the friends of art

it's art that finds
the kind of friend
that can depend
upon the trend
within the heart
that surely binds
however far apart

so now it's time
to post a lot
like in the past
when pens were hot
and poems came fast
although they might not rhyme

as after all
it's not beyond the blind
to understand a mime

a rainy night

wait right
here i'll
call a

it's just a rainy
night in midtown
a rainy night in midtown

seems like it's raining
on all the boys & girls

it seems like we'll get home with umbrellas unfurled

keep out - this means you

since the dawn of race relations
tribes have looked with deep suspicion
at the neighbor tribes who trespassed
where our own tribes did their fishin'

now that rivers lakes and oceans
see their fish stocks are depleted
competition for what's left there
will only be repeated

what this means for future friendship
is the dawn of race relations
is heading for the sunset
and more fighting between nations

keep out! this means you
and you and you and you and you and you and you ...

piece plant

sandy arabia negotiating
is better than shooting and bombing and hating
but wait i forgot the hot desert weather
they do all of that at the same time together

perhaps if we tell them
we love their suggestion
they'll believe us without
a walk-through inspection

and when we assert
that we've left all that land
they'll understand that we lie just like they do
and isn't peace grand?
