Wanted: A Tune and Title

July 19, 2011

Every once in a while I have the urge to write a song. In doing so I, more often than not, believe that I’ve concocted something that will garner a GOLDEN GRAMAPHONE for its genius and danceability. Thus I bring you this…

past pages have their genius
but, cannot stand our touch
the cross child called for changes
but, forgets to use the clutch

the next crew have no anchors
as the old guard fades unsung
(with) a current cast just waiting
for a broken iron lung

with best friend, three-card Monty
we’ve been Pavloved in this fun
self inflictions by the trillions
clear the chamber of the gun

how could we let it get this far
an Edsel for our shining star
how have we let it go this far
the greatness now is below par

It’s just the rubbing away of mental cramps that seem to be more intense these days. But, I thought that if someone might hear my groans that they’d be able to tell me a folk remedy that could help.
Is there a “doctor” in the house? All that’s required is the ability to transcribe your cadence of groove.

” Don’t Have Much Money, But,”…

May 11, 2011

Boy, if I DID; I’d buy a New Commodore Sixty-Four. Like when a kid.
Ronny Ray-guns was miles away from the Mule-team. Even farther from “jipping” us as “The Gipper”. And Bonzo was drinking himself to outlast his “Manny”.
The resurrection of the “hacker’s” favorite e-tool has come none too soon. Bill thought that his window had shut off the ‘sixty-four’ from ever seeing the light of a display again… But the Redmond wrangler never counted on someone like Barry Altman reaching back into the future and disguising the Amiga’s Pappy as itself. But, with all its innards transplanted with today’s electro-goodies being able to still dance the “FOXTROT”. Although the turning of the table has changed from 33.3 r.p.m.s to 7200. Here are two articulate morsels to get your “I-net” pallet salivating over the possibilities of having a rocket’s performance via Sternwheeler looks.

The price says it ALL. Sometimes the FOX does get to trot again… with a gait that is hard to keep up with by OLD “Friends”.

They’ve “Given” Us a Month…

February 1, 2010

…What DO we take with us !?!

Since 1926 the people “of” have sought to make the recognition of Africa’s “Stolen” AND expatriated citizenry an [\’EDUCATION\’]. Albeit ALL compacted within the [shortest] group of days in the year, ( February was named after the Latin term februum, which means purification, via the purification ritual Februa held on February 15 in the old Roman calendar. [ wiki’d]). In the time that it took to bring this small “grant” to those, that didn’t have the blessing of “passage” through the doors of [\’Kioshk\’ Island], a “generation” has reached [“maturity”] and begun to explore the varied [\”gifts\”]. Imagine the waste, on our roadways, without the mind-full [inventor: Garrett Morgan]giving directive devices ? The Lowly, ($ 800 million ‘yearly’.), Peanut would NOT have given up its [now, lucrative] secrets were it not for the tireless [G.W. Carver].

The fact that 28 days HAVE been provided, for whomever desires to become better, is only as small as any [atom], to learn and “master” its abilities HASN’T been tapped as yet. The movie, (Disney), Akeelah and the Bee had a remarkable foundational moment that clearly defined the, competitive, climax of the film,

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you NOT to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

This quote is often erroneously attributed to Nelson Mandela. It actually comes from the book Our Deepest Fear by Marianne Williamson.

The concentration of time for the people of this nation is tremendously important, but in its limited time of existence is dying in some of its most needed [Locations and People]. It should be, as [Goerge Santayana] is, OFTEN, mis-quoted for: ” THOSE WHO CANNOT REMEMBER THE PAST ARE DOOMED TO REPEAT IT. Not too long ago a man who would attempt to become [President] of this nation considered this small “[gesture]” needless… at THAT time of Arizona making it a STATE Law. How time has CHANGED him. And, as to just WHAT “we” can TAKE WITH US… I do sincerely hope that whatever “WE”, as people, can ‘TAKE’ OUR SELVES FORWARD.

Can a BLUE Man Sing the WHITES ?

December 27, 2009

Anyone can write a song

but so few know how to play one.

Some right, some wrong

whose voice can color a writer’s flavors ?

As every picture tells a story

wouldn’t there be more than a THOUSAND words ?

Especially when there are over TWENTY dialects

in China alone.

But, can a blue man sing the whites ?

