Eight Balloons no one was buyin'
All broke loose one afternoon.
Eight balloons with strings a-flyin'
Free to do what they wanted to
One flew up to touch the sun POP!
One thought highways might be fun POP!
One took a nap in a cactus pile POP!
One stayed to play with a careless child POP!
One tried to taste some bacon fryin' POP!
One fell in love with a porcupine POP!
One looked close in a crocodile"s mouth POP!
One sat around until his air ran out WHOOSH!
Eight balloons no one was buyin'
They broke loose and away they flew
Free to float and free to fly
And free to pop where they wanted to.
Cause it's a bittersweet symphony this life
Trying to make ends, meet, you're a slave to the money then you die

The Start Of Spring
It is the first day of spring
Not officially, of course.
The air has been transformed,
taking on delicious savor.
Nature, it seems, abides by
no earthly calendar.
A fragrant scent replaces
the lifeless, icy chill.
Like a rite of the new season
the air hints at baseball.
As if on cue, we run home
to retrieved our mitts,
awakening them from
a long winter's slumber.
The trees are in bloom
We can see the first buds
protruding from extended limbs
Life has returned to our little town
All is as it should be
Nothing Gold Can Stay
By Robert Frost
Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.
You think you got game like Lebron....
She was the Martha Stewart of our quiet little dorm
I don't rock molly... I rock Tom Ford.
