  1.     

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.

Waiting For You

Longingly, I wait here, under willow branches,
Waiting for you, becoming very anxious,
Longingly, I sit here, damp from all the rain,
Waiting for you, so you can ease my pain,
Longingly, I shiver here, wishing for your sweatshirt,
Waiting for you, so you can stop my hurt,
Longingly, I cry here, waiting for your kiss,
Waiting for you, wait for that bliss,
Longingly, I leave here, nevermore waiting for you.
