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

January 6th

`

Authoritarian ideology sucks oxygen from the room
Asphixiating the genetically imprinted communal spirit
Laying waste to authentic, precious, sweet liberty
As well as the ancient hope for better tomorrows

Alas, the condemned body has yet to receive
The uncharitable, gruff, asinine corporate memo
Would be unwise to hold its collective breath
Awaiting the improbable eleventh hour amnesty

Stay Safe at Home!

King Gink (no mere anagram)

`

Intro: This poem will be familiar to the one or two folks, who happened by on or around its 08/09/21 posting date. However, since then, my ongoing creative process has necessitated my deleting the original version, amending the headline, adding a better concluding verse and making other subtle revisions to intensify the tenor and smooth out the meter. Check it all out…

`

Past emperor, sans clothing, flashed fat ass; flaccid dink
Yet, “felt” faux frilly finery, fringed in fluff; furry mink
Blondie’s cultish Klan hangers-on, guzzled his Kool-Aid drink
While court jester ass kissers, swooned in his nether stink

In less time than it took for our rolled eyes to blink
Orange man rolled out deception, with sly, wicked wink
With wealth, he slopped rich hogs; drowned dirt poor in red ink
And stomped deep carbon footprints; taking Earth to the brink

From most any health benchmark, States ain’t in the pink
For he sickened the masses; with bug / bigotry’s kink
The pig plundered the piggy bank; left scant pennies to plink
No stable genius is he; he, who apes Missing Link!

We must ensure that sore loser; in sore need of a shrink
Won’t regain the throne; VainMan’s poll stats must sink
Won’t restain the world stage; to the wings he must slink
Just deserts for THAT seditious, fascistic fink!

Be forewarned, flocks of sheeple, he’s worse than you think
He’s traitor, racist and grifter; hoodlum prone to hoodwink
Let’s dress down the ex-emperor; that contemptible gink,
Since he defies mental health, he belongs in the clink!
