my hair I had to rinse, with so much dust on this road,
doesn't matter the load I'm trying to value add
tis a whirlwind of doubt in an economy so sad
I find I'm giving friendly greeting to young yard toads
carefullyi let the natural world to me be shown
empathetic consideration to smaller things ain't bad

I could easily stretch this Browningesk layout of thought
Yet what is the point with these mismatched socks
seems to me as a kind of, "outside the box"
these days all in clear hard plastic, those things you bought
tis this a good thing or tis this not
like a school of hard knocks

(sometimes you just know what to say)

like a school of hard knocks
I have been taught the rough way
to appreciate the little things
I may take for granted
finding the good fortune
of tomorrow is its own blessing
and the good reward is
a day lived well

a day well lived
balances on my nose
like the worst day which taught me so flippin much.
Strike me down day of reckoning
nothing feels better than your worst imagining
of a day filled with sorrow, pain, agony
throw in despair.
So. I survived.....why the heck does anything matter?
Just because it was worse rather than better.

Just because it was worse rather than better
Plenty of surprises along the way
Until there's really nothing left to say
It's all been said - and the rest!
Some kind of drivel endurance test?
Now it's just 'blah blah blah!'
Like a left-over pile of vomit in a taxi car
After a reckless & debauched night on the town
Regurgitated kebabs & chicken pieces won't bring you down

bring you down to a deeper level
touching base with the center
feeling the connection with everything
and with nothing

bring you down below ground
where all is a darkened womb
finding roots to strengthen you
growing shoots of new bloom

Regurgitated kebabs & chicken pieces
won't bring you down
nor will the skin of wild boar
cooked on a spit
with dos equiis and fish head soup
with squid salad, rice and fava beans
platanos and coconut milk
and barbequed ginuea pig
on a stick in papaya sauce
which they call 'wee-wee's' in the andes
because thats what they say
right before they snap their necks
nope, none of that will bring you down,
though a few shots
of homebrewed 'cana'
on a four thousand meter volcano
will spew you to the bottom
with your head up your ash
quicker than you can say "que?"

( sorry we, though i have no idea what that links to. wrong thread?)

growing shoots of new bloom quicker than you can say que,
the dendrites in my brain fire electrical charges controlling me,
what a wonder of miracles this body called human,
I hope to understand even more someday

I hope to understand even more someday
I'm amazed at what's out there to learn.
I hoped to be done with my schooling come May
No suck luck - in the Fall I return.
My life is filled with books and essays,
my time is consumed completely with study
No time is left for any mindless forays
I musn't let my future become too muddy.
When all is said and done I will make them so proud
I will know even more than my teachers!
(though I know at that statement you will just laugh out loud)
I'll be on the field as they yell from the bleachers.

What bleachers? Bleachers are meant to be alone
in the moonlite. In the middle of the day, somebody
is running to prove they are way better than he, she, me.
Who really needed bleachers other than the blind?
Who really cared other than a hunted deer?
How fast you ran and jumped...how with wasted strength
you got away from proving yourself, the world
is always wrong according to private codes.
so what is right is deafness, blindness. Actively.

knowing that even one's own pain can paralyze
absorbing the whole worlds pain
is a feat I'm unlikely to master
my heart breaks for those that see and hear
living lives of utter despair bombarded by
the individual cries joining together
as humanity screams for a justice unknown

(oh boy C~ you opened the door for me this morning...)

as humanity SCREAMS for a justice unknown,
domination, revelation, exclamation, relaxation,
dishing it out cause I can and wanna really bad,
moan for me baby and hit the high notes for a tad,
lick, stick. click, slick~
girls like me just have more fun-
hava victim so I gotta run...

humanity screams for a justice unknown
the bathwater needed changing and the baby was thrown
leaders triangulate the next hope to disown
as god sits dismayed on hold on the phone

false rapturized ideologues on TV declare
self serving recipes for the path of repair
the heretic prays on his knees in despair
for a premature end to the tragicomic nightmare

bombarded by images brought live in HD
talking heads on the idiot box drool and decree
'you cannot be free until you stop thinking and follow me'
'til we annihilate the lesser thans, we will never be free'

the heretic wandering the street on his own
through the crumbling wreckage of the demilitarized zone
searching for the ringing in his head alone
picks up the reciever on a forgotten pay phone

the heretic pauses, and then says 'hello'
the voice 'says this is god, but i guess that you know'
'you are the one to whom i must bestow'
'you gotta get it together before the place does blow'

