• and a lie was born
    and a little later was sworn
    into an office where he’d
    embark on a term or four
    promising to look after those whose votes
    had so kindly placed him
    but, in reality
    it was all to feed
    that massive ego
    engorged on the promises of tomorrow

    Monkeys in a barrel, 50 to the dozen

    The actual thought behind this
    the actual process described within
    the actual feelings associated with those
    are nothing compared
    ti the actuality of you.

  • beckenbocker commented on the post, methods 4 years, 5 months ago

    there are methods that are shear madness. melting away flesh to get to bones. working 40 hours a week just to be able to pay for the gas that drives you back to work for next weeks’ 40 hours. these are methods of madness that will drive any and everyone mad.

  • beckenbocker commented on the post, July 4 years, 5 months ago

    July’s memories seem toasty and warm
    compared to the weather of today’s memories

    as the year chases its tail to the beginning
    I count the days until
    July’s memories can be made
    anew

  • beckenbocker commented on the post, under 4 years, 6 months ago

    under and over and out
    in the wild
    where there’s not a soul to shove
    a minute more of craziness
    down under your throat
    unless, of course
    that;s your cup of tea

    as soon as things come together in
    a particular way

    will any of this happen
    but I’m sure that it will happen
    soon

    I went to the library to learn
    but all I accomplished was falling in love
    with the smell, touch, words
    kept on display
    from millions of ,minds through
    thousands of years

    with each of us
    multiplied by ourselves
    and added together
    with a dash of each other
    makes a perfect
    four cornered
    life.

  • beckenbocker commented on the post, arts 4 years, 6 months ago

    every November of every year
    i find myself drawn to the arts
    all i want to do is loose myself in a classic book
    stare gape mouthed at a cubists love
    listen to Brahms and cry

    and then i turn a year older
    and it rips me that much further
    away from my artistic center

  • beckenbocker commented on the post, roar 4 years, 6 months ago

    roaring good time was had by all
    who happened to peek their heads out
    of their own stuffy houses.

    If there was any hope that a better
    time could have been had
    then it would have been made
    to happen for all
    those roaring people.

    will age with time and wisdom
    after a few more years of
    teaching

    using the best ones first. You use the worst last, and try not to even then.

  • my interest in all things are weaning
    life used to be full of sunshine and lollipops
    now i have to slave for 8 hours a day
    so that my children will be able to one day sit here
    and complain about having a lessening interest in
    sunshine and lollipops.
