“TALK BETTER!”  a poem  a.k.a.: “Talk Better; Act Better; Think Better!!!”  Saturday:  December 8, 2018

“TALK BETTER!” a poem a.k.a.: “Talk Better; Act Better; Think Better!!!” Saturday: December 8, 2018

You’re loved – and adored – and, maybe-of-course,
Respected!- IF! your-fine-sentiments-“line-up”-with-The-Source(?)(!)
And – THE SOURCE IS WHAT OTHERS PERCEIVE IT TO BE,
Be it – God – or The Bible – or a stone – or – a tree!
As-long as your ideas are not TOO bizarre,
Or-leave-bad-taste – like-(a)-stale-cookie – in-a-jar!
As long as agreement-with-“MY(?)”-ideas is enough,
Like – 70-or-80 percent – of my stuff!
Then – I’m OK – and my judgment’s not “bad,”
As long as I make you happy – and toss out the sad,
And fake my own death! – AND – Make the right sound,
Then-my-brilliance-and-genius-is-EASILY-FOUND!1
BUT – if-not -well-I-better-go-hide-under-a-rock,
And not come out, baby – without-“BETTER”-talk!!! 🙂 – Rub-a-rub-a-rub-a-dubba!

“AIKIDO: LOVING PROTECTION?”   a poem   a.k.a.: “Tendencies To Hide In Cyber Space!” a.k.a.: “The Serpent In The Garden of Eden Has Materialized As Your Electronic Gear!”  in the series: “No More Life Styles, But Device Styles?!” Saturday:  Dec. 8, 2018

“AIKIDO: LOVING PROTECTION?” a poem a.k.a.: “Tendencies To Hide In Cyber Space!” a.k.a.: “The Serpent In The Garden of Eden Has Materialized As Your Electronic Gear!” in the series: “No More Life Styles, But Device Styles?!” Saturday: Dec. 8, 2018

[Your “device” is talking to you:]

{You want; you want! So, [I] come in,
To-protect-you, Dear – from-ignorance-and-“sin!”
It’s my JOB! It’s my role!
I’m-your-protection – JUMP IN MY HOLE!
You are EXPOSED! What’s next, my Hon?
You’re-“silly’s”-“off-the-charts,” and-it’s-“bar none!”
This is love, I DO NOT control –
Come-on-now! Climb up this “pole,”
And HIDE-FROM-THE-WORLD; I’ll guard you (down) here;
Up-there, in-The-I-Clouds, you’ll-have-nothing-to-fear!
And – Darling, it’s OK – to fall asleep,
For I-AM-always vigilant – and-my-love-WILL ALWAYS KEEP,
You so protected – and happy – and free!}

“But-there’s-no-air-in-CYBER, and I’m-stuck-in-a-TREE!”

{Well! Hold your breath! Breathe shallow – and gasp!
I KNOW what is best – You’ll-be-safe!}

“THERE’S-AN-ASP!!” *

[The “electronic” snake slithers up to your ear – and whispers:]

“I’ll protect you FROM YOURSELF – I have THIS KIT,
And you can’t use the tools – I understand their fit,
About-using-electronics, in MY VERY SPECIAL WAY,
To-protect YOU – (pause) from whatever – you might say,
Which is obviously wrong – So-I’ll-protect- you-every-day,
And-as-you-turn-into-a-donkey, it’s-so-cute-when-you-bray!
It’s ALL – my way – my-SLITHERING-WAY-of showing you,
That you can’t think – You need ever-more protection too,
For, your-INCOMPETENCE – is what comes to my mind,
When I think how vulnerable you are – I’ll-protect-YOUR-precious-BEHIND!
‘Cause YOU CAN’T SEE – BACK THERE! Where evil doth abound,
Within MY BOSOM, true-goodness is found!
YOU NEED ME! Without-me? Just “take your life” too,
Because-just-think-how-WITHOUT-ME – you’ll be infinitely sad and blue!
SO-DO-BE -like-The-Ladies – in-Ancient-Bombay,
Who roasted with dead husbands, in the glorious Hindu way!”

[Awakening – to another dream, where Intel & Social Media Systems (and their overprotective “censorship coders”) & computer companies & systems do not dominate:]


I-now-find-myself – in-a-classroom, with a teacher I know:
The Course’s Name is called: “AIKIDO” and is taught just so!

