Changing of the Guard

Mr. republican man I really don’t like your plans

Women will suffer and die in your legislative hands

You’re free to believe what you like, but not to force those beliefs on others…

It’s simply none of your business what we do with our bodies or under the covers.

Luckily for us your time of hatred and oppression will soon be ending…

As new diverse generations come to power our progression is pending.

In a moment of vulnerability, you ventured where you knew you were unwelcome…

Her discomfort for your pleasure was a trade you were willing to make…

You malign her now… decades later …because it no longer serves your interests to tell the truth.

She’s gone! It was the last in a long line of trespasses you would make against her…

The one betrayal she could not bring herself to forgive.

Free from the ugliness she’s moved on to happiness and you can’t stand it!

So even now… after all these years…you’re still sprinkling your poison wherever you think it might take seed.

But it changes nothing…She’s still gone and living her best life without you in it.

Your behavior was and always will be what was unforgivable.

Seeds of Love

Soon we will be parting

And I have got the blues

My heart and mind are fighting

Oh which one will I choose

My heart tells me I love you

My mind says it’s too soon

Though the seed becomes the flower

It needs some time to bloom

Once the seed is planted

It will begin to sprout

Like the seed the love in my heart

Is growing without a doubt

But love seeds cost just pennies

And many are planted each year

Without the tending they need to grow

The sprouts will die it’s clear.
