Take The Time To Vote (2006)


I wish that I would have voted in the last election-
I wish I could have put in my two cents’ worth, to make my selection.

I wish that I didn’t let it pass me by-
For whatever reason, I just don’t know why.

Maybe it was the “other” things that I was doing that got in the way-
Or maybe I just plain forgot. What else can I say?

Let’s see, there is the early voting or through the mail that I could have done-
I must say that there are quite a few days involved in either one.

Or I actually could have gone on the selected day-
I admit it; I just downright let those too many other things get in the way.

There is shopping, working and others things to tend to-
I guess I didn’t have enough time left over when I was through.

There is clothes washing, dusting and cleaning the car out-
If I’d had a little time left over, I might have voted after running all about.

But, wait! Did I happen to forget that voting in this country is my right?
Thanks to all who did and are leading the fight.

To ensure that I can continue to have the privilege to vote-
I guess by not voting last year, somehow or another I missed the boat.

There are too many reminders, for me to forget-
It’s all over the TV, covered in the newspapers, and even flashing at me on the Internet.

I think that this year I will push everything else aside-
And take a few moments to vote, with much dedication and pride.

And in case you’re wondering what really kept me from voting that very last time-
I really did! I just wanted to encourage those who didn’t, in my own expression, through rhyme.

Let’s all make an effort to remember-
To get out and vote this November.


Presidents During My Lifetime (2006)

When former President, Gerald R. Ford, passed away,

Some disheartening words, I heard some younger folks say.


“I don’t know who he is, for he was President before my time”-

Which made me want to review the Presidents in my own

lifetime, with a little added rhyme.

On his second term in the midst of getting the job done.

A list that we all can all freely review every now and then-

Acknowledging the fact that we didn’t need to “be there,” in order to remember when.



Three Things That You Do When You Go To The Grocery Store (2006)


1. You check out the fruits.

2. You browse through the frozen section.

3. You forget what you came for to begin with.


And as soon as you pull up in the drive-

You remember, and once again to the grocery

store you have to arrive.
