I dedicate my life
May she live forever in my cosmic memes

Isolation Blues

During these trying times
we huddle at home
afraid to go out
afraid of the dreaded
General Corona that is out
and his evil secret armies
keeping us all at home
terrified of becoming a victim
a corona virus statistic
what a way to go out
no way do I want to end my life
to out out that way
so we will endure this day
these isolation blues

You're still a young man


tower of power
was the band
for me
back in the day

the greatest funk band
of all time
proudly East Bay Grease
multi-racial, multi-cultural

great horn section
of all
they did it right

and their best song
You're still a young man
was the best make out song
of all time

best song to slow dance
with a potential lover
at a party

best love song
of the 70's
and I still recall it

and all the woman
i danced to the song
with back in the day

and I still feel
that I am still a young man
with the love of my life
playing the song
of my life

My Life's Drama

My life has been like a drama
a mad cap romcom drama
perhaps a K drama
or a Bollywood drama
or a Hollywood romcom classic drama
for you see in my fairy tale drama
i met the girl of my dreams
eight years later
I had the last dream
she said don't worry we'll meet soon
she walked off the bus that day
and into my life
and became my wife

Alone

From childhood's hour I have not been
as others were, I have not seen
as others saw
in these dark times we live in
i am afraid of being alone
dying all alone

Last Acorn

the last acorn on earth
was lonely
the old oak trees
were dying

and humanity was gone
killed off by the corona virus
round two
that erupted out of China
like a bat out of hell
killing almost all humans

and without humans
well somethings just did not happen
and the oak trees were abandoned
and he was the last acorn
the last of his species alive

he wept when he realized
that he would die
all alone

Ode to my morning coffee

every morning
I like to start my day

hot glorious coffee
I pound it down

Cats and Dogs Contrapuntal poem


cats and dog people
are so different
some are cat people
some are dog people
and like cats and dogs
they don't get along
cat people are liberal elites
dog people are down to earth
cat people are mostly women
or gay in the popular imagination
dog people are mostly rugged men
again according to popular imagination
cats are alien creatures
perhaps from another dimension
dogs are friends to humans
for dogs are humans are alike
cats are strange aloof alien
evil self centered creatures
dogs are friendly, down to earth
and loyal to their master
if we ever encounter
an alien species
if it is a cat based species
we will be at war
if it is a dog based species
we will become best friends
as long as we are in charge
and they know that
that is why
in the end
I guest I now prefer
dogs over cats

God created the world

God set the world up
then he let it runs its course

Finally I wake

tossing and turning
I try to sleep
admit the terrible nightmares
that haunt my dreams
finally I wake
ready to embrace my fate
telling the dangerous delusions
to go away
as I embrace
the dawning Sun
confident that I will find
the time and grace
to overcome the terrible fate
that await me every date


Window of Promise

every day I wake up
and look out my window
on the world

in the morning dawning light
the world seems so full
of promise

promised delights
promised love
promised friendship

as I look out the window
and see life
unfold in all its magnificence

the birds chirping
words of love
the cats grinning smiles
at me

welcoming me
with the promise
of life and love

I close the window
look at my sleeping love
and thank god
that we found each other

and the promised love
that I see outside
the window of life

Nature's Bounty Awaits Me

Looking out at the window
at nature's bounty
at the springtime air
fills us with awe
as the birds
and even the bees
call out to me
saying it is time
for me
to escape
for a walk in the woods
with my friends
and fans
in mother nature's embrace

Alone No More

from childhood edge
I have been alone
alone
all by myself
loneliness
fills my heart
as I look out
at the world
filled with lonely thoughts
then I look about me
and see the love
of my life
my lovely wife
standing there

standing there
and these loneliness
these blues of mine
fade away
into nothingness
lonely no more
for the rest of my life
she will be my life
together
we will face the future
defeating the loneliness
alone no more
forever
until the day I die

Has God Anointed Donald Trump as our leader?

God has anointed Trump
as our leader
in these dark dangerous times
who am I to disagree

"I literally went to the Throne Room of God,"

"There was a mist that was coming off the water,
and I went to the throne of God,
and I didn't see God's face clearly,
but I saw the face of God...

He put a mantle (on me)
and it was a very distinct mantle
... I saw it very distinctly.

The color was like a goldish,
a yellowish goldish...
And then I saw the Earth for a moment,

and (God) brought me back,
and he put me in certain places,
one being the White House,
one being certain continents."

From my perspective,
there is a Cyrus
anointing on Trump,"


"I predicted his nomination,
and I believe
he is the chaos candidate
set apart to navigate

us through the chaos
that is coming to America.

I think America
is due for a shaking
regardless of who is in office.

I believe the 45th president
is meant to be an Isaiah
45 Cyrus

"[God] makes that very clear
in the Bible
where he tells us
That he raises up kings
and destroys kingdoms,"

"He even calls a pagan king,
Cyrus, his anointed,
or his servant to do
the things
that he wants him to do."

"I want to tell you
that the Jewish people
have a long memory,
so we remember

the proclamation of the great king,
Cyrus the Great,
Persian king, 2500 years ago,"

"He proclaimed
that the Jewish exiles in Babylon
could come back
and rebuild our Temple in Jerusalem ...

We remember
how a few weeks ago,
President Donald J. Trump
Recognized Jerusalem
as Israel's capital.

Mr. President,
this will be remembered
by our people through the ages."

But the bible also has a warning
About our dear leader
Our great leader

The bible says
2 Timothy 3:1-9

But understand this,
that in the last days
there will come times of difficulty.

For people will be lovers of self,
lovers of money,
proud, arrogant, abusive,
disobedient to their parents,
ungrateful, unholy, heartless,
unappeasable, slanderous,
without self-control, brutal,
not loving good,
treacherous, reckless,
swollen with conceit,
lovers of pleasure
rather than lovers of God,
having the appearance of godliness,
but denying its power. Avoid such people. ...

finally at last the bible spoke
the truth to power

Donald J Trump
the most ungodly of all
must be opposed
for he is the anti-Christ
that the bible warns us about

in the end days
there will be false prophets
rumors of war
plague
and natural disasters
and we are living
in the end days
