PART 20!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Today an icy rain misted and sprinkled
slushy ice m aking thing glisening
in icey sheen slippery, failing
unable to walk without persition
grey skys birds at my window
begging please please please

AND So Today
The bird cafe
is now
OPEN
we have seed and feed
pinon and onion
bugs and slugs
dried mealy worms too
and some cool blue stuff
with a lot of fluff
that looks like goo
we got hunny doo
sunflower seeds
stuff that looks like mead
necter to sip on
and perches to sing their songs
The bird cafe
opened today
and the first ones there
came in with a flare
some fox sparrows did dare
and feed they did
and the others that hide
Looke on with great stare
some were alone others in pairs
like they all had the need
to despratly feed
then there came suet
woodpecker knew it
The Downies were first
the Red bills did thirst
Pelated also did show
They always know
when someones looking
they disapear while you are booking
tit mouse were there
combing there hair
and soon it was one big bash
with such a larg stash
Rufus Toies and morning doves
flew all around and hovered above
carolina chickadees chatter about
Eastern blue jays come to tout.
The Bird Cafe
It open today
NO SQURILS ALOUD!!!!

Happy winter everyone

another winter of nothing real
another winter trying to feel
another winter gone by again
another winter of looking at the end
Another winter knocks at my door
another winter of being bord
Another winter of feeding birds
another winter so ubserb
Another winter that will pass
Another winter of smokin grass
Another winter to find the light
Another winter to make things right
another winter of snow
aonther winter of no where to go
Another winter of silent words
another winter of gone to the birds
ANother winter to remind me
that in the winter im not free
stuck in the house
with a wild mouse

WATING FOR SUNSHINES GLOW
but Happy Dec 21 anyway

all I want is blue sky and sunshine
I want every living thing to be safe and warm
I feed the birds, cats and water the squirrils
I can't spell as I age

I want a porch
an water to see
no neighbors
just looking for peace

See those circles
Round the Maples
At their bases
Black dirt shows
Amidst the dirty
Snow and ice slicks
Roots of trees
Suck deep no cold

It was just
There

tell me how to be happy
I have no boss
I hate winter
I like Canadians

the moon ruins my mood
I can't stop gritting my teeth
can't think of a reason to get dressed
don't get any thing done

*applies foot*
to chain saw body
and
*gently pulls cord*
tries not
to wake
the tree spirit
tongue
sap
branch
wood
of the pine
that I have targeted
for my use

i just want to sleep
i can't get any energy
to do anything
my kids are up
making a mess
i can't move
i must confess
the desperation has ahold of me
too tired to clean
let's just burn everything
and start over.

Im back im back to my old thread
back to my winter bread
back in my own little world
thank you for them poems girls
Its been a good spring and summer
never happend upon a bummer
made my money and
drank my honey
The workers gone
its a silent song
The farm does sleep
there was plenty to reap
but its all gone for the year
its another year
another beer
another tear
empty fear
im back on here
waiting for the big cold
to remind me im getting old
getting ready for the big chill
when the snow is down and all is still
so im back
i got the nack
and several months of wood stacked
Im still confused
but its such amused
I still hug trees
it sets me free
and im still rambling on
thats how it will be until the winters gone

well its official
West Virginia has the highest amount
of overdoses
and death by over dose
in the whoe US OF A
and so a poem is born

so little man you tired of grass
cocain goofballs and hash
someone pretending to be your best friend
intorduces you to me miss heroin
so you think you got the spritual nack
once im in you try and get me off your back
at first I will make you beam
then put you in a dream
I will make you think you see the light
but soon you'll know somethin an't right
the cramps and pain will drive you insain
you'll need to be stuck
so you don't feel like you've been hit by a truck
you'll cheat and you'll steal
to make another deal
you'll sell you mother
just for another
Hit of me
your not free
who'd a thought you'd become such a disgrace
and end up a product of poppy seed waist
you'll relized what a monster you've grown
and swear to leave me alone
you'll try and try and try
but you'll relize its a lie
then you'll let me into your heart
and you will be mine untill death do us part

