But from what I can see all around me today, that America is fading fast, if it's not already gone.

Thank God we're not like America: everyone wants to look like they're 20. In Europe we admire grown-up women. I think men revere older women.

Who’ll be Today My Valentine?

Oh, who’ll be today my valentine?
I wish ‘tis someone who always remains mine;
I wish not for fairies, mermaids from the brine;
I hope you give me a happy time with wine!

Kiss my lips as if glued onto them;
Hug me tight with brute a force;
Talk words of love unheard of;
Make me feel the ecstasy!

This is the day most youth await;
This is the day few elders hate;
This is the day you freely date;
This is the day you could find life’s mate!

So, buck up everyone; be fast;
Forget your silly mistakes of the past;
May be in life this is your very last;
Search for your valentine in this world so vast!

You Know That Well That I Do Not Edit My Poems

there is no aim for fame
there is only this gut, this push, this inspiration
to write a poem
every morning,
even at noontime when there is so much to do
a poem is an icebreaker
it is cold to my tongue like a refresher
or even at nighttime
when everyone is fast asleep dreaming
when i am sleepless over a word
that strikes in my mind
like a bowling pin
i write put on words like a hat
and hold it there
like a staff for now i am an old man
with no one to talk to
no where to go
no one to sleep with as i think about the memories of my youth
summers and
rainy days
barefoot on the river
socks in my hands
crazy on a covenant
as death begins to whisper
the last word
for the last poem.

Do Not Give Poetry A Bad Name

The frogs should not have croaked a lot
when everyone is fast asleep
Aristophanes after all is right
These frogs should not live like the Clouds.
On the other hand
THe Philosophers should cling to being
Philosophers
Stay with the embrace of Reason and Not
Embrace the Strong Arms of Emotions
For Emotions belong to nothing but the
Realm of Poetry
aH! Lysistrata shall now wage her own
War against the Men
Claiming as she does
Her sole right to Eroticism

Honestly, i still love to hear the frogs croaking
In the Pond
I for the meantime loves to Keep
The Philosophers dwell in their Own
Cloud Point of view.

If Lysistrata obliges
One night with Her would be enough

After which, I shall work hard to
Give Poetry its Own Right Name.

I Like It This Time

when the world is so silent
because everyone is fast asleep.
when the night is dark
when all the lights on the street
are turned off
when no one walks his way
back home
because everyone is finally
at home
i like it this time when the wind
stops when the leaves find
no disturbance
when the paths and roads are
finally vacant from feet and cars
and buses
when every car is parked in the garage
when the child sleeps
in her mothers arms sucking her nipple
when the father is beside mother's
body
when sisters hug each other in bed
i like it this time
when the world finally is rested
for i am now awakened from
my sleep
i like it this time when i begin
to write
when what i hear is this
computer machine is buzzing
fanning (sighing)
like my long trip
in the plane.

Oh America

We all stand a chance
You’ll love it at a glance
Everyone
From everywhere
No matter what your race
What you look on the face
You can get the same
As the ones with fame

I dream of a land
Where everyone is free
I dream of a land
Where everyone is happy
I dream of a land
Where is everyone is rich
I dream of a land
Where everyone is pretty


Oh America
You make my dreams come true
Oh America
You make my life complete

Fast Food Hell

Everyday I am forced to sell,
Fast food in this fast food hell,
Greasy burgers with ingredients unknown,
I’m behind the grimy counter, all alone.
Little kids with whiny voices,
Line up for the kid meal choices,
Soccer moms with mini vans,
Men with ‘blackberries, “Look no hands! ”
Everyone from everywhere,
They all come to jeer and stare,
At I, the unfortunate employee,
Trapped in burger hell, and never free.

