Life During War Time (*)

They traded blood, bled, leapt hurdled, in war, toiled
Thundered subtle, explosions rubble erupt and boils
Flanked frigid conditions, crossed covert, admission where seas froze
Invaded nation’s capital, caravan arriving in droves

Misfit miscreants they flicker like a fire fly
they can stimulate the facts til they simulate a lie

left the cocoon in ruin, spurned from the flame of confusion
tapping the light as a wheel in the spoke promising fire then exhaling smoke.


Embracing the action, mere fraction of faction, poised penitent pose
In assassins pace, soldiers faced fetid burnt skin loose hue of rose
Pre-emptive mental lapse, hands clasped elapsed fast as fingers exposed
Attack from treetop canopy lands enemy, as battalions camp quiet below


Misfit miscreants they flicker like a fire fly
you can stimulate the facts til you simulate a lie

left the cocoon in ruin, spurned from the flame of confusion
tapping the light as a wheel in the spoke promising fire then exhaling smoke.



Slow pace laced the forest base as night slid its shade in slow
Bowed down, fertile feeding ground, sound sleeps, insurgency grows
Arose from the closed fence tense, electrical events stamps it closed
Bloated hose grows, distorted rubber clothes expand simmer, repose


Misfit miscreants they flicker like a fire fly
you can stimulate the facts til you simulate a lie

left the cocoon in ruin, spurned from the flame of confusion
tapping the light as a wheel in the spoke promising fire then exhaling smoke.



Escape to the south, weather reaps, pouts cloud laden maiden of old.
Mouth dry, estuary high, water fall, fallen blows multi bullet holes
The sun rips grips the tender tips of their eyelid down to their toes.
Over fortnight flight, escape the passing plight, packed up and drove


Misfit miscreants they flicker like a fire fly
you can stimulate the facts til you simulate a lie

left the cocoon in ruin, spurned from the flame of confusion
tapping the light as a wheel in the spoke promising fire then exhaling smoke.



Lengthened evening light highlights final plight, compete with those
Whose feet stayed dry under fire fight, contrite and festering wound grows
To an aching stench, bottled bench water and henchman clench their toes
Cramps, limit the stampede anxious repeat of goose steps aligned in tight knit rows


Misfit miscreants they flicker like a fire fly
you can stimulate the facts til you simulate a lie

left the cocoon in ruin, spurned from the flame of confusion
tapping the light as a wheel in the spoke promising fire then exhaling smoke.



Years turn years, tripped memories and cradled fears as time lifts, sinks and woes
Lacking feet and such, much, touched the hearts and must fuss with heroes
Flowers, laid at monument head, rows symmetrical as the life it shows
What the carnal cryptic gust, ashes spew ashes, withers to dust as the saying goes.

All Things Considered (*)

All things considered
I've had some lessons to learn
bridges to burn,
fences to mend
seas to churn,
ends to meet, rules to bend
i'v been sailing tides til they turn
All things considered
the world is bitter small
determine the splinter
with large heights to fall
enter the dragon
cautious to imagine
lights in flight, all in all
to crawl, odyssey of withdrawal
beg knees to the floor
bruised feet kick the door
as it swings shutting out opportunities for more

(refrain)

All things considered
I implore
keep arms stretched out for your
next chance to draw
conclusions from a war
mind mental strains
thinking that invasion's a cure
of minds that are pure
primary colors rising from the shore
create a fortress of solitude, demanding attitude
waves crashing along a different lattitude
asking questions like how you do
when answers teeter further from the truth
stepping out of my own telephone booth
worries tear me apart like like a lions tooth
guiding the way the way, sayer soothes
quicker than greyhounds wearing running shoes
showing my foes up with my stutter move

All things considered
I have shivered in the cold
stamped this font bold
waded oceans, cast form and mold
sold lies, with dry eyes despite ties
to the truth I uphold
with pedestal tipping foundation toppled
drop form foundations are old,
minus celsius causing cracks to unload
fervent faces a tear laces the folds
currently some cry, but boo hoo
the who do, that you knew
ghostly shadows, magic witch voodoo,
they use true views on this blown fuse
explodes, is rewired and turned loose
thru nightly news, peruses, causes chilly blues, it's curved clues
are what I use when I choose to move on to my next groove.

But all things considered
he hasn't withered, though we, murky in the dithers
people purported, supported, so he slithered
like a snake in the garden
mere immortal imparted
scaly as a lizard
knowledge denied us by This Lord
After one bite, spit out and saw the light,
didn't need it to discover that its in here
Now cast to the edge
as the apple sped
certain he delivered
us to sin, and now we want to be let back in
but instead cast out in this blizzard.




Media-ocracy (*)

Now that I've Battened down the hatches
patched up these holes with patches
removed all the pins from their latches
and though I've just run out of matches,
so flint and friction can't fashion
a blazing inferno reaction
you shouldn't be knocking my actions
I've formed a marvelous faction
bought a large patch of land
for really nearly a fraction
of the price they were askin
all because of
my smoke and mirror distractions
and because the economies static

It's at night that I invite
all the riots you incite
with your fires burning bright
stoke the passions to excite
casting words that we recite

So now you know what all the facts is
Veering towards these fabulous
action packed reactions
deteriorating mental lapses
here to capture all your tracks in
careful sewn tight packages
turn these thoughts into actions
into visible mental images
succinct visionary visages
glistening burning bridges
after removing all their hinges
on destruction based binges
I've carefully glimpsed in images
on projected high definition televisions
from the back of those hatch back GEO Prizms
trunks lifted to bass box collisions
but don't take my advice
given in these sessions
cause my PHD
is more show and less discression
an honorary degree
given by economists when we were in a recession
they were blindly wasting all your savings
call it aiding and abettin.
But if we wager with them their the victim
the SEC doesn't have it in them
so see the true villains off to Prison
so their back trading for their millions


It's at night that I invite
all the riots you incite
with your fires burning bright
stoke the passions to excite
casting words that we recite



This set it and forget get it addiction
turned paid programming affliction
"as seen on TV" dis-ease of invention
clever technical suspensions
of realistic consumer
reality based obsessions
got to have it ten seconds
and still we have yet to learn our lessons
store it up for post apocalyptic
consumer protections
but when doomsday comes a knocking
God will be kicking all their heads in.

Click of the channel conniption fit I can't handle
while depicting the angle of that box on the mantle,
this controller I handle, shut out the lights and the banter
now lighting this room with a candle,
cause I need all the power to display the televised vandals
to tell me what I can fix with the twist of the wrist,
caught in the midst of this suspenseful trist,
that lands us back in the mix
of the hollywood grind, finding our vision going blind
circular ocular binds that now can't tell the day from the night
once cast back into the light, hoping the pixelated delight
will avoid a much needed respite. despite the shutting of eyes
no-doze to keep up the fight, committing unthinkable crimes,
again is it day or the night, the blinds have shut out the light
but I don't care if its right, cause I've got this cabled supply.
