An Erin Adventure

desmond, childhood, life, placesold, lost, tree, easter, history,
We spoke the history of Flankers under the roof
Of your old school

A lot of reasons Satan gives us. We say, "Don't worry, God forgives us!"

WITH JUST ONE LOOK SHE'S NORMA DESMOND
desmond, good morning, sea, sun,
just before sunrise
to exquisite sounds
of the morning refrain
offers his love
with his passionate tune
surely making her swoon
How could she resist
this morning opera
each wistful aria
expressing his love
Flying towards her
with hope in his heart
How to Get On in Society
desmond, family, food, me,
Phone for the fish knives, Norman
As cook is a little unnerved;
You kiddies have crumpled the serviettes
And I must have things daintily served.
Are the requisites all in the toilet?
The frills round the cutlets can...
Previews were many for a series called "Lost"
The cast was extensive, oh what a cost!
Production gave, to the viewers, a plight,
When Oceanic 815 began its fated flight
Something went wrong, the plane began to fall
Letter to a Girl Child
desmond, africa, child, confidence, courage, girl, women, youth,
Everything seems impossible when it’s not done
Though when dark times hit, people tend to give up and run
But to where, it’s still under the same sun

Ode to Dizzy
desmond, 11th grade, blessing, grandfather, hope, mentor, work,
Desmond loved his cards, his woman, his song - all three.
But life took a turn (for the better), as you'll see.

So when duty called, Dizzy...

An Observer Am I
desmond, life, people,
Here are some people I'd like you to meet,
Various characters who live down our street.

desmond, friendshipme, me,
Walk with me here, friend, once again
Along the dingy street cataloged with dingy lives
For our hopes were eagles here
And the little people preys of pride
How we circled them aloft in our sky
Of some marginal education
desmond, abuse, angst, betrayal, community,
Silence Is Encouragement
Desmond Tutu: "If you are neutral in a situation of injustice, then you have chosen the side of the oppressor".
A very appropriate quote to describe the significance of apathy....
When silence is not golden,...
Dizzy Took A Walk
He was born Desmond
back in the hollers
Pa did it all
For a few dollars
They called him Desi
But that one was took
Changed it to Dizzy
A lesser known hook
He grew quick and strong
And agile to boot
His Pa ran...

Saving Seventy-five Men

Doing it without firing
A gun brought a huge impact.

Of the medic Desmond Doss;
He had played the greatest role
To prevent the death or...
