His Story Replay
Columbus despised local folk
Like Trump, he fibbed as he spoke
But truth be told
He wanted their gold
And you know that man ended up broke...

The eyes of Columbus
Columbus of magic was fighting for inner logic who saw a flat world of ruler disaster that sat on a merry go round ride created by our gravity master....

Picking my own kind of slapstick

Every treaty they make 
makes to cheat me
dislocate me 
from my

and on the plains
it is so plain to see
that a treaty's not
diddly squat.

Six o`clock 
In the morning
Is the best time
To get up when it is summer
Stay on the terrace
Inhale the air
Before it gets hot
Make a coffee
Just being alive
Elderliness is to be grateful
For little things

Could you be so Shallow
To walk in the Shadow 
Of a dark after Shade 
Holding back what you were Made
Something like Columbus day
A new World found
Women Raped 
Never to Portray
What schools taught back in those Days
A Vision that was Made!

Sun in September
A breeze in the air.
A day without a care.
The sun shining bright, at night it's still light.

A walk in the park.
Children playing.
Crisp blue sky, green green grass.

Holding your lovers hand.
Birds singing from up above.
The sun in September.

Columbus, ignoring advice,
Went out searching for Indian spice.
     His signals got crossed
     And soon he was lost
Which for us, turned out better than nice.

So this holiday everyone hails
One who, at his intended goal, fails;
     But because of his goof
     We're indebted - as proof,
All the stores have Columbus Day sales!...

The magical night
What a magical night. 
I drowned in your caress. 
I'll always remember how cute you looked. 
In your silk mini dress. 

Pretty long legs. 
All lovely and tan. 
Looking so good. 
You could light up a baseball stand. 

When you walked. 
All the guys' heads did turn. 
For a moment with you. 
They would walk through fire. 
And get burned....

In 1492, we’re told,
Columbus sailed the seas.
He thought he’d get to India,
But had no guarantees.

We learned in school about his ships
And how from Spain he sailed.
He made it to our shores and so,
He only partly failed.

We’ve honored him for many years.
There’s no sign we’ll be stopping;
And so, to celebrate the day,
We’ll spend our free time shopping!

So now I got to deal with Corona.
The doctors say stay safe and be alone
But there still no way to guarantee. 
Keeping safe it won't get to me.
Covid or covert it feels like an attack.
Conspiracy theorists going crazy being whack.
governments trying to rule a nation 
just brought madness n devastation.
All it is,is just a virus
Just do what the doctors tell us.
Let's keep safe n go on our knees to pray 
All we can do is take it day by day....

The Wet Drive Home
I exit the dragon's mouth,
still puffing smoke
after all these 
purifying years;
round the corners
square as possible,
narrowly avoiding edges
where the earth
falls abruptly away
and the sea plummets
to terminal depth-
Sure, Columbus made it!
But in this new world
of terror, politically defined,
One must pause
(rethink the wet drive home)
wisely avoiding 
the siren call
of neon signs-
slippery, paste voices
of abundance
and firm footing....
