Expectations ~ USA

“EXPECTATIONS 101!” a poem July 18, 2019 (Thursday)

Sadam Hussein wasn’t insane, or-at-least-not-as-much-as-me,

For he always looked forward to wonderful things, like-beheadings, [over]-by-the-sea!*

“I-expect-always: THE-WORST, [and]-therefore, what I-get,

Is something PRETTY GREAT!” Well-Hussein-it’s-a-good-bet:

THAT NOBODY KNOWS-REALLY WHAT-IS-THE-WORST;”

We-THINK “BAAAD”-is-The-Worst, so This-Bubble, let’s-burst!

Arguably, THE WORST OF-ALL is “TERRIFYING?-OBLIVION,”

But-not-like-in-The-Movies, Dears! That’s-just-so: “ple-bi-an,”

Or “juvenile!” “ludicrous!” or-just-plain-“Holly-wood!”

A SAD-FLICK-CAN-ONLY JUST-BE-SAD! I-wonder IF-we-could,

Even-grasp that-OBLIVION’S NOTHING-even-at-all;

It’s NOT EVEN a speck-of-sand on The Plainest Wall!

It’s-not-even a-speck reflecting itself,

Or-a barren landscape, with-a-wee, silly-elf,

All alone by-its-lonesome! Crying-lonely-and-sad,

For: AS LONG AS THERE’S ANY-THING! IT’S-NOT -“ABSOLUTE -BAD!”

It CAN’T-BE-“the-worst,” un-til-NOTHING-remains!!!!!!**

“Something’s-ALWAYS-“good,” even with pains!

For, PAINS are something, BUT-[GO-AHEAD!] Make-your-strate[d]gy,

To EXPECT-THE-WORST, but-the-only-tra[d]gedy –

Is NOTHING! Nothing! That is “Bot[d]-[d]TOM,”***

Or-“Top,” but-who’ll-know-it ? It-won’t-be-SA -DAM!

  • – The Persian Gulf, next to Iraq – part of The Arabian Sea!

** – See you can not EVEN describe it because, of course, NOTHING ever remains, for there are no “remains” to NOTHING! See!? It’s a bunch of words, with no meaning!

*** – BUT! Nothing has neither top nor bottom! See how ridiculous this all is! and – how ridiculous I AM – or even that “someone” “appears to be” considering it. “ALL IS FOLLY!” Ecclesiastes 1:14! (which suggests that EVEN THE BIBLE is FOLLY, or vanity! It is ALL BOGUS!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Uz7I9g9ymY

The First Dream ~

and as I lean against the door of sleep

The Wind is ghosting around the house tonight

I begin to think about the first person to dream,

draped in the skins of animals

talking to each other only in vowels,

for this was long before the invention of consonants.

He might have gone off by himself to sit

on a rock and look into the mist of a lake

as he tried to tell himself what had happened,

how he had gone somewhere without going,

how he had put his arms around the neck

of a beast that the others could touch

only after they had killed it with stones,

how he felt its breath on his bare neck.

Then again, the first dream could have come

to a woman, though she would behave,

I suppose, much the same way,

moving off by herself to be alone near water,

except that the curve of her young shoulders

and the tilt of her downcast head

would make her appear to be terribly alone,

and if you were there to notice this,

you might have gone down as the first person

to ever fall in love with the sadness of another.

Kissable You~

“BEAUTIFUL, WONDERFUL, HUGGABLE, KISSABLE YOU!” a poem 17 July 2019 (Wednesday, Karaoke Night Tonight – at The Railroad Blues!)

We-are in-bed, and-I’m-so-NOT-blue,

‘Cause-o’-Beautiful-Loveable-Kissable-You!

We-eat-and-hic-cup! Yes-s-we-do; (pause)

I’m-with Wonderful-Fashionable-Adorable-You!

We go for a walk; we go to The Zoo,

And-you-say: Your-Love – will-always-be-true!

We take a-nap; (pause) you hold my hand;

We gaze a-lot; we-understand,

BEING-IN-LOVE! is-The-Law-of-The-Land,

AND! The-Goal-of-All-Life, Through-The-E-ternal-Sand!

You-say:-“Are-You-hungry?” I-say: “Yes, for You,

‘Cause-you’re-Huggable-Kissable-&-Delectable-too!

So-you-blush, just-a-little; you-smile-and-say:

“Thank-you, Dear-Friend, for-a-wonderful-day!

And, as-The-Sun-sets, we’re-both-in-our-bed,

And on-my-shoulder – is-your-little-head!

