Don’t Ask Me Why

What you see here
as you read through
let me be clear
is not for you
I write for me
and let you see
my mind's designs

Grumpy Old Fool

Though you’ll show more
belligerence 
I’ll hope for your
deliverance
from the darkness
of the life’s mess
that grounds you down

Even Losers

The battles fought
with words or guns
are all for naught
if everyone’s
on the wrong side
behind their pride
so all must fall
