“Remember when.. .”

"Remember when.. ."

“Remember when.. .”

.

Remember when the skies were blue,

And children went out to play,

Before the sky changed it’s hue,

And the earth began to decay.

.

When flowers bloomed,

In sunlight’s ray,

Before the gloom,

Of skies of gray,

Before the doom,

Of every day,

Remember when skies were blue?

“Once There Was A Site”

"Once There Was A Site"

Once there was a light,
Such a beautiful ‘Site‘,
Where people would write,
Late into the night;

Writing about fights,
And men of might,
Of insect bites,
And fishing for pike;

Of stars so bright,
And birds in flight,
Of boots too tight,
While taking a hike;

And flying kites,
Reaching great heights,
Riding bikes,
And colors not white;

Of things in sight,
Plants with blight,
Of all that’s right,
And even a grip.

Yeah,.. .
Once there was a ‘Site’,
It’s light burned bright,
Where people would write,
Late into the night;

‘Twas a beautiful ‘Site’ indeed.

“Once Upon A Time”.. . in America

Once Upon A Time;
We Were A Country To Be So Proud Of,
To Be An American Meant Something;

We Held Our Heads High,
And Answered To No One.
We Protected The Weak,
And Stood For What’s Right.

We Went Out To Save Life,
And Always Be Counted On.
We Were A Great Heat,
And Fought The Good Fight.

We Were So Great Once,.. . .
Once Upon A Time In America.. .

“America is Not The Greatest Country in The World Anymore”
