The Journey to the West

Though we journey to the West We pray to the East More or less that's the way Each day begins and ends It’s a tale everyone ...

A Mockingbird's Cause for Lament Late Friday Night

One more reason
To feel forlorn
These days is that
We lack recourse
To blame or beseech
Anyone but ourselves
For our failings

In days gone by there was
A vengeful God to rail against
For the plagues visited upon
The Nations of Israel and Islam
All equally attributable
To a higher power

But now we are forsaken
As we hurtle towards a doom
All of our own making
Devoid of even the
Flimsy power of prayer
To halt its advance

Ask not for whom the mockingbird tweets
He tweets for us all night long
Tirelessly with his song
