Spider spins his web
Deceit piles upon deceit
Buoyed by success and power
The real lies begin.
I have a strong feeling that one of my followers in particular will like this one… this one’s for you, Denis!

This week’s prompt is “monkey”… and it finds me in a bit of a silly mood. You’ve been warned!
Pity brass monkeys.
Our measure of cold weather?
Freezing their balls off!
Families are tough…
I’m not a monkey’s uncle,
Cuz he’s mine instead!
Hard not to see work
As a mad, pooping, screeching
Monkey on my back

You are not alone
When stood before the mountain.
Relax. Slow down. Breathe.

Sobbing in the dark
Waiting for the final sleep
To set my song free

A life spent waiting
For love’s swift, sharp thunderclap
Slow plagued by sunshine

Real friends cannot be bought
But they are hard won

Don’t travel the earth
Seeking wisdom and answers:
You’ll find them within

Cruising on vapours
At the end of a long year

Covered in glory,
For other people’s triumphs
Monkey climbs the tree
Walking through the woods
We get covered up in leaves
Doing what feels right
However it seems,
Life’s not a cover version
So write your own song

From a Grinch-based limerick yesterday, to a series of political haiku today… I like to offer variety on here 🙂
Getting strung along:
Sell us by the pound
Feeding us their spin
Gorging us like mute cattle
Keeping us in place
We’re puppets on strings
No control over choices
Not the ones that count
