"A Day Off"

The coffee's on
The wife is gone
Boys are up
It's time to strut

"The Revelation Seven"

Messengers, yes
But not five-point cutouts of gold-foil card stock

Orbs of gravity pulling everything
Massive pressure
Fusion of atoms
Splattering matter
Seven of these!
Perhaps the Pleiades?

He made them
placed them
supplies them
guides them
Surely, He can hold them

Messengers to the Church
to the world
(Stolen by a thieving deceiver)
But still proclaiming
His story
Declaring His glory


"You'll be back tomorrow—
We have the best coffee"
Caffeine dripping with sarcasm?
Or does he really believe it?

Maybe his experience is limited
Or perhaps I missed the wink
Either way, the java's effective
But not so tasty

Just on my way
And only pennies per ounce

I'll be back tomorrow

"In A Sea Of Goldfish"

In a sea of goldfish sat a Bryce
He looked around, said, "Hey, this is nice!"
We fed him a bit more
He threw most to the floor
Then we gave him a bath once or twice

"Pinto The Frog"

In the strange case of Pinto the frog,
"Innocent," he pleads (for the green fog)
He claims a magic fruit
Was the real cause of toot;
At least he didn't point to the dog

"Austin Commute"

It wasn't so bad this morning
But I arrived an hour early
If I'd left later—
even a few minutes?
Only the clock will tell
After all
It's only my first time

"Pile Of Carpet"

There once was a man from San Marcos
Came home to a strange pile of carpet
Didn’t know what it was,
Scratched a chin full of fuzz,
And said, “P’raps I’ll take it to market”
