The buffalo is all gone, and an Indian can't catch enough jack rabbits to subsist himself and his family, and then, there aren't enough jack rabbits to catch. What are they to do?

(Now And Then There's) A Fool Such As I

(Now and then there's a fool such as I)
Pardon me, if Im sentimental
When we say goodbye
Don't be angry with me should I cry
When you're gone, yet Ill dream
A little dream as years go by
Now and then there's a fool such as I
Now and then there's a fool such as I am over you
You taught me how to love
And now you say that we are through
I'm a fool, but Ill love you dear
Until the day I die
Now and then there's a fool such as I
Now and then there's a fool such as I am over you
You taught me how to love
And now you say that we are through
I'm a fool, but Ill love you dear
Until the day I die
Now and then there's a fool such as I
Now and then there's a fool such as I
Now and then there's a fool such as I

And then there were none

There were ten
Waiting by the road
Ready for a journey
Of an entire lifetime

The ten crossed the lake,
But the tenth was too scared
He left the others to their fates
And departed with some joy.

And then there were nine
Walking by the road,
Engrossed in the journey
Of an entire lifetime

The nine walked over a bridge
But the ninth saw a beauty
Pursued her, leaving the rest
And sealed his own fate

And then there were eight
Walking by the road,
Engrossed in the journey
Of an entire lifetime.

As they walked by the gorge,
The eighth saw a tree
Laden with fruits. Hunger
Consumed his life away

And then there were seven
Walking by the road,
Engrossed in the journey
Of an entire lifetime.

As they walked by the mountain
Cold consumed their hearts.
The seventh saw a route
To escape from the way.

And then there were six
Walking by the road,
Engrossed in the journey
Of an entire lifetime.

The trail went on and on
Never showed a sign of ending
The sixth lost all hope
And left the party, disgruntled.

And then there were five
Walking by the road,
Engrossed in the journey
Of an entire lifetime.

As they walked by the desert
Their throats parched
The fifth simply
Lost the will to carry on.

And then there were four
Walking by the road,
Engrossed in the journey
Of an entire lifetime.

They walked by the river..
And the fourth saw
His family dead. Grief
Caused him to kill himself.

And then there were three
Walking by the road,
Engrossed in the journey
Of an entire lifetime.

They walked into the cave
And the third saw gold.
Left the journey and
Retired to a new world.

And then there were two
Walking by the road,
Engrossed in the journey
Of an entire lifetime.

They walked by the plain
Feet overcome with pain
They began to hate the other
And the second lay dead.

And then there was one
Walking by the road,
Engrossed in the journey
Of an entire lifetime.

He struggled to reach the box
His left hand stretched
But at the moment of glory
His wounds killed him.

And then there were none.
Walking by the road,
Consumed by the journey
Of an entire lifetime.

All These Poems I Have Written/ What Are They?

ALL THESE POEMS I HAVE WRITTEN/ WHAT ARE THEY?

All these poems I have written
What are they?
What do they give?
I wait in the darkness
And know the morning light will come
But will it ever come
For my poetry?

Who and What Are They Masquerading

I'm sure I'm not the only one,
Who sees what they've done...
Like this:

IF what they had in place,
Was so perfect and right...
Why is it they've compromised their lives,
By standing near an abyss...
To jeopardize themselves instead.
To follow like sheep,
With opened eyes.

Why did it take fresh leadership,
One they criticize and despise.
To say the one elected by popularity...
Has 'stars' embedded in his mind,
As a prize.

To win as everyone praises him.
No matter what the color is,
Of his arrogance and his grin!

And he misunderstands the severity,
Of their dilemma...
Any idiot can recognize.

AND,
If he is the IDIOT...
Who and what are they masquerading,
To portray in disguise?
Heartless and blinded zombies?
Gathering to worship failure...
And finding the depth of it,
Surprisingly deep!
And this they can't deny,
Run away from or try to hide!

What Are They Saying?

Listen to them.
Stop...
And really pay attention.
What are they saying?

'The same thing.'

Why are they arguing?

'They want to be heard.'

Then why aren't they listening?

'That would mean someone would win.'

Win what?

'The argument.'

