PoeArtry by Charles Frederickson & Saknarin Chinayote

Barack to the Future imperfect
     Tense burrowing through loose earthworm
          Infested soil dirt thrown up
               Mined molehills aerating fresh breath

Hillary running around in tandem
     Nonstop drive bloodlet veins bypass
          Rosy flushed seconding windswept change
               Halo glow diminishing invincible aura

Dreamscape ticket McCain in buttinshi
     VIPers spewing forked tongue venom
          Malice in DCeption slithering sidewinders
               Rattlesnakes shedding tarnished glisten scales

The dynamic duo of always toptimistic upstARTs, Charles Frederickson & Saknarin Chinayote edit, an eclectic cosmopolitan poeartry quarterly EZine. Check out Dr. Chazz’s No Holds Bard website:, and Saknarin’s new Glad Thaidings exhibition:
