Baggage

You can act all proper
You can try and hold it in
Stick your finger in the floodgates
But you’re never gonna win

when your baggage
weighs a ton
you can hide
but you can’t run
from the dude in the mirror
and all the things you done

You act like someone else
And pretend it’s all a show
But the pain in your marrow
Is only gonna grow

when your baggage
weighs a ton
you can hide
but you can’t run
from the dude in the mirror
and all the things you done

Time marches on
That river’s gonna flow
And you’re stuck in yourself
Everywhere you go

when your baggage
weighs a ton
you can hide
but you can’t run
from the dude in the mirror
and all the things you done

Graphic Stimulation (29)

Aunt Jane

There was a large woman from Payne
Who was seldom known to complain
About the shape of her hair
Or the size of her head…
Until she awoke one morning
And discovered her husband had fled.

The above was my first try at sketching a story-board graphic using the online program (appropriately named)PsykoPaint.

Nonsense Verse (05)

Anastasia_Easel-Card

The Perfect Pill

I don’t know,
But if I had
Some beans to sow,
I’d be grateful for
Those beans to grow.

But on the other hand,
If I were member of a band,
I’d wish to have a
Tiny flute to blow.

And what about you?
What would you do
If you had a magic wand,
Or a wishing pond?
Would the Nymph respond
To your request to
Put an end to snow?

And that’s when the Snowman said,
“Hey, wait a minute, do you want
to see me dead?”

To which you replied,
“Who gives a damn if
you live or die?”

“I do!” said the Shrew.
As he unbuckled and
Threw his shoe at you,
While smiling at the sky.

And upon seeing that,
Edward Lear did tip his hat,
And was heard to say,
From a place far away,
“I wish I’d thought of that!”

The above composed on the fly,
by my (9yo) daughter and I,
To help ease the pain in her head,
And replace her migraine instead
With some silly pie from the sky.
