Oh no honey, Twins 🙃

“PROGRAMS!” a poem, programmed, just for YOU, for: Tuesday, June 25, 2019

Twiddledee!* and Twiddledum!* were-twins, so I am told!*
Twins are pretty in-ter-esting! Some-are-meek; some, bold!
Some, you can NOT tell a-apart; some, are-pret-ty dif-fer-Ent,
But-they-all-have-this “magic-connection!” Consider-an-Ex-per-i-m-Ent:

Or-rather A CASE STUDY, ** done some years ago!
I read about-it – in-a-Science-Book! A SCI-ENCE BOOK, you-know!

There-was for-instance, ONE-SET-OF-TWINS, separated-at-birth,
One-kid went to Argentina! The-other – landed in Perth!***
They NEVER met – for 40 years!
And, when-they-did, there-were lots-of-tears!

But (GET THIS!) Turns-out! They-were-BOTH-named-Bobby!****
And they BOTH enjoyed TENNIS, as their favorite hobby!
They both married a DON, and-had-a-cocker***** named BO!!
Both had broken their LEFT TOE!!

And – both had-become Orthodox Jews!
And – both had the favorite color: Chartreuse!******
THE THING IS: NO CONTACT! All that time!
Such co-incidence – is BEYOND this rhyme!

FREE WILL, folks? Well, listen here:
Perhaps there’s some – BUT! Not-a-lot, I fear!
But, NOT-TO-FEAR – even-IF-we’re-mostly-“PROGRA(h)MS!”
That’s OK! Please-re-sist aw-ful tant – ru[a]ms!

JUST ACCEPT, that PERHAPS – It’s-all-FINE,
And – That’s-just-how-it-is! (pause)
YOU’VE A L W A Y S BEEN – MINE!

fin <3


* – Twin characters – in Lewis Carroll’s “Alice in Wonderland!”
** – Decades ago, a study was conducted to find twins, separated at birth, and – THEN! bring them together! The results . . . were INTERESTING, to say the least!
*** – Perth, The Capital of Western Australia!
**** – Actually, ROBERT(O), Bebe! & Babby, with, of course, different last names!
***** – Cocker spaniels: dogs with big, dreamy eyes – and impish personalities!

****** – a color between green and yellow!

“THE HARDHEADED BRAT OF BREWSTER COUNTY?!” a poem August 7, 2018 – Tuesday. a.k.a.: “Doctors, Lawyers, Indian Chiefs: IF You Have Questions, Call The Thiefs; If You’ve No Questions, Then Something’s Wrong – You-Need-An-Attitude-Adjustment … And A Different Song!”

“YOU! YOU! – You-you-need,

To ‘get on board’ and learn to read!

And-agree-more-often with conventionality!

IF-you-don’t, Mr. Hardhead, hardship you’ll see.

STUBBORN – is what WE think you are;

‘Get-with-the-program’-Mister! Then-you’ll ‘go far!!’

Hard Head! Resistant! to OUR decree,

IF-you-weren’t-so-stubborn,

You’d-have-OUR-CLARITY!”

🙂 – And so it went, and so it goes!

I-feel-the-condemnation, DOWN TO MY TOES!

And-yet! I-still-think-these-folks-are-filled-with-s – – –

I’d like them, for a change, to suck my _ _ _,

Or, actually, I really guess I don’t care

Any more (pause) for, this hardheaded “bear,”

Has heard these phrases once too often,

And thinks, perhaps, that in a coffin,

THEY should be put – with all of those,

That THINK – that I should stick my nose,

Into their armpits – and smell the roses!

And sim-pl-y – Adapt, THEIR SILLY POSES!

Q: Are my poor views, so filled with c _ _ _,

They THEY’ll – forever – continue their flap,

To say:

“You’re stubborn! YES! Hard-headed YOU, to have your own opinions, when they ‘don’t ring’ TRUE, with OUR ‘good judgment;’ you need a life / That patterns OURS; so-you-won’t-create strife / We NEED-to set you, set you – STRAIGHT! / Perhaps! We haven’t got-to-you-TOO-LATE!!”

“No, no,” said I; “you’re-not-only-late –

You’re-insane-and-repetitious-and-filled-with-hate,

But, I’m sure, I-am-too and-I’m-OK-with-that:

YOU DON’T SEEM TO BE* – but that ‘don’t’ make me the brat!” – 🙂

“Politically Incorrect And Not Proud Of It!” 

“HARDHEADED MONSTER!” a poem. August 28, 2018 – Tuesday. a.k.a.: “Politically Incorrect And Not Proud Of It!”

He won’t listen – to anyone – ANYONE AT ALL!!

Or! He listens to EVERYONE, but will not “heed their call!”

