I’ve often wondered why it’s so

That sadness follows where we go

And life is never thought complete

Without these stories of defeat

Or why we rally to the cause

Of infidels and unjust wars

And so the cycle carries on

When will all wars cease and be gone ?

Now I have trudged this rocky path

With angry crowds so full of wrath

I really don’t know what to think

Seems sanity is on the brink

There’s not much left to make great sense

The climate has become intense.

Participants are so inclined

Pretending to be dumb and blind

But stop before one does the deed

The rule in hand all must concede

The Lord demands that he alone

Who sinless be, cast the first stone !

 

 

 

THE CLARION’S CALL ( 2017 ) 2017/05/31

We shall not run out of values at stake

That is an action that we will not take

For the facts are what this is all about

Either spoken gently or with a shout,

Only time can tell as each day rolls on

There is this thought that we depend upon.

When the winter’s young and the cold is new

We own the courage to make this come true

That as we age and experience mounts

There is the moment when true wisdom counts.

You may do your best making fools of all,

But who will stand at last clarion’s call ?

 

 

 

SAD VALENTINE ( 2017 ) 2017/02/15

So long ago and quite faraway

In the world that was then, not today

There lived a priest they called Valentine

He married couples most of the time.

But Claudius, great emperor he

Needed all young men for his army

Thus marriage was a forbidden joy

For many a Roman girl or boy.

Well Valentine refused to abate

And so he suffered that triple fate

Torture, stoning, beheading also

This was the way that he had to go

Oh sad for him twas too long ago

Who knew he’d become our great hero ?

 

 

 

 

 

 

IF I WERE AN ELEPHANT ( 2015 ) 2015/06/27

I wish I were an elephant

With rugged trunk so long and thick

T’would be my speaking instrument

The trumpet sounds both loud and quick.

I grunt and growl and rumble too

Traveling with the herd for miles

My hooves send messages to you

While trunks curve down for friendly smiles.

I’m told that I am very smart

My memory so ever long

Seems I’ve an extra loving heart

Among all beasts I’m the most strong.

Now I’ve been here since mammoth days

And that is like forever time

By now you should respect my ways

And help me to survive decline !
