Vietnam

A Poem A Day

  • WATER AND BLACK2:22

I'm gonna tell you the story of Vietnam
Dedicated to the soldiers that are dead and gone
Fighting for our freedom in the USA
A war misunderstood from the very 1st day
17 years old you do as you told
the rich stayed home! boy thats cold!
Propaganda like are Russian alleys filled the air waves
Wrong or right seems not to matter these days
Black or poor jail you get! 
the only thing worse is a Vietnam vet
confusion chaos not an illusion
Blood and guts what an intrusion
A living hell thats my conclusion
Nam Nam the bomb


















some came home to peace and shock
at home we were losers
but in Nam we rocked
M16''s Hueys and jets
Every body now vets 
Body bags stacked ten feet high
the smell of burnt flesh filled the morning sky
Opium and hash we chewed like gum
In Nam we ruled at home scum

woman and children dying and crying
Our government just kept on lying
many of us came home injured or named
Physically disabled aint that a shame

Psychiatric care, drug abuse
Many suicide's from a home made noose 
Fought for our country
Ricked are lives

Asked for help and they gave us jive
















They closed their eyes to are suffering and pain
They fought from their office 
we fought in the rain
Vietnam so insane
A governmental plot for personal game
Schrap metal in our body
They never had a plan
the checks in the mail from Uncle Sam
with that kind of money
who could live

surviving on the streets
why can't they give?
we were on the front lines
they're sipping fine whines 
maiming our bodies on Charlies landmines 
Aginorange post traumatic stress
its a mess, yes 
South east of Asia, east of Indonesia 
Vietnam not a place to please ya
Charlies bombs
missing arms, boo bee traps
what a bunch of crap
who takes the rap
who takes the rap bap bap bap bap?

  • ANOTHER ANGRY GOD MASTER5:41

people I respect singers after I saw amy Wine house film i wrote this

"Amy"

 cause she was high 

butterfly couldn't fly

couldn't find the sky 

butterfly to young to die 

Her husbands was poison 

not a man but boy son

His Cobwebs towered  into  the sky


Butterfly never had a chance 

To fly 

Her father banked her tears 

As she rolled another cigarette 

bowed her head couldn't find her own bed 

No one herd her prayers 

Her music was so loud 

Her husband drank her tears 

Then broke the glass cutting her wings shattering  her dreams

Even God couldn't here her scream 




 cause she was high 

butterfly couldn't fly

couldn't find the sky 

butterfly to young to die







She wanted to sing 

This queen bee with no hive 

Always fighting to stay alive 

Living on the edge balancing on the ledge 

Her words intoxicating 

She'd write them after she'd crash 

Looking for pain to feel 

A bottle of liqueur to heel 







cause she was high 

butterfly couldn't fly

couldn't find the sky 

butterfly to young to die

"Mirror, Mirror,"


Mirror, mirror on the wall

Who’s that dancing

Mirror, mirror on the wall

Leaping into heavens arms

Spinning into paradise

Spiraling into a dream

Leaving yesterday behind them

Mirror, mirror on the wall

Who’s that dancing……..Who’s that dancing


soaring on freedoms wings

Falling in a cloud of forever

Love lifting them higher

Making real look like magic……..magic


Mirror, mirror on the wall Who’s that dancing

Mirror, mirror on the wall Who’s that dancing………dancing

                     A raspy deep tone from cigarettes he's been swallowing 

                                      I can tell your voice is god given

                                     I guess it's from all that  healthy liven 

                                   you look like a front man in a band

                           You got all the cards time to show your hand




My X wife told me don't  sing just talk

in that concrete  jungle

Your flesh Sadducees  me through the mist

Your blinded eyes harkened every kiss

(Chorus)

Your sent of sex you seem to leave it every were  

Your presents makes my Mojo rise

I'm sure you made a lot of wolves cry

And now that I charm you I'm your toy

Like a dog I chase my  pussy  up the tree

Your body is fire

You even make the water dance 

so  fluid took me hire put the devil in a trance

Your flesh Sadducees  me through the mist

Your blinded eyes harkened every kiss

(Chorus)