They-used-to-say: “You’re a FREE-THINKER!” or “You’re clever & cool,”

But NOW – “You’re HARDHEADED!” He-says: “I ain’t nobody’s fool?!” 🙂

He follows his intuition; he weighs things (as) fair or not;

He takes his time at parties; he likes to sit a lot,

And read a porno magazine – or write a poem or two!

“YOU! You-are-so-hardheaded – with-you-what-can-we-do?!”

He’s especially hardheaded, when he is often called:

STUBBORN

or

OBSTINATE, for he has “fire walled,”

ALL of THEIR objections – and-”constructive-criticisms,”

Labels, opinions, spite & fumes – AND-THEIR-PLETHORA OF “ISM”s!

“Giving More Respect To Turkeys!”TEXAS COWBOY

“RESPECT!” a poem, intended to convey respect! a.k.a.: “Good Luck!” October 15, 2018 (Monday) [Preface: “Giving More Respect To Turkeys!” a poem within this poem, kinda! [”Help! I was kidnapped! by turkeys – with beaks and snoods! / They DEMANDED more respect; there were both hens & dudes: /“We are primary coverts!” at me they squawked; / “so we are ‘undercover,’ urging-respect!” and-we-talked! / For quite a while – in-a turkey dialect! / I REALLY must say that I felt a bit ‘hen-pecked!’ /Anyway, I DO – have more respect for them now – / For the noble, stately, L-Tryptophanic turkey, somehow! / They’re just raising families and are regular “birds,” / pursuing The American Dream – and-fertilizing-Earth-with their turds! / But! Their American Dream, for some reason, has been ‘soured; / so I DO urge us to respect them more – and-to-be more ‘chicken-powered!’”] Now, for your regularly scheduled poem:

The QUESTION OF RESPECT!! (pause) It-now comes up so often, Love!

I’m PRETTY SURE – that no one knows – what REAL respect is (even) made-of;

Perhaps because: RESPECT – – – IS RULED BY A LITTLE GIRL,

Who screams: “Y-all-are-‘dissing’-me – ‘CAUSE – you don’t like my brand, new curl,”

Or, sometimes, you’ll hear a guy say: “Pretty-green-dress-Cindy; it’s just right for you!”

THEN! SHE’LL CLAIM DISRESPECT, ’cause he mistakes turquoise for blue!!

Does anyone know what they are talking about when the definitions are all new?

When we ALL see colors differently! So-is DISRESPECT! – seeing-a-different-hue?

Disrespect is SO subjective; it’s like: WHAT IS YOUR GOD TO YOU?

Could be: The Force – Nature – An Old Man – or – A Big-Breasted Shrew!

Disrespect? DISRESPECT! I think THIS definition’s clever:

RESPECT (n): Never claiming any disrespect – regarding-anyone! ever!

Because – when YOU see disrespect – it’s in YOUR eyes! You! The Beholder!

So DISRESPECT TO YOU – IS WHEN Y O U FEEL COLDER:

It’s YOUR reaction! NOT what THEY do or say;

Our terms are so fowled up – I (still) claim –

NOT JUDGING – (pause) is The Greatest Respect you can pay! 🙂

HAPPY~ I just want to be happy 😁 Dont mess with TEXAS, U.S.A.

I JUST WANNA!” a.k.a.: “What’s Goin’ On?!” a.k.a.: “Maybe It’s Best Not To Believe In Much AT ALL!!!” 🙂 November 1, 2017 {Wednesday}

She = S; He = H Yet, interchangeable! 🙂

S “I just wanna be happy!” She said.

H (And) Then, “God” took her – and She was dead!

S “I believe in karma (pause)

And reincarnation –

That we ‘come back’ here and learn salvation!”

Take two – three or four! Or, as many as you wish, and even go to war!

H “So, my darling, my dearest, my life,

You want reincarnation? Get-ready-for-strife!”

Poof! She’s suddenly back in town;

She never died! Will she ever frown?

H (a soliloquy to The Audience!) “I’ll be her hubby and make her smile,

And we two-will travel ‘the miracle mile!’

And, on her death bed, she looked at me, thrilled!”

S Said, “What a happy life – my wishes fulfilled!”

“Tell me The Truth! – Will I always be happy?

Will I always find you – or – am I just ‘sappy?’”

H “Well, my dearest,” I suggested strong;

“IF-you-elect-reincarnation, your MIGHT need a song!”

THE REINCARNATION SONG!

Ya, you can get happy – for a life or two, But then YOU’ll decide, for a little boo-hoo! It’s just the nature of this place – It-requires-balance! Sad-and-happy-face!

S “Oh, dang,” She said; “I thought-that-might-be-so –

Well, I did have really happy – during this ‘go.’”

