Parade of cliff divers
Crash upwards in reverse and splash;
No one bats an eyelash:
“Words can’t affect our cash, our bonds;
Just wave your magic wands–
Ugly ducklings are swans; all’s well.”
Buy stocks and hear the bell:
It tolls for you; this hell gets worse.

Straw Man


I used to see you here,
A ray of sunshine cheer and clap
Of thunder lightning zap,
An energizing tap, a boost–
A flashing arrow Zeus’d,
A brilliant bolt now loosed (a grin).
Ah, well, but that was then:
I cannot find you anywhere.
