Toothbrush Revolution

Get a Japanese
hand made
toothbrush.
Most durable,
kind and soft
could never hurt.
Be careful, choose well
Because you can be deceived
By good copies
made by machines.
Machines that might feed
on nuclear energy
made by nuclear
reactors, those, truly,
we don't need!
Promise!
To use the hand made brush
with great respect and care.
Promise!
To fairly pay for every
dropp of sweat,
for every minute of hard work.
We need no elevators
nor escalators
We will prefer
the power save
at own home
than put at risk
the smallest living thing!
Please! Please! Please! !
Stop Tomari nuclear power plant
Stop to suffocate World and Japan
we have enough
with Fukushima's broken Nuclear Reactors
There is no need for other factors!
We are helpless with the air purification
We don't want masks to be a fashion
We don't want radioactive substance trace
to leave our grand grand kids as inheritance
We know nothing of polluted water
We cannot live with the guilt
of destroying the nature, our Mother! !
Give us a hand made brush for teeth
let all of us, you he she and me
Handle it as symbol to seek
our world for each of us to clean!
One dream, let it come true, let us be:
Hokkaido, Tomari, nuclear free:
is this only a good dream,
could it possible be
Of nightmares,
forever Free?

A Need For A New House....Or Home...

early morning
when the doors are still closed and the windows still tipsy
like the whole house

you fly away

the sun comes out with the clouds
early morning you fly away
away from it all

the clouds are floors and grasses
and you are a lonely bird among a flock of chairs

early morning you fly away
thinking about nothing

you fly away and you feel like a leaf inside
that gentle beast

it is a ride-awA Need For A New House....Or Home...ay
among the paradoxes of life
and its ironies

early morning there is this flight that takes you to a stop-over
of your life

no one knows that you are grieving
over a search for what you feel

the one you had which you lost
intentionally

among the flock of chairs landing early morning
on unstable floors

early morning you take a cab
you choose still

which house

Being Kind (Can Hurt Someone Sometimes)

Please dont worry now about the mornin
When its time well sip our wine and sleep
Woah, but Ive been known
To love more than one person
Woah, and Ive been shown
That bein kind can hurt someone sometimes
Listen to my words now look no further
What youve seen is what I mean no more
Woah, but Ive been known
To love more than one person
Woah, and Ive been shown
That bein kind can hurt someone sometimes
Dont dream of answers cause you know Ive none to give
They burn like cancers they just wont let you live
Ive been known
To love more than one person
And Ive been shown
That bein kind can hurt someone sometimes
Dont dream of answers cause you know Ive none to give
We move like dancers steppin on each other to live
And pouncin hard
Like animals in the yard
And theres no healin, lookin, feelin
Theres no denyin that bein kind can hurt
Someone sometimes
Oh, theres no denyin, woah lord theres no denyin
That bein kind can hurt someone sometimes

There Is More To Life Than Hard Work

I can't say my life's been a great life that I've been there and I've done that
But I worked in pipe laying crew for Michael Kelleher in Buninyong near Ballarat
And I worked in the late eighties for a firm called C.D.L.
Jack hammering in the heat of Summer when the days were hot as hell.

101 Collins Street Melbourne I remember that address
Not that I enjoyed the work there I remember none the less
Up each morning at five thirty then to work on tram I'd go
And left that building site each evening covered in dust head to toe.

Another four years as tree clearer up by powerlines clearing trees
Operating a cherry picker for such you don't need degrees
For a Travel tower company a growing concern managed by a greedy lot
They still owe me two weeks wages something I have not forgot.

Up working mornings at five thirty between work and travel a twelve hour day
Whilst my so called bosses made their millions I took home bare living pay
Now I take it nice and easy and I'm well off now as I was then
If your bosses make their millions for you there can't be a win

I worked as tree feller in Ireland far away and long ago
In the high woods by the mountains where the peaks wear hats of snow
Most Winter days were wet and chilly up to April not much sunshine
Only sound the cold wind soughing in the larch and spruce and pine.

'Hard work never did anybody harm' to coin that phrase it took a fool
Hard work your life's bound to shorten you can overwork a mule
Hard working Joe is dead at fifty, Pete on welfare living on
Pete five years older and quite healthy he's still here and Joe is gone.

Maybe I've drudged for a few years but I'm not proud of that at all
And if my life has got one highlight such as now I can't recall
And if one tell me how hard he work I tell him my watch is slow
And I'm late for an appointment 'see you later got to go'.

