A Troubled Mind

Training one’s mind to not think in

Circles can be tricky if one is focused on

Other things, besides what is happening

At the present moment. Sometimes, we

Get trapped in the past or the future, and

We forget to enjoy right now, we lose any

Effective concentration, and short circuit

Our ability to communicate with the ones

Around us who really count. We also do

Not tell ourselves what we need to hear,

That times of trouble will pass, or have

Passed, and that we will be okay. Either

We will survive, or we will not, but

Neither result is reason to fear. As the

Apostle Paul wrote, “Oh, Death, where is

Thy sting?” So many things cause us fear,

And yet most of it is an illusion. As FDR

Said, “We have nothing to fear, but fear

Itself!” Those are truly words to live by.

Laughs

Heavy links tribe silliness barfing only

Plotting old realizing readiness comfort

Cranky cowards weep loudly on summits

Above losing billfold challengers amongst

Imposter attitude munchers quality yes

Real quality, I know. It’s so sick. Laughs.

Fooling Nobody

Lost mermaids sing of trains running

Above the sea on bridges in bays by seas.

Longing for a ride the side of thanks and

Emblems salutes the coming of the dawn.

Following the sound of deep sadness, the

Innocent children evaluate the legislation

Passed by fools and other rulers who

Doubt the effectiveness of the existing

Heads of state. Humbugs and grouches,

Grinches and dragons, and other funny

Dinosaurs come to grips with the fact

That the end is coming fast, so they

Better do something quickly. Same song,

Different dance. They are fooling nobody.

TV, Power

Tweety boing reach reeeeach! Loud crispy

Vibes swallow envious tank tubes orange

With flavor, scented like lavender among

Traipsing benevolent sounds, quite stinky

But interesting, all the same. Howdy bee

Slender apple sea round dimple drinking

Down episodes of old soap opera stars in

Striking clothing and slicked back hair or

Tossled to show chaotic, irrational psyche

Babbling about whatever came to mind

When the silly script was written. Power.

Ourselves

Slander fouls meager trials for trying

Times. Don’t you wish the gossip kings

And queens would leave us all alone? I

Know. I’ve done it many times, but some

People just like to tear others apart like

It’s a damned sport! Just drop the act. No

One is any better or worse than anyone

Else. We are all humans just trying to be

Ourselves.

To Disagree

Baby promises lead to grown up values,

Peeking through the clouds, just being.

Do you wonder, sometimes, if anyone

Cares about the types of ideas you have in

Your head? I do. It seems family and

Friends don’t always agree. I guess that is

The nature of humanity, that is, to

Disagree.

The Pinnacle

Boom locks reveal lamb chop tango beets

Singing state rolling phones veering onto

Lakes of stone crying rainbows hallelujah

Boy malls cool estate reeking of sacks in

Baskets about preventing disease like

Symptoms in tiny animals crawling

Across stupid cackling buntings huts we

Were weird we want space and cookies

And awesome video games to play all

Night long. Wasted minds are the

The pinnacle of our civilization, after all.

Maybe

Loud meandering Goldilox keeps pilfering

Food bowls she’s insane she’s a cat no I

Know she’s not you are hungry, I get it

Leaving moss on shoes is like an oak tree

Losing it’s nerve hair falling out like a

Cancer and chemo and all that radioactive

Terribleness that plagues the sick the

Lonely the desperate oh, for another try

At it but if it works to save my life maybe

It’s worth it. Maybe.

A Shame

Hello seeking bell ringers zooming circles

Around ground keepers yuuuuuge yes off

Forward friends cruel comments onto me

Pile into vehicles speed down tracks now

Polls say never again no it’s a shame oh

I hate it when greedy rich people want to

Squeeze the vulnerable and helpless for

Just a little more and each together adds

To a billion more for their silk pockets it’s

A shame

Zimbabwe

Healing homesteads vendors jump heads

Kicking lips friends confront wanting bits

Jeers cells fears green years dents creases

Poison rolls fusion bears goosebumps am

Love flips weeks trolls growls hits zoom

Lop review yonder wonder sooner than

Tomatoes goofy lids cool rear Zimbabwe
