26 to own

Twenty-six years this Earth has known

Of a pure flower by our Lord sown

This Beauty He called to mourn and groan

A world forgetting it’s not its own.

 

Into such wisdom you have grown

Because to prayer your spirit’s prone.

To wife and mothers station blown

By calling Abba’s will your own.

 

Now you tend lambs that moan

If they don’t get an icecream cone

Sometimes on and on they drone

These Eden’s joys we call our own.

Boondoggled
Thinking Smoggled
Thickly stew
Shoot a cockatoo
Up.

Flummoxed
Feeling poxed
Angsty poo
Tie a kangaroo
Down.

Kanoodled
French poodled
Doggy doo
Step away you
Sideways.

Policenated
Yankee doodled
Good for you
Life is through
Over.

Emily Park.

Odd is she

In her

Honda odyssey.

 

Reversing out

It got

Knocked about.

 

Going forward

It was

Cruelly gored.

Hypo Critters

Do what I want

Don’t want what I do

Do it right now

Before trouble finds you.

Sometimes it finds me

Troubling my soul

Found inconsistent

Falling in a hole.

Those Hypo Critters

Dig traps everywhere

Promptly forget them

And tumble in unaware.

I’d certainly shoot them

Except that I know

The beast travels inside me

Wherever I go.

Yes, I’m rather torn

I hate them so well

But because I love me

Whacking Hycrits won’t sell.

“Christian” contortions gain
Biblical proportions when
Counseling professionally
Can’t we see
Ain’t no lunch free
In this world’s
Economy.

The game’s now spin
No dice for sin
Today
If I want to play
Your joke is heavy
Your burden flight
From grace and truth
And it was night
Run holding the torch
Of blind mans sight.

In one long sentence
Dean laid law down
Words of life to me
‘Cause I’d nearly drowned
Under the proud assumption
The psychounlogical gumption
That tries to marry
Oil with water
William to Harry.

The contorted are thwarted
But refuse to know
Nature won’t play ball
Where they need to go
So they beat words down
To queer shapes and sizes
Changing God’s rules
Winning booby prizes.

Meanwhile tamed
Man-pleasers haw and hem
More hope for a fool
He should counsel them.
