One night in Kenya..

The year is 1958 and I am 14 yrs old on safari with my step dad and 2 of his friends it is night out on the Maasai Mara I sit by the fire listening to the talk and especially the tales the P.H.is telling of lions coming into safari camps at night and how one walked right through his tent one night while he slept..he noticed the tracks (pug marks) on waking now this was scary enough but it was the lions roaring out on the velt that along with his stories that gave me the shakes.

I guess…

Endless Road Hoyt Axton & Pernell Roberts

At night when the place is quiet..I sit alone

this is my dream time,

a time when I play my songs and let them take me

back to when I was young-and free.

Back when the world was like a three dimensional map

and I was free to go where and when I pleased.

I need this time alone

to dream. In the morning..or early afternoon if my Creator

smiles on me again I'll gladly face the day ..my loving wife beside me

cats surrounding me....but until then....…

Old Soldier Lacy J Dalton

Old Soldier by Lacy J. Dalton

I saw him last Friday on a big concert stage

The warm amber lights did a lot for his age

I touched the backstage pass I wore like a prize

I wanted a good look at the old soldier's eyes

With a towel cross his shoulders to soak up the sweat…

The Ballad Of The Ice Worm Cocktail

The Ballad Of The Ice-Worm Cocktail Robert William Service

To Dawson Town came Percy Brown from London on the Thames.

A pane of glass was in his eye, and stockings on his stems.

Upon the shoulder of his coat a leather pad he wore,

To rest his deadly rifle when it wasn't seeking…

The Coco-Fiend

An outworn harlot, lost to hope,

         With staring eyes and hair that's hoary

         I hear her gibber, dazed with dope:

         I often wonder what's her story.

I remember stories my granddad told me as a child of 12 about Cocaine and the damage it could do and how it was legal around the turn of the century and even though he ran booze during the prohibition years he never touched the stuff but a sister got addicted to it and died at 31.He recited this poem to me…

Who Are We And What Is IT?

Are we energy? We can feel, touch and see energy. But it seems we are something more that can’t be described, named or quantified like energy.

Are we the one…

The Ballad Of East And West

Rudyard Kipling

The Ballad of East and West

Oh, East is East, and West is West, and never the twain shall meet,

Till Earth and Sky stand presently at God's great Judgment Seat;

But there is neither East nor West, Border, nor Breed, nor Birth,

When two strong men stand face to face, though…

The Return Robert W Service

The Return

They turned him loose; he bowed his head,

      A felon, bent and grey.

     His face was even as the Dead,

      He had no word to say.

He sought the home of his old love,

      To look on her once more;

     And where her roses breathed above,

      He cowered beside the door.

She sat there in the shining room;

      Her hair was silver grey.

     He stared and stared from out the gloom;

      He turned to go…

Cheer Robert W Service

Cheer

It's a mighty good world, so it is, dear lass,

      When even the worst is said.

     There's a smile and a tear, a sigh and a cheer,

      But better be living than dead;

     A joy and a pain, a loss and a gain;

      There's honey and may be some gall:

     Yet still I…

The Joy Of Being Poor

The Joy Of Being Poor

Robert W. Service

I

Let others sing of gold and gear, the joy of being rich;

But oh, the days when I was poor, a vagrant in a ditch!

When every dawn was like a gem, so radiant and rare,

And I had but a single coat, and not a single care;

When I would feast right royally on bacon, bread and beer,

And dig into a stack of hay and doze like any peer;

When I would wash beside a brook my solitary shirt,

And though it…
