Rage, rage against the crying of the mite

Do not go meekly into that Odeon night,
Old age should rant and rave at kids these days;
Rage, rage against the crying of the mite.

Though wise men of their ringtones know; silence is right,
Because their words have brooked no fight they
Do not go meekly into that Odeon night.

Gentle folk, four bucks a Coke, or sipping Sprite
Their simple needs unmet indeed, as Trailers play
Rage, rage against the cying of the mite.

Wild ones who yell and shout at hero's plight,
And learn, too late, they missed dialogue along the way,
Oh do keep it to yourself, All right? 

Brave men, now deaf, senses dulled by conversations trite
Blind eyes turned to racous rude display, 
From the flinging of the Mike and Ikes.

And now, my friends, there in the Odeon night,
Curse or praise, but behave as befits your years, I pray
Do not go meekly without a fight.
Rage, rage against the cying of the mite.

There once was a ram

There once was a ram in a zoo
Who never had time to be blue.
While some rams were sad
And others got mad
His secret, he said, was fuck ewe

Death is an acceptable excuse...

Death is an acceptable excuse for an absence
Indifference much harder to bear
Well used as I am to perpetual distance
For the dead, one can compose a prayer

For the dead, one can breathe, and grieve, remain and endure
And now breathing I do much the same
Keep obserdevotions, prepare for the worst, unsure
And wait, as pawns do, movements in game

When all good deeds....

When all good deeds have been repaid
the Hero gets a weighted blade
the heroine lies a ruined wreck
ashes and sack cloth now bedecked

Dragons die with all they hoarded
Loyalty goes unrewarded
You never see the ones you serve
Yet always get what you deserve

The Vampiress

Your honeyed eyes
belie a deeper gaze
which beckons nigh
yet fades in light of day

Your wanton smile
is hungry for the flood
that swallows while
it drowns all that is good

Your ragged breath
breathes deep surrounding scent
exhales death
and wonders where life went.

That poems professing love...

That poems professing love
often mention gods
must show that as above
so below goes on.
The lord in the lover lies
now belief and faith are known
the divine in the mortal is recognized
and the way to true heaven is shown.

The Port City

I found her by the water
that lady of great renown
the salty spray like jewels
bedecked her trailing gown

The web of lights men bought her
she wore more well than any crown
to delight the eyes of fools
for the maid is not the gown
