The insignificant ones

As a father, one is heard;
As a mother, one is heard.
The insignificant ones
Are thus compensated.

The Firm Ones Aren't Always The Best to Choose

Relationships of any kind,
Should be chosen very wisely.

And the older one gets,
The selecting of relationships...
Is much like picking tomatoes.

The firm ones aren't always the best to choose,
Especially when cooking them...
With corn, onions and green peppers.

The softer ones seem to create,
A more delicious taste.

The Shallow Ones....

the shallow ones,
do not underestimate
those trivial ones
serve you
when the most important ones
desert you,

the sins sometimes
you commit
simply because
there is no better use
for the
quest of holiness
when divinity leaves you
in doubt
you cling to anything
that can help you leave
because self-annihilation
is not a choice.

The Hollow Ones

the hollow ones
live in a hollow world,
walk a hollow path
with hollow hearts.

speaking often, never talking.
listening, but never hearing.
touching, but never feeling.
inhaling, but never exhaling.

with nothing behind their
hollow eyes.... insulated,
burning nuclear fuel
in a carbon world...

an ingrown toenail
on the foot...
of an angry God!
the hollow ones...

The Only Ones God Knows

For YEARS...
They laughed at the others,
From the stoop of the master's house!
Now that the house is going up in flames...
Who will they turn to?
Where will they go?
Since those they laughed at...
Are the only ones God knows!

'Hey...
Give me five!
That was a good 'meek' job,
Ya'll did back there!
Ready for the next mission?
This one will be less difficult! '

We The Busy Ones

we proclaim
we are the busy ones
they call us the
bees
we work all day
extending our arms and legs
to the night
we work till dawn
we too make love
we compose ourselves
arrange our faces
like flowers and leaves
and twigs
we work and work
till we find that
rest....

don't think of death


go find another date
gather the ripe dates
in the desert
have a big plate
savor the taste in your palate.

All The Good Ones Are Gone

How many times have I heard it said,
especially by ladies out there.
They see someone with happiness
and wish they had a share
in all the happiness and fun.
When you ask them why
they don’t have someone,
they turn, frown, and simply say
all the good ones are gone.
This view isn’t only with the ladies,
I know a lot men who
will say the same sort of thing too,
that all the good ones are gone.

Who Are the Embarrassed Ones

We had a special spark inside
Liquid fire spurs our souls
A moment of pure passion
Deep under the silver moonlight
We cover all the basis of mush
A whole grouping of love
In every part of ourselves
We seductively brought together
All moments of sexuality
Until it is known we are not alone
And we see the gathering here
Curiosity maybe at our lust
And full passion we did display
Now who are the embarrassed ones
For they don’t tarry when the lights are on

Weasel words with easy starts are not the first ones to our hearts

Weasel words
with easy starts
are not the first
ones to our hearts
when the cold cadaver light of day
takes one of those we love away

After the funeral
- when the funeral was over
- After we had buried him

We walked across the grass
We walked across the grass
leaving footprints in the dew

footprints in the dew
How was that possible
’God’s name how was that possible

with him forever
And now, forever
footprints forever

looking back across the grass
The warmth of the day
losing us all, forever

The Reckless Ones

The ones that do not listen,
Seem the ones who can hurt the most.
The reckless ones!
Living without a care in the world.
The ones who come with their misunderstandings.
Wanting not to hear.
But wishing to be held!
And fearing misjudgements that do not teach.

The ones that do not listen,
Seem the ones who can hurt the most.
The reckless ones!
Living without a care in the world.
To leave those who loved them...
In a sorrow that is undenied!
Those now who try their best,
To hide their loneliness!

The Forgiven Ones

the forgiven ones
share their plates & their fires
wear hand-me-down clothes
& old worn out shoes...

the forgiven ones
plant their seeds in the earth
plow thru the darkness
waiting for the sun & the rain

the forgiven ones
stand by the woman giving birth
take the orphans to their breasts
& call now home

the forgiven ones
share the same language
let go of their anger
& carry each other's loads

the forgiven ones
pray with their hands
sing with their tears
& fight with their hearts...

the forgiven ones...

Throw Back The Little Ones

Lost in the barrio I walk like an injun
So carlo wont suspect somethings wrong here
I dance in place
And paint my face
And act like I belong here
Chorus:
Throw back the little ones
And pan-fry the big ones
Use tact, poise and reason
And gently squeeze them
Hot licks and rhetoric
Dont count much for nothing
Be glad if you can use what you borrow
So I pawn my crown
For a ride uptown
And buy it back tomorrow
Chorus
Done like a matador I pray for the weekend
And hope the little girls still throw roses
Else Ill change my bait
And move upstate
Before the season closes
Chorus

The Lost Ones

Somewhere is music from the linnets' bills,
And thro' the sunny flowers the bee-wings drone,
And white bells of convolvulus on hills
Of quiet May make silent ringing, blown
Hither and thither by the wind of showers,
And somewhere all the wandering birds have flown;
And the brown breath of Autumn chills the flowers.

