Ken and Barbie

Ken and Barbie

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

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.

Valerie

lsccrest

A poem by Brother C.J. Chatham III.   They sound like lyrics to a 70’s love song.

Valerie

Valerie, oh Valerie,
I get a funny feeling inside
When I look at you and
Then you look back at me.

Valerie, oh Valerie,
I’m not sure why, but from
My point of view, there is
More than a pretty face to see.

Valerie, oh Valerie,
I’d like to spend time with you,
And get to know you better
To test our compatibility.

Valerie, oh Valerie,
I know we have a future,
And together we can be better
Than alone.  Set my love free.

Valerie, oh Valerie.

The Real Thing

Editor’s Note: This poem was written on the day the oldest niece from one of my sisters accepted a marriage proposal from the man when had been dating for five years.  My first thought was the phrase,  the real thing…

The Real Thing

The real thing…. (echo)
The real thing… (echo)
The real thing… (echo)

If you really want to know,
I want to have a love that shows,
not a love you need to hide,
or a love that you keep inside.
I guess I want the real thing,
the kind of love that makes you sing
even when it pours down rain,
or when your’re feeling any pain.
I guess I want the real thing.

If you really want to know,
I want to have a love that grows,
not a loves that remains the same
or a love played with silly games.
I guess I want the real thing,
the kind of love that deserves a ring,
one that will last the rest of life,
one that involves you as my wife.
I guess I want the real thing.

(break strain)
The real thing is something I can
see, taste, hear, smell and touch.
The real thing is something I know
I need to have you so very much.
The real thing is having people
That belong part of your family.
The real thing is being loved
With the comforts of security.
The real thing…. (echo)
The real thing… (echo)
The real thing… (echo)

If you really want to know,
I want to have a love that shows,
not a love you need to hide,
or a love that you keep inside.
I guess I want the real thing,
the kind of love that makes you sing
even when it pours down rain,
or when you’re feeling any pain.
I guess I want the real thing.

The big deal

The big deal

Do you want to go for the big deal
or want to keep what you got?
You didn’t start with much, so
are you going to give it a shot?

There’s a chance you could win it all,
but also realize there is a cost.
You better make up your mind soon,
or the time to decide will be lost.

In life, second chances are few,
though they are often sought.
Seconds are ticking away now.
Will your decision be right or not?

Playing the Game

 Playing the Game

You look in the mirror and start to cry,
And the more you look, you wonder why.
The problem lies in the way you like to see,
And you live your life in a fake fantasy.
Your friends and boss gave you clues,
But you haven’t yet got the big news.
Dry your tears and look out a window
To get a view of the cold, real show.
Your knight in shining armor has a flaw.
One who loves you has been by all along.
Get past your problems with some change
And you will get back playing the game.

Da grill is gone

Da grill is gone

Da grill is gone, oh, da grill is gone
It’s not hea no mo, da grill is gone.
We has ourselves some barbeques,
Eat some chicken and drink some beers,
An then the boys played the blues,
But now, da grill is gone.

Da grill is gone, oh, da grill is gone
It’s not hea no mo, da grill is gone.
We gots the coals to glow red hot.
People came smiles on their faces,
A sweet sauce covered da food,
A secret recipe I tell you not.
But now, da grill is gone.

Some ole thief took it from the back yard.
The family’s takenit pretty dern hard.
Our friends don’t come to visit no mo.
They say git a new one from the stor,
But I made the last one from scratch,
And it built like the Titanic, to last.
Da grill is gone, oh, da grill is gone
It’s not hea no mo, da grill is gone.

Wings of Revolution

Wings of Revolution

 

It has been calculated the air disturbance
from the movement of a Monarch butterfly’s
wings on one side of the world could theoretically
cause a cyclone on the opposite side of the world.
They call this the Butterfly Effect.
If one good deed is done to an stranger one time
and one place, then the wings of revolution could
spread exponentially to change another people’s
lives  in other countries.  There are millions of
Monarch butterflies, and there should be a billion
smiles started with a few gifts of time and compassion.
