Seems that somewhere along
the road from a twenty year old
rock n roller singing along to
the Clash's "All lost in the supermarket"
till now as a gray head limps
into the pharmacy, I've become
the subject of someone's cruel
satire as I look for a pill to procure
a hard on and a cream to lather
over my balding scalp hoping
that drugs once again allows
me an opportunity to salvage
my vanity and be cool for the ages.

I logged on
To kayak.com
To book a flight
To death's cathedral
And when I got there,
What I saw would
Mortify satan himself

I thought wearing sunglasses
in the coffeehouse like Roy Orbison
while playing a weathered rosewood
guitar would prove my authenticity
to the hipsters, but after the siege
of crickets, the best part of the night
was when one college girl offered
to buy me an espresso if I would
just stop playing and give
someone who knows what
they were doing a chance.

such a pain in the joints
Its arthritis she says
as she bathes her hands
in warm salted water

he feels shut off
like a dog in a kennel
fed the occasional bone
in her private room

yet what can pander to the whim
when he too plays to the game
of a lap dog forever interested
in her nether regions

The grizzled cop
explained to the rookie
that while there are many
versions of the story
behind the whys
of the oldest profession
it's best to stick to
fundamentals and bust
the harlot for her services .

she had the Decency to apologise
to him after she stole his horse
and called Gallop and changed its name
to Pear...

I hope the kids are feigning
indifference and that they are spending time ruminating
on how the power of freedom
will ultimately bring meaning
to young lives fraught with doubt.

My vanity has died with my sanity
hit with and shit on with countless knocks
from a box filled with severed cocks

Hearing the evangelist
on late night television
gab about the glorious gifts
awaiting those who endeavor
to send envelopes of unmarked
bills to the only post office
box recognized in heaven makes
one realize that the pearly gates
are actually security fences
surrounding the kingdom
of charlatans and crooks
till the day justice finally comes
with rolls and rolls of barbed
wire fence to put up
around the temple of the con.

I guess they thought
the palace would have fallen by now
and the chaos in the streets
might have had time
to subside

seems every air-strike
yields an opology of sorts
or strong condenmnation
from men in suits
who'd be hard pressed
to find a blood relation
anywhere near the theatre

none of them offer
to wash the feet of the people

they just show them to the sea

( ...kinda like Hemi's avatar )

The staff was happy
that the shop reopened
during Halloween

they liked the young man
who conjured rabbits
off the air
they had it in broth later

they loved to eat
the tasty offerings
with the local brew
rice wine never tasted so good.



frisky, populate, antagonistic

poet Anonymous

There is no life in them that dares not try
To find a way, a light, an alibi.

Unable to wait, nor can they sit still.
Tormented by their cheaply made thrill.

Oh, Lord, now if only their wings would fly
We would hear an antagonistic quill
Scribbling under an open window sill.  

Subtle, shy, have no place here to try
And populate the date with civil girls, a guy;
With men and women too, who knew just what
To do, why bother with the score, ten-hut.
Both dew and you are wet and you're frisky too.

As suddenly the shrew turning in the screw
Came upon a place seated nice and still.