Life Has Downs and Then There's Ups

Whatever that you do,
Do it to yourself and no one else.
If you are ever feeling despondant...
And there is no one to correspond this with,
Or discuss before you bust a gut...
Why share your feelings of being in a rut?
Give that up to discover...
Life has downs and then there's ups!
It's a doing on everyone that is executed.
Life has downs and then there's ups!

Why share your feelings of being in a rut?
Give that up to discover...
Life has downs and then there's ups!
It's a doing on everyone that is executed.
Life has downs and then there's ups!

All Day And All Of The Night

I'm not content to be with you in the daytime
Girl i want to be with you all of the time
The only time i feel alright is by your side
Girl i want to be with you all of the time
All day and all of the night
All day and all of the night
All day and all of the night

Oh yea, all day and nighttime yours, leave me never

And Then The Beauty Dies

And then the Beauty dies
And goes where no one knows
And all the life remains
Hidden as it was -

And then the Beauty dies
And all forever lost
Remembrance too surprised
To no longer still remain-

And then the Beauty dies
And pain and poignant love
Remain for those behind
The beauty in their mind. -

And then the Beauty dies
And then the Beauty dies.

The Cat of All Cats

My Cat is the cat of all cats
For she is like a beautiful Painting
She sleeps and awakes in the early morning
To demand her requests for the day.
My Cat is the cat of all cats
She is royal and dignified.
Poets and Writers have long been inspired
She is admired by all who encounter her
My Cat is the cat of all cats
And shall remain so, until the end of her nine lives.

It's Gone

IT’S GONE-

It’s gone-
So much of it is gone-
All the years
The life-
Who knows what it means?
So many people
So many great things
The best the very best
All gone-

And now in these few years left
How will I survive?
And how will I not remember?
And what will be of me
And of us
When I die?
Or before I die
If I am no longer human at all?
And what does it all mean?

God, what does it all mean?
Only You know
And where are You?
And who are we?
And what does it all mean?

Lenny / Man On The Side

After all the jacks are in their boxes
And the clowns have all gone to bed
You can hear happiness staggering on down the street
Footsteps dressed in red
And the wind whispers mary
A broom is drearily sweeping
Up the broken pieces of yesterdays life
Somewhere a queen is weeping
Somewhere a king has no wife
And the wind, it cries mary
The traffic lights, they turn, uh, blue tomorrow
And shine their emptiness down on my bed
The tiny island sags down stream
cause the life that lived is,
Is dead
And the wind screams mary
Uh-will the wind ever remember
The names it has blow in the past?
And with this crutch, its old age, and its wisdom
It whispers no, this will be the last
And the wind cries mary

A broom is drearily sweeping
Up the broken pieces of yesterdays life

And shine their emptiness down on my bed
The tiny island sags downstream
'Cause the life that lived is, is dead
And the wind screams Mary
Will the wind ever remember
The names it has blown in the past?
And with this crutch, its old age, and its wisdom
It whispers no, this will be the last

The Wind Cries Mary

After all the jacks are in their boxes
and the clowns have all gone to bed
You can hear happiness staggering on down the street
footprints dressed in red
and the wind wispers mary
A broom is drearily sweeping
up the broken pieces of yesterdays life
Somewhere a queen is weeping
Somewhere a king has no wife
And the wind wispers Mary
The traffic lights turn blue tomorrow
and shine their emptiness down, down on my bed
The tiny island sags downstream

The Sweetest Days

You and i, in this moment
Holding the night so close
Hanging on, still unbroken
While outside the thunder rolls
Listen now, you can hear our heartbeat
Warm against lifes bitter cold
These are the days
The sweetest days well know
There are times that scare me
Were rattle the house like a wind
Both of ours so unbending
We battle the fear within
All the while, life is rushing by us
Hold it now and dont let go
These are the days
The sweetest days well know
So well whisper a dream here in the darkness
Watching the stars till theyre gone
And then even the memories have all faded away
These days go on and on
Listen now, you can hear our heartbeat
Hold me now and dont let go
These are the days
Every day is the sweetest day well know
These are the days
The sweetest days well know

Laughter, The Best Medicine?

