Watch “Dusty Springfield – The Look of Love” on YouTube

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore—
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door
“‘Tis some visitor,” I muttered, “tapping at my chamber door—
Only this and nothing more”

“I’ve never been in love before but I think I’m falling in love with you”

Him 💕



I want to die while you love me,
While yet you hold me fair,
While laughter lies upon my lips
And lights are in my hair
I want to die while you love me,
And bear to that still bed,
Your kisses turbulent, unspent
To warm me when I’m dead
I want to die while you love me
Oh, who would care to live
Till love has nothing more to ask
And nothing more to give!
I want to die while you love me
And never, never see
The glory of this perfect day
Grow dim or cease to be

Hello 🙃

“FOREVERMORE!” a.k.a.: “Everyone Gets Out Alive!” 12/22/2017 FREYA’s

a.k.a.: “Just call me Gus!”

There’s ALWAYS time to start again:

Revelation from his pen!

So much talk of: LOVE ME TENDER + “Dear John Letters?” Return to Sender.

With a fragrance on the card,

That simply says: “It is NOT hard,

To stay together for all time!”

This (pause)

Was from The Man of Rhymes,

Who said he “simply couldn’t leave,

So you will never have to grieve!”

“But HOW – such promises can be?!” She quickly countered;

“I don’t SEE! ( 🙂 ) How we can be FOREVERMORE!”


He’s there, outside her door!

She opened to his cheeky face, and they did share a long embrace!

He whispered words of hope and joy:

“I AM your own forever boy!

Because we have no real control,

Forevermore is in your ‘soul!’

Forevermore will always be,

‘Tis G.od’s U.nfinished S.ymphony!

Love’s forever,

IF you’ll see:

That this ol’ World’s fallacy,

Presents itself to us a Real,

Just don’t “buy-in”-to-every-’heel,’

Who preaches ‘Hell’s Uncertainty,’

Approach all things with joyful glee,

IF you will lose IT in my eyes,

You’ve got a wonderful surprise!

The world you’re taught is tough and hard,

Is Malleable,


And love just squishes, like a bunch,

Of Jello that we had for lunch!

The moment that you say, ‘GOOD-BYE,’

I say: ‘HELLO!’ “

“Well, My, Oh, My!”

One symptom of our toxic individualism is our inability to debate differing propositions en route to discovering truth without triggering a collective sense of personal attack. People hold beliefs so closely and seem to have such an inability to function or self-actualize in spite of these beliefs, or hold a belief while understanding themselves as a meaningful individual independent of that belief, that any contradiction of a belief they hold is perceived by them as a contradiction of their identity and worth. “If you disagree with what I believe, you must hate me as a person,” is in essence what we tell each other, in many more winding and self-exalting words. How we need to usher back an older sensibility regarding belief and conviction that upholds dignity while fairly critiquing the thoughts the dignified person holds. Is it so elusive that one can deeply love his or her fellow human while deeply disagreeing with the beliefs and convictions that fellow human holds? When truth was the victor, personal feelings about each other were based on the inherent dignity of the fellow man, and society worked to help lead itself toward truth one word at a time, not associating the wrongness of a belief with anything except just that: a wrong belief. Now, we’ve so emphasized the person outside of truth, operating under the notion that a person should be entitled to any belief they’d like simply because they exist, that we’ve spun ourselves into a position of being unable to speak truth without being accused of being hateful. This cannot be good for us.


From another chat group –

I asked one of my Arab friends who claimed to be a Palestinian, to tell me the meaning of the word Palestine. He said that he doesn’t know. I asked him if there has ever been a Nation called Palestine in history; if there was, what was the date of inception, details of currency, leaders, national anthem, flag, capital? He couldn’t answer the question.
I asked him again whether he knows where the name Palestine came from. He said no, and I asked him to take few minutes to Google it. He did and found out that the word ”Palestine” originated from the Hebrew word ”Philistine” meaning ”a person who is hostile”. I asked him what did he find. He said that everything he found is Zionist propaganda against the Palestinians.
I asked him, what language do the Palestinians speak? He said Arabic. I asked him does the Arabic language have the letter “P” in its alphabet, he kept silent and refused to answer.
I asked him again, how can you claim that you’re a Palestinian, yet you don’t know the meaning of Palestine. I gave him an example, In Hebrew the meaning of the name ISRAEL is: ”May God prevail”.
Every nation has names and names have meaning. Whether it’s people’s names or Nation’s, they all have meanings.
I asked him if he’s aware that Israel existed before Christianity and Islam? He said no that Israel was invented by the Zionists. I asked him, who are the Zionists, where did they come from and what is the meaning of Zionist? He couldn’t answer.
I said to him that if he believes that the Zionists invented Israel, it also means that the Zionists invented the Quran, Islam’s holiest scripture because the Quran mentioned Israel as a Nation and the Jews as People.

