AT THE VETERANS DAY PARADE by Steve Savage "King of the Beasts"


“Oh excuse me sir, I really hope you don’t mind;
I saw you watching the Parade and you seemed so kind.
You see, I’m a Disabled Vet who served in Iraq;
And the benefits they promised are being held back.
The Veterans Administration, the one who dispenses,
Refuses to acknowledge my Traumatized Senses.
My wife and I are now out of our home;
And with no place to sleep, it’s the streets we must roam.
We lost the security of our home’s roof,
Because the VA won’t pay without physical proof.
So please kind sir, if you could find it in your heart,
Do you have some spare change with which you can part?”
“Have you no Patriotism - you and your bothersome Hag?
Can’t you see I’m busy waving the Flag?
Go find some park bench where you can sit.
I’ve got to cheer the Marchers: Hip, Hip, O’Crit!”

"THE WORLD ILLUSION" through Steve Savage "King of the Beasts"


God and I alone in space,
And nobody else in view.
“And where are the people, O Lord," I said,
“With the earth beneath and sky overhead,
“And the dead that I once knew?”


“That was a dream,”
God smiled and said.
“A dream that was never true.
“There are no people, living or dead,
“No earth beneath, and no sky overhead,
“There are only Myself and You.”


“And why do I have no fear,” I said,
“Meeting You here this way?
“For I have sinned I know full well;
“And is there Heaven and also Hell?
“And is this the Judgment Day?”


“Those are dreams again,” the Great God said.
“Dreams that have ceased to be.
“Fear and sin are the product of mind,
“And you are a ghost that has never been;
“For there is nothing at all but ME.”