Ok a heroin poem think ill call it miss heroin

Ok another cold night
wood stove a blazzing
see ya

hi ya all
Good to be back in the old house again
been a good summer
and lots of things ill be
refecting on,
and rambling about
will be some of those
things that happend
to me this summer
This fist thing I want to
talk about is how one thing just
leads to the next.
apparently there some show on TV
named the Walking dead
everyones into it
I don't have TV
I don't know

So this Tree falls down on the
road just as this show is about
to come on TV
Well that old Oak tree took out
the power line and a couple of poles
shut the whole place down power wise
so every one in this hollar
all came out all complainin and such
all about how there too many trees
to close to the power line
in this ol holar somethins got to be done
and now they cant watch
there walking dead show
life just suck for them
so of course someone got to call
the poeple in charge
about an hour goes by
and some guy in a white
pick up truck show s
up checks it out
bla bla bla bla
finally after three hours there back up
and runnin
but they all missed there
walking dead show
so the next day one of them
goes out side and starts cuttin
his tree down cause its to close
to the power line
all I know you give a man
a chain saw in West Virginia
and you given him compleat power
well then this lumber guy just happend
to be hangin around and said hey
Ill give you money for that tree
and that guy decided to cut a few more
trees for money
well the dude up the holler heard this
he came up and said well hell you can
have all my trees back up there in the holler
and so they came and cut all the trees
down right up to my land
50 acers gone clear cut butchered
not a tree left standing
all for money
any ways when you take out a forest
well theres critters that live there
where are they supose to go?
well they all showed up in my
woods and this brings me to
my next poem

The Bear Breakin

I did come home late one night
to find on my porch a terable sight
my front screen door was ripped right out
my first thought a burgler no doubt
when I looked in side
I just wanted to hide
my home was in a horible mess
it put me in such distress
my living room was scrabled
my kitchen ramsacked in shambles
Holes im my walls
I thought who'd of had the balls
my food was all gone
some strung out on the lawn
who ever it was drank all my beer
and all the soda's my friend had left here.
all though the house was rearanged
I found it strange
that they left the weed and the money
but took all the honey
There was food wrapers everywhere
I just thought this was not fare
Why would they do this
I was getting really pissed
my neighbor suddenly showed up
and I said what up
and he said
i almost shot it in the head
whats you talkin about Fred
he said "son where you been
your the victim of a bear break in"
when I heard this
I stopped being pissed
I felt sorry for that bear
its not fare
you see his home is gone
they did him wrong
they cut all the trees
where he was once free
his home was dystroyed
so he deployed
to my woods
it clearly understood
So thats is what to expect
a bear in a house equals train wreack
but I said you can stay
as long as you keep at bay
and now he lives here
once in a while we share a beer

Ok and there you have it
have a good one youall see ya

Helo lonely poetryroom
a little dark corner on POF
is there any one left
it use to hum
seems almost done
but there are a few new ones
to write a lyric or two
when they are blue

Ok heres something
I like to call it my core beleifs
Go placidly in the noise and hast
remember what peace there is in silince
as far as posible, without surrender
be on good terms with all persons
Speak your truth quietly and clearly
listen to others
even the dull and the ignorant
they to have their story
Avoid loud aggresive person
for they can be a vexation upon the spirit
if you compare your self to others
you may become vain and bitter
for always there will be greater
and lesser persons than your self
enjoy your achievments as well
as your plans
Keep intrested in you career
how ever humble
it is a real possession
in the changing fortunes of time
exsersize caution in your buesiness afairs
for the world if full of trickery
but let this not blind you
to what virtue there is
many person strive for high ideals
and everwhere life is full of heroism
Be yourself especally do not freinge affection
neather be cynical about love
for in the face of all
aridity and disenchantment
it is perennial as the grass
take kindly the counsel of the years
gracefully surrendering the things of youth
nuture strength of spirit
to shield you in sudden misfortune
but do not distress yourself with imaginings
many fears are born
of fatugue and loneliness
beyond a wholesome discipline
be gentle with yourself
YOU ARE A CHILD OF THE UNIVERSE
no less than the trees and the stars
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE HERE
and whether or not it is clear to you
the universe is unfolding as it should
therefore be at peace with God
whatever you conceive God to be
whaever your labors and asperations
in the noisy confusion of life
keep peace with your soul
with all its shame ,
drudgery and broken dreams
it is still a beautiful world
Always strive to be happy

