Andy Carl Poems
I have seen past the Magician's tricky sleight of hand, and detest His great illusion.
The Tree of Waking Life
The tree that says with elation, 'I think I'll fly instead. Although there's but water in my roots to last me through the day,
Failure? I Doubt It....
Halfway there, Halfway there Doomed to always be Halfway there.
Were You Also Dreaming?
Were you also dreaming, This morning around sunrise? And did we dance together, between the four posts
Silly Robot... Choice Is For Humans
They say to let your heart decide, but what do hearts know of choice? They're ruled by electric pulses, and tangled tyrant nerves.
A Prayer... My Prayer
I lift my soul to the God of all nations, and offer my service to all of His creation. I accept my place in all that is, and worship the beauty of my own being.
The American Epidemic
The girls in this town they make me sick someone stole their minds and painted their lips but oh sometimes when their shakin their hips it makes me lose my own.
The Earth is Still in Motion

Inside a wooden dresser That your mother kept so neat is a pair of ballet slippers too small now for your feet.

I have seen past the Magician's
tricky sleight of hand,
and detest His great illusion.
I know his secret,
despise his intentions,
and pity the folks
who squeal with delight
believing the illusion is real.
Some have given their life's savings
to watch this crude show,
others have given their lives.
And he uses their offerings
to thicken the veil
and keep them smiling
I know it's not real
and wish to call him out,
but it's not my place
to ruin the show
for those who paid so much
for their ...
