Baksheesh

In for a penny, in for a pound
money makes the world go round.

“Baksheesh, pretty lady, Cleopatra eyes?”
foreign intrigue in a bantering guise.

“What do you want, My Queen?”
“Just for you, right here, behind the screen.”

One dollar, five pounds, the world goes round
in for a penny, in for a pound.

“Oh my beauty, please stay, please.
Come, come here, to my shop, stay for tea?”

“No hassle, so honest, nice things abound!”
Money, not love, makes the world go round.



*Baksheesh means a TIP in arabic.

You Don't Say

My nose is itchin', company's comin'.
Land sakes alive, as I live and breathe,
haven't seen you in a ****'s age.
Lookin' fat and sassy.

	We're fair to middlin', barely gittin' by.
	Livin' hand t'mouth, kids drivin' us up th'wall.
	Uncle Sam bleedin' us dry. How're y'all farin'?

I'm on the skids, man, boss on my case.
Tossed out on my ear. 

	Ye gads and little fishes.
	Ain't that the way, yah giv'em an  inch, 
	they'll take a mile. You'll wind up 
	with your tail draggin' your tracks out.

	Well, buck up, boy, every cloud has a silver lining.
	Rome wasn't built inna day.
	Don't give up before you start.
	Where there's a will, there's a way.
	Keep your chin up, time heals all wounds.
	Don't sweat it, man, it'll all come out in th' wash.
	In for a penny, in for a pound.
	Put on a happy face, fake it, till you make it.
	Stop monkeyin' around, actions speak louder than words.
	Go out there and knock 'em dead.
	It's every man for himself.
	Let the chips fall where they may.

Is it worth it

Dylan Thomas. Silvia Plath and Edgar Allen Poe     These are names      That we all know    Fought their demons     All their lifes     A pen in their hand     To give them advice     Does the pain go away     When the words are put down     In for a penny     In for a pound     Only their ghosts     Can shed the light     All the heartache     Was it worth the fight

There In Shimmering Rays Of Golden Light

There In Shimmering Rays Of Golden Light


There in shimmering rays of golden light
angel divided deep dark from dark night.
With flash of sword, eternal truth of God
light penetrated all stones, seas and sod.

Violet scented air was born anew
fairer winds swiftly swirled hope bold and true
Dawn burst, life teemed in peaceful quietude
man's birth, universe lost its solitude.

Nature's new dawns contrived so splendidly
man fought Nature, rose independently.
Ponders now, why he is cursed and sick
while he destroys earth's bounty hard and quick. 

Truth, in for a penny in for a pound.
Best find light, if wanting to stay around.

Rat on a wheel

I am sure by now a smart fella such as yourself 
Has figured it out by now
So tell me how does it feel?
To be just another rat spinning the wheel
Round and round in for a penny in for a pound
We want away our daily grind
Only to find the wheels only stops turning
When prescribed incapable of earning
