And the Beat Goes On…………..

 

Family2010002

When opinions reek of danger and

Outlooks collide,

When bias hisses,

When judgment derides,

When prejudice misses

The mark,

It is the absence of “Hark”,

The dark temptation to seekers of Truth.

Alle heil der abend

As last light fails

And discourse galls

The light of Reason.

And feeds on

The mindless nod of

A thousand, million heads.

Shall we do this cries the headman

Sure; whatever.

And then arrives

An alternate view

To an optimistic few.

And a rosier future

Prevails.

As autumn brings a withering reminder

Of thoughtless, irretrievable syllables

This new Ship sails

To sites and sounds unknown.

A few have grown

And risen above the moan

Of grieving masses.

Life as must, moves on.

ANY EXCUSE FOR A RHYME.

 

How many millions are in a trillion?

How many leaves in a forest?

How many souls exist in forever?

How many came before us?

Where is it written?’Where are the answers?

Where is the heavenly Chorus?

When did the Big Bang Beget the beginning?

Is the answer there before us?

What if I told you I knew all along?

What if you held a Thesaurus?

A new interrogative might have an answer

Or perhaps it would simply bore us.

 

 

 

BUFFALO BILL SHOOS A FLY AND A GNAT WITH A SINGLE SWAT

BUFFALO BILL SHOOS A FLY AND A GNAT WITH A SINGLE SWAT

 

On display for all to see who were able,

”It is I”

Said the natty, gnat, gnat on the nose of the fly

Who was perched on the nose of an irritable guy; “Take that”.

And Buffalo Bill, he swatted away

At the fly on his nose,

And the gnat (there he goes),

As his world went awry, said “goodbye”.

 

And Buffalo Bill with tie in hand

Completed the Windsor knot.

“handsome is as handsome does”

(He loved this tie a lot),

 

Except for the spot

Where the fly had lit

(Didn’t miss that fly one little bit)

 

So happy he was that the fly was gone.

The gnat by the way was again In the way.

And the hand of the man went SWAT once again

And returned to the glass for one last view

Perfecting the knot said “Look at you

My…

You are a handsome man.”
