“LOVE HARD SOFT WIRED” a poem a.k.a.: “With Thumper and Bambi In Mind.” Sept. 18, 2019 (Odin’s Day)
Don’t worry so much [then] about getting tired;
You might run ALL DAY and then be inspired,
To run all the next day too Oh, JOY;
Then, fall asleep in my arms, my precious toy.
You’re my EverReady Bunny, and you can go on all day,
And THEN AT NIGHT, WE BOTH WILL PRAY,
For a nice day for THE NICE nextDAY to come;
You’llFallAsleepBeforeThePrayerEnds, and I’ll pat your precious bum,
And whisper so nicely: “I LOVE YOU,”
And you’ll dream of running or jumping or being on The Crew,
Of an animal rowing team, zipping through the sea!
AndYouMust[ABSOLUTELY] LoveTheSea, whichIsYou&Me,
Giving OUR ALL, never worried about getting tired,
‘Cause we’re so excited with our LOVE;
We are HARD WIRED,
With 1000 volts surging through
AND A THOUSAND THOUSAND MORE;
LIFE’S EVER NEW.
Sometimes, of course, the body will say: “OK; let’s rest,”
And you’ll fall asleep on my shoulder. I tell you, it’s The Best,
KIND OF TIRED YOU’LL EVER KNOW,
I love you; I love you; I love you I LOVE YOU SO.
We’ll dance through the fields in our dreams,
OUR FIELD OF DREAMS, where we’ll romp in the streams,
And climb every mountain. Deer Bunny are we,
Never getting tiredOfDancing inTo Eter-ni-ty.
“REMEMBER: THE THREE S’s.” a poem for Wednesday, Sept. 18, 2019.
STAND straight; walk tall,
Have your SELF a real ball.
And (pause) SMILE pretty; any smile will do,
Even with no teeth, it’s good for you,
To try and SMILE throughout the day;
Look in the mirror. SMILE! Hurray!
And keep those shoulders back, andTheHeadRightUp,
“Sipping” ALL DAY “a loving cup!”
AND WHAT’S THE 3rd “S?” Did you guess?
What’s No. 3 thatWe’ll getTo address?
The tension’s MOUNTING; have you got it?
It’s SO OBVIOUS: cross some T’s and iFyouGotAn”I,” just dotIT.
NO. 3, OF COURSE, IS: SHARE,
Share your smile and confident air;
Give it freely TO EVERY ONE,
SO ALL THE GOOD FOLKS CAN HAVE SOME FUN.
At first, THERE’S ONE; NOW, maybe 2;
See all the good that you can do?
TO BE A GOOD EXAMPLE, TO SHOW THE WAY;
Pretty soon, your WHOLE TOWN’s happy all day.
STANDING straight; SMILEing proud;
Now, you’re (just?) another one in the crowd,
Of HAPPY TEXANS, all around;
YIPPEE! WHAT A STATE in which weAre found.
Then, The Nation; then, The WorldIsSHARIN’&SMILI(o)N’
And STANDING straight. ThisIs SuchAn IR ON nnnnnn
Y (ee) that one goofy twit like YOU can have such an affect,
On THE WORLD and Universe, where we can ALL reflect,
THE BEST THAT HUMANKIND CAN GIVE;
SMILE, STANDuP, SHARE: What a way to live.
“__IMMY.” a poem, a.k.a.: “I Want Peace.” Sept. 18, 2019 (Wednesday, KARAOKE NIGHT at The Railroad Blues.)
“My Perfect Chill-out Friend” found me and said: “I want peace, OK?
I’ve HAD ENOUGH of intrigue; it’s time to CHILL OUT all day;
Stay in an air conditioned room,
ThroughToo TO THE YEAR’S END,
With A New Year’s Resolution (My Ever Peaceful Friend),
Of: NO ANGST – & CALM SAILING UPON A PLACID SEA;
You got me there, Baby?” (S)he saidThisAll withGlee.
Taken a-back, I took a back seat,
And I whispered in His(Her) ear [I’mAfraid it was less than a treat]:
(I said) “I can’t do it, Baby, althoughI kindO’ gotYourBack,
But THE WORLD OPER-ATES justLIKE IT’S ON ‘CRACK,’
About all I can give you, give YOU IS THIS:
Since The World is turning, and it won’t miss,
ANY OPPORTUNITY TO DISRUPT YOUR DAY,
To BREAK YOUR PEACE INTO AN INFERNAL DISARRAY,
What I (do) GOT for you is: SOMEONE TO FACE IT WITH;
THAT WOULD BE ME, my cheeky, ___immy Mr./Miss (pronounced: Myth.).
I’d like to hold your hand and kiss your cheek,
As The World GOES CRAZY, reaching A Peak,
Of unrest and excitement then, ebbing again,
AND DOING THAT FOREVER ON THE HEAD OF A PIN.”
[S]HE thought for a moment and said: “Well, maybe PEACE’sOVERRATED;
OK, Big [Girl]Boy, let’s DO IT; LET’S GET MATED,
And together we’ll weather The Storm and we’ll rest during any calm,
And we’ll be as rested as any, WHEN ‘THEY’ DROP THE BIG BOMB.”
And: ETERNITY with ___immy is my fond hope each day;
COME RAIN OR COME SHINE, inTheMorning IholdHer[Him]Close,
AndShout: (pause) “____immy, Yay!”