You make me fly


"Poets Plumb"


You can’t ignore the art that is calling 
Or run from my poets plumb that is blooming
Or sit by a window that challenges ethics
You question my intelligences but ask about my methods
My rhymes speak with a tong that is rolling
My breath and heart are never controlling
Ill cut you to heel your wounds that need bleeding
Ill throw away your books cause readings mis leading
My love will cradle you and trust you wont question
As the mask man voted in the last election
He painted his face afraid how they’d treat him
The serpent wore a tie in order to beat mim or mock him
Morals have fell into the hands of a clock
As time speed up when David launched a rock
You can’t see with eyes that the news is sending
You can’t walk a streight line in a world that is bending
Or hope for change afraid of a triangle
That spies on us from a carrot they dangle
I listened to the flowers and trees cause there honest
The oil and bullets and promises fell upon us
Her heart was hollow and her ego was swollen
She had room full of jurors that drove cars that were stolen
The marinate spoke from a heart that was reel
He was warned by the executioner never to feel
Spatiality was climbing a ladder that was falling
The psychic couldn’t find the phone the priest kept calling
The psychiatrist pushed his shopping cart full of problems
The mathematician followed wanting to sole em
The truth lies in the hands of a baby
Don’t ask the artist cause he's just crazy 

​​​​​"The truth of this artist"


IM Trying my best but i cant make ends meet 
i forgot how to dream cause I don't  ever sleep
I have to steel my food SO this gypsy don't STARVE
I siphon my gas to get TO GET DOWN THE BOULEVARD
i got worn torn jeans and two sock that don't match
 guitar picks in my   pocket were i use to carry  cash
i got tears that sparkle like sun reflecting rain
i got stars in my eyes that hide all my  pain

six strings that love me six strings that care six string to hold me up when no one else is there six strings to feed me six stings to keep me sound i got my head above water and my pride under ground

i never fit in and now that I'm down
i got an seven  empty cups and one thorny crowns
a happy tail to guide me did the bible  lie
is it abraham I-sic or jacob or  the great dane by my side

six strings that love me six strings that care six string to hold me up when no one else is there six strings to feed me six stings to keep me sound i got my head above water and my pride under ground

i got songs climbing lathers and not a penny vie earned 
is it the truth of this artist to crash and then burn
i got a family behind me only when im up
and when im going down its never enough no its never enough

six strings that love me six strings that care six string to hold me up when no one else is there six strings to feed me six stings to keep me sound i got my head above water and my pride under ground




  • oh so it seems4:14

"I am the lion"




Do you feel

True is true 

You look in my eyes and pull the trigger

How in the world could you 

 You think your God recreate me 

I lift my spirit show what you do




I am the lion you animal

I am the lion

I roar

My beauty was for you  -I am strong. Strong 

You took my life




You prove 

Your evil

Did I bother you did I hurt you

You are human not my equal

If there is a heaven there are no people there 

You have proved it once again 

Without thought hurt or fear




I am the lion you animal

I am the lion

I roar

My beauty was for you  

I am strong - Strong 

You took my life







Man destroyed the planet

They seem to take everything for granted 

There hearts turned to granite







Will they ever learn

They seem to just

Take what they want 

What happen to trust




Is there no more respect for us

For every gust another leave falls

And you display us down wall and hall




Listen

Does anybody care

To see my body laying there 

With speechless grief and dark disappear 




I am the lion you animal

I am the lion

I roar

My beauty was for you  

I am strong - Strong 

You took my life




You listen

The killing has to stop - find right in this wrong 

The eyes of my soul give flight to this song 

Wings to carry you 

I am your teacher I am your lion

I am a messenger of hope 

I am nature and a teacher

I am the voice for every creatures 




I am your Battle I am your March 

I am the the war worth fighting for 

I am the pride From the shores Africa across the ocean 

to the doors of America




I am the lion you animal

I am the lion

I roar

My beauty was for you  

I am strong - Strong 

You took my life


“Time transcends time” 

I’m gonna take you somewhere that you’ve never been

We’re gonna ride the sky high in this sanctuary of sin

I come from a place deeper then thought has ever been

And way before the begging could begin

 Time transcends time

I forged a key from a place far worse then hell

I have ideas of love & peace that I keep in a jail cell.

