The key is, if you're not monkeying around with the script, then everything usually goes pretty well.

You Don't Mess Around With Jim

Uptown got it's hustlers
The bowery got it's bums
42nd street got big jim walker
He's a pool-shootin' son of a gun
Yeah, he big and dumb as a man can come
But he stronger than a country hoss
And when the bad folks all get together at night
You know they all call big jim "boss", just because
And they say
You don't tug on superman's cape
You don't spit into the wind
You don't pull the mask off that old lone ranger
And you don't mess around with jim
Well outta south alabama came a country boy
He say i'm lookin' for a man named jim
I am a pool-shootin' boy
My name willie mccoy
But down home they call me slim
Yeah i'm lookin' for the king of 42nd street
He drivin' a drop top cadillac
Last week he took all my money
And it may sound funny
But i come to get my money back
And everybody say jack don't you know
And you don't tug on superman's cape
You don't spit into the wind
You don't pull the mask off that old lone ranger
And you don't mess around with jim
Well a hush fell over the pool room
Jimmy come boppin' in off the street
And when the cuttin' were done
The only part that wasn't bloody
Was the soles of the big man's feet
Yeah he were cut in in bout a hundred places
And he were shot in a couple more
And you better believe
They sung a different kind of story
When big jim hit the floor now they say
You don't tug on superman's cape
You don't spit into the wind
You don't pull the mask off that old lone ranger
And you don't mess around with slim
Yeah, big jim got his hat
Find out where it's at
And it's not hustlin' people strange to you
Even if you do got a two-piece custom-made pool cue
Yeah you don't tug on superman's cape
You don't spit into the wind
You don't pull the mask off the old lone ranger
And you don't mess around with slim

It Has Been All About You

It has been all about you.
You can not go around,
With a disputing of that fact.

Every conversation I've ever had with you,
Originates with comparisons made to others...
And alluding to misunderstandings they have,
About something you've done...
And you can't acknowledge that.

It has been all about you.
You can not go around,
With a disputing of that fact.

Just the other day,
You claimed a wanting to get to know me.
Years ago that might have been my wish as well.
But there is nothing I could tell I'd wish to dwell.
And if you don't know me by now...
That validates my timer with you is nothing but wasted.

It has been all about you.
Everything you do has been all about you.
And now you wish to discuss 'me' as if there is an 'us'.
But I can not feel nor see that happening.

Make Your Move

You better not mess around with me
You know you better think twice
Because Ive been running on a really bad streak
And Im just looking for a fight
So you took me by surprise
Thought I was gonna run
But the cross fire is in my eyes
And my body holds the gun
Here I come
You better get ready to make your move
Got my finger on the trigger and Im gonna shoot
Get ready make your move
Got your name on my bullet and my aim is true
You better not mess around with me
I got you in my sights
Ive been running on a really bad streak
Gonna shoot you down tonight
My backs against the wall
You know that you better think twice
One of us is gonna fall
Im looking for a fight and the time is right
You better get ready to make your move
Got my finger on the trigger and Im gonna shoot
I say you better get ready
Make your move
Got your name on my bullet and my aim is true

The Only Thing You Do Not Get

Have I ever not,
Supported your confidence?
Have I ever not,
Wished you unlimited success?
Have I ever not,
Been by your side...
With a pride I did not hide.
And have I ever not cried,
When you denied yourself respect.
The only thing you do not get,
Is the message.

You are not the wind

One summer day

Walking on a sunlit street

I plucked a leaf from a tree.

“Why did you do that? ” she asked.

“Just playing”, I said.

“Don’t harm the trees”, she said.

“They have their own life”.

“But the wind yanks leaves all the time”,

I averred defensively.

She gave me a pensive look.

“But you are not the wind”,

She said.

Things Happen Even If You Do Not Manipulate The Edges

things happen
light burns
solids become soft after a time
you do not need to touch
anything

they have their own clocks
and alarms.

nature keeps its own
history, and makes things happen again
we cease
and so we do not notice the master plan
of the universe

those that survive
for whatever reason
understands.

they watch and how dry their mouths are
the amazement is gone.