'go to the asylum and fire the warden'
'stop killing each other and find ways to pardon'
'disspell the money changers out of the garden'
'bury your fear, empathize, and work in common'

'Bury your fear, empathize, and work in common'
Find your humanity
For without it you are nobody
Just an empty shell
Does not bode well
Or a robot
With no heart to impart
And no soul to touch
No joy, no salvation
Emptiness...

give me one more reason to kill
off this fire burning inside
knowing in my heart
he's taking me for a ride

to be the one
to make you squirm
you narcissistic little worm

longing to hear you
although I seethe
say those three little words
"I can't breathe"

(lol~ I love it!)

I can breathe
freedom at last
bondage to the machine
removed from my shoulders
and set on someone else for a while
now gimmie some Ben and Jerry's
Phish food in the carton
yummy in my tummy
gotta love ice cream
almost as good as sex

Almost as good as sex
Is what the chef said
But I'd rather have the Italian meal
And the real deal
Than have that worm in my bed
Sticky fingers
Wet patches in boxers
Never matches expectations of romance
So forget about that pointless, sordid dance
Just give me the food
Not really being rude
But for him it's "Pasta la vista, Baby!"
Cut the fake "I love you's" to tagliatelle ribbons
Just walk out the door - and I don't mean maybe!"

Yeah I love you but I'm so done baby
done with your gloom, done with your doom,
done with regret and what you just can't get
open the windows and let in the air
kiss earth on the mouth and feel free to dare
to accept this wondrous gift as it's given
the joy is here now and life's for the living

The joy is here now and life's for the living
you've got much more to lose than you think
One quick misstep and your balance eludes you
It all can disappear in a blink.
Have faith that the fortunes of others will follow
Perhaps you'll be next in that ever long line
Truth and wisdom often go forth hand in hand
Look, look don't you see it? Behold: it's a sign!
Today arrived wondrous and sunny and delightful
the gifts of nature arrived long before we did
Let's not waste it or squander it or sell it or ignore it
Forget Pandora's box - - just grab hold and toss the lid!

(and now for something creepy- pre Halloween)

forget Pandora's box, just grab hold and toss the lid
releasing your true inner self rarely seen by the world,
the part hidden deep inside yourself even you are afraid of
that monster lurking behind the curtains of our flesh,
we all know is there but never allowed to set free from its own container
where evil thoughts emotions gestures sickness and hatred lives,
down in the empty jar scraped to only residue left behind
reminding us we were once uncivilized beasts survival of the fittest,
where all darkness and creepy things share their mysteries in the shadows
and never let the light of day say hello until it is too late,
turning it into the mists of midnight,
calling out for our souls...

(something beautiful no matter the time of year)

turning it into the mists of midnight, calling out for our souls
Feeding on the lost and wandering, spiraling out of control
Trick or treat if you may, but don't leave me uttering words
to myself... day in, day out; hopelessly aloof in this world

I have a Cinderella costume, although my hair's dark brown
Shit, to tell you the truth, I like the dress, but I'd rather be a clown
for Halloween, but it often seems, I turn into one all year long
I extended these lines to fit my needs, now, let me hear your song

( just realized I wasn't restricted to eight, but I had nothing else more to say...)

how you bled on the streets and met your defeats and stood up and said you were wrong
achieve the blessing to know how to be useful i value more than i belong
to look death in the face and not blink is the thing i had to learn to be strong

I had to learn to be strong,
not like drink nor iron,
but from within my self,
finding courage to see me,
just like I am today,
not in the mirror,
but how I am veiwed,
by others in their minds,
in their hearts,
in their souls,
that is who I am
and how I will
be remembered
when I am gone.
What will you be
remembered for?

What will you be
remembered for?
taken on that awful day
with so many others
for no reason at all
world insanity raining down
all you did is go to work
like everyone else
yes, you are remembered
for dying on that awful day
but you know
you are remembered
in the broken hearts
of your own who are
missing you everyday