In a world of hello! good bye…. where men aren’t suppose to cry

Angels rule the sky… Love will never die!

Time transcends time

The dope was the genius that wrote this song of victory

Teetering on insanity this enigma will make history

His genius was his ignorance of the mind

He saw the truth when he was blind




Time transcends time 




 I am the fire in the sky that fights the evil of darkness

I am the heart of compaction and the child of forgiveness

As I felt from building blocks of puzzles and rhyme

HE HAD TO FALL TO UNDERSTAND THE CLIMB 




Time transcends time




I flew from my fall  from what I wasn’t suppose to do

I was built by the obstacles God put me through 

I was the question in the answer and the dull in the shine 

The wolf running on water… a sigh that would be mine

Time transcends time


There is a hate between control and me  

There’s a wall standing tall between the dark and my soul

I was the hand in the climb   I was the moral in the crime

 I was the alchemist that spun my tears to wine




Time transcends time




What happens when evil marries love

 The presidents a puppet .the cops a thug, 

Confession is a hocks the minister’s a mime

And I am the out law WITH THIS PROTHETIC rhyme




Time transcends time

I am a messenger of love

An artist of the sublimed


"Bullets Keep Flying"


This maze leads to darkness

every turn  finds  me spinning but

And when i lose am i really winning


I'm looking for a mirror

you know just to see her

her eyes tell the story

if she feels the way i do 

the flames still burning

together were in it  

 out dreams we  shared

 theres nothing  with out you


to live for to hope for to dream for



2x
bullets keep flying but  i keep dodging

cause if one hits me  with out you I'm dying


if i die tonight and

and you were my blanket

my soul smiling 

Here my heart whisper

to your painted toes to your thorny crown

your breath in my ear

i'm holding you closer

now and forever  

weaving are dreams 




bullets keep flying but  i keep dodging

cause if one hits me  with out you I'm dying


you are my peace

I'm the rebel storm

warrior for love

even if i have to pretend to conform

i will stand by you

and heel your bleeding heart

bath  your bothered soul

your spirit comes alive 


2x
bullets keep flying but  i keep on dodging

cause if one hits me  with out you i'm dieing

And I'm lucky i know were beauty lies

I here your voice on the phone

in my head when I'm alone 

and your art always a feast for my eyes

and i pretend you are here

and in my mind you do appear

And I'm lucky i know were beauty lies




and the jealous march around

let them whisper to the ground

its the ones that are bitter that made us wise

and there broken and confused

they were pampered we were abused

And I'm lucky i know were beauty lies




As the moon lights up your heart

and the sun shines on your art

And there smile is a gun that they hide

and our spirits part the sea

and we fly above the trees

as the civil servants stare into the sky 




and there broken and confused

they were pampered we were abused

And I'm lucky i know were beauty lies

i bought a Strat today... I'm high

From the feel of the baby in my arms

And I'm not letting her go 

She makes me  high… so high 







 I feel the spirit of jimmy

He blew my mind again

And no ones sitting in for him

No ones sitting in for him

we know why, he gets us so high

 

Chorus

No ones sitting in for Jimmy

No one can sit in for Hendrix

No ones sitting in, for Jimmy Hendrix

No ones sitting in for Jimmy

No one can sit in for Hendrix

No ones sitting in, for Jimmy Hendrix

No ones sitting in

 

Jimmy's head was carved in the body of my  guitar

 Mount rock mores  star along with buddy and muddy  

, they get high…..  so high

 

 Sitting in a broken window

Celebrating broken dreams 

A little girl stairs curling her hair 

  Eating her chochlate ice cream

 