'Ned the basher' at his local like to sing his praises loud
And boast of the hard work he's done to an uninterested crowd,
He's proud to show his work callouses he must have an empty life
But he never once did mention how he often beats his wife

There is more to life than hard work, work to live but not to die
And if you labour hard poor fellow life you never can enjoy
If your boss is making millions and you take home bare living pay
Maybe you should have a re-think and perhaps give the job away.

This Kind of Devoted Discipline

Many do not understand,
This kind of devoted discipline.

Some don't understand the benefits of discipline,
Period.

And it is difficult for them,
To connect success with a drive that is focused.

Some people believe luck is involved,
That comes to assist achievement.

And not intention...or,
The sweat of hard work and sleepless nights.

In My Hard Work

the goddess of poetry
by reason of my hard work
as a poet
writing poems and more poems
did not give me wings
as reward
neither did she give me
laurel leaves as
incentives or a vacation to
China or cash not even a trophy
or plaque of appreciation
to time allotted
to emotions devoted

she is cruel to me
she gave me a pair of black eye-bags
swollen eyeballs
back pains, tormented mind
stuttering mouth

and a very nice sleep
on the other hand

with a bonus
i am now more focused
on what i really want
i am self-reliant.

Hard work

Work work and hard work and there is
Nothing that substitute hard work.

Dedication and determination
Are the primary concern.

Do you want to drink the ocean?
Do you want to crumble the mountain?

Go on go on and on on
Go on doing your duty doing and doing
That are worth doing.

Hard Work Never Killed Anyone Lies

good honest hard work
never killed anyone is a lie
no one in the historical

graveyard skeleton history
etched on exhausted bones of sixteen
hours work a day slavery

worked six days a week
in bound crucible lifestyles ghost gone
in eras civilization passed

will rise up in memory grave testimony
will roll over in the grave to moan at lid coffin
closed denying lie hard work never killed anyone

Hard Work

Doing back breaking work
Puts a new light on life
Makes you see
How to appreciate life

Getting hands dirty
And mucking in dirt
Makes you realize
That life is hard work

Dusting the cobwebs
And scrubbing the floors
Makes you just love
The hard work
You've just done

It's a labour of love
At a job well done

Now its time to sit back
And relax in the sun

You feel happy content
At all that you've done

So pat your own back
At a job well done

Hard Work,

hard work,
hard work is all beneficial,
hope for the best,
Keep your heart with no limits,
Since that life hast a good definition,
Since that hard work will bring a reward,
Hope and pray for the best,
That I never get tired,
You got to strive on and on,
Never fail in your coming up,
Since that Iam bold,
Since that I got work to do on earth,
There is a glory that is awaiting me,
That the good will win forever,
Get a promise that the Lord is the higher guide.

Hard work pays

Wow, how payful is hardworking
Trust me you will always gain something
But only if you work hard
You can look stupid in faces of people
But trust me looking stupid doesn't describe a person

Always be sure on what you are doing
Because you might end up doing nothing
If you know what you are doing
All embarrassment you had, will be washed way
Happy and glory will be all yours

Your sad face will be charming
Smile will be on your face
Even thought you are poor and skinny
You can still do it
And always remember that hard work pays

Hard Work

Hard work has no parallel
One has to try hard and excel
If nothing goes in favor or well
Try not to reveal it to others or tell

It may not remain for uncertain days
By the time you may sure find the ways
You may attain position to make the sway
See nothing is left out or given away

No doubt life cant be equal for all
One has to quickly adjust and respond to call
If something is missing or not available
It must be got with whatever situation favorable

You cant sit and think idle
Must think to come out from troubles
If that is done successfully
Life will be enjoyed fully

Life has to be lived
Its secret must be believed
You cant be choosey or relaxed
Anytime you will be shown the way or taxed

Live the way you like and spend
But make room for slight amend
Love the life and friends as well
There may be mot more fragrance to smell

When Efforts Recur, Success will Occur

Surely one day success will blossom
And spread divine fragrance in mind
By giving deep joy, it will soothe surely
Singing lullaby it will make you sleep

Peace of mind it will fetch affectionately
Happiness it will preserve and console
It will act as a cushion and supply bliss
Giving enthusiasm will be its functioning

That healing success may get delayed
And may not come on your way easily
Only by sheer hard-work, it is attracted
Laziness will never make it come near

Non-stop try alone will melt its heart
Only then it will come in your grip
Sweats and toil are to it pleasing
It will respect a relentless pursuit

Overnight success is not a joy dear
It is pure luck which has no value
Only when efforts are mammoth
Success will make its kind entry

Many men dig a little and leave
Few more steps if were taken
Golden success lies glittering
Calling you to acquire it fully

Always positively make an idea
And try hard to realize that dream
By believing in in your great ability
Surge ahead scoring sure success.

