I HONOR A FRIENDS BIRTHDAY

A GOOD FRIEND DIED THIS WEEK

SADLY

RACE, COLOR AND RELIGION

MOM'S DAY AND GRADUATION



AS WE GROW OLDER

COST OF FALLING IN LOVE PART 2

PROTESTS IN SPANISH

FALLING IN LOVE SO EXPENSIVE

NO NEED TO FEAR THE DEVIL

55 YEARS OF WEDDED BLISS

TIME TO BUILD THE ARK

SHARING WINE WITH THE DEVIL

ONE BY ONE THEY LEAVE THE NEST

BABY IT IS MISERABLE OUT

POETICALLY SPEAKING

IN REMEMBRANCE OF MOM: FERN ERMA BISYAK

AND THE WINNER IS---?

MESSAGE TO GAIL AND KATHY

PET PEAVES

LOVE IS THE ANSWER

GROWING OLD LETTING THINGS OUT

iT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO GET A POEM READ

WOMB OF THE SAME MOTHER: POEMS

THINGS PASSING BY

I TOO THOUGHT I COULD FLY

I AM BUILDING AN ARK

I GREW UP LOVING JESUS AND BASEBALL

SMOKING AND DOPING

I GREW UP ON MUSIC AND LEO LASSEN

TOMMY WHO?

MY SPECIAL GIFT

Don't go to war with an unarmed foe
I went against that recently I know
Least it be men armed only with a thesaurus
of big words and mostly made up propaganda
I got caught up in the elections
Many of my friends said the same thing
Neither candidate was my choice
But America obviously needed change
or It would be Spanish speaking and gangs
drugs sold on every street corner legal by the current administration
So give the new President a chance
I appreciated President Obama and his family values
What I did not appreciate was a weakened America
You don't like this how this country is run
Bye!
And treating of illegal immigrants more than our Veterans
Our fireman our Policeman of all races
Take away the stolen guns from gang members
OK, it was a plus they were killing each other
But innocents were caught in the crossfire
Just as they are in the middle east conflicts
I don't need to see poetry promoting Mideast politics
Words and lies from unarmed man  and a thesaurus
Lets stick with American values and Democracy
It has worked for over two hundred years
Why the illegals are coming here in the first place
We do need to send home the discontented home

As my forefathers, speak the language pay the taxes
And not be expected to live on a free ride
