Pick a line, any line, from the poem above (props to W)Page 105 of 113    (73, 74, 75, 76, 77, 78, 79, 80, 81, 82, 83, 84, 85, 86, 87, 88, 89, 90, 91, 92, 93, 94, 95, 96, 97, 98, 99, 100, 101, 102, 103, 104, 105, 106, 107, 108, 109, 110, 111, 112, 113)
crossed over from tampa memories galore
thunder storm scenes from the sea shore
largest suburb laid out like a wagon wheel
vacancy signs offering a last minute deal

a few free lobster diners within reason
who knew if they were even in season
now Key lime pies are a different story
heard from an orchard owner in a dory

wrote a book on how to peel papaya
claims he learned from ancient Maya
found buried in a codex on the gold coast
along with a recipe for vanilla French toast

free magazine subscriptions renewed this year
said read the fine print even if it was unclear
blue green fuzzy fonts on watermarked papers
like mining M&Ms from green peas and capers

there's proof you won't find in the valley
anything like the ones from Alligator Alley

Thunder storm scenes from the sea shore
Some wouldn't need any thing more
Just sit and watch the weather come and go
taking this life very very slow
When you have lived through the years
There is a point of no fear
and you have seen everything you can possibly see
except the truth standing in front of me
Ignorance is bliss
when your living life without a kiss

just sit and watch the weather come and go
forms a hellstorm winter snow
torrential rain falls down
lightening and thunder the only sound

Raging and roaring earthquaking
imagine a billion hearts breaking
why bad weather comes & goes
depends on how the wind blows

Raging and roaring earth-quaking
it rattles and hums as its shaking
When its done it all there for the taking
nothings left but the baking
that is when you find the ones that are faking
and the others that are forsaking
and its all laid out inf front of those that are waking
and a hot cup of tea for hose that are aching

it rattles and hums as its SHAKING
forging unbreakable bonds making
friendship lasting over many years
through valley lows & painful fears

shaking our very core
yet we still go explore
there’s so much more
planted seeds to grow

Forging unbreakable bonds making
Threats to allies he's forsaking
Years of delicate webs creating
A bully that feeds on fake praise
Destroying all the good 'ole days
When one could put the news on
And not feel increasing alarm
We might really come to harm
With this rising political craze

destroying all the good 'ole days
Frequency distortion in a maze
when Space time continued on
crashed the bridge with a song

stuck in the moment waiting to see
still contemplating what I should be
guess theres no room for hesitation
struck here a powerful persuasion

There's no room for hesitation
once you know the destination
It will be clear sailing
from all that your failing
forget about all that old baggage stuff
It disappears in a single puff
Nothing wrong with feeling good
Its how humans always should

It disappears in a single puff
Used to really like the stuff
Once upon a time for sure
Would reach for it to help me cure
The dull pain or monotony of life
Of way too young becoming a wife
Then years went by without the guy
Still liked the state of being high
And then as often happens to me
Overnight I stopped it completely
When it became legal recreationally
I blame it all on that guy named Murphy
But mostly it's funny as I laugh at the irony

Once upon a time for sure
When I knew where we were
That there was a there here
In an unheard Hear, Hear !

Radio stations playing the blues
was mass media faking the news
making headlines out of context
could not say who wood be next

maybe when monkeys are unhappy
not everyone knows they get scrappy
wearing checkered designer bandannas
saying man does not live only on bananas

sitting in the big blind for the first deal
waiting for the promise of a free meal
as bags of chips in clouds lost their seal
when finally I realized it was all surreal

my hopes faded for becoming a dreamer
maybe I was always a wanna be Beamer
after all it's only natural to want the greatest
so tell me what you've heard about the latest

so tell me what you've heard about the latest
rumors saying aluminum levels are straightest
not including clear water hoses on uneven lots
using 3 by 4 by 5 triangles connecting the dots

even level, plum and square Masons agree
may be many meanings to the mysterious G
being invited to attend the royal masquerade
privy to where influential movements are made

heard all the villains dressed up like heroes
analyzed traffic trends with ones and zeros
tracked Mr. Smith's popularity with polls
recording viewer responses to pot holes

reading the I Ching it was long understood
sometimes the wrong forces overcome good
no rhyme or reason will help win the lottery
but pick only numbers others consider unlucky

Sometimes the wrong forces overcome good
then all you have left is chaos in the Hood
Another ghetto is born every day
Junkie's and dealers go there to play
Addictions seems to always prevail
go ahead and build another Jail
The politicians think they have the solution
but to me its more like a disillusion
So follow the money and see where it goes
I'm sure someone in higher places already know
Its all about parasitic plants controlling your mind
They get inside and make you feel fine
It insures there species will always thrive
and makes it easy for them to survive

So follow the money and see where it goes
Liquid like water in the winds of Chi flows
Make waves atop the tides drawn by Luna
as La Nina has grown hotter so have tuna

Galapagos iguana are still sunning on turtles
Cain't get a permit to import Crepe Myrtles
Six toed cat museums running low on litter
No longer recommend using mylar glitter

Only as aluminized sheets in a solar oven
There's nothing unlucky in a baker's dozen
Using only four fingers to count in twelves
Tricks learned long ago thumb wrestling elves

So follow the money and see where it goes
Back to the land where no one overthrows
The one named putin we all know his name
He's the favourite supporter destroying our game

