"We all have a stake in trying to keep this crusted layer of molten lava...floating out in Space...Oh well...I've got Faith...And the Sun's still shining...Take me to my happy place!"

Words come at you everyday; Poems are just a little more organized in what they have to say! Tuesday, May 19, 2009 Ok...Just have to send out another "Manly Poetry Man" Poem today...It is a beautiful day in H-town...Wishing All: Good Times On The Planet....Where ever you may be on this planet. This blank white canvas computer screen is calling me to bring...yet another one of life's simple slogans...to life...in Manly Poetry Words... Here Goes:

By the way...Poems: Get a bad rap...usually considered flowery, soft, artsy, etc. Maybe...some of that is true. But...put in the right context...Poems can get a point across with underlying stealth and quiet intelligence. Perhaps...even better than the average writings we see daily.This is Mr. Manly Poetry Man's Quest. To Boldly Go Where No Poetry Man has Gone Before and...Boldy Write Some New Poems...? Sometimes Poems need to have their energy harnessed and then put on display. With that I bring you:

Take Me To My Happy Place

Welcome to the World as we know it today...

No time to talk...Got Bills to Pay!

I will be in big trouble if there is a slight delay...

How did I come to be in all of this...Anyway?

We seem so fragile...So weak...We better not even arm ourselves with a slingshot...

Or else some big bully will come over and beat us up...then knock out all our snot...

I don't want to believe this current scenario is all we got...

However...I'm checking my own course for a new direction to plot.

Even though...most days I feel trapped like a mouse in a maze,

And I haven't done anything wrong...Yet, I still have to plead my case...

Things seem rocky and a bit on edge for those of us in the human race...

I can't even look at the headlines anymore ...Take me to my happy place!


News says we are in a big Recession...


Maybe...also headed for a Depression.


My heart says to me: "Keep On Truckin' "...


Get back up on that Horse...even if it's buckin'.


Folks around screaming: "The End is Near,"


Put me on the first Space Shuttle out'ta here!


Things can't be as bad as they appear...


Besides...Not much we can do anyways...I fear.


We may be on borrowed time...or still here by grace.


I plan to stay busy working, keep on living, and save face.


Don't understand how people lose it and go off on a wild craze,


Things' been crazy here before...Take me to my happy place!

It will all work out for the good...in time...I have no doubt...

I could certainly use some help... Maybe Congress can give me a "Bail-Out"?

Then I'll add my own Bonus to it...whether or not the masses shout...

So I can cover my own butt...which is afterall...what I care most about.

But...Let Not My Heart Be Troubled...I am a simple citizen...you know...

The ones that do our thinking would rather convert our dollar over to the euro...

And send us diving down in flames owing other Nations with our growing National debt...

But Nations that owe us never pay us...I don't get that..."What the heck?"

The heat is up...and the pressure cooker is turning red...

If it was only a bad morning...I'd pull the covers back over my head...

It has come down to where I could sure use a good hand..."Help me draw an Ace,"

One thin card could make or break me...Take me to my happy place!


Looking around...everything seems normal...on this planet we call Earth,


Time to take a break...Enjoy the moment...and each minute for all it's worth.


Nobody has all the answers...although a few wouldn't hurt a bit...


After all...We're in this for the long haul...What'ch you gon'na do...Quit?


Bet we can work it all out...just by coming together for the Cause,


Simple people...helping each other...no big speeches...or loud applause.


Together, us common folk can make solutions, and give our neighbors a helping hand,


It won't help us to get worried...Worry never helped increase the days of one man.


Some leaders sit and ponder...while another leader is ready to Nuke us gone without a trace.


We have options...We don't have to sit and wait for our leaders to re-review this case...


We all have a stake in trying to keep this crusted layer of molten lava...floating out in Space...


Oh well...I've got Faith...And the Sun's still shining...Take me to my happy place!

"It has come down to where I could sure use a good hand..."Help me draw an Ace,"  One thin card could make or break me...Take me to my happy place!"
