Controversy Courts Opinion

entry picture

Love the lass that shows she’s strong, but touch her ass and blows are

thrown from a mercurial stance changing out,


Cut the grass and mow the lawn to fuck the past and know it’s

wrong with the proverbial pants hanging down,


A block to run is often fun to cock the gun

with the high sea on the seaboard,


A wad of gum if God were dumb to block your thumb

and your IP from the keyboard,


This is why something only leaves when courting

dumb and the dead find the ketamine,


It’s like fucking pulling teeth or forcing

Trump to condemn white supremacy,


A parrot dreams of better things if its life adorns a prize

of corn and apples bleeding black,


The keratin is everything if the rhino horns will grind

to form an aphrodisiac,


This is me not moving if the

hope is in a bad boat,


History unproven and

unwoven like a Van Gogh,


Split and see them broken and

devoted to the last row,


Bishops free the omen and the

woman with the glass rose.




Block their pleas and blame emotion to flock like sheep and

shame the motions of the sickest song,


Rock the sea and drain the ocean to walk on free of

pain and notions that you did us wrong,


We’re crying for our kid and mother while lying to the

rest and others seeking us to seal their grief,


Denying is your bread and butter providing we are

dead and brothers leaning on the willow trees,


There will be no place to love this winter if

townies are the fools that gambit,


Like mosquito eggs above a river then are

drowning in the pools of salmon,


Love the trees and time ‘til dust,

help us to then gain ashore,


Mother please be kind to us,

pelt us with your rain no more,


Read about the city’s moat that’s

burning in the blaze that’s left,


Reaching down the chimney’s throat and

searching for a place to rest,


The end black as seas and rocks in the

future with no heaven,


The hens have to see the fox before the

rooster can protect them.


“For the record – I’ve had hens that were just as tough and mean as a damn rooster.”

The end of the world couldn't come fast enough. And if time weren't a construct to bring down with it - I'd damn well say that I had a great time doing it.😈

Blessed be the peacemakers, for hopefully they can inherit the Earth we fucked up.
