Terrorist’s never simply come clean

Klashnekoff  laying on the ground at the scene

Not just discarded, deliberately left

For a victim in the future, another parent bereft


In it’s stock an evil surprise is hidden

Placed there to do, the devils insidious bidding

So that when in the lab the expert takes aim

Triggers an explosion, from the stock shoots a flam...

Near lifetime since elapsed

All dished if in conjunction

or dealt out somewhat less

notoriety I got to earn


None were expectations

or any of bartered trade


Folly proved true essence

of calling spade a spade


Gave in to most situation

A Sea Poem

entry picture


Deep within me  
lay a sea poem 
of long ago;
where air is fresh 
but blusters wildly
when southerlies blow, 
slick and slimy 
mud between the toes- 
mangrove's brackish home.
Whitecaps dance 
in the open channel 
close to where corals grow.
But further than the distance
