The chicken makes a menial contribution only
But for the pig breakfast is a total committment
A total committment is what God wants from us
Barry A. Lanier



bCommemorating the Violence

Mnemonic frames of political contention
Strategies of daily struggle shifting
From battles to eventful massacre
Inscribing historical quotidian experiences
Yet expedited within heroic frameworks
Unadulterated pain and human suffering
Pivotal and transformative yet what?
While swathes of scholars are evaluating
Politicians ardently debating, clergy praying
As the world watches, let us commemorate
Barry A. Lanier




After weather, what is there

to talk about? We could discuss

aches and pains, but think we

should leave them where they are

hidden. Under a thin veneer of

Tylenol and Goody Powder's.

We could talk politics? Nope,

We are good friends.

Maybe, television?

Nope, all the news is bad!

Maybe, the wives?

Nope, we're both divorced!

Hey, what do you think

The weather's going to be

Barry A. Lanier



bCounseling Theory Class

Of course being a fifty-something student,
In Counseling Theory class with twenty something females.
Tactfullness being superior to modesty,
Honesty supreme over misdirection,
Should I have told then about giving Joe a Viagra?
They were astonished and outraged!
Joe was a little hyperactive and foamed around the mouth for a couple days.
But he's really Ok now.
Got him back from the vet yesterday.
Barry A. Lanier
