Carnal Knowledge

Poem By JohnHenry Strathmann

Music found me bullied, disenchanted,
Disenfranchised in my neighborhood.
Music came across me, and I ranted
Drowning out the din loud as I could.

Music was my link to some approval
Since athletic prowess hadn't worked.
Pick-up teams insisted my removal
From the team selection... I got jerked!

Music was my only true salvation;
Music could express my deeper thoughts.
Music could invent a concentration
That could serve to loosen mental knots.

Music was my early fascination
As the world resounded in its flow.
At an age of sparse communication
How far would this take me - can I know?

Then... music found me....

Empty Skies

Thank you, my friends,
For the howls & the scowls.
From my bearded white jowls
To a stomach that growls.

Requiescamus In Pace

Requiescamus in Pace, but RIP Me Not

RIP me not from duty binding,
When I still have work to do

Let There Be Blue!

Let there be life in the evening sky;
Let there be peace - at least let us try.
Let there be hope in a world of distress;
Let there be sunshine and warm happiness!

Que Haya Azul

¡Que haya vida en un cielo de noche;
¡Que haya paz - quizás sin reproche!
¡Que haya esperanza en mundo tan frío;
¡Que haya sol, bienestar sin lío!


Halleluiah - you ARE da Cutie!
Mercy me … a cosmic beauty
Out of the fishbowl
And into my wish toll!
