The online archives

will serve as lessons in logic

for our future Plato’s in training.


upon fallacy,

legitimizing evil,

demonizing the good,

the innocent.

Easier to do that

than change.

Human spirits trampled

by intentions always unkind.

Easier to torch the land

than it is to water new seeds.

The Greats plant seeds

of the trees they never see.

Where are the greats now?

Where is our vanguard?

Our democracy?

Can social models not thrive?

Is there dignity in the internet

industry of influencers?


upon fallacy,

and lies about the innocent

whose soul and innocence

burned to ashes

by the gaslight.

Simple Advice

Simple advice

lost in a dragged out

rag of an expression,

simple advice,

or is it insight and reference

or religious cult practice?

Words are such a skewed method

of carrying our messages.

No fault is attended to the meter,

Life is not a bitch,

simple advice.

Economy doesn’t count for my decisions,

now wait for the chorus and the drop.

Simple advice,

free attention

now returns that sense of rhythmless


I will distract myself as my fortune.

But my distraction will be productive,

another drop and rise in the rhythm,

the chorus returns,

and the art I make is worth it.

Relapse Dance

It’s not an addiction,

if it’s fun.

Dance, dance away.

It’s not an addiction.

It’s a community, and that’s not stupid.

It’s just how things are done now.


Do a little jig,

it’s a relapse dance.

A relapse dance?

A relapse dance.


Self-flagellation, cucking,


x rated, castrated.

Good clean family fun.


Do little jig,

it’s a relapse dance.

A relapse dance?

A relapse dance.


This would be the part where I’d skat

if I had a band and more talent.

Skip bop bitty bop

dippity daba dobby datta yeah.


Do a little jig,

it’s a relapse dance.

A relapse dance?

A relapse dance.


Killing old pain

with fresh bottles.

Skip bop bitty bop,

Can’t beat em? Kill em.

Skip bop bitty bop,

dippity daba dobby datta yeah.

It’s the relapse dance.

The relapse dance?

The relapse dance.

I can post whatever I want. So, let me put what has been on my mind out into the ether, so I can get back to my Lebowski state of mind.

No Clear Way to Describe It

No Clear Way To Describe It

To bare feelings genuine

free of mystery

removes all art and life.

Is this so?


yet perhaps not,

perhaps mystery is an illusion

produced by illusion itself.


perhaps these feelings are self provoked.

Unfortunate, there are no clearer words,

no more explanatory ways,

only the mystery of my stories

and each thought is explained,

in the mystery itself.

The answers can come from

any convoluted plan,

any selfish push.

Forgive us this day

our daily bread.

My life is full of progress

and I still have more to do.

I was a terrible buddhist.

And a sinful christian,

a lazy taoist,

and a confused atheist.

This is not my life story,

but it is true.

These things were

and still are true,

though shrouded in the tedium of mystery,

it is still true

it is still there

it is still real.

In my not-so-humble opinion, it is easier to quit smoking cigarettes than it is to quit Twitter.

Reminder: You should give me your money

Forgive the clickbait title, but like a good poet finding his way in the world, I have to beg for change.

So once again I’d like to encourage my followers to join me on Patreon for my new prose blog The Weekly Protest, which features a new post every Friday.

It only costs a buck and the funds help me to keep this site running without paywalls. The prose is for profit, but poetry is for the people.

And in all fairness, writing is my livelihood, and writers don’t write for free. Just saying, it’s good karma to donate to your favorite artists especially in this economy. Again, just saying.

So join today, gain access to the prose posts, and support your friendly neighborhood bard and his cigar habit. 😉

Just A Joke

Soyboy cuck gay lame loser dumbass!

Don’t be so sensitive,

it’s just a joke.

Rage and racism exhaled through Taki crumbs and dust, ironically the guy thinks all Mexicans should be impounded.

Don’t be so sensitive,

it’s just a joke.

Hatred shat out the mouth of a fat white albatross with a Twitch following, trying to outdo the fatter albatross with an even bigger following, who is trying to outdo the blond albatross who’s dad got her a job on Fox News. All of them calling the libs “the real racists” in perfect harmony, like a K K Choir.

Don’t be so sensitive,

it’s just a joke.

A gamer, famous for some reason, gave discount cheat codes to his followers for free Nazi paraphernalia and klan hoods, while the blonde woman I mentioned earlier reports his tweets for revealing her old nose to the world.

Don’t be so sensitive,

it’s just a joke.

Now for a Tik Tok about PC culture by the virgin with too many zits to be sacrificed to the gods and destined to be dueted by the 40-year-old man who agrees with it.

Don’t be so sensitve,

it’s a just a joke.

An honest question

Where is the methadone clinic for the people who take drugs with their eyes and thumbs? Why does asking for the wifi password feel like finding a vein?
