The first calculators tended to sell for $400 or $500. Today, you can get a pretty good one for 4 or $5.

Seeing Something For The First Time

I am so grateful,
That your perceptions of who I am...
Has nothing to do with me at all.
And who it is I know myself to be.
However...
Do not let my mentioning this,
Stop you at all from your beliefs.

You have done more for my popularity,
Or the lack of it...
Than anyone else I could hire,
To keep what I do to make ME interested.

I am serious.
Why are you looking at me like that?
As if you are seeing something for the first time.
Stop it!
I am not going to pay you a cent.
I just wanted you to know how I felt about it.
Will you cut that out!

If you are going to talk about me,
At least we should meet.
Don't you think?
I do.
And yes...
This is my real voice.

My Bow To The First Man

My Bow to the first man
To the first man and women who born
On this earth
To the first man who eat something
To come out of hungry
TO the first man who made a tent for him
To the first man who invented fire
To cook his food
To the first man who found water
Which satisfy his thirst
To the first man who seeded
First plant to produce food
To the first man who used
Sharp object to kill wild animal
For his survival
To the first man who made horse
As his travel animal
To the first man who found
Agriculture as his necessity
To the first man who invented
Language for communication
To the first man who made his
Life with wife
To the first man who got a child
Of his own to build family
To first man who invented
Pain reliever for wounds
To the first man who invented
Social life by making villages
I bow my head before their feet
And remember them always

July The First

The grey roos sheltering beneath the pine trees it is a wet and a wintery Winter's day
Yet in the rain the magpie he is piping on a high branch of a tall mountain gray
And yet the weather is not cold or chilly it does not seem a bad start to July
The Winter sun by the rain is hidden and overcast looking the morning sky
The Southern Winter I feel is far more pleasant than the Southern Summer at least the weather never gets too cold
That I do find mild Winter days a bit chilly has to be proof I must be getting old
On the Winter flowering trees the red wattlebirds are calling they have a certain hoarseness in their cry
And the pied currawongs the dark crow sized birds their karrawang notes are uttering as through the park from tree to tree they fly,
The white cockatoos in the drizzling rain are squawking from other birds them one cannot mistake
They are at their noisiest in the gloam of evening and in the early morning at daybreak
Three species of white cockatoo the sulphur crested and long billed and short billed corella by voice and appearance from each other not hard to identify
They live in large flocks and to each other nearby,
The rain drizzling down from a sky that's gloomy gray
But for July the first it is mild enough for a Winter's day.

On The First Of Seven's Night

sown for you blackberry's delight
on the first of seven's night

sown for you blackberry's delight
on the first of seven's night

for the world, ag'n christmas sight
on the first of seven's night
when the light of heaven is light
it's the world of two thousand seven bright

sown for you blackberry's delight
on the first of seven's night

sown for you blackberry's delight
on the first of seven's night

see, she is smiling in alone
ah! in love she is gone
'n' now she has got the tone
to say! to wish a new morn..ing

sown for you blackberry's delight
on the first of seven's night

sown for you blackberry's delight
on the first of seven's night

oh! it's the hit of 12'o clock
but who are they in morning flock
look it's you 'n' that is me
in between it's bond of thee

sown for you blackberry's delight
on the first of seven's night

sown for you blackberry's delight
on the first of seven's night

hey! who is playing these notes so cute
it must be octaves from lord krishnas flute
no! on the first of seven with the rythm inherent
a boy to a girl with the happys of heaven

sown for you blackberry's delight
on the first of seven's night

sown for you blackberry's delight
on the first of seven's night

and you! what are you doing over here
go to the fields and harvest your share
my blackberrys ripen with the dawn of the sun
hares and birds may already be having there fun