“You-CAN’T-PROTECT-others – and nothing-can-PROTECT-your-SELF;
YES! You can SEEM-to-HIDE-on-the-airwaves! But-LIFE’S-AN-EMPTY-SHELF!”

“So, JUST SMILE A LOT – we’re-all DUST IN THE WIND;
You and your husband – have surely NOT SINNED!”

The Instructor, one J-Jay says:

“Sin is a myth,
That others will use – TO ‘PROTECT’ YOU with!
Smile OR Frown, precious dust in the wind,
Maybe we’re DONKEYS, but our tails AREN’T pinned!”**

“GOODNESS – WHAT I BELIEVE!” a poem a.k.a.: “Just Don’t Eat So Much Chocolate (Pudding) That You Get Too Sick, OK?!” 11/30/18 – Friday!

I BELIEVE – in the bitter/sweet feelings – that “infect” us all;

Frail, fragile things we be – standing-behind-a-wall,

Of flesh and hope and desire, trying to break free,

And HERE WE ARE (TOGETHER) – INTO – ET-ER-NITY!

Our feelings? ARE ETERNAL! and we try to strategize,

To hold to those sweet things we have – and cover-up-with-lies,

The bitter, painful feelings – that-we-banish EVERY DAY!

We say: “Be gone, you vile fiends!” – and THEY are apt to say:

“But, Friend(s)! You know, without us (pause) you can-not appreciate,

Those things you THINK are sweet and good, with-which-you-saturate,

Yourselves-with! Come-on! Dance, YOUR DANCE, with ALL your feelings, for –

We’re-all-COMRADES – in this life, but LABELS have before,

Excluded us – from-THE-REINDEER-GAME!

Come-on-now – please-let-us-explain:

That GRIEF is shunned, SO – call it LONGING (pause) for-less-heaviness,

And ANGER’s-just:-INDIGNATION, responding to This Mess,

Which is: DIVERSE ROUGH-HOUSING! Doesn’t-that-sound-grand?

For-the (7)-DEADLY-SINS – are-each-a-misunderstood, last-ish stand:

ENVY’s also LONGING, to have the best in life;

GLUTTONY is LOVE – of the cooking – by your (loving) wife;

GREED’s-also LOVE to-have-and-hold, all-the-blessings in This World;

And LUST (my favorite!) – is playing-a-lot with-my-Sweetie, close & curled!

PRIDE is having REVERENCE, for all you say and do,

And SLOTH – is sleeping-in-sometimes – especially-when-you’re-”blue!”

When STUBBORN-NESS becomes: RESOLUTE

& NASTY?-is: SEXY SPICY,

Then FOOLISH people can-be-called: CARE-FREE,

And PORNO’s – just – plain DICEY! 🙂 – Kisses!

“BOOK BURNING!” a poem, dedicated to Facebook, Inc. – and, now, Tumblr. Dec. 5, 2018 – Wednesday

In Germany, before-The-Great-War,
We burned THE BOOKS, forevermore!
We burned them, yes, for many-a-reason:
COMMUNITY STANDARDS – always in season!
IMPROPER CONTENT – has great appeal!
And ADULT CONTENT, can always deal,
With anything-at-all WE don’t like,
WE-ARE-THE-CENSORS! Book-burning – can psyche,
Us up a lot, ’cause we – WILL control,
All we can, don’t-cha-know?!
And IF-YOU DON’T-LIKE-IT – well, up your (long pause)
NOSE!
Because what WE say – Well! What-we-say –
“GOES!”

“YOU CAN GET TOO MUCH OF A GOOD THING!!” a.k.a.: “Suri, My Doggie-Cat!” November 28,2018 (Wednesday)
My friend SURI – came-a-knocking – – – knocking at The Door;

Yes, Miss Suri – – – she’s so pretty – and-she wants some more!

If-my-friend Suri – wanting-”LOTS,” don’t-GET-ENOUGH-right now,

She’ll-make-up-for-it-10-fold at-a-later-time – some-how!

