A Short Poem About Short Lives


psoo
Time stalls to leisure,
Confessor endeavored professor,
Tribe withdrawals.

Possessor mind primal,
With Fentanyl,
Addiction prideful,
Cites exciting asides.
Skies rifled,
Cities get an eyeful.

Uppercut


psoo
Quiet relationship, then gating,
College failed in relation.
Poems tight, metaphorical like,
Similarly quiet, gait penned.

Scholarship not pellet feed,
Lettuce where the fences meet,
Where the parents meet,
And fight over simple weeds,
Lifestyle and personality like.

PSO
Traversing the forest,
Lakelands' Adonis denies support,
A life abridged, lies purported,
Rhymes dismissive,
Current from shore;
Spies thwarted, imported, 
Assorted, awarded, 
Escorted, extorted, 
Aborted, recorded;
Rewarded as kings,
Buried like swords.

Verse, chorus,
He is upon us,
Life no more warm;
Files, less security,
Flies less than before.

Second Class Citizen


PSO
Fanciful dreams idyllic,
A World kept inside,
Drinking of the streams,
Field workers denied;
Hands tied, perch supplied
Arms raised and sullied,
Ashen as the skies;
Blinking in acceptance,
The step child pummeled,
Guised as it is wired,
More ignorance desired,
So says the child;
Father humbled:
To be eaten by lions,
He mumbles and flies,
The world a mystery,
He inevitably hides.

Backhanded


PSO
Perhaps one day I will garner respect,
Socializing among my colleagues apt,
Buried in a monocle and top hat,
My money just as monopoly, amateurs.

Brownies


PSO
Pond upon oceans,
A death of water,
Little men upon thrones,
Their hearts of flower,
My life but a tome,
My life a tower;
Stairs to climb,
With life inactive;
Above the clouds,
Time spent sunburnt,
Cowards;
My designs immaculate,
Eating flies as flax,
Confusing images,
In place of facts.
Again the future lost,
Pipes accost the ground,
The ice storm comes;
Some go into town,
Some stay lost,
Together same,
Both die apart.

No Braggo


PSO
I have concepts for days,
Metaphors for four hours,
And wordplays for wakes.
I'm not bragging,
I'm just impaired,
Flawed above the mane.
Miscarrying paper knowledge,
Cutting loves careless arms.
She finds herself wanting,
Hair flowing, river forming,
Learning is her sophism,
So she lies until tomorrow,
Feigning disinterest ursury,
Tales of cursory, courtesy.
A verse aloft in the clouds,
Sounds out to an empty crowd,
Life of deception floundered.
World as in twitching flour,
Face equal, equivalent arms,
She curtsies and bows, turns;
Runs away, her face as ours.

Methaphors I


PSO
Florian mispronounced completely,
Adding elles and a monarchy,
Standard wordplay misused efficiently.
Soap of the mind, floss of the horse,
Cutting our teeth on useless fleece.
Forgetting their needs, people worsen,
Fleeing to worlds sincere yet fleeting.
Spying, leaving decrying yourself not,
Received to cheering regardless,
Archean and poor as thoughtforms are.

Fashionably Late


PSO
No honor or Bravery,
Mulled over too long,
Followers betray,
Feelings astray amongst.
Lay waste upon their pores;
Their universe stainless,
Faces like rust;
No steel to steel,
No virtue of thievery,
To steal regardless;
Complacence unjust;
