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.

The Consequence Of Chaos

The idiot fringes

Raced to promote banning

Anything that didn’t fit

Into their narrow minds and vision,

From freedom of speech,

Songs and playlists,

Pronouns and words

To gender classification,

The neocon philosophy

Echoed in jest as its hands

Directed the music

The politically correct,

Neutered mass danced to,

Unaware they were dancing

Closer and closer

Towards the fingers and the grasp

Of the hands

They were trying to run away from.