(pause)

We-dream-of-Heavenly-castles-&-things-we-have-said,

I’m-with-The Loveable-Angelical-Gal-I-have-wed!

Stroke yourself, life is just an experiment ~

“I HURT AND JUST WANT SOMETHING TO HELP!” a poem a.k.a.: “Just Smile And Stroke It!” 17 July 2019 (WEDNESDAY)

Life’s AN EXPERIMENT! to: Find Relief,

From: Boredom!-Pain!-Uncertainty! and-especially BELIEF!

I’m BORED! [so] Stimulate me!!!

I-hurt! A: Then-seek-a-medical-com-mun-i-ty!

I-still-hurt! [So, I-wanna-make-someone-else-hurt!!!!]

I-don’t-KNOW! A: Then-learn! and-YOU’LL-PROBABLY?-BLURT,

OUT-“THE-TRUTH,” which-is-just repeating what-you-heard!

My Beliefs!! They-keep-me-from-flying [away] like-a-bird!

I-wanna-ESCAPE! (Is that all right?)

I need a change! I-need to-“see The Light!”

THIS HURTS! THAT HURTS! What-hurts? and WHY?

EVERYONE! (inside) or OUT – is-just-having-a-cry

So-much-pain! MENTAL! and “in?-the-body!”

Well, we’re-JUST “SEPARATED!”

So, sit-on-The-Potty,

And – Let is all go, so it’s out-in-front-of-you,

Now, grasp-it!

Love-it!

Look-at-it! It’s TRUE:

It ain’t all-that-bad! (pause)

Just-don’t HIT-at-IT!

You-can-just-smile – and stroke-IT!

Right where you sit!

Sometimes you don’t understand why people feel unable to cope
Maybe if you really care to listen to why or what a broken soul is behind those eyes
You may listen to what is behind those sad thoughts.
Is it really what they say or how they say it.
Never take a life for granted and say ”get over it” cause that little phrase just may push someone to the brink of despair.
Respect those personal feelings, don’t push them with questions that the will not disclose about themselves. Don’t invade personal space, tread softly. When someone trusts you never make light of their circumstances. Feeling stuck in a Box, drowning beyond all reasonable outcomes never overcomes their personal grief.

Monsters under your bed ~

“IF YOU FIND THEM!” a poem a.k.a.: “Integration!” July 15, 2019: Monday

IF you check-for and-find MONSTERS! under-your-bed,

Remember: You are just – gazing INTO YOUR HEAD!

For, whatever “terrors” you might see,

Are-already RESIDING-THERE, inside of Thee!

So, here’s some-hopefully – acceptable advice!

Just crawl under your bed (Don’t think twice!)

And make FRIENDS – with YOUR “monsters” INTRODUCE-THEM-TO:

Their BEST FRIEND! who-is-ALWAYS-YOU!

Kiss them! Hug them! Make them feel AT HOME!

Tell them: “CLIMB UP HERE!” into “My Pleasure Dome!”

And, after you’ve gathered them all in,

Tell them – that: “YOU (they) ARE-N O T ‘refuse and sin,’

Rather, you are THE MOST POWERFUL ALLIES I’VE GOT!”

And (IF YOU WANT) have a big party – Offer-them: “toasts!” A LOT!

For, THIS IS INTEGRATION! = bringing-all-parts-of-you-together!

Now, you-can bear-chains! wield-whips! and wear-LEATHER!

For, “Integration” is a nice place to be!

It means: You-need-never-again-fear-yourself! & Ireland, you’ll-always-see!

American President ~

“WHAT’LL WE DO?” a poem in the series: “Mr. Hip (Trump) Goes To Town!”* 14 July 2019 [Sunday]

(calling from “Campaign Headquarters:”)

“Mr. Trump, we’ve a dissident-poet, “diss-ing” in Texas!”

“No prob.,” said The-Don, as-he-cruised-in-his-Lexus;

“For, that poet’s STILL-A-SHEEP!

“But, sir, he-might ‘rile’ things up!”

“Not to worry,” said The President; “he’s STILL – just a pup!

A sheep, although vocal, is STILL in his pen!

Let-him ‘ba-ba’ and chatter, for-he’s-NOT-among-MEN!

He’s just stuck with sheep, and he’s-a-sheep-too;

I’ll-figure-out-in-time with-him, what-I’ll-do!”

“Heh-heh-heh, heh-heh!” went-Mr.-Trump-to-the-phone;

“JUST WAIT! ’til-I-get that-Mystic-Poet-a-lone!

