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?

Fri 11-May-07: Singlehood


The Grass is always greener
On the other guy's lawn
Parents long to be childless
When their brats are acting up.

Childless couples are desperate to be parents
And will go through many dollars and effort for that.
Until they too, get to feel battle weary.
And fight with their children.

But it's not limited to kids;
Even married folks can complain.
The singles bemoan their loneliness,
The marrieds yearn to be free.

And a few lucky people
Have balance and luck
And have both spouses and kids they actually adore,
Oh, isn't that simply a bore??!

Thu 10-May-07: Accountant Limerick # 15

Limerick # 15: Accountant
Accountant is a man I like to see
Because he shows me green, like a tree
If my accounts are all fine
He says, "next in line"
And say he, "don't worry, just let it be".

Wed 09-May-07: Microsoft Support (an Oxymoron)

Microsoft Support (an Oxymoron)

Microsoft lied to us.
That they guaranteed support
For windows 2000 through 2010.

So what happened this year?
During the great time update here?
When we changed our clocks early?

Maybe they just forgot
Or maybe they just got greedy
Asking for $5,000 for the daylight savings update fix.

So, I am for one very upset
They wanted us to pay for
The update that they owed us!

Tue 08-May-07: Kids, Kick {A limerick}

Kids, Kick

HaVING Kids are ALWAYS a kick
We get 'em before we get sick
In No time at ALL,
We're ready to fall
And hope that they land on a brick

Mon 07-May-07: Pin the Blame on theDonkey,Elephant

Pin the Blame on the Donkey,Elephant
Kids, take this tail, while we spin around
Back and forth, and up and down.
Let's examine George "W" Bush, # 43
And pin the blame on the ELEPHANT's tail.

Year 2000, Florida voting scandal
Supreme court denies, but next year, it lied.
Year 2001, Advance 9-11 warnings ignored.
War one, Afganistan, simply aborted.

Year 2004, Ohio voting scandal
Repubs stole election site that nite!
Bush case for WMD's,
just lies if you please.

It's time to pin the blame on Bush
No planning, no Thought, big bucks, and a, "HUH?"
Stop the Bush, Stop Cheney
And restore our democracy!

Wolfowitz plots and planned for war
But forgot to plan on leaving or going home.
Alberto decides water-boarding isn't torture
And gets kicked upstairs, as chief law man.

Sun 06-May-07: Stop the War

Stop the War
War is Bad
Thinking is good.
Listening is excellent
Plannning is Expected

Bush failed by starting two wars.
Bush fails by refusing to think.
Bush fails by refusing to listen.
Bush fails by not planning and managing.

Bush deserves the title, "War Criminal"
Bush deserves to be called, "The American Nyet-Nyik".
Bush deserves to be labeled, "A Trouble making Refuse-nik".
Bush will go down as our first "MBA President" who failed.

Thu 05-May-07: Wolfowitz Must go

Wolfowitz Must go

Sung to the tune of "We love you Conrad", from "Bye-Bye Birdie"

Oh Paul, we adore you so
But however, it's time for you to go
World Bank's top, is now shot,
Thanks to your tricks at the top
All-in-all, we rate you, "So-So"

Fri 04-May-07: Sheer Lunacy

Sheer Lunacy
Is it sane for a dead author or artist
To have a copyright for seventy years after they’re dead?
Or shold copyrights extend as long as patents do>

To understand this, simply imagine life
Without generic drugs, or perhaps simply imagine
Microsoft owning the copyrights or patents on your car.

The software industry likens Microsoft owning the patent
On your steering wheel, to GM owning the rads, and not allowing foreign cars to drive here.

Total insanity would result, which
Is what we have today in the U.S. of A.
Mickey Mouse is protected for another 70 years and won't enter into the public domain.

Thu 03-May-07: Why wait?-- A limerick

Why wait?
MPAA and RIAA got you in a frown?
Don’t worry, you can take them down,
They depend on us to buy.
If we don’t,away they’ll fly,
Remember those special numbers and you’ll be crowned.

Note: see the Poem for May 2nd for those special numbers!

Wed 02-May-07: Ode to Censor Bush

Ode to Censor Bush
George Bush Broke the Geneva convention
And let his minions water-board and torture.

But his buddies in the MPAA think it's OK
To censor free speech; To them I say:
09h: is the way we say Nine in base sixteen (hex; or h)
F9h: is a big number in Hex.
02h: is just a two in base sixteen; or the number of Bushes elected president!
9Dh: is not Ninty, but Nine-Dee
74h: is a number just under seventy-five
EBh: Could refer to electronic Boutique, but doesn’t!
5Bh: Five Bakers.
D8h: Did Eight Years HAVE to HAPPEN?
41h: To President 41, before the storm!
56h: Is the number of years we'll be in IRaQ
C5h: = 197 in base 10.
88h: is our President's IQ.
C0h: is what we have left over.

What do we get when you put them together? A DVD code, no?

Tue 01-May-07: Stinky Cheese Man

The Stinky Cheese Man
The stinky cheese man just came
Bring lots of smells, and tastes.

He Asked if I had time to spare,
I said, "Yes", not being aware.

That we wanted me to watch his cheese,
While he left and did as he pleased,
And left everything into my care.

Since he's left I guess that leaves me right here
And I'm taking some cheese with my beer.
It seems to me, I'm now the new man

To sell stinky cheese if I can,
Till I can find a Schnook I can spear!
