Do You Understand


“People think

you’re crazy

if you talk about

things they don’t



~  Elvis Presley


Elfje:            (Cinquain)



standing for

do you understand

what do you think



Senryu:      5-7-5 ( Haiku with people and their emotions/feelings as a topic)


laughing and smiling
perpetual positive
glad to be alive

attitude of gratitude
today, one day at a time
counting the blessings




from recovery to discovery,
oh what a fucked up world this is
entertainment is flaunting adultery
for the ignorant who live a life vicariously

the fake news , kowtowing to their sponsors
the stupid choosing sides without knowing
the enemy are fictitious boogie monsters
the lame killed by a gun that was never smoking

everyone’s guilty until proven innocent
the band wagon filled with all the me too’s
decent respect gives way to the insolent
politics the least of two evils to choose

the rich get richer, the poor get poorer
as we all get older
even the hindsight fails to become clearer
as the objectionist become so much bolder

no one has a better plan
the selfish refuse to read the history
can we blame it on the Kennedy Klan
or was it the Clinton Deep State mystery

my twilight years do not need all this confusion
I chose both roads and it got me nowhere
can or must I believe that it is just a delusion
and with that, I have nothing more to declare

it is time for my nap, please pardon the intrusion



ME and the Boss
