The Angelic Garden

Trick or Treaters
Big Schemers and Tweeter
no need for greed
in the Angelic Garden
of infinite abundance
where the mushrooms
and toadstools
are always in season
The Candy Man cometh
with more than plenty

flavoured darkness
from a realm beyond
all rhyme & reason

Meanwhile …
here on Planet Earth
A feline on the prowl
to the beat on the street
of an Allen Ginsberg howl
The walk, the talk, to stalk
To click the mouse
of an indiscreet meet and greet

War on Drugs

‘Mr. Waron D’Rugs’

For those missing in reaction

I’ve hunted snakes

of blood on the ground
from the gun American
That ‘War on Drugs’
was never meant to be won
Always profitable for some
Isn’t it high time
to make a stand?
