The Madness of Wills.

It’s nipping at my head
Making me wish I was dead.
My body’s attacking me
As well as stress you see

The bastards grind us down
Pushing under, they watch us drown.
All they want is money
All we want is peace.

They want the highest price
They may as well throw a dice
As our throats they slice
Betraying us times twice

Those siblings are a joke
A Will turns family to smoke.
The Executor’s job’s bespoke
He’s on a limb,no help, no hope.

The brother makes Cane and Able
Like best friends round a table.
Causing trouble at every turn
I hope the bastard burns.

Décima Escape.

I need to feel wind in my hair
Escape my tormenter and ride
To blow my mind’s cobwebs aside.
Throw caution up into the air
Trip the light fantastic,with care
Bring to me my black stallion.
Sailing land like a Galleon
This is not time for me to bide
Whip up my senses, joy and pride.
Flee from the mean Rapscallion.

One-Liner Wednesday.

It’s pouring with rain hubby is up a ladder.

Me : “What are you doing.”

Hubby: ” Making covers for the new security lights.”

Me: ” Why?”

Hubby: ” Because they are too bright.”

Part of one #1linerWeds. Hosted by LindaGHill.

#WordlessWednesday: Reject Nihilism

What ever happened to:”“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

Two on a Rant

Rants, humor, sarcasm, and a haiku-like substance? It's hard to know what's going to come out of our minds next.
