Highway 61 Revisited

Oh God said to abraham, kill me a son
Abe says, man, you must be putting me on
God say, no. abe say, what?
God say, you can do what you want abe, but
The next time you see me comin you better run
Well abe says, where do you want this killing done?
God says, out on highway 61.
Well georgia sam he had a bloody nose
Welfare department they wouldnt give him no clothes
He asked poor howard where can I go
Howard said theres only one place I know
Sam said tell me quick man I got to run
Ol howard just pointed with his gun
And said that way down on highway 61.
Well mack the finger said to louie the king
I got forty red white and blue shoe strings
And a thousand telephones that dont ring
Do you know where I can get rid of these things
And louie the king said let me think for a minute son
And he said yes I think it can be easily done

Langston Hughes

Lincoln Monument: Washington

Let's go see Old Abe
Sitting in the marble and the moonlight,
Sitting lonely in the marble and the moonlight,
Quiet for ten thousand centuries, old Abe.
Quiet for a million, million years.

Quiet-

And yet a voice forever
Against the
Timeless walls
Of time-
Old Abe.

Jim McKay

MUCH MORE THAN SPORTS
James Kenneth McManus
September 24,1921 – June 7,2008

We heard the, 'thrill of victory,
and the agony of defeat'
We all knew when he said it
That, we’d be in for a treat.

Through the, 'Wide World Of Sports'
He showed us places, never seen
From the North Pole to the South
And all of those, in between.

He spent years spanning the Globe
And brought us news and sports
And from the Olympics in Munich
He gave us all, those sad reports.

His passion was the sport of kings

POW/MIA Remembrance Day

POW/MIA Remembrance Day
(Third Friday of September)

Thousands are still missing
From those Wars of the past
Slowly, some are coming home
To grieving Families, at last.

Some found in unmarked graves
On foreign lands across the sea
With the science of DNA
To reveal, their true identity.

JPAC was formed to find them
Around fourteen hundred, to date
And for loved ones seeking closure
It surely, never is, too late.

They think, forty thousand left
They might be able to recover

D - Day

The Longest Day”
June 6,1944

On those shores of Normandy
Those sixty-five years ago
There was an amphibious landing
The largest, this World would know.

Many thousands stormed those beaches
Although many, never reached the land
Washed upon, foreign sands by waves
Where, all those Heroes took their stand.

Named, Omaha, Sword and Juno
Gold and Utah, where they died
It was our foothold there in Europe
Which would not, could not, be denied.

To liberate those Countries occupied
By that terrible, Nazi war machine

Our Constitution’s Birthday

Our Constitution’s Birthday
(September 17,2008)

In the year, Seventeen eighty-seven
Those thirty-nine, changed our History
They signed that piece of parchment
The Laws of, the Land of the Free.

In more than two hundred twenty years
It has gone through a few changes
That’s not, an easy thing to get done
For, all of our lives, it rearranges.

The First through Tenth Amendments
Are known as our Bill of Rights
And many times, they were in danger
But, the People, usually won those fights.

Sometimes, those people in power
Try to change them, for their gain

Northern Farmer: Old Style

Wheer 'asta beän saw long and meä liggin' 'ere aloän?

The Young New Mexican Puppeteer

In a town near albequerqe
Lived a most concerned young boy
He said lately I have noticed
Folks dont live with peace and joy
With frowns and worry on their faces
Theyre lost and dont know where to go
He said Ill get the people straightened
By putting on a puppet show
The young new mexican puppeteer
He saw the people all lived in fear
He thought that maybe theyd listen to
A puppet telling them what to do
You know he got some string and he got some wood
He did some carving and he was good
And folks came running so they could hear
The young new mexican puppeteer
First he carved out young abe lincoln
Abe will teach em civil rights
Then a king named martin luther
So theyd recall his peacefull fight
