Nothing

NOTHING

We shall have nothing
Until we learn to share it
With our sleeping selves

Back To the Track, Jack

BACK TO THE TRACK, JACK

For easy balance
No need to go to extremes
Walk a wide tightrope

CHOO CHOO CH’BOOGIE – Vaughn Horton, Denver Darling, and Milt Gabler.

Headin’ for the station with a pack on my back
I’m tired of transportation in the back of a hack
I love to hear the rhythm of the clickety-clack
And hear the lonesome whistle, see the smoke from the stack
And pal around with democratic fellas named Mac
So take me right back to the track, Jack

Choo-choo, choo-choo ch’boogie
Woo-woo, woo-woo ch’boogie
Choo-choo, choo-choo ch’boogie
Take me right back to the track, Jack

You reach your destination, but alas and alack
You need some compensation to get back in the black
You take a morning paper from the top of the stack
And read the situations from the front to the back
The only job that’s open needs a man with a knack
So put it right back in the rack, Jack

Choo-choo, choo-choo ch’boogie
Woo-woo, woo-woo ch’boogie
Choo-choo, choo-choo ch’boogie
Take me right back to the track, Jack

Gonna settle down by the railroad track
Live the life of Riley in the beaten down shack
So when I hear a whistle, I can peep through the crack
And watch the train a-rollin’ when it’s ballin’ the jack
Well, I just love the rhythm of the clickety-clack
So take me right back to the track, Jack

Choo-choo, choo-choo ch’boogie
Woo-woo, woo-woo ch’boogie
Choo-choo, choo-choo ch’boogie
Take me right back to the track, Jack

Take me right back to the track, Jack

Off The Map

OFF THE MAP

Searching for true love?
Perhaps out there’s not the best
Place to go looking

I Grok A Wrongness: Senryu

I GROK A WRONGNESS

You grok a wrongness?
Complain not about others
Scan your own shadow

Onlooker

ONLOOKER

Fingers crossed in hopes
Stillness and patience produce
Beauty and magic

Breath Of Life

BREATH OF LIFE

To hell distancing!
Worth to take any risk to
Touch noses with you

The Sacred Tree

THE SACRED TREE

Yew and I and you
Express what’s to be expressed
This open secret

Really Bad News: Senryu

REALLY BAD NEWS

We are in the grip
Of a dangerous virus
It’s not Covid though

The Last Word: Senryu

THE LAST WORD

You have opinions
God forfend I should try to
Confuse you with facts

The One Question: Senryu

THE ONE QUESTION

Now is the question
That has us stumped till we see
Now is the answer
