Lavender Eyes
WARNER BAXTER Dec 2013
To be behind a slight disguise
behind those liquid lavender eyes

Long search hard to find
a special soul nothing unkind

A feeling strong a heart that's true
but wait, I think they're deep deep blue

I stare into a certain fate
I feel the pulse with quickened gate

Into those eyes I do fall
spirit image and magic call

I an certain this is no illusion
wonderful real no confusion

Lavender eyes forever together
sharing time with my beautiful feather

Lavender eyes no disguise
I gaze into those Lavender Eyes

(Her)
staring up at the darkened sky
stars come out lighting it up so bright
who knew I'd be standing here alone
after all we had, now you're gone
you took my heart when you fled
now I'm broken and empty you left me in shreds
why did you choose to go
guess that's the answer I'll never know

(Him)
staring up at your darkened eye
scars come out cutting it up so tight
who knew I'd be standing here alone
after all went bad, now you've won
you tore me apart with words you said
now I'm broken and empty you left me for dead
why did you choose to go
guess that's the answer We'll never know

Chorus

(Duet) our love will last longer, together we're stronger
we can turn back the time and change the past
(Her)  can we turn back the time
(Him)  can we turn back the time
(Her)  can we turn back the time
(Him)  can we turn back the time


(Her)  staring out at the sparkling sky
stars come out to our hearts delight
(Duet)  who knew we'd be standing together
we have a love that lasts forever
(Him)  you fill me up with love in my heart
your hand in mine never far apart
(Duet)  that's why I chose you
love is the answer we'll always know

Chorus X2

(Her)  can we turn back the time
(Him)  can we turn back the time
(Her)  can we turn back the time
(Him)  can we turn back the time
(Duet)  can we turn back the time

Palestine and Israel
To the tune of Home, Home on the Range

Oh, give me a land where no Hebrews stand
where Palestine could live and shine
where seldom is seen a Rabbi or ‘stein
and Jerusalem could be all mine



(chorus)
Land, land without Jews
where Palestine could live and shine
where seldom is seen a Rabbi or ‘stein
and Jerusalem could be all mine


(Israel)
You don’t understand, God gave us this land
where Palestine would hate and whine
where seldom it seems, peace is a dream
and Jerusalem should be all mine



(chorus)
*Land, land of the Jews
where Palestine still hates and whines
where seldom it seems, peace is a dream
and Jerusalem shall be all mine
This is a humorous view of two groups trying to occupy the same small piece of land unsuccessfully for over 4,000 years.

Can you solve this riddle?
WARNER BAXTER Apr 2014
.
A man has a wolf, a goat and a head of cabbage. While traveling, the group comes to a river's edge. The river is wide with a swift current.
The man obtains a very small boat/raft, floating thing. So small in fact he can only take one of the three at one time. Here is the problem. If he takes the cabbage, the wolf would surely eat the goat. But if he takes the wolf, the goat would surely eat the head of cabbage. How can he get himself, the wolf, the goat and the head of cabbage all safely across the river to the other side?

Take a moment and try to figure it out  then read my little story to help you along. Have fun and I'll see you on the other side of the river.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~­~~~~

There once was a man from Afghanistan
with his wolf, some cabbage and goat
set forth to cross the desert remote
they trudged for days on end, maybe as long as a week
whew!! the smell of that cabbage **** did it wreak
over dunes and hills to a mountain's ledge
which lead them down to the river's edge.

Now the wolf was a master over hill and dale
but crossing the river, he would surely fail
with cabbage as baggage and a goat that won't float
he knew in an instant, he needed a boat.
He stammered, and scratched and pondered awhile
he couldn't decipher how they could all cross The Nile

He grabbed a few pieces of floating wood
and lashed them together a tight as he could
He stared at his float, then peered the wolf,
back to the float then to the goat, Hum,
with cabbage, wolf and goat to tote
he prayed to his God, I need a small boat
Then all of sudden sand blew in his eye
and a rumbling voice came out of the sky

F- E- R- R- Y

Now everyone knows that wolf eats goat
and a goat will eat anything especially cabbage
But did you know that nothing rhymes
with cabbage and wolf, except
for wolf and cabbage blah blah blhababage.