what's in a sound, thaT HAS NO WORD?
laughing in enjoyment, or at a spirit broken
laughter brings us closer, or for a fight will gird
laughter has a resonance, meaning many things unspoken

being me, i may laugh, i may cry
but i will only half the time laugh with most of you
the laughter that a good man, a good joke may buy
is the laughter that soars joyful in skies of blue

the laughter that needs a victim? maliscious and so wrong,
you're resonance is dissonance to this poets soul
in this errant, poetic whim, this sad and mournful song
i speak of sounds emanating from a hole

not a heart.

hope, Emily says, sings without words
like the morning majesty of a symphany of birds
nobody i would condone, laughs at birds, only
somehow, with them, but if they're hurt, like maybe you or me

have a poets heart, and share some hope
what may start with a smile
at hurt feelings, or a snit, or a mope
might become a laugh, in a little while

i've heard of many a hopeful smile

try one on
before the music is all gone
and you're left at break of dawn
alone

laughing...

This door... (to the one who listened)

Take the deepest breath before
you open this immortal door:

here, you will first receive
what you think you want the most:

if it’s to enhance your self-image,
that will be arranged;

if you want to tell others
what it’s all about; even bully them;
there’s a place for you;

if you want to come along to prove
that you knew it all already,
fine.. come in; and later, go…

if you want to prove your life
to have been ruined by others and
it never was your fault –
that can be arranged;

or if you want to be just a little wiser;
or life to be a little easier;
you’ll love it here;

but this is the house to bless you with
two unsuspected further wishes:

when you have tasted
what you thought you wanted
you are of course, free to leave;

but if that which you thought you wanted
turns to ashes in your mouth,
you may wish – and whoosh! it’s gone;

and then there comes the third wish…:
so deep in you that only now
you knew it to have been always there;

here you will find yourself
to be yourself;

so stand here on the pavement; pause;
these are not wood, but golden doors.

And then a sleeping giant woke in me

And then a sleeping giant woke in me
And time, it's power broke, was pushed aside
And I saw life's line, it's trail of hopeless promise,
It's bloody trail, stretched back a million years
And more. Of broken dreams and crushed ideals,
Of souls crying out for something ever new,
That once touched would not fade like tortured mist,
Or drift into the pain of banality
But flourish as a special sacred thing,
A god to worship, but not idolize,
Against the bitter loneliness of time.
And I saw this line in me, this mixing
Of elements and need, this restless urge,
This curse, the gnawing need to need to understand.
But knowing, the knowledge dwarfs all action
And spawns the fatal seeds of apathy.
For who can look on the gaping maw of time
And not flinch before it's harsh necessity?
Turn away in pain and anguish rather
Than face the brutal facts of life gone by.
Knowing only that which could, must succeed.
And in the ruthless search for eyes to see,
For hands to grip and hold, for nerves to feel,
For a brain to think and a mouth to speak,
Left a legion of weaker strains extinct.
And I knew this cruelty was in me
Bred by life which also bred the wonder.
Wonder at a giant who would not yield
Though it's hope stumbled, fell - the weight of years
So hard to bear - and harder still to ease!
It was renewed, each new born babe a hope
Who'd never lived and never died before

The Edge

I was blowing in the wind
And I can see the sun setting on the hill
Its almost gone and then hills are greener than Ive ever seen
And this feels too real to me
Just to know the change
Now dont let me leave this moment
Hold me in this place
Where everything is clearer than of all before
And everything makes sense
When you say
Stand on the edge
And dont be afraid to fall
Take a breath and tell me what you see
And you say
Stand on the edge
And dont be afraid to fall
Take a breathe and tell me what you see
As we sat down by the water
In my mind I felt a gentle breeze blew soft against my face
And we talked for hours
It didnt seem to matter what about
As long as I was there with you
Yeah and show me why
It is to believe in something greater than I cant understand
And show me why it is to believe
When you say
Stand on the edge
And dont be afraid to fall
Take a breath and tell me what you see
And you say
Stand on the edge of tomorrow
Dont close your eyes
Take a look around you
Tell me what you see
Tell me what you see
Tell me what you see
And you say stand on the edge
And dont be afraid to fall
Take a breath and tell me what you see
And you say
Stand on the edge and dont be afraid to fall
Take a breath and tell me what you see
Tell me what you see
Tell me what you see
When you say
Stand on the edge and dont be afraid to fall
Take a breath and tell me what you see
And you say stand on the edge of tomorrow
Dont close your eyes
Take a look around you, tell me what you see
Tell me what you see
