Morality For The Lost
A demon danced in dead man’s shoes,
His face turned to the rain.
An angel raged on through the night,
Adrift on seas of pain.
A babe new born an orphan lost,
Alone and powerless.
A demon too far gone to curse,
The angel cannot bless.
The babe, a child, grows up alone,
Ward of a careless state.
And still the demon dances on,
The angel curses fate.
The child becomes a young man now,
Most think he has no chance.
He’s seen the angel, knows his rage,
Has learned the demon’s dance.
He’s done some bad, he’s done some good,
He’s learned what’s right and wrong.
It isn’t what you do but why,
That drags your soul along.
A demon dances in the rain,
He wears a young mans face.
And those who see him watch in awe,
Angelic rage and grace.
He sees no absolutes in life,
In terms of wrong or right.
To him there’s only shades of grey,
Invisible at night.

So I believe and know this truth,
I am the same as you.
Not in the way I speak or look
Nor in the things I do.
It’s what we are that is the same,
This we should keep in mind.
And understand the falseness of,
Divisions that you find.
What matter gender, race or creed,
We dream our dreams as one.
To love and laugh and live our lives,
Content when we are done.
So next time someone does you wrong,
Think on your own mistakes.
Remember They are You and I,
Be kind for all our sakes.

I’m A Very Rash Person
I almost wrote no verse today,
My focus is not there.
I’ve got the plague, the walking death,
My skin hates me I swear.
It’s blistered, lumpy, burning, raw,
The itching drives me mad.
It’s spreading fast it’s spreading far,
My face looks really bad.
I do not know just what it is,
My doc’s a busy guy.
I really hope to see him soon,
Sometime before I die.
I think it might be fungal but,
It yet may prove me wrong,
It may have been bacterial,
Or viral all along.
But either way it matters not
I’m cutting this one short,
To fix myself another drink,
Doc Booze my last resort.

Immortal words upon the page,
A lasting legacy.
Which unborn generations yet
May read and think of me.
For in these words a man may live,
Far longer than his days.
That’s why one must choose carefully,
Exactly what he says.
Who wants to be remembered as,
A bully or a thug?
As a lackwit or a drunkard,
Can’t live without his jug?
I’d rather be forgotten than,
Remembered in that way.
That my words might touch a heart,
As ‘ neath the sod I lay.
So hopefully my verse will find,
It’s way into your soul.
And living there, you’ll pass it on,
That is this writers’ goal.

The End Is Pricey
Beware! Beware! The end is near!
It’s nearly here I swear.
A doom, a doom is coming soon,
It’s doomy everywhere,
With doom and gloom and worse in store,
Trust me the end is nigh.
With all that is about to end,
What cause have I to lie?
I did not ask to see these things
I did not ask for fame.
Just buy my books and videos,
To learn more of my claim.
Economies are going to crash,
The terrorists arrive.
With plagues and famines, wars and such,
Most people won’t survive.
But in my books I’ll show you how,
To make it through the end.
I’ll help you prep to face it all,
So buy my vids my friend.
I’ve got the kit, the bugout bags,
For you and all your kin.
So buy your gear and guns and such,
You’ve got to spend to win.
Don’t worry if the end’s not yet,
It’s coming any day.
So hurry now and start your prep,
As long as you can pay.

For glory and for honour and,
To uphold what is right,
These are the answers given when,
They ask us why we fight.
They point to battles fought and won,
To tyrants we’ve destroyed.
Talk like we’re saving everyone,
Each time we are deployed.
No longer are things black or white,
The wars have gotten grey.
Who’s in the right, who’s in the wrong,
Now changes every day.
We do our best to do it right,
Trust those who ship us out.
But when you read between the lines,
Sometimes can’t help but doubt,
But still we stand and still we serve,
And still we question not.
And when we’ve given everything,
We’re tossed aside. Forgot.

Don’t Mind My Mind
Oh what a wonder is the mind,
Its so full of fears and dreams.
It’s wider , higher, deeper and,
So much larger than it seems,
It’s every God that ever was,
And the Goddesses as well.
It’s every heaven ever dreamed,
And it gave us every hell.
The mind is what DaVinci used,
It let Rembrandt do his thing.
And minds wrote every single song,
That the greatest voices sing.
All the beauty and the horror,
All the things you love or ban.
Do not come from Gods or Devils,
Only from the minds of man,
So keep all your religions,
For from this I’m truly free.
Not controlled by your illusions,
What I am is up to me.