Suri is my pretty pet – a doggie AND a cat;

She got a little birdie – and then she got a rat,

But SURI WANTED TWO BIRDS – AND 3 RATS FOR HER MEAL,

So next time Suri ate – it was – a-make-it-up-sort-o’-deal!*

Ya-next-time-she-ate-4 birds, the 1 plus one – and two,

And RATS! She ate a lot of them – and then she threw up “stew!”

You-know she could-a been content – with one bird and a rat,

For THAT, you see, is-a-balanced-meal – for-my-Suri – doggie-cat!

It is called PACING, Suri – (pause) you eat one meal and wait,

IF-you-skip-a-meal, you don’t eat two – the next meal you partake!

IT IS WITH LOVE!!!!! 5 hugs – 1 kiss – that is a pleasant meal;

If you-miss out, ‘cause-o’-flood-or-drought, you do not later steal,

10 hugs-with-lots-of-kisses – for – to make it up,

‘Cause 10 hugs, it is way too much – (‘cause-Suri’s-a-little-pup!)

Even for a strong-ish pup, 10 hugs is quite a lot,

And IF to make the kisses up – a hundred kisses are-sought,

Your lips can get quite chappED! and THEN – it’s not-(a)-good time;

It’s KINDA-LIKE-MY-POETRY (and advice!) –

You-can-only-take so-much rhyme!

“THEY’VE BEEN HERE FOREVER!” a poem a.k.a.: “No, They Haven’t!” in the series: “Someone’s Playing You & Yes, It IS You!” Nov. 20, 2018 – Tuesday
When I was throw-ED from the womb- and plopped-down on The Sheet,

I didn’t-know-where-I-was – or-if-there-was-A-”PLACE”-TO-EAT!!

My vision blurred! My senses weak! but – THEN! Your breasts appear! –

And I assumed, THEY-WERE-THERE-BEFORE!! and-that-[you-are-my-dear!]*

When I did move – to ope’ my eyes,

There’s-gram-&-gramps-&-a-lot-o’-flies!

A crib! I’m in – with sheets and light –

And I PRESUMED, with all my “sight,”

That everyone was here before,

And I-am opening – some-prior-door,

To discover – ALL-that’s-waiting-for-me,

“They”-didn’t-JUST-APPEAR!? Well, we shall see!

Now, THE-ASSUMPTION-is: They’ve always been around!

And there’s more-and-more (stuff) to see, that-I’ve-”FOUND!”

THESE PEOPLE! Yes, they did await,

My ENTRANCE – to this Worldly Gate!?

When I popped in – did-they-sign-for-my-birth?

They HAD – nurses’ stations – all-over-The-Earth!!?

Did planes and governments abound BEFORE-(pause) ME?

Sure! They-were-PREPARING – for Little Ol’ J.-D.**

BUT WHAT-IF YOU-KNEW – THEY WEREN’T HERE BEFORE!!!

YOU conjured them up – right up through the floor,

And – in-to-your-conscious-awareness NOW!

So! They’re-all dependent on YOU – somehow!

WOULDN’T-THAT-BE-SOMETHING? – that you have INVENTED?

All this STUFF? and-ALL-these people: DEMENTED!

And they could all vanish, IF you snap your fingers!

NOW! Wouldn’t-that-be-something?

“7 ARTICLE 15s!”* a poem Saturday Nov. 24, 2018!

Preamble: “The Song of The Fretter!” I don’t work well with others, but I get lonely pretty fast] – And – I don’t like molds – and-I-also don’t-mind – breakin’-the-friggin’-cast!] And – my memory – well, it’s like a trap], and, no, Pretty-Baby! I don’t need your map!] For-I – can always figure – where I need to go!] I KNOW – that-I-am-always right – I like to strut! Hey-bro!] An’-I like to read! and-get-caught-up – (pause) in – my-own fan-tas-y!] Leave-me-alone! unless-I-NEED-you!! – need your sympathy!] BUT! I’m a sweet – and kind – ‘n’-a charming-guy!!] So-it’s-strange! That-more-people-aren’t-HERE! Don’t ask me WHY!!!] Just get to know me, get to-KNOW-me a little better!] EXCEPT – I like to be a lone® – and sometimes – I can also be a fretter! 🙂 – Sounds familiar!

When he got DRAFTED, Jimmy KNEW – he might be in some trouble,

And, sure enough, The Army Boys – kept tryin’ to burst his bubble!