A crowd of people

walked on by

Stopped stared,  Nobody cared

about there mundane lives…. no more suicides…..jimmy was back……………everyone said

jimmy had risen from the dead…. he's lying on  bed stepped into the matrix and said 

                                   

Chorus

No ones sitting in for Jimmy

No one can sit in for Hendrix

No ones sitting in, for Jimmy Hendrix

No ones sitting in for Jimmy

No one can sit in for Hendrix

No ones sitting in, for Jimmy Hendrix

No ones sitting in




 Sitting on the window sill chillin

Or hanging off the knob of my bedroom door

A crowd of people turned his way

said hay Jim you here to stay  

he said i love to turn you on 

I'd love to turn you on 

YEA…….Im here to stay... to get you high… 

SO HIGH… SO HIGH...

No ones sitting in for Jimmy

No one can sit in for Hendrix

No ones sitting in, for Jimmy Hendrix

No ones sitting in for Jimmy

No one can sit in for Hendrix

No ones sitting in, for Jimmy Hendrix

No ones sitting in

 





































 

Went to sleep,had a dream,

Hendrix isn't dead, no he isn't dead

"AND IT CHANGES YOU"

when the light goes off the real lights come on

when the light goes off the real lights come on

and it changes you

and you feel all that  love in side

and you feel all that  love in side

it changes you 




the way you move 

the decisions you make

the friends you keep

you look beyond everything you thought was good

and it changes you




realizing that life is just  a game

and no-one has the answers

and so many voices lied

and it changes you




when the light goes off the real lights come on

when the light goes off the real lights come on

and it changes you

and you feel all that  love in side

and you feel all that  love in side

it changes you 



















it changes you 

rearranges you

and you look beyond what you thought was good

cause nothing is what it appears

and heaven may be right here 

cause religion makes no sense

cause you see beyond the book of love

and no one means what they say

to most life is just 

YOU KNOW I’M JUST NOT SURE 

and no-one has the answers

and so many voices lied

when the light goes off the real lights come on

and it changes you

and you feel all that  love in side

and it changes you and it changes you and it changes you

  • EPIC LOVE POEM4:33

THE PHOTOGRAPHER




THE MICROPHONE

She stood there alone tall thin intimidating

Few approached her

Though most wanted to meet her

Talk to her as she was the best lisner in the room

Quiet non-assuming yet born with one purpose

 deliver a messenger's word

Fanning themselves in this Louisiana heat in Lost AngeLess

Ten thousand steps from un-Holy -Wood

The beat of dry cow hyde echoed in the moon lit streets

Yet no one was listening as the attention was

On what secrets she might tell

Delivering art through her silver mouth

Poetic verse played solitaire with her

everyone was infatuated with this heartless entertainer

no one could get too close lest you'll hear her scream

angels with dirty faces 1 by 1 stood naked before her

painting images that dripped down the walls

seeping into the boards beneath my soles into my Soul

hiding behind my glass wall of ignorance

emotion tattooed by wisdom's roots

that broke through the dry wooden floor

branches stretched through the ceiling reaching for stars

in this tiny room that shook from quaking hearts

story evaporated into space finding home

through an open door

wordsmiths pounding rusty thoughts of a shared common thread 

 portraying story evolving from a walk down a broken glass road

a hailstorm of love

with eyes inside out

chasing their fix

verse running through their veins

in this temple of hope and peace


known as the world stage

“NO ONES SITTING IN”




