No don't go

No please don't go

Just please stay

We will pass our time away

Inside the sunshine

That we have stumbled

Upon.

Now that you're home

Stay awhile

Take a load off your bones,

And let me say

I don't ever want to see

You go away.

--- a

thanks for the kind words, stuman and tl. i'm just trying to express a little intelligence,
while i appear to be here. at any given moment, i'm gettin' way more than i'm givin',
especially when it comes to dead.net. i enjoy trying to find my way around
this vast virtual library architecture, and reading yer'all posties. love, andy
ps i try to tiptoe in while you're all sleeping, and lay little poem-roses on your pillows,
for when you awaken.

Think you are a gifted poet. Agree w/Stuman-think you are very very good. Am really liking your poems-your style, your darkish undertones, the words you chose. They read like songs. Thank you sooo much for sharing!

Sleeping Dogs

Wakin' up this morning
Drinkin' yesterday's coffee
It's burnt tasting and bitter
Just like the two of us.

I think I'll let this morning
Turn right into tomorrow
I'm just gonna lean back
And turn on the Jets

Cause I got nothin' to add
To this pile of words
Just don't want to see you
Turn your butter into swords

So if you find me dreaming
You might just leave me be
Don't you know some stones
Are better left unturned

Sometimes it's better to
Just walk on by
Walk on by and
Let sleeping dogs lie.

Wakin' up this morning
Drinkin' yesterdays coffee
It's burnt tasting and bitter
Just like the two of us

I think I'll let this morning
Turn right into tomorrow
I'm just gonna lean back
And turn on the jets.

come on home

I know it's been a long time
And a long, long, lonely road.
And I know that I hurt ya, babe
And I just can't make that go.

Baby, please don't make me
Go through all this all alone
It was hard enough before you left
But now there's just no hope

And if you're wondering why I called today
I just called to say,

Baby, I love you, and won't you please
Come on home
Baby won't you come on
Won't you come on home.

Baby won't you promise me
You won't never, never go

I know it's been a long road
And you've come along, long way
And I know that I hurt ya baby,
And I just can't make that go away

And if you're wondering
Why I called today
I just called to say

Baby, I love you. and won't you please
Come on home
Baby won't you come on
Baby won't you come on
Baby won't you come on home.

The Righteous Indignation Rag

Hi folks,

As the politicians continue their parties in this election season, I've written this little satirical rag to help us recover our righteous indignation and moral outrage over what these bozos have done to our country and world. Everyone can sing along:

So, a one-a and a two-a:

The Righteous Indignation Rag

Welcome friends, how do you do
Glad to see some of you pullin’ through
Tell me now and tell me true
Has this ol’ world been lyin’ to you

Gather round and tip your hat
The shadow man is the one in the black
Got your name and number too
Photographed in red, white and blue

Blame it on the liberal pinko fags
Do the righteous indignation rag

You know, my god he don’t love the Jews
The camel jockey ‘slamics too
The Buddhists man can be such a bore
Drop those atheists dead on the floor

I know ‘cause Falwell told me so
Now serving time way down below
No air-conditioned fat cat limousine
Just dinin’ on his sulfur and kerosene

So be you straight or dressed in drag
Do the righteous indignation rag

Come on, boys, let’s join in the fight
Through the gates of Hell we’ll be marchin’ tonight
Dress you up in khaki and green
A pocket bible and an M-16

You can fire on everything in sight
God’ll sort ‘em out later tonight
So jump onboard the war’s begun
The new world order is a barrel of fun

So wrap my ass up in the flag
Do the righteous indignation rag

They bomb my brain with EMP
My guitar replies with its own remedy
Dancin’ in the grass to keep me sane
My mind goes a’ridin’ on the wind and the rain

They call, “To arms!”, but I ignore
Back myself right out of that door
Locked forever, I’m gone, goodbye
I got no mind for the idiot lies

Time to split this scene’s a drag
Do the righteous indignation rag
Do the righteous indignation rag
Do the righteous indignation rag…

Peace,
Byrd

ain't the way

What was that You used to say to me
Things sure ain't What they used to be.

Running crazy in the streets
Living alone in between the sheets
Was a struggle just to make it day-to-day
Always looking for a better way.

Never quite seen Anything come free
No, things sure ain't what they used to be.

Kids running crazy in the streets
Night walker's dream, but they never sleep
You talk so loud, but you look afraid
Now it's time to sleep in the beds we made.

So, well, come in to reality
Still the same as it's always been
And if you're still into the run around
Well, everybody else long gone to ground.

What was that You used to say to me
Yeah things sure ain't What they used to be.

pink fluffy clouds

Stranger in a strange land

I'm drifting away on
Pink Fluffy Clouds

I pause while
the picture changes

You seem to appear
Right out of nowhere

But it just keeps on
Getting stranger,
Stranger and stranger.

You turn your head
And toss your hair
And I feel you
Getting closer

How can I get you to
Come over here
So I can tell you what
I already told you

What I already told yuh
What I already told yu-uh.

That I'm drifting away on
Pink Fluffy Clouds
I pause while the picture changes.

You seem to appear
Right out of nowhere,

But it just keeps on getting
Stranger and stranger
Stranger and stranger.

Ran into an old friend....

in the lot at ratdog show
Just strollin around
checking out the sounds
heard my name from the crowd
took a look around
My old friend Dave!!
Back from the haze
of the grate ole daze!
We hugged and kissed
but how sad my sister he did miss
he never got to say goodbye
it left a tear in his eye.
