    Poetry with Rhyme.....

    Rules of Engagement


    by Tarzana Joe Grantland Rice is noted



    For his quote of lasting fame
    “No matter if you win or lose
    It’s how you play the game”

    Accept defeat with grace
    Think of the children you’ll inspire
    When they go low to beat you
    Take pride that you stayed higher

    Strive for better standards
    Only do what’s kosher—
    For my inspiration…
    I prefer Leo Durocher

    Ask yourself this question
    (And my answer, please infer)
    When the duel is over
    Are you Hamilton or Burr?

    The legislation’s loaded
    And it’s pointed at your head
    The New Deal isn’t new, it’s old
    It isn’t green, it’s red.

    They’re coming for you barbeques
    They’re coming for your cars
    You can move from California
    But you’ll have to move to Mars

    They’re coming for your daughters and
    They’re coming for your sons
    They’re coming for your doctors and
    They’re coming for your guns

    The rules they say they honor
    Aren’t rules that you can trust
    Fight this thing like Gandhi
    And they’ll grind you into dust

    Wear your MAGA hat, my friend
    Salute the flag and love it
    And when they bring up Grantland Rice
    Tell them they can shove it

    Make sure the world can hear you
    When you have a viewpoint, shout it
    It’s your right to live a normal life
    Be militant about it …..snip~



    Don't only Practice your Art, but force your way into its Secrets, For it and Knowledge can Raise men to the Divine!!!!! Ludwig Van Beethoven ~

    Disobedience
    By AA Milne

    James James
    Morrison Morrison
    Weatherby George Dupree
    Took great
    Care of his Mother,
    Though he was only three.
    James James Said to his Mother,
    "Mother," he said, said he;
    "You must never go down
    to the end of the town,
    if you don't go down with me."

    James James
    Morrison's Mother
    Put on a golden gown.
    James James Morrison's Mother
    Drove to the end of the town.
    James James Morrison's Mother
    Said to herself, said she:
    "I can get right down
    to the end of the town
    and be back in time for tea."

    King John
    Put up a notice,
    "LOST or STOLEN or STRAYED!
    JAMES JAMES MORRISON'S MOTHER
    SEEMS TO HAVE BEEN MISLAID.
    LAST SEEN
    WANDERING VAGUELY:
    QUITE OF HER OWN ACCORD,
    SHE TRIED TO GET DOWN
    TO THE END OF THE TOWN -
    FORTY SHILLINGS REWARD!"

    James James
    Morrison Morrison
    (Commonly known as Jim)
    Told his
    Other relations
    Not to go blaming him.
    James James
    Said to his Mother,
    "Mother," he said, said he:
    "You must never go down to the end of the town
    without consulting me."

    James James
    Morrison's mother
    Hasn't been heard of since.
    King John said he was sorry,
    So did the Queen and Prince.
    King John
    (Somebody told me)
    Said to a man he knew:
    If people go down to the end of the town, well,
    what can anyone do?"

    (Now then, very softly)
    J.J.
    M.M.
    W.G.Du P.
    Took great
    C/O his M*****
    Though he was only 3.
    J.J. said to his M*****
    "M*****," he said, said he:
    "You-must-never-go-down-to-the-end-of-the-town-
    if-you-don't-go-down-with-ME!"
    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

    The old man was crossing the street,
    He had only one car to beat,
    It ran him down,
    Dragged him halfway thru town,
    The only thing left was his feet.
    Playing the blues is like having to be black twice. Stevie Ray Vaughn missed on both counts. But I never noticed...BB King..

    An old woman was opening a can,
    Fell down next to a fan,
    It chopped off her leg ,
    She now hops around,
    On a peg.

    Blue eyes...


    It doesn't matter if I look
    Into your eyes ,
    At your hair,
    Or really just anywhere,
    Only a princess as you,
    Could be so beautiful ,
    Everywhere...

    He stood on a ledge ,
    Looking to jump,
    Knowing he would land,
    With a big thump,
    They brought in a clown,
    The clown talked him down,
    Now the clown,
    Is the toast of the town

    Dead grandmas dont talk very much,
    Dead grandmas have since lost their touch,
    Dead grandmas no longer work in the garden,
    Not since their veins began to harden ,
    Dead grandmas no longer called honey,
    No longer needed ,
    Since we got the money,
    Dead grandmas are not on the porch,
    Looks like its time,
    To light up the torch,
    Dead grandmas can no longer see,
    Its now ok to strip the bark off that tree,
    Dead grandmas will always be missed,
    I may be of satire ,
    But I love you,.
    Dead grandma.

    Pooh Bear...

    I look in your eyes,
    I see the fire ,
    The look of your,
    Burning desire,
    When you smile,
    I see something sweet,
    You are so beautiful,
    From your head to your feet,
    I hand you my kiss ,
    Never say good bye,
    If you did,
    I'd lay down and cry...

    I drive down the street,
    Where we used to meet,
    I miss seeing you there,
    Yet I stop and stare,
    I think of your hugs,
    I remember your smile,
    Memories of you ,
    Not just today ,
    But for a while,
    Maybe your kiss ,
    Is what I miss ,
    Bright is your sun ,
    Thoughts of you ,
    I can't outrun.

    I found you as a kitten,
    I was quite smitten,
    You had such pretty eyes,.
    A sweet meow ,
    I knew then that for you,
    I'd tell a thousand lies ,
    I took you home,
    Watched you roam,
    You were my kitty,
    So little bitty,
    As you grew older,
    You became bolder,
    You slept on my chest ,
    Nibbled my nose ,
    While I was trying to rest,
    Thank you sweet kitty,
    You made me happy,
    You brought joy to my home