On The Night That You Are Not On My Side

last night
the bed feels like a glass
without water
the blankets are like eyes
seeing a blank ceiling
the lampshade has a tongue
of light untalking
the floors are indifferent
the door is hinting
about what hate can do
to the windows that close
like fists

the heart grips for a hold
on its veins
tears want to see the
waterfalls
the mouth bites itself
the teeth gnashes
to a steady gum

simply because you are
not with my side.

If You're Not The One

If you're not the one then why does my soul feel glad today?
If you're not the one then why does my hand fit yours this way?
If you are not mine then why does your heart return my call
If you are not mine would I have the strength to stand at all

I never know what the future brings
But I know you are here with me now
We'll make it through
And I hope you are the one I share my life with

I don't want to run away but I can't take it

You Do Not Notice The Genius Of Other People

in your vanity
in the tallness of your price
like the tower of babel
you stand disunited
and scattered soon
you shall be like leaves
blown by the winds
of change

you do not notice the genius
of other people
you have looked so profusely
inside yourself
and you have not only become
one meaningless tower
but a cave digging more
confusions towards
the darkness of your
feet

try opening the eyes between
your eyes
try using the ears embedded
in your ten fingers

hear those who have no spoken
listen
see those who are like shadows
living
in the twilight of your life

perhaps you can find yourself
the paradox keeps upon itself the truth

your heart thrives somewhere
your hands have not been holding

If you're not the one

If you're not the one...Then why does your smile make my day?
If you're not the one...Then why is it so hard to keep away?
If you're not the one...Then why do i dream of you at night?
If you're not the one...Then why are you so precious in my sight?
If you're not the one...Then then why do i feel so?
If you're not the one...Then why is it so hard to let go?
If you're not the one...Then then why does our distance hurt me?
If you're not the one...Then why is that what my heart tells me?
If you're not the one...Then i don't know what to do....
If you're not the one...Then then why can i never imagine a life without you
If you're not the one...Then why do i cry without you
If you're not the one...Then then who?
you're the one.... i know its you!
If you're the one.... why is it so wrong to love you?

You Are Not the Loyal and Devoted Kind

Did you think I would chase?
And you were worthy of that adventure?
Or
Did you think I would wait?
For my telephone to ring...
Anticipating a call from you?
Pacing the floor,
Wondering our fate.
Did you believe the love I have...
Would not exist if not for you?
When I said I loved you...
I do and that was true.
I did not propose marriage,
To say I do's.
But I am glad you are confirming,
Your feelings for me.
I'm just someone you enjoy the act of sex.
But having a relationship...
Scares you half the death.
Don't worry,
I wont pressure you.
And when you hear me say,
I love you, again...
Remember
It's not to entrap...
I don't want a pet.
Or a monkey on my back.
I want someone near...
Who wishes to share and not fear.
And you have made it clear...
You are not the loyal and devoted kind!
And I am,
Persistent!
I don't give up something good,
So easy!
I have revamped my training methods.

You Do Not See The Wind....

when you are exhausted
to even write a letter
do not be afraid about
losing yourself
into an abyss of
perhaps having outlived
your usefulness

this is a normal occurrence
when you have given up what
does not rightfully belong to you

because you only live on
a borrowed house and what you
have is only the body
of the sea hermit

because you bring nothing here
and so when you finally leave
you ought to bring nothing too
with you

but what place are you going?
do you really know?
what do you have here?
do you really know?

when you are tired now
because there are no answers
bear in mind, always bear in mind,
that that is the only possible truth
of our earthly existence

deep in our hearts
we know of a country
and inside it
is a paradise

it is certain but we do not know when
it is true but we do not know why

just be patient
just be patient
just be patient

here comes the wind
and you do not see it....

