What crossroad are you at and what way will you choose?
If you are upside down, what does the world look like?
What/whom have you excluded that you might re-consider?
Battered, bombed, pelted… Oh My… The old, extraordinary tall Oaks that make their stand in my yard are releasing their Acorns with the help of mad little squirrels. Imagine a hail of golf balls pummeling your roof with every gust of rainy wind. I MEAN… Pummel, batter, bomb. Sleep was near impossible. It was clear that my bedroom had a target directly positioned above my head. This is a first for me. Bastards.
Thanks for listening.

OLD DOG TRICKS
The trick is in the ‘Old Dog’
they learn well if they have too
Days of jumping through the fire hoop
catching the toss in the air
rolling over for some idiot’s want
that maybe gone, ignored, dismissed
certainly executed in a new way.
Old Dogs sit, roller over, catch the ball
they like their food and drink
Some play well together, some don’t
Some will lick you all over if you let them
Some will nip your ass hard for a fight
Some will bring you the daily news
Some will bring their old chewed bone
Old Dogs want new tricks
keeps them young, limbered up
rough n’ ready for a new day
Sasses their curiosity up a notch
gives a wink to a pretty girl
a smile to a handsome man
dresses up their interior with some color
There is a trick in that Old Dog
waiting for you to toss them a bone
waiting for you to remember their youth
waiting to charm a smile out of you
waiting to jump through one more fire hoop
waiting for you to notice they ain’t dead yet
Teach an Old Dog a new trick and
see what happens.
