Choices

We all go through moments

where we may face a bad temptation

but we have choices,

we don’t have to give in

We can turn around instead

& choose to run from sin

Jerry

Jerry was a dreamer & a schemer of a man

Always coming up w/all sorts of plans

Some of his plans, they weren’t worth spit

but the thinking bulb in his mind was always lit

he’d do anything he could to get food

& make rent

from selling costume jewelry

down at the local flea market

to working rides and booths

on the carnival circuit

People were always surprised

how creative he could get

Flamingo’s 50’s

Back where I was raised originally

There was a restaurant called “Flamingo’s 50’s”

It was a beautiful place, their food was some of the best

I’ve ever had the pleasure to eat, I especially liked their icees

to beat the Texas Summer heat

In case you didn’t guess, they had a 1950’s theme

I really miss that place, but occasionally

I still have flashes of it, in my dreams

& memory

Infinite Complexity

One thing I know, one thing I see

Is people have infinite complexity

We’re not all one thing, or all another

but a mixture

A mixture of our Love, and hope

Our joy & sorrow,

we’re shaped by our yesterdays & tomorrows

A mixture of pleasure & pain, a mixture of caution

& wanting to spread our wings

A mixture of a million and one+ other things
