Hope Springs Eternal

Hope springs eternal
Like a streak of light
That pierces through the darkness
Of despair…

Hope springs eternal
Like a flower
Growing through a crack
In the concrete…

Hope springs eternal
Like an ember of glowing coal
Glowing through the deadness
Of the ashes…

Hope springs eternal
Like a small, encouraging whisper
Cutting through the silence
That follows failure…

Kamikaze Romance

It’s a kamikaze romance
With our hearts strapped in the seats
And we wage a war called Love
And we’ll not concede defeat
Even if it means flying
In the face of certain doom
We both know the end is coming,
And the end is coming soon…

It’s a kamikaze romance
How sweet the flight, though, while it lasts
Hurtling through the air
Watching heart-shaped clouds zooming past…
Let’s try, love, not to think
Of how this must come to an end
We know it will not last forever
But at least we can pretend…

It’s a kamikaze romance
And when our course starts turning downwards

Have Not

Some people have not a worry;
Some people have not a care –
As to money, or where they’ll sleep
Or what they’ll eat or wear…
some people take it for granted
Their luck in all these things;
Some people have not that privilege –
For some people have not anything.

Some people have not a worry;
Some people have not a care –
’Cause they’ve always had a place to call home
And a filling meal to share…
Some people think this is normal;
Some people have never thought
That for others it’s not normal at all –
’cause some people have nought.

Yet money can’t buy happiness;
Or peace of mind maintain

On Blood, Water, and Other Fluids of Varying Density

Blood is thicker than water
So they say
But so is jam, and honey,
And mercury, and porridge, and-
Let’s just say a lot of things
Are thicker than water.

Blood is thicker than water
So they say
But there’s ‘a friend who sticks closer than a brother’-
So is that a ‘water’ or a ‘blood’,
Or a watered-down ‘blood’
Or a bloodied-up ‘water’?

There are many kinds of friends-
Depending on their circulations-
Indeed, some are so thick
They need nuclear-powered hearts
Just to pump all that tar
To all parts of their bodies

A Few More Words On Money...

Money isn’t the answer to most of life’s questions –
But it’s a pretty good guess
’Cause when the choice is between
Crying bitter tears, out in the cold
Into your filthy garments;
And crying bitter tears in your palace
Into your velvet pillow;
Then comfortable misery
Beats impecunious misery
Every time.

Money can’t buy a friendship
But it can buy a yacht
And some people prefer
Partnerships to companionship
But like cruise ships most of all –
The warmth of loving, and being loved;
Replaced with fur coats and central heating
And the spark of affection
With the glint of carats.

A Few Words on Money

Money can’t make you happy –
But it can sure help
Money can’t buy love
But good imitations exist;
Not necessarily Chinese
But if that’s what you’re into –

Man can’t live without Love
But many of us would settle for some money
Money sells – just ask the gangsta rappers
Who throw it up like confetti
Or the televangelists
Who rake it in by the basketful.

Talk is cheap –
Unless you’re the aforementioned rapper
Or preacher –
In which case, the inverse is true;
’Cause they cash in on that money
Who talk of little else.

Ode to the Modern Work-Man

O, wretched modern work-man
The years, they pass you by
Everything you believe
Is nothing but a lie.

O, wretched modern work-man
From your neckties to your socks
You’re nothing but a slave
To pictures in a box.

O, wretched modern work-man
You live for the Public Eye
Your life is but a parody
Whose foundation is a lie.

O, wretched modern work-man
You strive, and save, and yearn
To keep up with the Kamaus
Spending more than you earn.