sown for you blackberry's delight
on the first of seven's night

sown for you blackberry's delight
on the first of seven's night

Hit The Deck

Im the minstrel man, the cleaning man,
The pole man, the shoeshine man
Im a nigger man, watch me dance {unknown movie}
[ice-t]
I put the lyrics on the paper with the pen
Evil e makes the records spin
Islam drops the beats that you rock to
Thought that I would never get you? got you
Doggin the floor like you know you never done before
How could a brother be so hardcore
And still keep you on the floor like a maniac
Thats your question? well ima answer that
Im on the mic tonight Im here to do it right
Ice, the capital t, airtight
Coolest of the cool, a mack on a mission
Step to me fool - youre missin
Minus, gone, pow, youre outta here
This aint no game to me, this is my career
Throw me a mic, plug it in, bet!
I wont be happy til the dancefloors wet
I aint no rookie, Im a microphone vet
Evil es on the set, hit the deck!
{*scratching be easy on the cut (3x)
And no mistakes allowed -> rakim*}
[ice-t]
E-m-c-e-e, i-c-e-t, a-n-d, dj evil e
Doggin the deck like its never been done before
You had enough? more!
Here we go, Im about to blow up
Dont you dare bite my rhymes, Ill make you throw up
Poison soaked in an acid bath
Swallow homeboy, your throatll need a skin graft
Toss it up, while the dj known as evil cuts
You wanna know whats happenin - what?
The beat become my soul, Im goin out of control
Look in my face as my eyeballs roll
Back in my head and the mic glows red
Step in my face and youll wind up dead
{*slap*} yo, thanks, I needed that
I was posessed by this treacherous track
Watch out word this aint no joke
A sucker tried to flex and his arm got broke
Dont make a move that youll regret
Evil es on the set, hit the deck!
{*scratched kick it (4x)*}
[ice-t]
You start to think and wonder bout how its done
An emcee? maybe I could be one
Drop the thought, get a job, change your mind
To be a dope mc takes time
Eight years of mine, no time for draggin
You wanna be an mc? get off the bandwagon!
But if its in your heart, get a pen
Dont stop writin til the inkflow ends
Work and work and dont halfstep
Dog the mic every chance you get
Motivation must be kept
Stay down and build your rep
Yo so let me demonstrate, rappin as a fine art
And when Im finished, you can take this rap apart
Analyze my elements and tactics
First Im over there, and then Im back to this
I jumble topics, you wont know where Ill go
Back in your face with a cold but steady flow
You feel the power of the ice in the first row
You already know what to say, hooooooooo!!!
On the mic is a stone cold vet
Evil es on the set, hit the deck
{*evil e scratches for a long time*}
[ice-t]
Im in my mode, called the fourth episode
Or the last verse, if you wanna decode
So I gotta raise the heat, hype up the beat
Switch the mic from airtight to elite
Pounce upon the deck, it aint wet yet
Let me see how hot you can get
Then Ill turn up the amps, blow out the lights
Youre in darkness, then the mic ignites
Glowin like it did before, but even more
The room is lit, the raps are hardcore
Evil cuts the records like a psycho with a switchblade
You see a blur -- thats the crossfade
Loud and proud, words bombard the crowd
Look up in the air -- you see a mushroom cloud
I kick flavor to a musical track
Too fast to catch, too complex to match
Im gettin hyped as hype can get
Evil es on the set! hit the deck

I've Already Found a Place to Stay

I am the first.
Not a reproduction.
Not something had...
And tasted before.
You can compare.
But you will come back for more.
THAT is not my concern.
If you want to waste your time,
Trying to find something better?
I can only wish you the best of my regards.
And I wont think it odd at all...
If you find it difficult,
To remove me from your mind!
I've already found a place to stay!
And you know it.

You can change the names

You can change the names
of places and call them,
what you want.

My people who life there,
will still be living there
next year and for many years more.

You can change the personnel
that work for the city
and the inadequate delivery of services
and corruption,
will in time make you
pay a handsome bill.

You can change the names of streets,
and fashion them
to your heroes.

Never could you undo
the acts of those
whose names they originally bared
and everyone that uses them
will still know
what they were called before.

