Safety Nets

Safety nets are no longer in use,
With a proof that they protect...
Those assets now reduced to leave,
Little left to cover increasing debts.
Even a breath kept to possess,
Is difficult to catch up with when chased.

Penny pinchers are heard expressing a wish,
They had done more adventuring.
Since diminished overnight,
Has been those precious nickels and dimes...
Picked to count to buy more time.

And those retired deciding to return back to work,
Find their expertise and once valued efforts...
More disrespected as they are made to feel worthless.

Safety nets are no longer in use,
With a proof that they protect...
Those assets now reduced to leave,
Little left to cover increasing debts.
Even a breath kept to possess,
Is difficult to catch up with when chased.

Fading and outdated are those safety nets.
And gone like time that moves on to foget,
Who had what with assets left.

Said Before To Say It Again

On my mind are these times.
And I do find these times on my mind,
Hard to define.
With a keeping of those,
Feeling these times have them boxed in.

And on my mind,
There is a reason to seek rhythm and rhyme.
With my visions set,
On what it would take...
To increase my happiness.

I've said this before to say it again.

I'm not looking for stoppers,
To block as obstacles to hop over.
Or the welcoming arms of acceptance.
With a hope that they will open,
The gates to a fence to feel I've been approved.

On my mind are these times.
And I do find these times on my mind,
Hard to define.
With a keeping of those,
Feeling these times have them boxed in.

Acceptance or not,
I'm not looking to get out of a box.
Too many have found themselves there,
To argue over space,
With little of it that to share.

I've said this before to say it again.
Those feeling trapped,
Like it exactly like that.

Fresh is the air,
One dares to breathe alone.
Revitalized is an atmosphere,
When the clearing of a sky,
Becomes recognized to the one who looks...
To discover the vastness of it to become known.

Samba Loco

Bah-pooh-bah-pooh, bop...
Bah-doodo.
Bah-pooh-bah-pooh, bop...
Bah-doodo.
Bah-pooh-bah-pooh, bop...
Bah-doodo.
Aaaaahhhh...
Aaaaahhhh,
Samba loco, baby.
I'm a samba dancing nut!
I love that Latin beat so much...
And the strutting done when I do my stuff.

Samba loco, baby.
I'm a samba dancing nut!
I love that Latin beat so much...
And the strutting done when I do my stuff.

I've got to groove my middle.
Swivel hips and tease.
I've got to be that swift foot hero,
With a rhythm felt that heats...
Everything that sways the beat.

Samba loco, baby.
Bah-dada.
I want to feverize the streets.
With a rhumba samba shown,
Grooving easily.

Bah-pooh-bah-pooh, bop...
Bah-doodo.
Bah-pooh-bah-pooh, bop...
Bah-doodo.
Bah-pooh-bah-pooh, bop...
Bah-doodo.
Aaaaahhhh...
Aaaaahhhh,
Samba loco, baby.
I'm a samba dancing nut!
I love that Latin beat so much...
And the strutting done when I do my stuff.

Samba loco, baby.
Bah-dada.
Feverize-the-streets.
Bah-dada
With a rum-ba number samba shown.
And a groove that's easily to reach.

Samba loco, baby.
Bah-dada.
Feverize-the-streets.
Bah-dada
With a rum-ba number samba shown.
And a groove that's easily to reach.

Same Sex Relationships

There are far more enjoying same sex relationships,
And happy in them without expressing regrets.
Than there are those in heterosexual ones...
To argue over nonsense that upsets.
With a seeking to stay together,
For the sake of appearances.

Yet...
Finding themselves with time to spend,
At 'singles' only bars to sneak to daily and on week-ends...
Just to complain about their spouses and their unhappiness.
And these are the signs of our times gone denied to hide.
Or to excuse with creative alibis.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
