Feminist in the Garden

(Inspired by all the Adams, but with special mention to Frank, 
Dr. Ram, and Christopher)
 
For being a lazy head, see what you reap. . . 
I came from your ribcage while you were asleep!
I’m second but best,  and I’m looking fly,
so get with the program. Wise up, silly guy!

Don’t get all riled now that I’m not your type.
Have you seen a mirror? Talk about hype!
Go look in the stream then and see what I mean.
I’m needing a king because I am the queen!

You can’t lay down laws, for Eve is my name.
And as the First Lady, rule-breaking’s my game!
And neither to me does size matter a bit.
I’m after a man who has style and great wit!

Around here you won’t find a 7-11.
What did you think? That we’d gone to heaven?
Inside this here garden, with plenty to eat,
I’ll cook, but you catch it. . . And bring me a treat!

If being away from my voice is your wish,
then go to that stream there and catch me a fish.
I’ve already trained all the parrots to talk
to entertain me while you’re out on a walk!

Go be by yourself whenever you please.
I’m woman, and I’ve put the creatures at ease.
The mammals already have found me so grand,
I’ve got them all eating right out of my hand.

Because of my wisdom and my patient ways
I think we’ll be living here millions of days.
So don’t bother me and I won’t bother you.
And maybe we’ll even find “fun stuff” to do!

A doctor named  Ram in a garden nearby
is looking for someone who digs a smart guy.
He says that he needs the “intellect’s touch”
I might just go there if you hassle me much!

And off somewhere else I heard of another
named Adam too. Could he be your brother?
I might like to check him out, though his Eve
has told me he fancies himself with a Steve!

And don’t think I’ll leave for your telling me to.
There’s only so much you can get me to do.
That snake tried to give me an apple. The fool.
I rarely eat fruit, but a roast sure sounds cool!

So gird up your loins and catch us a lion.
Then I’ll don my leaf apron and begin fryin’.
And just you remember, in sex’s sweet war,
The one with nice “melons” is surest to score!


For Deborah Guzzi's Eve in Eden Contest
& for P.D.Slam contest (thanks Deb and P.D!)

Poetic Relationships Aplenty Plus

We all look the same sitting on the toilet
We all look the same sitting in traffic
Nevertheless is nevertheless does
Just because you are on a diet doesn't mean you can't look at the Menu
100% of anything is junk
I am impatient with stupidity
Counter intuitive is counter productive
No one can make u feel inferior without your consent
There are too many people in the world
Wisdom is the practical application of knowledge
Evolution through revolution negating convolution

Some are mine, some are not, 
but a cerebral cord, oh yes, they should rought
that full cranial awareness is still upward thinking, 
but cranial farts of the masses are snot. 
Get with the program get out of your head
and see life's counterparts not measured in dread.
Do something different, skip a life automatic
get off your ass u me and live life pragmatic. 
Forego social domestication that has shaped our existenance
and reach beyond to a place of resistance
be who you want to be what you are to be, 
and don't settle for less F, the powers at Be.

"Yes"

Yo-Yo Dieting



Supposedly the ideal woman's measurements Used to be 36-32-36 That's no longer reality which the fashion industry Is finally starting to acknowledge We're starting to see ads with a little heavier models Because a recent study showed That 63% of Americans are overweight I'm definitely within that majority Although I'm doing something about it Have been riding my exercise bike For 20 minutes every day for the past 2 years One of my meals, either lunch or dinner is a salad However as we age, the difficulty of losing weight Becomes much more difficult to achieve For a lot of us the famous yo-yo dieting comes into play Without strong perseverance one must be dedicated To the cause but it also must be a whole new life style change And must include a steady exercise routine It doesn't have to resemble an Olympic training program As long you're active in some manner or other And of course eating properly No one ever said dieting would be easy But the benefits far outweigh the effort So get with the program people... it's all up to you! © Jack Ellison 2015

Alive

Another winding road, another hardship.
"Builds character," they say;
Well, I must be one helluva character by now I guess.
Still I smile and laugh at myself for the little quirks i have.
Like enjoying how a sneeze feels;
Ahh, Im still alive
Living in this hive.
Being pushed and prodded to conformity;
"Get with the program," they say.
Well I've always Kinda gone against the grain
Teeth into the wind
And a sailors spiteful Arrgh! every now and then.
I love being Alive
Born to Survive
"But your my family, my blood," they say.
Right... You' ve had me bleeding for years,
And never once provided a band-aid.
If time heals all wounds ,
I'm going to live to a ripe old age.
And the Sign-post says I'm Alive.
Alive, Alive, Alive.