Without fixing the roads
people will remember
about the holes in Slovo street
and the dead robots in Mandela drive,
which will keep them alive

You can change the names of airports
for its better that way,
that the world knows
that they coming
to an new country
that’s has fallen years behind,
from where it was before.

You Can Have the Future

You Can Have the Future
by Alex Lewis

The present is malicious.
difficulty=delicious
We will to Hell be sent
If this is only the present.

What is the future if this is present?
Peace must have come and went.
Why should mankind advance?
He started on his last chance.

The present is so bad
That the years just add and Add.
In the future, what will become?
We cannot reverse what is done.
You can have the future.

You can have the future.
Take it far away.
It'll last a day.
Never let me see it again.
wHAT, wHERE, wHEN.
You can have the future.

Gypsy *

You can make out pretty good
When you're on your own
And you know just where you are
When you wanna roam
Got the moon above your head
And the road beneath your feet
Pull into a wooded glen
Make your own retreat
La da di di di di di
La da di di di di di
La da di di di di di daaa
La da di di di di di
La da di di di di di
La da di di di di di daaa
Gypsy!
Laying underneath the stars
Can be so much fun
Especially when you're feeling good
When you're with the one you love
Sway to sounds of two guitars
Around the campfire bright
Then mellow out like violins
In the morning light
La da di di di di di
La da di di di di di
La da di di di di di daaa
La da di id di di di
La da di di di di di daaa
Gypsy!
No matter where you wander
And no matter where you roam
Any place you hang your hat
You know that that is home, check it out first
Sway to sounds of two guitars
Around the campfire bright
Then mellow out like old violins
In the morning light
La da di di di di di
La da di di di di di
La da di di di di di daaa, hep
La da di di di di di
La da di di di di di
La da di di di di di daaa
Gypsy!
La da di di di di di
La da di di di di di
La da di di di di di daaaa, hep
La da di di di di di
La da di di di di di

I Learn And Study English

- Let’s start from the very beginning!
- Ok, I know, it’s a very good place to start.
- If you want to know how to read
you have to learn the alphabet.
As far as we are not in a race
you can face 26 letters in one phrase.
The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog”.
Now we’ll have some dialogue.
You’ll see how new words appear,
I hope everything will be clear.
For example: to admire – admiration,
to inspire – inspiration. Now you, please!
And pray be at your ease!
- To desire – desiration.
- Oops! My voice whoops!
Well, when you study English
you have to distinguish:
one goose but many geese.
-What about a moose?
Are they meese?
- A lone mouse can transform into…
a whole set of mice,
but… it’s impossible for a single house
to become a whole block of hice.
- Ok, a house – houses.
Why not a mouse – mouses?
- A tooth but teeth, a foot but feet.
If I speak of a foot
and you show me your feet.
- And if I give you a boot
would a pair be called beet?
Can I say a root
and in plural form reet?
- Let’s make this question complete!
There are a lot of exceptions
in the language of British nations.
Anyway, the rules are the tools
for learning the language,
and together with the exceptions
it is something like a sandwich.
Let’s go on! - said my teacher with a yawn.
A lot of time has already gone,
I am not going to stay here until the dawn.
Do you like to read?
- Of course! The books are the source of information,
to learn the language formation.
- Ok, then you are a reader.
- If I like to write I am a writer, am I not?
- Oh, yes! Something I forgot.
Let’s take an easy word “ball”.
- Yes, I like to play football.
- Good! Now open the ball!
- What do you mean by that?
I am not a rat so that to cut the ball.
It’s not funny at all.
- You are kidding!
- Oh, no! I am not a kid!
I would like to know where the meaning of that “ball” lead.
- Ok, in that phrase “ball” has the meaning of a party,
but… a bit more arty.
- There are a lot of other English words I can’t understand.
Why do they call all men gentlemen?
Are they all gentle?
This word looks so fundamental.
If a man is rude can I say a rudeman?
I wouldn’t like to look like a clown
That’s why I ask you again:
Will the difference remain
If I say: shut up or shut down?
I would also like to know:
If we say a teacher taught
why can’t we say: a preacher praught?
If people from Poland are called “Poles”
Why aren’t people from Holland called “Holes”
- Ok, I think our time has gone
and the whole picture of English was not yet drawn.
But at the end of our lesson I would like say:
You were lying all day.
- Oh, no! That’s not true!
I lay on the sofa just several times.
You had better tell me:
With just what “lie” rhymes?


