Not make a sound…

Cat at play

Cat at play

actually you look much better upside down
in fact, this whole world looks better that way
imagine if all that was wrong was righted
blind people were suddenly sighted
violent curs became cats with fur
Mad hatters would be completely sane
Alice would never wonder again
guns and street drugs couldn’t be found
war would become silent, not make a sound…

Happy All Hallows Eve…

Jack-o-lanterns

Jack-o-lanterns

Everything is black and gold,
Black and gold, to-night:
Yellow pumpkins, yellow moon
Yellow candlelight;

Jet-black cats with golden eyes
Shadows black as ink,
Firelight blinking in the dark
With a yellow blink

Black and gold, black and gold
Nothing in between-
When the world turns black and gold
Then it’s Halloween!

Lost another they’ll never get back…

Turkey vultures

Turkey vultures

when I was younger, my ideals were to blame
such lofty heights, oh what a shame
this is the picture that I never knew
everything always hidden from view
‘good, better, best’, my teachers would say
words that still haunt me till this day
perhaps a genius but underachiever
essay depressing, must be a griever
now those de sade’s who always wore black
lost another they’ll never get back…
