When  you look around  what do you see

Millions  involved  in dishonesty

A  nation in chains  by subterfuge

Victim of  a scam  that is so huge.

How sad that this is where we’ve  wound up

Sipping  tragedy  from  one  cracked cup

We’ll  do our best to escape the goons

Please God  help save us all  from buffoons !

There is one thing I’m searching for

To be some  place I’ve been before

And feel the warmth of your embrace

The  peace of  love upon your face.

It’s too late now there’s no time left

As  I am here,  alone,  bereft

I’m sorry that it could not be

Life  found an  altered destiny !

 

FIRST LOVE IS FOREVER ( 2019 ) 2019/05/17

There is a tale I wish to share

Bout teenaged feelings, love and care

There was a girl of but fifteen

He was a boy of just eighteen

Each Sunday sharing the church pew

Who can decide what each one knew ?

 

What was it they were thinking of

Because quite soon it looked like love

Though young and silly girls may be

Assured were both she cared for he

He was a lad, handsome and tall

In every way, he seemed her all.

 

On Sunday morn, dad passed the plate

She taught a class, they walked home late

Along the Boulevard they’d chat

They walked and talked of this and that

Soon the young man was her best friend

Perhaps with each their lives they’d spend.

 

Now at this time the world was sick

Young men fought wars in battles thick

That was the year her daddy died

When she felt so alone inside

So many issues war creates

Among those most when faith abates.

 

How could they know before that day

The war would filch their love away

Of all events that I have seen

And all the places I have been

Too precious now those days bygone

That their first love was based upon.

 

So sad the pain that war does bring

As all their dreams took flight and wing

Thus never to return that way

Not then or any other day

Too bad this story has no end

No memory nor any friend !

Seems every morning sadness shows

Around the world the bad news flows

The madness strikes it grows and grows

From tippy-top to tiny-toes !

Oh foul device and evil  intent

Of those whose motive to harm was meant

With all of our tears that have been spent

God with purpose our lives reinvent !

 

BEYOND THE DOOR ( 2016 ) 2016/12/01

Now I’ve sailed on many waters wide

And trudged up many a mountainside

I’ve stood my ground for a long, long time

And did my best to preserve our clime.

I lived through those wars now gone away

Like memories of lost yesterday,

For who can know what was done before

As we stand here at God’s final door

I wonder now what we each shall find

Beynond that door as our days unwind ?

 

 

PEARL HARBOR ( 1941 – 2016 ) 2016/11/11

What we forget not to recall

Those days that spelled defeat for all

When planes and bombs did fill the air

And all we’d left was hope and prayer !
