Four-Eyed Charmer

I wear a white buttoned shirt
And my friends call me four eyes
But I don't care, just slowly walk away
And give 'em my gang sign

Don't bother with my appearance
Cause I'm the king of the chess team
Most guys got brawns, when it comes to logic
I can win before you take a seat

And I'm a four-eyed charmer
But a real straight A lover
What girl wouldn't wanna fall all over me
Hold my bag on the boat when I'm sick at sea
I'll give this life a mighty heave
Confidence you wouldn't believe
Whet girl wouldn't wanna fall all over me
Give me oxygen when I forget to breathe

Some gits got British accents
To impress any American gal
I speak elvish and clenon
They got their mansion royale

Some guys eat snails a la mode
And only settle for the finest wine
I can foresee myself in Paris
Throwing tomatoes at the mimes

A true heart you'll discover
Under this four-eyed charmer
What girl wouldn't wanna fall all over me
Hold my bag on the boat when I'm sick at sea
And I'm taking a leap of faith
That could either destroy or save
What girl wouldn't wanna fall all over me
Give me oxygen when I forget to breathe

Now I finally got someone
A lovely gal to cheer me on
When I play videogames
All night to the crack of dawn

Now I finally got someone
Who loves to rub when
I get a burning lobster tan
On my mayonnaise skin

Now I finally got someone
Who thinks my wandering eye
Is actually kinds cute
At least now I'm not so shy

I am the geek with four eyes
A noble prince in disguise
With a girl who courageously fell for me
As the titanic sinks I'll be your Lenny
And I bet it all on a whim
Now I'm the one with everything
With a girl who courageously fell for me
Her smile augmented when I stood on one knee



NOTE: So I feel ridiculously silly now, but I already posted this one a long time ago... must have slipped my mind... oh well :/

Poker Face

Maybe it was for the best
That I lost the jackpot
That night 
When we were foolish
young
Dreams in our eyes
New stack of cards
On the felt table
And I bet it all
I threw it in
For a chance
To love you
Once again

You know

I always carry an extra Ace
In my deck of cards
A King of Jacks
Baby baby baby

Do you see my hand?
Diamond shaped lies
Crimson colored heartfelt eyes
Raven hued secrets
A set of 5 fingered
Alibi’s  

A Queen of Tricks
What
Is
Up my sleeve?

I’m done playing games
I’m throwing away my poker face

We’ve used the hand we’re dealt
The best way we knew how
Throwing a heartbeat on a dice

Just to lose it all

" Demon's Deep "

What a way to go we say~
What a way to play~
Hand dealt us from top the deck~
So we bet it all ... no care o'wreck~

Sailed in to an atoll's maze~
Sun a'hotter than many a day's~
High at noon was reefline seen~
Amid seaglitter & deepblue sheen~

Aback her tops'ls as she flew~
Taught her main & wild her screw~
Thusly did'st our schooner fly~
Toward hot breakers mile high~

A serpent's path then before us~
Which & when the answer thus~
Seen between hard crashin' waves~
Path to glory... or an end to days~

So she rode then toward that reef~
Silent as a burglar thief~
Sneakin' in to demon's lair~
In our minds no chance nor prayer~

Then from high at topmast seen~
A bolt bright hot & strangely green~
Down to her deck it struck a'flyin'~
Lightnin' bold & wind a'cryin'~

Split she was from stem to stern~
Not even chance to her wheel turn~
Then was all put hard to stop~
As sky black began to drop~

Sea succumbed to sky above~
As does soft will of one in love~
All was still & no sound heard~
'Cept that demon's evil word~

"Damn ye sailors damn ye all!"~
Thundered he from deep below~
"Down here now I drive ye deep!"
Off her decks we then did leap~
"Now your souls I'll forever keep!"

Strangest thing sudden happened us~
No sailor had thus foreseen it thus~
For then we sailed far high aloft~
Upon a ship of clouds so soft~

