Thanks for Listening

Words of Victory

foment reform
human respect
reckless warfare

March two beats per foot

without respect
cannot escape dissent
unless peons accept hero

War is not the Answer
Ride a Bicycle

What is Freedom

42 days of Xmas
(... does it mean freedom from God?)

change my name to resident
a destination for 4th class female
catalogs and messages from the President
and all who are careless about retail

freedom. Buy what you all do not need,
Honor the religious holiday of greed.

Do you hear me?

Do you hear me?

To get the best effect of this poem it should be read with a test-to-speech synthisizer. I recommend Speakonia which can be downloaded from CFS Technologies for free.

I also recommend using RoboSoft One at a slower rate but feel free to experiment. It should have a metallic and commerical ring to it.

Home town revelation

Press Start to Logout

Riding past a Lutheran cemetery yesterday
right across the road from a Catholic one,
I got to thinking, are they still members there?
How about the other sects or heathens
Do the dead have to finally make a choice
Are there agent saints that force them to be
Lutherans or Catholics? Maybe that is how
crematoriums get their business— a 3rd way—
Picture the signs on the road to the pearly gates:

With wine (tastes great)
Without wine (less filling)
Fire water/hold the water
We only sell the best in promises,
no destination guarantees or refunds,
decisions of the judge are final.

Kind of like greed in the crap shoot of life
Only here when your number comes up someone else wins
Grave maker, undertaker, bone shaker
Counting on remorse to shame survivors
Pay the toll to get past the gate to claim their estate

The dead they got no choice except L, C or O
the way it looked to me as a passerby
at the cemetery on the road
where I rode,
opposite the arrows painted on the highway,
back to life in a small town
where church steeples are the high points below elevators.

Is a picture of ABSTRACT not baseball?

Taking Jack Abstract

Berra’s mitt-in
Primordial Essence
Can be seen just by looking. Four
curve balls.