He's smart in his overly confident vain
Colluding with you know who all the same
It's not hard to see it's the laundry of money
In exchange for a whole bunch now under scrutiny

Don't think it's long before there'll be mutiny
Hard to tell when in this entire country
Divided we stand, not united we be
Except for so many are done with 'ole trumpy

Back to the land where no one overthrows
Mother nature pruned by Caesar regrows
Olive orchards, grape vines and cork trees
Cargo containers of exotic oils and honeybees

Bartender there's a dragonfly in my draught beer
Came in riding on the wagon that brought it here
In a whisper she replied quietly pretending to cheer
His steed's Mr Mastadon who you don't want to hear

as the new rumors flew like flies of the walls
truncated echos resounded down long halls
No Colusion, no collusion, o collusion, ......
Reading covefefe leaves left no confusion

So enlightened ear wax Q tipped candles
Began chants against socks with sandals

as the new rumors flew like flies of the walls
i’m not a crook color painting as time crawls
to an Un-American stand still without regret
in the back of a cop car not almost there yet

waiting on Paul Revere to bring the goods
hiding out in a countryside southern woods
so did you hear the news the enemies within
who amongst us here used an enemy to win?

trading poisonous slithering snake skins into bitter deal
helping to Rebuild American infrastructure proof of seal
from Treasonous black pirates looking to totally Destroy
faking southern drawls using destructive rhetorical ploys

raising the flag half mast from a soldiers salute
helping to better that cause not destroy and loot
never use the enemy to help defeat the rise & fall
either get it through hard work, or never git it at all

not saying never play the lottery Powerball
sometimes called a Bonus Ball but ask to who
most likely not Mr Mustard in a game of clue

rolling boxcars may not be the only hard way
against the odds to lose more the more you play
better bet buying tiny houses in this market
ten speed truck and double car garage to park it

too good to be true if it sounds like a steel
a bit early to get the latest greatest deal
an icar without breaks or steering wheel
though it's easy to understand the appeal

It's honestly just not worth the ordeal
Waiting to see when they might be free
How old is that photo supposed to be?
We all try and act our best that first test
But just don't want them to get undressed
Didn't you say on the guitar you can play
But when I take out my flute you run away

How old is that photo supposed to be?
Younger mountains rose from the sea
Gravitational lens now allow us to see
Back in time to the beginning of eternity

Questions of when did time really begin
Answered with stories of original sin
Message that all life is a precious gift
Garnished by the muses on a ski lift

Temperature dropped to twenty two
Licking a flagpole turned my lips blue
So don't tell me again what not to do
I'll eat the daisies and desiccants too

Lost in the book store self help isle
Still got a land line phone with a dial
Hard headed an unchangeable mind
Working pro bono to be paid inkind

Working pro bono to be paid inkind
Giving away free samples lemonlime
No contract fee here now free to sign
Why it all works out jest fine due time

Drew up a master plan to give it away
Said the only stipulation was yesterday
To look back in time and pay with Sight
If it all worked out compsate whats right

Seems like the grandest best deal in town
Why peace is better freely passed around
Just wouldn’t seem right if we had to pay
Take what you need now from yesterday

Just wouldn't feel right if we had to pay
For our air or care or freedom this day
But we already do and all have a clue
How much we're enslaved when a bill is due

How much we strive just to stay alive
Too many people are at risk to survive
Promised they could definitely stay
Then told out of the blue that ends today

How sad everything has become
The fight for freedom is nowhere won
We try and pretend it's not that bad
But truth be known we've all been had

How much we strive just to stay alive
Honey bear has thick fur for a bee hive
Keeps well covered except the bare feet
Climbing tree branches for a sweet treat

Some can scrape by where others thrive
Searching tide pools or a deep free dive
I'd rather not get the salt water in my eyes
Prefer going naked if there's no biting flies

Have coconut crabs drop by for dinner
Hear a casino dealer call winner, winner
Two ways to roll eleven and six for seven
Beats the odds I see of getting to heaven

Can't take camels through the eyes of needles
One thang for sure the gods must love beetles
Found a ball python plugging my french drain
Id left the warm water drippin in a freezing rain

An infrared heat lamp felt good for about an hour
Defrosting a microwave TV dinner without power

honey bear has thick fur for a bee hive
on top of song mountain for a skydive
cleaned up the corvette & ready to go
extra high speed fiber optic lite show

with the sun setting now a full glass
drove all day listening on full blast
even bought a tee shirt with a CD
ready to see waves roll into the c

can't seem to put 2 and 2 together
why it really depends on the weather
what this all has to do with fairy tales
sappy beatles sing but jest can't spell

on top of song mountain for a skydive
thought came to mind to make a drive
asked the golf cart caddy if I should
use a nine iron or a number 2 wood

checking the gate camerman said take three
panned around to where he could see the sea
before action directing actors to hit their spots
strategically sprinkling the best lines with dots

the bus ride up here was scary enough in the rain
do you need reservations for the scenic cog train

Panned around to see where he could see the sea
Turned out it was there right in front of me
At low tide the beach reached to infinity
Yet in the far distance the water just showed
In bright sunshine it sparkled and glowed
Was it a mirage appearing out there?
Will never know for the vision cleared
Revealing a pine forest of trees very old
Then woke from the dream hungry and cold