Goodbye Middle America

The death of middle america is coming
What use to be the back bone of this country
Is disappearing fast
What the goverment said would save the country
Is killing the middle class
People going hungry in the country that feeds the world
What about our own who have gave all their lives
Who will come to their rescue
When life has gone astway
Wake up America
You fight for rights of others
Fight for your brothers and sisters
Wake up the goverment to their fate
Before it's to late
When poverty comes to your front gate

America

wonderful land that makes
us one

fantastic place where
everyone chases
glorious as it is, a home
where everybody belongs

you have been the pot
of the potter hat
a dream that every race
has raised

alluring to the autumn spring,
where winter awaits the
crystal clear of summer

a beauty that my heart gives
the start of my journey's part
amusing, my soul rejoices
the scenery that offers me fall

let my life make the same
a moment where i remain
stand still,
dear America you await
me, till i meet

freedom that you give
life as we live, thing has
to believe, nation has to
live

cherish America

My America

My America, was such a great place
We had lofty ideals, and saving grace
Everyone lived, within their means
This was America, in my teens

Gas was cheap, and so were bills
And always a little bit, for some frills
Corporations weren't, quite so greedy
Very few people, were really needy

This was America, before her fall
What caused the fall, I can't recall
Was it politicians, that caused all this?
Or imported oil, that ruined our bliss?

Now very few people, really live well
Only the elite, from what I can tell
My America, Where did you go?
The one that's left, I barely know

Our Beautiful America

America my beloved country is falling apart
It's the air I breathe, in her lies my heart
People fighting in the streets, gangs killing everywhere
Are we to lose our freedom, for our children will it still be there

Are all our values gone, they want to take God out of our land
We can't let this happen, everyone needs to take a stand
Just a few can't do this, we all need to stand up for her
We must stand together we can' t allow for her destruction to occur

America's cries can be heard far and loud
Pray for God to heal our land, listen not to a booing crowd
Listen not to the evil, love your neighbor and lend a hand
Let not our country, sink away like in a quick sand

America- America, How I Love You So

America, America,
How I love you so,
We are richly blessed from up above,
Where all good blessings flow.

What other land upon this earth,
Like ours could ever be,
We are duty bound and ready to fight,
From sea to shining sea.

She has conquered lands around the world,
In great and numerous wars,
Let freedom ring for everyone,
From shore to gleaming shore.

Her gallant men strong and true,
Bear arms to keep her safe,
Old glory flies in distant lands,
None can take her place.

Her brave young men in foreign lands,
Go forth that freedom may flow,
That this great land may forever stand,
America, America, how I love you so.

Franklin Spriggs

Dedicated to our Veterans, (active and inactive)

Little Slice of America

To be american, What does that really mean? I sit here in a Mcdonalds with the smell of sewage burning my nostrils making me nauseated as the stentch mixes with the smell of greasy burgers. I watch as a homeless man begs everyone who walks in, for change. I give him what I can spare. I watch as my fellow americans stuff their faces with processed fast food, all with tired faces. And on the T.V. there is talk about a revolutionary war rising in Syria. We sit here in the little busy Mcdonalds eating fat and sugar shaped in the form of what is passed as food while watching a war, people dead on the streets of a less fortunate country. We are exactly what other countries think of us even though we swear we are not. and I admit I am part of it... We are americans.

Crossroads of America

Crossroads of this brave New World:
tiring - perhaps no longer young
Big city, rural city? central point -
refreshing - this nation's innovative belly

city of indigenous America, cosmopolitan
reflective - luminescent in waning light
hopeful in the new day dawning bright
still movement, raucous plains of crop

Gridded out on one mile square
soldiers and sailors commemorate
midpoint triumph at Monument Circle
no governor on this spot will reside

interstates intersect downtown - out of town;
glass-domed rotunda docile suspensions
champions cheer in the hall of White River
fast paced spin abouts at the Motor Speedway

To the eye of tourist local or overseas
- dimming star spangled glory revived
midway between coast to coast she lay
Who is there? Indianapolis, city fair.

