Taliban

`

They’re unruly, misogynistic; despotic
Act unduly pietistic; psychotic
Their comportment is dense; idiotic
Devoid of empathy; feelings erotic

These stupes steeped in stupor and trances; hypnotic
Are hard core hardliners; soulless; robotic
They render societal flesh dead; necrotic
Depress poor folk, till they’re blue; cyanotic

This horde who’s oppressive, obsessive; neurotic
Thwarts cosmos; sets forth path; chaotic
The scourge they spread hath no antibiotic
Their stillborn régime dropped from swill; amniotic

Political Poetic Parable

`

Narrative:

Righties’ twofold ambition: untold, unneeded wealth;
Unchecked and unbalanced; parliamentary heft

They’ll pay no never-mind; re their crashed mental health
Stand atop rickety platform; good ideas / ideals bereft

They bludgeon common folk constituents; with that dense drama
Render poor jobless and homeless; bloodied by intense trauma

When Stockholm Syndrome / gaslighting; gets huddled masses to cower
Their rash votes snag for brash Righties; till-death-do-us-part power

Moral:

When rank and file find unmet needs; atop hard to reach shelves
That’s far too oft, self-inflicted; since they vote ‘gainst themselves

Dissing Discombobulation

`

Let’s disclose and discuss; each discouraging day
Our sense of disquiet, disgust, dispirit, dismay

We witness disaster, disease, discontent, disarray
Let’s disassemble, below, ills to dis; blow away

Spot the discordant despots; subjects can’t disobey
The fade from view, disenfranchised; who still have no say

Discrimination, discovered; that distasteful display
Disinformation, unchecked, exacts high price to pay

Dishonesty taints; stains souls in hues; dismal gray
Infrastructure’s disheveled; discolored environs’ ashtray

We must disallow, disavow, now; disown tyrants who bray
Discredit their social ills; discard ‘em; keep ‘em at bay

Both disbelievers / disciples, can dispatch life; forward sway
The former will earnestly hope; the latter will solemnly pray

New Alice’s New Wonderland

`

Reflect on the Looking Glass; espy each Ancient Faced Clock
Where counterclockwise sweep hands, go tick-tock-tick-tock
Is this glass barrier unbreachable; doth it forevermore block?
Or have humans, yet, to discover; the occult key to that lock?

Each temporal mechanic, bedecked in crisp, tailored lab frock
Knows their beliefs can’t be berated; be belittled like schlock
Volunteer, aptly named Alice; her heroes Armstrong ’n’ Spock
Checks checklist; nears full-length mirror; she’s ready to rock!

Intrepid woman steps thru, infiltrates with one knuckled knock
Father Time waves her way, warily; in state of palpable shock
He quizzes, “Why are you here? To Revere Me? Jeer?? Mock???
Once she dispels his suspicions; towards each other both flock

She asks, “Can you halt aging, in here; set back our Bio clock?”
“Fade away wrinkles / crows feet; acne scars / the marks pock?”
“From our seen-better-days bods; can our years you lop; dock?”
“Alas Alice,” Pop sighs, “Your postulate’s PURE POPPYCOCK!!!

Gratuitous Analytics Booster Shot?

Dear Readers,

Seeing how this website hath arrived at death’s door, my options are twofold. Either make my professional exit or explore; i.e., (subject matter-wise) seek, find and, from time to time, take the road less traveled. Worry not, I’ll endeavor to loiter within the realm of PG-13! That duly noted…

`

Lips part, oh, so reluctantly; straying south
Breathlessly asking non – verbal questions
Lingering stopovers elicit desired answers;
stimulus for intimate, imminent follow-ups?

Coprophagy

`

Into fake news / views Trump spews; his moron minions ALL buy
Their wholly*, vacuous minds; suck up, too, his BIG LIE
These mucked up cultists have run amok; have gone SO awry
Were Don to barbecue doo-doo; they’d ALL give it a try!

`

*holey would work here, too.

Fired Feelings

`

Nightly junkets recur; vivid dreamscapes fly by
Screened interpretations; by the surreal mind’s eye
Such outlandish dilemmas; most truths they’ll defy
Our alarm clock cued Qs: Who – What? Where – When – Why?

Wakeful impressions, imbued with days of yore distance
Flash out of the blue, with clarity; persistence
Showcase random life incidents; most inconsequential
Only our younger selves, would deem them essential

How doth one decipher, such ‘fore the eyes flashes?
All courtesy of our memory caches
We may quickly dismiss the trifling clashes
But, what of bad times, when everything crashes?

Fired feelings then surface; grounds why it’s oft dread:
Our planet’s path, aft, looks lengthy; but, too short ahead
Our once happy homelands, now seethe with unrest
And the contagion persists; that death-dealing pest

Boxed In / Up

`

We wee commoners needn’t think outside the box
Undeniably obvious, the mighty don boxing gloves
Will box us up, tightly, within dank depths of oblivion
That disease rooting to box us all; six feet under