The Happiness Tree



Cloudy days are a real test They can drag our spirits down But I'm usually up for the challenge In my role as the village clown My goal is to bring a great big smile To a bunch of faces each day What better way to spend my energy Than to chase all the blues away If we could all get with the program What a happy place this could be Instead of a bunch of sour pusses We would climb the happiness tree Not saying I have all the answers We've got lots of problems on earth Hope we're headed in the right direction Let's celebrate the world's rebirth Cloudy days are a real test They can drag our spirits down But this guy won't let the blues inside You won't catch me wearing a frown © Jack Ellison 2014

Get With The Program

this program failed....let's move over here,
their conscience can't comprehend in their hearts what's revealed,
the hand of God or the hand of man,
too superstitious to understand,
God moves in, and from, and to,
He can use anything he wants to,
to show us His love in so many ways,
our hearts change constantly everyday,
to feel, to love, to learn...we see,
in love, we can see God in everything.

God Wise Investment

God Wise Investment

Each time I breath will take in whole world
And into a big tizzy I have been hurled
About what to me will matter the most
Of course Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

If together I can consume all Three
Much better life comes and will be
When I have accepted all of Them
Will be so healthy and remain trim.

Why off fat of land should I try to live?
When all of myself to God I must give
In Bible is an Old and a New Testament
Saying God will be a wise investment.

I have to get with the program and
start typing up my poems.

Who is on board

Did you say I can do it?
Not
Not in a million years
Well I am going to show you
who is in charge
Not for you only
But for million ones out there
Time to sit back and watch
with repentance 
I don't make things for no reason
Just like I don't do things without reason
Time to know The One who is above you
besides you and before you
I don't walk backward
And you shouldn't either
Time to move on
Get with the program 
It is on
One... two...

Get with the PROGRAM

Ever wonder what’s behind that positive drive
It’s the Lord’s program titled “Enriching Our Lives”
He never ceases to fulfill our expectations
And makes it quite clear that our existence has no limitations.

Before the Lord’s eyes we are all at celebrity status,
Therefore we must maintain dignity as our respiratory apparatus, 
At points in this program challenges will claw
And we will be tempted to withdraw,
But before we get zapped by that flaw
Please remember the Lord’s proclamation “Walk in my Law.”

Although the situation is easier to state than abate
Let’s congregate and place some ideas on a slate
Bearing in mind rejection equals projection
Please recognize that we have scored a place in the Lord’s collection.

a word from your sponsor (part 3)

stay tuned we'll be right back so don't touch that remote
a word from your sponsor is coming of which you should take note
God said to be of good courage and to have no fear
and that's a direct command that He wants us to adhere

everyone has a choir of critics, a bunch of nitpickers
never a word of encouragement, a bunch of bitter snickers
folks will always have their opinions be they bad or good
and if you're in a position of leadership to tell you they think they should
they're just like an old shoe's tongue always flapping when on the go
but a word from your sponsor is what you really need to know
your sponsor is your Savior, the Master Potter of Life
your sponsor is the Holy Lord, Jesus the Christ

three times Jehovah told Joshua to be courageous and to be strong
and don't worry about what the world has to say for I know where you belong
listen to My instructions for this is a direct command
just listen to your Sponsor and get with the program
it's not about your credentials, your experience nor your resume
it's not about any plaques or awards that you've received up to this day
a word from your Sponsor is all you ever need to hear
as what the world usually says is shrouded in discouragement and despair
when you think back over your life and all that you've survived 
you will see that it was the grace of God that kept you alive
strength is the inner connection to God that you've been given
and courage is the outward expression of how you should be living

courage is the thing that made a young David realize
that Golieth was just another target only bigger in size
courage is the thing that will stop fear in its tracks
and make you more focused when the enemy attacks
a word from your heavenly Sponsor goes beyond human understanding
so do whatever it is that the Lord God is commanding

a word from your Sonsor is playing on the spiritual channel
so don't touch that dial, the remote nor the cable TV panel
a word from your Spnsor will stand the test of time
the everlasting bread of life on which you should dine
to eat of the Daily Bread that God has in abundant supply
to meditate on the word of God on which you can rely
a word from your Sponsor is what you need to hear in life
the eternal word of God and the gospel of Jesus the Christ

The Happiness Tree

Cloudy days are a real test
They can drag our spirits down
But I'm usually up for the challenge
In my role as the village clown

My goal is to bring a great big smile
To a bunch of faces each day
What better way to spend my energy
Than to chase the blues away

If we could all get with the program
What a happy place this could be
Instead of bunches of sour pusses
We would climb the happiness tree

Not saying I have all the answers
We've got lots of problems on earth
Hope we're headed in the right direction
Let's celebrate the world's rebirth

Cloudy days are a real test
They can drag our spirits down
But this guy won't let the blues inside
You won't catch me wearing a frown

You know

You Know

Get on board or Get off 
I thought you were the best thing I ever had
Especially In 2006
You know
 But you were full of lies
Edible arraignments taste better than you ever did 
 I never knew something that can be frozen last longer than our relationship
I thought you were the best thing but simply things dissolve like sugar in hot water
Goodbye and hello to my new love interest
You Know

Opening and closing arguments, nothing to reiterate a relationship is demolish stop with all the accosting I don’t want you near or around me Please I need my space because you know I am  with her,  while you are still searching for love. I hope that surf board was long enough
You know
I know you  was not going to  ride for me you still talking old news from 2009 your miserable you need get with the program