A special day

you fell to earth

you flew away

a tender birth



the stars above

invited you

Darkness bellow

excited you




A Falling star

with ravens wings

you willed this stone

to fly and sing




you worshipped beauty

and shades of spring

the queen of hearts

that lost her king




you rise you rise above the wall

see the disguise ,behind it all

The disguise of wright

That's in the wrong

the face of truth

your favorite song

the joker writes

with poets plumb 

you feel cramped

 in the empty room




you worshipped beauty

and shades of spring

the queen of hearts

that lost her king

A special day

you fell to earth

you flew away

a tender birth

the stars above

invited you

Darkness bellow

excited you

you worshipped beauty

and shades of spring

the queen of hearts

that lost her king


This Old Guitar


I'm down on my luck but it's looking up

Hungry and thirsty with an empty cup

Life isn't easy but I love to live

I ain’t got much money but I love to give

I'm not a minister but I love to preach

Never liked school but I love to teach

Not a great singer but I love to sing

And I'll write a song about anything


And the years they gone by me

And it's too late to go back again

All my ghosts are behind me

Creeping up now and then

Playing this old guitar makes me a happy man

Playing this old guitar makes me a happy man


Now I'm not a doctor but I love to heal

And I’m not psychic but so much I feel

Don't go to church but God's in my heart

And I don't know much about art

Now I'm not a poet but I love to write

And I'm a lover though sometimes I fight

Love the ocean but rarely swim

I’m not brave but I'll go out on a limb


And the years they gone by me

And it's too late to go back again

All my ghosts are behind me

Creeping up now and then

Playing this old guitar makes me a happy man

Playing this old guitar


And the years they gone by me

And it's too late to go back again

All my ghosts are behind me

Creeping up now and then

Playing this old guitar makes me a happy man

Playing this old guitar


"Welcome to my story"


And when the wind came
I let it all go 
I sang this song
From the wolf to to sparrow 
She flew away 
I took the low road 
You know the one 
long and narrow

She picked the sky 
and then she flew
Some how 
the sparrow she  new

She was high 
But I fell
 It's me that has a 
story to tell

2x

I'm the wolf 
Your the sparrow
this is my story 
Listen to my story


I'm the wolf
That learned to fly
It took forever
Do you know why
I was stubborn 
did it my way
You can't Imagine
The mistakes along the byway

I got the scares
I got the wounds
That gave me the melody 
And gave me the tunes


I'm the wolf 
Your the sparrow
this is my story 
Welcome to my story


Do what i love 
Love what i do 
And everyday 
Is something new 
I live to love 
And love to live 
I realize that 
Life is such a gift 

