YO, LAZY PEDANT…

GET ME THAT STORY BOOK

FROM YOUR DESK

DUSTY INDEED–

NOW BRING IT HERE–

SNEEZE IF YOU MUST.

OH, AND OPEN THE DOOR–

FRESH AIR–

SETTLES THE MIND–

NERVOUS, EDGY–

I KNOW THE TYPE.

LOOK IN MY MIRROR

SO, PAGE ONE–

ONCE UPON A TIME

THE VERY BEST OF TIMES.

A YOUNG OAF…

CRUEL WORD, THE TRUTH,

YET, APPRENTICE’S PAIN

LET’S AN OLD PEDANT

ENJOY THE QUIET DAYS

OF REFLECTIVE IDLENESS.

STUDENT & TUTOR

STAY AWHILE…

AND SIT WITH ME,

THE SUNSETS ARE SPECTACULAR

THE WIND COMES COOL

OFF THE HILL COUNTRY

AND THE SWALLOWS DART

AND SWOOP DINING

ON INSECTS VARIED

AS THE HEAT DROPS OFF

AND YOUR SWEAT COOLS.

IT’S NOT UNCOMMON

TO SEE A MESSAGE

IN THE CLOUDS.

ENOUGH WISDOM

TO TAKE YOU

THROUGH THE NIGHT.

ABIDE AWHILE WITH ME

COUGH, SNEEZE, BURP!

OKAY, ENOUGH PERCUSSION

NO, NOT WIND EITHER

(SO CRUDE, SO OBVIOUS)

OH WELL, WHINING STRINGS THEN,

LIKE GOSSAMER NETS

CARRYING US INTO MELODIES

THAT LIFT THE SPIRIT

INTO A RAIN OF WISDOM

OUR OLD BEDIVELMENTS FALL AWAY

AND WE DRINK FROM THE GOBLET

OF ETERNAL JOY

THE ELIXIR OF SORCERERS

FLYING ON THE VIBRATIONS

OF LOVE AND COMPASSION,

NOW, FURY WART HOGS

PICK UP YOUR BOWS…

AND A ONE, TWO, THREE–

BEGIN AGAIN, MY EIGHT FALLEN ANGELS!

EIGHT FALLEN ANGELS WITH TOTAL ATTENTION.

REST NOW…

DRINK THE COOL WATER

YOUR HEAD IS FIVER

YOUR MIND A STORM

PUT YOUR FEET UP

LIE IN FRONT OF THE FAN

POLAR AIR WILL COOL YOU

VISIONS OF PARADISE IN IGLOOS

RUBBING NOSES WITH WHITE BEARS

EATING COLD WATER FISH RAW

RICH IN HEART CLEANSING

SOON YOU WILL SMILE

AND LOVE THE WORLD

LIKE THE GREAT MOTHER

WHO DECORATES OUR ABODE

WITH HER FULL FIGURED SHADOWS

THE GENTLE EMBRACE OF HOME & SAFETY.

GODDESS OF NORTHERN LIGHTS

Youth Seeks Quality Pep Talk

Put him on a chair

Pour out life’s lessons–

You do that and save a life

From the wearying worries–

Give’m a conscience

For Gawd’s sake

And he’ll pick up the burthen

Of good Christians elsewhere,

Folks like the salt of the Earth.

Pour out their visions for you

Stranger though you be–

Only hope for humanity

I reckon for certain sure–

Everythin’ needs a table

What to lay on in the full Glory

Of God’s awakened healing eyes.

None of this amounts to much,

Take my troubled life as adult truth.

BOTHERSOME POTHERING…

Just beyond the meniscus

In the wavery veldt

A can opens with a pssst!

An arrow sinks a bull’s eye.

Does the bovine brain mind?

Who’s asking?

A rattling box of bones…

Twelve matches head to toe.

Sunset brings singing

Round a teepee of fire,

The water skins are fat.

Magic incanations fly,

A moan comes off the desert

Bracelets tinkle under stars–

Now sleep deep blends with uneasy snores.

“DON’T GO THERE”–

The Frog said to the Fly,

“You know I’m hungry. We all gotta eat.”

The fly flitted about with abandon.

The Frog shot out

His sticky curled tongue

And munched the fly.

The Frog burped loudly &

A wide smile followed,

“Fair warning, all you bugs!”

The Frog croaked.

“I live without guilt or fear.

That’s life, you miserable insects.”

The Frog shrugged and hopped away.

“Tough luck. We all gotta eat,” the Frog called out.

“Deal with it, you filthy bugs. We all gotta go.”

“Life is a nasty restaurant. We all gonna die!”