I'll Be Taking America

I'll be taking America from the inside
And giving her of my complete love
Where clouds from the high sky glide
And drift with my heart songs above
I'll be sowing my love at her freedom’s feet
To find out if she likes me or not
And if she will come on to me and read
In what in words and music I've got

I'll be taking my America on to my home
With every soul that wants to conquer me
To bring me to their alter and dome
To set every word and my tones free
For my existences is for everyone's love
In a dream that never shall settle low
Fore I'll rise like the highest cloud above
In tomorrow's summer for the new glow

I will be taking my songs to her mountain
And filling my words with her hope
Reaching rivers of truth deepest fountain
By holding on to every liberties robe
I shall never be disputed to the deep
Of the anguish that has lost all fate
For America are my songs and words to keep
In each my thought and ongoing debate

Kids In America (The Matanza Mix)

Looking out a dirty old window
Down below the cars in the
City go rushing by
I sit here alone
And I wonder why
Friday night and everyone's moving
I can fell the heat
But it's shooting
Heading down
I search for the beat in this dirty town
Down town the young ones are going
Down town the young ones are growing
Chorus :
We're the kids in America (x 2)
Everybody live for the music-go-round
Bright lights the music gets faster
Look boy, don't check on your watch
Not another glance
I'm not leaving now, honey not a chance
Hot-shot, give me no problems
Much later baby you'll be saying never mind
You know life is cruel, life is never kind
Kind hearts don't make a new story
Kind hearts don't grab any glory
Chorus
Come closer, honey that's better
Got to get a brand new experience
Feeling right
Oh don't try to stop baby
Hold me tight
Outside a new day is dawning
Outside Sububia's sprawling everywhere
I don't want to go baby
New York to East California
There's a new wave coming I warn you
Chorus
We're the kids
We're the kids
We're the kids in America

America Town

I know I should be happy in your land
It's not all that wild to me
Not that I want to be any other where
I know its hell out there

Here in the borders of America Town
All of the dollies are spinning round and round
Hail to the chief
Lets just drag them all down
There's got to be a hero somewhere

Used to get annoyed at the fire and the flag
Now it just seems old to me
(Everyone is old to me)

And I know we'd kick your ass
But first I'll take a nap tonight
And know someone's looking out for me

Here in the borders of America Town
All of the dollies are spinning round and round
Hail to the chief
Lets just drag them all down
There's got to be a hero somewhere

I tried it
I've seen it
I bought it all

Not that I'm upset
I can still make my bet on the basketball game
And I got my spare change
I'm even O.K. with the hoodlums on the hill
They're in my will
Like her and you
Whom and who
In America Town
We all spin around
In America Town
I'm really not down:
We all spin around
In America Town
America Town
America Town

Notes From America

(desmond child/ robbie seidman)
Producer for bonnie: desmond child
Somewhere in america
The tour bus roars through the dead of night
The sleeping towns fade out of sight
You know what I mean
Here it comes and goes so fast
Lookin out this window
I just see black
Sometimes I wish that I was back
And this was all a dream
I been up and down
I been lost and found
In america, in america
I been turned around
Till I dont know where Im bound
In america, in america
And I miss you now
Just a note from america...
Livin on the road again
Im the only woman
In this rock and roll band
Fifty states of one night stands
You know what I mean
Railroad crossing, midnight train
Just the lonely sound
Of the clickety-clack
Still I know I cant turn back
American dream....
I been up and down
I been lost and found
In america, in america
I been turned around
Till I dont know where Im bound
In america, in america
And I miss you now
Just a note from america...
Sometimes when it gets to me
I dream that you are next to me
I can feel you near (whisperin my name)
I can feel your touch (take away my pain)
I can hear you say
I just want to love you again
Baby, baby....

Why Hate America

.There are so any reason to hate America.
I cannot count them all.
You can hate America because.
There is no King or Queen to bow down too.

You can hate America because.
You can travel from sea to shining sea freely
while traveling you can watch the amber waves
of grain.
As they slow dance and sway to music of God's
gentle breath as it passes over them.

You can hate America because.
There is no guard standing at the gates of
freedom to keep you out.

You can hate America because.
There one man rights to stand alone is just
as great as one man rights to stand with many.

You can hate America because.
No matter what you believe in or faith.
There rights are creatived and handed down
by God, and not governments.

You can hate America because.
America does not close it mind to shut out
freedom of thoughts.

You can hate America because.
Opportunity stands outside everyone door
and knock.
All they have to do is open up and it will walk in.

The list could go on and on.
But I choose to let it end here.

America you are the sweetest thing to me.
It is because of you.
That they have the right to hate you.
Without the fear of repression.
