oh little lamb take care and remain most wary

the wise wordsmith will invest in shoulder blade plates
as the hypocrites always lasso the pendulum,
their object of worship a truly jealous god
who mercilessly grinds in the ground otherwise

wonderful words – as all words are in their own ways
wonderful – words like Inclusion and Brotherhood
and if in the search for identity, Ego
is served so much as a coffee and an apple

pie piece, well we cannot have that because, you see,
we are all in this together so do not dare
go off on your own to build a free verse poem
else ye be mocked as one of those red state devils

About Timmy the Scribbler

Love to write all kinds of stuff I love writing so many different kinds of stuff it is a constant struggle to narrow the focus to a manageable handful and let the others go. But a few years ago I dipped my fingers into a poetry pie and of all my uncertainties, one thing that is no uncertainty is that it is one passion that must remain, so maybe that's the one. I do dearly delight in chopping up fictional works into stanzas and syllables.
