It takes a fair amount of confidence
and a good-sized ego,
To drop the line and coolly walk away,
Certain that she will take the bait...
I refuse to take the bait, sir.

I touch concrete on my knees-
Wounds, hot flesh, a familiar sting.

I bleed to scab,
Pick and itch more.

What Is It With These... “ Know It Alls “... ?!?

They Seem To THINK That They’re CHOSEN...
When They... HAVEN'T Been CALLED... ?!?

They Really Make Me SICK...
With... ALL Their TALK... !!!

“You Shouldn’t Do This... !!!
You Need To Do That... !!!”

Always Running Some Chat...
As If They’re ALL THAT... !!!

You Have To Wonder WHY...
... Within Their Minds...
They Continually Try...
To Be The WISEST Guy...

Who Knows EVERY LAST THING...
About... EVERYTHING... !?!

They’re INCREDIBLE Folk...
And That Is... NO JOKE... !!!

They Know More About YOU...
Than YOU Seem To Do... ?!?

They Know Every Last Truth...
When They DON’T Even Have Proof... ?!?

They Know About Your Life... !!!

About... What You’ve Done WRONG... !!!
And... What You’ve Done RIGHT... ?!?

And They Even Have The Cheek...
To Think That They Can Speak...
About Issues Within YOUR Family...

As If They’ve... SEEN...
EVERYTHING That You’ve Seen... ?!?
...... Your Family DO.......
When That’s Just NOT TRUE... !?!

The Know It All... PROVES...
How A FOOL REALLY MOVES... !!!

So of Course They’re EXPERTS...
On... YOUR LIFE’s WORTH...
And How You Should Turn...

When It Comes To...
... Your Work...

When It Comes To...
... Your Health...

When It Comes To...
... Your Wealth...

And Of COURSE... How YOU...
Should Conduct Yourself... ?!?

... FRUSTRATED Souls...
Who Just CAN'T Control...
Running Off Their Mouths...
Uptown And Downtown... !!!

The Type of... CLOWNS...
With NO Circus Grounds... ?!?

Because What They’ve Found...
... WITHOUT ANY DOUBT...

Is That They Know EVERYTHING... !!!
But INSECURITIES Live Within Their Skin... !!!!!

So They’re QUICK To INSIST...
That They’re... NOT STUPID... !!!

And Are... NEVER WRONG...
Which Is A... PROBLEM... !!!

They DON'T Deal In BLAME...
Is... What They CLAIM... ?!?

They See... “ People The Same “...

Except For Those People...
... OUTSIDE of Their Race... ?!?

They DON'T Get Angry...
But Can’t AGREE To DISAGREE... ?!?

WITHOUT Behaving Like A Child...
Tantrums Profiled... Within Their Moods...

But They’ll... TELL You...
That Their Always Cool...

I Mean These KNOW IT ALL's...

REALLY Have Some GALL...
And A Whole Lot of FRONT... !!!

But The PROBLEM With Their Talk...
Is That It... LACKS WISDOM... !!!

Their Visions Are Warped...
And... ILL - INFORMED...
Because They’re Born...
From ARROGANT Shores... !!!

Always Claiming To Know...
What They CLEARLY DON’T... ?

They DON'T APOLOGISE...
Because They’re ALWAYS RIGHT... !!!

So... DENIAL's A Friend...
That They Keep REAL CLOSE... !!!

So When They Start To Blow...
It’s BEST To Let Them GO...................... !!!

Because What Comes Next...
Are Things EXPRESSED...
That Clearly Should NEVER...
EVER Leave Their Heads... !!!!

I Mean... Who Is PERFECT... ?!?

But THEM They’re Too CLEVER...
To EVER... ACCEPT...

That They Could Be... WRONG...
Because They’re OH SO STRONG... !!!

In The Things That They Express...
EVEN WHEN They’re Out of Their Depth... !!!!

But In Times of STRESS...
It Seems That Their Heads...
Start To... EXPLODE... !!!

From Their CORE Node...
When Their Life’s On HOLD...
And Their Thoughts Go To Zones...
Where FRUSTRATIONS ROAM...

They Are Pieces of Work... !!!
When It Comes To The Words...
That They NEED To Be HEARD...

TELLING You Things...
That Are WEAKER Than Links...
That... CANNOT Resist...

