Perfect excuse procrastination
its the newest epidemic in this facebook nation
some of you need a vacation
so you can put on your facebook
hey every one have a look
My life here is an open book
I'll tell you everything you want to know
look at my wall its all there to show
My friends list its gonna grow
And now we all live in a device
sit around and only eat white rice
telling every one your pic looks nice

telling every one your pic looks nice
easily a red flag especially if said twice
was it fried green tomatoes's bee charmer
who said dungarees don't make you a farmer

sure takes a lot to pay for fresh lettuce or kale
a front loader tractor to move a round hay bale
could roll it down the hill but can't turn it over
thinking about a plow horse in a field of clover

would make a raised bed with room for carrots
but the cat claims he was ratted out by parrots
quoting owners of homemade lemonade stands
complaining profits are down in the bad lands

complaining profits are down in the bad lands
chippin away the surplus of supply & demand
the rich get richer while the poor pay the price
extra slice of cheddar for shareholders to dice

now don't forget to budget in the ransom
50,000 a month looks mighty handsome
small print is hidden to disguise the deal
extra lobbyin change on a cell phone bill

extra lobbyin charge on a cell phone bill
bread & butter pickles substituted for dill
a dollar more for sweet potato home fries
chance of rolling Yahtzee in only two tries

using the language of the notch cutter gang
the local cowboys all up in that street slang
took the pump handle's copper ground wires
to melt with large pennies in pirate camp fires

driftwood spirits planed a ban on sun tan lotion
where redwood lined creeks run into the ocean

where redwood lined creeks run into the ocean
destination waves singing her powerful emotion
distortion clouds disappear into a clear blue sky
as all unanswered questions gently float on by

basking in redemption forgiveness and love
as the world spins uncontrollably from above
despite the many problems & bro ken he arts
celebrating the power of love and fresh starts

celebrating the power of love and fresh starts
harnessing the energy using rescued golf carts
reworked with regenerative breaks and solar sails
wisk broom inner tube wheels and magnetic kite tails

reclaiming lost fishing lures and lead sinker weights
doing double duty trolling with artificial or live baits
using manta ray vision and some vacuum cleaner hoses
several sea horses certifying the hound dogs' prognosis

determined to find the source of a gilded goose feather
kept by a museum in an antique tobacco pouch of leather
owned by a prospector donated by his daughter Heather
a noble nominee for claiming climate is related to weather

a noble nominee for claiming climate is related to weather
on the trail of what happened with a silver metal detector
through the junk yard over rolling hills pass a fence post
came to a fork in the road said open eyes see the most

looking back in disbelief figured nothing changed
rereading a poets line funny how it all rearranged
kicking an old washing machine washing clothes
chasing Truth chasing Fiction down Rabbit holes

chasing Truth chasing Fiction down Rabbit holes
too small for ground hogs or gophers must be moles
under the corner stones and punch pads of foundations
holding up hall trees draped in paper mache fabrications

flying buttresses of candle wax drippings on pinatas
multi color flags around the world in sail boat regattas
a scenic detour to easy street where maps do the math
turning a giant clam shell into a pretty good bird bath

turning giant clam shells into a pretty good bird bath
mind traveling memories down interstate mad - dash
going back in time to rediscover sheer self-ignorance
on the road of selfish pride and reluctant persistence

dig'n deep, going searching for youth
outside looking in from a photo booth
snapshots of mystery to mastermind
whats lost is found now seeks to find

whats lost is found now seeks to find
the same but different you know in an instant
if it is the thing you wish to bring
to banish the darkness when life's at its awfullest
here comes the sun a new dawn is done
the sunset still far in the offing

the sunset still far in the offing
quiet except for some coughing
caterpillars by a babbling brook
barking spiders in a story book

the wing flaps of a tiger butterfly flitter
Sylvester typing in all CAPS on twitter
lemon drop jelly beans may be too bitter
still better than an orchid with gold glitter