I'm the wolf 
Your the sparrow
this is my story 
Listen to my story 

  • CABLES AND CHAINS2:52

Cowboy stopped his walk to roll in the grass 

Drink from a bubbling brook 

While fifty people die 

Security shattered by a horrifying act of  terror

Another hatless crime 

The cities darkest day




Black just got blacker

in the name of 

Another and another and another angry god

The road to darkness just got wider 

Time to reflect on respect

Does love and faith

Have a bullet named death 

Your gods wrong my gods right 

I'm parked in the dark

With a heart full of light

That tells me too pull a trigger

Pull a pin 

Blow my self up

Cause I'm so enlightened

And rich with in 

Twisted thoughts

A window to hell

This is were the side walk ends 

He carries his heart in a suitcase bomb

The road taken by an enlightened  Murderer 

A nightmare is his dream

There is another ski

Cause he's not part of mine 

He bleeds in a messy room

And his wife has his poems 

Written on her dungeons ceiling 

There fire burns into the night

The words funeral delight 

Burned into there crocodile skin

There poetry hand book

Glorifying death

A romance with hate

This seeker of a warped truth

Drinks from a poison well

A grave digger for god 

How angelic how poetic 

With bats in there eyes they fly

Down down down

This poisoned  tree 

With roots that reach Hell's Kitchen it's summer

But he wears mittens 




Pomegranate means grenade 

In some places

I'm brave but I'm still afraid 

That society is a mess hall

That just got messier 

And even the air has no empathy 

It's just so tiered 

Of sling shots and broken glass 

Sinners that go to mass 

They dance with the devil

How long we've been fooled

It's time to quit school

Throw away the books 

We've been chained to other people's ideas 

There is just to much information in the ear 

There has always been seven days in a week 

Some choose seven devils 

Yellow rain 

There is no name yet 

For what society has became

I can't say become 

The Internet has made even the young numb 

It's an instruction manual for the beast 

That feeds the darkness 

There is a train that goes to hell

They ride the rail with there bible 

gods name changing 

Like seasons 

They kill for no good reason




It all comes back to choice 

I write these poems 

Cause it's my voice 

My silent thoughts

A portrait in time

That I scribble 

I can't spell so I don't play scrabble 

I guess I created my own language 

One that try's to figure out 

What this subway ride is all about 

Earth took on earth

What's anything worth

Life 

What was once incomprehensible 

Is now a fairy tale for nuns and priests 

A Sunday sermon

A prologue to a horror book

The grave today is not a quite place 

What happen to live and love 

I'm not sure if there is a remedy 

In it sure if we will ever find peace

Im sure it's a man made disease 

I'm sure when they serve hate on a plate from birth 

I ask what's that life worth

I'm sure there are others that think like me 

While others wander in a circle 

To be ort not to be

  • we choose2:07

"Muhammad Ali"

The black poet of white light

Came from the promised land

Walked alone this king from the holy land

Wore a costume of a heavyweight champ

To gain our respect

This philosopher writer fighter

Wandering lonely as a cloud

This articulate black knight

His vigilant voice echoing funeral blues

Thousand years of pain

White light shooting from every vein

Healing love that was lost

In the fields of the black slaves dreams

The seeker of truth loved by the youth

Walked the walk

Talked the talk

This eagle for civil rights

In the days when even black was white

And the sidewalk never had an end

He stayed his course

Lost his title went to jail

Dodging a hailstorm of bullets

Knowing very well Vietnam was hell

A joke, why kill a man you don't even know

He had a much bigger fight here at home

Where they used the word Nigger while pulling a trigger

Holding a bible and a smile that Ali could see for miles

Any ignorant bastard knew these Nazis were vile

I was embarrassed to be white

These white supremacist Anglo Saxon sinners dressed in their Sunday best

Black men like him hung from a limb cause of the color of their skin

Couldn't sit in the front of a bus

Drink water from the fountain of white

Who the fuck could turned wrong into white

These church goers rules and laws written by midgets and fools

He could have taken the road paved in gold, it was there

He sacrificed his crown his career his cup overflowing with tears

He was the king of all kings

Fought in a rusty ring

Wore a prophets crown of thorns

Bleeding for every slave

On his hands and knees paving the way

The endless sidewalk

He walked alone

His voice was his weapon

To fight for equality and peace

His message rang out

There would be another sky

This beautiful black raven

With eagles wings would fly alone

Cassius Clay clowned around

While pounding ignorance into the ground

Knocking out foolish white prejudice in the first round

Buried that black stereotype

From a thousand years of white hype

Black was the color purple

Muhammad Ali came full circle

A miracle of satirical poetic truth

He had a romance with the press

Leading them like sheep

Rocking them to sleep

The mother of rap

With a message

From the moon the stars and the world

You can get away with wrong

The world was his stage

And he wasn’t afraid

He was lucky his nose

Was still on his face

Not a scratch or a scar

He let every bird out of the cage

With a smile of white light

And a message as black as an empty sky

This hero for every black man that died

For a lie and an ego

That painted white on black

The endless sidewalk was his path

He did the arithmetic but failed math

  • POEM FOR LENON2:42

And when the wind came 

I let it all go 

I sang this song

From the wolf to to sparrow 

She flew away 

I took the low road 

You know the one 

long and narrow

She picked the sky 

and then she flew

Some how 

the sparrow new

She was high 

But I fell

But it's me that has a 

story to tell




I'm the wolf a

Your the sparrow

this is my story 

Listen to my story




I'm the wolf

That learned to fly

It took forever

Do you know why




I was stubborn 

did it my way

You can't Imagine

The mistakes along the byway

I got the scares

I got the wounds

That gave me the melody 

And gave me the tunes




I'm the wolf 

Your the sparrow

this is my story 

Listen to my story




Do what i love 

Love what i do 

And everyday 

Is something new 

I live to love 

And love to live 

I realize that 

Life is such a gift  




I'm the wolf 

Your the sparrow

this is my story 

Listen to my story
