A Rhyme from Romper Room
Jack and Jill hit the campaign trail / To fetch a bushel of voters / Jack fell down for being a clown / And Jill went Galluping forward Up got Jack from his stumbling act / As f…
War of the Words

in the shadows of waning light
two senescent lovers lie / between sheets of waning light. the moon spins the dis·s·ever·ing tale / of their relentless nothingness. / apathetic eyes beseech the dark / f…

Wrinkled whispers / Kiss my skin / Leaves of life change as / Autumn begins Cultivated currents / Of mellowed mind / Carry me to manors of / Seasoned rhyme <…

Annals of Abraham

Pregnant night aborts the dawn
Poxing the earth below
Festering fields of human hate
Drown reason in irrational throe

Hissing hostility pierces the sky
Scattering molecules of fear
Children dodge metal raindrops that fall
Between labyrinths of cemented shields

Chaotic cannons violate the air
Echoes of terror pervade
Blasts of rancor tattoo a country
God and Allah turn off their hearing aids

Iron tears stain inherited sands
Black rays of two suns incinerate life
Hagar and Sarah look down on their progeny
Shepherds of war herding the faceless to strife

Land scarred by military malevolence
Politics stifles compromising breath
Two nations hang from the gallows of righteousness
Slowly choking themselves and each other to death

Fundamentalists forge our forsaken future
The media exploiting their holy hate
CNN hacks away at the truth with deception
As Hope lies dying in an open grave

City of Avenues
Metal rain falls on the City of Avenues / Launched hatred tears into urban skies / Falling thunder pierces fleshed emotion / Hammurabian thought precipitates / Eye for an eye Metal rain falls on the City of Avenues / Atrophied molecules of amity die<b…
War of the Words
A page unfolds / horizontally / into a vertical universe… Vowels and Consonants conjugate / charcoaled characters draw their words / silented Syllables scream bloody murder / to the Sentence Structure Warlords. Morphemes of meaning resu…
Lionhearted
A lion dwells in your sentient savanna / Persistence and purpose his badges of strength / Urban forests breed banality and bromide / Seize him and purge Man of his shallow decent Iron rods of conformity rust perception / Towers of compliance stunt natu…
Cogito Ergo Sum
Trees of autumn weep their beauty / Aging rainbows fall onto an anemic earth / Intellectual tears of / I think therefore I am / Cry molecules of philosophy / Over deaf grasses of high tech generations / I am the last leaf / Clinging desperately onto…
