It May Be At The Same Time And Same Place

it may be at the same time and place
our minds meet without the usual intent

we take this lonely trip
we like to dip and drip

we sail the boat to the magic island
of our mutual desires we bond

we step ashore
love waits at the fore

you will be in the arms of another
and i too shall find & then kiss her

Makes You Laugh and Cry At the Same Time-2

Quasimodo was in the stocks
and Esmeralda felt pity for him
and gave him water.

They release him
and he tries to get back to the church.
He has to run the gauntlet of the crowd
who spit on him
beat him as he passes
curse him,
bloody him.

He gets the church door
staggering
as rocks pummel him from behind
and slams the doors
and with his back to the door
raises his hand to cover his mouth
and murmurs'

'She gave me water! '

Makes me laugh and cry at the same time.

He has discovered love.
She has offered pity.

Makes You Laugh and Cry At the Same Time-1

In the Woody Allen movie
he is standing in front of a dark painting
along side a woman dressed all in black.

'What do you think it means? he said.
Without looking at him
she says;
'it expresses the dark, filthy destiny
of the human race,
Its expresses degradation,
the horror of living.
The hopelessness.'

Something to that effect.

Woody Allen says:
What are you doing Thursday night? '
She says
'Committing suicide.'
He says'
'What are you doing Wednesday night? '

Woody is focused on getting a date.

She is focused on Darkness.

Both want
what they want.

Makes you laugh and cry at the same time.

Candy and Music are the same

As a friend of mine said once music is like candy you have to throw away all the rappers. That friend of mine is right.
Music can make you smile, laugh and sad all at the same time but all the rappers take our music and add there cussing and dirty way then it can no longer be called music cuzz rappers take away the meaning and the emotion so now it is no more then some one yelling out cuss words and ditty things now I ask you please open your candy and throw away the rappers so all that is left is the sweet emotion

You Will Always Be The Same

Go on to the street to the cars in the pouring rain
Go on to the bus that left us in the dust and the flames
And when the son meets the father
It'll be something smarter for the pain
But you will always be the same
You will always be the same
Go on little girl, feet twirl, go and make him smile
Go on like the rumbling drums of the march of time
And when the son meets the dad
It'll be pretty bad for the pain
But you'll always be the same
You will always be the same
You will always be the same
Go on to the ones with the smoking guns in the heat
Go on to the wars we won, they came home, they made up
And when the father meets the son,
And the blood makes us better than the gain
You will always be the same

Low Finisterre 1007 Losing Its Identity By The Same Time

It’s BBC Radio 4
but the familiar

litany of
THE SHIPPING FORECAST

is alas...maimed
not the same.

They changed
a national institution

of the mind
redeveloped the mental landscape.

They have even dare to have it
moved

by 15 minutes
and renamed

FINISTERRE
...FITZROY.

L ike
...why?

It isn’t cricket
...is it?

This the beloved
Lord’s Prayer of places.

Not even a great British
outrage could save it

change
the changes.

For years
its well worn sounds

embedded in
our head

the national psyche

as we drifted off
to sleep

perchance to dream
with SAILING BY.

But secretly we recite
night by night

re-instating
FINISTERRE

le tting FITZROY
sink to the bottom of our minds

drown

as we cuddle up
to the long loved

old familiar
sounds.

This be the last time we use the phrase 'Slumdog

We, as Indians, have reasons
To be proud of having
Created history by the film
“Slumdog Millionaire”
At the same time, we, as human beings,
Have to have hung our heads for
Having created slums

Slum, as it means
An overcrowded area of a city,
Where the housing is in a very bad condition
And people live in unhygienic conditions
With no basic facilities

And who created slums,
Not the people residing there
But those whose greed has brought
These slum dwellers into these
Unfit-for-living conditions

The technicalities employed in
Filming this movie deserve all praise
While the different ways of living
Of the slum dwellers equally deserve attention
Of the entire human race
For correction and improvement

The film was declared to be
The best-directed
While the slum tribes have no directions
And they have no one to direct

The film was declared to be
The best film
While the slum where the film was shot
Is the worst place
For any human being

Let the recognition of the film
Bring to light the plight of slumdogs
To the fore
And let the human race do everything
Possible to move these people
Out of the slums, wherever they are,
And to help them live a decent, if not better, living

We shall be doing a great service
If this becomes the last ever time
We use this phrase “Slumdog”

Birds of the same feather

Birds of the same feather flock together.
I am an outsider and the door is always open for me to enter.
If I will get a right path I will enter
nd you find me never here.

Ill Never Be The Same

Matty malneck / frank signorelli / gus kahn
Ill never be the same
Guys have lost their meaning for me
Ill never be the same
Nothins what it once used to be
And when the song birds that sing
Tell me its spring
I cant believe their song
Once love was king
But kings can be wrong
Ill never be the same
There is such an ache in my heart
Ill never be the same
Since were apart
But theres a lot that a smile can hide
And I know deep down inside
Ill never be the same
Never be the same again

Nothing Stays The Same

In this old world of ours,
nothing stays the same.
Two hearts so much in love
could easily break tomorrow
or when the next day comes.
Two lives could be easily shattered
as nothing stays the same.
Hate can easily turn to love
the very same way.
One day you could hate someone,
next day you could love them to bits.
The future is not ours to share
for nothing ever stays the same.
Today you could say you are leaving
and tomorrow you’ll come home again;
as long as this old world keeps turning,
nothing will ever stay the same.

