Mission Improbable

if I had a superpower

I’d like to have the ability

to mute the world without vote

 

imagine the silence

as we spin through the universe

recharged batteries remote

 

the empty mouths praying for no one

my designated mission improbable

would self destruct in a mote

An Ideal World

In an ideal world

the neighbours would self combust

traffic would be banned from my street

and my house would expand with every new book

In an ideal world

I would own the house next door

build a gate in the fence

and keep it locked

The Silent Knight

At first I thought you were a knight

As you came riding into sight

You sat upon your horse so still

Your silence nearly sapped my will

 

You gazed at me with eyes so blue

I felt as if you really knew

When my heart skipped a beat and still

Your silence nearly sapped my will

 

You knelt upon the grass so green

A gallant sight I’d never seen

Beseeched me with your eyes until

Your silence nearly sapped my will

 

You’ve been dead now for forty years

And I have shed all of my tears

Of sorrow now I’ve had my fill

Your silence has now sapped my will