But where are all the loves of long ago?
O little twilight ship blown up the tide,
Where are the faces laughing in the glow
Of morning years, the lost ones scattered wide
Give me your hand, O brother, let us go
Crying about the dark for those who died.

The Lucky Ones

Sometimes youre sentimental
I know exactly what to do
And if Im temperamental
You calm me down and you pull me through
(chorus)
We are the lucky ones
We have one another
When the end of the day has come
I return to you
Life can be so demanding
Sometimes its hard to make it through
Its love and understanding
You give to me, I give to you
Chorus
Our own fairy tale
Our favorite bedtime story
One that we wont forget
We fell in love
We knew from the start
Wed always be together
The first time that we met
Cant forget
Chorus
All alone in the setting sun
Ill have you and youll have me

The Old Ones

The old ones knew that black was hate,
White garment purity and red one sin;
They spoke the language of the trees
And opened veins to let love in.

These old ones, feeling life was brief
And brittle as the fire-baked shard,
Could find no seat for sentiment,
So mended weakness with a sword.

In them the heart was made of gold,
But mind was forged of steel so sharp
That hand which plucked the harp could shape
From father's skull a drinking cup.

The old ones' fashion we have lost,
Whose red is passion, white deceit;
In casting devil from the flesh,
Who perish with the bread we eat.

Sonnet- The Modern World

The modern man eats worms, insects and dirt,
And finds scientific reasons for the same!
With marriages at stake, men, women flirt;
The family in chaos! what a shame!

The foreign cultures worm their way to us;
Wrong-doers go scot-free many a time;
The ignorant ones follow, become worse;
Caught bad are the sane ones with lives sublime!

Man has become to core most immoral!
He has given up his sense of values;
And practicing sex most unnatural,
He lives in nudity with painted hues.

Through rapid advances that Science has made,
Allowed has man, his conscience to fade.

The First One - Parody Iris WILKINSON - The Last Ones

irst white horse of all
prancing past pale pink dawn,
before the first bulrush hall
rose up by the Nile's flood corn.
Unbridled coursed shadowfax,
unprinted by some 'Evening Star'.
Self-styled poet, last straw, lacks
the swish of a man's new car
over the ashphalt
far from Raupo huts.
As the living dead rose,
gibbering sleeplessly,
avoiding strong sunlight,
'And there shook the world's first paw
on the new world's shore,
while 'the rain it raineth every day' spluttered dank earth,
'with much to pour before
poor Man understanding finds.'

after Iris Wilkinson, The Last Ones

(4 December 1995)

The Younger Ones

The younger ones,
Do not wish any part of it.
The fragmentation solicited...
Or the family divisiveness.

They have witnessed what the elders have done.
And this has made many of them turn away quick.
Because the younger ones wish,
Not to have any of the negative rifts!

They have witnessed what the elders have done.
And the elders are the ones that do not get it!
The younger ones,
Do not wish any part of this.

In their hearts and in their minds,
The youngers ones may not express it.
But their actions are quite dramatic.
And observing that is obvious and emphatic.
The younger ones have had it!

The Great Ones

The great ones move us in ways we cannot understand-
They bring us to feelings beyond those we knew we had-
The great ones bring out beauty in us joy in us pain in us sadness in us
Beyond we knew we had-
They make us sing and dream inside beyond any beauty we ever knew- before

The great ones move us
To be more than we ever are just by ourselves-

Is it a wonder then that we love the great ones and need the great ones and live through the great ones
And all their poems and songs and music and thoughts and stories and all they create-

Oh the great ones
How they give us more life and make us love life more-

The Young Ones

The young ones,
Darling were the young ones,
And young ones shouldnt be afraid.
To live, love
While the flame is strong,
For we wont be the young ones very long.
Tomorrow,
Why wait till tomorrow,
Tomorrow sometimes never comes.
Love, me,
Theres a song to be sung
And the best time is to sing while were young.
Once in every lifetime
Comes a love like this.
I need you and you need me.
Oh my darling cant you see.
Young dreams
Should be dreamed together,
Young hearts shouldnt be afraid.
And some day when the years have flown
Darling, this will teach the young ones of our own.
The young ones
Darling, were the young ones
The young ones
Darling, were the young ones.
