Another Petal Falls


A rosebush is like a family.
Each home is a rose.
The petals the people.
***
Just as people pass.
The petals fall.
Eventually the rose is bare.
***
A home may close.
The flower may wither.
But the rosebush keeps growing.
***
Each petal is remembered.
Every rose is not forgot.
The rosebush is not lost.
***
So remember each petal.
And don’t forget each rose.
Watch as the rosebush grows.

Alternative Facts


We live in a time,
Filled with opinion not fact,
Filled with fantasy not news,
Where WordPress depresses,
And claims to be views.
***
We are closer to war,
Believing alternative facts,
Believing alternative news,
The rumour mill,
And the next daily sleuth.
***
Where are we going,
When alternative news becomes fact,
When alternative fact becomes news,
Are we lining our destruction,
Pulling the pin, lightning the fuse.
***
Is it not our right,
To believe alternative facts,
To believe alternative news,
Spreading our world,
Sharing our views.
***
Rights have responsibility,
Like teaching real facts,
Like dispelling fake news,
So be responsible and teach,
But not just your views.

They Will Not Win


We stand together,
Stand as one,
We stand against them,
They have not won,
We will stand strong,
And show them all,
They won’t win,
No not at all.

Spend Spend Spend


Happy thanksgiving,
Let’s all give thanks,
And spend spend spend.
***
Remember to thank,
The busy bank,
And spend spend spend.
***
And why not some more,
You wanted it for sure,
Go out and spend spend spend.
***
Did you see that pen,
I’m sure the budget can bend,
Go on spend spend spend.

Remember


On this day,
Remembrance Sunday,
I will Remember the fallen,
I will Remember the wounded
And I will Remember the fighting.
*
They fought the fight to keep us safe,
They fight the battle to this day,
The bravery and valor with which the fight,
Has made it safer for me.
*
Thank you to those fallen,
Your lives wont be forgotten,
Thank you to those survivors,
Your lives show our victories,
Thank you to those fighting,
Taking the hard task to make each citizen safe.
*
To those fighting,
May you have a quick and safe journey home,
Back to the land you protect.
*
To them all,
I salute you.

Today In History


Today is special,
In many ways,
It’s history shows,
Many shades,
Born in history,
Were many children,
Form poets,
To composers,
To Nazi Leaders,
And even yet,
People born today,
May grow infamous,
In the future of today,
Some names of note,
Like Nils Bohr,
Or James Whitcomb Riley,
Sit alongside those of,
Heinrich Himmler,
And Vladimir Putin,
