A PRETTY FACE

You’ve been taken down so far below
To the dark depths of your pathetic soul
Plaguing you still …after all of these years
You’re left with nowhere to go.

The memories haunting, the sound of her voice
Still echoing inside your mind
You’re given no choice, you can’t escape
Held captive after all of this time.

Her life goes on, untarnished, unharmed
And yet, you’re here still pining away
Living each moment over and over
Thoughts of her sabatogging your day.

What marks the spot, an X or a WHY?
Like a warn out record on the stereo
What gives strength to our weakest desires
What makes you stoop so low?

The object of favor, the lustful desire
So undeserved and so easily misplaced
The charm, the obsession…. nothing more
Than a girl with a pretty face.

OVER AND OVER

You continue to lie
Again and again
No point in trying
Where to begin?

Over and over
Time passes by
The same story gets told
Can’t help wonder why.

You grin and you smile
You look away
You look for an out
You look for a way.

No one believes you
Save your excuses
Nobody wins
Everyone loses.

Step back, step away
There’s too much at stake
Stop laughing, pretending
With that smirk on your face.

It’s over, I’m done
Get out, close the door
I’ve heard this same story
I’ve heard it before.

We’ve run out of time
I’ve had enough
Please pack your packs
Take all of your stuff.

Over and over
Over again
Everyone loses
Nobody wins.

WAKE UP

You’ve closed your heart and mind
To reason and the truth
You turn and walk away
Think this doesn’t affect you.

What a fool to listen to
The beliefs of liars and thieves
To think what you are told
Is all you really need.

Your judgement seems tainted
Your opinions not quite right
We differ in our outlook
All you want to do is fight.

He is a bully and a jester
He doesn’t really care
He’ll sell you down the river
Don’t oppose him, don’t you dare.

The lights are surely blinking
Don’t throw caution to the wind
Wake up and pay attention
Don’t get too close, you might fall in.

IT’S CLEAR

Impeach and imprison
No questions asked
He is responsible
Hold him to task.

Over and over
Over again
We listen to lies
Let proceedings begin.

Positions are clear
No questions or doubt
You’ve got to remove him
Please take him out.

The lying, the cheating
No respect for the law
He takes what he wants
And, he wants it all.

Truth spoken to power
Has been ignored
What are you doing?
What are you waiting for?

Impeach and imprison
He’s crossed the line
Remove him from office
You’ve run out of time.

AN ACT OF TREASON

To say that I’m appalled
Is a blatant understatement
This president is bold
We are in need of a replacement.

A clear and present danger
He’s put us in harm’s way
An open act of treason
Never thought I’d see this day.

He is siding with a dictator
An evil, cold, cruel man
Trump has no idea
He couldn’t possibly understand.

Standing with a Russian leader
Against the FBI
Challenging our democracy
Defending 12 known spies.

Fawning over power
Lusting for power and greed
He is giving Vladimir Putin
Anything he wants or needs.

When will we hear from Mueller
Trump is clearly dangerous
He’s cavorting with a dictator
His behavior …… treasonous.

A Mermaid’s Plea

As I got closer to the jetty
I couldn’t believe my eyes
There she sat upon the rocks
Was I asleep or hypnotized?

Her hair was long and flowing
Her eyes… an emerald green
Was this just my imagination
Or the middle of a dream?

Extremely sleek and beautiful
The sun glistening on her skin
She had a perfect upper body
And below ….a large green fin.

Her voice was calm and soothing
It was music to my ears
She held my hand and smiled at me
Referred to me as “Dear”.

We talked about the ocean
The creatures big and small
She was concerned about pollution
All the garbage and the oil.

She was a mermaid on a mission
She was pleading for my help
She spoke about the others
Never focusing on herself.

Please save the whales and dolphins
All the fish and crustaceans
All the many helpless creatures
That reside in our ocean.

I couldn’t help but notice
The tears falling from her eyes
I tried to reassure her
Didn’t want to see her cry.

In time, we had to say goodbye
I knew she couldn’t stay
Under the water she disappeared
I watched her slip away.

NORA

I sure miss Nora Ephron
Her wit and her charm
The laughter she gave us
Has taken me by storm.

Her class, such grace
Her slant on the mundane
Inspiring and amazing
Her sprit still remains.

Thru all of her movies,
Her books and articles
I felt a true connection
So real and personable.

She was incredibly amazing
Loved by so many and admired
I, myself was quite enamored
I was smittened and inspired.

She was unique and captivating
She had a style all of her own
A brilliant, talented writer
That I wish that I had know.
