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!”

In The Arms Of Love ~

“30 DAYS!” Woden’s Day = The last of February, 28, 2018 …

A lengthy hospital visit can be taxing, this I say,

Body lax, stress in mind – Where’s a happy day?

It’s been said that (pause)

A-fine-routine-does-let-the-body-thrive!

And, when we’re locked inside a room, it’s hard for us to “strive,”

And keep the body happy, with exercise and sun!

Sometimes! Appearance-suffers,

‘Cause we’re laying (at lot) on our bum!* 🙂

So, when our “discharge papers,”

Arrive-on-the-bedside-table,

Perhaps here is some quaint advice, to follow IF we’re able:

(1) It’s been said that 30 DAYS can get us back in action! Just 30-days of-a-little-thing-can-give-us-lots-of-”traction;”

(2) To get “in shape,” just pick a practice, like goin’ ‘round the block! AND DO IT (pause) EVEN IF (pause) it’s pretty hard to walk – Because it strengths bod and mind, to know that you’ve a will – AND, I’ll wager, when you’re done, there’ll be a little thrill;

(3) Now, sit down with your body (pause) as a trusted friend, and say: “You know?! I’m sorry! BUT-the-hospital-stay-did-end! AND – NOW – we-get-to-re-activate, although it may be hard, but we can do it, you and me, and you’re my precious ‘pard!’ And we can move with dance and song, and I’ll massage you new, With finest oils of lavender** – and we’ll get some-nice sleep too! And-a-happy-body, with a happy mind, is what we’re shooting for! But EASY DOES IT, my good friend, to resurrect our ‘core!’ “

(4) And we won’t do no diet, at least not one severe. We’ll eat and drink real simple – might even have a beer!*** but this, I promise, my dear friend, to give you some fine fuel, so we can do our “30 days,” and do them real cool; and

(5) We’ll-get-to-bed-at-a-decent-hour and not use (the) phone SO MUCH (pause) that it disrupts the day (pause) and becomes a silly crutch! This will help “the tone” (pause) of life and love, I say!

So, this advice, I give to all, to recoup from a stay,

At your favorite hospital! You-can-always-find-a-way,

But, EASY DOES IT

Is ALWAYS GOOD!

I love YOU!

Your friend,

“Jay!” 🙂

Processing…
Success! You're on the list.

You are advised to read this poem, in its entirety, before subjecting your “little ones” to the blatant violence, which sometimes arises in natural interactions! Please be warned. 🙂 – OK? Thank-you!

The Little Bittie, Baby Birdie was-a-chirping in the tree,

Chirpin’! Lookin” pretty! Chirps for you and me,

And, THEN! I think! A moment passed – and OH, MY! Birdie’s GONE,

Locked inside – the merciless jaws – of-a-kitty – known as DON!!

NOW, baby birdie, with yellow feathers – with red blood, oozing down,

Does not chirp – too much – right now – it’s beak looks like a frown –

Squeaking now – and screeching – and KITTY, with a smile,

Chews & drinks – the baby birdie, chomping all the while!!

“WELL!” I thought, “IF God were her (pause) (S)HE’d have none of this,

‘Cause God is LOVE & from above, I’m SURE GOD wouldn’t miss,

This chance-to-save-the-pretty-baby-birdie+end-this-war!”

AND, as I thought this, witty kitty – wanted even MORE!

Kitty: (to me!!)

“Now, that’s a tasty, little birdie,” said-Kitty; “don’t be sore,

For I can see, you’re hungry, Love; I’ll leave one at your door!”

(Me, again):

“Oh, no, no, Kitty,” I did say; “[I]-won’t-have-no – pretty – birdie-today!

My mommy’s got some tasty lunch; it’s on fried chicken that I’ll crunch!”

(Back to kitty):

““Well, you and me – are much alike – with GOD!! we are the same;

and THIS STUFF happens – all the time – and-there’s-nobody-to-blame!!”

The pendulum of love ~

“BEING EASY WITH THE PENDULUM OF LIFE!” a Sunday poem ©️

Isn’t EMPTY – just-a-state-of-mind? And-being-FULL-may-be-too!

Can-we-be-neither-full-nor-empty? Really, what is true?

The opposite of boring – may-be crea-ti-vi-ty!

Our body-mind connection(s) – It’s all a mystery!

I’ve been too-filled at times, I think -EXTREMES ARE QUITE THE THING!

Observing-our-moods – as-a-pendulum – has a “classic ring!”

We-say (that) “Seeking balance – is-a – good employ,”

But-a-pendulum’s never balanced! It is a swinging toy.

Our moods & our emotions – seem to swing around,

Some we like – (pause) However! (pause) Some – we’ve found,

Are-not-too-enlivening – and those we’d lose,

IF WE COULD! So – some folks take-to booze,

To numb the feelings, for comfort’s sake,

But, when you’re back to sober, you’ve got to take,

All your moods, and TOUCH EACH ONE,

Which might be pretty difficult! BUT! It could be fun,(!?)

IF we can be “open,” and not be too choosy:

Let’s love THEM all a little bit – without being “booze-y!”

EMPTY’s-about SITTING – and being “strong(?)”

And knowing that the pendulum – does not last too long,

At any point – for it’ll swing the other way!

Sometimes – life APPEARS in technicolor – and sometimes “gray,”

And neither is THAT bad – but neither is so good,

But-we-tend-to-think-we’d-always-like-to-be-”colored” – IF WE COULD!

Yet, without some low, you can’t really savor the high,

AND ALL MOODS & EMOTIONS WILL BE COMING BY.

So, let’s sit together – hold hands – and smile,

And thank our lucky stars – we got each other all the while!

Tapping-on the third eye – to the sides – and down the face,

Might be helpful too – to LET GO – and welcome some Grace,

To accept and surrender – This life’s got it all!!!

As high as we might get, we’re likely to fall,

And, whether you’re full or empty, or if you’re up or down,

There’s often THIS or THAT – you can smile or frown,

But – letting go of judgment may be the quickest way to PEACE OF MIND,

And we can handle a lot, but, without PEACE, we’re “in a bind!”

WITHOUT YOU IN MY LIFE – WHAT WOULD I DO?

My IDEA – of a GOOD TIME? is Being With You!*

fin

* – which can even be just thinking about you – and how wonderful you are – and how perfect – in all your moods – and all your ways!

Sharing is caring ~

There was a farmer who grew excellent quality wheat and every season he won the award for the best grown in his county. One year a reporter from the local newspaper interviewed the farmer and learned that each Spring the man shared his seed with his neighbors so that they too could plant it in their fields…
“How can you afford to share your best wheat seed with your neighbors when they are entering their crops in the competition with yours?” the reporter asked….
“Why that’s very simple,” the farmer explained… “The wind picks up pollen from the developing wheat and carries it from field to field. If my neighbors grow inferior wheat, cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of all the wheat, including mine. If I am to grow good wheat, I must help my neighbors grow good wheat”…
The reporter realized how the farmer’s explanation also applied to peoples’ lives in the most fundamental way… Those who want to live meaningfully and well must help enrich the lives of others, for the value of a life is measured by the lives it touches. And those who choose to be happy must help others find happiness, for the welfare of each is bound up with the welfare of all…

Wisdom ~ sharing ~
