  1.     

Flip-Flops

Flip-flops, flip-flops, from where have you come?
From the beach, or the zoo, maybe even from Guam?
Tell me your stories; I’d like to hear these,
Have you walked to a shop for a ham sandwich with cheese?

Flip-flops, flip-flops, now where will you go?
To London or France, maybe even Cairo?
You and me, will explore in the rain,
While walking through sand on the coast of Spain.


Flip-flops, flip-flops, you’re now old and worn,
Your color has faded; your foam has been torn,
I’ve seen all your stories, its time to go.
Remember dear flip-flops, I love you so.

Sticks and Stones

Pirate skulls and bones,
Pirate ships and treasures,
Pirate seas and maps,
Pirate scales and measures.

Pirate skulls and bones,
Pirate do's and don'ts,
Pirate no's and yes's,
Pirate will's and won'ts.

Pirate skulls and bones,
Pirate takes and loans,
Pirate needs and wants,
Pirate sticks and stones.

Cry Havoc

See the people run for shelter,
Notice embers, fire, smoke,
Children crying, Women screaming,
People coughing, hear them choke,
Cry, 'Havoc! ' and let slip the dogs of war,
As tranquility is no more.

Watch buildings tumble to the ground,
Feel the smoke engulfing us,
Note the embers in your eyes,
This city would be infamous,
Cry, 'Havoc! ' and let slip the dogs of war,
As tranquility is no more.

Running from the burning structures,
Kicking up dust a lone rock slips,
Not aware of this rock,
It hits you and you trip,
Cry, 'Havoc! ' and let slip the dogs of war,
As tranquility is no more.

You cry for help,
But no one hears,
They all keep running even me,
Ringing in your ears shouts of fear,
Cry, 'Havoc! ' and let slip the dogs of war,
As tranquility is no more.

Embers fall upon your back,
Cry, 'Havoc! ' and let slip the dogs of war,
You feel the pain but ignore it,
As tranquility is no more.

Summer

Sweet dreams, ice creams,
White dove, summer love,
Sandy beaches, sandy toes.
Bikinis, flip-flops, Wholly Cow.
Summer's here. It's going fast.
Gotta make those times last.
