Alternative Facts


We live in a time,
Filled with opinion not fact,
Filled with fantasy not news,
Where WordPress depresses,
And claims to be views.
***
We are closer to war,
Believing alternative facts,
Believing alternative news,
The rumour mill,
And the next daily sleuth.
***
Where are we going,
When alternative news becomes fact,
When alternative fact becomes news,
Are we lining our destruction,
Pulling the pin, lightning the fuse.
***
Is it not our right,
To believe alternative facts,
To believe alternative news,
Spreading our world,
Sharing our views.
***
Rights have responsibility,
Like teaching real facts,
Like dispelling fake news,
So be responsible and teach,
But not just your views.

We Once Said I Love You


You once said I love you without force,
Without pain, without remorse,
What we had was special,
But the bitterness came,
First it was just arguing,
Behind locked doors, then in public.
***
I once said I love you without wincing,
Without a sigh, without rolling my eyes,
What we had felt right,
But the cruelty came,
And we drifted apart,
Lived separately, Then moved apart.
***
We once said I love you without spite,
Without sarcasm, Without venum,
What we had worked,
But what finally came,
And finally ended it,
Was sharp words, and harsher jibes.

All The Seasons


Yellow rainbow upon the soil,
on that bright spring day.

Purple hugh upon the hills,
on that worm summers day.

Brown squishy mess upon the roads,
on that dull autumn day.

Whirlwind whitewash upon the ground,
on that cold Christmas day.

Time, Just Stand Still


I am the youngest I will ever be,
Yet the oldest I have ever seemed,
Stop the clock now,
And let time stand still.

For he is the reason,
Life is never dull,
But sometimes I need,
The clock to stop,
And time to leave me be.

But he marches on,
Tick by tock
And tock by tick,
Endlessly marching to the metronome.

So cherish the time,
Because tomorrow as with now,
You will be the youngest you ever were,
But the oldest you have ever been.

A Summers Day


Roses and sunshine,
Smile out in the garden,
Tea and coffee,
Play out on the table,
Kids fish by the stream,
Adults talk about the day.
***
Summer has come ,
It shows in the garden,
Drinks are available,
Sat out on the table,
Fish hide in the stream,
This never ending summers day.
***
Night seems distant,
Miles from the garden,
The hot patio,
Sleeps under the table,
Cold is the water in the stream,
Warm is the wind of the day.

I’m Lovin’ You


We both sit here,
You know I feel it too,
I see it in your eyes,
Words aren’t needed,
When looks will do,
Love is not just said,
It’s something shown,
And between us it’s known.
