All Day Tomorrow

( a cast of characters in song )

Homeless Jo and Jane:

We've got all day tomorrow,
to wait by the New Jersey shore,
to beg for a nickel
'cause we're in a pickle.
No end to us being so poor.

They Fought For You, Have You Forgot
Shall I vote or not?
She died for you, have you forgot
Who fought for you so you can say
Shall I vote or not today?

Shall I vote or not?
She fought for you to have the choice

Half of Congress
Half of Congress stood and clapped;
The other half stayed seated.
Was that mentioned later on
When POTUS likely Tweeted?

Nights Out
Disco dreams and disco balls 
Big city,bright lights 
Pub crawls and bar fights. 
Mini frocks and hair dyes 
Made up faces 
Mascara filled eyes. 
Vodka martinis and champagne 
Bus trips and black cabs 
Standing in the rain. 
Nightclubs and deejays...Read More

I was staggered with an item
On the news last night
About illegal downloads
And breach of copyright
One proposal is to block offender’s broadband
Which I thought was alright

and tossed a bolt of fire down my throat;

just to keep at bay the...Read More