I’ll shave him and starve him – and laugh-in-his-[sheepish]-eye!

I have me some plans – and they never will fly,

Off-of The Radar! I-KNOW-I’LL RULE THE WORLD!”

[Yet, as-Donald-did-talk, The Sheep had unfurled,

With-the-help-of-The-Poet some-plans to-escape,

To STEAL THE TRUMP CARD! and-even-Don’s-“cape!”

His “Comi-Con-Super-Hero Cape of Renown!”

SHEEP-MAY NOT-ALWAYS – WEAR-A SHEEPISH, LITTLE FROWN!

(from “International Sheep Headquarters:”)

“Little does Don know – we’ve a trick or two – UP OUR WOOL,

To expose any – mega-lo man-i-a-cal bull!

So, you-may-rest (NOW) in some certainty, you card-playing-Pres-i-dent,

But-just-remember: (1) Pride causes Falling! (2) For-an-overconfident-“Resident!”

Praise ~

“IN PRAISE OF PRESIDENT TRUMP!” a poem a.k.a.: “A Great America Is A Good America; A Great President Is A Good President!” a.k.a.: “How To Balance Diplomacy And Keep ‘Her’ Safe!” in the ever-popular series: “Mr. Hip (Trump) Goes To Town!”* Sunday: July 14, 2019

SOMETIMES, some-isolation – is-appropriate – and-blessed!

Thank God for our President, who-has given-us good rest!

For he is strong & steadfast – and guards our sacred shores,

Against those that would hurt us – and break apart our doors,

The doors we have erected, to-give-us [some] pri-va-cy;

We-LOOK-FORWARD-to-the-strangers’-knock, when-they-stop-by-for-some-tea;

A tea that’s served WITH KINDNESS, for the-respectful and the-kind;

However, there-ARE trespassers – who have a different mind:

The mind to quite profane – our hallowed, sacred land,

And YES! We’re sometimes “door mats,” when-we-won’t take “a stand,”

To-safeguard our-glorious-bride; She need NOT be defiled!

President-Trump he-seeks to-keep things-both-safe-and-mild!

So, PRAISE we give to such fair thinking, but we’ll-hope-to-never-over-reach,

For ANYTHING CAN GO TOO FAR, and, so, I do beseech,

Our President, Good President, to keep a kindly heart!

FOR, BALANCE IS SO DIF-FI-CULT! SMOOTH-SAILING IS AN-ART!

Famous Poets

O proudly name their names who bravely sail
To seek brave lost in Arctic snows and seas!
Bring money and bring ships, and on strong knees
Pray prayers so strong that not one word can fail
To pierce God’s listening heart!
Rigid and pale,
The lost men’s bodies, waiting, drift and freeze;
Yet shall their solemn dead lips tell to these
Who find them secrets mighty to prevail
On farther, darker, icier seas.
I go
Alone, unhelped, unprayed-for. Perishing
For years in realms of more than Arctic snow,
My heart has lingered.
Will the poor dead thing
Be sign to quide past bitter flood and floe,
To open sea, some strong heart triumphing?

~ An Arctic Quest – Helen Hunt Jackson

At the Bank

“V for VANESSA!” a poem 11 July 2019 (Thursday)

Vanessa! is-at The-Window THERE,

AT THE BANK! She-is SO-FAIR,

with-lots-of-cash – and-beautiful-hair!

We gasp! in-wonderment! hypnotized-ly, we stare,

At VANESSA, but-please-be-aware:

THE BANK! It-is “Vanessa’s Lair,

For, what-we-THOUGHT-was-hair is-a-web,

And, as-your-money’s-deposited – YOUR LIFE DOTH EBB!

She’ll-take-from-you ALL-that you have;

(Even) A GREEDY SPIDER – offers “salve,”

To-make you FEEL “alive & free;”

Yet, in her web, She’s-captured-Thee!

Yes, Vanessa’s fair! YET! DEADLY too;

Beware! She’ll-suck The-Life from you!

My wife the Mystery Queen ~ lives in a Box 🍱

“MYSTIQUE!” a poem a.k.a.: “The Life of Mystery!” from the popular poetic series: MIM MY (Mystique In Mystery, Mucho Yummy) Wednesday: July 10, 2019

There’s only one girl, in-all-The-World, made for-me!

ONLY ONE (There-can-be-only-one!) She lives-across-The-Sea!

She lives in Her Kingdom; she’s a QUEENLY BABE,

And she lives – to LOVE — to moan, to-“outgrabe!”*

Her name is: MYSTIQUE, which-is-A-Mystery,

And her nickname’s: Miss Terry, and “The Prince” says: “Oo-wee!”

