~~~~~ Is your smile within your heart, Or is it only pasted on your face? Is it you, yourself that you impart? If we search, will we find a trace? Form versus content, cultural more, With clothes and words just right, May show a view of what’s in store. Though we believe it true, not […]

In the Key of E – Energy

~~~~~ Sad to say, you’ll wonder, the prince of darkness has lost his place The world outside informs me the king of darkness wears that face Or is it only me who is lost, despite the daily horrors we are shown Only me and only I who believes that humanity’s sanity has flown Choices and […]
