Vaunted Leaders

We have the guy

From Kiev on the run

Who’s to say if it’s

Right or wrong

In the crazy whacky

Ways of the world,

But it begs the question,

If he’s to be done,

What about Bush,

Blair, Harper, the Aussie

Dude, Obama and a host

Of others too numerous

To mention,

We show his house

To rile the crowd,

But what if we dropped

The shroud on a

British palace or the digs

Of any of our vaunted leaders.

I Thought About You

I thought about you

On this Zhivago day,

Snowing like crazy

In a way that is usually

Foreign to The Island,

Perhaps it’s the genetic

Code survival thing,

Naked skin wrapped

In furs, fire and warmth,

Maybe there are other

Reasons that I don’t

Understand or can’t or

Won’t put Into words.

Observing

If one can turn

The judgement switch,

The right or wrong buttons

Off,

Observing reveals

Ironic, comic situations,

Those wtf moments

Like the male – female clocks,

Seldom synchronized,

One ticking long last

The other,

The rules, the regulations,

The laws we put in place

To combat

The fundamental facts

Of nature.
