    leave athletes alone

    alcohol destroys brain cells

    test politicians





    they woo and won ‘em

    unholy heathen wretches

    then shoo and gun ‘em





    black flag is red for

    black blood green for black sod

    and for black souls black





    me without you

    is like muhammad ali

    without ado





    at public lynchin’

    they cursed him his color

    just ’cuz they had none





    i know old adults

    young enough

    to be my children





    many people

    are wise enough to own a dog

    but not a cat





    two empty arms

    looking for one

    that’s loaded





    she nods in the right

    places while remaining

    silent as a pin





    brothers at the end

    of their rope feet still dancing

    swinging neck and neck





    lies followed by lies

    then obscene centerfold

    followed by more lies





    smaller grows the wings

    of a summer-long fling

    first appeared in spring





    holy opposites

    pious and god-fearing souls

    beget global war





    obstinate mule team

    by lady teamster driven

    stubborn ***** all





    it’s about what you

    see not feel what you

    know not think





    sometimes the short

    end of the stick is all

    that’s available





    last time i had

    a free home trial i paid

    attorney fees





    vessels of an hour

    haul away the minutes

    in nano-seconds





    you still my brother

    but you should have stood

    and been a man
