bIn Me You'll Find

Nightmares that scare
Terrorist without care
Creator of all fears
Destroy all you hold dear

Insane killers lurking
Mass slaughter while smurking
Phone taps, computer hacks
Frail bodies tortured black

A dishonest politician
Inhumane living conditions
The neighbor next door
Hustling adolescent whores

Enemy of the state
One all love to hate
Finding me every night
Yes, Channel 6, so right
Barry A. Lanier



bIndian Wisdom

One day I think, I shall get in the end
Just a little of the wisdom, of my Indian friends
Seems they were gazing, sun, moon, and stars
While I was running round', writing on napkins in bars
They swaying with leaves, among flowers in sun
Whereas my time spent, with maidens on the run
Ardently now listening, with a most receptive ear
No longer time dining, on my Budweiser beer
In often ancient and mystical, rhythmical flaunt
Half-way round' the world, something I want
Petitioning and seeking, to master their style
For the moment my wisdom, a newborn child
Barry A. Lanier



bInspecting Myself

I don't know what this is all about.
when you start turning fifty?
Lying in bed at night to rest, yet
lately all I do is inspect myself.
Scratching my leg in bed last night,
feeling an itchy area like a patch,
of dried graham cracker, mixed with
bubble gum, stuck to my leg. Hell it
was something growing on me! I
scrapped it off and bled for two days.
Suddenly things are starting to grow
one me. All shapes, sizes, some hidden
others in sight, Even conglomerations.
Little warts, big warts, stuff that don't
even resemble warts. Get in front of the
mirror now every morning. I never used
to do that. It's reserved for women. I found
one in the corner of my eyelid this morning.
It looked like someone had put Super Glue
in the corner while I was sleeping. I pull down
my eyelid and the little thing looked like a
spread out batwing stuck into the corner.
Then I look into the corner of my nose, and
yes, I was right, a little round thing stuck in the
corner. Now when in the heck did that get
there? Now days, I have to lay down to inspect
other body parts. We won't go there. Well, life
has a way of making each day more interesting!
Barry A. Lanier



bIntention To Escape Him

Learning a new language
Where I can better relate
Honing skills and the courage
To yet leave him one day

Forever trapped in this existence
Praying and singing those hyms
Obsessed within my misery
Intentions of escaping him

Sweet dreams will sustain me
Through the pain and strife
Until my prince comes along
Wanting just me in his life
Barry A. Lanier
