Question?

The Question At Sunrise After Sleep
By GC

I don’t sleep the sleep of a child
mine are not the dreams of innocence
I carry the weight of seven plus decades
and what I have done with that long time

I don’t sleep the sleep of a child
mine are not the dreams of innocence
I carry the weight of seven plus decades
and what I have not done in that long time

I don’t sleep the sleep of a child
mine are not the dreams of innocence
still I sleep pretty well for a wordly old guy
‘cause my deeds, my avoids have been mostly benign

I’m sure I won’t go to heaven
I’m sure I won’t go to hell
I don’t give credence to angels or devils
they’re myths, nothing more-nothing less

So you ask, why do I wake up early?
the answer to that question is easy to tell
it’s a mysterious world come each sunrise
and I think that living with mystery fits me well

Plight of the Naugas

Hammer Mammer
By GC

Copious copulation within 
the herds of supple Naugahyde
is required to satisfy the never ending 
demand from Automobile Upholsterers Of America
that ancient guild of pompadoured plastic artisans 

Jetted extractions of Montsanto’s
watercress, sauerbraten, and gazpacho
mixed with bluebird plucked feathers for bulk 
fill the stantioned herd’s cowlike twin stomachs 
despite the hew and cry of the angry anti-GMO crowd

Despite the reproductive prowess 
of the once thundering herds of Naugyhidys
we find the messy abattoir sufficiently repulsive
to give second thought to the hammering of their heads
and that causes within the slaughterhouse workers a manner of mammerism

Do you?

Ever read poetry. If so, why so? If not, why not?

Candy and stuff

A Modest Sweet Tooth
By GC

Milk chocolate is good,
It’s even better with almonds
but, it’ll never compare
to pit roasted pulled pig

Strawberry twizzlers are nice
I like them fresh and chewy
but, those sugar confections
can’t compete with spiced up fried fish

I’ve had painted candies
but marzipan won’t do it
when instead I can get
roast chicken with herbs

Take spices and green leaves
mix them in soups and sauces
lard them with meats and veggies
and keep your candies and cakes.
