A New Star In The Sky

Contemplating the wonder of life…

Excerpted from   –   A New Star In The Sky

I looked up and there it was
New star in the sky
Why’s it there? Or just because?
Beauty way up high

Doesn’t really matter why
Only that it’s there
And I watch it with a sigh
Shine without a care…

A Little Girl’s Life

Doing the right thing…

   A Little Girl’s Life

A hero acts now
And saves a little girl’s life
He broke the rules how?

He knows who he is…

A Difficult Job

Contemplating public service…

   A Difficult Job

Curse the IRS?
Doing a difficult job
And mainly righteous

But Sometimes

On the need for penance…

   But Sometimes

I know every day
What she means but sometimes I
But forget to say

A tribute to those in the doghouse…   My brethren…

Ready to Go

Of redemption, love, and commitment…

   Ready to Go

When right who will stand?
I’m ready to go. My kids
Really understand

A Little Wild

Of redemption, then love and commitment…

   A Little Wild

She likes the bad boys
She likes the jazz and the thrill
Though that’s not worked out so well
But lecturing her to choose some nice guy is just noise

She’s been looking for a while
Though for what she’s not sure for she does need nice
But the thought of some nice boring gentleman is excruciating

Ever walking on the wild side his life has always been exciting
More than once in a while he’s been known to roll the dice
Yeah more than a little wild

And though women try reforming him he’ll not give up the wild ways or the toys
But incredibly loyal and he’s always treated his women well
She’s finally found what she’s needed you can tell
With this nicest of bad boys