Multitasking

your body finally succumbs
to sickness of multitasking

talking and listening at the same
time to two or more persons
behind and infront of you

the lack of sincerity
and full attention to a thing
a person
hurt because you have to use
not just a face

not just a hand but too many hands
doing many things
at the same time too many minds
thinking so many thoughts
all at once

after all you are no superman
you are just
the simple man trying to be
much better
than yourself

the body weakens
the mind surrenders
you need sleep
and be away for once
from this ever demanding world

of pretenses

Aren't They Playing On The Same Team?

Why is he apologizing for being an achiever?
Why has he placed himself in that position?
Without him they would not have accomplished,
Anything.

'He feels he has to do it.
If he doesn't,
He feels the others may resent...
His abilities to get things done.
And they want to be the ones,
To prove him wrong.'

But...
Aren't they playing on the same team?
That doesn't make sense.

'Yeah.
And that is what's complicated about it.
He is responsible for recovering any lost respect,
They had.
And yet,
They all feel they deserve the credit...
For allowing him to express his intelligence.
And for some reason he is resented.'

Maybe he shouldn't play at all.

'He has already tried that.
And they accused him of thinking he was better,
Than the rest of them.'

I Thank The Lord For The Night Time

THANK THE LORD FOR THE NIGHT TIME
Neil Diamond
Daytime turns me off, and I don't mean maybe
Nine-to-five ain't takin' me where I'm bound
When it's done, I run out to see my baby
We got groovin' when the sun goes down
I thank the Lord for the night time
To forget the day
A day of up-, uptight time
Baby, chase it away
I get relaxation
It's a time to groove
I thank the Lord for the night time
I thank the Lord for you
I'll talk about plans now Baby, I got plenty
Nothing ever seems to turn out the way it should
Talk about money, girl, I ain't got any
Seems like just one time I'm feeling good
I thank the Lord for the night time
To forget the day
A day of up-, uptight time
Baby, chase it away
I get relaxation
It's a time to groove
I thank the Lord for the night time
I thank the Lord for you

IF' Given The Opportunity

If one is in possession of anything,
One has earned and deserves...
Why would others expect,
That this person will beg from them...
To be welcomed with acceptance?
And just for kicks do a tap dance routine.
'IF' given the opportunity to entertain,
Those sitting on neighborhood stoops...
In discussion about what goes on across the street.
While standing on corners are others protecting their turf,
As if to supply security for vacant lots filled with trash.

If one is in possession of anything,
One has earned and deserves...
Why would others expect,
That this person will beg from them...
To be welcomed with acceptance?
And just for kicks do a tap dance routine.
'IF' given the opportunity to entertain them,
Until they give approval of one's ability...
To tap and smile at the same time.
Just to prove one's affiliation and representation.

This is the last time....

This is the last time

The last time you will ever see me
The last time I will look into your eyes
The last words we’ll ever exchange
And the last memory I have of you
This is the last time

The last time I believe your sweet lies
The last time I remember our past
The last time I thank you for your friendship
And the last time I hate you for leaving me
This is the last time

The last time I blame myself for this broken heart
The last time I cry over you
The last time I feel our past happiness slipping away
And the last time I see you as anything more than a stranger
This is the last time

The last time I’ll ever give into my delusions of you
The last time I’ll say your name with such recognition
The last time I’ll erase the future I had drawn in my mind
And the last time I’ll ever bother you
This is the last timeI promise.

The Fallen Angels

They come on to my clean
sheet of paper and leave a Rorschach blot.
They do not do this to be mean,
they do it to give me a sign
they want me, as Aubrey Beardsley once said,
to shove it around till something comes.
Clumsy as I am,
I do it.
For I am like them -
both saved and lost,
tumbling downward like Humpty Dumpty
off the alphabet.

Each morning I push them off my bed
and when they get in the salad
rolling in it like a dog,
I pick each one out
just the way my daughter
picks out the anchovies.
In May they dance on the jonquils,
wearing out their toes,
laughing like fish.
In November, the dread month,
they suck the childhood out of the berries
and turn them sour and inedible.

Yet they keep me company.
They wiggle up life.
They pass out their magic
like Assorted Lifesavers.
They go with me to the dentist
and protect me form the drill.
At the same time,
they go to class with me
and lie to my students.

O fallen angel,
the companion within me,
whisper something holy
before you pinch me
into the grave.

The Same Back-at-cha!

You wished me well.
And peace released in my life,
For me to tell.
With good health and prosperity,
That would grow and swell.
And my happiness to flow.
To know in my heart it is so!

The same back-at-cha!
Kept stacked in a pack,
And wrapped in active laughter.
To get you sitting relaxed...
With nothing on your mind to matter.
But you and the best of that!
But you and the best of that!
The same back-at-cha!
Kept stacked in a pack,
And wrapped in active laughter.
Getting what you give to match.
Getting what you give to match.
The same back-at-cha!

You wished me well.

Kept stacked in a pack,
And wrapped in active laughter.

And getting what you give to match.
The same back-at-cha!
The same back-at-cha!
The same back-at-cha!
Getting what you give to match.

To write regular verses destroys an infinite number of fine possibilities, but at the same time it suggests a multitude of distant and totally unexpected thoughts.

To be awarded a prize which takes its name from an illustrious Dutchman who at the same time was a great citizen of Europe and through his writings did so much to open up our modern world of sensibility and thought is indeed a most signal honour.
