Carole King Might Sing

Blueprints flat for clear instruction,
Start the labor of construction:
Firm foundation, then the frame
Slowly forms, now set the walls,
Hang the doors, do windows same,
Form the as-yet undecked halls–
The house is finished, roof and all;
Shake the table and watch the cards fall.

Cynical Cyclone

Speak about the proud or the prejudicial pauper
And though those two exist you’ll find it isn’t very proper
Unless you also nod and say they often aren’t this way,
So cover all your bases or leave mouths covered in dismay.
Stir up yet more trouble as you castigate the rich
Who’ll pay another other still to smother you in pitch.
That leaves the middle class, and why not call them out as well?
And add them to the maddened crew that wants to give you hell.

Maybe She Lived in a Sock

If I had a ball of yarn as big as me and you,
I’d give it to the old lady, so she could insulate her shoe.

Reign of Chance

Hemorrhaging clouds pour out their flood
On the burdened canvas below,
An abstract art of dripping blood:
A cloudy-skied Van Gogh,
A fingerpaint with clay and mud,
A man? A moral?  A woe?
As moisture slips beneath the wood
To basements of the soul
Where damp doubts don the devil’s hood
And drink beguilers’ Bordeaux;
Wet thoughts all shivering where they stood,

Can even this be good?

Written as a parallel poem to viewingcamelot’s Chance of Rain.

 

 

Maybe there was a lot?

“What’d you do today?” you shout
Over the din of the ad man’s offer,
Into the ear of the tv watcher,
Making its way through his mental processor.
Once registered, he gives his answer,
“Today I took the garbage out.”

Clash Mob

Pitchforks raised and at the ready,
Each face scowls and holds it steady;
Torches light the fiery fury
As they attack the furriery.
