Patriotism July 4 ~ Peaceful ➰ America

“PATRIOTISM!” a poem for: JULY 4, Independence Day 2019 (Thursday)

I’m about as patriotic – as a can of Campbell’s Soup,

And I’m-so-darn religious, during the sermon, I might go for-a-poop!

But!!! IF you WANT me to be religious – and that’s sure to make you happy,

Just pray to GOD, God-the-Father, and I will call Him “Pappy,”

And I will worship Uncle Sam too – and touch him on the hem,*

And say: “GOD! bless America!” AND “Fill-IT – to the brim,”

For-I’ll-be-sure-to-toast America, The Land of All That’s FREE,

Even though we-imprison – about-a-million-souls times-three,

Which, comparatively – is A LOT of folks! staying-in-jails-today;

That’s 2-to-3-million in-carcerants – “enjoying?”-a-prison-stay!

They’re-locked-right-up to-show-how-great the-business-of-crime’s-become!

It seems to me – that-MANY-offenses – are really kind-of dumb,

Not justifying, for-instance, the-petty-thief-locked-up-with-a-guy,

Who raped and killed a bunch of strangers! So, THIS-4th, perhaps-I –

Will thank some God of Freedom, and-of-course OUR UNCLE SAM,

That I AM – NOT-in-jail! like-Christians-in-Viet-NAm,

or Muslims in Guantanamo! Yeah, I’m-SURE-some-are-pretty-mean,

But! Can brutality – and torture really be-seen,

In a land that says IT tolerates – religions – and the poor?

I pray for many sad, sick folks! There-seem-to-be-more-and-more!

HAPPY 4th TO EVERYONE! I-hope-we-can-all-get-along,

And bless-one-another with-a-smile-and-a-greeting,

And- strive for-“RIGHT!” NOT-“wrong!”

    “EARLY MORNING BIRDIE SONG!” – happy birthday to you 🎉🎉

    “EARLY MORNING BIRDIE SONG!” a poem Sunday: September 9, 2018 … a.k.a.: “We Birdies Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Butter Thank-You Very Much!” 🙂

    The birdies have come, once again (to) flap and sing,

    To greet us all over – such freedom they bring:

    Flapping & Chirping & Pooping ALL OVER,

    And squawking at (feral) kittie – and our doggie named Rover,

    And the natural process of life has begun,

    Once More! To amaze & renew – WHERE’S THE SUN?

    For-it warms and enlivens each gay, little bird,

    As they eat and they sing and they are NOT perturbed!

    For the things of our World have infected them NOT,

    Like cancer and sorrow and “What have I got?”

    And “What have I done?” and “What more is needed?”

    The birdies proclaim: “YOUR LIFE! YOU’VE IMPEDED!

    With silly-human notions and long-term range goals,

    And voting and engines and cell phones and souls,

    And we-couldn’t-care-less, as we gaily partake,

    Of our good morning bread crumbs – and some-water in The Lake –

    And a chirp here & a chirp there & a flap and a flutter –

    And we’re-just-happy-to-be-here, with some bread without butter! 🙂 -yum!

    Advantages of Licking 🐝

    “SIN RECOGNIZED!” a poem a.k.a.: “Avoiding The First SHOT!” 3 July 2019 : Wed.

    “REAL-sin”-may-be-against-The-Body, so, if-you-deny-IT-“cooch,”

    The Body might DRIVE-you-to-drink, and you’ll be-“consumed” with-“hooch,”*

    Until you get some “nookie” and set The Body at ease,

    But – THEN, if-you-go “coitus-crazy,” The-Body-might-say: “Please,

    Take-it-a-little-easy, ADDICT – and do-not-tire-me-out!”

    Then, get-outdoors and get-some-sun, for-The-Body-is about,

    BALANCE! and-dignity in all things, Ba-by!

    So, REALLY! Sinning’s-about: IMBALANCE! and-just may-be,

    ALL things ARE approved – but! – IN MOD-ERATION!

    For instance: Yes, it’s-prob’bly-good to go-on-a-va-cation,

    But, if-you’re-gone for-more-than-10-days, Friend,

    The body’s-liable-to-get-“antsy,” and “It’s-time for-THIS to-end!”

    Then-you do a little work, to collect a little money,

    So you can buy quality tea – and sweeten it with honey!

