At All Levels

So this gal

Comes into the shop

And when she leaves

The sugar bowl is gone,

You say what the hell!

Upon reflection you realize,

Some people rob banks,

Some steal sugar bowls,

And some in three-piece suits

Screw you out of the commission

On a million and s half dollar yacht sale,

There’s assholes at all levels.

I read that the center of the earth

Is four billion years younger

Than the rest of it,

Hmmm …

I read that the universe

May be a hologram,

Hmmm …

So I wrote some lines

And thought about you

Or was it just an illusion,

But then the infusion

Of perfume and the smell

Of your hair

Dancing into the confusion,

Left me totally distracted.

Pass The Peas

It’s not an easy thing

 Sitting back contemplating

The possibilities,,

What with rising temperatures

With rising seas,

Where would you place

Millions of displaced people?

Would it create

Multiple Middle Easts?

Is that why for many

It’s pass the peas

And straight denial?

Hell, if it were real

Would governments be issuing

Building permits at sea level,

Would they be pounding

Sand into the oceans

Creating islands and runways?

Pass the potatoes

And forget that changing


Get on with living.

Holding On To The Moon

Holding on to the moon

What else to do ?

The days of the scorching sun

And the whistling wind

Had long passed,

The moon seemed as quiet

As their lives now were,

As cold as their bones

In the late night air,

And all the romance

Of the long love affair,

Danced in their stare

Holding on to the moon.