BREAKING... Like News...
That CONFUSES TRUTH... !!!
With... Tainted Views...

That Make Me Now Conclude...

That There Are...
... MORE Than A FEW... !!!

Whose Lives LOOK All Good...
But When You Look UNDER The Hood...

They’ve Got... ISSUES... !!!
That Provide The FUEL...
For Them To... ABUSE...
In The Talk That They Use...

That Is The DOWNFALL...

of....

... “ The Know It All “... !!!
People sometimes... SM...MFH ... ?!?

Especially in these crazy times, be running talk, as if they're losing their minds, and they tend to be the kind in this set of rhymes !
Blind Pathos Sep 8
You can see it in a drowned man’s eyes
In the pawn shop window I just passed
Frosty truths that come to the table uninvited

The poet and the truth
Face to face, one whistles, one listens
The napkins fill with cognitive snapshots

The poet drowns in words
Just wanting to say something
Or hear it said at all

The dying words from a poet’s mouth
Blow about in autumn color
Drifts and piles that shape the years of practice

What's worth saying has to be said by someone
So a poet goes looking and would suppose
That words rubbed together right would produce

Word museum sentences ripe with meaning
Phantasms haunting great books and minds
Torches lighting the way for all

The poet takes aim and fires
At the fog of meaning
He tugs at God’s coat tail
We are creators, created in the image of God. Like the fish we are having a hard time realizing the water around us. There is more that has not been created than has been.

I am a hero beyond imagine,
Soft velvet red cloak, the medallion resting in my throat,
My heartbeat stomps through my ribcage,
I am here to rescue the princess.

I trudge through the forest and I remember,
I remember who I was before when I came here,
Cape swishing at my ankles, feet in gilded armor,
I grip the glittering blade between my hands.

White marble penetrates the darkness,
I march up to the mossy stone wall, the crooked, tarnished sign,
“No trespassing,” it says, and suddenly
I am standing at a fence, copper, russet, faded gold.
Barbed wire tangles like Christmas lights, family dinners,
I remember and my heart aches.

I see the shrine, the elegant masterpiece
of quartz and precious stones,
I remember the way she used to stand at the bottom,
Defiant and angry, she threw rocks and never shattered,
It’s only a pile of pebbles, grass, dirt, in my eyes
But to her, it was the world and more.

I have to remember I am not her anymore,
What was her world is no longer mine.
I see a possibility, an opportunity, a path,
I take one last glance and I know it is the only way.

I am Prince Charming like no other,
I slice my way through the bushes,
I am arrogant, I am of diamonds and steel.

The green crisscrosses like a net,
I realize someone must have put up a new fence,
I see paint cans, old bottles, moldy shoes.

I see the life that once was my existence,
And I turn around and climb over that wall.
Softly touching down on the carpet of twigs and needles.

The trees wave in the dizzy sky,
The dragon’s snarling mouth is the last image I see,
Burned into my brain with a fiery blast,
Suddenly I am thrown backward.

I stand in front of the tree,
There is something tied in its branches.
I lift my sword and bring it down,
It is just a slender branch.

I place a boulder the size of my heart, my fist,
I flee because I am a coward
I may be a prince but I live only with jewels,
Not the stench of blood and panic amidst battle.

I am here to rescue the princess,
But I can’t even rescue myself
From the past that seduces me.
Am I a hero beyond imagine?

O! Bake me a cake of your lovely
   sweet ****
And I'll eat it, savouring every bite
How I'd love to collapse my face right
   into it....

Now some men they like to smell the
   Coffee
Others, they like the Roses
But me! I like my nose wedged up my
   Baby's bottom
So I can smell her deep sea breezes.

That throne upon which she sits
The sheer arrogance magnificence of
   it.

O! I've been up her hills
And down her valleys
But I ain't ever seen anything
Like her two cheeky Charlies.

O! I love their lazy swagger
Would love them served to me on a
   platter.

Her wonderful pert and Queenly
   bottom
Her splendid imperious behind.

So you can keep your views on
   Donald Trump
And fundamentalist religion
Me! All I want are thoughts of you
And your beautiful curvaceous
   bottom.
A girlfriend of mine send me a lovely photo of her bottom, trying to entice me LOL.

Differences built us up so high
We see the world from the sky,
Clinging to the topmost branch,
The way down is to fall apart.
