Trips with kids: Limerick 

Leave a comment

I love summers with children transporting
On trips to theme parks adoring
But when they start to whine
About how much longer the time
It makes me prefer waterboarding

To Be a Child In Summer

Leave a comment

Summer sun so hot and burning
Doesn’t slow the children yearning
To play and laugh and swim all day
Until their heads they slowly lay
Down to rest and dream all night
In morning swim again they might
So careless, free and joyful they are
While adults toil to pay the house and car
Oh to be a child innocent and free
Even for one more summer’s eve
Of hotdogs, watermelon and swimming
Adulthood is nice but childhood is living

Summer in Fresno Limerick

Everyone loves the summer
No other season is funner
But here in Fresno
Where it’s an inferno
We sizzle like bacon as we suffer

Sawyer’s Birthday Poem

Sawyer Steven
My little heathen
Playful sweet mischievous

Happy Birthday
Presents, cake and play
Till you are delirious

We love you so
Always on the go
Ever bringing joy to us

We’ll hold your hand
Grow into a man
And live your life prosperous

It’s Over Now

Leave a comment

In your youth
You fled the noose
The Pretty Noose
That sought your youth

But years went on
You sang your song
We loved your song
And cheered you on

The noose came calling
While darkness falling
Your body falling
As fans were calling

All quiet now
So take a bow
Your final bow
It’s over now

Embrace the Darkness

Leave a comment

Embrace the darkness
It ate at your soul
Let it give you rest
And fill that gaping hole

The dark will swallow the pain
Lift you from this fallen world
Though we’ll never be the same
Fly away with black wings furled

Your work here is complete
Thank you for enduring torment
To sign songs so bitter sweet
Rage and pain for our enjoyment

We drank from your sour cup
Tasting the anger and sorrow
We savored every last drop
Thirsty we’ll have to continue tomorrow

But you can rest at last
Long deserved and well earned
Finally pain, anger and depression passed
Embrace the dark for which you yearned

Fell on Black Days by Soundgarden (Chris Cornell)

The Man was a gifted poet, musician, artist

Fell on Black Days

Whatsoever I’ve feared has come to life
Whatsoever I’ve fought off became my life
Just when everyday seemed to greet me with a smile
Sunspots have faded and now I’m doing time
Now I’m doing time
‘Cause I fell on black days
I fell on black days

Whomsoever I’ve cured, I’ve sickened now
And whomsoever I’ve cradled, I’ve put you down
I’m a search light soul they say
But I can’t see it in the night

I’m only faking when I get it right
When I get it right

‘Cause I fell on black days
I fell on black days

How would I know
That this could be my fate?
How would I know
That this could be my fate? Yeah

Uh, uh, uh
Uh, uh, uh
Uh, uh, uh

So what you wanted to see good
Has made you blind
And what you wanted to be yours
Has made it mine

Don’t you lock up something
That you wanted to see fly
Hands are for shaking
No, not tying, no, not tying

I sure don’t mind a change
I sure don’t mind a change
Yeah, I sure don’t mind, sure don’t mind a change
I sure don’t mind a change

‘Cause I fell on black days
I fell on black days

How would I know
That this could be my fate?
How would I know
That this could be my fate?

How would I know
That this could be my fate?
How would I know
That this could be my fate?

I sure don’t mind a change
