Mayday, Mayday; Peak Oil Is A Reality; Conserve And Plan For Simplicity Visual Poem - Peak


...Mayday, Mayday, Peak Oil is real; planning will surely avoid demise

Make no mistake; to do nothing would be irresponsible and unwise

Firm, decisive actions must be taken, long before the peak

Genuine government interventions must be detailed and unique

Those startling distress signals are not just a pack of lies

We would be sensible to stop, think, recognize and realize

Fuh true, scores of drastic adjustments are set to occur, internationally; afar

Shifts will be obvious in residencies, industry and transportation; in particular

Supply and demand will require close monitoring; state of the art

Dependence upon fossil fuels should no longer be chic and smart

Producing food for fuel must be reconsidered or lives will disintegrate

Lack of oil will regulate and cause some to regroup and relocate

Rest assured, the difficulties of yesterday are for the most part; looming, incognito

And, dwindling oil supplies are slowly erasing, the possibilities of tomorrow

Don't trust the sugar coated reports; for, all ain't, status quo

Mayday, Mayday; God help us bypass the dicey, undertow...


Excerpt from Mayday, Mayday; Peak Oil Is A Reality; Conserve And Plan For Simplicity

Poem calling for all to conserve and plan for an existence that is not so dependent upon oil

Natchez Eight, Baby Boomer Siblings Bust on Stand - Visual Poem


The Natchez Boomer Siblings; that incredible eight

Born with dynamic God-given talents; to accentuate

It was reliance upon wit, trial and error; no matter the plight

Believe it; creativity propelled problem-solving and ignited insight

And, true faith in God; always reigned; clean, out right

For years, never-ending struggles set the stage for each Boomers journey

Many lessons were learned about life's ups, downs and harsh reality

The valiant Boomers forged careers and a survival tool

Anchored with morals, intelligence and resilience; ever so, cool

Yes, Boomers; you devised lives with a distinctive, regime

The Natchez Eight, Baby Boomer Siblings with notable, self-esteem

Thus, a Bust on Stand; eternally honors your tenacity, as supreme


Excerpt from Natchez Eight, Baby Boomer Siblings

Poem honoring eight, unique Natchez, Mississippi Baby Boomer siblings



Arthritis, Go On; Get Out 'uh Here; We've, Got The Victory


 ...Sure enough, arthritis, you're a condition that long ago, made a debut

 Now, you think you're in control and listed in the NMA, AMA Who's Who

 For years you lead the assault, just as free as you please

 But, lately, better methods have rallied, to seize your disease

 Don't you count that forty-six million as the start of a coup d'e'tat

 'Cause, DMARDs, NSAIDs and Cox-2 inhibitors, outwits your melee, phenomena

 Just so you know; our independence, you'll never, own

 Our future is not bleak and blown

 Hope and determination sets the tone

 Arthritis, you're fired as the mad, menacing puppeteer

 Listen up; you vicious annihilator; get out of here

 "Poof", "Be Gone", "Disappear"


Excerpt from Arthritis, Go On; Get Out 'uh Here; We've, Got The Victory

Poem to encourage those who are living with arthritis
