My Name Is Ralwus

Updated on October 14, 2010


My name is Ralwus.

Nope! I didn’t misspell it.

And I’m a lot like a lot,

But you can’t tell it!



I’m my own man,

I drive my own train.

I’ve done it all,

And there’s not much more to gain.



Full speed ahead.

Heap some coals on that fire.

We ain’t done yet,

And I have enough desire.



Give me the sun!

Who’s the one,

Who says,

It can’t be done?



Roll on! By the empty box cars,

And the shanties!

I need to wipe my eyes darling.

How about give me your panties?!



Is that surprise in your eyes?

Just wait till you know me.

You’ll be laughing so hard!

I’ll make you pee!


 

It was long ago,

I left the highway,

Better than Frank Sinatra,

Having it his way.


 

My main mode of transport,

Is the written word, the verse.

I tell it like it is.

I might just curse.



It’s all fun,

Unless my butt’s in a rut.

There’s many that say,

I’m a clear-cut nut.



But I write the songs,

Don’t care about a nay-sayer,

I’ll write what I please.

I ain’t running for Mayor.



But I push a lot of buttons,

That I know are right.

I’m a lover not a fighter,

But I know how to fight.



Shovel the coal.

Let's get down the tracks.

We’ve had enough of the world,

Breaking our backs.



There's a load of manure,

Waiting ahead.

I’ll get all I can get,

Watch the manure I spread!



Shovel that coal!



Let’s get on with it!



I’m laughing and loving,



                                         And still full of




                                                                            SOUL-man!






Micky Dee



A couple of us thought we might have a big old "Ralwus Party" so we  called about all of Ralwus' friends.


50 Caliber's computer was down so I had to write him a letter.

I knew it would get there in plenty of time.


Of course 50 Caliber said he'd ride his motorcycle out there. That started a bunch of others to want to ride a special machine out there too.

50 put new pipes on his bike though. His hearing ain't what it used to be.


Wayne Brown

Wayne Brown jumped right on that and got his machine tuned up.


Wayne Brown's new bike is really different from his older bike.


Yep! This bike belongs to  saddlerider.

Seems that dude is always compensating!


Ralwus' bike!

Ralwus was thinking about selling his bike as it was getting hard to tune.


Yep! This is Micky's bike.

It was custom made to go as far as the gas held out.


This was the most popular bike with most of the guys.

But our guys are truly patriotic!


Seemed everyone had a date but Micky Dee!


My bike is a one-seater anyway!


It was a great party until this guy showed up!


Yep! As you might have guessed it.

Things started getting out of hand!


The cops come in and it's all over now!


I wasn't doing NOTHING!

I was taking pictures like I always do and this was the last I remember!



Another friend of Ralwus!
Another friend of Ralwus!
It was a rough crowd!
It was a rough crowd!

The lady fans of Ralwus are missing because there are just TOO many!

I'd wear my fingers to the bone putting all of the friends of Ralwus here.

So go over to where Ralwus is and you'll meet hundreds to thousands!


Just be careful! He's got a bunch of tricks!
Just be careful! He's got a bunch of tricks!

      What a nice tribute to Ralwus. I love the song Simple Man, its a great guideline for all men to follow! Just like Ralwus when men keep it simple, straight and to the point people see them as anything other than simple. Great tribute indeed and some after party.

      Wanted to go. Said I'd go. But had no dough.

      Googled a map and printed it out. May be the right address I don't really know. Skeptical at best so I'll rest.

      Wanted to go, said I'd go. Want to meet "the man" who is sick of what we don't know. But alas still no dough. So I missed out on the best of times and friends who are "rich" in the written word of the best there is on earth. Friendship. Best to all especially our beloved 'ralwus.'

You would have like that body search though! It's better you came to the after-party! You know how Ralwus , Wayne Brown, Saddlerider, zzron, ect., an nauseum - you know how these wild men are. We needed some Carolina Muscle or something!!! You know I love you Petra!

      Just read a hub by you Micky

      You really are nuts!!

      But your hubs are so quirky

      They drag me out of my ruts.

      This one on ralwus

      Has got to be your best.

      But you've made me miss my bus

      And spill tea down my vest.

      Those pictures are hilarious

      And oh so funny

      Don't ever become serious

      Just carry on being Micky.

      Take care and God Bless.

      Another great hub brotherly Micky

      With sprightly words of poetry

      and trademark splattering of wonderful imagery

      accompanied by lovely tune of simplicity

      An impressive tribute to a man named Ralwus

      It seems a little odd and so want to say walrus

      So we thank you again Sir Micky man for delighting us

      And it's time I better befriend this Ralwus - I guess

      And my final thanks goes personally to thee

      for introducing me to another colourful hubbing personality

      Your brotherly scribes

      Micky Dee 6 years ago

      Yo Eiddwen!!! You wrote this beautiful piece here! Oh Man- I love it! Oh my Dear! I must break from fun to say that, unfortunately I will get serious. My friends know it. I don't have much choice about what I write. This hub FELL on me yesterday. I did this all yesterday. I have two other hubs that rate over "60" in the "account". I have one I may publish today. I hate to take thunder away from this and Ralwus.

      I am LED to write what I write and whom I write about. I don't have choices. Sure- I can fight my "lead" but it's not wise.

      I will write a political hub soon. It will floor me. The aftermath of writing it and answering insults and real comments will drain me to the floor.

      I have no choice! The world is suffering. God's people - Christians, Muslims, Jews, Atheists- they ALL belong to God. And yes! Atheists are God's people too.

      There is a common ground that is accepted by my God almighty that includes ALL! Yes! Yes! Even Atheists keep that Golden Rule! And that is God's greatest LAW! There is no doubt! It cannot be debated. Every religion has that law. Until that law is upheld- we will elect lawyers to rule us. They swill say "I want smaller government, lower taxes." "I am a Washington outsider", they will boast! "It's time we sent those people in Washington a message!" They will say stuff like this until they believe it themselves. They are professional liars and their jobs are to create laws that are GOOD for the American people and YES, the entire planet. Their job also - to tear down, get around every law - for filthy lucre. Yes Ma'am. Unfortunately I will get serious. But- enough here! Let's party down at Ralwus' place! God bless you Eiddwen! And when I say God bless you - I don't mean that flippantly.

      I want God to bless you and Ralwus and...and...

      Right Freya Cesare! I'm sure Ralwus got something in his "chaser" or some smoke in his eyes and hit that dang "R" instead of the "W". They are close together. He may have been drinking a little tonic, just for a cold or something and - dang. He's stuck as a RALWUS now!

      That toilet bike is mine. I'll be the village idiot here. I am in real life.

      Freya! You did the "chicken dance" on my buttons?

      I'm coming right over to your place and I'll be doing the "chicken dance" and the "chicken strut" all over the buttons on your hubs!

      This was too funny, loved the tricked out rides. I like Dim find it hard to believe your not being chased down by the opposite sex. Unless your just not applying yourself. LOL :) Great hub
