31ST TO 1ST

Panic is a comic which picks …thick volcanic eruptions of regretful magic …to hurl problematic tragics at logic So relax 31st to 1st is just an exchange of baton …between ordinary days …with pressure impositions II All the resolutions unresolved All the hopes unrestored All the dreams in screams All the aspirations with fearful expirations […]

THE DANCE WATCH

The future keeps secrets …which births with time to create shocks …in the pleasant and or otherwise Leading this mind to struggle …to disentangle these questions II Those heads …nodding and shaking Will most soon still …to hide and cry? Those shoulders …playing ups and downs …like see-saws on a playfield Will they soon stiffen […]

POLITICOFAIR

Whiskers on rabbits …feeding fat From juices of ants …who are tasting bats Fair! So fair! II Crumbs of peace …drowning in pieces As tiring muscles …push protruding tummies …on ceremonial trucks Fair! So fair! III Like Oliver Twist …now it is a demanding twist …blood is the more …they need to store their failing […]

FLIPPED TO BAD

The first knew well They jingled their bells And brought joy to the world …by recognizing a birth II Now it’s all about …”What I want for Christmas” …”On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me” And the icing, …”So this is Christmas. What have you done?” Oh things have been […]

THE FESTIVE FEVER

The festive fever The needing needles The steaming shivers The growling giggles Nothing fetches fire on a heading head …in money’s dire lair …than the festive fever!

CLOSER DEED

Worship the earth …before worshipping the sky For the earth gifts you a standing …before head can raise to watch the sky II A light that shines outside its zone And darkens its surroundings …surely raises eyebrows Arms whose gifts …their legs know nothing about Surely are questionable III What shame it will be …if […]

BEAR YOUR FOES

Bests brush into a bore Cutting conversations …converting content But believe that I’ll break no boundaries …in bores of buddies Such burdens will break no bone …of my brain II Carry your cross Bear your burdens Box your beef But break no backs …into burning burnt brunts III You yield, yoke and yell Friends turning […]

DEALING WITH DRAGS

Greed has somehow met its seed …in a feed that drags its deeds …down Days when deadly docks shipped …and grazed down our bests …without questioning …are growing unwelcome II Days …when pets bet in jets without vets Yet innocents were made wet …with regrets …and frets …and get let into nets …set for them […]

YEAR OF RETURN

Lives left to languish in loss …live without luck …learn with limitations Sorrows sailed through servitude Ib “Soul’s smacked with slavery” “Bloomed berries replanted in burns” There’s been many of such analogies But this is a year of celebration A year of jubilation A year we know we can harvest greatness …from the sadness of […]

SOME PICTURES
