When She

When she placed my

Hand upon her breast

I had this urge to ride,

Ride West,

To the great divide

Follow down to

The canyon rimmed

Then to the caves

Where the temperature

Is always tropical.

Around And Around

Another one almost over,

The turmoil of

Over spending

Over eating,

Drinking too much

Talking too much,

Now in the final hours

Lined up with glazed eyes

For the Boxing Day

Push and shove,

To charge some more

To spend some more,

Not to worry,

It’s resolution time

When so many will

Resolve to never do it again,

Like they have year after year.

On Christmas Eve

On Christmas Eve

We sat around listening

To the old carols that had

Been playing in retail outlets

Since just after Halloween,

A family dog named Tico had

Passed away earlier in the day leaving

Sad faces wondering what things were

Really all about,

Life’s sometimes crazy isn’t it ?

Goddesses Mak, Dee and Kart

Helped to put things in perspective,

Just for the hell of it someone put on

A Son’s Of Anarchy CD and everyone

Looked sideways at one another.