    Therefore, BALANCE “here” is really-good, to-keep-you-away-from-“sin,”

    And, for goodness’ sake, NEVER! let “Scabby-Sally” in,

    To your-bed! (pause) for-she’ll-destroy “your-Head,”

    And steal-all-your-money, while you’re-dying, nearly dead!

    But! That’s another story, and, of course, you’re not [so] dumb;

    Oh! and-most-bodies LOVE caresses! So, find-people to-“kiss-your-bum!”

    NO! NO! I’m-only-kidding!! Being NICE -is-good-for-your-body-too,

    So-people-will-say (that) “You’re OK!” and won’t start shooting-at-you!

    Wear you comfy stockings, without too-many-holes,

    And eat you healthy burgers, not-made-from-rats-or-moles!

    Get-a little-bit o’ “s-xy” and a-whole lot-o’ kisses!

    [It’s GREAT ADVICE like this, THAT THE POPE – REALLY MISSES!]

    Also: Be nice to doggies1 and-kitties! for, if-you,

    Feed-’em and pet-’em they’ll lick-your-skin-too!

    And – most-bodies-also-just-love to-get-licked all-over,

    By Tabby and/or Sammy – Rufus or Rover,

    And the “best licks of all” are-from a-nice-s-xy-lover,

    but Society frowns on this, even “under-cover!”

    So, sneak some licks in, whenever you can,

    It’s really quite groovy, and, in-fact, The I AM,

    Said: “If-you-REALLY-love-me, you’ll-give-me-a-lick!”

    The-Disciples-said: “[A] HARD TEACHING!” “Well, it-depends on YOUR PICK,

    For The Right Lover loves to-DO lots-of-skin;

    At-some Ro-man or-gies, THEY-still call-it SIN!”

    “DISAPPOINTING YOUR BODY IS DISAPPOINTING YOURSELF!” a poem WEDNESDAY: July 3, 2019

    Don’t disappoint-The-Body! Wash-it IF-it-do-smell;

    Feed-it, IF-it’s-hungry! and you-can-usually-tell,

    What The Body needs – and what it likes to eat,

    And It-might-like a little-tickle, down there on the feet!

    Also, IF-it-needs “some loving,” give it, pretty quick!

    Whip it out there, baby; I got me here a trick,

    To-show:

    See, I-can-brush-my-teeth and-shave-my-lit-tle-face!

    “Come-on, Honey,” Honey-says; “put-it in this place!”

    When I do-[it], The-Body-goes: “Whoop-tee-Doo-doo-doo,”

    And My Special Lady-likewise: “Yip-pee-Kai-yai-woo!”

    And-DO-NOT-blame some-others, IF you’re feeling BAD;

    It’s-YOUR-FAULT if-you-can’t-re-cognize what-makes-your-body-sad!

    For-The-Body’s “pretty-pre-ferential” really-fairly-specific!

    Just LOVE and-listen to-Your-Body so-You-can-feel ter-rific! 🙂 – Yeah!

    No Surprises 🐝

    “NO SURPRISE!” a poem Wednesday: July 3, 2019

    Things-are hard and sharp! and-things-are smooth and soft,

    And there are times, you-now, when you’ve had enough,

    And when you question “Why,” and when you cry out loud,

    And when you have The Angst – REMEMBER! I am proud!

    I AM proud of YOU and [I] like being with you lots,

    So don’t “lose your faith,” for-we-CAN-“connect the dots,”

    And figure things right out – or! Maybe we will not,

    But! That’s-OK, and we can pray, and here’s a shirt I bought!

    A shirt FOR YOU! ‘Cause I-love-you-too – MUCH-to-be-with-out,

    Your-wonder-ful-ly-silly-boo-hoo-hoo-ey-perfect-crying-pout! 🙂 – Whew!

    And – what-cha think that I would do, if you were not around?!

    Well, you-know I’d-just shrivel-up! – They’d bury me in the ground,

    And, in the ground, I’d dream of you – forever and a day!

    But-I’m-NOT-there, so-I-can-hold-your-hand, and we’ll-both-shout: “Hooray!”

    We’ll laugh-at-The-World of Hard & Soft – & Smooth and Sharp – & “Schizo!”

    So, despite-some-days with-shades-of-gray, I STILL SAY: “Honey, it’s O –

    K-to-go-another-day – and gaze [deeply] in-to your eyes,

    And – WE MIGHT GO A ZILLION YEARS! (pause) [and]-to-me-that’d-be:

    “NO SURPRISE!”
