On Alternate Realities

There are alternate realities despite what some may say

There’s more mystery than just the passing of each day

seers, wizards, prophets, fortune-tellers, are visionaries

who explore hidden realms with their own itineraries

using portals as entries

portals can be found in mirrors

forests and mountains

their everywhere

secrets to dimensions to nowhere

or in your nightmares

and your fantastical dreams

nothing is as it seems

The Party Never Stopped

There’s no need to remind me

of purple haze back in the days

when everyone was free

I still see

visions

and life’s still a mystery

a sense of discovery still stalks

my every day

I exhale memories

and put them on display

for curious passer-byers

who never know what to say

psychedelic tales of old

when young people

were curious and bold

dancing through the nights

under brilliant revolving lights

chasing white rabbits down holes

so deep

there was no sleep

only endless partying

and dancing

to the Mad Hatters tune

live now

because you’ll die soon

‘Tis The Season …

Tis the season

of no reason

logic has fled

into the wintery night

on a sled

of lies

that incite

passions unchecked

with a bad effect

upon us all

save us from stupidity

holding so many in thrall

Now we need

a new season

with reason

where truth is told

and knowledge

is treated like gold

Revisionist History

Looking back over the rivers of time

History is malleable

and easy to redefine

regimes do it all the time

but in the end

the truth remains the same

writing about the past

has always been a game

where conquerors are good

and losers take the blame

And the Seals Clapped On

Seals can be trained to clap for treats

humans can be brainwashed to clap

for political candidates

Seals dive into the sea for sustenance

humans swim in the chaos

they call civilization

while seals search for their next fish

humans thrash about like bait

caught in some stupid political debate

victims of their own hate

STONE GARDEN

statues silently standing on hallowed ground

telling their stories day and night

granite and marble guardians without sight

A garden full of ghosts standing vigil

alongside testaments of their lives

invisible keepers of their own archives

There’s nothing living in this garden

no souls lingering nearby

just grave stones under the sky
