She looks so happy

From the outside, many of us do.

Sure and in control

Man, I wish that were true.


For every question

So sure we have all the answers.

Act as if we’re immune

To weakness, disease and cancers.


He stands there so calm.

No sign that he’s ready to explode.

Sleeves rolled up: digs in

This close to just running down the road.


There is no training for this.

Won’t find it on utube or Internet search.

There is no training for this.

                 No help from lawyers, police or church.


For every question

So sure we have all the answers.

Talk as if we’re not human

Just crazy, drugged up dancers.

    It’s good poetry. Are you planning to set it to music?

      Thanks! I would like to set this to music in the near future. I move slower these days. I will be 65 years old by the end of this year, and often joke about which song will be my last. I will probably write forever, but not sure how much longer I will spend the kind of time needed to arrange and record songs. For NOW, I will keep recording and releasing as much as I can.
      I still have about 50 written songs that I would eventually like to record. Then there are the projects I have worked on with other musicians. Maybe when I finally retire from my day job LOL!
