Hot sun beating down
Sweat pours working side by side
Good to be around

Going to the Olympics
Double amputee

Could Do

Contemplating life…

   Could Do

Not really a gaffe
Worried about our babies
We forget to laugh

But still sometimes all
Could do with a laugh it’s free
And might lift the pall

For Ethics

Contemplating the light…

   For Ethics

Not the point what’s right?
Is there no room for ethics?
Without it no light

Clear sight worth the fight
There must be room for ethics
Or live without light

   -gl-

Just thinking…

Rushing filled with fright
A little boy draws searchers
Missing overnight

A salute to all those that turned out…

Into Knots

Contemplating misery…

   Into Knots

Sweating he shivers
Belly twisted into knots
Oh those ghost peppers

Does this kind of foolishness sound familiar…?

Please share…

Despite Raw

Contemplating happiness…

   Despite Raw

Such welcoming sounds
Despite raw cacophony
The pack gathers round