Despair, i know you do not like the word

I know you do not like the word
Its color its scent, how we relate it to something black
And smoky and ghastly and ghostly
Some say, red is the color of despair
Others say it is like black coffee because
It does not make you sleep
And make you curl the whole day in
Your dark room without wanting
To talk to somebody and just be there
Alone by yourself, pondering, almost crazy

Not yet anyway, so you go on a compromise
Grey is the color of despair
Dusk, or dawn, or something dawning yet
Like an idea of a suicide unhatched
Delayed like an egg still undecided whether
To hatch or not to hatch and face the world
Of chickens

Despair, what is so big about despair
No big deal, it comes to you whether
You like it or not
As a matter of necessity, face it and state
Its name and stare and say, I muster this
Despair, I am its master and not its slave
And then, when you know all its particulars
You know what to do
Kill it and if it is not killed yet
Well

Well, well, just learn to live with it
Sleep and with, make love with it
And well,

Have kids with despair and call them
Their names: the usual, the normal and
The everyday. And just be prolific.

If You Are Not Feeling It

Do you have it in yourself to achieve?

Are you bothered by listening and discipline?
Does either one of them or both...
Make you cringe?
Especially when someone experienced,
Tells you over and over again...
Those are the two key elements to success.

And you regard criticisms, advice and suggestions...
As being offensive to your sensitivities?
Plus you rather socialize than to sacrifice your time,
To do anything that prioritizes...
What you claim to have love and interest to do.
And there is no loyalty or devotion applied?
Where is your passion?

Do 'I' think you have it in yourself to achieve?
That's the question you did ask me,
Right?
Well...
You have none of that of which I just mentioned.

Was that a trick question?
Or did you just want to see me laugh?
And why would you ask me,
A question like that in the first place?

If you are not feeling it...
What makes you believe that I can feel 'that',
Coming from you?
Stop seeking attention.
Stop seeking acceptance.
Start...
Believing in yourself and your abilities,
And you will never have to ask me...
Or anyone else,
A question like that again.
Now get out of my face.
You're wasting 'my' time.

The Almighty Does Not Sit In That Classroom of Tricks

When acts of evilness with intent are committed...
Do not revenge it.
It will hurt like pain never felt...
Or believed dealt with before!
Do not revenge it.
Even though it aches not to strike back.
Like some who believe,
They have been ordained to attack!
Forgive those involved!
That is the key!
And observe how God resolves your patience.
In ways you will witness in disbelief!
But hold onto your faith with a courage,
You should not chase or allow to leave.
No deed done goes ignored.
Believe!
What goes up...
Comes down eventually!
Believe!
And what goes around...
Has to come back.
And for millions observing,
The Earth is round and not flat!
Even thoughts that are tossed away...
Aren't lost to stay that way!
Understand what is said and to 'whom' you pray!
Believe!
When acts of evilness with intent are committed...
There is a higher power that knows just how to bestow
What is needed when the time is right!
Remember this...
Forgetting maybe something we are told,
And conditioned to believe we must do...
By those who chose to sell their souls,
To allow a brand of evilness to continue,
What it does to me and you.
As we weaken in droves!
But...
The Almighty does not sit,
In that classroom of tricks!

What You Do Not Understand Seems To Be The Most Beautiful....

i have a bad voice
so do not expect me to answer your call

what you will hear
will be the sounds of coarse sands
clashing with pebbles
not the slushy sand that
Matthew hints
on his tryst with Eliza
on the secret bank
of the lonely river

albeit
what i ask of you is just read my letters
(or have time
with my poems
concealed symbols lurk there
like an old church
scroll

you will meet an old man
who is cantankerous
who drinks Tanduay all day
and night
and then forgets everything
nasty
and sleeps)

i do not ask for more
because i cannot stay that long
here
or somewhere

the more i put my feet on something stable
the more aches i have
i become sore like my toes
and they scream like
hungry puppies

the chickens feed on dung
and dung becomes justified
as a need
somehow

do not find
or look for consistency
that is passe
have familiarity with one that
is so unrelated like a metaphor
but strikes deep
in the heart of the most logical
connection

for all you know
what you do not get
or understand
at least for the moment
seems to be the most beautiful item of your life

and then the misery comes
when you finally understand it
and it is
bland, it is numb

listen to me
please, read my lips,
that is what the old drunkard
said to
the triumphant
and
startling turtle.

