Going back to school
Baseball season is ending
Leaves are turning brown

09-29-16 Poison In The Water

all the time it's terrifying
to know you need me to win

contribute to the tribe to survive
now you're extra super paranoid

09-28-16 Unfriended

Everyone is turned on
But no one is tuned in

Everyone is plugged in
But no one is connected

Everyone is watching
But no one is aware

Everyone is alive
But no one is living

09-27-16 Life Is Fast

We spoke yesterday
Now suddenly you're gone

In the blink of an eye
On the brink of life
From birth to death
Or everywhere inbetween 

We learn to walk
We learn to love
We learn to work 
We learn to die

Only alive in photos
and in my memories

trying to remember 
the sound of your voice

Every day it's 
business as usual
wake up early
work your ass off

Holidays next month
Bills due next week
Frozen dinner again
Forgot to pick up milk

All those jokes he told 
She never finished her book
You still have to fix the car

Your fresh green plant
Sitting on the window
In unlimited sunlight
But after you left
No one watered it
Now it's all dried up

We spoke yesterday 
Now suddenly you're gone

09-26-16 Poisoned Planet Blues

Running out of time
Walls are closing in
Days are getting short
The water level rises

Sun is shining hotter
Ice mountains melting
Pollution in the air now
Your future is at stake

09-24-16 Baseball Game At The Zoo

There was a bear cub
Who hit a home run
Into the bleacher seats

Then there was a hen
Who hit the ball straight
Out of the ballpark 

Next the snakes came
Up to bat with nobody out
But none of them scored

So we cheered for the dolphins
And they didn't strike out
They won the game in style

09-23-16 Kids In The Neighborhood

All good in the universe
Labels and differences don't matter
We are all the same in this game
Look around the neighborhood
At the other kids sitting alone
Let's all play together

09-22-16 Almighty Designs

Dreaming of awakenings
Mad with lousy dipping birds
One last chance to shine again
The creeps crawl after sunset

California earthquake changes
Life on Earth as we know it
Don't blow it with a gold show
The universe will tell the truth

Get lucky and break a dozen
Pizza money for your paycheck
Your heart will reveal itself  to us
Crying teardrops with your eyes

09-21-16 Boiling Point

no single person
can solve the problem
so we all have to work
together with respect

protests turn violent
riots in the streets
peace is the answer
love will stand strong

let's bring about change
i will lend you a hand
find the truth of mankind
spread the word to everyone

09-20-16 The Life Of An Urban Flower

A small flower
Grows up
Through a crack
In the sidewalk

Where a tiny seed
Once landed
Before the rains
Before the sunlight

Defying the odds
Staying alive
Against the elements
Until somebody steps on it

09-19-16 Monday Morning Sleepy Time

Pouring rain
Morning chill
Shivering bones
Under the covers

Autumn wind
Rattling glass
Squeaking door
Creeking floor

Back to sleep
Monday blues
Can't get out
Of bed today