Anyway! – Good-Ol’-Jimmy, he did refuse – to strictly heed their warnings,

And many a day – came and went – Afternoons – and Mornings!

Jimmy peeled onions – and he ate pork and beans!

After a few years! He’d been “served” (pause) SEVEN! Article 15s!

Yes! Yes! Good Friends, some folks got massive authority issues,

And, in The Army, that’ll mean – you’ll wash – a lot – of dish(u)es!

So, Catholic Jim – was quite unsure – of how he would proceed,

When Jesus came a second time! – and-Jimmy-said: “Who’s gonna lead?”

“Well, I dunno!” said Jesus; “You’re NOT a guy who’ll FOLLOW that,

So – WHY DON’T YOU LEAD! We’ll follow YOU! You know-a where it’s at!”

So Jimmy led – everyone around! They fell into – many holes,

Which, eventually, sent them all to Hell – fire! and-a-lot-o’-coals!

And EV’RYONE FOLLOWED JIMMY – It was a journey, always on the go,

‘Cause Jimmy couldn’t STAY STILL MUCH – BUT! He was NOT a pro,

WITH LEADING – Other folks around!

So, Jimmy went to Jesus (pause) and THERE He found,

A bit of advice – about GOOD LEADERSHIP:

“IF YOU WANNA BE A GOOD LEADER, JUST – DO ‘THE FLIP!’

YOU GOTTA LEARN – TO BE A GOOD FOLLOWER, and IF you become that,

A PRETTY GOOD LEADER you’ve become – Otherwise, you-can-be-a-brat,

And never be mindful of your followers’ needs,

For, selfish-and-unilateral-leading – oft contention breeds! 🙂 – Follow me!!!

“APPS, ADDITIONS, INNOVATIONS!” a poem a.k.a.: “Easy Does It With All Those ‘Procedures,’ Mr. Roboto!” WEDNESDAY: Nov. 21, 2018! “The Day Before …”

PROCEDURES! are lurking! ever new!

What’s your motivation? Come on! Tell me true!

Is it based on FEAR? or GREED? or-needing-something-to-do?

To fill the time? Come-on! What’s-your-issue?

Another dull day? Then, probably we’ll sue,

‘Cause-the-procedure created-changes? Repugnant-to-you?

PROCEDURES! are-so-pretty! Attractive? and-often(?)-”FREE?”

Or-so-THEY-say – but-BEWARE, my Love; THEY-use-”free”-de-cep-tively;

For every action has reaction – a FREE app uses space,

Your “minutes!” and-in-the-end – it costs – in every case!

And Tele-comm-a-n-Trump-n-Obama – love-to-see – ALL YOUR “APPs:”

“ADDITIONS,” you might also call-’em -to keep you “runnin’ laps!”

Gotta keep you movin’ – keep you “on the edge;”

MAKE YOU THINK IT’S NECESSARY – TO DO A SALES’ PLEDGE!

To get the next, fine INNOVATION – to add it to your life!

So you can keep-a-in-touch with THEM – it-is like a knife,

A double-edged-multi-bladed one, that shines-in-The-Mourning-Light,

And keeps you wanting more and more; for one-thing-there’s such fright:

LIKE: your doggie or your “loved ones,” those things you treasure, Dear,

THEY MIGHT DISAPPEAR! So – CHIP ‘em!!!! (pause)

Yet, it’s VERY clear,

That, then, you have a NEW NETWORK – another thing to pay,

For upgrades! Possible-reactions! from-implants! AND! The-body’ll say:

“What-have-you-put inside ME? Implants, mesh & pills; YOU’re really adding to me – inorganic things cause ills! All this INTEGRATING! of cyber – &-chips – nanodes, AND – vape-ing, tubing – wir-ing – INSIDE ME! ALL THESE LOADS! The stress on body systems, which over-looks-obvious-facts! WE ARE ONLY GUESSING, and-our-guessing-gen’rally-lacks – – – KNOWLEDGE – of some dreaded – future ramifi-ca-ci-on !! WE REALLY NEED TO CHILL A BIT – AND LEAVE MOST STUFF ALONE!! We’re thinking that additions – will make improvements, BUT – Our poking and our meddling – has carved for us A RUT, Of perilous, (pause) sure (pause) and near demise!” –

I REALLY-think: more-sun-and-air – and-touch-and-kiss –

MIGHT CLEAR-UP ALL-THESE-LIES! 🙂 – Well, now, do-ya, Pil-grim?!?!

fin ❤

postscript:

AND – SOCIAL NETWORKS! – and (free) Blogs! just like TV,

Are all just (really) ADDITIVES! to-manipulate-you-and-me!

