A new Poem, from 2007

I never Posted ALL of my poems here, because I was told it was the equivalent of publishing them.

Here's a really important one, I just found...

This was (I think) the starting point of when I officially put together the "credo" about why we need a second new deal...

Start a Revolution, (to the tune of the Beatles -- Revolution)

Start a Revolution (to the tune of the Beatles' Revolution)
You say you want a revolution? Well, you know,
We just need to change OUR world.

It's time for a health care solution
for all of us here, no matter who you are...

If you say no Government Program
is the Amerikan way
Then that just shows you're out of touch
Then you're just out of touch with society
And you don't know why society hurts.

Talk about a new solution, well start it low,
we need our kids taught how to grow.
Teachers as part of the solution, and then you know,
day care for all helps them grow.

A new plan to help our country
three years of time
it will help rebuild our country
time spent to grow and go.

This time of learning and teaching
will rebuild our destroyed country.
It will help and employ
and teach everyone.

Now you know we need a living wage
the Minimum's just way too small
And quit your griping it's too much to pay
Inflation hurts us all.

We need a new 100 day plan
just like FDR's new deal
It's one easy at once shock,
It's designed to help us out of our problems
and educate us all!

June 19th, 2008 : Peace

Someone gave me this line.

its better then it was;not better then it could be.

I gave them the following poem back.


Gettin' better then it was;
It's always time to improve.

Life sucks and then you die
But really, that's just a lie.

We's always waiting for the time.
But time, be drivin' away.

(chorus) its better then it was
not better then it could be.
but smiles are just the key
we do, and then, we be.

They say that talkin's overrated
I'll tell you it's the only way.

Our mind's an amazing tool
Too complex to explain.

(chorus) its better then it was
not better then it could be.
but smiles are just the key
we do, and then, we be.

Without an ear to help you share
cares cause too much sighing.

But if you dare, and open up
your body, responds and 'laxes.

(chorus) its better then it was
not better then it could be.
but smiles are just the key
we do, and then, we be.

It's up to us to intervene
relax and let it be.

'else the grave will come
and there you'll be.

not better then it could be.
no, not better then it will be.

A Sonnet for my 50th Birthday (by me)

Fifty Years: A sonnet

{Written at 2AM, after a REAL surprise party for me!}

Thoughts on my mind, Tis my dime.
Fifty Years goes way too fast.
Blink, then (too many) way-points have passed.
Was really a might fine time.

Can't pretend, not a mime!
Thoughts inside? I've been gassed.
But really, Cheryl's now unsurpassed.
And Jessica was just sublime.

Now's time to act my age?
Not boxed, yet at my max?
No, Still not in a cage!
No more doth I swing my axe.
Have I now, No more rage!
With meds, can now relax.

Jimmy CarteR: Hate the man, love the politics?


Jimmy Carter, President, United States, Retired, agrees with me that George BUSH, and ESPECIALLY VP Dick Cheney are TORTURERS.

See? the Associated Press says so, so it IS so...

Carter said the interrogation methods cited by the Times, including "head-slapping, simulated drowning and frigid temperatures," constitute torture "if you use the international norms of torture as has always been honored certainly in the last 60 years since the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was promulgated.

Cheney has been "a disaster for our country. I think he's been overly persuasive on President George Bush."

AMEN Brother Jimmy. Even if you did get the Mid-East policy Back-Asswards!

THE Haiku:

Impeach Cheney; Pelosi Pardons; Democracy Restored

Please!! (pass it on!)

Sat 07-Jul-07: Fare thee Well

Fare Thee Well

And now, the time has come
For me to say, fare thee well.

Because, it's time for you
to leave our little nest now.

But first, I must restate
That common thread, I always tell you

My love, you'll always have
No matter what, no matter how

You decide to treat me
For this, I say; I'll always love you.

You may, think this false; but of this I assure you
No matter what, no matter when

I'm very proud of you.

Thu 01-Jun-07: Pure Political Theatre

Bush used these words
To insult the country
He insists on supporting thieves and liars.

Thieves and liars who were appointed by HIM.
Donald Rumsfeld, Secretary of Defense no more
Paul Bremer, chief architect of the Iraq War fiasco
Paul Wolfowitz, Chief of World Bank, No more!

Time for Alberto Gonsalves to resign.

Wed 17-May-07: Sadness, Alone

Sadness falls, close to home.
My hands sigh, as they type this tome.
Inwards I cry at my plight
I wannna run far into the night
Because I just feel so all alone.

Mon 16-May-07: Bad Vibes

Wonderful turns to ashes
Seeing your offspring return
Thrilled to see them again.

Another semester is over.
They return from dorm rooms much older
Yet old habits die hard, and make others pale.

Happy moods turn snippy again,
When trying friendly faces wear thin
And out comes venom instead.

Two does it take to dance a tango
But one a conversation can mangle
Just watch what you say.

Or else you just may
Not be there
To catch the angle.

Tue 15-May-07: Paul Bremmer A Limerick (OEDILF)

Paul Bremmer: Limerick #16(OEDILF)

Paul Bremmer a Neo-con in DC,
Whose war script was done to a Tee.
The plans caused great strife
And a huge loss of life.
Yet a presidential medal has he.

Here is the link to the ACCEPTED/Published version in the
Omnificent English Dictionany in Limerick form (OEDILF)

Bremer, L. Paul by markbnj

Paul Bremer, a Neo-Con guy,

Said "War-making is easy as pie!"

His plans caused great strife,

And a huge loss of life —

And a medal from Bush crowns the lie.

L. Paul Bremer, before becoming the chief administrator of the Interim Governing Authority, in Iraq, helped to write the major part of the US invasion plan of Iraq, giving him the dubious distinction of both causing the war, and causing great problems with the aftermath of the war in Iraq.

Mr. Bremer was awarded the Presidential Medal of Honor for his work.

Mon 14-May-07: UnderEmployed

It's no longer called un-employment
Now-a-days, it's simply being under-employed.

When Corporate America downsizes
They don't lay you off, they simply right-size you.

Graduating College? Welcome to your first Job.
Yes Sir, would you like fries with that ?

Our Economy no longer produces things
It simply cooks, and does services.

Sun 13-May-07: Birthday Wishes (OEDLIF)

Birthday Wishes (OEDLIF)

I've got a birthday coming up soon
My cake I will eat with a spoon
Hands make it tasted really great
Which my mother must hate
So I might just end up in my room.

Sat 12-May-07: Brittany

An ode to Brittany;
Very brief; just like her outfits.
Is it just me, or does she look better
With all of her locks, simply shorn?
