****

i hate, hearing complaint and complaints
i hate, endless conflicts and battles
**
i hate, deep valley between hearts
i hate, mysterious whispers & hates
i hate, human similarity to vacillatory statue
**
i hate, nonsense & colourless words
i hate, exaggeration & bragging
i hate, false & unreasonable ruckus
**
i hate, praising golden idols & treasures
i hate, roguish tricks of capital accumulation
i hate, insatiable bellies
**
i hate, dumb minds
i hate, owning ears, but acting as a deaf
i hate, owning eyes, but acting as a blind
**
i hate, rootless promises
i hate, lack of similarity between words & mind
i hate, the duality of humans

Keeping America Beutiful

There are many things you can do to keep America beautiful
Reuse plastic bottles and fill them from the tap
Don't throw garbage out of your car onto the side of the road
Instead put it in the trash when you get home
When hunting, fishing, or trapping, only take what is legally allowed
So the future generations can have an abundance of wild life
If you camp, be sure your fire is completely out, even the coals
If you must have children, have only one
So the future won't be overcrowded and the animals lose their habitats
Vote for candidates that believe in strong immigration laws
So the future children will have jobs and safe streets to play in
Recycle so we don't use up all our resources
Be kind to your neighbors so they will have peace in their hearts

Taking Your Jobs Away

Well the midnight search light
Find me on a rainy night
Steep mountain up ahead
Slow me down makin no time
Gotta keep rollin
Those windshield wipers
Slappin out a tempo
Keepin perfect with the song on the radio
Gotta keep rollin
Ooh, I'm takin your jobs away
Lookin for some better pay, oh me o mio
Ooh, I'm takin your jobs away
Lookin for a sunny day
Well the border guard cutie
Comin up to me
Tried to talk me into arrest
Said I wouldn't be sorry
She took away my baby
well, detention center guard
pour me another cup of coffee
Pop me down, jack me up
Shoot me out, flying down the highway
Looking for the good job
Ooh, I'm takin your jobs away
Looking for some better pay
For me!

I make up parody songs when I'm bored, this one has been in my head for years. Added some to it for the children being separated from their parents at the border.

Roseanne

I bought your Season 3 last night at Goodwill
But it seems the network made you chill
You sent a mean tweet
You thought was neat
But those in power
Took away my favorite comedy hour
You spoke it from the hip
While you got fat on too much chips and dip
But I didn't care
It just isn't fair
Comedy, especially by a woman is hard to do
To make people laugh, well you really pulled through
So I'll just save your last show on my DVR
While I watch your DVD at home and in my car

All this political correctness is really making TV lame, thankfully we have DVDs.

# 104 (JUST SAYING V)

It's possible the first humans realized themselves they had "Free Will"
just maybe they concluded common sense defines what is or isn't real
Some god wasn't required to give humans the ability to exhaust voice
our functioning Brain dispenses 'Will' needed to make every choice

Again I vehemently declare life IS NOT some precious 'Gift'
much more symbolic of beating you down than giving a lift
People die from a broken heart I believe is very true
it honestly appears to be the process I'm going through

"The Left" won't cease spewing THE BIG LIE 'guns are the culprit'
either they're playing blind or simply enjoy the role of ignorant shit
"The Left" justify minorities dismantling this Nation we live in
America pledges "In God We Trust" while condoning every sin

If the Devil exists he's behind the birth of noise known as Rap
obnoxious mouthing off isn't real 'music' but incoherent Crap
Throughout the world Americas' perceived as a beacon of Hope
does arrogantly proclaiming translate into 100% reality 'Nope'

The hypocrisy in our defunct world has reached immeasurable
expressing truth is sadly on the brink of becoming unutterable

Fever

I have fever
In my body.
Feeling of unrest.
I do not know
Anymore
Who are
My friends.
Millions of people
Live in poverty.
Half of the world
Hates another half.
Millions of people
Are suffering.
Millions are dependent
On drugs.
There is fever
In my body
Also because
I can not change
Anything
In the laws
Rulling this globe

America by Claude McKay

Although she feeds me bread of bitterness,
And sinks into my throat her tiger’s tooth,
Stealing my breath of life, I will confess
I love this cultured hell that tests my youth.
Her vigor flows like tides into my blood,
Giving me strength erect against her hate,
Her bigness sweeps my being like a flood.
Yet, as a rebel fronts a king in state,
I stand within her walls with not a shred
Of terror, malice, not a word of jeer.
Darkly I gaze into the days ahead,
And see her might and granite wonders there,
Beneath the touch of Time’s unerring hand,
Like priceless treasures sinking in the sand.

About this poem:
A black immigrants view of the US in the '20s, powerful and thought provoking. Have we really moved on? You could swap out the title with any other country and still the poem would make sense. That's indicative of the harsh reality of 21st century living

Records and Tapes

When I got my new car
I put you away
Because my old tape player wouldn't play any more
So I found out about this record player that would convert them to cd
So now I have you back in my car again
Listening to songs like Wipe Out by the Fat Boys
Baby Love by Regina
Living In A Box by Living In A Box
Causing A Commotion by Madonna
Press by Paul McCartney
Forever Live and Die by OMD
Una Paloma Blanca by Slim Whitman
And many others
Now I have you back again to enjoy and sing to in my car

About this poem:
I have had this record player since April 12 and am enjoying listening to my old tapes and records again. I haven't been able to record records for about 35 years since my old record player record button broke about a year after I got it for Christmas.

Teacher Rant

I hate these kids
This pay I'm getting
What a joke!
There is no respect for teachers
None, zip, nada
How has it gone so bad so fast
It used to be good for teachers
A good pension after 30 years
You could retire in your mid 50's and have about 30 years of good retirement
Teach 30, retire 30, sounded great, right?
Now that has been stripped away to give it to fat cronies like Donald Trump
And don't get me started with these kids
Parents who want to be friends to their kids
Kids being raised by grandparents because their parents chose drugs instead
Kids who do things so disgusting and bullying that redefines cruelty
I should quit, but I have three things that keep me going to this tomb
June, July, and August!

About this poem:
After the school shootings on Valentine's Day, I have been researching teaching and what led to this and many other shootings in our schools. I got out in 96, as I taught and got bulldozed over by those kids every day.

Eyes wide shut.

I may only be a teenager in this new world,but already I see what's in store for me
A world were corruption and lies are king, and the takers keep taking cause they can never sin, why is it we suffer while governments get rich, if they cared for their people no mess would the world be in, they serve others but just think of themselves, did they ever serve the people, or is that just another lie like all the rest, I haven't been here long but I see what's going on, and I hate to say this but some governments are wrong, so who is corrupting them for so long, we need to stand up and say enough is enough, this world belongs to all of us not just for the takers, don't think you have won, for my generation well stop you this time, your in power long enough time for a change, and I promise you this you well all know my name.