Ok there its is
if everone thought this way
there would be no wars
it all would be peace.
Ok see yas PEace OUT

homeless ness
I was homeless
NOt now
but heres somethin
about that
Its called 20lb of rice

Sometime ago found my self
with out a car
all I had was 20 pound of rice
and a hershy bar
walkin down the road feeling nice
with all that rice
People stopped and gave advise
wakin down the road with 20 pounds of rice and a hershy bar
Don't need no car
didnt know where I was goin or how far
when all you have is 20 pounds of rice and a hershy bar
People stopped and stared
because I have such crazy hair
wakin down the road got no car
all I got is 20 pounds of rice and a hershy bar
YOu can put the homless in a home
but its hard to take the homelessness out of the homeless

Hello all
have you ever dreamed about
living off the Grid
Well I did that
for a while
and it had its ups and downs
but it was very very hard
To be totaly self suficiant
Im not off the grid no more
I LIKE IT
any way heres a poem
a song I don't know
its called living off the Grid

Living of the grid living off the grid
that what I did
Had no power or water bill
had my solar set up on the hill
Water from a spring
that sounded like angles sing
I was livin off the grid Livin off the grid
that what I did
No Internet or phone
spent a lot of time alone
Lived that way for many a year
even made my own beer
Lived off a garden and the land
there was no one there to give me a hand
I sat by my self
in my natural wealth
I had good health
I had no money
just milk and honey
At times it was good and times it was bad
in 15 years it made me quite sad
I lived off the Grid
thats what I did

Ok there you have it
Peace out people
don't spent to much time under a steeple

wow its summer in June
so long I have loomed
was thinken about momorial day
so here's what I have to say
June 28 2016 here a poem
that i bring about momorial day
its not what you think,

Mormorial Day

Today is momorial day
all the men and woman out to play
to remember those that kept them free
so they can be what they want to be
Is it good some understood
Is it bad because there are those that have been had
Its a loud day
Lawn mowers on parade
spueing toxic fumes
Burning exhast fume loom
Its a Holiday
To honor those thad did'nt run away
we all sit around and drink our beer
talking about the latest climbing gear
but my eyes are burning
from lawn mowers churning
on this day my ears know no peace
no sound of Canada geese
just the loud drown of lawn mower noise
boys and girls and there toys
Why don't you keep the trees
then all would be free
you really don't need a lawn that big
so many trees cut down do you dig
its ging to be a hot summer
you'll need air condition for your house and Hummer
If you had m ore trees
ther would be a breeze
to cool you down
so your mowers would lay silent without a sound.

Hers one in honor of POF and the wonderful things they like to do with their surprise little changes


Got on my POF
and thought to my self what the F
something not right like it use to be
its getting a lot less free
If i have to start paying for forums
this POF thing will creat such bordom
I was getting to close i see
Its seems to be forbidin teritory
This happens every time
its become sureal and sublime
Who's controling th is show
don't ask me I do not know
I can't see new users
there being a bit of abusers
I have to pay
If I want to play
girlfriends for sale
they'll give you what you want and maybe some tail
they sell the virtual relationships
and inside your brain fantacy trips
no matter how much you pay it will never be real
through a computor screen you can't really feel
So come on become a member
we'll sell you something you can remember
OR NOT

Planet eaters of America

Who are we?
Don't you know ? we are humans you see
Planet eater thats who we are
we came from somewhere else from another star
we came here to earth
so we could give birth
and name our kids Janet
while we eat up the whole planet
They came from a different place
these beings known as the human race
they started at a crawl
then they decided they needed it all
Its the planet eaters
the enviormetal beaters
eating the planet before your eyes
Messing up the water and the skies
We have such a great need
that has turned in to such a great greed
we are the planet eaters
the enviormental beaters
the corprate tweeters
The corupts so called great leaders
Were looking for more planets
made of rock and granets
were looking for some place new
so we can eat it up too

Ok a little envormental protest song/peom.

