was trying to stay strong.
They drove out to her place and saw him lying on the ground
someone definitely shot him, the gun made little to no sound.
No body witnessed anything and they said he had no friends
And this is where the story of abuse will surely end.

New Beginning: A Compilation 12/31/2022 (Last one of 2022!)

It takes an experienced explorer to find something brand new
Its like they knew before him, the advent rang untrue
Wound up in quite a tizzy before they plummet to the ground
It takes a broader spectrum of adventuring abound
So with the change in seasons we welcome a new thrill
And ward off any evil eyes that peer right through and chill
And what is that upon us when waking in the mist
A newer happy ending without a negative twist
