My Boy on the Beach

Little Boy Benjamin showing off his gut.
Shorts fall down and out pops his butt.
Squeal of delight and smile so big.
Shame 'cause he's nakey? He don't give a fig.

Dr. Snoose

Dr. Snoose is just plain silly.
He rhymes words with facitilly.
He is like a big, brown brame (insert picture of large, dumb-looking animal)
Cuddly? Yes.  But also lame.

The earth all around is cracked clay
Held together by weeds and dying soybeans,
Water a memory.

In Memory of Stella Hult (1923-2012)

Life began and early you heard
Words beyond your tender comprehension:
"I baptize you," he said.
"See there, you're dead.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit
Rise, Stella, rise."
What a surprise!
Somehow clinging to fickle water,
Was a promise.
"You are my daughter."

Life has now ended and still you will hear
Words that defy every measure:
"Come now, Beloved,
My promise is sure,
Sealed against tarnish and age.
Now raised again you will see at long last
The one in whose image you were made."

Damocles is long retired.
No doubt too the sons he sired.
Yet his sword remains as e'er
Dangling wicked in the air.
Doom is but a breath away
Watch your neck!  Get away!
Ah, if only t'were so easy
Don't read news that makes you queasy.
But it's coming after you
Damocles' wicked crew!!!