reminds me of cheese cake without crust
bumper stickers saying California or bust
so still tie up the mules even ones you trust
highway 49 laundries found tons of gold dust

highway 49 laundries found tons of gold dust
18 wheeler ton hauls of old recycled worn rust
back before the sun shined in a homeless land
even before the demand outweighed the plans

from purple people land to the deep angry blue
all the way across the tip top of a drop off view
why time could never feel an empty void glow
came real close that time at a starlight show

now washin' clothes it just ain't the same without ya
stuck on heavy load wash and rinse cycle Nostalgia

stuck on heavy load wash and rinse cycle Nostalgia
pockets with fishing weights and onions from Vidalia
picking water cress along the river bank while ogling
found a free fish net and wicker lawn chair googling

a party at the near earth object observatory reckoned
to take off a half day was far out at ten mile per second
so they all loaded into a woody an headed for the coast
picnicked by the lava flows with marshmallows to toast

picnicked by the lava flows with marshmallows to toast
tupelo honey pancakes dine with stingless bees for a roast
after the feast, the chance of survival decreases down to zero
those who gave more only to lose their lives are the real heroes

took a right turn down memory lane
as sun shined down without any rain
memories from yesterday taste good
salmon & veggies smoke cedarwood

cigarettes down to the nub
hot coal burns the throat
harsh words sound worse spoke
than the meaning could confer, if the plank
the paddle of the canoe had not been lost

the paddle of the canoe had not been lost
abort the mission and go tally up the loss
don't keep ur head down too long though
the stronger the wave the harder we row

from an unbearable undertow to Great Success
guess that really depends on how much we rest
down for the count now it may look like a failure
never give up keep pressing on toward the mark

never give up keep pressing on toward the mark
got no choice really not ready for the art
of the slow fade, the sharp blade, the koolaid sayonara
sorrows follow where we may wander on this earth
a sense of wonder sound of thunder sustains us till rebirth

a sense of wonder sound of thunder sustains us till rebirth
digging deep inside soul searching for relentless inner worth
from the crack of dawn to the last sunset streak'n shoot'n star
at night time day dreaming far from lonely island drifting way-way too far

putting mink oil on an Old Scar for sheer beauty
double-dip chocolate vanilla ice cream tutti frutti
out back easy street hammock on mild summer
nostalgic speakers make sense of light thunder

nostalgic speakers
make sense of light thunder
in our heyday
we pondered in wonder
if we could predict
when the storm would chunder
and counted the seconds
between lightning and thunder

counted the seconds between lightning and thunder
in between the second hand & the minute of wonder
discovered the patience how it breaks down in time
missing out on The Moment to relive it in my mind

way before the Lightning & thunder
was a familiar place way out yonder
can't put my finger on it so it seems
emotionless journey changin scenes

Emotionless journey changing scenes
Behind the velvet curtain
Actors faces wooden say their lines
Though their feet be hurting
Stuck in the prop too small shoes
They mince and prance in kirtles
Point their painful tiny toes
Maidens wait On courting
Handsome swains arrive and claim
Kudos for their persons

Behind the velvet curtain
hides the most uncertain
reality play for the ages
actors of life on stages

blowing out their candles like fools
sitting here alone on wooden stools
replaying their minds Fun & Sorrow
lost youth for yesterdays tomorrow

lost youth
for yesterdays tomorrows
dusty yearbooks faded photos
laughed at by your sons and daughters

who never knew you yearned and lusted
trusted your own supple body
gave your smooth cheek to their father
now they wonder why you bothered

dusty yearbooks faded photos
neighborhood memories atow
a tight line walking bare feet
over an entire Ocean DEEP

don't look down it's too far to fall
a blessed man already has it all
throwing the peace sign 2 forget
those blank experiences to regret

A blessed man already has it all
top of a meek earth standing tall
before the rising walk and crawl
super speed blast hold on tight

Spontaneous Combination Cold
Down this long and endless road
Leaving behind a long heavy load
A different truth from a fiction sold
