Get At It

Through the prairies

Up the mountains

And down to the sea,

Who in the hell knows

Where the end will be,

One thing’s for certain

Whether on wheels

Or at sail,

Eventually you body

Your body will fail,

So get at it,

Do what you

Are meant to do,

Get at it.

No Straws



Is it simply a reflection

Of how easily our collective intelligence

Can be duped into majoring in minor things,

Or are some of us simply stupid,

Perhaps it’s an easy way

To feel warm and fuzzy,

At least we’re doing


With all of the crazy, nasty

Things going on on the planet,

It’s all okay as we step out of our

SUVS, pickup trucks, climate controlled cars

In our rubber shoes, plastic glasses, fabricated fabrics,

It’s all okay if we can say

With a commanding voice,

No straws.
