Pinnacle

I had to reach the pinnacle

My intentions quite rabbinical

So I rode a road up a mountainside

I braved the rocky roads on my yellow Vespa

My headphones blasted Moody Blues

I think it was their "Best Of..."

My scooter got a flat

'Cause the mountain's rocks were sharp

But I was on a mission - my purpose not some lark

I sought the Ten Commandments,

Or maybe Noah's Ark

And so I climbed with gusto

Rising higher without stop

I was disappointed

When I reached the top

Because I found not one

Of the relics that I seek

I looked into the distance

To see them on a nearby peak

I stomped my feet in anger, feeling like a sap

Should've paid more than 50 cents for my map

I stomped my feet so hard

That I went and sealed my fate

Now I fall flailing - aiming for a mountain lake

Safe Word

Woke up alone

In our bed

My head feels

Kinda' hazy

It throbs in pain

Oh, there's a stain

It could be blood-

Or gravy

Perhaps

We should stop mixing

Alcohol with S&M

Because

Booze makes me black out

On our safe word

Now and then...

DJ Prose-a-Lot

There'll be plenty of time

For you folks to eat

Now is time to get moving-

So up on your feet

When Prosers get dancin'

It's gonna' make heat

BOOM-shack-a-lacka

BOOM-shack-a-lacka-BOOM!

Dem Prosers din gone

And set fire to the room!

I think that the neighbors

Gone call "Police!" soon

Time to get dancing out

Under the moon

Before the arrival

Of them "Blue Boys"

Let's turn it up Prosers

And make some real noise:

The roof

The roof

The roof is on fire!

We don't need the water-

Let the motherf~cker burn!

(Damn! Who was that masked DJ? No, seriously, who was that? The fire department wants to know... ;)

Goddess of Death

I picked flowers

For the Goddess of Death

I gave them to her

When I breathed

My last breath

She told me a secret-

That Life was a test

And my spirit was nurtured

By giving my best

I asked if I passed

And she laughed - I think

Then somehow managed

To give me a wink...

Never Forget

Of bombs and blood

And temper tantrums

A madman sought keys

To the inner sanctum

That he might spread

His hateful madness

And mark Man's end

In bitter sadness...

Upon a steed

Of bankers' greed

He burned the World

In meth-filled haze

Till men of conscience

Put stop his ways

Never to allow again

A monster masquerading

In the skin of a man

Never forget...

meth iz deth...

My world on hold

Smoking a bowl-

No answers found

Trapped in the glass.

I'm spun on the tip

An unwavering torch

Braving flame

Sweaty and scorched.

Then I got busy-

Setting me free

Though I'm foiled

And quite fidgety.

Only managed

To make things

Much worse

Now

My spirit feels soiled.

Friendships are lost

My life is aflame

With no one

But me

Left to blame...

It's All Music - Dance With It

She moves

Across hot asphalt

In a slip of

Shimmering silk

Her soul

A whirling dervish

Turns the World

In dizzy tilt

To spin unending joy

Makes an angry devil spit

No matter what the troubles

It's all music-

Dance to it!

Illusion

Lost to water's dark

I miss my mark

Because

I followed my eyes

Instead of my heart

If I trust what I see

I'll continue to be

Bloody chum

In a shark filled sea

Food for illusionists

And Masters of Lies

I hear a boat...

But the devil drives

Change

Tracks of old sins

Mark my arms

Yet my hope rises

With the dawn

I am one

Of countless

Meditations

Of God

Trying to change

From the path

I've trod

A Kiss Before Dying

I dance with Death

She's Life's dark wife

And when we're done

She swings her scythe

But not before

A single kiss

To seal

Long Sleep's

Unending bliss
