Middle of this Life

11 07 2016

Petty words, torn apart
Sifting thru broken hearts
Hard to find, fade on me
You don’t know what I see

I feel like a poor boy far from home
So tired of being tired by the side of the road
It’s all I can do to survive the night
In the middle of this life
In the middle of this life

Flowers wild leave no trace
Crawling back, out of place
We both got, what we gave
Secrets kept past mistakes

I feel like a poor boy far from home
So tired of being tired by the side of the road
It’s all I can do to survive the night
In the middle of this life
In the middle of this life

Run away, time to time
Where I go, in my mind
Not afraid, to be king
Stay with me, spread your wings

I feel like a poor boy far from home
So tired of being tired by the side of the road
It’s all I can do to survive the night
In the middle of this life
In the middle of this life
In the middle of this life
In the middle of this life





Message Me on Facebook

22 06 2016

Message in a Bottle (The Police)

Just one more birthday and I am getting old-old
Another day away, from always eating jello
Instead this year than generic good cheer
Rescue me from the world of Facebook bizarr-o

Don’t send a BS birthday reply
Don’t send a BS post-it here’s why
I hope that someone heeds me
I hope that someone reads me
I hope that my friends speed me
A message here on Facebook yeah
Message me on Facebook

A year has passed since been notified
As a new one fills the screen
Instead of the usual placid greetings
Drop me a line and say what you really mean

Don’t send a BS birthday reply
Don’t send a BS post-it here’s why
I hope that someone heeds me
I hope that someone reads me
I hope that my friends speed me
A message here on Facebook yeah
Message me on Facebook

Woke up this morning, don’t believe what I saw
Hundred of messages on my Facebook wall
Seems that my request to reach out to my friends
Has put my faith in social media once again

Don’t send a BS birthday reply
Don’t send a BS post-it here’s why
I hope that someone heeds me
I hope that someone reads me
I hope that my friends speed me
A message here on Facebook yeah
Message me on Facebook

Don’t send the same old BS
Make my day, send a message
Don’t timeline like all the rest
Make my day, send a message
Not Hallmark but just as best
Make my day, send a message
All I ask to pass the test
Make my day, send a message
Not a pain like the dentist
Make my day, send a message
You’ll feel good there’s no contest
Make my day, send a message
Running out of rhymes for s
Make my day, send a message
I’ll stop now since you protest
Just make my day with a message





So Hard To Find

14 06 2016

Standing in the shadow
Looking for love
Give me one more time
That’s what I’m only guilty of
Ain’t no stranger
Nothing at all
Need you so bad I could fall
Slide it slow and easy
Cause it’s so hard to find

Break my heart again
In the shadow of the blues
Lay it down the line
Gonna cry no more for you
Now here I go
To set you free
A soldier in the heart’s city
All I want is all I need
But it’s so hard to find

A heart that wrestles
With too many tears
Is a fool for loving
Willing and ready to appear
My double dealing lady
Just take your life from mine
So easy to regret
Yet still so hard to find

The white snake embarks
Willin the saints and sinners
Sweet talking rhythm and rhymes
Casting out would be winners
Mistreated fool
Turn away the night
Sweet Lady Luck treat me right
Anything in the name of love
Makes it so hard to find

The fortune sailing ships
On course to judgement day
Guided by the rains that blind
Stealing the light away
Easier said
Forevermore
Deep purple clouds embrace the shores
Once easy to erase
Is now so hard to find





Concern for Gender

Concern for Gender
Concern for Gender

North Carolina has some issues
With laws they pass and choose
Telling people where to go
With number one and two

It’s all so crazy
Concern for Gender, your sex unknown
Where to tinkle, use which throne

It’s such a quarrel, a gender spat
Just mark the door already so
I can go in and crap

So much ado about nothing
One’s plumbing don’t matter you see
As long as you leave the place
Clean enough for me to pee

It’s all so crazy
Concern for Gender, your sex unknown
Where to tinkle, use which throne

Next time when I travel in the South
Not worried who’s dropping stool
Just want a stall that doesn’t smell
With toilet paper full

Concern for Gender

When I’m in Depends

29 03 2016

When I get older with hair of gray
In my coming years
Will you put up with all my senior traits
Of bladder issues and bathroom breaks
If I’m still moving getting around
Chatting with dear friends
Will you sit near me, if sounds emanate near me
When I’m in Depends

You’ll be older too
And if your just like me
We could talk and toot

I could be handy out on a walk
Strolling on and on
Never having to stop for a restroom break
Cause I have an onboard porta John
Early bird specials and bargain rates
Saving dollars and cents
But will you sit near me, if sounds emanate near me
When I’m in Depends

Every summer night we could sit and relax in our backyard hot tub
If that’s OK dear
And a special note
In Depends I’ll never drown
I just bob and float

Don’t send me letter, or drop me a line
Come by and say hello
Enjoy each other’s company from dusk to dawn
On the front porch yelling “Hey kids, get off my lawn”
Let’s all enjoy life, while we are here
Never knowing when it ends
Will you sit near me, if sounds emanate near
When I’m in Depends

Bicycle Race ( Queen )

Bifocals Bifocals Bifocals
I need to wear my bifocals bifocals bifocals
I need to wear my bifocals
I need to wear my specks
I need to wear my bifocals
I need to wear them with regrets

I was young now I’m old 
Flashes hot, running cold
Belly pot I say hey man
Slim was never my scene
And I don’t like spandex

You say Ben I say Gay
You say hair now it’s gray
You say cheese wasn’t me
I don’t believe I got this age
The morning paper a blurry page
All I wanna find is

Bifocals Bifocals Bifocals
I need to wear my bifocals bifocals bifocals
I need to wear my bifocals
I need to wear my specks
I need to wear my bifocals
I need to wear them with regrets

Goodbye to being young that’s for sure
So much for looking good in your golden days
As you take a number at LensCrafters 
Coupons out price match go

Bifocals bifocals bifocals
I need to wear my bifocals bifocals bifocals bifocals
I need my bifocal lens

You say Coke I say diet
You say sex that’s a riot
Hot dog I say cool it man
Why do you think menopause has a pause in it

You say smile I say can’t
A bad day, my implants
A short walk my bones hurt
Funny back when we were young
That growing up would be so fun 
Can’t see my future without my

Bifocals Bifocals Bifocals
I need to wear my bifocals bifocals bifocals
I need to wear my bifocals
I need to wear my specks
I need to wear my bifocals
I need to wear them with regrets





Anger in America

19 03 2016

Unsettling times
A heavy cross of burden
So many turmoil signs
Distant storm clouds brewing
Splintered reflections
Long forgotten sins
Fuels the culmination
Descent to the end

Anger in the streets
Anger at police
Anger is the role
Anger in control
Anger undefined
Anger yours and mine
Anger in America
Anger in America

Impulsive inclusions
Decomposition of life
Us vs Them exclusions
Turbulence bringing strife
What is happening?
What does it all mean?
Are questions defining?
Answers we’re afraid to see

Anger in the streets
Anger at police
Anger is the role
Anger in control
Anger undefined
Anger yours and mine
Anger in America
Anger in America

Discouraged by progress
If this where it leads
Democracy at best
A cataclysmic need
Sometimes I wonder
Where allegiance lies
False pretenses thunder
As the USA cries

Anger in the streets
Anger at police
Anger is the role
Anger in control
Anger undefined
Anger yours and mine
Anger in America
Anger in America
Anger in America
Anger in America
