Clout Kraut

Sour Power

in the tower

The now or

nevermore

rousing bloused

lout scouts

pouting and pounding

hate resounding

from outhouse spouts

The bow on

rebel shore

doubt throughout

bouts of draught

their stout hounding

shouts enshrouded

loud and lauded

applauded

appalled

brawling

bawling

falling

sprawling

and sawing

the old ropes

hope loaded gold

and scrolls in

blindly

enfolded

bold slogans

into rogue

sons watching

pocket book

time bombs

tic

tocking

a populace stalking

and gawking

awkwardly

talk locked

cock blocked

and positive

their side is

sensitive to the

prerogative

we insist

exists

in mystic

histories we persist

in twisting

habitual sinners

kissing missiles

with

shit eating grins

as we

spin to win

gingerly administering

our wicked kingdoms

reckoning and

beckoning with

tiny hands

at forces

we

cant

understand

 

Justice

with her scales cut

only carries

a sword.

Hanker

flank ranks of lanky wankers in clanging spangled tankers

bang angry at banks of spanking tanglers with be-dazzled wranglers

dance frankly

into manky dank at cantankerous skank banquets with 

stank of wangs

wagging at sagging languid hags passages

daftly plaster 

vast gastric chasms with nasty nad spasms in

mad madames mansions

fathoms of bantam phantom pantomimes on stamps of fragment canvas.

Wrapt Packet

 

Max lacks practice

stacking whacking racquettes

in plastic baskets

cracking rack brackets

and taxing packets

of fat lacking flax crackers

he lapses backwards

snapping lacquered shackles

raises managers hackles

amasses classless rascals

hassels

laughs last at

clap happy vassals

and chalice wrasslers

with half mast

shaft tassels

in glass castles

Sticky

 

His business

pitching thistled

whistling missles

at vivid wickets

crickets finished

for pissed ticket stitchers

and livid pitcher grippers

whispers swiftly dip

and nick knacks

shift

in rucksacks

for kickbacks

Tipple

 

this miss

wistfully whisks bisquick

dripping tidbits

risks illicit business

begins ticking lists

of wicking dickies

and thick tricky slickers

picks up stickers

and snickers

quickly sips stiff liquids

then bickers

with brit wicker pickers

on which liquors quicker

their blistered limbs

twisting

like fitful

brick kicking misfits

Down Size

 

A new guise to surprise

high street wise spy flies

on sky pies from dime jivers

mind divers wipe pipes

with diapers from unripe tigers

kites brighten high wires

while vipers strike like

rhyme bikers

all wise to demise

of prime lives

in time spires
