Physical Adjustments

You can forget to doubt about,
Facing life without...
Trying to stop mental and physical,
Adjustments.
After a certain time,
When youth begins to be noticed to fade...
Tests to pass a patience once had,
Only prepares what had been tolerated...
For those next tasks to come.
Whether or not you choose to be stubborn.
Know this to be reality to leave a youth done.

Some live life refusing to believe,
Those days to awaken to jump out of bed...
To discover aches and pains to feel instead,
In both feet AND knees arrive for permanent visits.
With a back to pop and crack,
As reminders of aging and not jokes to tease.

And at a certain age,
When the body begins the doing of that.
All you can do is laugh. Sit back and accept.
But staying in denial to become upset with regrets,
Is a decision one makes to disguise their aging process...
As a temporary experience to address others impressed,
By an acceptance to pretend...
Youth to keep is a state of mind,
Without finding more time to lay down and rest.

'Why are those kids assisting as if to insist,
That 'old' man off the dance floor?
And he seems reluctant.
Although appearing to display showmanship.'

~I think he has finally been convinced,
A rhythm 'they' keep to the beat for him has ended.
When they began to wave their hands in the air,
Like they just didn't care with the raising of the roof?
Well...
He fell to his knees trying to get some air to breathe.
Then pretended he was James Brown.
Asking for a cape.
And someone obliged his request,
By covering him with a tablecloth.
And off the floor they carried him.~

Physically Challenged

I understand.
My methods to teach,
Are not acceptable.

But your honor...
All I asked my son to do,
Was to use the broom...
To sweep with it.

He then told me...
'If you know how to use it,
Do it!
You're not physically challenged! '
And he was right.

Both of us have learned 'something'
From this embarrassment.

And I am guilty for teaching him a lesson,
He will never forget.

Hopefully he will recover,
For the injuries received as he ran from me...
To get hit by that car.

He would have healed quicker,
If he had stayed still to get hit in the head...
By the broomstick!
Now he's laid up in the hospital.
And I'm sentenced to sit in a cell,
Wishing I did not yell...
But knocked him out instead!

With a thinking process quickly implemented.
Saving us both from such pain.
Even though remorse has been gained from this.

Pick It Up Or Be Gone

Pick it up or be gone.
What's given.
Pick it up or be gone.
What's there.
Pick it up or be gone.
The steak.
Or the rake.
Or the keys,
To open the gate!
Now...
Pick it up or be gone.
What's given.
Pick it up or be gone.
What's there.
Pick it up or be gone.
The steak.
Or the rake.
Or the keys,
To open the gate!
Now...
Don't try to imitate,
Homemade cake.
Oh no.
And don't ever try to duplicate,
A delicious taste.
Or...
Butter up faked mashed potatos.

Pick it up or be gone.
What's given.
Pick it up or be gone.
What's there.
Pick it up or be gone.
The steak.
Or the rake.
Or the keys,
To open the gate!
Now...
Pick it up or be gone.
Oooow.
Pick it up or be gone.
Yeah.
Pick it up or be gone.
Now...
Pick it up or be gone!

Pick This To Leave

A product solicited and much too erotic,
With a marketing done to the very young.
In articles that blatantly state:
'Scope Upon Your Pleasures.
And Keep Fixed In Positions to Satiate.'

Promoting promiscuity.
And the irresponsibility,
Of random breeding.

What else could this be?
But a fostering of humanity,
Depleting in self defeat.

Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope.
Don't need it.
Don't welcome it to feed it.

Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope.
New addictions may appease.
But pick this from your head to leave.

Don't let this sit.
Pick this to leave.
Or become addicted.
Make this leave.
Don't be submissive.
Make this leave.
Don't think of this as a benefit.

Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope.
Don't let this sit.
Pick this to leave.
Or become addicted.
Make this leave.
Don't be submissive.
Make this leave.
Don't think of this as a benefit.

A product solicited and much too erotic,
With a marketing done to the very young.
Someone, something has to stop it.

Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope.
Don't let this sit.
Pick this to leave.
Don't give this even a chance to breathe.

Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope.
Don't let this sit.
Pick this to leave.
Don't give this even a chance to breathe.

Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope.
Don't give this even a chance to breathe.
Don't let this sit pick this to leave.

Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope.
Don't let this sit pick this to leave.
Don't give this even a chance to breathe.

Nope. Nope...
Pick this to leave.
Nope. Nope. Nope.
Pick this to leave.
Nope. Nope...
Pick this to leave.
Don't give this even a chance to breathe.
