Independence Day

Come let's celebrate the fourth of July
With baseball, hot dogs, and Mom's apple pie
We're sure to ignite
Fireworks at night
So head on over, we'll light up the sky

Asighd from Sighence

Ah, sighence, indeed quite a puzzly puzzle.
The hypothermical leaves you chilly with a muzzle.
Solvent? I think not,
Stirring up the pot,
Overflow of info, gear up you better guzzle.

                Once upon a time Man asked God Free Will

                For he thought that it would be such a thrill

                     God gave Man what he asked for

                       Then Man asked a little more:

                 Me, do as I please, Thee Lord, pay the bill!

 "Neither did I, my friend, M.M., however I wished to stress the fact that Man asks God to do everything for him but Man on the other hand is not willing to do as much for God. I know you are a very upright critic therefore your comment is a vote of confidence that I have succeeded without revering less our LORD! Thank you, Marugu Mo, for your visit and comment!! "

Limericks crochetes: All the trappings of the rough-neck cult

Limericks crochetés : All the trappings of the rough-neck cult

All the trappings of the rough-neck cult
Baby-faced blond Aryans exult
Under star-striped umbrella
State seal insignia
Some Dad yells « OUT », muscle-men catapult

Can SUN also set in the Wild West
Where the cash – the Man says – will come to rest
How many will share wealth
How many get free health
Deplete coffers for great job conquest ?

The tragic loss of a rising star
O ! Mark « Blond » face ! He’ll shine yet afar !
Blocked not by Destiny
But by peer fear envy :
Winsome mien sage’s ears passion galore !

Trilling Tray

                                                     Trilling Tray (Limerick)

                                  Parrots have men in the palm of their hands
                         Through the pirated palimpsest that is from man's land
                         There is no point getting into panic about the tall story
                                     Touch me if it is a wild and wacky story
                         But if it is worthwhile to the core, (then) hold my hands.

The Real News

FOX NEWS had many car chases
Without seeing any faces
CNN other news
they both give me the blues
the news ignoring the races

Lost Freedom

When did we lose our country free?
Our ancestors set rules in degree.
Now they tell us what’s good
Do what we say, understood.
Old George would cut more than a cherry tree

what does it take to be free now?
I asked god and he showed me how
he gave me a book
and told me to look
so only to him will i bow

First Fear of Freedom

             He cringes in fear, his legs wobble,  his young wings scared stiff;

                     below the nest yawns a dark, deathly chasm of  what if;

                                                   plunges into space,

                                            flaps, slows down the pace;

               ah, new-found  freedom of flight,  across, around the home cliff !

as i sit and blink
and think
sometime wink

to knowas  i go
be free to be what i won't be
you see
there's no measure

Beyond the pale Edward Lear

There was a man who wrote nonsense                                                                                                                           all the critics pictured with comments                                                                                                                                    All they could ever do was Lear                                                                                                                                                           for things falling out were queer                                                                                                                                    being pricked by their own conscience

DARK NIGHT AT FREEDOM BAY By the shore a spotlight searches the sea. Those treacherous rocks wouldn't let you be. You head toward the jagged knife. One inch more you’d lose your life. I say goodnight, turn out the light…I’m free. 6/30/2017 Limerick Form

Timely Resurrection

Situations of life on goodwill may abrade
each stroke and fall, bringing out a lower grade
a cracker Jack
to welcome back
carving out an attraction from the same trade.

Homely freedom search

From parents to all peers, a groomed tossing puck
so much care quite good with sour contents to suck
a growing cadet
but still a midget
chill and calm is the wind for this swimming duck.

Breaking The Ice

There's one thing missing in this guy's life A role in the hay with a somebody's wife Just for an hour Perhaps in the shower Nothing naughty, just to break the ice
