Feeling Old (New Poem)















Okay....Okay....So maybe I'm not that old but 
damn I sure do feel like it sometimes.
My back aches and my legs and arms seem to 
crack and pop from time to time.
What the hell is going on?
When did I go to bed feeling like 20 and 
end up waking up sounding like 80?

PBR (New Poem)

















Sometimes labels need to be thrown out the window.
Yeah, so what if it is cheap beer.
As long as it still taste good....right?
And just like the American flag in all it's glory the brightly
colored Pabst Blue Ribbon beer continues to shine through with every sip, every gulp, and every chug.

Echoes To Your Soul (New Poem)
















Welcome aboard.
Glad to have you here.
Wisdom echoes here and there.
Bouncing all around like a ball waiting 
for someone to catch it.
I have no soul I said to no one in particular, 
yet I do have this kick ass soul patch....KA-BOOM!

Twinings Earl Grey Tea

Recently I started drinking tea.  

So far I find Twinings Earl Grey Tea to be very good 
and also very relaxing.  Thank You "Star Trek: TNG" 

The Smiths



The Smiths "The Boy With The Thorn In His Side" is such 
a great song.  Love the vocals and also the guitar parts are very catchy.

Jacket Weather (a Halloween poem)










The leaves are starting to fall.
Jacket weather is finally here.
A smile appears on every kid and even adult who refuses 
to grow up as Halloween costumes and decorations fill up 
the store aisles and neighborhood shops.
Classic horror movies splash on the TV screen at mid-night.
Ghosts, Goblins, Devils, and Witches.
Vampires, Werewolves, Mummies, and other 
haunting things that give us fright.
Entertain our fear of the unknown as 
we scream in delight.

There's Just Something About Hank (New Poem)
















Country music, I normally don't listen to it.
The only Country music that I actually like is that 
of Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, and Waylon Jennings.
Hank Williams Sr. on the other hand is a different story.
At  first I thought his voice was a little bit too twangy.
But after awhile it starts to sink in.
You start to realize the beauty in it.
You feel it and know it.
There's something real about it.
That's when you start to listen to it again.