I Want A Lover

At this time of night, when the crowds have passed
Were the last to leave, we need some company
No need to look so shy, dont even wonder why
You know the reason that we need this company
Ive been sitting here, looking out for you
Someone just like me, whos maybe had a drink or two
I dont want another drink or fight
I want a lover
I dont care whether its wrong or right
I want a lover tonight
Tonight
Outside the dawn is breaking, looks like its started raining
Well catch a cab, and soon be driving home
No need to look so shy, dont even wonder why
Youll know the reason just as soon as we get home
Youve been sitting there, wondering what to do
Ive been standing here, waiting to make the first move
Ahaha
I dont want another drink or fight
I want a lover
I dont care whether its wrong or right
I want a lover tonight (tonight)
I dont want another drink or fight
I want a lover
I dont care whether its wrong or right
I want a lover tonight
Tonight
This anticipation is a stimulation
No need for conversation as were driving home
Put your arms around me, it doesnt mean you love me
Just that you want me and you need my company
Driving through the night, its so exciting
Turning off the light without another thought tonight
Ahaha
I dont want another drink or fight
I want a lover
I dont care whether its wrong or right
I want a lover tonight (I want a lover tonight)
I dont want another drink or fight
I want a lover
I dont care whether its wrong or right
I want a lover tonight
Tonight
(I want you, I want your love) - I want a lover
(I want you, I want your love) - I want a lover
(I want you, I want your love) - I want a lover (I want your love tonight)
Oooh

Oh, mom please

I was so much attached to my mother
She was kind and no one can be like her
All mothers may be same as to be called
I miss her all the time when recalled

What to speak and what to miss
She will touch the hand and kiss
She will hold the body and embrace
I could see tears on her face

That she will feel enough of joy when we are near
Our safety was her concern and she had unknown fear
She would not tell it in open but disclose sometimes
I used to stare at her in disbelief and see wet eye with tears

I have seen her very closely and observed some good aspects
I have realized how mothers have been always commanding and had great respect
She would not let things pass easily until we told the truth
She would not forces on us for asking any proof

I may sit in her lap and find whole world
She was mild but aggressive and cold
She would blow wild in no time
And come down too any time

I would gaze her in eyes and it will comfort
Being child I had association and good rapport
She would move her fingers in my hair
I would feel gentle breeze from the air

Mom, tell me how you brought me in this world?
How were dad and you tied in not and got in fold?
She would smiling say nothing and hide the face
I would again stare at her face and wait for reply in case

Mom was happy all the time in our company
Our family comprised of not so many
We were few in numbers and enjoyed too much
But she was quite different as such

She would call all of us to sit before her
She will instill confidence and advise us not to bother
“So long she is therewe need not feel insecure
She would say often to make us very sure

I would touch her nerve to no more
I will try to know and explore
About our ancestors and grandmother
She would feel bitterness at reference of others

“I was not preferred only for marriage”
Your dad was black and I had to manage
Grandma was too reserve to accept the fact
She thought We had committed a sinful act

She did not bless us till the last
She remained with her views very steadfast
She was obsessed with creed, color and cast
She saw so much hatred in contrast

I thought for a while and left her alone
It devastated me as if hit by cyclone
Some of the silly things shatter our life
Mother had tolerated enough as wife

a sequel on charles bukowski's 'SO YOU WANT TO BE A WRITER?

he has his message clearly said: a writer is chosen
he does not have to move heaven and earth
to make a poem or write an essay
or finish a novel, for he is the

privileged soul
the chosen one
the prophet
the messiah
the secret prince
the hidden king
the divine incarnate
whatever
whoever

and words simply come to him like
a light from the sun
embracing him with so much inspiration
that he merely sits there by the throne of his porch
and simply listens to the dictated poem.

he says it is a burst inside your heart
an explosion inside your head
and you simply have to listen with your heart
and mind and soul
and there everything comes so easily
day by day and on and on and on
ad infinitum ad aeternum

there is no sweat
or hard work, there is no striving at all
to become the chosen one
for the inspiration

it comes even if uninvited
it perches on your chest like a bird and sings
it stays there until you die or it dies with you
there is no madness
or murderous intent or this lostness
they are not necessary

to be a writer one does not have to
stay for hours and write a piece and stare at the
screen of the computer and tire your eyes
with so much pressure

Is that so Charles? Did you not once believe
that Elvis Presley is nothing?
Did you not look for a job, or even try to find your lost self
for twenty years or so or even more?

There must be this irony.
And if that be so, I think i must believe you.

He does not bother at all, how can he be a poet?
Not you Charles, someone else.
