john sensele Poems
Monkey See, Monkey Do
Maladjusted men sometimes don't know how to love; They merely suffer the lie of indigo infatuation That titillates their lemon libido and dims their saucy sensibility; They jump on the beige bandwagon of flabby flirtation
Feet of Clay
Feet of clay, fragile feet of clay make you human; You refuse the scurrilous status of an ignoble idol; It lives in the mind of an ardent admirer; The sycophant believes you deserve a prominent pedestal
Cunning Cyclops plants crackpot cookies On your cyber computer, on your phony phones to steal Your intelligent individual information and your personal photos To sell them to amber advertisers in a dubious deal
Handle me with gentleness Because I'm your better half Sent from on high To swallow flak on your behalf
Bimbo's natty nails plucked out his heart, Flung it on the chopping block, Diced it, salted it and kneaded it like dough Which they threw into a sock
The hurricane became a loud and proud lass Who swore to simmer and shear my shaven life. With scorn, the hurricane kicked my kinky carcass, Chanted aloud and cast spells from her fife.
Death sneaks into lives and robs parents And fathers of beloved offspring. Sons and daughters death fragments In Winter, Summer, Autumn and Spring.
Beliefs stalk my life and tear me from My friends who no longer feel We can roam and storm Rome To strike a compromise deal.
Death is the moderator that levels the playing field For the rich and the poor to escort each person To receive according to his input the yield That he earned without committing treason or arson.
Grief, you kick me when I'm already down Although I haven't teased or gazed at you And you etch on my weary face a frown That I hate to display at the bayou.
A New Day
A brand new day has dawned For me and you to engage In activities your future phoned To recommend services of the sage.
Leave Me Alone
Prickly wrinkle Weekly tinkle Leave me alone.
Pain and Strain
Friendship and kinship Advertise; Necklace and bootlace Accessorise;
I sometimes wonder whether alcohol is a friend or a foe That flies and smuggles me into seventh heaven Only to bring me crashing back to the blade of a hoe Where I ask if I‘d really danced in psychedelic haven.

Monkey See, Monkey Do
Maladjusted men sometimes don't know how to love;
They merely suffer the lie of indigo infatuation
That titillates their lemon libido and dims their saucy sensibility;
They jump on the beige bandwagon of flabby flirtation
To pluck the pleasure of pussy passion
And waste wonderful women during grim gestation.
Mad men turn women into boxing bags;
They feed them on bored bun, blind biscuit and boastful bean;
From bandy binge drinking they cause a shameful scene
And whack their warm woman, their quaint queen
Who they promised to love and hold till drab ...
