Questions Around the Bend

What is a happy mind? How doth one define a thing yet not perceived in the eye thine wavering heart defines as superior?

Is it

Likenable to that which pops in the head like mental fireworks?

Or more something like a tickle?

Is it


The smell of baking bread when neither hunger nor thirst plague you?

Is it


The weary hand with nought to do?

A happy mind… 


I need what I can neither define nor find

The thoughts of loss and not having seem to control my mind

Consume design it says to me

Break the jaws and set me free

All the world opens to thee

Except for thee

Who aren’t for me

You aren’t for she

But artfully you do the shaming

All that sauce but somehow’s laming

Framing game the teacher’s plaything came king

Or kingpin

For knuckles around the bound of two fingers pound the pavement but for larvas

Pupas proudly flap the wing

I like my room bathed in a smokey haze

Fill up death watch Cerberus graze

Monkeys and eleven ducks

Fly & gave ill’eaven fucks

Filled the river fligin’ nutts

Frilled the river slingin’ rocks

Pulled the carton and the box

The free will die no more.

Where the ravens call

Afterall the fun’s still ripe for picking if the river’s drawn

The river’s prawn

Fawn for Winter when the Summer’s gone

Bummer’s lawn

Fall fashion and you’re wondering if Raven’s light can reach tomorrow by tonight

Forresto’ cover brain & brawn

Aid & on

Far in Dawn

Wanes to Springfield

Two Dope 4 Wordz

Steel spiel

Writing on the wheel

Rabbit’s got the fuckers

And the farmer didn’t squeal


Stay lining like the bakers and the heel

Makers and the reel

Fakers enemyin’

Flakers and a Queen

Empress on the scene

Force is never seen

Horses never ween

Cost of butter creme

Pies ain’t never been

Lost in rhyming timing

Now the Sea just got the Z

Zee zazzer feddy woppin’ to the top

Went to see the bottom now I’m heading up the gwop

Lost with no words

Swerve without curve

Chains gettin’ tighter till you don’t know what you’re worth

Babies stay bawlin’

Bringin’ on the calming

Momma’s here hon, don’t you worry

What’s the problem?

If it is warring 

We war with words

When it is sword fighting 

The pen will bleed ink reed feels freed from prisons

Trapped like birds in cages but won’t stop



GOD ‘s not dead

And is love

Fixed Satan with the blood he wa’n’t spillin’.

Sat on Mount Olympus

– Hades flew up to the sky –

Chillin’ with his brothers, never have to say goodbye but the fry

Filling up the void:

You know it’s love when angels cry

Sky is on the rise

Forever more we’s on the flies.

Lax to chill the Winter finger friggin’ up the fly

Fing her fig n hump the fryeye

We says goodbye.


One is like the weird wild

The other quite the fair child

Not so lost but wandering on

The third is like the fierce mild

Seven is but the fallen dawn

Broken sticks is six

Five is quite the broken bond

Four can never fix


This is not the playground

This is the mad wild 

Where big dogs fuck around

We lunge at sharks and- 
 - Call me the king wolf
We won't back down ‘cause

We hold the kingdom

We’s who the kings from

Deez nuts have the king’s son

Bring your lion king come

We'll have piece for supper

Brag about a lioness

The wolf bitch is tougher


Jumping through the fire rings

Can't tame the fire

Try to buy a warrior 

Must kill to get her skin

Wonder wonder wonder

Cannot figure what's within

Try to replicate the kin

The fear devours from within

Snap back and your head’s gone

We wandering for chill

Locked us

In the madhouse


Can’t find the right pill

Even after

My blood spills

It still screams


So they threw us to the wind

Hope to see us never ‘gain

But the sea just never end

And the free just never blend

Try deceive us

Never win

Because truth lies

In the darkness

& that's just where we hang

No knot from the limb

Tell them try that shit again

We'll see if niggers never win

Word: Fastidious

The Princess and the Pea

The strangest oddity
The driving force’s the diving board

March on ‘head but what you dying for?

The hired core,

Desired ore.

Buy a girl with diamonds and then call her whore

She says no more

She’s on her knees to please but now the shame’s hardcore

She’s off that floor

Gotta get out that door

Bye-bye to the haters showed her pimp the score

She ain’t no whore

At least no more.

She heard that change is come and flipped the script real quick,

Didn’t know what she was worth but felt the whip just wasn’t it

Nor is dick.

Was walking to the ticking of the people’s pick

It told her she was nothing and she thought she could believe it

Sobbing on the floor but then she thought that she should sweep it

Swallowed all the shit until she wondered where the weep went

Didn’t know that she could BE Strength

Started on the low but at the mo’ she’s on the deep end

Flying high and keefin’

Swimming with the birds and

Peering over world’s end.
Look and see a woman;

Can’t remember where the girl went

And you let her go, when?

Walked away from man saying

Sorry I’ll hold my own hand

Yeah, I’ll be my whole band
