An Ode to johnman and stuman

Questions with no answers, voices going unheard
Life's full of little challenges and often vision's blurred
But meaning's there if you brush your hair,
Squint and take a looky
When in doubt just give a shout
Then kick back and have a cookie

(it was all I could do not to stick "nookie" in there somewhere ;^) )
MarkintheDark, still at the bar *burp*

I AM

I am
Waiting
For God's evolution

I am
Waiting for the storm

I am
Waiting
For evil to crumble

I am
Waiting for Love

Victory
Is sweetest to those
Who have known defeat

Someday
The plan will be complete
Till then
Love everyone
And make them your friend
In the end
It all comes down to Love

back to the beginning

i'm going back
back to the beginning now
back before plastic
scourged the land

back before sticky wrap
back before handi-wipes
back before candy crap
back to the beginning
i'm gonna start again
cause it looks like where
we're heading
is not where
i want it to end

so i'm going back
back to the beginning now
before there were cars
and sunglasses
and neckties
back before digital
back before analog
back to where we're
just banging sticks
on rocks
making music
however we please

i'm going back
don't try to find me now
back before numbers on a dial
back before hands on a face
back before time
back to the beginning now
i'm gonna start again
check my math and
compass readings
to make sure
this is the trail
i want to be on now

back before new school
back before new wave
back before new age
back to the beginning now
maybe i'll just
never leave at all

taking me back home

oh that really takes me back
to 1979 and i'm at a party
with john steinbeck jr
and he's talking abuot buddhamind
and all the ladies are
rubbing and stroking on ginsberg
and its a little nauseating
so i wander out the back door
onto a balcony and sit down
on some concrete steps
to bemoan the follies of
fickle fame when out stomps
kesey and he's on a rant
pacing back and forth
on this baclony like he was
the pope or the leading general
of some deranged country
talking about my tai chi
teachers in glowing terms
jane and bataan that guy
was something else push
him to the ground and he'd
pop right back up like some
punching balloon clown. ahhhh.
and you know the whole time
he's talking to me and about me
asking questions and not
really
listening to the answers
just using them as his
platform to launch,
and then he'd pace
back and forth on the balcony
before me on the concrete
talking in the rhythm
of his walking and
i just sat listening
holding my breath
not knowing
where it was going
yeah that really
takes me back
