ole man winter afar off from now
Perhaps envisioning cold temperatures will allow
late summer dawg days here – (a best western suburb
of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) to grin n bear - how
ever sluggish n lethargic one doth feel
inducing sweat tamped from moist brow.
bring thee an imagistic attempt – to give ya pow
er if mind over matter u will envision on par with cow
jumping o’er the moon – by dint of mental focus right now!
Dickens Christmas carol revisited by this nicked saint
frigid aire - From at mo sphere
hammering and whipsawing debris that with an angry flare
cuz Mother Nature - fed up to here
(re: top of head) for humanity scurrying without a care
Leaving heavy-duty footprints blotting
out those of Santa Claus' rein deer
on a yearly mission to deliver yule tide
to this bloke - who haint no bobbing
crotchety old man per radical side
of the establishment, but considers all tha hoo ha
over Xmas devoid of divine pride
and prejudiced against t'other days of the year
where vices many do not hide
so, i hasten to clarify no intent to pop
any holiday balloon - only virtue blithely do glide
past majority intent on grabbing, rattling chains
like ghosts of Christmas past
so for that reason this liberal democrat did chide
how mass of consumers married materialism like a bride
forsaking jolly Rogers Fred ship (ah chew...i cut me a gold)
where care does in rare form abide
or if discernible with a tiny Tim burr
coal less sing into miserliness and meanness like a cur
mud gin golem with thick wooly fez e wig
that easily passes faux pas fur
as protection against the brutal coldness
sans ignorant and want that murmur
barely audible in contest witnessed by scrooge
who as fiction tries to unfetter himself
and for the sake of Jacob marley begins to stir
prophetic for selfishness and greed globally extant
asper this doctrine a best buy
allows, enables and provides well oiled machinery
of wealth held by rich gal or guy
thus shackling a disproportionate populace
to feel weighed down in heavy (like alice) in chains
though invisible said allow
stronger than steel strait jackets well nigh
hold captive i.e. colonialism revisited,
where justice does not app ply
in this interconnected World Wide Web,
whence accolades applauded
to those who act sly - and try
cajoling, finessing, insinuating broken,
empty, rustling grimly with hollow promises
analogous to a tail stripped from asking "Y"
undulating, triangulating, strangulating,
et cetera in a "V" ness flytrap essentially
spurring me to consider
December twenty fifth
nuttin boot poppy crock and pap!
How we observe and how we reflect.
The observations and reflections of a traveller in a foreign land.
The facades of a perfect home.
This peom is about a woman in my life, who is suppose to be there for me but is not.
Dreams, desires, id and ego.
