Donut Schools

Powered or glazed
And those that twist
Covered with chocolate
Few can resist

Topped with nuts
Or cream in between
Policemen will eat
With cups of caffeine

Donut shops
Wherever you go
Create what you like
With their dough

Donut schools
For those who bake
Powered and iced
And all they make

Many to choose
Yet seen before
These donuts are
In every store

Country Bumpkins


I live where it is pretty
It’s far from a big city

No fancy shops are here
But one place does sell beer

I’ve not been on a plane
Nor ridden in a train

We have no traffic jams
Our pigs will soon be hams

You won’t see foreign cars
Or any movie stars

I’m just a country gal
No country boy’s my pal

And hopefully one day
I’ll walk along Broadway


My home’s the family farm
No need for an alarm

We don’t see movie stars
At night we look for Mars

No fancy stores to shop
We pray for a good crop

No need for a Corvette
A tractor’s what you get

The country gal I date
Will soon become my mate

I’ll stay here till I die
Come visit, you’ll know why

You have to hide

You have to hide
Beneath a veil
Because these rules
Still prevail

Covered up
From head to toe
Who you are
Few will know

It must be done
For your protection
Men will not
Seek your affection

Being covered
Isn’t new
Even Grandma
Had to do

Too afraid
You won’t protest
This is how
You must be dressed

I know your face

I know your face
You look so nice
Reporting the news
But never advice

I know your face
You host a show
If I see it live
I'd say hello

I know your face
You used to sing
They immitate you
You were the King

I know your face
And you know why
You're a prince
In the public eye

I know your face
Because you preach
You're televised
Millions you reach

I see your face
We're all related
We're the people
Who God created

I don't see my face
I do see my toes
And my face
The mirror shows

Nothing lasts forever

August 1, 2007 during rush hour traffic, Interstate 35 W. Bridge collapsed in Minneapolis, MN over the Mississippi River. Dozens of vehicles plummeted into the river; 4 dead, 79 injured and 20 missing. Repairs were being made on the bridge at the same time it collapsed.

In just a few years
You’ve driven your car
Too many miles
You fear to go far

Trade it in
Buy something new
A car that’s red
Or one that’s blue

It’s obsolete
You need to update
Your home PC
You can not wait

How long will they last
If one of them breaks
Aside you’ll cast

Replace it instead
Get something new
It’s not very old
But why make do

What was the cause
That bridge collapsed
Though so much traffic
And time elapsed

Forever and ever
What made you think
That bridge would last
And never sink

Santa's in Texas

Santa’s in a swim suit
Trying to stay cool
He’s in Houston, Texas
Swimming in my pool

He's wearing a bikini
That matches his red suit
When he removes his beard
He’s really kind of cute

His reindeer are enjoying
The warm December breeze
Rudolf with his red nose
Hardly has to sneeze

The elves are busy working
They couldn’t leave the shop
Because it’s almost Christmas
They haven’t time to stop

When Santa comes to visit
With gifts for you this year
Instead of milk and cookies
Just leave him Shiner beer

Santa’s relocating
The North Pole’s way too cold
He’ll move his operation
Once his house is sold

Our traveling home

A motor home
Or a 5th wheel
To travel around
We think it’s ideal

The walls slide out
To give it more space
But too small to have
A hiding place

A traveling home
With just one door
A gourmet kitchen
And rooms on one floor

There’s shopping to do
And sights to be seen
But we’ll make sure
We keep it clean

We’re not out of touch
With a satellite dish
For something do to
We might even fish

We’re stocked with food
And bought new tires
To go on our journey
Much gas it requires

There’s no need to rush
We’ll stay here awhile
We’re not on a schedule
With our new lifestyle

We all look alike

Hey, I think I know you
Perhaps we’ve met before
You looked familiar
When you entered the door

You say that I remind you
Of someone that you know
I look exactly like her
So you had to say hello

You look like someone famous
Your clothes resemble his
You do this to make money
Because you’re in show biz

I can’t tell you apart
You look like one another
Of course you must be twins
Do you often fool your mother

We all resemble someone
How different can we be
How different can we look
We’re one big family tree

Birds on a wire

How amazing it is seeing all the Starlings standing together on the utility wires at a major intersection in Houston, TX

When it’s dusk
They congregate
Doesn’t matter
Who comes late

Hundreds filling
Many spaces
Coming from
So many places

Standing on
Their own trapeze
Swaying in
A gentle breeze

Wires crossing
Chirping sounds
Are being said

Traffic’s moving
Through the light
Soon it will
Get dark tonight

Happy though
I got to see
All those birds
Before they flee

The Battlefield

For many months
Each time of year
Wars are fought
Both far and near

On either side
Lining up
So none can hide

All dressed up
In battle gear
Running towards
The one who’s near

Fighting hard
To make them fall
Stop the one
That has the ball

A battlefield
Where no one dies
A game they play
They're all allies
