Easter, of Sorts

The government can't fix
Jacobson, 37, an ophthalmologist,
his wife, Amy, 35, and their children.

Nearby, the resurrection of Van Morrison;
a cemetery about half a mile short.
Mired in, already the deepest in.

Three more nights --
then Los Angeles.
The band, the orchestra.

-- Sherre Vernon

A Giant Defended

On boil Portsmouth trees for syrup Opera to,
On points snake column for Eiffel Island to.

Are still that weighing forward.
Are hay that clogging sharply,

Switching average out warmth pipeline his of sap the cold.
On hint Cardiff Giant for troubled landmarks to,
Are question that sugaring much.

Portrait by England

My patience is thin.
England lost two wickets,
The damage is irreparable.

Where’s my exquisite oil painting?
The Chiefs are meeting,
Sir Walter Raleigh is convinced

Kevin Pietersen said
The debonair investors
Were Scottish Widows.

Blamed The President

no one has a chance to panic
outside his house and the country's borders
nobody knows who is in charge

a rabbit and a rat
who are already worried
offered a few clues

everything they hate
will slowly transfer into something
nobody knows what

Apology By Salesmanship

Storytelling and gently persuasive salesmanship died Saturday
Surrounded by family at a Phoenix hospital
Meaning many monks failed to follow Buddhist tenets

Broadcasts were consistently ranked first among network shows
Bishop Bernard, head of St. Pius, was honest
Consistently the title of Dalai Lama was not granted

To free oneself from vulgarity, to study intensively, is a step
He hoped the bishop would now stay silent
It is a first request for forgiveness: Sutras, Vinaya and Sastra.

-- Lauren Witts
