Flavoursome you claim
It says so on the packing

Pirouette And Parody

PIROUETTE AND PARODY

What tawdry melodies
What over-frequented bars
What cliché-laden notes

What lustful desires
What spiteful tricks
What fearful denials

What we choose to call love
What a grotesque ballet
We turn it into

Handpickled
Distortions meant to
Convince us
We know best
Tapered, tampered, distempered
Not breaking, broken

Dirty Business

DIRTY BUSINESS

Too much pollution
In our air, in our water
In our politics

“There is the path of wisdom and the path of ignorance. They are far apart and lead to different ends … Abiding in the midst of ignorance, thinking themselves wise and learned, fools go aimlessly hither and thither like the blind led by the blind. What lies beyond life shines not to those who are childish, or careless, or deluded by wealth. ”

Lessons From George Orwell’s ‘1984’

Lessons from George Orwell’s ‘1984’

Unresolved And Ongoing

UNRESOLVED AND ONGOING

Truth or dare but a party game; yet solo
who dare reveal these truths unshown
beyond these so private hallowed walls,
unshared with anyone beside oneself;
unknown in fact even here within
for truth to tell unquestioned, left unexplored.
Awareness – unspoken – wordless – unborn.

Old bedfellows Truth and Lies lie side by side,
sing “noli me tangere” in tango tempo, like
the Magdalene still endures the bad-rapping
despite the dissension, the fervid support.
Wife, best friend, reformed prostitute or what?
Let’s be honest now who really knows?
True truth unrattled by untruth’s pretension
the inner world has never been hyphenated.

American Democracy

AMERICAN DEMOCRACY

The land of the free
Choose between Clinton and Trump
Please don’t make me laugh

Hidden Cost

HIDDEN COST

To seek for fame a bridge too far
To hide from view beneath a mask
Subject of yarn after yarn bizarre
Who needs to take on such a task?

Of Course I’m OK

OF COURSE I’M OK

One can easily hide one’s pain from others
Since generally they aren’t paying attention

One can hide one’s pain from oneself too
Temporarily at best – and only at a cost

Discorporation

DISCORPORATION

Monopoly is
A dirty word so go wash
Your mouth out with share
