Oooh, look at me, guys.
I'm a sexy witch, and I
Can make you love me!

Been Caught Stealing

Is something to be proud of.
Kids, you should steal things.

Maxwell's Silver Hammer

Serial killers
Are more fun than you might think.
Some chicks dig them too.


Even rock stars have
Trouble scoring groupies, so
They must pleasure themselves.

I feel a change comin' on

I've posted quite a number of Bob Dylan haikus here, probably more than 10 percent of the ones that I've written. I'm going to try some haikus by different groups. Your suggestions and submissions are welcome!
The rest I will save for what I hope is something that I can turn into a viable work of art.

I'm still thinking about whether to include other writing on this blog. I might just start a new one and leave this for haiku.

Restless Farewell

Nothing is my fault.
Shallow folks made their own beds
Before I showed up.

I Still Miss Someone

He still misses you,
But he's not sure you're sorry
For tossing him out.

I Dreamed I Saw St. Augustine

Augustine frees souls,
But people don't like that, so,
Of course, they kill him.

Treat Her Right

Bob gives you lessons
On keeping girls happy and
Begging for much more.

Joshua Gone Barbados

Joshua says he'll
Back the sugarcane strikers,
But he bails instead.

I'll Remember You

Jesus or dark horse?
Bob might be struggling over it.
Jesus saves? Or punts?

It's All Over Now, Baby Blue (Edited, version 2)

Bob leaves a lover
Who can't face reality.
He takes his carpet.

I'm Not Supposed to Care

Gordon Lightfoot and
Bob will look after you, but
They're not supposed to.

The Ballad of Ira Hayes

Pima Indian
Raises Iwo Jima flag,
Goes home, drinks and dies.

Father of Night

If you pray to God
For good, then accept the bad.
You must pay to pray.

Do Right Unto Me, Baby (Do Unto Others)

The golden rule, babe:
Bob says, use it don't lose it.
Don't touch him, either.

From a Buick 6

Bob's chick is tough.
She'll fuck up lesser homies,
But she protects Bob.


Mozambique sounds nice.
Beaches and fun. Que lindo!
Alas, not quite true.

Northeast Texas Women

Texas is quite large,
And has a corresponding
Mix of cutie pies.

Blind Willie McTell

Deep south, magnolias,
Slaves, plantations, blues singers...
Chicken-fried music.

The Boxer

Bob sings a big hit.
Bridge over troubled vocals.
You won't like his take.

Dancing in the Dark

I sit and mope some.
I could write a book, or we
Could get it on, too.
