Down And Out For Christmas!

Updated on December 8, 2010

Pray For A New Beginning

Try to ensure,

             For just a simple toy,

All the year around,

              For every girl and boy.

Pray for a New Beginning,

               And what may come to light,

But remember on the battle-field,

               There's seldom a silent night.

Tend to the meek and weak.

               Warm their bodies and their souls.

Go ahead and make a toast,

               And let the good times roll.

But try to raise your brother up,

               Before the good times pass.

Try to make it possible,

               For all to raise a glass.


Down And Out For Christmas

It’s beginning to look like Christmas.

It’s the happiest time of year.

It’s a time of joy for everyone.

There’s a smile from ear to ear.

There’s a smile covering,

Every grimace on every face.

How I wish I could join them,

But I think I’ve lost my place.

I have often pondered,

How I’d spend this special day.

For I’ve had a growing testicle,

That keeps getting in the way.

My doctor says it’s Christmas Time,

For this over sized testicle to go.

And it appears that this testicle,

Will never cease to grow.

I’m getting it downsized for Christmas,

And Lord I hope it heals.

In the meantime I’ve been tempted,

To buy “it” a set of wheels.

I thought of maybe wearing a sling,

Or putting it in a pack.

But I’ve been a bit concerned,

That it could break this Grinch's back.

Most people look so happy,

With broad smiles from ears to ears.

But, I’ve had to make an athletic supporter,

Out of two different sized brassieres.

One size cup is a 16 A,

The other is a 42 D.

I have to fish around a lot,

Whenever I want to pee.

I will readily confess,

My Yule log is but a twig,

But that one testy testicle,

Is excruciatingly big.

The “Crown Jewel” is too bulky,

And heavy to carry around.

So I’ll be getting a new snow globe,

When Santa comes to town.

There may be discomfort,

But it needs to happen soon.

For no-one needs a testicle,

That can be seen from the moon.

It’s during this festive occasion,

When so many join in celebration,

That my number came up,

To have this testicular operation.

I apologize for the TMI,

And in so many rhymes.

But I decided to lop the pair of them off,

And install a set of chimes.

Perhaps if things work out,

I can run and jump around.

Instead of having my ornament,

Dragging on the frozen ground.

Instead of having a beach ball

That continuously forever swells,

Every Christmas from now on,

I would have my own Jingle bells.

So put some holly on my Wally,

And hang some mistletoe,

Take a little ribbon,

And tie a little bow.

I’ll walk bowlegged into Christmas,

And folks will laugh as I turn and leave.

I guess I’ll be down and out for Christmas,

But I may be erect for New Years Eve.

This hub was written months ago and explains the "problem". 

But the problem has grown.

My BrotherMan 50 Caliber and I wrote a couple poems together through some emails - so - this was - in part - inspired by my Brother Vet 50 Caliber.

      What are these problems with too much government is this right wing worried about?

      Why don't you just sell the world to the highest bidder? A lot of our cities are sold to foreigners who may be terrorists. Houston has a lot of Saudis.

      Deregulate. Sell our weapons, planes, resources, beaches, Mountain tops to anybody with money. Giving JUST rich people all the power is- sorry - I can't think of a word appropriate.

      Pretty words Kim. James has a lot but they will never help a poor man. This downsizing the government - you and James are no undoubtedly concerned with so many people going to prison and having their lives interrupted by being imprisoned for smoking some grass. I bet you two are torn up about it. I bet you're all torn up about jobs being shipped overseas. It's the people with the money who move them.

      These pigs at the trough need regulating. Every time something is "deregulated" it's for big business to steal more, pollute more, etc. When you say "less government" I know what you mean. It is NEVER for the common man.

      You keep electing lawyers to run the government. They make laws for the rich. Ask Alan Dershowitz what it takes to be "innocent" in a court of law.

      I hope to God there are more regulations on selling arms like the M-16s made in America that killed hundreds of thousands in East Timor! The murdering soldiers that led this were trained in the USA.

