More Sadder or Funnier Than:

More sadder or funnier than:

An old girl friend getting stung on the bare butt by a wasp while sitting on an outhouse toilet seat.

Now it’s your turn..


Please pass the situational reasoning
Rational invitations castrating
Assaulting senses aberrational
Blood drips, cools pooling gravitational

Rendezvous Blues

Blue Eyes

Indigo, azure to cyan’s hue
No purity ever so true
Patrons can see the obvious clue
Why her place is called Rendezvous Blues

Over Hearing

Pushing past the melodyvintage-microphone-vector-thumb2289339
The words absorbing my soul
Billowing full of buoyancy
Awareness does extol

Replacing angst with calming
Opens the ears of the blind
Hearing eyes weeping seeing
All my senses intertwined

Crying Man


She laughs and I cry
It brings a tear to my eye
Only God knows why

There Will Come a Time


Wished away the reality of my life
Torn asunder with banality’s strife
Babies, bosses and most always the wife
My cup runneth over bubbling with rife

I point my own finger at me, my mind
Putting pen to paper I did consign
In fact if it wasn’t for me, my con line
Who at twenty doesn’t think it will be fine

I fell to bottom of a deep deep mine

Said what I had to and it’s time to choose
The next rhyming word, please choose not to lose

Pain again, again
Pills. relieving then amen
Pain again the bane
