A war on crime

We live in fear
It’s not a safe place
Therefore, I cannot
Show my face

A shopping mall
It used to be nice
Don’t go there
Take my advice

The anchor stores
No longer are there
But you’ll find a place
That braids your hair

Not far from home
A place where I’d walk
But not since the gangs
Have come to stalk

I feel so confined
In this part of town
Because of the places
I can’t be around

And stores nearby
I won’t go at night
With crime everywhere
There’s no end in sight

A mega million jackpot

A mega million jackpot
I bought a lotto ticket
I didn’t choose my numbers
I let the computer pick it

I only bought 3 tickets
I’m sure that I won’t win
But why not take a chance
So, with this game I’m in

How will I spend this money
I’ve given it some thought
A summer place I’ll buy
I will not buy a yacht

I’ll give some to my family
Though there aren’t many
And perhaps to friends
I hardly do have any

I know I’ll give to charity
But I’ll be very sure
The money’s really going
To the people who are poor

My home is very nice
I doubt that I will move
My yard needs lots of work
And that I will improve

Though money can’t buy health
And that I know for sure
It really helps a lot
It’s better than being poor

Look, don't touch

Beautiful girls
In bikinis they walk
Along the runway
While the men gawk

In front of millions
These girls have no shame
Displaying themselves
On the road to fame

Miss America
They’re hoping to be
And they don’t mind
Dressing scantily

Bikinis are worn
No longer one piece
Showing more skin
Their chances increase

A scholarship pageant
That’s what they say
While 50 ladies
Are on display

Look, don’t touch
And never harass
Cause you’ll be told
You’re a snake in the grass

18 Years Since Y2K

It’s been 18 years
Since Y2K
They predicted computers
Would not be okay

By only programming
Two-digit numbers
They couldn’t prevent
This soon to be blunder

While the century was ending
On New Year’s Eve
As we sang Auld Lang Syne
Soon to get a reprieve

The computers still worked
Nothing drastic had occurred
Our lives have continued
Though for no one undeterred

Frozen Embryos

Because there are thousands
Of frozen embryos
It's a dilemma
They have nowhere to go

With too many eggs
The woman produced
They were fertilized
But all weren't induced

Those not used
Must be frozen
And no one knows
If the best were chosen

If they get destroyed
These tiny embryos
Is it like an abortion
Does no one oppose

Some get adopted
In another it will grow
But the egg it came from
Will the child want to know

Joy to the world

Joy to the world
In church we sing
The Lord has come
And blessings he'll bring

I don't always believe
There's joy all around
When people are suffering
Even in our hometown

When we see on TV
All the women who proclaim
That they were harassed
Though some achieved fame

When we see on TV
That our own President
Has caused so many
To become discontent

When we see on TV
All those people were shot
With an illegal gun
The shooter had bought

Those hurricanes
Caused many to despair
And relentless fires
Destroyed without a care

There's joy to be had
Though you're filled with grief
It's yours when you're ready
All it takes is belief

Left right left

Lean to the left
Lean to the right
Stand up, sit down
Fight, fight, fight

A little chant
We used to say
At footballs games
When our team played

But now the left
Will march and fight
Against the right
Both day and night

That only whites
In the USA
It's what is said
By the KKK

They hate the Jews
It's what they say
And nasty chants
They hurl their way

They all should get
Completely white
Just few I'll bet
