There was a man who did “play ball”

Aft all the years most still recall

An icon who did make this game

The key to his unending fame.

A humble man of wit and length

So lank and lean and full of strength

A simple man and faithful too

The game seemed to be what he knew.

He gave his all it cost his life

Thank God he chose the proper wife

Tis sad that heroes oft die young

Long fore their praises will be sung !

I hung my heart out on a limb

And prayed someone would reel me in

I searched for love the way one should

And wound up lost in some vast wood.

I tried my hand at show and tell

And that did not go quite so well

I decided right then and there

I’d had enough of grief to spare.

And so I bought myself a book

Turned out that I was this great cook,

Love’s not what it’s cracked up to be

Seems business was my destiny !

I can’t imagine what to think

The world we knew is on the brink

The powers that be are paralyzed

Too many here are traumatized.

We’re in a bind and can’t get out

No matter how we rale or shout

So sad that time’s not on our side

When we have issues to decide.

Let’s run our goals on super fast

And pray that God will help it last

We need peace now, make no mistake

Whate’er we do, win, lose or break !

 

 

 

BOSS OF YOU AND ME ( 2017 ) 2017/02/24

I hear the wind so wild and cold

It shares a chill quite brash and bold

And struts its sound beyond the storm

Oh how I wish I could get warm.

I’d guess the forests need to sleep

While gusty winds do clean and sweep

It is a job of giant length

And needs to work at high pitch strength

For God owns all the powers that be

And is the boss of you and me !

A force now rises in the east

To calm the anger of the beast

The winds of change will power divest

And merit fortune in its quest

The time has come, the hour is near

To charm the crowd and vanquish fear !

This road I’ve walked for oh so long

Has taught me much and made me strong

I have not flinched in spite of pain

Finding more ways to help maintain

Those days that challenge me anew

Questioning now what shall I do ?

I’ve come this far with faith in God

His help has made my path less hard

No matter what new days may bring

I thank my God for everything !

I look around, what do I see

A world debauched in infamy

My heart cries out, Lord help us all

Please save us from old Satan’s call.

The evil that occurs right here

Weighs heavy on eyes, mind and ear

Where is the strength we need to find

The courage to leave sin behind

Desert us not, dear gracious God

The path ahead seems really hard !
