I want to wrap your heart around my little finger
give you more than you ever thought possible
make you cry "uncle" from too much love
leave you feeling like you can never get enough

I want to make you breakfast while the world is asleep
have coffee with you and watch the sun break the clouds
go back to bed and pick up where we left off
make you cry "uncle" from too much love

Tapped Out At Four - Rev 2

Stanzas  One, Two, Three And Growing

There was “She Played the Harp”(1), when I truly was young,
“Ode to Verde Lee Allen”(2), a stop on a rung,
Loving women has always been easy for me,
For their beauty’s not found just in eye of beholder
Even boys with weak eyes don’t need glasses to see
Their humility shining each day they get older.

Where humility’s lacking man struggles with fate,
Overconfidence means that you don’t acclimate
It’s not really a question of “born smarts” or “brawn,”
More that Nature’s corrections are seen as God’s feedback,
That your life is still open, you haven’t withdrawn,
And in love you find warmth that sustains you through setback.

And it’s not just in loving a woman you grow,
Sometimes love’s greatest gift might be letting her go!
Is there dream that she has you can’t see as a goal
Or a burden relationship puts on your nature?
Is it selfishness that you respect your own soul,
Or that you can find value in her new adventure?

Going Beyond Four

Many men find that failure creeps past each new door,
For maturity slows pretty close to age four.
A man’s passion to be right, to win, may not serve!
Must your bad dreams cry “Uncle” or end with a whimper?
Does your stiff upper lip suggest you might lack nerve?
Do you go for a smile or just settle for simper?

Are you faking success when you could have been real,
Maybe better to stay with how you really feel?
Is it possible you’ve become tool of your press,
Being right is a stress that can make a man weaker,
It’s a terrible burden, the need to impress!
And the “KISS”(3) principle might help you be a seeker.

Poet's Notes:
(1) "She Played the Harp" and
(2) "Ode to Verde Lee Allen" are fun poems in this collection honoring two of my grade school love interests.  :-)
(3) The “KISS Principle” suggests that the wise “keep it simple!”

Kid Personal Crusade

I'm a nine-year-old ball of mad,
don't like this thing I see
Got me bouncing off the walls,
mama wanna know what's wrong with me
So I tell her,
but only so much
Don't want mama burning a trail,
ending up in jail
Anyhow, I don't need no parental aid,
I'm the neighborhood kid
who first wore the justice cape
From my x-ray eyes they can't escape,
when they're doing something wrong
I'm gonna catch them,
and make them cry uncle
Right now, it's summertime,
which means a lot of long lines ...
and outside there's no shade
As I see the object of my ire,
what stokes my personal crusade
For two bucks, bad Kenny
is selling one dollar lemonade
I hate seeing greedy people getting paid,
I got a mind to overturn his crook stand haterade
Even though I'm just a kid,
that's my personal crusade ... at least for today
