Best SKAT A Poems

+ Fav Poet



Nowhere near a force of nature
Challenging a source of nature

Building with the will to survive
A small measurement for those who strive

Lessons when it comes to strength
Multiplying the time found in length

Stop and learn the sound of weakness
Hard to find when one is relentless

Improving in a mental task
The answers are found when we ask

Stamina mania, you and I
To perform bravely in all we do

pump for long
yet never strong

Learn when ideas seem to fail
The wrong action is to bail

Thinking, thinking what could it be
Will not solve the problem between you and me

Practice is  the best energy
Memorize it-- stamina will come naturally

    Skat, your advice comes from the pen of experience! Perhaps I should not have read too much between the lines! // paul

    Gritty and randy. I like this as it tends towards the Chicago blues school of lyrics. Yet it is not raunchy. Okay! REgards, Gerard

    Hey a few beers will slow that engine down, or anti depressants work wonders delaying 'old faithful, or a couple of hydrcodone is best if you have a prescription laying around! Usually works for me:) Any man that wouldn't appreciate this poem from his mate is probably dead anyway or in need of a doctor!
