Writer's Block

Knock off a chip of the old _____ ?

Irregular expressions make crowds balk

With more drama than The Toccata by Johann Sebastian Bach

Facing such absurdity one cannot help but laugh

Mutating rhymes twist tongues so none can scoff

You were given no choice, now hats must doff

Enlist and learn these skills from this verbal prof

Neither free will nor destiny are worth speaking of

Whatever shall ye do when push comes to shove?

Only wizened fools get it right; aye there's the rub!

Ode To The Grey

Ode To The Grey

"Once more into the fray
Into the last good fight I'll ever know
Live and die on this day
Live and die on this day

~ from the film The Grey starring Liam Neeson; for more info visit: HERE

Canto I (Laments)

There was no answer in the sky
Although it lay open wide
Ages passed, millions died
No one knew precisely why
Mute meteor showers aside
No overt signs were ever espied
Humans from nature could not pry
Secrets that her cruelty hides
While obvious truths go on denied
Ponder this and then apply it

 Canto II (Amends)

We are no better than the wolves
Or mythic beasts with cloven hooves
Still any stain a stoic removes
Until by right — our wrong improves
