What Does It Mean


“all they want to do is tie

the poem to a chair with rope


torture a confession out of it.

They begin beating it with a hose

to find out what it really means.”


― Billy Collins





the truth

the whole truth

lying cops a plea





no silence in spring

natures chorus seeking mates

music to God’s ear




motives; body, mind and soul

as mysterious as a black hole

our wants and needs mostly ego driven

justification by purposeful commission


deep inside is it nurture or nature

character or appearance a portraiture

the sickest act like a magic chameleon

memory and events destined for oblivion


those who can”t teach or become a politician

common sense does in no way improve cognition

the unethical shrink seeks a plausible explanation

the healthy see only the mentally deranged aberration


the simple mind deduces that there is no rhyme or reason

so sad that politically incorrect could be construed as treason

history repeats and human nature again is wrong

what remains will be left to the elements, the strong.