YES, WE A L L DO-WALK “THE RAZOR’S EDGE” of innovations,

But – they keep us cornered – and afraid – in our little “stations!”

FOR – WE SHUN THE LIGHT, AVOID THE AIR AND SEEK FOR “OUTLETS” EVERYWHERE!!

🙂 – Oh, OMG! There’s a plug-in outlet now! I better hurry! and “charge!”

“No work and APP play – makes Mac a dull ploy!” The Mystic Poet. 11/21/18

American Government

A woman dies at age 65 before collecting one benefit check. She and her employer paid into the system for almost 50 years and she collected NOTHING. Keep in mind all the working people that die every year who were paying into the system and got nothing.

And these governmental morons mismanaged the money and stole from the system, so that it’s now going broke.
BEAUTIFUL! And they have the audacity to call today’s seniors “vultures” in an attempt to cover their ineptitude. DISGRACEFUL!

The real reason for renaming our Social Security payments is so the government can claim that all those social security recipients are receiving entitlements thus putting them in the same category as welfare, and food stamp recipients.
THIS IS WORTH THE FEW MINUTES IT TAKES TO READ AND DIGEST!
F.Y.I. By changing the name of SS contributions, it gives them a means to refute this program in the future. It’s free money for the government to spend under this guise.
The Social Security check is now (or soon will be) referred to as a Federal Benefit Payment ?
I’ll be part of the one percent to forward this. I am forwarding it because it touches a nerve in me, and I hope it will in you.

Please keep passing it on until everyone in our country has read it.
The government is now referring to our Social Security checks as a “Federal Benefit Payment.”
This is NOT a benefit. It is OUR money , paid out of our earned income! Not only did we all contribute to Social Security but our employers did too ! It totaled 15% of our income before taxes.(This should be enough for you to forward this message, If not read on.)

If you averaged $30K per year over your working life, that’s close to $180,000 invested in Social Security.
If you calculate the future value of your monthly investment in social security ($375/month, including both you and your employers contributions) at a meager 1% interest rate compounded monthly, after 40 years of working you’d have more than $1.3+ million dollars saved.

This is your personal investment. Upon retirement, if you took out only 3% per year, you’d receive $39,318 per year, or $3,277 per month.

That’s almost three times more than today’s average Social Security benefit of $1,230 per month, according to the Social Security Administration. (Google it – it’s a fact). And your retirement fund would last more than 33 years (until you’re 98 if you retire at age 65)! I can only imagine how much better most average-income people could live in retirement if our government had just invested our money in low-risk interest-earning accounts.
Instead, the folks in Washington pulled off a bigger Ponzi scheme than Bernie Madoff ever did (or Lyndon Johnson).
They took our money and used it elsewhere. They “forgot”(oh yes, they knew) that it was OUR money they were taking. They didn’t have a referendum to ask us if we wanted to lend the money to them … and they didn’t pay interest on the debt they assumed. And recently they’ve told us that the money won’t support us for very much longer. (Isn’t it funny that they NEVER say this about welfare payments?)
But is it our fault they misused our investments? And now, to add insult to injury, they’re calling it a benefit, as if we never worked to earn every penny of it. This is stealing!
Just because they borrowed the money, doesn’t mean that our investments were for charity!
Let’s take a stand. We have earned our right to Social Security and Medicare. Demand that our legislators bring some sense into our government.
Find a way to keep Social Security and Medicare going for the sake of the 92% of our population who need it.

Then call it what it is:
Our Earned Retirement Income .

“THE MAN WHO LOOKED FOR BETTER THAN GOOD ENOUGH!” a poem a.k.a.: “If Everyone IS REAL Crazy, BUT You Don’t Care For Being Alone, You Better Get Crazy Too! Because Crazy Sometimes Beats Lonesome!” November 16, 2018 – Friday!

“I’m restless!” “I don’t know what to think!” “I FEEL alone!”

