“Bio”… One Hell of a Time

I haven’t let life pass me by
unnoticed & nondescript
On the contrary
I’ve been a colorful character in a world of black & white
Made my living in administration of funds for the unemployed
according to government rules & regulations
– my job was held under protection of the EEOC –
as mentally handicapped & disadvantaged

I’m sure there was a sigh of relief & a celebration
the day I said “I’m leaving…”

Diabolical Restraint

I spring back with renewed vigor
when life deals me a heavy blow
and I’m feeling unavoidably detained
With love on my side I needn’t hide
for this makes one stronger by association

I sometimes lose confidence
and you lend me an ear, Dear
for my battles are not fought for myself alone
and won’t be won without strategic veracity
and a healthy fear of the unknown

The Idealist That I Am

I’ve been deceived by the best
and put to the tests of time
twiddling my thumbs, scheming in stages
When Mr Moon is full
and there’s a chill in the air
I haven’t a care in the world

Here, the summer season is long
and I’m not feeling all that strong
hibernating where it’s cooler inside
spinning a yarn of mammoth proportions
contemplating the power of words
daydreaming we could change our world