H “Yes, yes, My Precious, I-was-happy-too,

But Divinity – is a 2-Faced Shrew!

‘God’ gives some of this – and then some of that!

IF lucky with both – {show} “The Welcome Mat!”

fin? <3

or … Gentle Reader(s), you can start the poem with a different beginning:

S “I just wanna be happy,” that’s what She said.

H “Let’s-see-what-we-can-do!” And we jumped into bed!

Van T Barfoot died…  (2012)

Remember the Guy who wouldn’t take The flag pole Down on his Virginia Property a
While back? You might Remember the news story several Months ago About a crotchety old man in

Virginia who Defied his local Homeowners Association, And refused to take down the

Flag pole on His property along with the large

American flag He flew on it.

Now we learn Who that old man was.

On June 15, 1919, Van T. Barfoot was born in

Edinburg, Texas . That probably didn’t make

News back Then.
But  Twenty-five years later, on May 23, 1944, Near Carano  , Italy ,
That same Van T. Barfoot,

Who had in 1940 enlisted in the U.S. Army, set

Out alone to Flank German machine gun

Positions From which gunfire was raining

Down on his Fellow soldiers.

His advance Took him through a minefield but

Having done So, he proceeded to single-handedly

Take out Three enemy machine gun positions,

Returning With 17 prisoners of war.

And if that Weren’t enough for a day’s work,     he
Later Took on and Destroyed three German tanks

Sent to Retake the machine gun positions.

That probably Didn’t make much news either,

Given the Scope of the war, but it did earn

Van T. Barfoot, who retired as a Colonel after

Also serving In Korea and Vietnam , a well

Deserved Congressional Medal of Honor.

What did make News…Was his Neighborhood

Association’s Quibble with how the 90-year-old

Veteran chose To fly the American flag outside

His suburban Virginia home. Seems the HOA rules Said it was OK to fly a flag on a house-mounted Bracket, but, For decorum, items such as  Barfoot’s   21-foot
Flagpole were “unsuitable”.

Van Barfoot Had been denied a permit for

The pole, but Erected it anyway and was facing

Court action Unless he agreed to take it down.

Then the HOAStory made national TV,

And the Neighborhood Association rethought

Its position And agreed to indulge this

Aging hero Who dwelt among them.


“In the Time I have left”, he said to the

Associated Press, “I plan to continue

To fly the American flag without interference.”


As Well he should.
And if any of his neighbors had taken a Notion to Contest him Further, they might have done well to Read his Medal of Honor citation first. Seems it Indicates Mr. Van Barfoot  wasn’t
Particularly Good at Backing down.

If you got This email and didn’t pass it on –

Guess what -You need your butt kicked

I sent this To you, because I didn’t want MY butt kicked!

   
 
WE ONLY LIVE IN THE LAND OF  THE FREE BECAUSE OF THE BRAVE!

Did you know that ~ AMERICA MEMORIAL DAY

What Is The Former Name Of Memorial Day?

Memorial Day occurs on the last Monday in May and marks the solemn time when Americans honor the soldiers that died in military service.

What was the original name of Memorial Day?

When the observance was first declared in 1868 by General John Logan, it was called Decoration Day in reference to a tradition of decorating the graves of those whose lives were lost in the Civil War and its set date was May 30.

In the years following World War I, the day picked up the more inclusive name Memorial Day as people began to use it as time to honor all who died in all US wars. For many, the holiday signifies the unofficial beginning of the summer season.

What is the difference between Memorial Day and Veterans Day?

There is frequent confusion between Memorial Day and its companion holiday, Veterans Day.

The purpose of Memorial Day is to honor those who have died in American military service, while November 11, Veterans Day, is for those who have served the US in war and survived.

Veteran derives from the Latin veteranus meaning “mature, experienced” and has been used to refer to experienced soldiers for centuries. Veterans Day was originally called Armistice Day, marking the agreement that brought an end to World War I on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918 (November 11th, 1918).

In 1954, the name of the holiday was changed to Veterans Day in the United States. However, in some parts of the world, November 11 is known as Remembrance Day.

Some gave ALL, we shall recall!

They-were-glad-to-serve! They-did-heed “the-call!”

So, on this day – of-sac-red-mem-or-y,

Remember those – whose gallant-chi-valry,

Embodies-THAT which-is-noble-and-true,

Which-is-in-herent, in “The-Red-White-and-Blue!”

We lift our hearts – especially this day,

For our fallen-soldiers we’ll always pray:

To THANK! and remember, as-our-gratitude-flows,

And our-pride goes-with-THEM! It-surely-goes,

To-Heaven – and beyond, and our souls won’t forget,

Our heroes and loved ones! On-that-you-can-bet!
