Complaints (Poem)

A terrible morning, Mourning joy lost, Troubles are mounting, A mountain of costs   Poor customer service, Treated like a servant, Let down; forever waiting, So many expectations.   Lunch almost tasteless, Coffee without a kick, Accumulation of wastage, Whole body is sick.   I shall lodge a many complaint, In spite of ill health,…

Idol Talk (Poem)

I once loved a sports player, Peak attributes and physique, Yet awe turned to critique, As I learned of his cheats. So I lost faith in sport.   I once admired a musician, Her words – harmonious melody, Yet once listening at an audition… Vocals… but a pre-recorded felony. So I lost faith in music.…

As we chose to be (Poem)

Is it all a dream? From foetal beans to rhythmically beating beings.. Bewildering beams…eyes made bespoke for our seeing.. Of us.… are fools, who beat up and look down, frown, begrudge, berate, belittle, besiege.. holding to beef. Beware! Of beady eyed stares their beaks in your business residing beside you, sinking their teeth beneath your…

Belief (Poem)

With our impulses pulsating, Holding the pulse of Satans hand with an arm on the harmonica of an angels harmony, in the harms and virtues we see and do not see in us, both the lowest of the low and highest of the high. Breathing heavily, like thieves of jeopardy flicked on and off between…
