Cracker Jack

“Preparing for tapestry
sowing gone awry
Fables will be borne by
pin cushions in the sky

Awaiting leader ships
to keep a world in check
We will iron out wrinkles
onboard the landing decks

They’ll be so astonished
by all pointed things
Masters of those carriers
floating high with teens

Pressing by smartphones
will travel home the fastest
Pins take hits in pockets
while turkeys get blasted

Veterans return and
talk of time well spent
Except for missing ones
landing with other gents

If history repeats itself
and we’re attacked
Who will be on which side
is held by Cracker Jack”

Decisions


“Strong resolution can be a solution
For confusion from contusions
If you’re reeling with bad feelings
From getting hit by life’s big fist

Blurred vision hinders decisions
You won’t get stuck if you’ll duck
Then counterpunch with a hunch
That you can tell will ring life’s bell”

Dog

“I’ve learned about the ups and downs
The paths that we can go
And found from being my own boss
It’s based on the payload
Others on a handheld journey
Above those down below
Are caught by the traveling sweeps
Of their check it out show

So, in the West and to the East
The winds will hit their mark
Until the chance of showing up
Is blown away in dark
And morning brings another day
For steadfast photo ops
While travelers that can’t sit still
Put us in touch with shots

Castaways, cast away
From a place they called Nod
Castaways, cast away
To a home inside pods
Castaways, cast away
From a place they called Nod
Castaways, cast away
Inside pods

Don’t think of me understanding
Who we have become?
How I may fit into the plans
While they’re on the run
Carried away inside a show
What will bring the sun
Call me windswept Todo
On a web being spun

Castaways, cast away
From a place they called Nod
Castaways, cast away
To a home inside pods
Castaways, cast away
From a place they called Nod
Castaways, cast away
Inside pods

Breakaway, break away
With great Dog!”
