We're sitting ducks

Virginia Tech Massacre
April 16, 2007
32 people killed

Aim for the ducks
You're at the arcade
Pick up your gun
You’ve already paid

They’re easy to shoot
The ducks won’t run
They need to be killed
With your shotgun

You’ve shot so many
You can’t be beat
Thirty-two killed
Will be hard to defeat

But what about ducks
The gunman will chase
On their own campus
Danger they face

Those ducks at school
Unknown they're prey
Soon to be shot
On a warm sunny day

They’ll never be safe
They need to beware
When danger lurks
They can't prepare

We’re sitting ducks
All in a row
Shot by someone
We'll never know

Do you like your name

You’re stuck with your name
And it’s stuck on you
It you don’t like your name
Then what will you do

What is your name
Do you share it with many
Is it unique
Or ordinary

You may even share
A name with your dad
They call you junior
Now that's not bad

The third or the fourth
A boy can claim
Numbers to follow
His last name

They may be confused
About your name
A boy or a girl
Your name is the same

A common name
Your name will be found
On souvenirs
Just look around

When ladies get married
Their last name may change
It may sound better
It may sound strange

Naming yourself
Would be the best
A name you will like
More than the rest

Ladies please

Duke University
Lacrosse players
falsely accused of
raping a stripper
during a house party
March 2006; they were
acquitted in 2007

Ladies please
Don’t falsely accuse
Just so you get
Your name in the news

You led him on
It used to be said
You chose to stay
You could have fled

A college jock
A basketball star
Their reputation
You'll surely mar

The pendulum swung
They’re sympathetic
But look at you
You’re so pathetic

Millions were spent
On legal fees
You wanted that money
For shopping sprees

A shroud of suspicion
There’ll always be doubt
Were they acquitted
Because they had clout

Men I must warn you
Or you'll be screwed
Some of these ladies
Are really quite shrewd

Email etiquette

I get a lot of emails
Don’t send me anymore
I haven't time to read them
I mostly just ignore

Although you hardly know me
I'm on your email list
Bombarding me with emails
You feel you must persist

You forward all these emails
Assuming its okay
You won't ask how I'm feeling
When sending them each day

Some emails have instructions
To send to those I know
And if I don't cooperate
My luck will surely go

I now delete these email
No difference does it make
To follow their instructions
Because they are a fake

I welcome all the emails
From friends and family
But if I hardly know you
Then stop annoying me

Dog hair no big deal

Don’t let dog hair
Get you upset
It just indicates
That you have a pet

A family member
So try not to care
When those who visit
Are covered in hair

They'll sit on the sofa
And her favorite chair
The dog’s on the floor
Thinking this is unfair

Alone on the floor
She’ll wait and see
The hair on your guest
Annoyed they will be

They’re covered with hair
It’s stuck to their clothes
They’ll brush it off
Still most of it shows

She’s back on the sofa
That both of you share
You’re covered with hair
But don’t seem to care

The hair that you wear
You’ll say no big deal
This dog that sheds
Is simply ideal

Rock and buy baby

You’ll give up your baby
We’ll get her for free
Except of course
That minor fee

You’ll give up your baby
Immediately
She’ll go and live
With a good family

You’ll give up your baby
Because you’re unwed
You’re still so young
With a future ahead

You’ll give up your baby
You caused them shame
She’ll soon be adopted
You won’t know her name

You’ll give up your baby
Her daddy won’t care
Because this burden
He won’t even share

You’ll give up your baby
They call you a tramp
The innocent daddy's
At Boy Scout camp

You’ll give up your baby
That’s how it was done
The price you paid
For moments of fun

You’ll give up your baby
She’ll go far away
Perhaps you’ll be lucky
To find her one day

You’ll keep your baby
Times have changed
It no longer matters
If vows are exchanged

You’ll keep your baby
It’s not a disgrace
You won’t stay inside
And hide your face

You’ll keep your baby
And won't let her go
Because her real mother
She'll always know
