Hide and Seek

Hide and Seek

Within the folds of my brain,
thousands of bits of ideas rapidly race
simultaneously in random directions playing
hide and seek from electronic file keepers, whose
job it is to tame concepts long enough to put
them into memory cells so complete ideas
can be expressed by some
medium externally.

The problem is my
body feels it’s time for bed, and I need my sleep.
Instead of counting sheep, I just rest,
hoping my thoughts would
get their act
together and quit
playing games.

A New You

A New You

You can comb your hair,
Brush your teeth and wash
Your body; all well and good,
But to cleanse your soul, you
Need to have more than a
New custom paint job and
a high-gloss wax coat.

End of a Movie

End of a Movie

I’m on my horse, on the run,
got to get to Kansas or Missouri.
Don’t say I was here, ’cause I
got to get there in a hurry.
There’s this man called the law,
and he doesn’t believe I’m
innocent of what I just saw.
Being free can only bring hope
he doesn’t catch up with me
and put me at the end of a rope.
At least you know I’m alive,
but just go back to your plow.
I love you, and need you, but,
Mother, I have to go now.

Lane violation

Lane violation

So, you think you are
Queen of the Road, and
can go wherever you want.
You never can go slow.

But if you stay on your side
of that yellow line,
I’ll stay on mine.
You can go your way,
and, Babe, I’ll be fine.
We don’t need any lane violations
on the Highway of Love.

When we cross the mark,
one of us always gets hurt.
Bodies connect and collide,
and we end up in the dirt.

But if you stay on your side
of that yellow line,
I’ll stay on mine.
You can go your way,
and, Babe, I’ll be fine.
We don’t need any lane violations
on the Highway of Love.

History Lesson

History Lesson

There once was a popular king, not too long ago,
Who was thought to be able to converse with the gods
And was able to tell what the world was really like,
But the words he spoke were often in strange tongues,
Unlike any language in existence, so his closest advisors
Had the uncomfortable duty to interpret and re-interpret
What the popular king really meant to say so that his
Subjects could apply the meanings to their regular lives.
He was worshiped, and could do nothing wrong.  He
Was rich in every way, and gold was his standard from
The toilet he used to the fleet of cars he owned.
His wealth was gleamed from the people he taxed,
Leaving the lower classes believing they were rich
In the ideas he communicated with the Gods,
But the only way he could receive these messages
Was through the use of special royal medicines
Which he was alone allowed to use, by royal decree.
It was easy to see how others could believe,
For he was the King and could do or say no wrong.
He stayed alive too long, for the kingdom fell
Apart, and his people suffered broken hearts;
And those advisors tried to take advantage
Of their position were soon departed,
Until the day the King died, for he was killed
By one of his loyal followers, poor in spirit,
But rich in bullets which came from a gun,
And then the king was done.

WYSIWYG

WYSIWYG

What you see is what you get.
I’m a work in progress; I’m not done yet.
Someday I’ll do something great, I bet.
What you see is what you get.

What you see is what you get.
It’s the only thing I know.
I plant my seeds in the garden
And watch the patch grow.
I work to use the right ways
As I dig the garden’s rows,
But sometimes I change direction
Depending on the way the wind blows.

What you see is what you get.
I’m a work in progress; I’m not done yet.
I’m catching butterflies in my net.
What to see is what you get.

Literally conceived as adults, Ken, Barbie and friends
Have reached into the minds of thousands of children,
And despite being married million of times, the
Famous couples still have no children.  Yet they
Stay the same, with Barbie as a 50-year-old woman.
It must be the plastic surgery L.A. is famous for.
The first material couple continues to be in
Fashion with complimentary outfits and all the
Things needed for the perfect life.

I can see now

I can see now

A distant memory shines from the past, a long time ago.
I should have guessed it wouldn’t last, but now I know
Because after all these years, I can see how I have changed
Or the maybe the world is different, and I have remained
The person I always I have been under the present disguise.

Family Trees

Family Trees

 

From birth,
a life is a series yes’s and no’s,
zeros and ones,
a code of if’s and then’s,
a constant flow chart
of decisions made by others
and a recognized gene pool,
and eventually by that person
which create the roots
of the family tree. This is a
cycle which repeats itself
every other second
of each day in the world
creating  a diverse forest
which must coexist on this
world of limited resources.

Popular Penny

Popular Penny

I bought a second
flip phone for a business
I could call my own.
Soon I got calls, texts,
and messages for a
person named Penny,
but the old phone
now has a new home.
She must be a
popular person judging
from all those who
she has known.
