A Winning Hand

A WINNING HAND

Patience trumps annoyance
Mindfulness trumps irritation
Non-attachment trumps ego

The Ninth Letter

THE NINTH LETTER

Evanescent froth
Boldly built on shifting sands
As if eternal

There ‘E Goes (The One Note Samba) – (Republished)

THERE ‘E GOES (THE ONE NOTE SAMBA)

There are eight notes in the octave
(One of them recycles its name)
But then there are always those
Who only recognise one note
Repetitive and relentless

Me Me Me Me Me

Frequently, my initial reaction to this type of person is one of revulsion. but then I sometimes pause for reflection and begin wondering what sort of pain, fear and insecurity this behaviour is concealing.

Autofellacious (7b)

AUTOFELLACIOUS

I am Trump
I can remember
I am Trump
So that means
I’m highly intelligent
Because I am Trump

While The Fittest Survived …

WHILE THE FITTEST SURVIVED …

Man’s ego
(Note the gender)
Misreads the message
Sets God aside
Takes over
In a mindless haze
Heads heedlessly
For the nearest cliff

Memoirs

MEMOIRS

A story or two
They’d tell out
These folded fingers
If gifted a fresh blush of
Lips, palate, tongue

A blessing this perhaps
Or rather more a curse
Or better still the both
A confession, an absolution
Each sat astride its mirror

Hubris swallowed, spat out
These crablike fingers
Clutching at straws
While nearby a camel
Patiently awaits a breaking

Oh, what a story
They would spill
Then two then three
Then four than five
These mottled fingers

Or Or

OR OR

Relations are fraught
Far too wrapped up in ego
Celibacy rules
Or so monks and nuns tell us
Or maybe they’re just cowards

Wielding The Force (A Four By Six)

WIELDING THE FORCE

Jobsworths* and Presidents
Share the same brazen* view
What’s the point of power
If you don’t abuse it?

~~~~~~~

*Jobsworth: a minor factotum whose only status comes from enforcing otherwise petty regulations.

*Brazen: Unrestrained by a sense of shame; rudely bold.

Not The Real Thing

NOT THE REAL THING

Fearful egoistical manifestation
Engenders armorial inflation
Leads to superfluous titivation

Over time astute observation
Advises timely disintegration
For eventual emancipation
