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

It is in
The darkest hour
That the worst
Is over
And things can only improve
With this fresh cycle

Justitia’s Secret

JUSTITIA’S SECRET

A black and white world
Would be so much easier
But it just ain’t so.

 

Nonetheless Taoists
After pondering the Whole
Manage a balance.

Shoulder to shoulder
Side by side
Joy and sadness
Come and go with the tide

The Blessings Of Balance

THE BLESSINGS OF BALANCE

As above, so also so below
As within, so also so without

So blessed are we who toe the line
So blessed are we who won’t so do

So blessed are we who see it not at all
So blessed we simply for blessing’s sake

Out Of Balance

OUT OF BALANCE

Intellect needs heart
Without care its achievements
Only end in tears

Crane At Sunset

 

POISE

Balanced on one leg
Motionless, a crane inhales
The gold of sunset

What My Teacher Taught Me

WHAT MY TEACHER TAUGHT ME

Each relationship
Calls forth both love and power
A balancing trick

The Whole Truth

THE WHOLE TRUTH

Stand shameless, erect
Lopsided, life without taint
Cherish each blemish

Seed words: “Blemish”, “Erect”, “Lopsided”.

It’s ages since I tried one of these. So much to do; so little time. Thank God for parallel universes. 🙂
