On Truth


when truth is lacking justice fails

regardless the atempt of various veils

honor, integrity play no part

within the stained, tainted heart


so carefully speak -let truth prevail

uncover the lies -rent the veil…O’Prunty 9/18/2020

Perils of Pretense


I grew tired of the mundane

The everyday insane:

As they stand

Upon podiums of pretense

Pontificating falsehoods

Lining lying lips…O’Prunty

This…


He wrote a poem about a snake

I’ll write one about a rake

Who robbed America blind…

Caused devastation to humankind

And I’ll title it accordingly:

The Snake of Immorality.

Hand in Hand


we walked as if unaware

through youthful days

without a care

singing songs of sunshine

and daisy days

of are you mine?

hip-high in wheat-top sways

we walked through our youthful days

to be nice-

Excuses


a plethora of words

taken out of context

nouns, pronouns

verbs, adverbs

in similitude of mass conjecture

falling on deaf ears…O’Prunty 7/292020

Just A Song…


98 days of trump and his wall

98 days of trump

take one down

like his wall hit the ground

97 days of trump and his wall…O’Prunty 7/27/2020

Upon This July,4-2020


On this #4thofJuly2020 I remember the sacrifices of our ancestors who gave their all. Men from all ethnic backgrounds stood up against tyranny – They were Americans, equal in the fight for #Freedom And now, we must become equal in the fight against #Dictatorship #SaveOurDemocracy

Oh, Child


Dear child do not ask me why(?)

this, I can not explain

why hate haunts every corner

and a president fuels the flame

but this, this I do know

the hate must clearly go:

Hug me before nightfalls…O’Prunty 6/2020

What She Loved…


~ What She Loved

Was the purity in the lily

Graceful petals

Reaching heaven bound

As porcelain arms in praise

And the twisting winding roses

Traveling the trellis

Scaling the distanceBetween root

and also heaven bound

Permeating her world,

Her waters seeping sensual oils

Then the wildness of the tiger lily

Growing wild and free

Surviving without tending

The tender touch

of the gardeners hands

Not required,

still exotic the pulsating petals

And the bleeding hearts

Delicate, dainty

drops of colors fused

And the reality represented in the name

;All hearts bleed,

broken by love lacking

Neglected,

fragile petals drop as tears falling

What she loved was beauty

Beauty, in all forms, fashions

And on bended knee

She, the gardener

Singing her songs of praise

In her own garden of delights.

O’Prunty ©6/28/15***Mother loved symbolism.