      I could give you a lot of facts but you, James, and the republican party are not interested in facts to help the common man and victim. Both of the "parties" get their information from Foxx news or one of the other media giants who squelch real news for the victims of the world.

      I'll stop here. Neither of you will do the research to help the weak. But you might write wonderful essays about the right wing money. Who is being helped by supporting money?

      America, home of the free, is imprisoned more than any country on Earth - yet you and James have no problem with the wealthy buying their way out of on crime after the other. That is what supporting the rich does. It just encourages cheating, greed, white collar crime, gated communities for everyone but the harshest for the poor.

      Name calling? I'll take you through my hubs where I've been called lazy, liar, coward, among a few.

      Less government. Let's get into the "way back machine" and study the deregulating of the savings and loans like the one GW's brother was a part of. Where they stole, fleeced and didn't get a spanking. Fast-forward to the banking crap today.

      Less government for the rich. That's your motto. Not- less imprisonment for the poor. Less imprisonment for the rich is your flag.

      There is not enough room at the top for everybody to steal like the rich.

      You want less government for the rich!

      Wow, Micky. You have some strong feelings about all this. I don't typically comment on politics or religion, for just that reason. I am entitled to my opinions, but I find that when I express them, I am subjected to insults. It's not necessary. It is quite possible to agree to disagree, and have an intelligent discussion without all the ranting that goes on. I look for the kernels of truth in others' opinions. For example, it does seem unfair that so few have so much and so many have little. However, life is unfair, so that's exactly as it should be. If there were a law that says life has to always be fair for everyone, then I would be outraged. Just because someone has a bigger piece of the pie than I have, doesn't mean I'm entitled to it. On the other hand, if you were to write a hub that presented some facts about wealth distribution, how that distribution came to be, and some suggestions about real action steps that I can take to help resolve the perceived problem, I could work with that. I don't believe it is the proper role of government to provide for people or to over regulate. That is why I would reduce the size of the government. The small part of government left could spend an efficient amount of time investigating wealth distribution and identify what steps if any need to be taken to correct any real problems identified in how wealth is distributed without interfering with a citizen's right to pursue wealth using legal and ethical means and with a mind toward the constitution that is based on freedom and equality for all, and does not support the notion of a ruling class of royalty who are privileged by virtue of their birth into a royal family rather than by their own efforts and contributions. By focusing on areas of agreement and agreeing to disagree, we can get to some much needed solutions. Insults and name calling hinder this process. Let's get past it. kimh039 in 2012!

      I don't mean to be insulting. I want harmony.

      But please! These political farces, outright lies, that we have are ridiculous.

      What's the percentages of the land and ownership by the rich? I don't want to keep up with the figures as they get worse every day.

      Isn't it like a couple percent own 97% of America?

      How are BOTH parties NOT going to appease THE MONEY?

      What part of the world is not "owned"? Maybe, just maybe, these "owners" are stupid and greedy. Just maybe.

      Kim- lawyers are terrible at running this country. They are disgusting. Lawyers are terrible at running the courts! Getting rid of government James' way would be to perpetuate WAR! It would be to perpetuate business as usual. If you like business as usual you may as well be with James. These businesses that you and James support are murderers and slave drivers. It's business as usual. Business wants to get rid of regulations for THEMSELVES. That's just the same old rhetoric. Meanwhile neither of you or your party that you align yourself with think it's fine to have more people in prison than any country in the world and this is supposed to be the Land of the Free! You, James, and your political alignment will NEVER care about the wrongly accused and the wrongly imprisoned or the wrongly put to death. It's business as usual. I'm sorry about your political affiliation. Big business sucks and that's what your party represents. Liberal this or that when someone disagrees with the millions of people dying and suffering. Well yippy for big business! You're for a few owning the world. well yippy. Meanwhile all of the people everywhere are losing their land, livelihoods, and lives. Make no mistake. The policies that your party supports - supports the rich. Well I ain't for the selfish. This country is in the mess it is because of your Rothschilds, Rockefellers, etc. The demise of textiles can be traced to Reagan and freaks like Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Kline, etc. There are mills closed right here around my block but YOUR business that you and James protect and support take the job all around the world to sweat shops. Shame is what your party is. Take your party affiliation, republican, and take the other, democrat, and sail on to fantasy land. But you are only helping the rich. Shame! If you did any research out of your party you would have some relevant knowledge. But I don't need James to tell me about Jesus. Neither you or James have a clue.

