Hear the Music

Yes, I have been writing epically bad poetry for a long time… This is an example from 2013.

Catch a Falling Star



Hear the Music (a love poem)


The singer sings his song,

And wants the world to sing along,

Though the world has gone all wrong,

And the darkness stays too long.


The singer warms and croons,

Under bright romantic moons,

And carries hopeful tunes,

To the listening dolts and loons.


Can a song bring truth to light?

Can it help us win the fight?

If you listen to Dean Martin version , it’s typical New Yorker pronounces t’s as d’s and it sounds like “Three Coins in a Foundan” . We were a lot smarter than our parent’s gave credit. I knew my mother would never be kissing Santa Claus either like in that Christmas song. Hell she never kissed anyone.

I may have been smarter than my parents were ready for, but I believed Jerry was in real life the same as he was in the movies. I saw the Nutty Professor and expected to invent a serum like that when I grew up, only without the jerk parts. I could be stupid as easily as I could be smart.