Thinking about going back to Cali
Back to where I had my palee's
Do I really want to go back
and go live in a shack
The hot springs are still there
but what I heard was all people do is stare
Go hang out like I use to do
under a hot sun and sky blue
Cali tis not the same
I'd have to figure out a new game
start all over again
no job no friend
The heat in the summer and all the fire
makes one weary makes one tire
It like I just want to go back to the past
Dah we all know the past do'nt last
I should just stay in West Virginia
maybe here I will find ya
Should I stay or should I go
hard to say I really don't know
Waiting for a sign
for the clouds to part and a ray of sunshine

go live in a shack
I miss those times
fancy free
just him and me
mind over matter
what did it matter
trying to be
free and twee
breakfast was chess
did not settle for less
than thinking games
and how to stay
fed and warm
away from the swarm
of grey mosquitoes
(craving some Cheetos)
waiting for the time
when we sat
still and warm
and the butterflies swarmed

This about not paying your land taxes and taking it to the limit.

TAX MAN BLUES

well here i am
doing the best I can
I owe nothing to no one
except to one big gun
I'll always Owe the goverment each year
they have a certain way of bringing on the fear
I'm debt free
except for the property owner fee
the tax that never stops
even if you get dragged away by the cops
try not payin and you will see
you lose your land and be living under a tree
They don't care if they are rough
rich or poor their just as tough
They want what is thier's
they say its only fair
if you don't own sh*t
they still want to put you down in the pit
Try not payin your land taxes
The sheriff will show up with guns and axes
I once took it to the limit and did'nt pay my taxes
sure enough those boys showed up with guns and axes
They were thinkin of hualing me away
because I did'nt pay
I said "calm down boys
its not like im out buying toys
I got the money right here
put away those guns have no fear
They said Son you'd better go down town right away
take care of this buessness without delay
so I got out of bed
went down town instead
That tax cost me a lot more
that's so the tax man can be sure
That I won't be doing that again
so I will tell you friend
for now on I'll be payin those taxes
so the man don't show up with guns and axes
even though you don't own a m int
I still have to pay the goverment rent
I don't feel like I own my land
It really belongs to them is what I understand
but I'll be a good boy
and try not to anoy
the tax man
I'll do what I can
because living in a house with some land
is way better than living in a van

Just got back from Standing Rock Rez
Its a peacful protest except for the Oil Police
Their Idea of peacfull is different,
I wrote this about that called........

STANDING ROCK

Here I am at Standing rock
gathered here with the rest of the flock
Donald Trump is the new prez
The indians are comming of the Rez
they want to be thier own
they no longer want to be owned
They have a problem with the oil
they don't want it in thier water or their soil
Thier out here fighting with prayer
The oil police all they do is stare
and point their loaded guns
at all those native american sons
and when they neal down to pray
the oil police drench them with pepper spray
Their calling it a riot
but what I saw was peacful and quite
people from all over the world are there
some just want a good protest other's really care
They all used oil just to get to this place
so really it seems no one has a case
but they don't want no pipeline on their land
so the holy men are there making a stand
Its all non-violent that is how they role
but the oil police are taking a toll
Its all about how and where we live
It seems those with money don't want to give
So those indians are taking a stand at standing rock
trying to turn back the clock
They want to go back to the time of the buffalo
but for most that is a definite no go
so a simpler solution is a must
they need to compramise and gain some trust
They sould all pray together
under the air of an eagle feather
and all sing the sacred melodies
instead of being arrested and charged with felonies
What about thier human rights
seem the oil police turned out the lights
so all the people flock
to protest at a place called STANDING ROCK

^ Well said, Ed.

I wish it wasn't true,
I wish the police knew what to do
Knew how to treat us as equal...

Wish they knew the golden rule
Instead of acting the dangerous fool
But they really don't have a clue...

While we can all see
How our greed
Has a never ending need to feed...

How our greed
Will never let us
Be Free.
