Losing Face

There’s something quite incendiary
About some folks I find
For push their button, yank their chain
And they reveal their mind

And with predictability
They bid as they are called
Reacting to the stimulus
In ways that let them fall

Fall prey to their conditioning
In ways like Pavlov’s dog
As each time they cannot resist
And end up in a bog

They always tumble in head first
With mouth a-gape; so wide
Or maybe with feet first again
To lose all face and pride

And then all full of bombast they
Exude just who they are
Least not for sure the smartest sorts
Of cookie in the jar

Rethread Our Heads

Lets rethread our heads
Unwind our minds
Through neural corridors
Potentially with active might
Synaptic strength and more
Controlling what we think and do
Project or indeed say
The way we rock to innervate
Our outcomes every day

Autumn Hysteria

Let’s cue autumn hysteria
It happens every year
Not in the sense that leaves drop gold
Or hops are making beer
But on a scale enormous
The worse that there has been
By far the biggest threat to man
For spiders have been seen
Invading every household
Intent one must presume
Of eating its inhabitants
The kids perhaps consume
But most devouring sanity
By stealth; weapon of fright
Arachnid armies on the move
And nightmares night on night!

Conscience

When will he hear his conscience?
The little thing that speaks
To keep him on a straighter path
And his behaviour tweak?

The guide that hides deep in him
That whispers through the years
That tells him what is right and wrong
When will he stop and hear?

And listen once again to it
This voice that lies within
To really, stop, appreciate
His conscience through the din

When will he pay attention to
All that it has to say
To cease his hell bent lifestyle
And open up one day

To reckon with this narrative
That guides and aids his heart
To cherish what is good in life
Before he falls apart

His conscience; his persuader
The plumb line on his soul
When will he stop and notice
And once again be whole?

Just Desserts

You’ve heard of Cinderella and
Her stepmother from hell
And the Queen in Snow White’s story
Who sincerely was not swell
And the witch that in the wardrobe
Had a country full of ice
Well have you met the latest one
Who isn’t very nice?

She’s dressed in the apparel
Of evil Disney ‘bitch’
And upsets everybody
With her tongue just like an itch
Or toxic social irritant
Quite ignorant at best
Eclipsing sun most days it seems
A parasitic pest

With lack of true humanity
And absence of what’s kind
Less voiding any empathy
No sugar on her mind
A woman of opinion and
A mouth the size of Mars
Just shame that she cannot be capped
And locked up in a jar

But doubtless as in all good tales
Antagonist will go
For like the rest she’ll have her time
And then as story flows
She’ll meet her end in tune with how
She’s lived and all that hurt
Will hopefully come back and bite
To give her just desserts

Be Sure Your Sins Will Find You Out

Be sure your sins will find you out
Your words be shown to be
Dishonourable; full of deceit
Like wood from rotten tree

The wire that will just trip you up
The noose around your neck
The shade in which you’re forced to lurk
The outlaw in the deck

The darkness where no light can shine
The cave in which you hide
The tones of black and dingy grey
And murkiness inside

And then when all is said and done
And judgement day arrives
Be sure the rod of justice will
Determine who survives

The stick that will beat out the truth
The rhythm and the rhyme
As radiance will expel your ways
To last the test of time

 

Be Like A Butterfly

Be like a butterfly
Wings outstretched
Taking to the wind
Fluttering aerodynamically
Intent on love
With wings of an angel
