 Smiley Wink Cheesy Grin Angry Sad Shocked Cool  christmas is coming and people will be gathered 'round
the angel dyin' inside of me
will be falling, falling down
The christmastime ensemble will be singing songs of sweet repose
as rudolph the rednosed reindeer leads the way
With a very shiny nose
christmas is coming to all my christian friends
mariachi  up
mariachi down
prayers for love and happiness
chanukah is coming
though I flunked out of hebrew school
but that don't mean too much to me
I always break the rules
so let's all send a message
even though you may not be my type
Imagining the world as one
And shine your little light.
yes, the darkness of our sadness
will grace the world so blue
the sweet, sweet wildwood flower
will our broken trust renew
maybe Ill go downtown to the stores and buy a "glift" for yo'
Or open up a sixpack of strawberry shpritzers
...or "get the drift" for you
rat-a-tat-a-tat-a-tat (tictac tictac)
tom, dick, harry and jumpin' jehosephat
all the longhaired blondes drop bye
to see if there is something doing
some are coming and some are going
but all of them are beautiful
yes, christmas will be coming...da da da river and all that and
some spiritual connections that I have been informed that we can't dignify anymore.
              special message conf: "I'm on Fire", man, and it is my sorrow.

That Song About the Midway
joni mitchell


I met you on the midway at a fair last year
And you stood out like a RUBY in a BLACK MAN'S ear...
You were BETTING on the HORSES,
You were playing on THE GUITAR strings
You were playing like a devil wearing wings...
Wearing wings, you looked so grand
Wearing wings
Do you tape them to your shoulders just to sing?
So vote or abstain, babe...you should check the jury out on this one!
fetter/bid
Guilty as Charged Again

When I was just a child of five I loved to jump on our fetterbid
I used to sing "Old Kentucky Home"
Because I was in the mood to "rock out" in red
I bought myself a watergun and a plastic rogue and Starwars knife,
And I brought my toys to "show and tell"
And I ate a crab apple and I hid from the light
One day the cops pulled up beside a rock inside this apple tree
I climbed the branch to get away
But they got ahold of a ladder and brought me in
Me?
A mean defender of the justice and the faith
I said, "I caught Nixon in '72! I exposed Watergate!!"
"I'm INVOLVED in politics, music, art, photography...
And I like to play the cheapskate at the Roxxy Rollerskating Rink.
I like frenchfries, hotdogs with ketchup, hamburgers, pizza and wine and cheese
And I like to talk to people who love me
Because I know that love is free...
Inside my mind, a smaller tree grows branches like an autumn leaf
In the fall of my life, I have to wait and see
Because no matter how the watercolors fade like water and run like rain
The beads of guile search us out
I'm guilty as charged again...
Whoa! Lots of "b-a-n-g" for your buck out of that poem...color by number to say the least Cool


As She Broods (Amidst the Cloud Formation)/Jackpot at a Lower Station

Sunshine Charlie was taken aback
The howling imperfection of her "Get your s-h-i-t together" act
The answer to the future
In a tune we sang as kids
Locked inside a mason jar,
Or downtown on the skids (doo whack a doo)
Like a silver chain wrapped 'round her heart
Every simple man who sings a song
Is clearly told "She's mine...don't start!
..."straight from the bum its sitting on..."
And when the yellow sun comes shinin' in,
We're gonna "get it up" and "do it again..."
Gonna "do it again?" I know the fool...
Gonna "do it again?" I know the fool
Gonna "do it again???" I know the fool
Open the vault and steal the jewels
Taking all she sees as hers
Cracked and old as the combination
9-7-2-1
Keep them both
As she broods amidst the cloud formation
9-7-2-1
Take it all
The jackpot settles for a lower station.

This is supposed to be a rock and roll signpost.
Thanks to Jackson Browne for the inspiration.
...just say the mason jar is locked and its mindset in is a key to the cuffs that belongs to nobody else but you..." Eyes on the Prize" What a grind! change your mind!!! ?!!
The way to own an assertion like this is to make sure you mean it in your actions and your life. I am sure it will be fine...more or a little less...I am sure it will be fine "...jaunty pluma'ray..."





I'm running
late...I'm on the same page as you, man and I wish you well.💙
