See You Down The Road

13 11 2016

So Long Marianne
Chances are I won’t see you here again
It comes to this time
I hope this message will reach you before the end
Our bodies are falling apart
And the reason to live is getting old
We’ve seen so many things
There’s nothing left now to be told
Goodbye old friend
Endless Love
See you down the road

When we were almost young
Standing deep in the lilac park
You knew more about that
As you saw the light thru the dark
Just want to wish you a good journey
Until you face the next threshold
I hope this letter finds you
With a piece of mind in gold
Goodbye old friend
Endless Love
See you down the road

I think I will follow soon
Know that I am so close behind you
If you stretch out your hand
I think you can reach my too
Your beauty and your wisdom
I’ve always loved and behold
I don’t need to say anymore
Cause the memories still unfold
Goodbye old friend
Endless Love
See you down the road

There’s a new trend with the millennials 
Sending out text and tweets with symbols 
Like cave dwellings found on prehistoric caves
Digital hieroglyphics is the latest craze

First was a fad and people were wary
But now included in dictionaries
People so possessed by a simple click
There’s a version of Moby Dick called Emoji Dick

Started on Japanese mobile phones
A pictograph by NTT DoCoMo
Sharing emotions with symbolic pics
A shortcut to save on data bandwidth 

Rudimentary signs to express without words
“E” means image and ” Mojo” character
When Google teamed with KDDI AU
That paved the way for the smiling poop

So many images to fit your need
A smorgasbord of everything
Found on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram 
It’s taken over the digital land

A language all it’s own on a stroke of a key
A cartoon alphabet from A to Z
I try to embrace it but I feel so dumb
Damn you small keyboard and my big ass thumbs

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

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

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
