Knave bluffs

leers retrograde rebukes

cuts hand dealt

draws black aces

Guilt’s trump card

Since he already lost

goes all in

Jokers wild

First Born


blue ribbon shrine

pristine shoes

Daddy toe waltzes

bedroom sanctum

car keys

genetic guilt

default executor

Last shovelful of dirt

Road Not Taken

Sadly, UR taut noose unravels

Death nigh & memories naught

Girded in uncertainty

U shunned exotic paths,

the only journey to happiness

Nursing Rhymes

Poetweeters Note:  I changed the title of the poem from “Nursery Rhymes” to “Nursing Rhymes.” 

Humpty tumbles

Boughs break

Cradles fall

Jack rolls down

& cracks his crown

All the king’s men useless

Bedtime fables end
