My latest Blues Solo




Satisfy Me
Mind your manners
Watch your P’s n Q’s
Cause where you put them hands
Is about playin or singin the blues
Now you’ve been blessed
Surely well endowed
But failing to satisfy me
Be told by any crowd
I’ve been good to many
But you I want to impress
Tune me up tune me out
It’s the music you gotta express
Learning five positions
Means you ain’t no crackerjack
I need a whole lot of loving
To keep me on my back
See, fingers got to move in unison
Lightning quick, no phony tricks
Prove I’m not a One-Trick Pony
Best be mastering your licks
You can pull my strings
Call me Les or even Paul
But if you can’t satisfy me
You ain’t nuthin at all.

Hello all . . .

Came across something in my shytehouse poetry of memories that's still pretty relevant these days.
I apoligize... It is not Canadian Club but kudo's to George Carlin R.I.P. because it sure as hell rhymes to me.

I bleeped the bad words as best I could .

There's a reason that education sucks, and it’s the same reason it will never ever ever be fixed. It’s never going to get any better, don’t look for it. Be happy with what you’ve got. Because the owners of this country don’t want that. I’m talking about the real owners now, the big, wealthy, business interests that control all things and make the big decisions.

Forget the politicians, they’re irrelevant.

Politicians are put there to give you that idea that you have freedom of choice. You don’t. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land, they own and control the corporations, and they’ve long since bought and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the State Houses, and the City Halls. They’ve got the judges in their back pockets. And they own all the big media companies so they control just about all the news and information you get to hear.

They’ve got you by the balls.

They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want; they want more for themselves and less for everybody else. But I’ll tell you what they don’t want—they don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don’t want well informed, well educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that. That doesn’t help them. That’s against their interest. You know something, they don’t want people that are smart enough to sit around their kitchen table and figure out how badly they’re getting fracked by a system that threw them overboard 30 fracking years ago.

They don’t want that, you know what they want?

They want obedient workers, obedient workers. People who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork and just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shittier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, the reduced benefits, the end of overtime and the vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it. (INSERT CPP HERE)

And now they’re coming for your social security money.

They want your fracking retirement money; they want it back so they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street. And you know something? They’ll get it. They’ll get it all from you sooner or later because they own this fracking place. It’s a big club and you ain’t in it! You and I are not in the Big Club. By the way, it’s the same big club they use to beat you in the head with all day long when they tell you what to believe. All day long beating you over the head with their media telling you what to believe, what to believe, what to think and what to buy.

The table is tilted folks, the game is rigged.

Nobody seems to notice, nobody seems to care. Good honest hard working people, white collar, blue collar, it doesn’t matter what color shirt you have on. Good honest hard working people continue, these are people of modest means, continue to elect these rich xxxx xxxxxx who don’t give a frack about them. They don’t give a frack about you. They don’t give a frack about…give a frack about you! They don’t care about you at all, at all, at all.

And nobody seems to notice, nobody seems to care.

That’s what the owners count on, the fact that Americans are and will probably remain willfully ignorant of the big red, white, and blue dxxx that’s being jammed up their arseholes everyday. Because the owners of this country know the truth, it’s called the American Dream, because you have to be asleep to believe it.

Counting Sheep
Restless nights unable to sleep
Visions of the dead replace my sheep
Toss and turn my head so eerily aches
In pools of sweat my body constantly shakes
Nightly encores create serious doubt
Our dialog open but nothing ever comes out
Hour upon hour our paths collide
The only clear winner he who cannot hide
Drifting from yesterday a place of sorrow
Looking for completeness perhaps tomorrow
Offers of truce followed by medicinal toasts
Do nothing to quell my nightly hosts
Hand on my head another clutching a .22
Hammer rearward and then…… thoughts of you
For being less I sincerely apologize
As I long for closure behind closed eyes
These eyes are heavy many tears they weep
It’s time for me to finally count my sheep

Here is a guy that received millions, was revered world wide given the highest place in Canadian Society and now..............he whines..................

Hey Ben Johnson
On top of the world all covered in gold
You took the drugs so the story is told
Now you throw a challenge way to great
On a sport you cheated and obviously hate
Ideally when your love for the sport is flawed
Expect the scoffs as more fail to applaud
Times have changed the world a much faster place
You’re still a cheater and a huge disgrace
You had your chance at glory and fame
Time to bow to a real champion a Jamaican named Usain.

