The Longest Day

Solstice dawn
Insistent cries
Of solitary bird
The only thing heard...

Life As A Battle

Sometimes you have to
Fight, give it your all,
Wade into the mix,
Bare fists, hard ball,
All in, like Caesar's
Conquest of Gaul...

Where Is My Daughter?

Half empty bag of diapers clutched by a
Stunned woman from south of the border,
Her child ripped away by the uniformed ones
In the name of national law and order...

This sad and bitter action
Will someday end, when
That country is,
Great again...

Ignored

The lessons of history,
It is generally agreed,
Are written in books
We never read...

Mellow Days

Can’t be bothered
Can’t be fired
The simple joy of
Being retired...

Parallel Slumber

Solstice week
Restful night
Quiet bleak
Everyone asleep
In a peace their
Snores will keep

Dismalland

Splendid Friday morning
Thronging in a Disney dream
Myriad Asian faces all
Variations on a common theme
