Beware clever blips


I won’t say I can’t
not even to rant
My rants about words
began not by chance

You see, as a tot
my father would not
allow such a word
with failure, so fraught

‘Can’t’ closes a door
to choices galore
and options that spur
the mind to implore

There’s always a way
may be not to day
A way that I ‘Can’
or new ways to play


Beware clever blips
as words leave your lips
‘Can’ts’ have a way of
tripping up your quips

So I won’t
No I don’t
Nor ever will I

Use this word
even slurred
It’s a lie, that’s why!



I jiggle when I wiggle
I wiggle when I walk
I wiggle walk around my block every single day

I’m groovin’ when I’m movin’
I’m movin’ and I’m provin’
that I’m ‘jiggle, wiggle, groovin’, movin’, havin’ a good day

The wiggles and the jiggles keep the groovin’ vibe alive
for every body needs a lot of movin’ to survive

The wiggles get things movin’, the jiggles keep things fun
the groovin’ keeps you provin’ things long after it’s all done!

Someone like us never listens to them

Someone like you
and someone like me
once thought it cool
to be happy and free

Someone like me
and someone like you
chose to do only
what they love to do

Someone like her
and someone like him
tried to tell them
not to live on a whim

But Someone like us
never listens to those
who choose to live lives
that they never chose

Never say never

I’ll never say never not ever, no never.
I’m much too clever to ever say never
Never makes nothing happen, never brings no one fun
Never is not a word, that inspires anyone.

I’ll find silver linings on every cloud,
rose colored glasses in every crowd.

Happy clams on every beach
and every star within my reach.

Four leaf clovers and wildflowers.
Pots of gold under rainbow showers.

So consider replacing your Nevers
with ‘perhaps’ or perhaps, a ‘maybe’.
Because words are really quite clever
your words have power you see?

There’s always a way,
another new day.
Until one day there is not.
So never say never,
wherever, whenever.
Because never is not what you thought.

Wish upon a Star

How do you wish upon a star?
It matters who you really are
It matters that you do believe
It matters not what they perceive

Do you close your eyes and plead?
Do you wish but then take heed?
Must you worry day and night
In fear, your wish might not take flight

When you see the star light beam
Turn your wish into a dream
Make your wish with all your might
And always keep your wish in sight!
