Heart Friends

HEART FRIENDS

A true friend then
Is not that coward
Who’s too fearful
To risk your anger

Yet brave enough
To bitch about you
To other people
In your absence

It took you years
To recognise this
But the other kind
Don’t even notice

The Coping Mechanism

THE COPING MECHANISM

Nothing worries us
Alarm clock keeps going off
But we just press “Snooze”

Coupling And Decoupling

COUPLING AND DECOUPLING

Power she had in mind, in body too
He also had his power, duly exerted
And weaknesses (carefully disguised)

They once so hip, but now replaced
Following their gradual disrobement
As together all’s well that ends well

Learning Pattern (A Four By Six)

LEARNING PATTERN

The challenge: not to flinch
Or having flinched return
To that from which one flinched
And emerge emboldened

White Dove Blessing

WHITE DOVE BLESSING

Fly free, free from hate
Peace, both within and without
Fear not, love instead

Compassion

COMPASSION

Poor rich Donald
Had a heart once too

But has not yet
Found the courage

To admit it is broken
And embark upon

The painful journey
Required to mend it

Dare Devils (Reposted)

DARE DEVILS

Sly peeps from a foxhole I spy
Which of you though I wonder
Is the least untrustworthy one?
Variations on you taking turns
Flash past the slits of my eyes
Each taking their best shots

Taking their own sweet time
While I too take mine slowly
Ploughing through mugshots
Of women both lost and found
Tacitly playing judge and jury
Accuser and accused alike

Oh don’t make me lie to you
Let’s drop stubborn opinions
Let me lie with you instead
See us gratefully transported
To some other place far away
Yet together here all the time

Game, Set And Match

GAME, SET AND MATCH

Fear is the mind killer it’s said
But isn’t it as clear arrogance

(Its crooked by-blow offspring)
Is never lagging too far behind

She taught him this years ago
But sadly he failed to learn it

He taught her this years ago
But sadly she failed to learn it

To blame … teacher or pupil?
Or maybe it’s a double fault

Marching Feet

MARCHING FEET

Hark the sound of marching feet

Trump, trump, trump, trump, trump, trump
Trump, trump, trump, trump, trump, trump

Having understood the past (or have we?)
How have we so misunderstood the present?
(TV, radio and social media hypnotism?)

Hark the sound of marching feet

Trump, trump, trump, trump, trump, trump
Trump, trump, trump, trump, trump, trump

And the future, God forbid, I pray

Looking Out Not In

LOOKING OUT NOT IN

We have been schooled into believing
That love’s opposite is hate, but hate
Is simply an outbranching from fear

They want to govern us using fear
So they try to distract our attention
And teach us how to hate instead