A warm wind blew & we all felt~
Another hand had us been dealt~
Again we'd play for all of time~
We'd sail forever this sea sublime~

hear me

So you may have caught a glimpse of me with your eyes but I can guarantee you have never really seen me, you might have even felt me once or twice with your hands but you have never truly touched me, you think you know the sound of my voice but you have never taken the time to listen to me, you might have certain feelings inside but I refuse to let myself believe that you love me, maybe you have learned a thing or two from me but some things in this life can't be taught, you may have gotten me a few things from time to time but now you know some people can't be bought, you may think you are solid but it seems transparency is your biggest  sickness, maybe you can read but I doubt your mind can begin to comprehend this, you try to act cool but deep down your whole world is shaking, when you lie to yourself every single time you leave your soul for the taking, you always say your fine but pain always recognizes pain, on me you try to place the blame but game always recognizes game. Try to run and hide but in the end there will be no place to go, whatever it is you fear the most avoidance will make it grow, you try to walk a higher path but always end up lost, you took a gamble and bet it all but now you know the cost, Change is sacrifice and the bigger the transformation the more you have to give, either give up now and die or make the conscious decision to live. To achieve your brightest tomorrow you must first command the present, you have to take a close look at your darker side and that is never pleasant. The flip side was never promised and the future may not come at all, and if you ever really want to know what you're made of you have to fall. Identity of self can't be known when life is going good, taking the chances to expose yourself is the only way to be understood. Go ahead and keep telling your lies because its yourself you are trying to convince, I know these things because I've lived it, and suffered ever since. So do what you will with these words of mine and I truely hope they may somehow teach you, just know I have been there too and this is why I hope I can somehow reach you!

fight day

after having cut off
everyone s/he loved or
having them made that decision
for him/her,
s/he was alone in 
training for months,
with a minimal diet
reducing
reducing
reducing,
with the workouts from twice a
day to a full time, 24/7,
mental & physical
pure dedication,
where all that mattered
was the
fight---
s/he visited the chiropractor,
s/he wore the suit to sweat beneath
the sweatpants,
in the sauna &
in the run,
with every hill becoming higher as
the trainers, the assistants, the
physicians agreed,
they must become steeper,
for s/he must push him/herself to the
furthest point of human exertion,
must lose every pound that s/he can
to cut him/herself up to the proper
weight class &
the vision became blurry in those last
hours,
with more people around him who have
suffered extreme loss in the ring,
who have bet it all for what others
who have never had an ounce of ambition in
their lives
might look upon them to say
they did it all for
absolutely nothing,
but s/he knows more &
after stripping down to the skivvies &
stepping on the scale,
what has been attained is a 
physical perfection,
a human body molded for
implementing destruction,
for bashing a thousand blasts of
energy 
into the face of the opponent,
all for the sake of the
fight, all for the sake of a goal
to be attained
by any means necessary---
and loved ones who might get a
few minutes on the phone with
her/him,
treat the fighter with
kiddy gloves,
because they understand more than
anyone who will be watching,
just what dedication really is &
they will forever be inspired by
this person that they have been
so lucky, so fortunate 
to know---
s/he rehydrates, s/he pounds the
health calories, s/he gets rest,
s/he spends time laughing with
those around her/him
who have dedicated their lives as
well to 
one amazing
focus---
counting down the minutes,
the seconds,
before
fight
day.

Gamblers All

Gamblers All by Rick Rucker Some gamble big, others small, I can assure you, we're gamblers all. Some bet it all on the roll of dice, Others asking out a Woman, nice. Bullfighters live on odds real slim, That they stab the Bull, 'fore it stabs him! Some drivers bet that a light, turning red, Still means that it's clear ahead. There is a growing faction, That believes that Humans just love "action." That it provides a narcotic thrill, Strong as any drink, or pill! So, when buying a chance to win a Rolls Royce, It's in your genes, you have no choice!

BAM

FLAGS BLOWING,CARS PASSING,MOLD GROWING,CATS PURRING,DUST FALLING,NOTHING IS 
EVER WHAT IT SEEMS.
LEAVES BLOWING,HORNS HONKING,F.E.D.S KNOCKING DOWN YOUR DOOR.
LAWYERS OVERRULED,EVERY PRISIONER SPORTING STATE BLUES.
PLAY TOO HANDS AND BET IT ALL SOONER OR LATER YOUR BLUFF THEY'LL CALL.
TWO OUTTA THREE AIN'T BAD BUT IT ONLY TAKES ONE TO MAKE YOU MAD.
I OBSERVE IN SILENCE TAKING IT ALL IN NOONE WILL WIN AT THE HAND OF SIN.
I PASS MY TIME WRITING RHYMES IRONICALLY PORTRAYING THE HANDS OF TIMES.
IETWEEN THE LINES YOU TAKE A BREATH CREDIT FOR LIFE TO AVOID DEATH.
NOTHINGS RIGHT WHEN YOU DO WRONGNEXT THING YOU KNOW ITS ALL GONE.
CHEST IS TIGHT IN THE NIGHT HIGH AS A KITE ON LIFE.
IN A SECOND IT WILL ALL CHANGE PROMISES MADE ARE SURE TO FADE.
WHATEVER WAS SAID WAS SAID TO DECIEVE TAKE HEAVE DONT BELIEVE RELAX AND GRIEVE.
GUNS WILL SHOOT BUT ONLY BLANKS AS I LOOK IN YOUR FACE I STATE MY CASE.