So there my friends the problem is solved
if you are able to postulate.
Just carefully follow these simple steps
one, through six, seven and eight.



1. take the goat over  2. come back get cabbage  3. take cabbage over  4. bring goat back
5. leave goat  6. take the wolf over  7. come back, get goat  8. take goat over again

DEFINITION OF: haiku
WARNER BAXTER Jul 2015
“While the rules for writing haiku in Japanese are clear,
there is no Clear consensus for any other language.
This means that I am write and everyone else is wrong.”
                                                      ­            *~writer unknown~


Definition of: haiku* (according to Words Of Warner)

A secret and ancient Japanese style of poetry. Invented and
protected by the elite group of ninjas known only as The Basho.
Some say, The Basho dwell in a sacred temple made of gold and
rice paper, hidden deep in the bottom of Mt. Fiji. Others claim
they are in elaborate tents made from the finest silks at the
highest peak of Fiji. But no one knows for sure. Except maybe
James Mc. But he’s not talking.


How to write a haiku -

First, pick a subject. You must choose from the chosen list;
rain, wind, the sun, bugs, Mt. Fiji, Bruce Lee or frogs on a pond.
The only exception is snow, and only used during the winter.

Second, pick a form.  You can write in 1, 2 or 3 lines, sometimes
4. It all depends on those silly syllables, or as the Japanese call
it, morae. Remember, less is more, more or less always but never.
Here’s a tip, the best haiku are written backwards.


Now you are ready to write your own fun little foreign poems
called haiku.*



Note: if you are counting “morae” or words, don’t forget to divide
the number of “morae” by the number of lines, or is it divide
the number of lines by the “morae” and please use the                          on-line    Japanese counter/converter.

life is full of choices and chances
single's dances and double romances
life moves on while stories are told
time can't be bought it's only sold
there's a light that dims each passing day
of sons and daughters lost along the way


somewhere under a tangerine sky

it's impossible to read his face
never met the man he tries to replace
too high the gamble, too high the cost
another year taken another year lost
life moves on while stories turn gray
of sons and daughters lost along the way


somewhere under a tangerine sky
he's a ghost from the coast, beneath the hot desert sun
the mercury rises and the air is dry, bye and bye
somewhere under a tangerine sky


a faded shadow standing in the wind
no longer the man he had once been
wandering lost with thoughts all alone
the price he pays for what went wrong
more and more memories fade away
of sons and daughters lost along the way


somewhere under a tangerine sky

THE OMISSION OF TRADITION
WARNER BAXTER May 2015
It has never been my intension
nor was it ever a bone of contention
to alter or disrupt the social convention
but now is the time to pay close attention
to the decline of the human condition

Responsibility rescinded creating moral decomposition
accountability abandoned causing legal repercussion
right and wrong are muddled in a malicious juxtaposition
public opposition has festered into social imperfection
the omission of tradition by politician’s redefinition


HEED THIS ADMONITION OR ARDENT APPREHENSION
SAGACIOUS SUSPICION AND PERSISTANT PREVENTION


Of the decommission of the Physician, Pediatrician
the Technician, and the Mathematician
and give this acquisition to those with no ambition
even those under suspicion of sedition
or held in detention without fear of restitution

This is the deception of the devolution
of the middle classification
and the total destruction
of American personification
praise the Lord and pass the ammunition

They came from The South, The North and The West Coast
450,000 together for peace and music, half a million at most

Richie Havens inspired all while singing his "Freedom" song
Country Joe McDonald dropped "F" bombs his whole set long

Carlos Santana amazed us, as he gave all and sacrificed his soul
Arlo Guthrie with Woody's ****, packed his pipe and smoked a bowl

Canned Heat and The Bear asked us to work together united stand
Levon Helm pounded skins and sang "The Weight" with The Band

Joe Cocker warned us more than once that he might sing out of tune
One after the other, CSNY, Alvin Lee, Sha Na Na midnight 'til noon

Janis gave a piece of her heart along with a "Ball and Chain"
Jefferson Airplane sang about Alice out in the pouring rain

