Three Places To Find Parachutes (2008)

1. On soldiers.

2. In a kids’ toy box.

3. On an executive’s back.
=====================================
And golden ones at that gone overboard-
Do we believe that the recent bailout will
actually leave this greedy bunch having
to jump without a cord?

A Child’s Time In Simple Rhyme # 209

Just like the adults while in drive-

To buckle my seat belt I will always strive.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 545 (Ice House)

That ice place-
Was once an important space.
.
For before A/C, it played its role-
And, many hung out there, is
what we’ve been told.
.
To cool off, and have a drink too-
With so much heat, this was the
activity, to do.
.
Back then, a huge chunk, of ice-
To bring home, was so nice.
.
The local ice house, was the place,
of the day-
Until finally, that A/C, made its
way.
.
A few, of them, are still alive-
But not as many, with less drive.
.
That ice place-
Was once an important space.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 462 (Buddy Holly)

 

Back in 1959-
The Day the Music Died
we came to find.
.
.
.
“A BROWN EYED HANDSOME MAN”-
Apparently was dealt a bad hand.
.
.
.
We could “RAVE ON”-
But, he would still be gone.
.
.
.
“IT”S SO EASY”-
To look back and remember how
it used to be.
.
.
.
“OH, BOY”-
The songs written and sung,
brought such joy.
.
.
.
“LOVE IS STRANGE”,”PEGGY
SUE GOT MARRIED”, and
just plain old “PEGGY SUE”-
In our collections, we did
acrue.
.
.
.
“EARLY IN THE MORNING”,
and on “BLUE DAYS, BLACK
NIGHTS”-
To “THINK IT OVER”, is
right there, in our sights.
.
.
.
“IT DOESN”T MATTER ANYMORE”,
of course, it does-
“WORDS OF LOVE”, with a
“HEARTBEAT”, just because.
.
.
.
“GIRL ON MY MIND”, “I”M GONNA
LOVE YOU TOO”, and “TRUE LOVE
WAYS”-
Made us all want to dance, on many
celebrated days.
.
.
.
“WHAT TO DO”-
Now that it is over and through.
.
.
.
But, of course, to listen to “LOVE ME”,
“MAYBE BABY”, and “THAT’LL BE THE
DAY”-
The life and music of Buddy Holly, will
never go away.
.
.
.
Back in 1959-
The Day the Music Died,
we came to find.
