make a flush and feel
that you have a winning hand
so when your chips spill
in the pot and things seem grand
don’t cry when four aces land

When power leads man toward arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the areas of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of his existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.
John Fitzgerald Kennedy

in the four-seater out house
it's plop plop fizz fizz
oh, what a relief it is...
out before you're overcome

the result which lives
in memories you employ

oozes on the page
are unctuous platitudes
which may be the rage
but with today’s attitudes
I’d rather have gratitudes

and Donald warbles
with tweets, their vendetta’s trounced;
heads will roll but some just bounced

it can't tell the truth
if it did it would tell you
that I did not shave my head

‘till I’m in my grave
and it always causes strife
but I guess that is my life

my wife says nothing
whether I shave or do not
she thinks it makes me bristle?

when I walk through the tall grass
and a large thistle
jabs my ankle or my ass;
my lawnmower needs more gas
