Night Rider

Turn an eye to the
lonely sky
with billowing clouds
pregnant with rain
hiding a waning moon
winds are screaming to the night
ti's an omen
so they say

Heed where ye travel
beware what ye do
above all whisper
the words ye shall say

For he rides
in the dark
searching for men to slay
would it be the ones gone wrong
with debauchery and lie
of the evil
that men do

Keep a razor sharp eye
take care lest you stray
into a cold and darkened night
he is waiting to take your soul
and there is no giving back

Sydney Xmas Limerick

At Christmas in Sydney it's hot
(wintry and snowy it's not)
So on the nude beach
Remember to reach
And smother some cream on your bot.

Neopoet Random Challenge #7...

No! I've missed the last fuel stop!
Eager to make time, I blew it
Oh, I hope that I have enough to make it
Perhaps I will, if I drive steady
Okay, just take it slow
Easy does it, ignore
Those butterflies in my stomach
Dot the I's
Call on your inner reserves
Omit any doubts and
Make sure the desert doesn't get you

No Juice or Jam (Running on Empty Challenge)

I am hungry but my
Meal hides in the moment.

Fear siphons power to play
War games without consent.

I am bunkered in the crippling confines
of a broken nervous system.

Why can't I lift Thor's hammer
To forge an escape?

Worthiness requires capacity
In this callous world.

God I'm so tired!
Freeze to survive is what I do.

A breath tips me forward,
Please don't trip.
This fucking treadmill !

I am starving but my
Salvation hides in the moment.

A hopeless heart

I stare
at that sky
bright and clear .
trying to hold
back my tears.
While my mind
flees
into the futures
Flames of fear .
Where
deep down
there lies
a hopeless heart
bashed to broken.
Desperately trying
to put its pieces
of perfection
back into place .

Autumn Has Come

Autumn plans reversed out of reach
away from the heat of sandy beach
my desire travels to a cold and hard city
snow in great Canada, oh what a pity!

Imagine cuddling is fun so cosy
blushing beneath covers feeling rosy
wishing a third would pop up soon
with a face like a silvery blue moon

perhaps we could park in Banana city
we'd be alone mindless of nitty gritty
recalling kids desired another sibling
a lovely one, wow you are now dribbling

The Celestial Threat

On that solid selfish night
dark threatened to shut down
and bang out

the flamboyant moon resists
tear gassing florescent light
warning the shooting stars to depart

and the flickering star halts
giraffin in a subtle manner
but only the clustered cloud burgles his way to victory

and the night dies smoothly

Gods greasy spoon.

I wonder if there are canteens in Heaven?
with cottage cheese thats quite appealing
hob nob biscuits and darjeeling -- yeah;

Wonder if there are canteens-
in heaven?

Perhaps seraphim that are lithe and thin
whip up yoghurt for the newly in! --yeah;

I wonder if there are canteens-
in heaven ?

Maybe beans on toast or a sunday roast
is served by God the holy ghost
and his only son is the one-

who pours the gravy !!

yeah;

I wonder if there are canteens -
in Heaven?

Obi..

PLEA OF AN IDIOT LOVEDLY

You all will not know
who does or does not
remain remembered
but be happy
we regard you all
for your sojourn
on the Earth
stay in the living hearts

See they give a Nobel to those living only
of what use is it to the incinerated
dead or buried
tell me gracefully
an idiot I alone
be

Fearless

Owl.
Talons dig deep.
To where the truth resides
No hiding; no kid gloves — only
Salvation.

For he rides

SHE'S AN ANIMAL (Random challenge Seven)

A gold-digger in cyber space
She flies out like duty ravens

Her sexual intimacy is her VAT
Lust is her custom

In all nooks and crannies
She stages in her selfie:

Pay before service
That’s her mantra

A ruthless lustful will
Banging here and there

A predator in her comfort zone
Caressing and juicing up

With kissing deal
Uninterrupted

She has monetized her body
VIPs on her payroll

Please stay offside of this woman
She’s the Bermuda triangle