The Fogerty's sang about where they were born and two girls one proud
And for the life of me I can't figure out why The Who played to this crowd

Jimi capped it off with The National Anthem and "Purple Haze"
the perfect ending to four long daze of rock and roll blaze

So if your travels take you to New York Up State
Stop at Bethel Wood, the place where Rock History was written in Slate

He set sail and never returned, sailing southward toward the Caribbean Islands. Within just days he attacked and captured the French Navel Ship "Cour Valant" and changed it's name to the "Satisfaction". Upon approaching an island he fancied, he attacked and captured the only ship in the harbor at Lawrence Field Jamaica, giving him 3 ships before ever stepping on dry land. He then declared himself Governor of Jamaica. During his career as a pirate would command 10 ships and vast amounts of wealth. He was loved by all men and hated by every country.  Then one day he sailed into the sunset and was never seen again.

I am so smart, I can fool myself
but I am too stupid to figure me out.
What's your problem?
If you don’t stand for something,
You will fall for anything.
Now pick yourself up, get a number and wait for your turn.
I think, therefore I am over qualified.
And that’s why you work here.
No, it’s not ignorance nor arrogance
I’m just smarter than you.
Were you born deficient or are you just stupid today?
Do not believe or even read every word that I have written.
Do not believe everything you think.
Remember you are special, just like everyone else.
Remember to take your smart pills.
I can see you had an extra bowl of stupid for breakfast this morning.
Then stop pretending to be stupid, that’s just dumb.
When you leave home, don't forget where you live and
don't forget your pants, again.
Ask me about my ability to annoy anyone any time.
That’s Mr. A$$hole (aays - ol - aye) to you, it’s Esperanto.
And yes, it is part of my charm thanks for asking.
Are we having fun yet?
The daydream is the free thinkers nightmare,
what do you think? never mind
Perjury murdered imagination, without an assault rifle,
or second amendment rights, without mass media
or an internet connection. What's your excuse?
I didn’t say it was your fault, I said, I was going to blame you.
So, how does it feel to be back on the hamster wheel?
C’mon man really?

your life you don’t care
You cuss and swear
You play those games
think you’re Jesse James
You cause friction and heat
live your life on the street

You got over due bills
You’re drunk all the time

You’re a Renegade Yeah Ah, Yeah Yeah
an outlaw renegade man, Ah Yeah
a Renegade Yeah Ah, Yeah

You’re fast on the draw

Our story begins in a galaxy far far away
on the dark chocolate side of The Milky Way

the planets all look like cookies and donuts
boys and girls grow to be bakers and astronauts

they have five different planets that orbit two suns
****** is smaller and Butter is the bigger one

the first is Glazey-1 the second is Eclarian-2
spell Heaven backwards and Nevaeh-3 comes into view

the forth is my favorite, they call it Smore-4
most well known for it’s white melting core

and last but certainly not least is Oreo-5
it’s surface is hardest and is smallest in size

a special place for sure is this sweet solar system
planets sparkle after a sugary rain sweetens and mists ‘em

watch a cartoon, blow a balloon or hum your favorite tune
or you can do as I do, and wish upon Macaroon Moon

who danced on stage with no pants

BLACK SHEEP will shine
WARNER BAXTER May 2014
(Intro)
I'll remember you, You'll remember me

life is like grains of sand, falling down from your hand
rolling on toe to tide, like an endless wave on an endless ride
the last thing you want is sympathy, gotta live your life, just have 'em let you be
you tried so hard, you tried so much, you can't please another if you're out of touch


(chorus)
black sheep will shine black sheep you're fine
black sheep will shine black sheep you're mine



remember what your father said, it really stuck in your head
you'll never be nobody's fool, gonna live your life by your rule
you got the money, you got the fame but you're walking that tight rope, barely sane
Time takes a back seat to no man, gotta stick with your life, shift in your plan

black sheep will shine black sheep you're fine
black sheep will shine black sheep you're mine

(repeat chorus)

life is like grains of sand falling down from your hand
Slowing down before you slide, now pick up your speed, shift into glide
you got the money you got the fame you got your name, so you better take aim
you tried too hard, you tried too much you can't please another if you're out to lunch

black sheep will shine black sheep you're fine
black sheep will shine black sheep you're mine

