Money Is The Root of All Evil

Don't listen to a word they say,
Money can't really be that way,
To say money is evil surely can't be true,
Isn't it something that we all love to use,
To think that money is evil would you have to agree
That the thing that prints it would as evil as can be!

Wouldn't that mean that the Government
Is the root of all this evil merriment,
Simply because they print all of it!

Bird Flu

As the flu flies
What foolish things can we do
To stop people from getting the flu?

Stop what we are doing
That would be our death
Imagine not going to work
Play and rest?

The flu is something
That affects so many others
It is not supposed to come here
And if it does,
I have a suggestion,
Why don't we get a hunting for a cure,
And send it to South Texas
With our Vice President
And let him take a shot at the cure!

A Whale Of A Poem

Recently,
As stories go,
A tale was told,
About an old man,
And a fish,
He really wasn't a real fish!

He was a whale you know!
Anyways,
It seems that fish shallowed the man,
And inside the fish he did live,
Seven days and seven nights.

Oh what a fright,
That man did go through,
He inside of a fish,
Could have easily ended up his dish.

That story although a whopper,
I thought could not have been top,

The Plight of The Modern Education or Why Johnny Can't Read

The plight of modern education,
Is much more complicated than some imagined.

You see at first,
Many people thought money was the problem,
So they robbed some from the rich to
Give to the poor,
Now they wonder what happened to their
Test scores.

With all of this social engineering,
What did they accomplish?
All they did was bring down scores,
Bring down the morale,
And bring down the level of education,
Of our great nation.

Does this make sense,
Is this wrong,
What has happened to our education?

Enough Said

Loss of life, loss of money, loss of your wife-maybe a loss of your job can not compare with this!
Over the river,
Through the woods,
That is the only thing that I heard.
The screams were there,
So were the sighs,
Oh, why or why?

Everyone convened on the back porch,
I never realized what it was for,
Surely, It couldn't be,
That they were expecting me.
I thought that I was their friend,
They left the light on,
But wait what is that they have in their hands,
Maybe I shouldn't go,
But there she is,
If I don't go,
Will I regret it!
She will never let me live it down,

Down The Aisle For A Tax Cut?

When is it finally over,
When do you know when you are history,
When those sweet little nothings,
Those things you once whispered,
Now fall on deaf ears,
Is it time to pack up,
Get your things,
And just leave!
Well, enough said,
Their beauty is fading,
Their greedy motives are revealed,
Did they like us for ourselves,
Or for our money's appeal?
Is it a matter of greed,
Love or lust,
Who can you really trust.

With all of the people lining up,
It is time to make our intentions know,
It is time to leave the talk behind,

July 21,1969- The Eagle has landed

Houston we have landed
It is one small step,
To land on the moon in this decade,
Just as JFK promised.

Not because it was easy
But because it was hard,
That is what he said,
And that is what we did!

The only problem was since those words
Were said our country had changed.
Gone are JFK, RFK, and MLK
Gone is LBJ,
Now Nixon is the one,
But objective remained the same
To land on the moon
No matter what the cost

On this summer day in 1969

Living Large In Poverty

All things being equal I'd rather be rich,
However, thing don't always work out,
So I'm resigned to spend my time in poverty,
Working in the dirt and grime.

Why, or why me Lord, I may ask,
Gently proding the almighty for just one task,
I wondered if it would be possible,
Just bless me temporarily the ability to pay my bills,
Then I will be a changed fellow.

I then figured then that money was my problem.

What I didn't realize then,
But I do now,
It isn't a matter of money,
It is a matter of know how.

Now matter how you work,
You may never get ahead,

Is Education A Business?

Is Education A Business

Is education a business
Or should it even be?

This is a question, which has always bothered me!
What is the purpose of educating students?

Should we pay more to teachers
Or could we do something even more prudent?

If you listen to some administrators the problem is money
When asked they will say, ' There simply is not enough to have any! '


If this were truly the problem the cure could be
Raise our already high taxes to what they really should be.

However, money may not be solely the answer
The question moreover they said coldly may actually be,

A look at the state of education in our society today or The New 3 R's Of TodayLearning, Education, and School

Learning, Education, and School


Many years ago, education was much simpler, or so it seemed!
You had the Three R’s, a red brick school house, and it was clean!
Then we added courses like Latin and Greek- of how awful- hard to speak,
Never fear, let us add courses that will help art, shop and Home Ec- for something to eat.

That’s right, food for thought,
After all isn’t that is what school is all about.
For forty plus years we followed that rule,
We cooked up a great education until finally in the end we listened to the political correctness fools

We discarded the ingredients that made our school great only to add new programs and policies which promote racism and hate..
What happened to our vocational programs, places where we taught our students trades,
What happened to learning work as part of the dignity of man?
What happened to learning is easy to see, instead of learning correctly,
We are learning to fail because we are failing to read,
Sstudents are porous and need to be reached.
