Are you a coward if you run?

Are you brave if you stay?

What are with these questions? (ANYWAYS)

You tear me from my work

And demand that I just play

Either way I think it gets done (ANYWAYS)

Absolutely automatic without thought

Instantly the passions what I fought

It isn’t about you or me (ANYWAYS)

The pain reminds me I’m alive

The drama inside of me drives

All forces collide, I subside (ANYWAYS)

Was something else supposed to happen?

Violence, bloodshed, or derogatory language?

Is that precisely what you’d expect? (ANYWAYS)

Pressing on, I Carrey on

Because the machine still runs

Do you hear the motor purr? (ANYWAYS)

Polly’s Ticks

Polly’s ticks are everywhere

Invading space & time

What can we, should we do with them

But suck a big, green lime

Light is shining bright above

It scorches left too long

If only we could dance

To that old, recurring song

Exterminate? That’s only hate

Or squish them one by one?

They’ll just come back a’ crawling

Looking for a little fun!

Then Sings My Sole

Sure, you can have a shoe without a sole
Not too smart…especially if you bowl
Strike out as many times as you wish
Just be careful with your mouth
Learn how to wash a dish
Should you have one life to spare
Might as well take a dare
Perhaps then life could be a fair affair
Instead of madness in your hair
If only the eye let would let
You’d roam around a bit
You’d stop sticking out your tongue
Then allow the in sole to console (count yourself among)
To happily cajole
And be joyful when you’re on a roll
Try not getting pinned in the gutter
Think of talking and don’t stutter

Just Sew


He came out of the blue to say

‘Don’t be a frayed, just sew!’

Although I had bias, he advised me to

Cut it at an angle

The right side and wrong side

Should be gathered in the grade it seams

He said I could always baste

Before making an edge-stitch or stay-stitch

The notches can help align the pattern

Some seam allowance is needed

Between the raw edge and the stitching line

There’s no sense in getting cross grain

When the grain line runs parallel to what’s selvaged

It may be necessary to clip

For flattening a curved seam

It doesn’t much matter whither using

Top-stitch or under-stitch or knit or woven fabric

You can always finish seams

With a back stitch

And sometimes, some elastic is helpful…

He came out of the blue to say

‘Don’t be a frayed, just sew!’

Have I been Bewitched by these Producers?

I am Legend Saving Face

Kicking and Screaming without a Dick

The Karate Kid said it was Showtime

My Step Brothers thought they were the Ladies Man

But those Bad Boys had Six degrees of Separation

The Other Guys were Men Seeking Women

As I Focus on Gemini Man

The Winter Passing becomes Stranger than Fiction

This Means War in the Wild Wild West

The Campaign becomes Old School

The Shark Tale was about Annie

A Night at the Roxbury

Turned out to be Land of the Lost

Where the Day takes You

Is the Pursuit of Happyness

While Zoolander was Drowning Mona

The Bad Boys for Life had a Concussion

Jay and Silent Bob skated in on Blades of Glory

Spies in Disguise bought a Time Share

Daddy’s Home as well as Melinda & Melinda

The Human Contract revealed The Secret Life of Bees

The Anchorman reported A Deadly Adoption

Men in Black were sent with the Suicide Squad

Megamind said Everything Must Go

But he was a Semi-Pro with Vice

My Collateral Beauty rose on Independence Day

Curious George was an Elf

The Goods were there to Live Hard and Sell Hard

But I had to Wake Up Ron

The Enemy of the State was iRobot

That vacuum cleaner was a SuperStar

But with Hancock and Hitch

The House Get(s) Hard with The Suburbans

After Earth, The Redemption

Was Austin Powers on Talladega Nights

The Winter’s Tale of Aladdin Made in America

Was The Lego Movie

Holmes & Watson were Bright

The Seat Filler gained Seven Pounds

May Seas


With every kind of kitchen convenience

With every type of fathomable container

Seems I am kept by this genius

What could be any plainer?

Blessed to have them by day

And VERY blessed to leave them at night

Tis my home away from home

And I’ll never be alone

I tried to set it and forget it

But that theory was false

Although I live without Sunbeam

It saves my skin to gleam

Such a restless spirit nonetheless

In this man-made scheme called progress

Even as my star is an embarrassing red

It could be worse, I could be dead

With Princess Diana and Darling Nicki

The situation gets awfully sticky

Don’t wanna be Goliath going up against David

Let my true path be pave-Ed

Scandalous Stalking


He spoke of a code to access the stock room
I considered the unsaid possibilities
With this fine, potential cabana boy
As one could expect, there’s a time, place & space for everything
Therefore, I played this foolish game
As I tugged on our drawers
…Oh YES…
(and that is how we score at the store)
