Tippler – The Human Anvil


I have far less words
Far lesser time
There is a sun for me to swallow
Without a whiff of wine
Will the wild man keep, open his shop
Till I find some coin
For a single drop
This sober world is not for me
All colored one way
So none may see
The boiling rainbow in someone’s yard
Or the aces aligned in another’s card
Those worry lines on a toddler’s face
And the moral codes we wear as brace
Cause it will break the hives
It will free the bees
Who shall hum that honey, truly
Taste like grease
One that winds your watch
One that grinds your wheel
One that drives you on
One that holds you still
For this world is full of paradox
You buy makeup as cure for chickenpox
And put band-aid upon a broken heart
If willing to trade the spare parts
So all in all
This place is sick
Filled with filth as if the bladder’s weak
And none clever enough to make it stop
Nor kind to lend me for a single drop.

I am a Social Worker by day and an artist/writer by night. I use the written word in an attempt to make sense of the secret worlds and dysfunctional dynamics that lurk beneath the facades of our daily interactions. I am not sure how my writing styles are characterized, nor am I overly concerned about it. I am immensely enthusiastic about music and often connect better with songs than I do people. I also have an intense appreciation for quality wines and whiskies, frequently consuming them in excess. I like things that smell good and struggle to manage the symptoms of a life-long relationship with depression. So, why "grumpygorman"? Spend some time here and find out...
