Poem: The Mock Epic of Blond Beard

The seven seas had never seen such a terror
As blond beard the first pirate of Nebraska
He had applied his pirating skills
Selling his yard sale finds on eBay
To fund his pirate ship the Emma Lee
A beauty of steel of polymer
With patches of bright white
Seats for two and off board motor
That once ran and would run again
Once he got permission from the missus

Poem: Domesticated Lyric

Watching the clock
As it marches on
Lying awake she wonders
To herself about motivations
For still being here

Does it make her happy
When it doesn’t bring her pain
Does it keep her from crying
When it doesn’t make her insane
