|Father, I sat beside your bed that day
a chance that I might somehow say
something to make you proud of me
something which would set me free
of bonds I thought were mine
that somehow I had set in time
not knowing how or why I’d done some crime
and rejected by the family tree
why did you all do this to me
why did you allow this to happen to me
and you looked up at me that day
and shook my hand off from the clasp that I had set
while held your hand in mine and yet
you pushed it aside
a part of me had already died
you could not kill more
there was nothing left in store
you’d all taken it over the years
there simply were no more tears
that I was able or cared to shed
even though I knew you soon would be dead
you never once acknowledged me as being worthy
you all allowed me to feel so God damned dirty
and the final words you said to me were set
in concrete so I could never ever forget
“I’m glad you are the way you are.”
No, you knew me not, you were always too far
from me to know what I was or was to be
the person who sat and tried to hold your hand you could not see
not you, nor your God damned sister, mother, father could never see
“I’m glad you are the way you are.”
How high did you set the God damned bar?
A child born of thy seed to thee?
I now demand you set me free.
You never ever knew me.
No, my mind is changed and this day I choose to set myself free
Free from the God damned family tree
from from it and free from thee.

|President Flag Desecration Barack Hussein Obama today has issued orders to our troops and other American groups providing assistance to the Haitians in Haiti to pull down the American flag because he doesn’t wish to irritate other countries.This jerk will not wear a flag lapel pin and has not since 911 because he thinks it reflects too much patriotism.
He has refused two flyovers where patriotism was the primary issue and blamed it on religion. Yet those flyovers have been going on for over twenty years at both of those events and approved by every president before him.He gives the crotch salute at every ceremony where others are placing their hands over their hearts.You have to understand that we have a president who hates this country. He hates its past. He hates its military. And he hates capitalism. He will do all he can to bring this country down and force it to become a third world country. He is a 1st class Chicago bred liar and will do all he can to destroy our constitution which he despises.
He is a Marxist. He readily admits that his chosen friends in college were Marxists. He has openly called himself a progressive. Progressive is just another word for socialism.This is a man who hung the Venezuela flag in his campaign headquarters and is best buddies with Chavez. And Chavez remarked that Obama is further left that he personally is. Further left than Chavez???? We have a president further left than Chavez?
You and I are the only things standing in his way. You and I and a lot of proud Americans can defeat his wishes. But we have to stand up to him. He is a Chicago bully who stated in one speech that if you were against his plans he would “call you out” that is Chicago school boy bully talk.
It’s time America, if you want to have an America left in a few years we need to stop this man now.
Best wishes for a good day and a better tomorrow.
|A cowboy from Texas attends a social function where Barack Obama is trying to gather support for his Health Plan. Once he discovers the cowboy is from President Bush’s home area, he starts to belittle him by talking in a southern drawl and single syllable words.As he was doing that, he kept swatting at some flies that were buzzing around his head. The cowboy says, “Y’all havin’ some problem with them circle flies?”
Obama stopped talking and said, “Well, yes, if that’s what they’re called, but I’ve never heard of circle flies.”
Well, sir,” the cowboy replies, “Circle flies hang around ranches.. They’re called circle flies because they’re almost always found circling around the back end of a horse.”
“Oh,” Obama replies as he goes back to rambling.
“No, sir,” the cowboy replies, “I have too much respect for the citizens of this country to call their president a horse’s ass.”
“That’s a good thing,” Obama responds and begins rambling on once more.
After a long pause, the cowboy, in his best Texas drawl says, “Hard to fool them flies, though.”
Best wishes for a good day and a better tomorrow.
|I LOVE A SIMPLE SLEEPY CITY STREET
I love a simple sleepy city street
one tree lined
side walk framed
to me it’s just so very awesome neat
to stroll alone in streetlight semi-darkness without designed
plan or in anxious upset thought complained
or with time or plans in scattered mental shattered shards.

|HAVE YOU EVER MET A NAKED OTTER?
Have you ever met a naked otter
one standing silent by the sea
standing silent in deep thought
while sipping a cup of Earl Grey tea
and with it shared a cookie
he just had the three
one for him, one for me
and a cookie for the sea
for a long lost friend
who, like him, loved Earl Grey Tea.

|I’M FEELING DEPRESSED TONIGHT
I’m feeling depressed
just not somehow right tonight
you might say I’m flipping stressed
and my mind is slipping down a hill, in a running shadow fight
it whirls, turns, looks here and there
then stops suddenly to simply sit and stare
as though in a trance while but in complete confusion
focused on nothing but trapped in a total profusion
of odd thoughts springing up to join and meet
bouncing off one another not stopping to simply greet
no conversation started, opened, made then finished
a friend left and drove north tonight
family, dogs, all gone from the neighbor’s sight
ah, they forgot to turn out a light
tv programs in homes unfiltered running
as usual remarkably stupidly stunning
so I’ll walk the dogs and duck rain drops
and hope the cold breeze rushing past momentarily stops
until I get the simple task completed done
then sleep I will and wake I hope to once more view the morning sun.

|MY NAME IS SAMSON
Oh what a foolish man in mid-life crises I turned out to be
how embarrassing to the family I surely must have been
for God’s knows I know that thinking thoughts like mine were sin
Israel’s final judge of twelve flirted the rumors all said
and you, Delilah, for payment almost then in hand sought me out
while I in lust was weakened so
and thought only then with lower extremity
thus I found myself before my God
that I was soon to be
so captivated by
so seduced by
so enraptured by
my beautiful, alluring Delilah, a witch on land and on the sea
a whore who for 30 lbs of silver became
for me, my barber and a force majeure
with gentle touch you acted poseur
a harlot learned well, no not any cheap amateur
who with fortune held close in hand
met first we did in town Timnath
you undressed me, caressed me, then led me to your bath
anointed me with scented oil
and mounting me you moaned, thrust and did toil
well versed to challenge such a weak mind as mine
I fell so easy, so very easily, easily I fell in line
a hungry man, empty, searching
who tragic had lost his love
a young bride taken murdered, burned, my lovely morning dove
by Philistines who then one-thousand met the jawbone of my ass
in judgment, for a judge I be, I burned their crops and killed in mass
they, in turn, put a lofty bounty on my head
how upsetting this was at first to me
to view the posters hung with horrible pictures for all to see
they didn’t look at all like me
my strength of will they knew not the source
the source of power with which I kept it fed
but they did all hold the knowing result in dread
and could not approach or challenge me
for fearfully knew that with a whack I’d leave them quite dead
leave them for the birds of carrion
who upon their rotting bodies would feed
but you my beautiful-horrible Delilah
I was so gentle led
peeled gapes by you were gentle fed
while you stroked and wound seven braids of hair
then with a knife you cut it there
and my strength fell cut by cut to the ground
then you called the guards who found me sleeping sound
who gouged out my eyes and left me blinded to grind their grain
but my hair began to grow while I suffered in constant pain
then foolishly chose they to lead me out in bold parade
tied to pillars I prayed for strength and Godly aide
repenting all to him which birthed my soul
to kill those who surrounded me and who laughed that day
then with a growl I forced the pillars to begin to sway
they say three thousand lives I took that day
ended there along with mine
beneath the stones carved wide and tall
that fell and crushed and killed us all.
