Yes We Can, Stand For Change We Can Believe In!

Are we finally coming of age
Are the answers within reach
Can we take our Country back
Fight what the corporations preach?

Will it be for, we the people
The way, it was meant to be
Can we stop the loss of our rights
Return to, the land of the free?

One man cannot change it all
He can't take it all apart read more »

Super Duper Tuesday
(or maybe, "Next to the Last Chance!")

We get our chance at the polls
If you don't vote, don't complain
This time, to choose who we'll pick
When November comes again.

Let's hope the machines are fixed
That the ballots are counted true
That, there's no "fix" with our votes
Or old paper might replace the new.

Some say, “It's the status quo!” read more »

Independents' Day 2008

Lately, not much to be proud of
And it gets worse every year
And if changes aren't made soon
It just might be too late, I fear.

We have those who lied to us
To take us to war and worse
To leave an American legacy
Of an everlasting curse.

We have those who don't mind
Sending our Troops off to fight
And then when those Vets come home read more »

They Won't Be Home For Christmas

Another year, American Heroes
Are fighting in a foreign land
And there is still, no end in sight
A part of life they hadn't planned.

They do their duty without question
And they all stand proud and tall
They are placed there in harm's way
As they answer, our Country's call.

They'll get by the best they can
And improvise ingenious ways read more »

ANOTHER "DAY OF INFAMY"
March 20, 2003

An unprovoked attack in Forty-one
That some say, could have been prevented
Sadly, now we have another one
From lies our Government invented.

We are coming on five years of War
More than forty-three hundred killed
Just so, as some say, the Pres's wishes
For his vain revenge, could be fulfilled.

There's untold numbers of wounded read more »

ONE LOST, IS TOO MANY

One hundred twenty Vets a week
That's more than seventeen per day
Who couldn't handle things they saw
Or the price, they were asked to pay.

Wounds of War don't always show
And feelings are not always spoken
Sometimes the others cannot see
When will, heart, and soul are broken.

It's finally becoming very clear
That, most who go through that hell read more »


The following written last year but sadly, still applies.
Maybe, next year?

THE WARRIOR'S HOLIDAY

The holidays are upon us
And Christmas is drawing near
But for far too many Families
There won't be a "Happy New Year".

Their loved ones are off at War
In some far-off foreign land
Some of them are gone forever
Not at all, what they had planned. read more »

THE NATIONAL DAY OF MOURNING"
(or "THE AMERICAN WAY")

For some it's a Day of Thanks
And for some a Day to Mourn
With those conflicting stories
Of how Thanksgiving was born.

Some say a friendly gathering
Of Pilgrims and the Indians
People from a far off Land
And the real Americans.

We may never know for sure
The true account of History
But there are no doubts today read more »

THE CRUDE POLITICS OF
PETROPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRADICALS AND INDEPUNDITS

Where do we get these people
Who fight new energy
Then, raise the price of oil
For their greedy industry?

Where do we get these people
Who build the cars we drive
Who fight new mileage standards
And things that might keep us alive?

Where do we get these people
Who, once customers came first read more »

A National Moment of Remembrance

That poem about where “poppies blow”
And, “the crosses, row on row”
Still rings true, these ninety years
After written, still brings tears.

We still have Dead, “amid the guns”
And lose our young and our loved ones
Those who lived, “short days ago”
Who, “felt dawn, saw sunset glow”.

In Flanders Fields, “the poppy red” read more »
