Poem: Harry’s Skis

My old neighbour, Harry McKnees, Fashioned himself some marshmallow skis, And decided to hit the slopes.   But poor old Harry didn't know, It's better in winter with plenty of snow, If you want the skis to run fast.   So he climbed to the top of Breakneck Rock, His skis tied up with a...

Poem: Humanity

Underneath our skin aren't we all the same? Flesh and blood, a beating heart, two kidneys and a brain, Ligaments and tendons, a larynx and some glands, All of us are human, the work of the same hand.   Don't we all have livers? And intestines large and small? Why, the blessing of a bladder... Continue Reading →

Poem: Sacrifice

Taxes go up, it's only fair, We've all got to chip in and pay our share, But, you can see, I've a lot on my plate, So my taxes will stay at a lower rate.   We hired too many of one colour of people, And since our priority is making things equal, You must... Continue Reading →

Finally, in his misery he wished: "Give me any life but this."   Next morning Abdul awoke from sleep, And could scarce believe the sight he saw,... Continue Reading →

He worked at a restaurant five nights a week, As a valet attendant but sometimes he'd sneak, In the back of the kitchen where food was prepared, He'd scratch at his scalp and ruffle his hair, And get his dandruff all loose...

Poem: Grandad

My grandad had a hacksaw with teeth just like a shark, I put it in my backpack when we visited the park. I threw it in the pond but the hacksaw didn't swim, It had teeth like a shark but it didn't have the fins.   My grandad had false teeth as straight as piano... Continue Reading →

Poem: Lost Time

It may be long, it may be years, Until it's gone, but then the tears, For our brief time, how cheap we sold it, Gave our minds to touchscreen altars, Made our gods of all that shined, We fit the mould, we toed the line, Chased the pretty bursts of smoke, No sense of worth,... Continue Reading →

Poem: Corrupted

The guilty soul fears silence, The proud heart cannot sleep, Not a smile in envy was, Ever more than just skin deep.   The bitter soul devours, Yet still he wastes away, The thankless man is blinded, Though he walks in light of day.   The stingy soul will wither, The angry heart goes mad,...
