Americas Child


I’m Americas child

step into my skin

feel the burning hunger

buried deep within

see me as a gift

the future, that it is me

but I can’t chase my dreams

when I’m scared & so hungry


ma says relief is coming

pa, he says it too

leaders keep on fighting

I’m sure their plates are full…O’Prunty

It’s Monday in America


It’s Monday in America:

a new day dawing

an evil era waning

as we unite

– both, left and right:

agree to disagree

most respectfully

and bridge the divide

with determined stride

though battle scared

as esteemed leaders spared

together, we’ll seam

the American dream…O’Prunty 11/92020

Sunday Morning Sunrise


The Sunday morning sunrise

Ascending Americas skies

Seems to revive dreams

Dreams, that nearly died…

And though the fights not over

And though the road is long

This Sunday morning sunrise

Reminds us to stay strong…O’Prunty 11/8/2020

In Honor of President Elect Joe Biden and VP Kamala Harris

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

it costs nothing

to be nice-

a confirmed universal freedom

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
