Ben Hur Hur

You know that history had to be written
and each life lived will be lived as smitten
with curtain calls and long applause
the Easter Bunny and Santa Claus

For them there is a blank uplifting
of cockle shells and white sand sifting
plenty of tools to circumvent rules
switching genre to forge new fools

Rob the landlord to pay the rent
thats neither cheap nor over spent
like the splendor of the bartender
dependent on the repeat offender

A Poem That Keeps Me Going

I’ve heard the great philosophers stew
that we come from nothing — we end there too
and whats in between is a bugaboo
but not for me I’m a soul that true

to that fact that fact that beautiful fact that fact

Lets take a ride off the beaten track
to the light that is sweet as a cracker jack
where the idea of nothing can’t detract

from that fact that fact that beautiful fact that fact

When I get lost in the complexity
something strange gets ahold of me
I stop myself to plainly see
that theres a lot going on beneath reality

from that fact that fact that beautiful fact that fact

Where the universe fits like a shoulder pack
as big as it is, I’m bigger than that
this spirit inside keeps me coming back

to that fact that fact that beautiful fact that fact

For nature errs on beauty’s side
like the morning glory I take it in stride
a clear blue day stands bonafide
and this thought is magnified

by that fact that fact that beautiful fact that fact

Four Twenty

It enhances the moment
at the cost of memory
and when taken to extreme
approaches extra-sensory

Medicine can be this or that
what you see is clearly not
how you see, if gods exist,
adds nothing to their plot

Smoke, then think and think some more
at what cost is any benefit
life is performance onstage
I prefer the orchestra pit

My Daughter’s Colorful Hair

are the roles filled with people
or do people fill their role ?

is the material world always
at conflict with the soul ?

belief is leaving the thinking
to some one far away

but if you keep making the best of things
you can expect the best of things to stay