(repeat chorus x2)

(outro)
you'll remember me

Arizona Spring
WARNER BAXTER Mar 2014
.
*the honeysuckle nectar is gathered with a buzz
cactus flowers perform their sweet encore, just because

sandals tip toe in short skirts, so busy are the eyes
spilling ink are poets, minding minds of the wise

love is in the air breezing through limbs and leaves
newlyweds sniffing with mouths under dancing trees

spring has sprung and love is singing everywhere
while country clocks crawl and standing still is Time Square

AMERICAN TIME
WARNER BAXTER Dec 2013
Once upon a time
            there were days, months and years
Once upon a time
           we would plan, dream and we had no fears
Once upon a time
           there were moments, evenings and late afternoons
Once upon a time
           we heard stories, sang songs and watched Saturday cartoons
Once upon a time
           there were decades, generations and changing seasons
Once upon a time
           we saved Sunday for church and we all knew the reason
Once upon a time
           we stood and pledged with a hand on heart
Once upon a time
           we were united together, we all did our part
Once upon a time
           we held liberty, freedom rich in red, white and blue
Once upon a time
           the world was a better place and you know these words are true
Once upon a time
           we almost lost our freedom land
Once upon a time
           hope, faith and courage became our stand
Once upon a time
           there were statesman, patriots, heroes and leaders
Once upon a time
           we voted out the haters, pretenders and political cheaters
Once upon a time
           is now, right now, we have so much to save
           stand and fight for OLD GLORY long may it wave
Once upon a time
God bless America
Once upon a time

Sleepy poem
WARNER BAXTER Dec 2013
while I watch you sound asleep
I pray to God your soul to keep

with covers pulled tight 'neath your chin
still not sleepy I wonder when

the hands of the clock point 3 am
oh how I long for  r e m

a nod, a yawn, anything 'ill do
just to lay snug next to you

so for now I write it true
this sleepy poem called, I love you

More Than Wonderful
WARNER BAXTER Dec 2014
you are love my only power
needing each hour after hour
you gave me love when I had none
just meeting you my life begun
~~
what is love, what is the power?
your loving heart my one desire
you are the one that makes love fun
the two of us love on the run

(chorus)
just take my hand we’ll walk this land
just you and me is what will be
so much more than great
more than wonderful
just you and me is what will be
more than wonderful

becoming you becoming me
together our love was meant to be
where there were two now there’s one
loving you until I am done

(chorus)
*just take my hand we’ll walk this land
just you and me is what will be
so much more than great
more than wonderful
just you and me is what will be
you’re more than wonderful
just take my hand we’ll walk this land
just you and me is what will be
so much more than great

HER EYES
WARNER BAXTER May 2015

Liquid
lavender eyes
behind a slight disguise
I feel the pulse with quickened gait
spell bound I stare into a certain fate
spirit image and magic call
into those eyes I do fall
lavender eyes
Liquid

Big brown
beautiful eyes
bewitching brazen eyes
I glance then gaze they hypnotize
her tawny ****** ***** bedroom eyes
they tantalize they mesmerize
sultry sweet smiling eyes
beautiful eyes
Big brown

Pretty
baby blue eyes
open wide to see inside
pulsing like ocean’s crystal tides
bottomless pools like Caribbean cove
hypnotized I fall deep in love
swimming in her soulful
baby blue eyes
Pretty

Everyone Poops
WARNER BAXTER Aug 2015
When nature calls away from home
you need to find a public throne
a place that's clean to spread your cheeks
one that flushes without plumbing leaks
not at an outhouse or a remote latrine
they're so disgusting and very obscene


Time to hurry you're poking cotton
skid mark stains are never forgotten
parking your car at the local K-mart
releasing pressure, cheek sneak a ****
concern turns to fear of what you dread
passing gas has formed a turtle head


As your back side slaps the toilet seat
you realize this job will end incomplete
burning eyes from the methane vapor
on the roll not one square of paper
so every time you cut the cheese
don't forget to clinch and squeeze*
