Traffic Jam

The cars are stopped
In one long row
A traffic jam
They cannot go

Just one person
In every car
They sit and wait
They can’t go far

The carpool lane
They cannot take
With just themselves
They can’t partake

The cost of gas
Cannot be split
Cause in their car
They only sit

No restroom stops
No place to eat
Because they're stuck
In  their car seat

So in my car
With room to spare
I'll sit and wait
When I can share

Seven Wonders of Oregon Trip (August 2016)

Oregon's 7 Wonders
While on a Mayflower tour
Sights I had never seen
Places I got to explore

Mt. Hood was truly amazing
The train ride was lots of fun
Plus I had time to shop
When the ride was done

On a boat ride in Hells Canyon
A dam we got to see
And the Geiser Grand Hotel
Really did relive history

The painted hills were lovely
Smith Rock I liked a lot
If they changed the schedule
More time we would have got

Crater Lake was beautiful
The sand buggies were a thrill
Waterfalls and light houses
Truly fit the bill

A damn good time I had
Aboard a comfortable bus
I mad a few new friends
And the guide dog never Fussed

Too much baggage

Do you have baggage
Something your regret
A terrible thing
You’ll never forget

Heavy baggage
Or baggage that’s light
But when it’s carried
You don’t feel right

A secret you can’t tell
To a spouse or friend
Because your actions
You cannot defend

You’re weighted down
With this burden you carry
When you think about it
It’s kind of scary

If this baggage gets lost
Be glad that it’s gone
And happier you’ll be
Not to take it along

Entertainers

Frank Sinatra
A Philly guy
Whenever he sang
He made the girls cry

Elvis Presley
His hips would swing
No one had ever
Seen such a thing

The Beatles Invasion
No guns, just songs
Causing an uproar
Among the throngs

Michael Jackson
Did the moon walk
His personal life
Created much talk

Madonna came
Breaking the ice
It was okay for women
To be naughty and nice

Entertainers
We’ve come to adore
Many of whom
Are with us no more

Recycle

Recycle our clothes
Give to the poor
Recycle our cans
Return to the store

Recycle the food
The stores discard
Putting in dumpsters
In their backyard

Recycle our pets
In shelters they live
While you’re missing out
On the love they give

Recycle belongings
At your garage sale
If you keep prices low
You cannot fail

Pollution

We’re polluting the air
We’re polluting the seas
The ground where we walk
And even the trees

We use plastic bottles
To take a drink
When once we used
The kitchen sink

And all of these bottles
Will never decay
Buried in landfills
Quite far away

Paper or plastic
No more can we choose
It’s plastic bags
That can’t be reused

Those baby diapers
Just throw them away
Most don’t use cloth
Much money they’ll pay

Pills you’re not using
Don’t throw down the sink
Not good for the fish
Is this mixed drink

And global warming
Is here to stay
The icebergs are melting
Day after day

Yesterday, today and tomorrow - a tribute to Robin Williams

A tribute to Robin Williams who took his own life in August 2014

Yesterday a superstar
A funny man you played
You also starred in serious roles
Many talents you displayed

Was everyone unaware
Of depression you endured
The drinking and the drugs you took
Should not have been ignored

Another day you could not live
You were in so much pain
Deciding you must hang yourself
And now who is to blame

So many people were in shock
Surprised at what you’ve done
All that remains are memories
And all the hearts you’ve won
