(News: A top US immigration official has revised a quote inscribed on the Statue of Liberty in defense of a new policy that denies food aid to legal migrants. So we have  a sonnet and a new title to celebrate it:-benny)

 

Lancet Anyone?

Not like the suntann’d squire of golf links

With executive rights whining from coast to coast:

Here at last foul mouthed, maniacal boast,

He reveals his true self and his links

To white supremacists Aryans and such kinks-

Tossed from tree mired in dirt ‘n ground frost:

Liberty shall no more be commended

Nor its strength restor’d, not until truth sinks:

Liberty for few is bondage for the whole,

Soul of nation so shall in shame suffer.

Show me what good has done for your soul

Than set the basest of the base to revere

And your vaunted freedom worse than a boil

Fouling and dragging down the body entire.

O Drone you are down!

Like albatross You



Are shot down the sky-



In the silent hour

Hell keeps no account 



Of shame and glee:



When fools walk around flee

-

O Drone you are down!

That’s life (that’s life) that’s what mama say
She’s saying what is not true-
May be for her
In her time but sure not for me:
When I’m young I know this life is all that
I have, that’s life (that’s life) and mama spent it all:
Some people get their kicks
Stompin’ on a dream
But I don’t mind what mama did with her dream.
‘Cause this fine old world of her is rockin’ chair now
I’ve been a crawler, a moppet, a drooler
A kiddo, a bloke and a jerk
I’ve been up and down and over and out
But I know one thing
Each time I find my feet I know life is out there
I pick myself up and get back for some more-
That’s life (that’s life) I tell ya, I can’t deny it
I thought of quitting, mama
But my heart just ain’t up to follow
And being old is when I have nothing more to do.

A New Canaan
Of U.S Constitution, and the first
Amendment let me not discredit
Founding Fathers nor their sagacity:
Their New Canaan was but one continent,
Pity them, for conscience of pilgrims
Still shackled fast to the fleshpots o’ Europe
Cast the new resolution more o’ the old
feuds, -amid alarums and skirmishes
Taint the new soil, where bisons roamed free;
In the shackles of proud race the new
ever mire’d foul, they made their home as of old;
With their guns drew their fate in New Canaan.
Original:
OF Mans First Disobedience, and the Fruit
Of that Forbidden Tree, whose mortal tast
Brought Death into the World, and all our woe,
With loss of Eden, till one greater Man
Restore us, and regain the blissful Seat,
Sing Heav’nly Muse, that on the secret top
Of Oreb, or of Sinai, didst inspire
That Shepherd, who first taught the chosen Seed,
In the Beginning how the Heav’ns and Earth
Rose out of Chaos: or if Sion Hill
Delight thee more, and Siloa’s brook that flow’d
Fast by the Oracle of God; I thence
Invoke thy aid to my adventrous Song,
That with no middle flight intends to soar
Above th’ Aonian Mount, while it pursues
Things unattempted yet in Prose or Rhime.

Maria . . .
(sings)

Oh most thunderous sound I ever heard:
Maria, Maria, Maria, Maria . . .
Drown the beautiful sounds of the world in a single sweep . .
Maria, Maria, Maria, Maria . . .
Maria!

In just a moment oh Maria,
Blast that sound How galling
Your name isn’t sweet anymore
To me.
Maria!
I’ve just kissed a girl named Maria,
But suddenly I find
She is blown sky-high far/ from me!

Maria!
Give her back,- and there’s redemption,
I shall pray like I never prayed before.

Maria,
Love never die- it is cruel!

The most beautiful sound I ever heard.
Maria

You cant do this to me,

Maria!

We got sunlight on the sand
We got moonlight on the sea;
We got mangoes and bananas

We got dem all straight from lab

Hi Tech all in all straight from lab

What ain’t we got?

We ain’t got peace!

We pick and choose color o’ babies
We get movies, live streaming
Music whole day Android
And wanna cry when we cant!

I click what on earth with virus

That get between, what a joke!

What don’t we get?
You know darn well

I see nothin’ like a chance
Nothin’ in the world
There is nothin’ life can give you
That peace cant fix : So gimme peace!

Nothin’ else was built the same
Heaven here and now
As cute as a button thing

Like peace resting on my heart!

I see a bad moon a-rising

I see Harvey comin on;

I see nowhere salvation

I see instead trouble.

Don’t go ’round tonight
It’s bound to take your life
There’s a bad moon on the rise

I hear hurricanes a-blowing
I know the end is coming soon
I fear rivers over flowing
I hear the voice of rage and ruin

Don’t go ’round tonight
It’s bound to take your life
There’s a bad moon on the rise.

(Ack:CCR)