“The Duke” – and “The Earl” – and “The Duchess” all agree:

“There’s NO ONE like Terry! Miss Terry we see,

Is the embodiment of Beauty! and Hearts yearn to be,

At her dis-posal! To-serve-[her], naturally!”

If you fulfill her a wish, a blessing will attach;

You can try to serve her, but she’s a slippery catch!

Plus, her OTHER nickname’s: “Teak,” for this wood she adores,

To make her some tables and pillars and doors!

So, Miss Teak (or Miss Terry) is just called: “MISS T!”

I get MISTY-just-thinkin’-of-her, and I-might hug a tree,

IF I miss her too much, for she’s rooted to The Earth,

And has been FOREVER! SHE never had birth!

With-no-birth-[date], SHE-emerged, from a sea shell, we-are-told!

Some day I might touch-her! Yes, I-AM-so-bold,

To imagine I-might-approach – a creature so fair!

An angel? A daemon? With a-lock of her hair,

I think I’d be satisfied; I’d-just stay in my room,

And touch-her-hair-a-lot, smelling its mysterious, strange per-fume!

There’ll be a sign on my door, or, maybe-more-like-a[n]-“headstone:”

“DO NOT DISTURB! LEAVE THIS MYSTERY ALONE!”

Inside! (if you can get through) will-be-The-Crazy-Lover – of-Mystique,

Forever with her locks? magical and sleek!***

  • – a term found in Lewis Carroll’s “The Jabberwocky!” Humpty Dumpty explained it to Alice one day: “What does ‘outgrabe’ mean?” “Well, ‘outgribing’ is something between bellowing and whistling, with a kind of sneeze in the middle; you’ll hear it done, maybe–down in the wood yonder–and when you’ve once heard it, you’ll be quite content. Who’s been repeating all that hard stuff to you?” “I read it in a book”, said Alice.

** – D[a]emon: a powerful spirit of universal proportions, not necessarily “evil!”

*** – A million years passed, and one day his door-did-fall! – – – and-there’s Mr. Silly Pants, 1000 Mystiques tall! – – – For he’s been cloning-each-precious-hair – to make many Terry-s, so-fair! – – – And they need to find water, across-The-Sea, over THERE!

“IN SEVERAL PARTS!” a poem, a.k.a.: “Pass Me A Frappuccino, PleAse

“IN SEVERAL PARTS!” a poem, a.k.a.: “Pass Me A Frappuccino, Please!”

One part of you worries! Another part [simply] worked it out!

One part in so happy! One part likes to pout!

Pout-y parts are-still-purty [pretty], and poop-y parts are nice,

Every part, by-itself, is-a-precious-little-slice,

Combining all together, to make the perfect you,

From several parts, just like a play –
You’re Shakespeare, through and through,

With comedy and tragedy: DRAMA! and a twist,
Especially! at your end, My Sweet! which I’ve often missed,
BUT! Your front is also special, and your sides are good parts too!

I just love-a ALL your parts! Even-the-ones- that-will-go: “BOO!”

And SCARE ME HALF TO DEATH, My Love! Each part has special needs,
But each part’s TOTALLY worth it, because-combined Well! Each-part-leads,
To making-the-magic-of-you, which-I-could not live without,
Which brings us back, of course, My Love – to-that-part we just call “POUT!”

Pout combines with: CRY – and WHIMPER – when you do not get your way,
But, when you do,* there’s another part – that-cries-aloud: “Hey! Hey,”
And bounces all around the house – and grabs me, ’cause it’s happy:
It’s ANOTHER wonderful part of you; we call IT – Mrs. Frappy!**

Australian Vegemite 😁😁

“GREAT EXPECTATIONS!” a poem a.k.a.: “The Unexpected!” It’s Thursday: Sept. 20, 2018 “Just be aware! Anything can happen! Anytime! Anywhere! It is the nature of This Place: The Unexpected! OR – Don’t beware! Just EXPECT The Unexpected!” The Mystic Poet.

“I trust you, Mr. Giggles!” said faithful, little-Sweet Sue –

As she offered a-vegemite-sandwich – for-her pet kangaroo;

After all, Mr. Giggles had been her pet since birth –

They had shipped him in – 4 years ago – from a place we just call Perth!*

And THEN – there was Bonzo, who ate bananas and would groom,

All the bugs from your hair – and even swept every room!!