To Do The Things That You Do Not Like

you set it aside
on the left and you take
back what you like to do
scribbling a poem or two
on the wide blank monitor
you type a syllable
and tells you a sweet sound
and inspired you write a word
that starts to sing a song
and more words that
sings to you a melody
about love and departure

some loves of course
remembered
those that ended happily
in bed and

marriage and sweet surrender
and living happily ever after

this is the fantasy of your fingers
and your salivating tongue
and your lips biting upon each
other: love, love and its memories
they keep asking about you
that you must speak them again

then pain, the twin sister of love
gets inside your system
your heart bleeds and blood drips
from your chest to your abdomen
staining the carpet of the floor

sad, how sad is this life when
one says she is leaving and will
not be coming back, that there is
and end to this film this fantasy?

now it is too much and you decide
to take back what you just set aside.
now, you swallow the real pill of
bitterness, mother says it is good
for your health. You take a folder
of a case, and then you start reading
their stories, their pains and hopes too.

now, you must do what you do not like doing.
i guess, let me tell you, it is time to be responsible.
not to think about yourself. how about them?

You're Not The Only One

(r palmer)
You're not the only one who feels so funky
You're not the only one that's out of work
You're not the only one that got a bum deal
You're not the only one on planet earth
Man you got it lucky more than most
You don't know when you're well off
You got no room to complain
Quit your moanin, we're all in the same boat
Your excuse is wearin' thin, you got no one else to blame
You're tellin' me
You're not the only one gettin' busted
You're not the only one with income tax
You're not the only one who fels corrupted
You're not the only one that can't relax
Count your blessings, not your income tax
You're not the only one whose paying uncle sam
Quit yoyr dumb complaining, take it back
I got news for you, pull up your socks
And get with the programme
You're not the only one with a disfunction
You're not the only one that's got the past
You're not the only one with no compunctions
You're not the only one that's strapped for cash
No room to survive
Man you got it lucky more than most
You don't know when you're well off
You got no room to complain
Quit your moanin, we're all in the same boat
Your excuse is wearin' thin, you got hell to pay
You're not the only one who feels so funky
You're not the only one, come on that's out of work
You're not the only one that got a bum deal
You're not the only one on planet earth

You're Not The Only One Feeling Sad Tonight

You're not the only one feeling sad tonight
There are others laying low
keeping out of sight
taking their last breaths
Hanging on to threads for dear life
Dealing with abusiveness
Cutting themselves up with a knife
Your're not the only one feeling sad tonight
someone else just turned off their light
someone somewhere is sobbing and crying
someone else is struggling or dying
someone somewhere just quit trying
Somwhere someone just OD'd in their bed
Someone else just dropped dead
You're not the only one feeling sad tonight
Somewhere someone just slammed a door
Gave up on love, just couldn't take it anymore
Somewhere someone just settled a score
Somewhere someone was punched to the floor
Somewhere someone rotted to the core
You're not the only one feeling sad tonight
Somewhere someone just lost a child
Someone somewhere lost it and went wild
Somewhere someone fought their last fight
Somewhere someone felt the empty cold of night
Somewhere someone ate their last meal
Somewhere someone found out evil is real
You're not the only one feeling sad tonight
Sometimes life is dark instead of bright
Sometimes it's lonlieness instead of being treated right
Sometimes it's time to run or to stand your ground and fight
Life is unfair to some and others celebrate with delight
But no matter how low you feel, whether wrong or right,
You're not the only one feeling sad tonight
It's just one round in a twelve round fight

You are not being with me

Because you are away from home
And I am staying at home