Said Mojo Jones (pause) who “had a bone,

To pick,” with-all-his-neighbor-folk!

“I JUST THINK – ALL THESE ‘BELIEFS’ – ARE ONE BIG JOKE!”

When Jones would ask – WHY his neighbors believed THAT:

“Well, ‘twas good enough for Grampa,” said Ronnie McBlatt;

“It-was good ‘nough for pappy,” Sam Wallopee said “on the spot!

“Good enough for GOVERNMENT WORK,” said Willow, smokin’ pot;

“‘Twas good enough for 7 generations of us!”

Said Twila Florencio, and that girl could cuss!

But Mojo Jones – didn’t-want “good enough;”

He wanted BETTER! MUCH better! and Mojo was tough!

Jones searched for “better,” but not in a mosque or a shrine,

And he “poo-pooed” The Catholics – and – Saint Valentine!

Plus! Native American AND New Age – weren’t his “cup o’ tea!”

“The Galactic Commander(s) – can-come argue with me!!”

Said Mojo Jones – so he went off alone,

To some deserted island – and he picked clean his bone!

CLEAN! and he had no one to be around,

And he got REAL LONESOME, and he kissed The Ground!

He-came-back-to-our-town – with a new point of view:

“IT’S GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME – IF IT’S GOOD ENOUGH FOR YOU!”

Now that we have determined that EVEN THE DIRECTOR is liable to be a “no-show,” for the Community Thanksgiving Concert this evening, the poem entitled: “JESUS SHOWS,” dated November 7, 2018, is surely brought to mind!! However, what will the fate of those errant “melodierizers” be? Well, just this morning, anticipating the situation at The Presbyterian Church at about 7:00 P. M. this evening [when the concert is SUPPOSED, to begin with MORE than one choir member!], this poem “arrived,” and I think this should quell your concerns – as to – their fate(s): I just – call it …

“WHATEVER HAPPENED – TO THE O T H E R SINGERS IN THE CHOIR?” a poem a.k.a.: “The AFTERMATH!” a.k.a.: “What Happens IF JESUS SHOWS And You Get On The Wrong Star Ship!” November 15, 2018 (Thor’s Day)

So, Yes! Good J-Jay-and-Jesus – (pause) sang their Thanksgiving DUET!

And, of course – it WAS a-really-BIG, “a-really-big-shoe,” you bet!

But we’ve-wondered often – what the fate – of-The-Others-REALLY WAS:

“Happily Ever After!” doesn’t-always-happen JUST BECAUSE!

However-let’s-hold-judgment – and-release This-GLAD-News-Flash:

[The-choir-members HAVE-returned – and they brought with them some cash.*]

This-here – is-the-account, we-have, and, I-assure-you-it’s-NO-CON,

For we got-it – from choir members – like MAD-and-PENNY – JAN** & DON!

In their OWN WORDS is appropriate, as we-consider “such-other dimensions;”

Thank GOODNESS things turned about so well – we offer these pretensions:

“We climbed aboard their star ship; we headed for the skies,

And, goodness, little-did-we-know – it-was SATAN in disguise,

Disguised like-The-Blessed-Jesus – how-could-we-have-been-so-mistaken!?

Anyway! The lot of us – was really – VERY SHAKEN!

We-were-taken to a glorious place – one filled – with lots of light,

But it was so darn luminescent, that we all just lost our sight!

And WAS IT HOT! just burning! with lighted coals and ashes,

And Satan told us: ‘SING! YOU FIENDS! or-you-get-one-thousand-lashes!!’

They gave us harps – and pitch pipes – and we did sit upon,

Blocks of cold, hard gold – but-remember – our sight, it was so gone!

Thus, we couldn’t SIGHT READ no-thing – it was a terrible plight,

Our-Director-kept-saying: ‘Follow ME!’ He-must-a-waved his hands, all right!

Anyway! There we were! Just-a-singin’ – For-what seemed like eternity!

And, THEN, one-day(?) – we-heard-motor-engines – What-NOT-on-Earth-could-this-be?

Well, in short-order, we thought that ships – had landed there, close by,

And, SUDDENLY, ’twas J Jay’s voice! That errant bass-singer -WHY?’

He yelled, ‘Have you abducted – The Community Choir? You BIG putz?’

