Looking for justice
And aiding the soul,
Feeling the pressure that takes on control.
Working  non-stop
And wish for the break,
The life is so heavy
Let's put it a brake!

A Dogs Plea
Treat me kindly,
my beloved friend,
for no heart in all the world
is more grateful for kindness than the loving heart of me.

Do not break my spirit with a stick,
for though I might lick your hand between blows,
your patience and understanding
will more quickly teach me
the things you would have me learn.

Speak to me often,
for your voice is the world's sweetest music,
as you must know
by the fierce wagging of my tail
when the sound of your footstep falls upon my waiting ears.

Please take me inside when it is cold and wet,
for I am a domesticated animal,
no longer accustomed to bitter elements.
I ask no greater glory than the privilege
of sitting at your feet beside the hearth.

Keep my pan filled with fresh water,
for I cannot tell you when I suffer thirst.

Feed me clean food
that I might stay well,
to romp and play
and do your bidding,
to walk by your side and stand ready ,
willing and able to protect you with my life,
should your life be in danger.

And, my friend,
when I am very old,
and I no longer enjoy good health,
hearing and sight,
do not make heroic efforts to keep me going.
I am not having fun.

Please see that my trusting life is taken gently.
I shall leave this Earth knowing with the last breath I draw
that my fate was always safest in your hands.

by Beth Norman Harris

One of the all time greats and still living

Oh, I wish I'd looked after me teeth...
by Pam Ayres MBE.

Oh, I wish I'd looked after me teeth,
And spotted the perils beneath,
All the toffees I chewed,
And the sweet sticky food,
Oh, I wish I'd looked after me teeth.

I wish I'd been that much more willin'
When I had more tooth there than fillin'
To pass up gobstoppers,
From respect to me choppers
And to buy something else with me shillin'.

When I think of the lollies I licked,
And the liquorice allsorts I picked,
Sherbet dabs, big and little,
All that hard peanut brittle,
My conscience gets horribly pricked.

My Mother, she told me no end,
"If you got a tooth, you got a friend"
I was young then, and careless,
My toothbrush was hairless,
I never had much time to spend.

Oh I showed them the toothpaste all right,
I flashed it about late at night,
But up-and-down brushin'
And pokin' and fussin'
Didn't seem worth the time... I could bite!

If I'd known I was paving the way,
To cavities, caps and decay,
The murder of fiIlin's
Injections and drillin's
I'd have thrown all me sherbet away.

So I lay in the old dentist's chair,
And I gaze up his nose in despair,
And his drill it do whine,
In these molars of mine,
"Two amalgum," he'll say, "for in there."

How I laughed at my Mother's false teeth,
As they foamed in the waters beneath,
But now comes the reckonin'
It's me they are beckonin'
Oh, I wish I'd looked after me teeth.

Theism and Man

Words which don't sound fair,
thoughts, which make you stare
At the unfair world questioning cosmic beauty,
In parallel to God and Man's duty-
As life itself revolves, and death itself dissolves,
All into one; slowly, gracefully.

The whispers of soliloquy, the obnoxious vibes,
Which force you to buy the lies of 'being alive'
The unprecedented Fate, her escalated hate,
Makes one wonder when Death will arrive.

All for One, and One for all,
Till the day, when Man meets Fall,
One may stall his fated Destiny,
"Man's vivacious yet futile mutiny."

Pessimism is bliss, the only truth there is,
'Coz when the waves touch the shores, and the rays do kiss
the golden sands of Time Eternal,
Reminds Humanity of its existence carnal.
The voracious gluttony of success  succumb
To the Death, the Pain and all things Numb.

She Dances in a Ring of Fire

All the poems have wolves in them,
all but one -- the most beautiful one of all.
She dances in a ring of fire
and throws off the challenge with a shrug.
"Who did you right that one for?"
"I wrote it for you."

All the poems have wolves in them,
all but one -- the most beautiful one of all.
I hope you go out smiling
like a child into the cool remnant of a dream,
the angel man finally claimed his benevolent soul.
Ophelia, leaves sudden and silk
chlorine dream -- mad stifled witness.
"This is the strangest life I have ever known."

--- James Douglas Morrison ---

Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house everyone felt shitty even the mouse.
Mom at the whorehouse and dad smoking grass, I settled down for a nice piece of ass.
When all of a sudden I heard such a clatter, I sprung from my place to see what was the matter.
When out on the lawn I saw a big dick, I new in a moment it must be Saint Nick.
He came down the chimney like a bat out of hell, I knew in a moment the f*cker had fell.
He filled all of our stockings with pretzels and beer and a big rubber dick for my brother the queer.
He rose up the chimney with a thunderous fart, the son of a b*tch tore the chimney apart.
He swore and he cursed as he flew out of sight, "piss on you all and have a hell of a night." :)

A vague shadow

A vague shadow,
Of my former self,
I shroud my face from all beating souls,
Turned away from society for outrageous ideals,
Now I lack heartbeat,
And soul.