Pieces
Picking up the pieces
No time to pocket your glory
Other battles quietly wage on
Albeit that’s another story
Picking up the pieces
A warrior stands tall
No better than you
Just answered a call
Picking up the pieces
Honored by what others fail to do
Mission after mission
Dying a bit more for you
Picking up the pieces
Blood spilt over foreign ground
Yet all thoughts collected
No regret can be found
Picking up the pieces
Another warrior laid to rest
A victim of sacrifice
Countless honors pinned upon a silent chest
Picking up the pieces
A simple cross for all to see
Poignant inscriptions affirming
Mission complete finally free
Who is the only one picking up the pieces?

Life deals you crappy cards sometimes, but always remember high cards don't always make you a winner............. stay strong troops

“The Joy in Your Eyes”
An infant’s cry cracks the silent night
Into the bosom of mother held so tight
Surely your touch comes as no surprise
Briefly blind he senses “The Joy in Your Eyes”
That very first touch a connection is made
Like a birth mark your presence will never fade
It is above all his greatest prize
Eyes now wide open he sees “The Joy in Your Eyes”
Suckling a breast a meal fit for a King
He listens to your voice inviting you to sing
A playful waving tap on fingers not so wise
A caring mother he sees from “The Joy in Your Eyes”
Foolish are your little boys at play
Tired and exhausted they slumber where they lay
In a strange place where being loud is unwise
He is lost without “The Joy in Your Eyes”
As a child he learns to hide sorrow and pain
A normal existence is everything shy of humane
The favors of men he learns to despise
Raped and naked craving for “The Joy in Your Eyes”
Tears on his pillow become an unmoving act
Spirited and animated his smile intact
Hostile emotions now befriended allies
He sets out alone without, “The Joy in Your Eyes”
Time afforded him places never explored
Alive and content a delicate reward
Filled with truths and unhindered lies
Your eyes failed to see, “The Joy in His Eyes”

Hate
The many pages I fill using the word hate
Looking back I fear that number extremely great
I begin to count and every once in a while, hesitate
Catch my breath that much even I’d anticipate
Amusing how my pupils dilate
Those once immaculate lines suddenly dissipate
Placing a finger where I left off I concentrate
Feeling that word and all that it is or will create
A simple syllable continually wanting to reverberate
It’s obvious intention, merely to berate
Maybe by mixing the letters I’ll learn to alliterate
Happily hording hatred a goal needed to alienate
Then the meaning of lesser words you cannot exaggerate
This formation of letters no longer agitate
Surely less audible words I must learn to conjugate
Such as love, empathy and emotions I need not elaborate
Feelings I do not know look how freely they now communicate
Perhaps that is why I fill my pages with hate
A sneer, rolling of the eyes and a scowl these I tolerate
Feelings like these do not expose you nor incriminate
Perhaps I can dress up that word that fills my pages, or is it too late?

Stuffed Bunny
A stuffed bunny with eyes of blue or brown
Stitched on smiles filled with cotton or down
Fishing line whiskers large and floppy eared
Comforting a child a night’s slumber never feared
The stuffed bunny becomes the light of all life
At a kitchen table escaping death from a buttered knife
Freed from the jaws of the family cur
Dressed to the 9’s in gown and fur
Such genius smiles from thankful mom and dad
Comfort of a stuffed bunny made a child less sad
Ah but days, then weeks and soon enough years
Give way to discoloured and lifeless ears
Eyes once blue or brown
Now detached never to be found
Held and snuggled the stuffing worn thin
That stuffed bunny tossed aside somewhere in a bin
Ah but soon enough the nightmares return
The stuffed bunny its comfort they surely yearn
Out of the bin an operation to renew
Washed and stuffed eyes attached with glue
Who could believe it was ever tossed aside
As slumber returns and fear once again denied
I find it odd and strange indeed
How a stuffed bunny fills an emotional need
Pampering an inanimate object more than the child
Is overwhelming, unbelievable and wild
To hand a child a toy made to comfort one so small
It was the stuffed bunny who answered that nightly call
A stuffed bunny who never spoke a single word
A language your mom and dad never heard
If I were a stuffed bunny I wonder what would become of me.
Hopefully restored and treated with dignity.

Just to enlighten what the premise of that last poem implies. The act of standing be it in unfamiliar place, against a wall, in a corner or a graveyard the act implies being lost or not being in a place that is familiar to a soldier.
The emotion of being lost is supported by "Where" as in where a bridge once spanned is the brotherhood, the regimental system, and the mountain is the everyday life of a leader and so on, without the "where" you become a faded picture, a worn and tattered uniform, simply you stick out and now are not "included in any reindeer games" no matter how many battles you fought. That is my interpretation now make it your own.
If you want you can start here
Standing where a bridge once spanned, now your are are your own so to speak. Cheres and thanks for the fed back troops appreciate it, honestly.
