"The Lost"

The lost-


Like some forgotten song!

The dreams that have vanished into the mist:

The dreams very simply-

That no longer seem to exist:

With only the memories of our days-

Of being so carefree:

And I was in love with you-

And you-

You were in love with me.

"They Say The Ladies"

They say the ladies-

In their beauty-

Measured by magnitude-

Their effect upon you-

A criterion of merit-

Also accumulated in their attitude...

As well as if they're outgoing or shy?

Their psychology-

Their sense of reality-

And of fantasy-

And if they had wings-

Could they fly?

"An Impetus Toward"

An impetus toward-

What doesn't leave you bored:

If not notable as literature-

At least some degree of lyric quality...

Which these days,
Considering what passes for poetry-

Is good enough I'm sure:

And if juvenile-

Just let that be the style:

Who knows,
But that maybe
It'll take you in
After a while?

"Uncertainty, (Inflation, And High Prices)"

Uncertainty, inflation, and high prices-
And you search diligently,
But you're not sure whether
You should plan that far ahead...

For where are the traditional strongholds of reality?

These days,
Almost impossible to find.

Dirty politicians
Who promise fairyland
And fantasy:

These puppets on strings-

With their supporters
Like sheep,
That on cue
Lift their heads
And begin to sing...

Therefore embrace the obvious-

That the vast majority
Have been bought and sold,
And are a total waste of time.
