    I am thinking
    About myself
    I am thinking
    About other people
    I am remembering something
    I am thinking
    About the world
    I want to tone it:
    Earth, man, animal, water, fire, air etc
    And all toward perfection
    Or put them in their right
    Places of interaction.
    I want to in all these
    Make me and other men happy
    Sum up all these
    And make them
    The reason for poetry.

    No one needs to throw a conniption fit as aspartame is microbe shit
    Cucumbers make pickles fit & really not so much the dull end of it
    After softer pate bones meld, the whole skull will presumably knit
    not unlike a beach buggy on V.W. beetle chassis from a 1-piece kit
    just as NAPA can readily get the big money strippers charge for tit,
    & topless bikini wrestling in a pool-liner lined, Jello-brand Jello pit
    lit by low light to make shadows of stripped stripper grime and grit
    Clingy goo in gobs makes mucho mas bulbous 2-tiny-titty-tit knobs
    denying aficionados of aureolae & mammae 2-hooter-spotting jobs
    in a skin market made to lure lonely, bug-eyed, badly-dressed slobs
    who group group-wise as do groupie grouplets grouping into mobs
    The chick with saline sacks is the boob robber as each salt bag robs
    ta-ta soldiers of swelling experiences gawking at undulating glands
    or: nipple doodlers of their manful task of appraising udder glands
    and whatever sways their way as fringe benefits & illegal demands

    I'm no denizen of injecting mailman-delivered, mail-ordered Botox
    as I'm not ready to extract the mailman's lard ass from my mail box

    Nadine Gordimer pimped race-baiting commies till her hooters fell
    May this Winnie Mandela necklace-loving witch rot & burn in hell

    This guy is obviously a bigoted, homo-phobic, racist bi-polar sob, but he can write poetry. I made myself read through some of his stuff and I hate to say this, but the guy is a very good poet. His writings are better and more exciting than any of the so-called elite here, like Lamont Palmer.
    My hat's off to you, Richard.

    Whether you ply your dirty trade as a whore locally or in a far land
    While dancing the nigger rumba or spazzing out to Judy Garland
    The best bucket of gooey chicken has the face of Sanders, Harland
    It's better to kill Arabs for their oil than to squeeze it from tar sand
    Hybrid chicken is mucho gooder on a platter at a stinking car stand
    The assassins of Czar Nicky shot the czar chest and the czar hand
    “Twist these Big Tits Purple” ain't sung by Ringo's All-Starr Band
    Of all the disgusting fishes I have yet to see the creepy gar canned
    Diseased adrenals yellowed Kennedy worser than Jack Paar tanned
    I'll harmonize in the toilet mucho worser than a drunken bar band
    Snakes bite when goaded like fires rage when flames are fanned
    Hell chars souls eternally, burning brilliantly like any star manned
    Lesbian golfers, out for muff-diving excitement, consider par bland
    A dull knife cuts a dyke's throat less cleanly than 1 well sharpened
    Crooks at Sears benefited from the bankruptcy that Kmart planned
    One may have a green thumb, a head for business but no art gland
    Stinking congress would gladly legislate to have your fart banned

    Today I might manually express my smelly chihuahua's glands anal
    as the ground is dry and no force will wet them as well as the rain'll
    In nations as diverse as Paraguay where the women die on the land
    Charlie Rich sang that no long-haired woman should go unmanned
    When fresh fish fails & sea snails are extinct, eat carp that's canned
    A garbage truck driver's happy to sit when he's not allowed to stand
    My milky cow's milk stays warm even when her udders are fanned
    Mama rocks to rock and roll and not to niggers in a big nigger band
    My horrifying obesity is due to a silly failure to rest between chews
    I was ejected from a Baptist church after falling asleep in the pews
    Few people prefer wearing army boots instead of fancy dress shoes
    Mummers prefer huzzahs & encores over disruptive hisses & boos
    There are staged flights from pig sties over the scummiest of roles
    Are Albanians, Lithuanians & Czechoslovakians lazier than Poles?
    One smoke dream is a pipe dream in resurrecting the last, great auk
    Mainly, among men, I manfully spend less for brick than for block
    Mostly I employ making marks with markers more than with chalk
    A wristwatch is far less cumbersome than an old grandfather clock
    To deaden a hen, with a single-shot.22 rifle, requires a single cock
    Roasting children makes for hen-pecking in a skillet and in a crock
    Amongst sailors one'd find Brian Epstein rough-trading at the dock
    Sermonizing, testifying, preaching and evangelizing to queer flock
    in Beatle shirt, Cuban boots, pink Liberace bloomers & Elvis frock
    Those are many who've come to conquer, to beleaguer and to gawk
    Taunt the normal flits, frighten the adjusted trulls whom they mock
    with giddy banter, serialized chit-chat & cognitive, fluoridated talk
