zealous wives


Beheading an adulteress wife in Saudi Arabia

zealous wives

His zealous wives were suddenly possessed.
Zealous women were guillotined, as demons.
Wives were beheaded then, if caught!
Were guillotined! Then, many punished mercilessly,
suddenly, as if punished relentlessly by
possessed demons, caught mercilessly by Allah.

A 6 x 6 square poem, which is identical either up and down.

His              zealous       wives             were              suddenly       possessed
zealous     women        were              guillotined   as                     demons
wives         were             beheaded    then                if                       caught
were           guillotined then              many              punished       mercilessly
suddenly  as                   if                     punished      relentlessly  by
possessed demons      caught          mercilessly  by                    Allah

Done For…


touch-of-evil

Done For…

engaging gang-bang battle.
dis-organized crime – wave of fist.
wasted – without end.
fried, fragged, flatlined.

cum-back, fight s’more

suicide addiction.
beer bottle abrasion.
brass-knuckle battle.
bruises, bites –
tribulations.

take it like ur happi

one day its fisticuffs;
next time, pistol to head.
smeared, spoiled, snuffed.
tie that toe tag tight.

see ya in the boneyard

Princess Vadar

pale purple and pink
trendy took her fancy
thus, she chose

amateur mode
a masquerade
she no longer smiles
in private life

she was scum
lacking integrity
demanding a duel

case closed
fairy-princess too bold
but Vengeance Laws
requires fight of honor

[in some cases]
acclaimed combat skill
might be considered cheating

Dogs in Casinos Limerick


Phyllis Pette, of New York, hugs her dog, Baci, a 10-year-old Maltese, while near the slot machines inside the Showboat Casino Hotel in Atlantic City. The casino becomes the first in Atlantic City to allow hotel customers to bring their dogs.

Dogs in Casinos Limerick

A woman was shooting the breeze
Playing at the casino with much ease
She pulled at Jim Blake’s
And entered sev’ral sweepstakes
While holding her cute little loving Maltese.

Sonnet 24


Cloud Formations

Pilots are inexorably tied to weather. Under certain conditions, it would be certainly hazardous to fly. One day, when I was working at Edwards, one of my pilots was standing and staring at the weather. I stopped to watch him. It was so organic. His entire being was going up there, and he wanted to understand it, that day, to it’s fullest. The weather report would not be enough. Like a businessman reading the file on a prospective client, like an HR person reading about a prospective hiree, a farmer looking to see if it’s time to plant and of course, a sailor wondering where the prevailing winds will take him.

Sonnet XXIV

Just remember, if you crash because of weather, your funeral will be held on a sunny day. – Layton A. Bennett 

You stood there and gauged the patterns of air,
the clouds and the turbulence. Yet, the wind,
not robust enough to tousle your hair,
was able to make clarity rescind.
To and fro your eyes scanned the perilous
landscape. In your mind, a scenario
evolved, with way too many mischievous
heroics to feed your growing ego.
Then you pitched up into the nasty sky
as if you were controlling the weather.
Regardless of the conditions up high,
you would return on wing without feather.
Thus, as each day goes by in your young life,
you reappear to your offsprings and wife.
