A Poem From One of My Chapbooks

SNAKES IN GREENER GRASS

beware my friends

there are poisonous snakes

slithering in the green grass

we love to walk in green grass

we love to search for greener

pastures just beware of the snakes

smiling snakes who smile at you

friendly snakes who want to hug you loving snakes who want to kiss you

helpful snakes who want to help you

solve all your problems

snakes who smile and bare bloody fangs

snakes who hug and squeeze until your bones break

snakes who kiss and bite until the poison takes

snakes who help you feel comfortable

while they take your place

in your deathbed your eyes open

as you realize it is far too late

after you feel the horror spreading

from the terror of the deadly snakes

A Poem From One of My Chapbooks

It Pays to Behave Oneself Wisely

it pays to behave oneself wisely

in the halls of polity

where your reputation is in a scope

it pays to behave oneself wisely

on lonely corners of any metropolis

where possibilities of the con may exist

it pays to behave oneself wisely

in enclaves of good old boys

where they play with burning crosses

it pays to behave oneself wisely

in all realms, dwellings and journeys where poison asps hatch

where ravenous wolves roam
