“ Apologies ”- to expiate demise –

Oh so often we apologize

Just to make amends,

Or avoid being chastised

We effort find portend,

Till failing begs apprise

We seek impede condemn,

Fated waning enterprise

Of which we learn contend,

As time gorges on our pride

That leaves but dust to mend,

With a soupçon of recall guise

For the loss of once held friend,

With otiose apologies to expiate demise!

“ Living ” ~ in googleland ~

Convinced I remain,

To do without

Crutch or cane,

Held to steady

Wobbles inane,

Of insecurity

Ever menacing,

Can but impede

One being free,

Chose live outside

That google spree,

In a world aside

As content absentee,

From time crippling

State of computerized,

At nerdish pace degree

Will charade thus to flee,

To their googleland addiction!

“ Cynicism ” ~ a political legacy ~

 

‘Tis but the hand

Of skepticism,

Politicos impart

The cryptic seed,

Which germinates

Its sorry feed

That instigates

Such pessimism,

While in the face

Of their betrayal

Cynicism flies,

To force impede

Inertia’s deed,

Chose let slide

Our trust naïve,

Turns to deride

Their legacy,

Now earth’s peril 

Would see it turn

To lifeless dust,

Before the end

Of meager ride

Life did provide!

 

“ Breaking Rules ” ~ that favoured fools ~

 

I can yet think

Of years misused,

Forced to ignore

Such clever ruse

That favored not

Being explored,

And so abused

Left us indifferent

To breaking rules,

Thus giving way

To satisfying

Our aspirations,

Might offer why

We did survive                                             

Beyond an easy alibi…

 

Of breaking rules

We set the bar,

Avoiding lures

That favored fools,                                 

And might abide

Impede our stride,

If memory serves

Most rules that be

We’d broken every three,

With honorable intention!
