03-02-15 Sugar Sweet Evil

Cookies for breakfast
Watching cartoons together
Bright lights shining down
Push the limitations of power

Hang down on the candy train
Shocked by the trash machine
Survival in spite of bad weather
Find a warm spot and stay there

03-01-15 Show Biz Tragedy

Sit right back
Enjoy the show
Live on stage

That big old
Television set
In the living room

Sensational stories
Exciting programs
Entertainment songs

Drums rumble
Performers scramble
Airwaves crackle

Drunk on celebrity
Fame and fortune flow
The roar of the crowd

Evil all around town
Going down faster alone
Nobody hears you scream

Luxurious glamour
Bone chilling destruction
Ugly until the end

Darkness hides
Diamonds outside
Sickness inside

Spotlight shines bright
The money is insane
It's a lonesome life

02-28-15 Let's Have Lunch At Wo Hop

That's the place
where I get my breakfast
on those cold mornings
when I have to be
at the court house early

We can go to Wo Hop
for lunch before we go
back home since it's only
a short walk from the
court house downtown

Hot wonton soup
steamed dumplings
egg rolls rice chicken
dipping crunchy noodles
shrimp with oyster sauce

Best service in town
delicious menu
large portions
inexpensive prices
open all the time

02-27-15 In Search Of

Nimoy investigates
Ghosts in the old castle
Paranormal phenomenon
Bigfoot creeping through the woods
Nessie splashing around in Loch Ness
Spiritual powers and mind control
Missing persons dead or alive
Lost in the city of Atlantis
Fly away in a UFO

02-26-15 Extraterrestrial Love

A new alien invasion
From outer space
Or inner Earth

They're coming
To take us away
To their planet

They're coming
To breed with us
To create life

They're coming
To have us for dinner
To eat us alive

02-25-15 Someday I Will Lose You

The phone rings
My heart sinks
Waiting for
The call

The line has been disconnected

Someday I will
Lose you
I will always
Love you

02-24-15 Living A Leap Of Faith

Sometimes the signs are clear
But sometimes they're hard to find
We continue down the road regardless
And try to fly blindly into the future

02-23-15 Old Country Farmhouse

Slowly turning
Under the hot sun
Every single day
In the afternoon
To cultivate food

Ten generations
Grew up in this house
Walls thick with paint
Stained with layers
Of golden memories

A bank owns it now
The broken roof leaks
The wood floors creak
It will be bulldozed anyway
To make room for condominiums

02-22-15 Manhattan Freeze Machine

This city is beautiful
In the frozen winter

Slippery sidewalks
Snowy slow motion
Slick streets still alive
Silent traffic lights change

Chilly evening downtown
Freeze me out in the cold

02-21-15 Winterland Fairytales

Snow top smokey mountain
Ancient birds soar the skies
Winter music wind softly blows
A sweet frosty melody out loud
Like living in the land of ice cream
Chipping ice off my windshield
Forgot my gloves in the morning
Air so cold my teeth all hurt
Frozen to the bone without heat
A steaming hot coffee hit the spot

02-20-15 Cycles Of Sunshine

Those incredible sunsets
Melt into the crisp skyline
They never seemed so real
They'll never be the same
We'll never see them again

Stay up all night
Gazing at the stars
Take a deep breath
Make a wish

Those amazing sunrises
Burst across the great horizon
They never felt so real
They'll never be the same
We'll see them again someday

02-18-15 Messages Inside Your Brain

Call the shots
Straight up

Truth is open
To interpretation

The content
Is meaningful

Blink twice
You missed it

Shining bright
Under the surface

The content
Is meaningless

It's all about