      You give a whole new meaning to multi-tasking!

      My deepest sympathy for you and your condition Micky Dee, but I'm with James politically. Although I have to agree that we need to get the lawyers out of politics and out of executive boardrooms too. They belong in the court room! If it were up to me.....which theoretically it is..... 90% of government would be eliminated....and all the court rooms too. Vote for kimh039 in 2012.... and Micky Dee for secretary of transportation and war. Happy holidays, Micky.

      "Pray for a New Beginning,

      And what may come to light,

      But remember on the battle-field,

      There's seldom a silent night."

      This line in your poem reminded me of our soldiers who are still in war. I wonder how they and their families felt during this Christmas season. It's quite a big sacrifice on their part. I just hope and pray for their safety.

      This is another beautiful poetry. I like your photos and video, too. Advance Merry Christmas! God bless you and your family.

Juz' funning w/ ya' MD...Always enjoy your peculiar wit and humor...I didn't know at what point to laugh at the unusual problem you were having (that juz' keeps hanging around...) or to scream in pain from juz' hearin' terms like: "beachball" and "forever swells". Ow...Hope the procedure goes well. I'll say a prayer for good healing...juz' as soon as I can figure out the best way to get the prayer said. At least you can say for now...that you are very "well-rounded". more jokes...I'll stop now.

      Yo James. I know what socialism and capitalism and most of the isms are about. Say what you want. Put some spin on it. Color it any color but Jesus healed the sick. He charged not ONE DIME! Jesus fed the hungry. Jesus did not charge one dime. Jesus lifted up the week and the meek. I see most of capitalists at the upper end owning ALL of America, and a big slice of the world. I see a small percent validating the poor just to scare the heck out of the middle class that is shrinking. A lot of this capitalistic nonsense rewards models who are not good models, ball players, lying lawyers who keep screwing up the injustice system. I see a republican party that cares only for the rich. I see a republican party that hates the poor and people who do the real work. I see a republican party that has leaders who lie about serving God and show it in their actions.

      I am a common man. I am a Vet. I don't need a republican or democrat to tell me that this CAPITALISM in the United States is nothing more than Communistic Socialism for the wealthy.

      But you have support. The thugs from the republicans come by to educate me anyway. Well there is never going to be a just ruler to come out of Harvard or Yale. There will never be a true leader that is a lawyer.

      You and your friends can write me down as crazy as hell but I'd rather be a man freezing and dying on the street than be the pretending actors that pretend that this PYRAMID SCHEME called America is hardly more than a master/slave caste system.

      But you have all the support you need. Most folks going to college will want to buy tickets for sports, memorabilia, stickers for the car, vacations, whatever the heck it is - but - most Americans can't make ends meet. It takes two checks for a family. Maybe three.

      Why not take this bumper sticker money and buy a Veteran a home? Hypocrites! Rant about taxes. Most people ranting about high taxes and health-care for others HAVE MONEY! Have two homes!

      Yet this home of the free, you call it, has more people behind b1ars than any country! Liars! This country is full of liars.

      You can pull for Tommy Hilfrigger, Calvin Decline, and all the jackasses taking businesses out of the US and then OVER-CHARGING US citizens. You can yip yip hooray for the ding dang Cayman Island accounts while you talk about lazy people out of work.

      The republican party thinks it has the religious right in their pocket. The religious right thinks it has the republican party in their pocket. It's all a lie. Rich people will buy an abortion or whatever and whoever they want to further their selfishness.

      Both of these asinine parties are lies. There are no democrats after election.

      I'd like to see honesty in our leaders. I dislike a secret government. This is a "team" driven world. There are business teams, political teams, and to think for a second that there is not a secret government governing is pure folly. Right or wrong- I can't trust you, your party, or any other.

