Links

A link to the past
Can be put in a few words.
I know you think that
This thought is absurd,
But look at the catch phrases
That defy the tests of time –
D-Day, Iwo Jima, Hiroshima,
38th Parallel, Ho Chi Min and
Rosebud – just to name a few,
and all those important days,
like 9-11. Where were you?
These words evoke images that
Are burned into our memories.
When others get so old that
Just getting around is a chore,
Servicemen will sweat, and never
Forget being a veteran of war.
As the world goes round, it’s
Only a few words which stop
Us in our beaten paths, and
They cause us to think, however
Briefly, about the past,
And the way we will act
Or react in the future.

Soldiers

Veterans day

Soldiers

Soldiers don’t make war;
They just fight in them,
And when the last bullet flies,
They hope it’s the end.
When they stop to count the costs,
Soldiers know what they’ve lost.
Some are hurt with lost limbs
And some paid the ultimate price –
Lives lost are the biggest sacrifice.
Each of them has their own story,
And say they don’t fight for the glory.
They fight for freedom’s defense,
And to protect their fellow friends.
When peace does make its round,
Shouts of joy will sound from
All the nations in the world.

Follow Me

 

People need to be respected like people,
and, with their faults, they need to be free.
Each one needs to grow into who they can be.
If you agree with all this, then follow me.
I’m not calling for a radical revolution, but
I’m just advocating an alternative solution.
Each one of us has a unique identification,
and people need to be respected like people.
If you agree with all this, then follow me.

Leave Me to Love Me

Leave Me to Love Me

 

You told me you had to leave me to love me,
And at the time I didn’t really understand.
We had a good thing going together, and
You were my woman and I was your man.
You said you needed to go away, when I
All I could do was to beg you to stay.

I see now that you weren’t ready to
Love me the way I wanted to love you.
Then I said I would wait forever, and
My friends told me I was being a fool.
Now you are here, and you are back
Letting me hold you in my lonely arms.
You have changed in some ways, but
You have not lost your original charm.

You told me you had to leave me to love me,
And at the time I didn’t really understand.
We had a good thing going together, and
You were my woman and I was your man.
You said you needed to go away, when I
All I could do was to beg you to stay.

I wonder if you were afraid of your love.
You had take some time to find yourself
Before you could come back to me.
You have had other lovers in your
Heart. That is easy to see.
But your past doesn’t matter now,
And you have come back to stay.
I’m sure it will always be this way.

You told me you had to leave me to love me,
And at the time I didn’t really understand.
We had a good thing going together, and
You were my woman and I was your man.
You said you needed to go away, when I
All I could do was to beg you to stay.

War

War

Religion promotes it.
Soldiers fight in it.
Countries defend it.
Historians analyze it.
Technology benefits from it.

Morticians profit by it.
Old men try to forget it.
Politicians argue about it.
Families change from it.
Soldiers wish it was over.

Cornfusing economics

Cornfusing economics

A farmer uses a combine to harvest corn in central Indiana. This year’s crop is expected to be larger than in years past due to ideal growing conditions this season and the extra seed sown to insure a good group has also produced unexpected higher yields per acre. This would seem like a good thing, but with static or slightly decreased demand, prices per acre for Indiana corn are expected to plummet. This, with the increased production costs in seed, and equipment expenses for higher yields, shortens the real or net profit per acre for farmers to the point where they may lose money or at best, make a few cents per acre. Ain’t that cornfusing.

Construction Memo

Construction Memo

Do not attempt to straighten out any
bent nails used with projects under
construction.  Even though we are a
not-for-profit agency and attempts to
save money in most situations is sincerely
appreciated, it is of no use to attempt
to straighten out any bent nails, new  or
old,  since they will never be restored to
their original condition despite any
amount of force applied to the metal.
They will always bend at their weakest
point, the place at which they were first
bent, rendering them useless to us.
We have funds to purchase enough nails,
if they are used to constructions standards
and building codes, for our human projects.
