April Fool’s Day Poem

No Love For The Joker

What makes a Joker more of a man

than a king?

 

A king has hundreds of people

that serve him, prepare his food,

clothes him, cleans him,

and gets everything he wants.

Covered with jewelry, surrounded

by stone walls and steel.

 

He can start wars with whomever

and take other people’s land.

The people he conquers become his slaves

and he uses glory to explain chaos.

For that his name will go into the record books

and generations will remember his name.

 

A king’s ambition for power and the

preservation of his legacy is his only concern

even at the expense of the people “He” serves.

A Joker doesn’t need all this.

 

All a joker asks for is a smile

and he is willing to get it by his own

expense if necessary.

For that, you call him a fool.

The Merlin Show on Amazon!

When I was growing up I always believed that the legend of King Arthur was something out of a modern day talk show. A child from a king who manipulated a woman, who then rises to be king himself and marry a woman who would only cheat on him with his best friend. To make matters worse he would be manipulated into having intercourse with his half-sister and they would have a child of incest. If that doesn’t sound like something that would make a great talk show topic, then I don’t know what does. With the hardest working wizard in talk shows with his trusty troll by his side, The Merlin Show is something good to read if you’re looking for a break.

A short and sweet piece for you to pick up, laugh and finish to put you in a better mood and enjoy your day. This started out as a project I wrote for a college course but when it ended. I had people coming up to me and asking why I wasn’t training to be a comedian. I love to make people laugh and this is something I know you will enjoy.

This is the first play I’ve ever written and to be clear, nothing is to be taken seriously about this play. There are mature themes in this play, so I suggest this not be given to children under the age of 12. Again, if you want a great laugh, then this short play is for you. Click the link below and enjoy for only $0.99. Until the next is written.

 

My Struggle With Weight Loss

Submission or Pride? I Can’t Decide.

Children can be so cruel to one another,

and I became a victim of that cruelty first hand.

I wondered why it was considered not ok to pick on someone

based on race, religion or gender but it was ok

to pick on somebody because of weight.

Years of pity soon turned into periods of

rage, hatred, and even violence.

Jokes that would take a lifetime to tell and

words that will forever taint my soul.

So, I left a few scars of my own.

The only difference is that mine would show. 

Cowards are strong with tongues, not fists.

That’s when the picking stopped.

When the voices knew I would cross the line

and take things where they were too scared to go.

I found strength in their weakness and in their resentment.

I found joy once the picking stopped after years of trying to break

iron skin with hollow words responsible for the transformation.

Later, for my soul’s sake, I lowered my guard but never

gave in to the resentment that follows me to this day.

But now things have changed.

When I was younger,

if someone had told me that I would die

in 12 months if I didn’t lose the weight,

I would have said give me 11 months and

3 weeks

to think about it.

But now I am older and

I have friends who truly care about me

who want to see my outside match my inside.

Is that why I started? No.

My job requires lots of physical activity

that I can’t keep up with because of my

lack of physical ability.

Is this why I’ve started? No.

Physical attraction sure sounds like enough

of a motive but is that why…

I’ll save time by answering hell no!

Any woman that would just be with me

cause of the six pack can take six steps

back.

I look at my two cousins

who I’ve seen grow into two beautiful girls, and

I want to be alive to see them grow,

graduate and get married. Then

I also look at my nephew who was just born.

I want to be a part of his life and see him grow,

maybe into a football star, or just see him

become a great man like his father or

maybe his loving uncle.

Is this why I’ve started? Mostly.

It’s the little part which I’m not sure about.

As I lose weight, I start to think back about those time

and all the anger comes back.

This is supposed to make me feel better about myself

and fill my soul with pride, but sometimes it feels like

submission to those words that have tainted me

like a scarlet letter. 

I do notice the difference,

and I feel a new source of energy.

But feelings still remain.

I’ve always taken pride in myself

and my abilities because that’s the way

I was brought up.

But am I feeling pride in what I’m doing,

or am I submitting to those voices?

I just can’t figure out which one.

Cupid’s Gamble on Amazon!

Legends pass on through the generations, but their stories never stop influencing cultures. We live in a time where logic and facts have explained many questions about our past, but we still love mythology. We are blessed with priceless stories that have been told a thousand times over through literature, art, and film. Now it’s time for something original. This novel is based off the mythology of Cupid or Eros in Greek mythology. In this novel, the search for love will take many forms and more will be on the line than just a case of heartache.