But ONE DAY – Bonzo & Mr. Giggles – got-together to-conspire,

Two pretty-wild “animals,” in-captivity – but STILL ON FIRE!

As-she-was-sleeping, Bonzo tore mama’s face – A LOT!

And Mr. Giggles – cornered Sue – near “the stinky pot,”

And raped her-and-tore-up-the-house – We cornered him in “the pen,”

[Hormone-ravaged Mr. Giggles! I-guess-it-was (just) a-matter-of-when!]

Before shooting him 10 times, before he finally dropped!

Then, we hired cleaners, who went in there and mopped,

Up! ALL THE TRUST – we now DON’T have in kangaroos,

And Bonzo, of course, got “put down!” It’s-all such sad news!!

BUT! WHO YOU GONNA TRUST? or WHAT WILL YOU HANG ON TO?

God?

Mama!

Or a dog named BOO! 🙂

 

“Put your trust in ME – You can count on MY LOVE!”

I heard it from a beautiful, gentle, young girl – Gentle! Like a dove,

And, when she “snapped” a few weeks ago,

{She killed a lot of “friends” in our school, you know!}

I kinda decided – not to put much trust in anyone!

Especially ME! For I can “snap” too, my Hon!

I’VE DECIDED TO PUT MY FAITH HERE:

(And, yes, I know – there’s a lot of fear!)

I TRUST that people and things will do exactly what they will,

No more, no less – so it’s kind of a thrill,

TO HAVE NO EXPECTATIONS! Que sera, sera!** – 

And NO DISAPPOINTMENTS! Especially-regarding “Justice-Under-The-Law!”

AND – I SURE don’t expect “my devices” to-ever work,

If I did, I think – I’d just be – a big, ol’ jerk –

For this crap will work, (but-only) thanks to a God named DELL,

If I don’t like that, an algorithm-or-Network-will-be-happy-to-tell-me-to-go-to-HELL!

SO! I ain’t depending on no cell phones, Networks, things generally or any person!

ESPECIALLY ME! But!

I’ll-expect-my-Turrets-friends – TO KEEP ON CURSIN’!***

“THE BUDDHA IS YOUR GRAMPA, AND HERE’S WHAT HE SAYS!”~ hugs & kisses©️

“THE BUDDHA IS YOUR GRAMPA, AND HERE’S WHAT HE SAYS!” a poem Tuesday:

“We all wanna be happy, in a place not meant for happy;

We all wanna go HOME, when-we’re-trying-to-escape!” said Grandpappy.

We all wanna be safe, in a perilous place,

And we’re running – to nowhere – running-our NOWHERE RACE!

So, can you cheer up – and tell your Lover it’s all OK?

Can you overlook – all the horrors? and all the decay?

Death! Disease! Suffering! Dirt!

And those that love you (and you love)? You-don’t-want-anyone-HURT!!

What – do you do? You smile – and laugh;

You comfort the sick-and-weak! and give them a bath!

Do you point to a Heaven, that’s not really there?

Or-do you offer some comfort – and dignity – with care?

Do you listen to preachers? Do you rely on “healers?”

Do you accept the promises – of all-The-Double-Dealers?

What do you do? What do you do?

Is there a strategy? To-undo your “Blue?”

Where do you turn? How hard do you cry?

Who-have-you-disappointed now? with-your-efforts? You sigh!

You look up; you look out;

You look inward – and-see-NO-turn-about!

You HOLD – you-hold-on – TO SOMEONE? who will,

When MOST WILL AVOID, YOUR HUG, KISS or TRILL,

When you sing a sad-happy song, about yearning and desire,

And think you can lose-yourself – and escape all this mire?

Here’s an ocean! It’s churning! Yes, it’s dangerous and uncertain,

And ALONE(?) without ship (?) Do-you-see-your-final-curtain,

As you’re bouncing around – hit by wave after wave:

Up, up you go! (pause) and then down – to The Grave?

Can you spot some sure ship? which can cut through the waves?

Called: “SMILING LOVE CUDDLES!” for-the-noblest-of-knaves!!

🙂 – Which we ALL ARE – so drop – your pretenses and airs,

And smile, pretty stupidly, AND SING! Yes, we (DO) cares!

The song’s-not-so-important! but TRY to make it HAPPY,

And SING, FOR ALL YOU’RE WORTH, and remember grandpappy,

Who tried, tried his best – to comfort-and-fill-you-up,

And said: “I ain’t got much, but I got me this cup!

And I-will fill-it-up as-much-as-I-can,

And we’ll-sip-on-it-together! – and-give-some-to-our-fellow-man!” 🙂
