Shuffle On

We shuffle on

In our human haze

Searching, coming up

With ways

To justify

The things we do,

Some are always

Ill at ease

They’re the ones

Who aim to please,

The rest don’t really

Give a damn

To them it’s all

A game, a scam.

Vaunted Leaders

We have the guy

From Kiev on the run

Who’s to say if it’s

Right or wrong

In the crazy whacky

Ways of the world,

But it begs the question,

If he’s to be done,

What about Bush,

Blair, Harper, the Aussie

Dude, Obama and a host

Of others too numerous

To mention,

We show his house

To rile the crowd,

But what if we dropped

The shroud on a

British palace or the digs

Of any of our vaunted leaders.

I Thought About You

I thought about you

On this Zhivago day,

Snowing like crazy

In a way that is usually

Foreign to The Island,

Perhaps it’s the genetic

Code survival thing,

Naked skin wrapped

In furs, fire and warmth,

Maybe there are other

Reasons that I don’t

Understand or can’t or

Won’t put Into words.

Observing

If one can turn

The judgement switch,

The right or wrong buttons

Off,

Observing reveals

Ironic, comic situations,

Those wtf moments

Like the male – female clocks,

Seldom synchronized,

One ticking long last

The other,

The rules, the regulations,

The laws we put in place

To combat

The fundamental facts

Of nature.

Hundred Years Later

A hundred years later

We’re still on a roll

I came back early

Cause I miss you all

And I need you babe

Oh how I need you,

Hemingway still

With his pen and a book

Charlie still has

That ohh sexy look

And I need you babe

Oh how I need you,

A hundred years later

We’re still on a roll

I came back early

Cause I miss you all

And I need you babe

Oh how I need you,

The world’s still crooked

In it’s crazy way

It doesn’t really matter

What you do or say

And I need you babe

Oh how I need you,

A hundred years later

We’re still on a roll

I came back early

Cause I miss you all

And I need you babe

Oh how I need you.

The Point

I never met Bukowski,

I never read Bukowski

Until a sexy Cornell chick

Pointed him out,

She was into Waits,

Lennon, Nine Inch Nails,

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club,

Some sexy chicks are like Bukowski,

Straight to the point,

Some are into dining, dancing,

Waxing, walking, movies, perfuming,

By the time they get to the point

It’s flat and dull as hell.