And the Quran actually made it clear that the land belongs to the Israelites.

“We [Allah] settled the Israelites in a blessed land and provided them with good things”. Qur’an 10:93

“Enter, My People, the Holy Land which Allah has assigned for you. Do not turn back, or you shall be ruined”. [Qur’an 5: 21]

“Pharoah sought to scare them [the Jews] out of the land [of Israel]: but We [Allah] drowned him, together with all who were with him. Then We said to the Israelites: ‘Dwell in this land. When the promise of the hereafter comes to be fulfilled, We shall assemble you all together [in the Land of Israel in the End of Days]”. [Qur’an 17:103]

“It was Our [Allah’s] will to favour those who were oppressed [the Jews] and to make them leaders of mankind, to bestow on them a noble heritage and to give them power in the land [of Israel]: and to inflict on Pharoah, Haman, and their army, the very scourge dreaded by their victims”. [Qur’an 28: 5-6]

“We [Allah] gave the persecuted people [the Jews] dominion over the eastern and western lands which We had blessed [the east and west banks of the Jordan River]. Thus your Lord’s gracious word was fulfilled for the Israelites, because they had endured with fortitude; and We destroyed the edifices and towers of Pharoah and his people”. [Qur’an 7:137]

I showed him the 5 verses above and asked him, if he believes that the Quran is eternal word of Allah and should be trusted and obeyed? He said yes but Quran also call them to make war with the Jews. I said to him, yes I know that but the Quran never told you Muslims to claim that Jewish lands belongs to the Muslims:
He said that he doesn’t want to talk about this issue again. I said to him that he should dig a little bit deeper because at the end of the day he will find out that he originated from Egypt, Syria or some other Arab country but there is no such thing as Palestinians. AUTHORS UNKOWN😌


“STEEL and Pudding!” a.k.a.: “Pudding For Dessert!” Dec 27 2017 (Wed.): a couple daze after Christmas! ❤

I want{ed} to give her something!

So I gave her a piece o’ m’ mind!

She took it



And plopped it – ‘neath-her-behind!

I said, with bated breath:

“I (pause) CAN NOT (pause) BREATHE!”

She said: “I’m sorry, Honey Bunches, but there is no reprieve!”

“Please,” I gasped,


”The Third,”

“Do not (pause)

Promise (pause)

(Me) (pause)

A -bsurd!” 🙂

fin. ❤

P. S. : “You’ll get – what you NEED,” She said,

As she flexed her buns of steel!

You’ll get some REAL MUFFINS,



They’re real!

You’ll eat them up; you’ll chew them good,



You’ll bet some “chocolate pud!”

Hopefully, we have a few public servants, some politicians and governmental workers, who are interested in more than just keeping their jobs and status and retirement plans and lining their pockets! So, I wager there ARE a few, honest, service-oriented politicians – However, the name “politician” and/or government worker has almost become synonymous with “crook!” {Consider this wonderful picture of a dinner party, which you get to pay for, to keep your government officials well fed. Everyone in state/federal government needs “a good feed,” so they can have enough strength to derive a few more tax dollars from your income and from your business, and, of course, fines are always a good way to squeeze a few more dollars out of us poor hapless victims, given the insatiable greed we get to experience every day! God Bless America! 🙂 }

Here’s to our government! The Texas State Comptroller has recently fined me again for nonpayment of taxes on the zero income I have made as a Texas business, since I have a little website, with almost zero hits, zero dollars & zero hope for financial gain! Check out my little site, with a few paintings and origami NOT FOR SALE!

I have asked The Comptroller to rescind my business status. STILL, they have requested another fine – so I can kiss their governmental – – – Well, here is a little poem I wrote in “their” honor! Of course, “THEY IS US!”

“We have met the enemy, and they is us!”

A Poem For The Texas State Comptroller’s Office, who, hopefully, have received the letter I sent a few days asking them PLEASE – to stop extorting money from this little non-business-ed (and non-plussed) guy! 🙂 ❤

The Texas Comptroller – the other day – threatened to fine me (again)

In The Usual Way!

The last time they alleged – I owed over “a grand,”

I paid $52!

And they “struck up the band!”

“REPORT! Oh, you vile malicious cad ‘Jay,’

REPORT! What you made in your business, we say!”

“Well, I made nada-zero! Which I’ve told you before,

Again and again! ZERO DOLLARS, p’favor?!

“Well, you-gotta-report-right! So – pay us a fine,

Or, else, come to Austin, and write us a rhyme!

52 here – and 52 more!

We need our sal’ries; we’re GOVERNMENT, galore!


Keeping your jobs and your pensions is lame!”


In your back pockets – YOU say, ‘Don’t compare!


To the filthy and vile folks who,

Use-food stamps and cell phones, provided for YOU!‘ “


Look at The Senate and Reps,

Who line their own pockets!

Their laws, OUR REGRETS!
