While  Congress  prances all around

Our  troops lay  dying on the ground

But  little care do  they eschew

That  comforts any  other view

There  is a God  we must  believe

Who  soon our honor  will retrieve  !

 

PLEASE PASS THIS ON.

 

A FATHER’S LOVE ( 2019 ) 2019/11/26

Once was a man  that I had known

When  I was young and not full grown

Long time ago  and far away

Another  life,  another  way.

 

He was a man  of honest pride

Direct  and sweet,  sincere  inside

I  miss him still  and ever will

He holds that place  none else can fill.

 

And  if I live one  hundred years

Or have to face one  thousand fears

There  is no one  I’ll ever meet

Who  shall my father’s  love unseat  !

This man reviled by all the press

Who came on board to fix the mess

His name will live in history

He saved this nation  for the free

And time alone shall tell the tale

So many stories to regale

Have faith that in the end we’ll see

His name will mark our victory !

How I’d like to think we’re all the same

That we all possess the selfsame aim

That our instincts tell us what’s correct

And the principles we must expect,

That we live our lives in manner strong

In a place in which respect belongs,

That we honor truth and liberty

In a world wherein all men are free !

The lonesome whistle of the train

Keeps singing to my tired brain

The trip is long and nears its end

I’m ever weary, oh my friend

And what if we should never die

How could we then embrace goodbye ?

 

TRUST IS A VIRTUE (2019) 2019/03/14

When I was but a little child 

And life was newer, sweeter, mild 

My mother taught me many things 

About the joy that kindness brings 

And why respect’s a two way street 

When often strangers chance to meet 

The earth is precious needing care 

With trust the virtue all must share ! 

 

“IF I BE ALIVE” ( 2019 ) 2019/02/28

There was a man that I used to know

He was my gardener long ago

A man of honor and good intent

Who said exactly just what he meant.

True, I knew he was a man of God

And back in those days that was not odd

He went about his work with great ease

His goal in life was to help and please.

A kindly man full of deep respect

Not an inch of ground did he neglect

His parting words I can still recall

They never changed, no not once at all.

He taught me a lesson that does survive

” See you tomorrow, if I be alive ” !

 

THANK YOU, JOHN ATANASIO !
