Relationship Goals

“Hey girl”, I texted.

“What’s up?” She replied.

Then I flashed back to the first three minutes of Pixar’s masterpiece, “Up”

And inevitably cried.

What Faith Means To Me

Today I thought about the world

And realized I may be

The star of the highest-budget porno

Filmed in the 27th century

In which nerdy, broke, virgin poets

Are the ultimate symbol of lust.

So far I’ve only seen opening credits

But just saying… In God I trust!

The One That Got Away

She was a lovely Venomoth

With 409 CP.

Although I gave her many Razz

She would not stay with me.

She ripped off all my Pokeballs

And left me pale with pallor.

I hope that she finds happiness

With someone from team Valor.

The War Goes On

They say they’ll write me,

Keep me up to date

As for my lost luggage

I anxiously wait.

But sometimes I’m weak

And I go online

To check out the status

Of that “delayed” bag of mine.

I type in my last name,

An eight digit code

And wait five painful seconds

For the website to load

Only to find

Its status unchanged.

It’s made a me a little

Completely deranged.

“Assign me a driver”

I woefully shriek,

But “findmysuitcase.com”

Doesn’t hear what I speak.

That’s how I’ve been living

For most of the day

Until United Airlines

Sends that suitcase my way.

Live-Streaming From My Heart

I wish you could have been there

When I walked for the first time.

I wish you could have been the one

To give me my first dime.

I wish that you’d had the chance

To see my first crayon art,

But I know that you couldn’t

So I live-streamed it from my heart.

Sometimes we are seperate

When we wish we were near.

Sometimes we’re gone for hours,

Sometimes for many years.

I wish you could’ve seen it

When I got on stage and sang.

I wish you could have been there

When the wedding bells rang.

I wish you could have hugged me

Each time my life was torn apart

But I know that you couldn’t

So I live-streamed it from my heart.

Sometimes life asks questions

That have no good answers.

Some folks must be soldiers

So others can be dancers.

I wish that I had known you,

Asked you questions and the like.

I wish we could watch movies,

Play with cards or take a hike.

I wish that we could blame the dog

When one of us would fart.

Someday we’ll have the chance. ‘Til then

I’ll live-stream from my heart.

Sometimes the cruel or thoughtless

Can take away a life.

Sometimes we see a uniform

And not its kids and wife.

I wish you could have been there

When that bomb fell from the sky.

I wish you could have been here

So you wouldn’t have to die.

I wish the world would parley

Before any war would start.

At least I know you feel the love

Live-streaming from my heart.

Robin’s Faux-Pas

As I lay in the dust,

My body broken,

My blood pooling into a lake

I remembered saying

“At least I’m not an orphan.”

Sorry Batman, my mistake.

It Works For Both Parties

A hangdog and a long-faced horse

Walked into a bar.

A few hours later they both walked home

‘Cause they didn’t own a car.

They didn’t much enjoy themselves

Nor change their sorry fate.

But it was fun compared to

Watching the GOP debate.
