Poetry

Jack of All Moods

A broken rollercoaster

at the Freak Show Carnival

*** ***

Sing a song of tu’pence,

here’s six-pence change

*** ***

Don your Pennywise mask

and crash into my Dodgem

*** ***

Hall of mirrors warps my soul,

my perception screams for more

*** ***

Bearded lady reads my un-fortune

of happiness and health.

Poetry

Skewiff

Cock your head,

view it sideways

Now it makes sense

*** ***

Right?

*** ***

If the world is round

and ever moving

Straight is never an option

*** ***

Mother Nature

not Terry Pratchett;

It’s called Earth, not Discworld

*** ***

These linear paths deceive

as they curve,

but you act so surprised

while you curl up to cry

at the injustice and heartbreak

*** ***

.

*** ***

This is not what you asked for

It’s not what you dreamed

Hellish flames scald your essence

and devour your soul

For the path had a turn

despite what you yearn

Life is out of control

it’s turbulent. Defunct