The old gods have abandoned Earth to search for new planets to worship them, but Cupid decides to stay behind and watch over humanity. Cupid is abandoned on Earth with an entity that has a mysterious past which binds him to Cupid for its entire existence. The only purpose of this entity is to fuel humanity with envy, rage and jealousy through influence but never through will. It becomes an unstable relationship that pushes Cupid over the edge after several centuries of his foe undoing his labors and being a burden among the people Cupid loves. Cupid decides to play a game where the winner could potentially harm the very people Cupid cares for, but also give Cupid the peace he has long desired.

Cupid gives his foe a series of chances to find love with someone and win something the entity values more than a relationship or power, but not without stipulations. What starts out as a simple bet turns into chaos when the gods of old hear of Cupid’s gamble and urge him to call it off. The past becomes clear with every life that takes place and the present becomes more dangerous as the bet comes to a close. Cupid will eventually have to decide what’s more important after being warned of a dark fate that will occur if he doesn’t end the gamble. Are the people of Earth worth more than a simple gamble between one’s own pride and another’s identity? Enjoy and until the next is written.

 

Those Lips

Full both in form and emotion.

It’s an insult to cover them

with flavored additions

that just remove from their

Natural beauty.

 

If touching her

with my unworthy curves

meant carried the price

of losing breath.

I would gladly welcome asphyxia.

Why would a pair of curves

be worth a precious gift?

 

Because having life and living it

are two different things.

To have been blessed by them is a miracle.

There are a million others

so why are these above all?

 

The answer is quiet simple

and yet, very powerful.

These lips belong to the woman I love.

A Murder for a Murder: September 11th 2026 now on Amazon!

A day of remembrance turns into a dark reminder as once again there is a terrorist attack on the 25th anniversary of September 11th. A group of civilians, including the Mayor of New York are being held hostage. Threatened by a group of terrorists that have been plotting the attack for years with deadly intentions in mind. Being held for a ransom, the President of the United States will be forced to make a choice. Will he give in to the demands of a murderer or do something so radical, it would change the very image of what America stands for.

The events of this date will bring back feelings from the first 9/11 attacks like anger and sorrow as well as desires for revenge and retribution. All eyes now focus on a president who decides to make a radical move that throws everyone into uncharted waters. How will the world respond to these actions and most importantly, will it strengthen or weaken the nation he’s sworn to protect? Who will rise with the sun on September 12th when the deadline is met? Policies will be challenged, people will be conflicted, and a nation will remember that terrorism only needs a time, a place, and the most important thing of all… casualties.

The attacks on 9/11/01 was the darkest day I ever had and I wrote this as a reminder that freedom will always have enemies. Thank you for your contribution and your support. This is my first book to start off a long and hopefully successful career so I sincerely hope that you enjoy reading this story as I have creating it. A special thank you to the military for keeping us safe and making sure that another 9/11 doesn’t happen again. If you’re interest then click the link below and please spread the word. Thank you and until the next is written.

Tribute to Robin Williams

A Brilliant Robin

Ever since you and Mindy met,

I have never been able to keep my eyes off you.

When I saw you sail in with Olive

and flex your big forearms,

I knew you were a brilliant Robin.

 

I never needed toys

cause I watch you for amusement.

I never had to go fishing with grandpa

because I was watching a king on the screen.

 

The way you made us laugh with Comic Relief.

It was like watching poetry in motion,

like you were the leader of a dead society.

And you touched our hearts with more than comedy.

 

You’ve been everywhere from cold Moscow

to seeing a good morning in Vietnam.

Just to see you do what you can do

is a real awakening.

 

The way you can change colors

by turning into a big blue clown,

making dreams of a pauper come true

easier than saying Bibidy Bobidy Boo.

 

You’ve even changed sexes,

and proved that being an old lady

can be funny and lovable.

It’s almost like you have artificial intelligence.

 

Then, there is your voice

that hides so many others.

If I didn’t know any better Jack,

I’d say you were a machine covered in furry skin.

 

You can’t be real.

It’s like you popped out of Neverland

because you never get old in spirit.

There’s always a fresh joke for you to tell.

 

No birdcage can hold you.

I would have an easier time

trying to catch air with hands.

Your humor is what dreams can come.

 

You have done so much a man can do.

It’s almost like you have Insomnia

because you never seem to sleep.

You should be man of the year.

If there was a museum of you,

I’d wait all night there with happy feet.

 

I’d take a picture of you,

and rush it to one hour photo.

I hope somehow I get to meet you someday.

So, until then I will say thank you for everything.

You are a brilliant Robin, and, until there is another,

Good Hunting Mr. Williams.
