I'll never be number one
and I'll never want to be
for with the privilege comes dedication and responsibly.

I'll never be number two or three
for Guppy brain washes all
and Sammer won't rest till she's reached her goal.

I'm happy at number four or five, or even six or seven,
I don't really care if I'm not here at all as long as my poems aren't forgotten.

I may not be the best reviewer
but I try my best to be truthful and kind
I always speak as I find.

To me it's not a battle
and my followers are few
but those of you who follow me I give my thanks to you x

A woman of mystery
full of grace
hides behind a veil of lace.

She hid behind a veil
No one could see her smile
she spoke with hypnotic eyes

How the caterpillar envied the butterfly
her grace her beauty, her ability to fly.
He sluggishly crawled from leaf to leaf

The king and the queen of hearts
ruled the land with compassion and mercy
no one went hungry, no one went thirsty,

She lived in the mountains wild and free
with her closest friends and family
she ate from the land, she reared her young,
life was bliss until man came along.

They came with spears, they hunted with guns,
ignoring the plight of the little ones
tears ran like rivers from youngsters eyes
as they lay there at their mother's side.

Milk dried, they slowly died.

Heads and hands
exchanged for money
as tourists barter
for souvenirs of slaughter.

Gorillas in the mist
dismembered to add to sadistic collections
existence threatened
extinction sadly imminent.

Needlessly slain for monetary gain.

Our very first kiss
such passion, such bliss, such love,
two hearts beat as one.

Two souls united
dormant coals ignite desire
my heart merged with yours.

Passionate frenzy
I completely surrendered
to arms so tender.

Imprints in the sand
washed away by gentle waves
memories remain.

The rose of love bloomed
delicate petals opened
perfume filled the air.
