~ Allegory 


~ Allegory 
Ascending as the vultures, high…

(Upon the remains of wealth)
Swarming as the bee

Lacking comb, and home
Grunting, (as piglets do)

Wallowing in murk and mire
No grunt, no sting, no wing

Ever meant a ‘thing’…

Weather beaten vane

Whipping winds and metal clash

Clink-clank, clink-clank, clink

Uprooted Oak tree

Broken branches lie, decay

Roots lost to the winds

~ Greed


~ Greed
When Greed the heart does consume

Logic finds no room

Distorted – nay, falsehoods – proclaimed 

From forked tongues without restrain

All Dignity cast aside

Void of substance, alter pride

And family, friends stand in awe

Observing the circus one and all
When Greed the heart does consume

Logic finds no room.

~ Pagan in Nature
The wheat
The barley
The rye
Nuts, berries, Nature does supply
A gift to each hearth and home:
Honey sweet drips from the comb.

In Response to Beyonce’s ‘Formation’


In Response to Beyonce’s ‘Formation’
~ Silent Refrain – Lyrics
I’ve got a voice

Let me sing you a song

I’ve got a dream

Let me take you along

Show you how

It all went wrong

Have a seat

This may be strong
Momma taught me 

To RESPECT all races

Never degrade

Laugh in their faces

Never think yourself higher

Humility; a trait to admire

My Momma Irish

My Daddy too

Ancestors enslaved

By a king who thought 

The world to rule

Don’t hold no grudge

For all they went through

Just made me stronger

How bout you

You…you…you?
So let us get this right

Let us set this straight

Promote love and peace

Abolish, need for hate

So open up to love

So open up to love

Catch your honey

As we know the bee does
My Momma taught me

Life has its stages

When on one

Take care of your phrases

Creativity is such a rare gift

Dark side of moon

Dangerous place to let it drift

Let it drift

Drift…drift… drift
So let us get this right

Let us set this straight

Promote love and peace

Abolish, need for hate

So open up to love

So open up to love

Catch your honey

As we know the bee does
Weave your words 

Where Wisdom reigns

Reject the haters

In a silent refrain…
In a silent refrain…
Silent refrain…
Refrain…refrain…refrain…

~ ‘Neath the Daunting Drifts


~ Jonas Must Concede
Angry was the night

Defiant leaf on bare branch cling

As howling winds force chimes, sing
Swirl of blinding snow

Bites about ears and nose

Settles, soakes, freezes blue of tiny toes
Beded down night creature’s

Braving winter’s wrath

And our homeless, caught within its path,
Void of mercy

Nature in her rawess form

Respects none, pleading, for warmth,
And wild whips the willows

Bent the laden pine

Piled high in drifts surreal, sublime,
As if in a snow globe standing

Caught in the sift the shake

Seeking a hopeless escape,
And so, all must accept

Wild winds, swirling snow

Blinded by piling drifts aglow
The digging out massive

The weight weighing all down

When Winter bares a frown
Beneath the frozen

The terra firma root

Optimistic minds dream of Spings first shoot
And the color of the crocus

Waiting, ready to please

Upon the sigh of Springs soft breeze.
