i’m the lion king

of haiku-na-ma-tata

hear my mighty roarrr!

m. a. dennis

when your name is john

reading letters from your wife

is very stressful


roach infested homes

are one place you shouldn’t be

eating raisin bran


dogs are man’s best friend

except for in this one place:

a civil rights march


take one of my poems

place it between your legs and

make me eat my words


do pedophile priests

use holy water to wash

off their penises?


king solomon did

“whose baby is it?” thing first

not maury povich


a judgement free zone

if only the world could be

a planet fitness


oreo cookie

an interracial couple

no one objects to


forget past mistakes

focus on present moment:

plate of jerk chicken