It' a gamble

In the game of desire
never to old to play the fool
risking one's heart
on someone who may never love you

some are always willing
just looking for the chance
to gamble on a sunrise
bet it all on romance

Winning love forever
maybe for eternity
when one plays the game of desire
there's never any guarantee

Confession

So I woke up 
started to smoke up

that's when I choked up
tears rolling down my face

I get tired of all the hate
the hatred

lost love
you cannot replace it

this world that is lost
I would fight to breathe at any cost

mental stasis 
human flaws like scribbled on pages

bet it all horse races
throw away the key to all the cages

after you unlock em
and set your mind free 

changes.            -TA

Dining Without

While ambling down the boulevard,
I spied a swanky canopy.
As member of the avant-garde,
The classy bistro suited me.

When greeted by the maitre'd,
I nonchalantly said, "Just one."
He smiled and nodded graciously.
My gourmand venture had begun.

As soon as seated, promptly pounced
A waiter dressed in gray and pink.
"My name is Jacques," the man announced
And asked what I prefer to drink.

I ordered an aperitif
And proffered menu then perused.
In panic mode, I thought, "Good grief!
It's all in French. I'm so confused!"

When Jacques returned, with easy air,
I asked what he would recommend.
When he'd advised the bill of fare,
My gaze did then the room attend.

A masterpiece of elegance,
So understated and refined.
No chandeliers nor opulence,
Artistic taste and chic combined.

Came appetizers, quite a few,
And tiny salads, each unique.
With wines and cheeses right on cue,
'Twas gourmet dining at its peak.

For entrees there were perfect meats
With succulence beyond compare.
Then followed some exotic sweets
And coffee quite extraordinaire.

While savoring a fine cigar,
I said their chef deserved to win,
For haute cuisine the best by far,
Another star from Michelin.

When mammoth check was given me,
I calmly said I could not pay.
"Though penniless, you must agree
You've gained a customer today."

Was booted roughly out the door
With expletives obscene and rude.
In gutter prone, a vow I swore
That for assault I'd have them sued.

I did, however, leave a tip
On seventh race next afternoon.
That Jacques should into savings dip
And bet it all on Silver Spoon.

PAY TO PLAY THE SHADOW GOVERNMENTS WAY

                              

Hillary is cooked Bills time not overlooked
Their crimes way overbooked
Democrats and Republicans alike
Caught on a barbed hook
Americans don't need another look
The Clinton Foundation indicted like crooks
We didn't hire any of them to cook the books

I'm sure they all shook when they took a look
Through all of their lies
They have worked up like spies
America so wise
You’re all guilty in her eyes
We are not willing to compromise
All along they were planning our demise
While the big bad wolf hides in disguise

Mueller playing both sides of the fence
If I was Obama
I would be looking for a good defense
He left so much corruption in his wake
Most Americans knew he was a fake
The collusion and election tampering
Heating up like a red hot injection

Looks like Trump is taking this country
In a whole new direction
America's complexion is clearing up 
Like he promised 
With plenty of protection
From these kinds of infections
Pedophilia from Washington to Hollywood
Running scared up to no good
Across the board, America is floored
Trump screaming it will not be ignored
He will cut through it like a mighty sword  
                                                                    
Oh Lord I pray each and every day
You clean up our government 
Who would act this way
So much has been left to decay
While all of it on display
Tried to do it the Bush's way
But they let our towers fall that day
Just like Bush Sr. before to start another war
To line their pockets even more
 
Uranium One has come undone
The evil that has been spun
The democratic party on the run
It would appear that many have much to fear
Because the end is very near
They have bet it all on their careers
It's clear that politics in Washington
Have been nothing but a big smear
Set to ignite and just disappear

Pay to play the shadow governments way
Should be dealt with in a very public display
Taking all of Satan's power away
From those who would betray
Americans by lying about why they want '
To round up our guns

Wake up America
They're not playing for fun
While they spun their awful run
This is to let them know crimes against America
That won't come undone
It's we the people that will have won
Shadow government is all done
