We Are

by A. L. O'Prunty

a composite of all that came before us

collective memory of the ancients

often revealed when least expected

our ancestors blood surges

through ours and

we are the old way

combined with the new ways

still seeking answers:

Why are we here?

that lofty smile

insecurities facade

you wear it so well

~ Words Ring Hollow

by A. L. O'Prunty

amongst the constant chatter

the do this, do that

unsolicated, unwarranted


I’d chew the words

seeking a marrow of wisdom

if any of it

was grounded in reality

Americas Child

by A. L. O'Prunty

I’m Americas child

step into my skin

feel the burning hunger

buried deep within
see me as a gift

the future, that it is me

but I can’t chase my dreams

when I’m scared & so hungry

ma says relief is coming

pa, he says it too

leaders keep on fighting

I’m sure their plates are full…O’Prunty

It’s Monday in America

by A. L. O'Prunty

It’s Monday in America:

a new day dawing

an evil era waning

as we unite

– both, left and right:

agree to disagree

most respectfully

and bridge the divide

with determined stride

though battle scared

as esteemed leaders spared

together, we’ll seam

the American dream…O’Prunty

Sunday Morning Sunrise

by A. L. O'Prunty

The Sunday morning sunrise

Ascending Americas skies

Seems to revive dreams

Dreams, that nearly died…

And though the fights not over

And though the road is long

This Sunday morning sunrise

Reminds us to stay strong…O’Prunty

In Honor of President Elect Joe Biden and VP Kamala Harris

On Truth

by A. L. O'Prunty

when truth is lacking justice fails

regardless the atempt of various veils

honor, integrity play no part

within the stained, tainted heart

so carefully speak -let truth prevail

uncover the lies -rent the veil…O’Prunty 9/18/2020

Perils of Pretense

by A. L. O'Prunty

I grew tired of the mundane

The everyday insane:

As they stand

Upon podiums of pretense

Pontificating falsehoods

Lining lying lips…O’Prunty

He wrote a poem about a snake

I’ll write one about a rake

Who robbed America blind…

Caused devastation to humankind

And I’ll title it accordingly:

The Snake of Immorality…O’Prunty

Hand in Hand

by A. L. O'Prunty

we walked as if unaware

through youthful days

without a care

singing songs of sunshine

and daisy days

of are you mine?

hip-high in wheat-top sways

we walked through our youthful days

taken out of context

nouns, pronouns

falling on deaf ears.

Just A Song

What She Loved…

by A. L. O'Prunty

~ What She Loved

Was the purity in the lily

Graceful petals

Reaching heaven bound

As porcelain arms in praise

And the twisting winding roses

Traveling the trellis

Scaling the distance

Between roo

t and also heaven bound

Permeating her world,

Her waters seeping sensual oils

Then the wildness of the tiger lily

Growing wild and free

Surviving without tending

The tender touch

of the gardeners hands

Not required,

still exotic the pulsating petals

And the bleeding hearts

Delicate, dainty

drops of colors fused

And the reality represented in the name;

All hearts bleed,

broken by love lacking


fragile petals drop as tears falling

What she loved was beauty

Beauty, in all forms, fashions

And on bended knee

She, the gardener

Singing her songs of praise

In her own garden of delights

The Broken In Me

by A. L. O'Prunty

I’ll comfort you.

when times get rough

you’ve had enough

& no longer feel tough

just feel like giving up

I’ll comfort you.

when tears of despair fall

I will catch them all

toss them to the rain

wash away the pain.

then you’ll come to realize

this, this, is where love resides.

light came dancing through the trees

on twigs, branches, vibrant leaves

as day dawned delightfully:

just me, my garden,

and loose-leaf tea…O’Prunty 6/21/2020

there once was a man in a bunker

who said, “I need to hunker”

he turned round and round

like an old basset hound

Denial…delay…deception…trumps response to Covid19 Pandemic

Over 107,000 dead.

Insensitive…Inept…Inarticulate…trumps response to George Floyd

Devoid of empathy, compassion.

Brutality…Brandishing… Bayonets…trumps response to Protests

“Battelspace” war cry on peaceful protesters.

Defiling one of God’s House for… Now wait for it……………………………

“The Most sacrilegious photo-op in American History”…trumps response to jealousy (Biden)

Just a friendly reminder: “There were NO reports of ‘looting’ until AFTER trump tweeted:

“When the looting starts the shooting starts”…a racial slur from 1968.

FACT: American Generals Are Fed Up With trumps Racists BullShit

The Revered General Mattis made that PERFECTLY Clear!

FACT:  Esper? “I am against the Insurrection Act at this ‘time’”…

Americans are on edge wondering if he will retain Honor and Integrity for the United States Military or be pulled into the dictator wanna be’s attempt to “Dominate” the American people.

A World on Pause

by A. L. O'Prunty

As Covid19 ravishes country after country

Death hangs heavy in the air…

Here, in America, 100,000 souls seemingly sacrficed

To the “Political Pollution”, the “Seeding Swamp”

That never seems to stop, nor pause.

Americans Have Sacrificed So Much For What?

by A. L. O'Prunty

The voices of the dead can not cry

so we cry for them

we cry for answers, justice, equality

and we cry for accountability.
