Poets Voices

I’ve got a hundred poets voices ringing in my head,

Many generations giving me inspiration,

Oh the living ones & the dead,

I don’t mean that they literally talk to me

That would be spooky & crazy,

but the work they put to paper, 

the work I love to read & study,

helps me & guides me

To be the best that I can be

Gypsy Queen

He was the son of carnival folk,

all who knew him said he hardly spoke

but all that changed when she came along,

A true gypsy queen playing her charming song

They were both wild, loved to move their feet

They talked & danced together to their own drum beat

He told her, “girl, I’ve never felt more free”

She said, “You always will be, if you stick with me”

New Poem

He’s been in a lot of trouble

& had a lot of fails

He’s even spent more than

a few nights in jail

He’s got a wife that Loves him

but she wouldn’t pay his bail

She said I won’t help you

until you help yourself

She decided she’d had

enough one day

She said if you want me to stay

Let me tell you man,

Some things really have to change

I won’t spend my life watching you

Throw yours away