Larisa R (Odessa, Ukraine)

If you can get an out on one pitch, take it. Let the strikeouts come on the outstanding pitches. Winning is the big thing. If you throw a lot of pitches, before you know it, your arm is gone.

Give Me a Chance

Girl, give me a chance to steal your heart
‘Cause I can. I’m both book and street smart
I know all I need about you
Like how your favorite color’s orange and the next one’s blue
I see your beauty and know about your knowledge
With your intelligence you can get in a good college
Or with your beauty
You can be anything you want to be
So girl, give me a chance to steal your heart
‘Cause I can. I’m both book and street smart
If I had the chance, I’d love you right
But you haven’t given me the chance to hold you tight
Or tell you I love you when the time is right
Give me this chance to tell you good night
Or talk with you ‘Till the daylight
I’m trying to change who you like, I might be close, but not quite
But who knows who’ll you’ll end up with. Could even be a gnome
But hey it could also be the one who wrote you this poem…

Tonight for the first time (cavatina)

Tonight for the first time we will walk talking
in the moonlight,
will wander among the yellow creeper-rose
and out of sight
you and I will be very close in search
of the first sight
of the evening star, our magic sign,
it will be dark when I ask you to be mine.

I Search The Sky For The First Morning Light

I SEARCH THE SKY FOR THE FIRST MORNING LIGHT

I search the sky for the first morning light -
The wind sends Happiness through me
Walking slow after walking fast
I think of how many New Years’ I have lived in my life
And how almost all lost to memory?

I walk on in quiet
Life ‘s Happiness is great but its Sadness even greater-

It Rains For The First Day Of 2009

it rains for the first day of 2009
the firecrackers smoke all gone
the unnecessary papers
the trash that all of you left
are all wet and smeared

i do not wish to say
that this world is shedding tears

i know if these be tears from the skies
all these are but
tears of joy

you, my friend, who lies there still drunk
and sleepy, with dried saliva on your lips
curling on the floor like an abandoned child

yes, my friend, you can be positive about
all these

this year may still have so much patience
to give.

I wish for the first kiss

I long for that kiss
The one that cramps feet
And explode emotions
To the resounding lips
Whilst striving for perfection

I wish for that first kiss
To unfreeze my love
With such ease
And free my mind like a dove
As it floats high sky above

I wish for that kiss
That will unlock my heart
And access your soul
As in love, we find home
And put on a show

I wish for that kiss
The first one, before protocol ones
The one in the mist of indecisiveness
When mind ride waves
And eyes only draw pictures
I wish for the first kiss

For the first time not

For the first time
I was part of authorities
Being an ear at them
Debating about my sisters
Death maker

For the first time
We sit on the wooden
Chairs of the court

For the first time
We pleasure the environment
Of the law

But…
Not for the first time
I heard the price
Of a human being soul

Not for the first time
I saw a bartering system
Of a humans soul with cash

Not for the first time
The house of law
Is being paid for the
Murdering of a human being

Not for the first time
A murder is more innocent
Than a thief
“Strange isn’t it?

For The First Time

Written by: lenny kravitz
I want to fall in love again
For the first time
Makes me kind of wonder if youre still mine
I want to press your lips on mine
For the first time
Makes me kind of wonder if youre still mine
Love is something
You cant get in a five and dime
And love is the question of more time
And love is something
Thats really hard to find
Love makes a strong man
Get down on his knees in the crowd
Just lay your hand
On mine
Yeah, for the first time
Makes me kind of wonder if youre still mine
And I wonder if youll ever really be mine
