Shpammer

He writes more than he reads

And likes more than he writes

And if it doesn’t fit his taste.

It’s a simple matter of copy paste copy paste

……………………………………………………………….

So many friends yet to meet.

unrecognizable if passed in the street.

So many doors tightly shut

The mask can’t disguise the empty gut

……………………………………………………………….

In the beginning it seemed humane

Now, each day slightly more insane.

The clock ticks savagely on the wall.

Counting without technology

Moments that never existed.

………………………………………………………………..

Tick tok tik.

“Oh God I think I’m getting sick!”

No, it’s not even a cold

You’re world is simply getting old.

………………………………………………………………..

If you’d be so amiable to please take a seat,

Put on pijamas and rest your feet.

Please don’t bother to ask me why!

There are no questions when you’re waiting to die.

BROKEN WING

It’s hard to get up in the morning
When there’s an angel in your bed.
She comes and goes without warning.
But she’s always in my head.

I saw an angel come crashing down.
She broke her wing when she hit the ground
It makes a strong man cry
When an angel doesn’t fly

I saw her face in the mirror.
I saw her smile in the new sunrise.
As my vision becomes clearer,
I see the the world through her eyes

[these are the lyrics to a song. The second stanza, or the chorus was inspired by a sweet, friendly, pretty young lady that had a very bad skiing accident last winter. Turns out she’s also very strong, because I hear she’s doing very well.]

Scared

You should hide.

It’s horrible,

Terrible.

Oh my God!!!

people die.

Millions will die this year.

That alone should scare you.

……….

I smile with the new sunrise

knowing the mourning.

Of a lonely sunset.

Somewhere else.

I BELIEVE (song lyrics)

I’m not gonna run

I’m not gonna hide,

I’m gonna stand my ground

And put up my best fight.

‘Cause I believe in America

I believe in the free.

I believe in America

And America…

Believes in me.

I don’t know who’s right

I don’t know who’s wrong

I’m just glad to be here

Singing out freedom’s song,

‘Cause I believe in America

I believe in the true.

I believe in America

And America…

Believes in you.

I don’t know who’ll win

I don’t know who’ll lose.

But if we stand together

There ain’t nothin’ we can’t do

‘Cause I believe in America

I believe in the trust.

I believe in America

And America…

Believes in us.

 

I believe in America…

And I believe in love.

I believe in America…

And I believe in love.

I can’t breath!

My mask is too tight.

I can’t breath!

My mask is too tight.

I can’t breath!

My mask is too tight.

“Can’t you see?

You’ll never be free.

Don’t dare put up a fight.”

Slavery was a form of control,

Now they asphyxiate  your body and coerce your soul

I’ve lost two friends
During the corona scare.
Neither had the virus.
They were both artists.

One marched in civil rights rallies
In the 60s.
The other dreamed of being a famous guitarist.
They both lived alone.

Losing the will to live.
An incalculable number.
That grows every day.
