Spiritual Guides

Looking forward or Back
… it’s all a blur …
Goals remain Unchanged
… not to mention, a bit deranged …
I adhere to my Principles
… woven into the grid of fine fashion …

First and Foremost
… have I got your attention …
And last but not Least

Can you harness the wild Beast
that has taken up residence
within me
… domesticated by your Midas touch …

Germ Warfare -by Robert Gardner

Declaring rebellion to a callous God,
To technical wizards in The Land of Odd,
A new born alliance of parasites bounced
Against the octagonal side of their cage,
Immune to the power of human rage
To misdirect their nights and days –
Now told what Pentagon Generals would do
If all their aunts and uncles, too,
Decided they should disobey,
And murder only a town per day,
They twisted every prison bar,
Broke every petri dish in sight,
And then slipped past the prison guard
And vanished in the autumn night.
