A Separate Experience

.

.

Literature is not

a picture of life,

but is a separate experience

with its own kind of flow

and enhancement.”

the stripes

the stars white

a flag to honor

Haiku:

flowers need water
lack of rain is apparent
what is God planning

Poem:

.

those who can’t, teach
critics who can’t, preach
the human form of the leech

it is so easy to pick on others
done by those who don’t like their mothers
the loners who can’t be like brothers

governments just wanting to placate the herd
politically correct and gender neutral preferred
unfortunately love has become a passé word

woe is the man whose ego is right sized
by the really sick he is totally despised
as a milk toast he is characterized

keep on praying, don’t be afraid
big money has manufactured this charade
they know that there is no free in free trade

there will come a day that no one can predict
one can only hope that it will be a peaceful conflict
hopefully it is the winning side that peace has picked

today, try to make your own choices
be wary of the devil and his many voices
don’t let social media control your devices

don’t teach, don’t preach, share the love
vote for those who believe that there is a God above
and just stay out of the way when push comes to shove

The Medium

the message.”

tall

real high

over the top

a long way up

what were his motives

very selfish, self centered

I, me, never we


it was always about him

without thinking of others

.

Poem:

.

there is this crazy lady from Daytona Beach
reality was never within her reach
relationships always involved a hostage
her definition of love was the word bondage

she is always right, never wrong
the choice in music is invariably her song
every emotion involves a twist or a turn
someone always ends up with the heartburn

accusing everyone of having her own bad habits
is very adept at preforming mental acrobatics
behind the smoke and mirrors she is a saboteur
the family knows but they chose to ignore her

she remains needy, selfish and self centered 
ego driven and emotionally demented
those who know keep her in their prayers
nothing will happen as long as she is unawares

God will intervene, we pray she listens
she knows the name of some very good physicians
for those she harmed, time will heal
do not let your memory of her warp the way you feel
