This Yank’s Thanks

22 November 2010

In this season and time of living

Comes the holiday of Thanksgiving.

Let’s approach the day with an attitude

Full of thankfulness and gratitude.

First off there’re the people in memory preservatives,

Ancestors, grandparents and other relatives,

All those who thru struggle and strife

Made it possible for us to enjoy life.

As children we grew and learned

Lessons for our professions

Then with that knowledge earned

Money for necessities and possessions.

Not to forget the many opportunities

That come from having civil liberties.

Let’s celebrate the ascension

Of society with each new invention.

My wish at this time of year

Is for you to be with those most dear.

We have the Bill of Rights and reason,

Not trite laws that make every act treason.


Tho everybody’s glad it there and it’s thorny like a cactus,

Congress shall make no law regulating religious practice.

As paradigms morph and the fundamentalists keep trying their best

Still officers shall be bound by oath or affirmation, but no religious test.

Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech.

Personal expression’s within everyone’s reach.

The government may not violate

The right of the people to congregate.

The People have a right to redress

Against any governmental excess.


This thought make liberals come unhinged,

The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.


No Soldier shall, in time of peace abide

In any house without the owner allied.


Whether participating in business or leisure

People have a right against unreasonable search and seizure.

No Warrant shall issue but upon probable cause

Supported by oath or affirmation that draws

A description of the place to be sought

And the persons or things to be brought.


No person shall be subject for the same offense

Twice, nor a witness against self-defense,

Nor be be deprived of life, liberty or property

Without due process of law and formality.


In all criminal prosecutions, regardless of style,

The accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy trial,

And not to worry

About the jury.


In Suits at common law, trial by jury shall not be thinned

And no fact tried by a jury shall be otherwise re-examined.


Excessive bail shall not be required or afflicted

Nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel punishments inflicted.


The enumeration of certain rights shall not be construed

To deny or disparage others retained by the multitude.


The powers not delegated to the United States administration

Are reserved to the States or the people of the nation.

Reasons for the constitution are annihilated

When the rights of the people are violated.

Driving away the day’s aggravation,

Hoping for a little affirmation,

Praying for no disappointment,

No fly in the ointment,

With a look of lust

He stared at her bust

Then with a thrust

On her say

Started banging away

Chugging like a train

Or a screen door in a hurricane

Going full tilt

All the way to the hilt

A full frontal attack

With no holding back

From the drive

To feel more alive

Bringing the sensation

And stimulation

To a culmination

Finally overloading

And exploding

Achieving exultation and jubilation

Confirmation and validation

That occasionally positive happens

And once in a while an average guy wins.

Itch Blitz

Itch Blitz

6 November 2010

They bite my feet, ankles and calves

So I itch a lot and not by halves.

I itch from my toes to my knees

Bitten by vermin called fleas.

The itching bothers me more than you can tell

And I curse them all to the bottommost hell.

Surely fleas must have a natural foe

That can be introduced to make them go.

Meanwhile I suffer, tormented

By itching that has me demented.

With a poison aerosol bomb

I started my own plea pogrom.

I just want their biting to cease

So I can live my life in peace.

Please, fleas

Listen to my pleas,

Let me be

Itch free.

I’ll vacuum the floor

On my way out the door.

Then I’ll fumigate

The fleas I hate.

When the can works as intended

Their biting will be ended.

Let them breathe the plume

Of fumes that spells doom.

I’ll stop itching,

Quit my bitching,

Change the focus of my intention

And give quality of life my attention.

31 October 2010

Although in life we’ve never met

I saw your face on the internet.

My heart was caught by surprise

By the look in your eyes.

While reading your profile

I just had to smile.

I was going to contact you for a date

Then I realized really you’re straight.

Endure Procedure

A few days ago I heard that my second cousin goes to dialysis. This poem is dedicated to anyone who has ever been in the dentist's chair or the operating room as a patient.

Endure Procedure

26 October 2010

Do whatever it is you do,

And give my body back when you’re thru.

Regardless of the actions you take

Please, leave my body in reasonable shape.

Sometimes the pain

Is too much of a drain,

So to keep from becoming a wreck

I’ll just drop and hit the deck.

While you monitor my temperature

I’ll just lie here and snore.

Things will get better I’m sure

After I wake up stiff and sore.

Then the recovery will begin

And I hope to become myself again.
