Austin Tx    1961 -    
A movement, in time.
:D
That's the way the cookie crumbles
each generation bakes, their own
it's not a fail, or fumble
as the future, yet unknown

The mirror I hold up
reflects, only my hand
holding pen or quill
fulfilling, your demands

The sun will never see
as the night will never know
the darkness without light
the light, that makes things grow

A poet, not self defined
within the artistry revealed
painted with, your words and lines
not what you say, but feel

As in the song remembered
a horse, without a name
contemplation's in the desert
with no-one, left to blame

The relevance of poetry
a personal type of trip
fears and trepidation
of literary, slips

It's like watching a train wreck
you have no effect
as the cars crash and bend
calamity, it trends
A movement, in time.
:D

At two AM the refrigerator deliberately beckons me
screaming all of it's offerings, like a maniac banshee

I oft succumb to its wiles and to the treasures within
bending over painfully, perusing all the lowly shelved sins

Jimmy Dean sandwiches, frozen burritos, Swanson pot pies
minutes of radiation, oblivious of cost, forever on the thighs

Using my emotions, to justify all of my consumption
can't see my knees or toes, that's a pretty safe assumption

It's not that I couldn't go for a walk in the park
I prefer it here all alone, microwaving, in the dark

Why does it have to be called weight "loss" like a lost lover, when it's more like freedom.
That's what it should be called "Weight Freedom" :D

Cursed are the doers
forever, filling the cup
Cursed are the brave
never ever, giving up
Cursed are the poets
words and thoughts sublime
Cursed are the artists
bound, by measured time
Cursed are the loved
pain and hurt,  their's to endure
Cursed are the loving
never rich, but never poor
Cursed and eternally damned
pushed through hell's open door
Cursed, perpetually condemned
always, now and forever
coming back for more

No good deed, goes unpunished.
Yeah, kinda dark, I know...

Heroes and Heroines
hold to what they know
Honing, as they refine
maintaining, status-quo

No greater mission or quest
protecting the innocent, and weak
Passing each, and every test
as honor and justice, seek

Ever will the plague be passed
as each and every time
for damages, present and past
the bill, for others crimes

The cowardice and fear, of masses
as the resolve and bravery, of the few
for the dark, the light, surpasses
persevering, and always coming through

Just saw Batman V Superman (lousy movie IMO), and Cap't America Civil War (not that good either).
It made me think of all the incurred damages such battles would cause. Then I thought, what would have happened, if they had done nothing?

It never fails to amaze me
how red tape grows
like weeds in spring
confounding the solution
an idiotic, thing

Supplying information
providing for requests
within process defined
seeking an improvement
each and every time

Ever will I be amazed
at erstwhile procrastination's
the lack of will, and thought
machinations of the machine
rendering, all, for naught

It binds like ropes
and iron shackles
like glue upon the wheel
progress slowed, and stopped
with nothing left, to feel

Arrrrrgh, "please fill out forms A, B, C, and K, but only if you have submitted form Y within 3 months of previous requests of form D being denied due to complications with form Q" ARRRRRRRGGGGGGHHHHH!
2 more yrs, then I'm done with this!

Little Miss Muffet, sat on her tuffet
the spiders came out to play
she fell deep asleep
uttered no peep
as the spiders
tucked her
away

Oh yeah, Little Miss Muffet spider soup! :D

I am the greatest user, of all the greatest cliches
greater use of greater, looking for, the greatest way

Give me some greater climb, one that greatly overstates
how great it was to be there, overcoming greater fates

It's so great to be here, greatly appreciating the rhymes
I shouldn't be so greatly amused, although I am, sometimes

No greater are the greatest poets, straining greater gates
stretching greater words, to wallow in, greater dire straits

It's so great to comprehend, I'll have no greater vice
perusing greater prose, attempting greater heights

Moi? never :D

What light through yonder windshield breaks
causing airbags, to blow
