Brown Bag Picnic

So I took

A brown bag lunch

To the picnic

And was accosted

By some university dudes,

But my day was saved

When my Chinese friend

Went into his Kung Foo stance,

And my Indian cowboy chum

Who knew fighting

From the reservation and ranch,

So we ended up

Having our picnic,

We each had a brown bag lunch

And the Ivy League idiot guys

Watched through black eyes,

Not a hunch in the bunch.

Forever Lovers

On a midnight wave

Of the sweet memory kind

You came rowing by,

Under full blown sails

We raced for anchor

And rocked away time

On the surging, rolling

Seas.

Today & Tomorrow

Where does today

Find you,

Have you missed

Or overlooked the

Fraud and the scandals,

Do you believe the cons

In the mainstream and

The social media dons

Playing at Pinocchio,

Are you in the in crowd

Of masks and distancing,

Staying at home

Obediently glistening,

Where will tomorrow

Find you,

Thinking for yourself

Or still under the spell

Of propaganda,

Totally convinced

We’re better than

Uganda.

Crazy Times Crazy Things

With the Rio remanent of 92

Pushing hard

Pushing through,

Corporations clamoring

The Three Stooges

Blocking. censoring,

The CCP smiling, basking,

I thought I saw you in a mask

I didn’t stop to ask,

You know the social distancing

People pointing, squealing,

Officers listening,

It might not have been you,

I wish I had risked arrest,

But in crazy times,

Crazy things

We do.

Idiots

As kids we practiced

Hiding under our desks

To be prepared in case

Of a nuclear attack,

Most of us quietly

Wondered,

How will this help?

As adults we practice

Standing six feet apart,

We wear masks and visors

And thin rubber gloves,

Stay home when we are told to,

And few dare to question,

How will this help?
