Dreaming In Blue

In the picture, I'm seventeen I’m black-eye sullen, and I’m lazy green Got a pristine body with a focused mind On a girl named Mona That I wished were mine If I had her lying here beside me I’d tell her that I never once Skipped a single day, dreaming in blue In the picture, I'm forty one I flog ins...

Re: The Front Line

Hello Heinz, Great to hear from you as well. I hope life is good for you in California these days. Having been on long voyages to both Lilliput and Brobdingnag these past years it's good to cast my eyes on familiar shores. My output has lately been, of necessity, confined to the lyrical. This post i...

Re: The Front Line

Many warm thanks sir... You know, until yesterday, I was unsure if I still 'existed' here. But it seems I do, and a glace at my start date shows it's coming up on ten years since I first posted. There's been a lot of water and several PC's pass under the bridge since. It's good to see the place is s...

The Front Line

1. Step back take a look at her She’s thin as a wafer With curls and tapers Sequins and lasers Jump back take look at me I’m not getting stronger My face has grown longer My mind likes to wander I'm on the front line No bullets in my chamber I'm in the path of danger A victim of this crime Hey Jack,...

Re: Do You Like The Boy

Much obliged A.F.!! I'm a bit of an audio fool myself. :cheers:

BTW, the boy isn't really that dangerous, just don't make any sudden movements.

Do You Like The Boy

I’d like to introduce you To our little pride and joy He’s quite a lot like daddy was When he was self-employed We’ve got him in our pocket We taught him how to drive Now he’s screaming through your neighbourhood But the sun gets in his eyes Short on sense of purpose Fills it in with style His head’...

Re: Burned

Hi there, wb. I thought the first and last stanzas were brilliant. But you lost focus somewhat in the middle three. Please forgive me for being so brash as to make the following suggestion: Replace the 2nd, 3rd and 4th with something like this: The ride got rough I broke a spoke, the bearings ground...

Re: The Henderson Reclamation

Well… what goes around comes around. ‘The Henderson Reclamation’ is an observation of our own generation. That is, we boomers, who were in turn raised by the ‘silent generation’. That would be the same silent demographic that experienced prosperity in childhood (roaring twenties), financial ruin in ...

Re: The Henderson Reclamation

Now that you mention it Mr. Bags, I guess it is different than what I usually write. No rhyme for sure. I’ve looked back at some of my other free verse efforts from a few years ago and realize that stuff was more esoteric and ‘in-your-face’ than this piece which is perhaps just as dark but more reso...

Re: Gnomosexuality

Goodness. Where did you come from Crooklyn? You weren't about these parts when I started to become quite sparse around here. Not many rhymesters post here. They are a rare breed whom many seem unable to appreciate. But, being a lyricist, I do. Quite. Your meter is impeccable. I read through your pie...
