Figure It Out

We need to figure it out, yes it’s true

Figure it out, meaning you

For today, for our health

Figure it out, by yourself

Tired of begging, giving nudges

Instead of dinners, we’re doing lunches

Sharing drinks by the stars

We go instead, to coffee bars

We need to figure out meaning you

Nobody is waiting for what we do, 

meaning you

When we met, I did defer

To your indifference and your allure

Who wouldn’t want to have a dream

Having you in my scene

But then we figured, meaning me

There better places to be

Stuck waiting around for us

Meaning for you to hop on the bus

So figure it out, it’s all you

Figure it out, so we’re cool

Being a friend, not a fool

Figure it out, meaning you


Why the anxiety?

Why the mental itch

Why do I worry when the doctor did the stitch

Where I came from a man of older rings

When he had me was when he thought of other things

Long past the due date at the time of conception

When I dropped there wasn’t a reception

He was on a journey that landed on a tarmac

Of a family that had started their own pack

This is the story that then turned hazy

Now my parents cannot gaze upon me

One left this earth quite a long time ago

Leaving the earth when I was 10 years old

The other is on another destination

When minds are no longer a realization

Make peace with your time and your thoughts

Make war when urgency calls

Demand to know more than you imagine

Speak with heart and move with passion

When your plane leaves the runway

Leave nothing between you and a sun ray


The timing isn’t quite enough

The hair is disheveled, the look a little rough

Something isn’t up to snuff

Maybe it’s just a little hiccup

Or maybe it’s a sign of the way

You found out that something had gone astray

Maybe you were flagged for too much holding

Onto the past that wasn’t rewarding

Been to the place where you’ve been before

Close one door and open one more

But careful where you walk and how you step

Keep the knees high in case of some dreck

Cause the door that you open could be to a space

Where there was heaven and hell took its place

Or maybe it was a version of a blue room with a lock

Where you have time to hear every tick tock


It isn’t just the message but the energy it gives


It’s not the muscle but the flick of the wrist


It isn’t just the idea but the thought at the time


The timing isn’t right and sometimes that is fine

No more

You don’t come around here no more

That allure you felt became unsure

Or didn’t have the spirit to endure

You don’t come around no more

Once you clicked your heels and had some fight

Someone took your soul until you had no bite

Somewhere you looked left when there was a right

The shadow you left was a ghost without sheen

It may of been ghoulish but the sheet wasn’t clean

It became musty like the smell of the wharf

And just as fishy when the tale began to morph

Into a sequence where the chapter once had been

What seemed like a loss then turned into a win

Maybe it is true when they take one day

At a time it’s a deep breath then all is fine

But you don’t come through that door

You never really did but the illusion meant more


Window to the soul

Briefly but be seen

Your island is private so I breath the air that’s free

Playing by the rules

Wishes that come true

For that you ask for that I wish for you

The story makes one curious

Guessing what is serious

And it is meant to show

The hand or the tears

On a pillow

Dew on a willow

As the ray of sunshine 

Elicits the glow of a life

We get the chance on what’s wrong or right

We play the cards that are dealt to our lap

We choose to jeer or whether to clap

The air that we breath

Is through the crack of a window

Gasping ‘cause the speeds too heavy

Let’s tone it down till we both are ready

And then we’ll look in the rear view

Never Gave Up

I never gave up, no I never gave in. no I never conceded we wouldn’t be a thing

When I didn’t come by anymore it wasn’t the whole deal

If I didn’t try to submit a glance to steal

I made a pact that one day you’d be wanting

Something else besides the flirts you were flaunting

But I never submitted that I quit

I never gave a notice choosing to evict

Moved to the slow lane cause my senses were racing

And I knew there was no time to do the chasing

The signs on the street said to take it a step slower

An accident was my future if  I stretched things moreover

So don’t think for a second that I jumped off the boat

Knowing I would drown I chose instead to float

Until the current pushed you into my scope

Or rendering a need to use every type of trope

Lady Gray

She has markings like a tiger
But she moves like a jaguar
Knowing her land like a purveyor
Sensing victims with her radar

She’s not afraid to be quiet
But her character is not silent
There is not a safe haven
She has the knowledge of a maven

Her hair is the stuff of legend
Lives in my head like a surgeon
She’s plays victim to no one
She’s business till she has fun

She can cut the rug with no peer
Embarass' prime steppers with no fear
She captures darkness with her light
The words she chooses are all right

She has proportions of a goddess
Her propositions are all modest
She can make you feel important
But her whim decides your fortune

If you understand the deal
She’ll open up on what she feels
Don’t protrude in her path
Or you’ll be her aftermath

Jay Feely

Jay Feely
kicked the football freely
found out the white guys got an easy way dealy

Jay Feely
works at Fox Sunday
talking kicking that away
telling the peeps anecdotal throwaway

Jay Feely
Played a round of 18
Despite the CoVid-19
With President 45
Who likes to freely lie

Truly was a round and orange has some game
Orange had turned a blind eye to the Yanks
Said the work came first and that it was to blame
Only to play with Feely, talked values and shot blanks

Jay Feely said that family came up during their play
While younger brother Trump was reported to pass away
And where was POTUS but playing on the links
Talking about family with a player who played for kicks

Jay Feely talked with POTUS about a new form of politics
Pulling up mail boxes and throwing conspiracy in the mix
Saying that mail fraud would lose votes of the fellows
Then shanking a drive into the rough of Mark Meadows

But true to form, POTUS played out the string in earnest
And did a photo op with Feely with a thumbs up by his furnace
It truly was an honor to have witnessed this event
Jay Feely and POTUS playing golf while the country lays to rest.

Trump Announced

The Donald announced that Fauci was fraudulent
And that votes won’t go where they are sent
As was warned by an octogenerian
While chasing lies with a few Ukranian
Trump announced he won’t pay is respects
To John Lewis and all of his constituents
He doesn’t know about Black Lives Matters
He didn’t read up about Edmund Pettus
He doesn’t believe in reading material
His time was spent watching intramurals
When he was growing up watching others take tests
And claiming victories off the backs who were tasked
Trump announced that he calling the barracks
To rid the streets of who he thinks are derelicts
When it just Americans who are just bristling
Trump announced that he really isn’t listening
He rather tweet about how he’s been wronged
It’s his classic reprisal that goes on and on.
Like his false claim Biden will defund the police
Using fear like the honks from the geese
As they charge an onlooker to not cross their path
Protest and you’ll get smoke and tear gas
That’s what Trump announced in his weekly tirade
Proving again his leadership charade.

Tone Deaf

Kellyanne and others are on the phone
Telling POTUS to change his tone
Seeing the spike in his poll numbers
Going into the ground like his COVID embers
Telling the people he’ll eventually be right
While the pandemic deaths climb out of sight

He said that he’s come through with ventilators
He’s let the states be run by the governors
Like in Florida where there’s been no lead
Except the rise and death and the ability to breath

Now he says wearing a mask is patriotic
And he carries it around like a portable ball sac
And he’s changing his thinking on testing
Of course now he must be surely jesting

The cases and the deaths aren’t causing this spike
It’s the poll numbers from people out of spite
Knowing that this guy is an infiltrator
On so many values that this office held greater

Bring on your bandage and see what your made of
President Trump, you shown your true love
Playing on links and ignoring the people
Except the whites and a quite many creepers

Changing your tone isn’t what will be telling
It’s the lies and the untruths your yelling
Into the nation turned deaf to the hearing
How your tone has left what most had been fearing