      Now let's all sing a carol! Merry Christmas!

      Hey, I've got one ball that's been all swelled up for a month or two. Haven't seen a doctor. I keep hoping it will go away.

      Your poem is excellent! Your peotic skills are in full bloom.

      Of course, I don't agree with some parts of your message. Your profile page says Jesus was a Communist, which is not true. Jesus told you and me to feed the hungry, give water to the thirsty, clothe the naked, visit those in prison and hospitals; AND tell them the Good News. He never told us to give our money to Caesar and let Caesar do these jobs for us, because Caesar is corrupt and more important: Caesar will not tell the needy the Good News—which they need even more so. This is commonly misunderstood by lefties. Communism has no room for God whatsoever. All Communists regimes have been officially Atheist because in Marxism God is an obstacle that must be removed for the State to have maximum power to do the job for the job that you and me and supposed to be doing. :D

      I can't stop laughing.This is hilariouely funny.The cartoons are the best and all so true.I hope you get along good with that support.They should 'erect' a statue of you and engrave your name with the quote," A great poet" because you are.This is one of your best.God bless.

      Love and Peace

      The poem was hilarious and the cartoons had me laughing just as hard. I love how you put a miserable truth out here in such a way that I can find humor in it.

      What balls...this is the best of the best. It so well describes our national disgrace with laughter. Yes, "for no one needs a testicle that can be seen from the moon". I am saluting you with my own private standing ovation. The best irreverent truth I've seen.

      This is a very funny hub... great poetry... great caricatures. Because I’ve recognized between the lines seriousness and great concern, neatly covered with Micky-Dee-humor, I quickly ran over to read Testing Testicles Batman! The State of the Onion! With The Squirrel Nut Zippers! Mickey, you are amazing... always cheerful and positive.... and funny... Not this or that or even it will break your strong spirit. You will be in my prayers, and you know God will always bless you with all you need to be Micky Dee. A big bag of hugs from me to you.

      excellent! Except for the actual surgery part! I was pondering the removal of my breast (in '06)and then I saw some conjoined twins on Oprah. They were 2 when they each lost a hip and leg, but they came crawling out with big smiles on their faces! I figured if they could lose that much and be happy, then I could lose a breast. So on Valentine's Day (the day of LOVE and romance!) I lost a major part of my womanhood. I knew that if years went by and I regretted having the surgery, I'd still be o.K., but if years went by and I found I regretted NOT having the surgery, then I would surely be in a tough place. I survived without a minute of grief and you can, too! Determine in your mind, it's what you need and what you want and you'll be good. I'll be praying for you! love you!!

      Wow, what a fun surprise this hub turned out to be. Very funny, Micky-man. I dedicate this ditty to you:

      If you're going to do reconstruction,

      Think first about the outcome there, my son.

      Make both your testicles much, much smaller,

      The rest will look larger by comparison. :)

      Hopefully your surgery will end the need for that bra size! Funny bit but wishing you swift healing and happy biking. That is certainly a great collection of political cartoons! Take care, Micky!

      I know of a few "good men" who should grow some testicles and be half as brave as you and your brother 50 Caliber is.

      It is just wishful thinking in my part and it will never happen, but it is on my Christmas list nevertheless.

      Christmas sans Christ, the greedy and covetousness Grow! I'll pass, the loudest gas!

      Reaching and grabbing most folks go,

      Jabbing each other with a sharp elbow,

      Cleaning off the shelves,

      All for them selves,

      Good will toward men?,

      Back it up try to sell me again,

      Ouch, you punched me on the chin,

      Over the last teddy bear, they’ll stock again!

      Mine was meant for an orphan kid,

      Any idea what you just did?,

      You grabbed it from me,

      Then ran down the isle with glee,

      Looking over your shoulder in victory,

      Lord knows exactly what you done to me,

      You know not what you done to him I’ll pray,

      You’ll be explaining it on judgment day.

      Peace, Scrooge, 50
