Three Daze

Oh you can’t be nice forever. Ain’t enough slack to cut. That smile kinda hurts on the second day When everyone’s had enough. But you, you tough it out. Close your nearly full ears. Maybe you say you’re laughing To explain those burning tears. As shit piles up. Six feet high. You wonder if you […]

The Rogue Tiger

There are people in this world Who are nicer than nice. With mouths not full of shit And hearts not filled with ice. They speak words of kindness Safety and concern. They live by their golden rule To never gouge or burn Their customers, whom love them back And promise to return. Barry

When A Mind Is Wound Up Life Has Many Twists And Turns

Your reality isn’t real. That’s not the way to feel. Sprinkled with confusion. Speaking from delusion. Making real fear. Starting deep in here. You know something’s screwed. You are now behooved. To investigate. Navigate. Don’t you wait. Getting late and You don’t got no sense on. Barry

They Called Him Cock And Asian But He Felt Contagion

  They say you’re sixty and white. You know that sixty ain’t right. But you ain’t no fighter, More like delighter And a star shining bright through the night. They say you’re short and you’re fat. They seem to get off doing that. You think that that isn’t rat. So you identify them as spoiled […]

He Had A Problem With Authority And Authority Had A Problem With Him

  He did better on his lonesome. Crowds, he found them loathsome. Hankered to be alone some. Pointers, he needed not. Stealthy, to not get caught. Opinions unsold or bought. A pathway clearly fraught With peril. Barry  

They Were Children And Kids Who Got Bigger

Oh, Grow Up! Mother would shout. You don’t know what you’re talking about! You, smirking like that…! You should get a smack…! Just try and talk back…! You won’t sit down for a week! You and your silly damn cheek! Maybe you’ll live in the street! But until you do… You better, you… Watch it! […]