A brave voice far removed from known

cadence, structures, and, ethnic time

signatures. Will his disposition squander

the opportunity ? The FEEL ?

Everyone owns a private symphony.

Some just play it for themselves.

Can a Blue man sing the Whites ?

Just look for a forlorn face…

Wearing the eye with a twinkle.

“Acronileximagi”

January 22, 2009

Even though for the 20 some odd years that I’ve been running around theatres , accepting my salaries via the label of ‘STAGEHAND’, my “brethren”/ ‘brothers and ‘sisters’/ cistern(?) have constantly alluded that I “think” too much. HOW can anyone think TOO MUCH !?! I do my job, how well is according to another’s desire for advancement and how well they advertise the “facts”. I, myself, am OFTEN overheard telling most of these applican’ts that ” the ONLY reason that MY NOSE is BROWN is due to GENETICS”. (There are ONLY two Americans of African heritage holding a Journeymans card. “He” got his One year before I did.) But as of THIS moment that ‘fact’ is only “lexical manitol”.

For the true reason for this post, I read that as we are in a new cycle of governances the LEADING employer of people in this country, (not OF this country.), “of” citizens “of ” this country, ( “Confusing , AIN’T it !?!” [bugs bunny]) , is the GOVERNMENT of these “United” States of America, NO-ONE has more people ON PAY ROLL than “Uncle Sam” at the “Googled” amount of (approximately) 1.8 MILLION. Nine out of Ten of those do so OUTSIDE of Our Nation’s Capital. [No Pay Raise for YOU either. OUCH!!!]

Why DID I write this!?! First of all, I need a steadier INCOME than this recession is allowing for a family’s dicretionary funds to let them go to the “THEE-AH-TAH”. And as so many want the glamor of the ‘stage’, but have no “wind” for its duration of labors I desire to supplement the “yen” with something that all that “know” me would endorse… being an ‘ACRONILEXIMAGI’= One who works in the government ‘office’ that creates those anciently goofy words to describe ‘SOME-thing’ that needs an abbreaviatory Nom de plume [From AAA to ZIP.]. And in my being DYSLEXIC, the “SYBIL-SERVE US” testeses should be e-z.

WATT dew ewe think? Cannes eye rite the president and axe him if’n aye cold spill gnu wards fer hymn ?

A Smiling Dog

May 6, 2008

FANGS are always bare A Smiling Dog

There was a man out in the city swollen from the cold.

He wasn’t greying, just, slightly dying life’s travels made him old.

So helter-skelter time fought this welter in the hundreth round.

He said, “Hey, listen sonny I don’t want your money, before I go

I’ll tell ya’ the wealths I’ve found”.

A SMILING DOG’S FANGS ARE ALWAYS BARE.

DON’T COUNT THE LINENS THAT YOU’VE SHARED.

‘CAUSE PEACE-ON-EARTH IS BURIED DEEP,

THANK ALL GOOD COMPANY THAT YOU KEEP.

REMEMBER, REMEMBER

Now, all through his story, smoke, gasp and chokey

Was Aesop, Keats and, Hess.

I listened hard to the lessons of the WORLD’S changeling guest.

REMEMBERING, A SMILING DOG’S FANGS ARE ALWAYS BARE I CAN’T COUNT THE LINENS THAT I’VE SHARED.

BECAUSE PEACE-ON-EARTH IS BURIED DEEP,

I THANK ALL GOOD COMPANY THAT I KEEP.

REMEMBERED.

These words are, now, in the hands of one of soul music’s most famous unknown musicians, Mr. J.C. Davis.

Since I must introduce him, again, to the world at large the quick synopsis is this. Mr. Davis plays the Saxaphone, has for over 50 years. He started a band that had introduced a young guitarist that, later, asked if we were experienced. During the similar time frame J. C. asked his drummer to replace the band’s lead singer. He worked out so well that the group just caught fire, they were nothing if FLAMES. After parting ways Mr. Davis saw A BRAND NEW DAY, which was revisited 40 some odd years later when a young man sang DAMN GIRL. The MAN is back after many years of beating Cancer. Above is my gift TO MY FATHER’S BEST FRIEND.

It’s been six years and, the above IS the LAST “FLAME” alive. There are NO MORE original members of the “James Brown” band. He drives a nice little Corvette and looks after his Grandchildren. ALL “the old friends” have left “the stage” to leave J.C. on his “SOLO” career.
