Deal 1139: Couplets

Beware unknown unknowns, because they are
lurking unseen unheard unfelt yet there
Sunlight illuminating the shadows
repeatedly sustained will help them go
what evil lurks in the hearts of men?
the shadow knows, tells all, again, again.
Fear not, be not yellow, nor fowl, chicken
awareness now fends off chance of victim
as a window into darkest corners
reveals lurking dangers, evil doers.

Deal 966: Blank verse fragment

being fluffy and cuddly as they are
many are surprised that they are a bear
not stuffed or toys but live with tooth and claw
protecting kids from monsters in the clo-
set or underneath the bed where shadows
lurk and lie in wait for victim’s light doze
alarms turn to music of the spheres
given time for music to soothe the beast

Deal 515: Ebon couplets

Raven, intelligent oft quoted bird,
ebon feathered always gets the last word.

Phoenix-like rebirth inevitable,
undying Raven trickster of fable.

His nose knows no sensitive smells today
Raven hunts legends o’er food any day.

Targeting impure motives leaves no time
for Raven to find true love or fight crime.

He has no use for socks on bare talons
Raven needs his toes free, to drink gallons.

Raven, intelligent oft quoted bird,
ebon feathered always gets the last word.
