Sometimes Gary

 

Sometimes Gary

Double parks his city bus

And comes in

For an Ooolong Tea,

Not everyone is stuck

In the Canadian phenomenon

Of pick up trucks

And Tim Horton`s,

Sometimes some of his

Passengers come in for

A cappuccino or tea,

Sometimes I get this

Mental picture of everyone

Getting off of the bus,

Coming in for drinks,

Then back on the bus,

And then everyone coming

Back in to use the toilet,

Back on the bus,

Back in for drinks,

Back on the bus,

Back in for the toilet,

And the bus never leaves,

Just a steady stream

Of people back and forth.

The Truth

Late in the day

Over a Wuyi Rock

I was remembering

The time when I told

You that I loved you,

I realized then that you

Knew I was only telling

The truth,

Today nothing has changed,

Things remain as they were,

The truth is the truth is

The truth.

CrispyDick

The old bull knew

What the barbeque

Was for,

The rooster understood

The significance of

The pressure cooker,

And yet,

Like humans rolling

Into an election

Most never got

The game,

Nothing really changes

Except asses in benches,

At the end of the day

Someone or something

Will eat you.

Jed Said

Jed said

That some countries

Are charging visitors

An entry fee to visit

Their countries.

How much ?

He wasn’t sure

But he thought

Between five and

Twenty dollars per head.

Crazy isn’t it, but then,

How much would you

Charge if it were your

Zoo ?

Bullshit

Most people still believed

Whatever the newsperson

Read,

They were well schooled

To trust and follow,

But the rest were thrust

Onto the thin ice

Where scepticism struggles

To keep from falling

Into cynicism,

How many times

Can you bullshit thinking

People?
