b'Mama Said' (Everything You Wanted Mother To Say)

Mama didn't read me
Fairy Tales and rhymes
Every night when she put me to bed
In the comfort of home when we were along
She'd recite the lines 'Mama Said'

Some times when you're filled with doubt and fear
'Mama Said', 'Try one day to discover your own idea'
Times get tough, life's filled with rigidity
'Mama Said', 'Son throughout life don't abuse your stupidity'

Sometimes when you feel, you've hit the bottom
'Mama Said, ' 'There's more virtue in the hoe, than in the cotton'
Sometimes when you feel, you've hit the end
'Mama Said, ' 'When the money runs out, you can count all your friends'

When you fall in love with the right one, give everything
'Mama Said, ' 'Love as you love, in all of your dreams'
When you don't find your dream, and don't really know why
'Mama Said, ' ' You can't catch a rabbit, with your dog tied'

When you need somewhere to think, and be all alone
'Mama Said, ' 'Remember, nature's pristine, where man hasn't gone'
When you've lost something, and really don't know why
'Mama Said, ' ' The river's most important, only when it runs dry'

When you're out on that beach, and flexing your tan
'Mama Said, ' ' Remember a good women, is twice any man'
When you're down on your luck, it seems the end of the world
'Mama Said, ' ' Remember only defective oysters, produce a pearl'
Barry A. Lanier



bMama Said Also-Good Uns'

Son 'Always remember to follow your heart, or a compass'

Son ' Never go out with a lady who doesn't wear underwear, for she is
to lazy to wash'

Son 'When you our having dinner with a lady, and she's starts rubbing
your ankle or foot, she's probably having an allergic reaction, go
get her a Benadryl'

Son 'If your dishswasher stops working, don't yell at her'

Son' The only reason God created alcohol is where ugly people could
have sex'

Son' If your wife is smoking while you are in bed, something's wrong! '

Son ' Grow up to be the kind of man your dog thinks you are'

Son ' Don't ever take all the girl talk so serious, it will come the time
when small things come back in style'
Barry A. Lanier



bMistress of My Mind

I see you on the bank of the river
dipping your feet into the waters
splashing the water with your hands
they are small, unblemished, like the
satin skin of your face, like the flaxen
hair, unbridled shining in the wind
your feet are small, no they are tiny
circling in the river, where you wrote
that last letter I answered and never
hear from you again, you used to write
beautiful love and emotion poems, all
in upper case, we got close once, but
never met, never touched, so you went
with the famous, what you found out is
that the famous worry about their fame-
not the beautiful young lady giving them
love, to awaken in the morning and write
in upper case, I loved you like a man loves
a women he never touches, only writes to,
keeps little photographs of, and dreams
of romance he shall never have, I see you
on the crying bench by the river, writing me
letters that I never got, weeping for lovers
who had hurt and forgotten you in time
but I did never forget you, and I still dream
of the beautiful lady sitting on the bank of
the river, dipping her feet into cool waters
to awaken in the morning and write poems
of love and emotion in upper case
Barry A. Lanier



bNaughty Girl

A pale blue were her eyes
Tall, slender, and sand hair
Confidant air of deep passion
Seemed to exude everywhere

Excuse me, my darling
As she would say
In making her escape
Teasingly walking away

And then upon her return
Jaws dropping to the floor
Magnificient heavenliness
Coming through the door

Black high-heel stilettos
Thong matching sexy gear
Beautiful long shapely legs
Putting my heart in fear

Running all the way from the floor
To curvacious loving hips
Mesmerized and speechless
Until hearing crack of the whip
Barry A. Lanier
