Crapper John

Inspired by various events

When sh-t happens,
Crap hits the fan;
No ifs, ands, or buts left unsoiled.

Hell breaks loose,
Time is squandered;
Stress levels up the wazoo.

Comfort comes at a premium,
Think Charmin vs. a generic product;
The john the only source of solace.

Downpour

Wind lashed like the claws of a cat,

Rain poured without regard for the dead,

Bodies six feet under surfaced and floated,

Ancient ones were decayed,

The recently buried seemed freshly bloated,

So marks the beginning of monsoon season.

Poetic Just Us (An encore)

(5th and last of a mini-series of taking poetic license)

Three players on the sidewalk,
Watching passersby and listen to their talk;
That’s just us.

Together we used to make music;
We were quite therapeutic;
That was just us.

We played rock, funk, and blues;
Now we never make the news;
That’s just us.

We’ve been put out to pasture,
Open to any snatcher;
That’s just us.

Poetic Injustice

(4th of a mini-series of taking poetic license)

They made their decision.
They went over each question.
Still, there’s no justice.

Their collective mind is made;
All considerations were weighed.
Still, there’s no justice.

The more the lawyer is paid,
The more the jury is swayed;
All I see is injustice.

Poetic Just Us (Redux)

(3rd of a mini-series of taking poetic license)

At first it was the land and the sea
That separated you and me
Before we could be just us.

Then your hours got shorter,
And Skype made it a little better
Before we could be just us.

Hard to believe you are here with me,
But can you turn off the TV?
Before we can be just us.

Get horizontal,
So we can be full frontal
And finally we can be just us.
