Sunday Afternoon

.

Another scone…? Chocolate cake?

Thank you, I don’t mind if I do.

Children playing on the lawn

There for all the world to see

A picture perfect family

Sunshine on my face

But a shadow on my back

Casts its weight

In variegated shades of black

Goodbye Mister Zee

Post No. 831

Goodbye Mister Zee

.

The masses are restless

After a long sleep

They thought they could trust you

But instead what did you do

Fleeced them and kept them

In subservient positions

Untrained and earning a pittance

Conned them with meaningless words

Surrounded yourself with comrades

Afraid to speak the truth–

Even under oath

Fear is the currency of value

But at last the tide is turning

People’s hearts are burning

And Elvis has left the building

Reflections

Reflections

.

Sweep the dark dank and dusty corners of my heart

Cleaning out the debris of the past

What’s gone is gone and will never be the same

New beginnings with only myself to blame

.

My life seems to be

— on reflection — full of new starts

But I fail always

— in detection — to find the underlying

.                                                imperfection

.

Is it that which goes before a fall

Or perhaps shape-shifting blame

Or none at all but many many more

God help me find what I am searching for…

H E L P

.

memory gaps

recalls lapse

panic saps

……      my reason

.

clear lines

cloudy times

mental trips

hanging on

……      by fingertips

.

searching for a name

……      in the confines of my brain

.

and the more i stress

……      the worse it gets