And, then, we heard a confrontation – with folks-falling-on-their-butts!

Yes, yes, J Jay – had brought (pause) a host-of-angels – to our aid!

Jesus-and-J-Jay must have subdued – those-demonic-hordes – and made,

The Prince of DARKNESS*** release our souls – Jesus cried out: ‘THEY’RE MINE!’

And SOON – we were returning swiftly – back to Old Alpine!

So HERE WE ARE – We made it back! And we-were-really NOT GONE THAT LONG!!

It DID – seem like Eternity – BUT in-other-Dimensions – a song,

Seems to take A THOUSAND YEARS – but we-were-gone – just-a-day-or-two!

So we all got back – in time, Good Friends – to do THE CHRISTMAS CONCERT for you!

And – THAT’S OUR TALE! Believe-it-or-not – The ‘J Guys’ had TRUE GRIT!!

And! we promise – never-to-beat-J-Jay-again – if he’s late**** – a little bit!”

“CRITIQUE!” a poem a.k.a.: “The Nag’s Tail (Tale)!” Tues. Nov. 13, 2018

We ALL start-off with-a clean-slate, when sweet romance is new,

So, we’re-initially-careful what we say, watching-what’s-”bleeding-through!”

Like, in the beginning, (s)he might-say: “Oh, STOP, Sweetie-Don’t-do-that!”

It seems just-like a SMALL THING, but-you-could-maybe “smell a rat!”

Or, in the beginning, it’s, perhaps, a little mouse –

‘Cause – LOVE IS NEW – and (s)he’s-not-(yet) your-spouse!

But, as time goes on (sometimes) THE CRITIC GETS HOLD,

And, what was picked-up-as-minor – gets OFTEN oversold,

Until it becomes A HABIT – to harp – on THIS,

Or THAT – or T’OTHER – and THEN! It’s your kiss –

Or-your-hair-color – or taste in clothes,

And the little-annoyance(s) – GROWS and GROWS!! 😦 – Shucks!

AND, WITH A WHOLE LOTTA PRACTICE, EVERYTHING’S WRONG:

Everything-you-do – right-down to-your-Love-Song,

That was, in the beginning, our favorite tune,

But, NOW – “Don’t sing! You sound like a loon!”

And, it’s these little things – that were ORIGINALLY OK,

And nagging just lasts, all the livelong day,

‘Cause nagging comes from habit, and, after a while,

That’s all there is – not even a smile!

All-the-time-can-become – a CRITICAL EXAM of YOU,

And The Day You Were Born – you start to rue!

It’s The Little Things – So, please-cultivate patience;

We all need to TAKE NOTE, in our precious relations,

That our habits of critique – don’t EVOLVE into nagging,

And – I-ain’t-sayin’-I-never … No-no-I’m-not-bragging,

BUT – LET’S WATCH WHAT WE SAY, EVEN IN JEST,

For JESTS-OFTEN-BECOME-HABITS, which-are-hard-to-put-to-rest!

“Some people dig nagging – and really think it’s OK – – – But nagging is nagging! There’s NO LOVE – in that way! – – – Please remember: Use words, pretty pretty, I say – – – And things’ll be wonderful-with-us – every-day! – – – A GOOD PRACTICE: ‘I Love You,’ 100 times – Hurray! – – – Every 24 hours! And you’ll never be GRAY!” The Mystic Poet.

Mystic Poet

“SENTENCED TO DIE – FOR THROWIN’ A CREAM PIE!” a poem Tues. 11/13/18

2000 YEARS AGO – “THEY” NAILED JESUS – FOR “IRREVERENCE!!”

He was sentenced-to-death – scourged -and-no-more-pension! Only-severance!

And WHAT DID HE SAY (Just like Tom Cruz*),

“I GOT THIS, y’all – start pouring the booze,

‘Cause, when it’s all over, we’re gonna party!”

And-sure-‘nough-in-3-days-and-nights – he was hale and hardy!

IRREVERENCE! although-NOT-a-3-letter-word,

Is STILL, at this time, considered absurd,

For-just-like-then-NOW, folks-think-they-know-“WHERE’-IT’S-AT,”

But, Honey, some-things-never-change! Now, WHAT’CHA KNOW ‘BOUT THAT?
